The Barristers Society of the
Law School will hold its annual
Crease Ball April 18.
The history of the ball goes
back to old England when the
barristers and law students in
the English legal system pressed
their pants once a year. In com-

dance would,, be held in their
To uphold the English tradi-
tion, the Barristers Society, a
senior honorary formed in 1904,
began sponsoring the annual
Crease Ball in 1947.
This dance took the place of the
'mbre raucous B.V.D. Dance which
was sponsored jointly by the Bar.-
risters with the Vulcans and the
Druids, two other University
honoraries, and which had to be.

The ball, to be held in the Law-
yers Club in the Law Quadrangle,
will feature the distribution of
the Michigan Law Review and

These cases were compiled by
members of the Barristers So-

To aid to the excitement of

To Give Council
To Freshmen
Now that they are "worldly
wise," upperclassmen will have a
chance to pass on the benefits of
their years on campus as coun-
selors at the Office of Religious
Affairs' annual Freshman Ren-
dezvous this coming fall.
The three-day pre-orientation
camp, according to Program Di-
rector Harold Duerksen, is de-
signed to give new students "in-
formation abot the campus and
the new experiences college life
will present to them," as well as
to acquaint them with the reli-
gious resources at the University.
To staff the two camping ses-
sions, the first from September
v 10 through 13 and the second
from September 13 to 1, between
50 and 60 students will be needed,
Duerksen said. Any interested stu-
dent may obtain an application
at Lane Hall through the April
10 deadline.
Before the selection of coun-
selors Is made, final candidates
will be interview by the Rendez-
vous Policy Board.
Last year's activities at the
University's Fresh Air Camp on
Patterson Lake ranged from fac-
ulty and student-led discussions,
a panel on extra-curricular acti-
vities and religious worship to a
variety show, folk sing, square
dance and team sports.

Assembly Dormitory Council
passed a motion Monday suggest-
ing that residence halls change
their constitutions to allow one
person to serve as representative
to both ADC and Women's Sen-
The proposal, Pat Marthenke,
'59, president of Assembly Asso-
ciation, said. would make a;
"greater liaison" between Assem-
bly and Panhellenic Association
If the plan goes into effect, she
said, Senate would meet only
when major issues of general in-
terest to all women students
arose, as in the recent joint meet-
ings of Senators, ADC represen-
tatives and Panhellenic delegates
to discuss the advantages and
disadvantages of spring rush.
Amend Motion
Due to a division of opinion on
the proposal to combine the posi-
tions, the motion was amended
to allow each house council to
decide the policy for its own hous-
ing unit.
The change in the motion was

necessary, Miss Marthenke ex-
plained, because acceptance of it
entails changing the houses' con-
stitution. She suggested that
houses not in favor of the plan
keep separate, delegates and re-
evaluate the effectiveness of each
type of representation next year.
One ADC member voiced the
opinion that one representative
holding both positions could more
effectively deal with such issues.
Hear Opinions
A single delegate could thus
hear the opinions of the inde-
pendent women in ADC meetings
and those of both independents
and affiliates at Women's Senate
meetings, she explained.
The opinion of one of the hous-
ing units, its delegate said, was
that such a proposal would limit
representation to too great an ex-
The opinions available on any
issue, she said, would be much
smaller and the house council,
she pointed out, felt any limita-
tion beyond that already imposed
by the decrease in representation
in ADO would not be desirable.

icana, Prof. Peckham explained.
The Library's present collection
follows this pattern, with books
covering the history of America
from the earliest exploration to
the recent. past.
The Associates, a private group
comprising half University alumni
and half "friends," donates new
items'to theLibrary'scollection
each year.
Gifts Displayed
This year they have given
around twenty items, Prof. Peck-
ham said. These books will -be on
display at the celebration.
Since it was started in 1984, the
year after Clements's death, the
celebration has taken many forms.
In the beginning, Prof. Peckham
explained, the gathering was a
small assembly of Clements's
With the years, the group grew
larger and later on, when the
organizers "ran out of people who
knew Clements," Dr. Peckham
said, other, features were added
including regular speakers and
sometimes a musical program. A
