and kings ...
Now that you're all through with registering and have all those eight
hours (WE recommend taking only two-all work and no play makes Jill
a dull girl, etc.' well in hand, you can stop worrying about the scholastic
side of the summer until that fateful week in August when finals come.
Personally, we just aren't thinking about that week-YET! Anyway, what
we're leading up to is that each and every one of you should concentrate
on the recreational side of the summer -. -
What you are going to do with those long summer days shouldn't bother
you a bit. A. A. offers just lots of wonderful things, and you don't even
have to look them up yourself. We've investigated all possibilities for you.
First, if you're the athletic type or want to get your sweet sixteen
figure back, you can go out for some of the physical ed. classes that tle
summer session offers. You can choose from Modern Dance, Tap Dancing,
Archery, Golf, Riding, Tennis, Swimming and Badminton classes. And
in case you want to make it a twosome all these classes except swimming,
golf, and tennis are open to both men and women.
Take Your Playmates To ...
For those who don't want to take special classes but just want to play
when they feel like it, there are several excel-
lent golf courses around Ann Arbor, also sev-
eral very good riding stables. To show
off that daring new bathing suit or to get a
good tan or just to swim, you can go to Portage
Lake (via Dexter), Whitmore Lake, Loch Al-
-pine, or Barton Pond, and oh, yes, if you don't
have a car you can go to the Union pool for
recreational swimming Tuesdays and Thurs-
days at 11 in the morning and from 8:30 to
9:30 in the evening.
If you're not a sports fan, but still want to be in the sun, out in the
open air, reveling in that wonderful (?) A. A. weather, you can always go
walking (Arboretum recommended) or get a sturdy beach chair and bask
in the sun.
The social outlook for the summer ought to make you all sit up and
take notice.
Friday night a grand reception will be held at the Horace Rackham
School. You'll meet everybody from everywhere there and it ought to be



as lovely and as "like-you" as. it is during the
other months. You'll admit there's cool comfort
in a hair-do that won't allow for straggling
ends. You'll also admit that "topnotch" per-
fection renders you self-confident in any social
Believe it or not, our hairdressing processes are
downright refreshing, even on the warmest days.
Come to DiMattia's for your hair-trimming,
hair-shaping, permanents, finger-waves, mani-
cures and all the best in beauty treatments.

Lastex For Freedom In Seas

Along with all the current hulla-
baloo about "freedom of the seas"
and the inviolability of the Monroe
Doctrine, goes freedom of movement
and the Mexican influence in the
new summer bathing suit and play-
suit styles.
For weekends at a cottage on the
shores of Lake Huron or Michigan,
a "must" for the serious swimmer
is an elastic swim suit, designed to
assure greater freedom of movement.
Combination playsuits and swimn
suits, either one or two piece, are
more practical for the beach lounger,

and can be made just as stunning
cis a lastex suit. The dressmaker
suit, that erstwhile favorite of the
old and infirm, has enjoyed a pre-
nomenal rise to popularity among
the young fry this season. Matching
sbort coats for beach wear are a
frequent complement to these suits.
Playsuits fit for the tennis court,
picnics or canoeing may be either
shorts, slacks or skirts with halter
tops or shirts. The shorts-and-skirt
combination goes very well fLr the
particular case of the woman student
at the University.

Lovett To Open
SquareJ Pance
For the third consecutive year,
Benjamin B. Lovett of the Dearborn
Edison Institute will conduct tonight
the first of a series of six square
dancing classes to be held at 7:45
p.m. each Monday in the League
These dancing classes mark the
opening of the League social pro-
gram for the 1940 Summer Session
and are presented free of charge for
the benefit of all students enrolled
in the University.
The enthusiasm of the partici-
pants in the dance last year promp-
ted the return engagement of Mr.
Lovett who will instruct interested
students on the principles of the
walk, quadrille formation, badger
gavots, waltzes and other variations
of basic square dance steps. Last
year, Mr. Lovett was originally sche-
duled for a series of four lessons but
by popular request, the series was
extended to six.
Because of the large attendance
at the square dance lessons, students
are urged to come early to eliminate
any possibility of being turned away.
There will be adequate facilities for
those wishing to witness the classes.
In cooperation with Mr. Lovett,
the Henry Ford Square Dance Or-
chestra of Dearborn will again fur-
nish the music. The members of this
musical organization are selected
musicians especially trained for this
type of dancing.
Crowd Attends

More Than 400 Throng
Ballroom Saturday
A lively crowd of more than 400
students of the Summer Session in-
augurated the League's social pro-
gram at this first event of the sea-
son held from 9 p.m. to midnight
Saturday in the League Ballroom.
Dancing enthusiasts, ranging in
rank from freshmen to graduates,
danced to the music of Earl Stevens
and his 10-piece band. A feature of
the summer dances noted Saturday
was the presence of the stag line,
which is notably absent from winter
dances at the University.
