Chairmen Plan New Star Revue

To Highlight Michigras

-Daily-Juan Rodriguez
SELECTED-Harvey Lapides, '60, (left) and Joan Machalski,
'60A&D, were named co-chairmen of the 1960 Michigras weekend.
They predict that "one of the most fabulous college weekends"
will be better next year.

Harvey Lapides, '60, and Joan
Machalski, '60A&D, co-chairmen
of the 1960 Michigras, plan an in-
novation in the traditional pro-
"We would like to stage a revue,"
Lapides explained, "a variety show.
He added that they would try
to hire a star comedian to be the
master-of-ceremonies and a star
act. "We would like to get some-
one like Jerry Lewis or Bob Hope,"
Lapides said. The revue would

feature the winners of various
campus shows, including Lantern
Night and the IHC-Assembly Sing,'
they said.M
Held at Ferry Field
The revue would be held at old
Ferry Field on Saturday afternoon.
By Saturday, Miss Mach alski
noted, all of the floats and booths
have been constructed. The first
evening of the carnival will have
been over.
"In the past," Miss Machalski
said, "Saturday afternoon has

been spent on private picnics and
other activities away from the
center of the weekend. The revue
would keep everyone close to the
center of things, and it would give
those who have been working hard
all week a chance to relax and be
Follow Traditional Pattern
Except for the possibility of the
revue, Michigras will follow its
traditional pattern. Miss Machal-
ski and Lapides predicted that
Michigras, "the weekend when
everyone puts their books away,"
will be better than ever next year.
Declaring that Michigras is
"one of the most fabulous college
weekends in the nation," Miss Ma-
chalski, added that its great at-
traction lies in its being "different
from anything else." "There are
so many people, so much color
and lights and preparation," she
The weekend will open with a
grand parade of floats built by
a male and female housing unit.
Like Mardi Gras
"It's like New Orleans' Mardi
Gras," Miss Machalski declared,
"with costumes and floats and
everyone being merry."
On Friday night, the double
carnival will open. On the Mid-
way, next to Yost Field House,
there will be rides of all kinds.
"Last year," Lapides recalled,
"they had a ride that worked on
centrifugal force. It spun you
round and round, raising the plat-
form each time, until you were
spinning horizontally. They are
really unusual rides," he said.
Operate Booths
Inside the Field House, the vari-
ous housing units will operate
three sorts of booths. There will
be concession booths, which sell
food in unusual settings which fol-
low the theme of Michigras, orig-
inal skill booths and entertain-
ment establishments.
Michigras had its beginnings in
a County Fair in -1902, a- fund-
raising project of the Women's
Athletic Association and the "M"
Club. The traditional parade was
first added in 1905, and the affair
assumed its present aspect, al-
though the name "Michigras" was
not acquired until 1937.
