By KATHLEEN MOORE
Each spring, the University is
the scene of a well-planned and
relaxing weekend of fun.
On alternate years the Women's
Athletic Association and the Mich-
igan Union! co - sponsor Spring
Weekend and Michigras. Michi-
gras, a carnival complete with
parade and two nights of fun with
games of chance, floor shows and
carnival rides, was presented last
Spring. In 1959 Spring Weekend
reigns.
Although there was some dis-
cussion last year of making Michi-
gras an annual affair, Spring
Weekend will remain. "With its
great potential, we feel that Spring
Weekend will fill the bill to the ex-
tent that Michigras would every
year," Barry Shapiro, '59, Union
president said.
New Weekend Planned
According to this year's coy
chairmen, Steve Davis, '59BAd.,
and Penny Palmer, '60, students
scan expect an entirely new Spring-
Weekend. They will begin formu-
lating definite plans for the affair
sometime early this fall.
All the events of Spring Week-
end in 1957 were based on the
theme/ "Cartoonival," symbolized
by a character named Snootrac..
Festivities began on a Friday
afternoon with a Darby Parade of
33 two-wheeled, decorated carts
drawn by squads of costumed stu-
dents.: At the finish line in front
of the League, the carts were
judged and points awarded to the
housing units sponsoring the win-
ning darbys.
Chariot Race Held
Also part of the afternoon's
events was a chariot race in which'
many of the darbys took part. It,
too, was held beside the League
and more points went to the win-
ners' sponsors.'
Friday night the major event of
Spring Weekend, "Skit Night," was
presented in Biill Auditorium with
cartoonist, Al Capp, serving as
master of ceremonies. Between the
six skits presented by 12 men's
and women's housing units, Capp,
originator of "L'll Abner," !enter-'
tained the audience by drawing his
famous cartoon characters. The
skits were varied, ranging from the
winning production of a Japanese
tragedy to a choral reading.
The day's activity came to an
end after "Skit Night" when
Snootrac led the audience from
Hill Auditorium to the diagonal
for a "Jazz-Jamboree Mass Sing"
and entertainment by a jazz band,
a quartet and a juggler.

A variety of outdoor events
scheduled for Saturday had to be
moved into Waterman Gymnasium
due to the well-known Ann Arbor
rain, but a little bit of water was
not enough to dampen the spirits
of the students.
A faculty team played a team of
students in a hilarious game of
baseball-all players rode, on don--
keys. Also featured were relays and
obstacle races and a "Sadie Hawk-
ins" bicycle race held at Palmer
Field between showers.
Prizes Awarded
Spring Weekend concluded Sat-
urday night with a concert by the
Michigan Men's Glee Club and a
semi-formal dance, "Comic Cotil-
lion," held in Waterman Gym-
nasium.
The co-chairmen added up the
total points won by each housing
unit and awarded the top men's,
and women's house's hi-fi phono-
graphs as grand prizes.
Whatever the events of this
year's Spring Weekend, it promises
to be another fun-filled, relaxing,
all-campus event.
