Plans Announced
By French Club

tion for those interested in France
and the French language, will pre-
sent an address by Professor Vin-
cent Scanio, of the University, to-
day at 3:30 p.m. in 429 Mason Hall.

"Need the Teacher be Isolated?"
An informal meeting will follow
the address at 4:45 p.m.
La Petite Causette is an activity
group open to all. Every Friday
afternoon at 3:30 p.m. a group of
people, eager to brush up their
French in informal conversation
over a glass of something cold, will
gather in the Round-up Room of
the Michigan League.



Summer Session

"President of the League is a
big job," says Nina Katz, who has
taken over the top executive duties
for the summer session.
Miss Katz, a sophomore in liter-
ary school, has had experience in
numerous campus activities prev-
ious to this position. She sold tick-

piano. In connection with her mu-
sic appreciation, Miss Katz is a
member of the Bach Choir, the
University Choir and Hillel Choir
and Supper Club.
She also served as programs
chairman and readings chairman
of Alice Lloyd last year. In her
spare time, Miss Katz plays the
piano, and participates in tennis,
baseball and other sports. She also
enjoys reading "for pleasure."
As President of the Michigan
League, Miss Katz' duties include
serving as chairman of the Wom-
en's League Council and the Wom-
en's Senate, which functions dur-
ing the regular term.
She is also ex-officio Vice-chair-
man of the League Board of Gov-
ernors and an ex-officio member
of the Students Affairs Commit-
tee, besides serving on the Ethel
A. McCormick Scholarship Com-
League Center
Inasmuch as the League is the
center of all women's activities on
campus and the head of women's
student government, it serves to
unite a large and varied student
community. Another one of the
president's jobs is to correlate the
functions and activities of the
League with those of the Union
and other student organizations
on campus.
The League offers women train-
ing in organization, opportunities
for service to the University com-
munity and a chance to express
Miss Katz feels that the League
"is one of the best ways to get
acquainted with the University
and other students."

Lloyd's teams in the recent cam-
pus tournament and is correspond-
ing secretary of her sorority, Delta
Phi Epsilon, formerly Adelphi.
Musical Interests
The League President is particu-
larly interested in classical as well
as popular music, and plays the
Packing Pr~c
Coeds are dusting off their suit-
cases in anticipation of the coming
fourth of July weekend, the only
vacation "break" in the Summer
With many cars leaving for the:
upper peninsula of Michigan and
for Florida, the woodland beaches
and sunny South will be some of
the most popular gathering places
for University students this week-
Many women students are look-
ing mournfully at their small suit-
cases and the huge piles of clothes
to go in them, wondering how to
make the most of the limited lug-
gage space.
For hints, socks, handkerchiefs
and other small items slip neatly
and easily into the tips of shoes.
Purses make wonderful protectors
for gloves and evening purses.
International Center
A "Classical Music" hour will
be held from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at
the International Center today.

Hats, items which are always a
packing problem, provide resting
places for jewelry and small cos-
metic bottles (carefully sealed to
prevent spilling.)
Experienced travelers say that
careful folding and placing is the
secret to arriving at their destina-
tion with wrinkle-free clothes and
neat orderly suitcases.
Tissue paper folded into dresses,
suits and blouses will help prevent
crushing and preserve pleats and
creases, especially with summer
Color Schemes
To help stretch a travel ward-
robe and increase the luggage
space, women students are eyeing
the advantages of separates they
can mix and match. Choosing one
concentrated color scheme helps to
decrease the number of shoes, hats
and purses that must be taken.
Coeds heading for the beaches
will find that the basic essential
for their wardrobe will be bathing
suits. The other necessary addition
to the summer vacation list is an
informal afternoon dress for sight-
seeing and dancing.
