UAC Adds

Excitement to





World Artists Perform

The catchy initials UAC stand
for University Activities Center,
an organization of the students,
by the students, and for the stu-
dents. It is responsible for many
of the campus social activities
and much of its intellectual fer-
It is the offspring of the mer-
ger between the men's Union and
the women's League, and still
makes abundant use of the re-
sources of both.
UAC is the driving force behind
such annual festivities as Home-

coming and Winter Weekend.
This year, it will sponsor a new
event, Labor Day Weekend, to re-
lieve the boredom characteristic
of the first weekend of the fall
This latest addition will feature
Louis Armstrong. Another attrac-
tion will be "The King and His
Court," a four-man semi-profes-
sional softball team who will take
on challenges from any quarter.
There will also be an all-campus
picnic, a song fest, free films,
and a car rally. The weekend will
be brought to a grand and glor-

ious finale Monday night with a
fireworks display.
Homecoming Weekend staged
in October, will include, accord-
ing to UAC Vice-President Roslyn
Braeman, "just about everything
typical of Homecoming." Although
this year there will be an attempt
to make the event "more for
alums." The Campus Queen
Beauty contest, 'which was initi-
ated last year, will be continued.
The major social event of the
winter semester will be Winter
Weekend, for which the detailed
arrangements are yet to be made.

der the direction of Lester Mc-
Coy, will give their annual per-
formance of Handel's "Messiah."
The Choral Union, founded in
1879, was originally the outgrowth
of a "Messiah Club" made up of
singers from several local church-
es. The group now numbers about,
300 singers, including both towns-
people and students.
Messian Concerts
In addition to its "Messiah"
concerts, the Choral Union has
since 1894 participated in the an-
nual May Festivals. This year, as
