Homecoming Sparks Creativity

JUNIOR PANHELLENIC:
Pledge Group Aids Panhel in Pro

By ANN EJUBLER
Tons of chickenwire, cartons of
napkins and lumber, animals,
storybook characters and football
players.
After weeks of fervid prepara-
tion and anxious anticipation
comes Homecoming weekend, an-
nual event on campus since the
year 1898 when the alums re-
turned to play the varsity.
Front lawns of each of the 98
residence halls, fraternities and
sororities are literally littered
with materials of all types suit-
able for building the display
which, each house hopes, will win
first prize.
Figures Constructed
Yellow, blue, green and varied
shades of red napkins are handed
back and forth between members
of the house as they are poked
into chicken wire for the figures
of their display. Other houses use
paper mache and paint to an-
nounce their hopes that Michigan
will be the victors in the game.
Elbow grease is plentiful at par-

ties given by some houses on Fri-
day night. These "build the dis-
play" parties have coeds and men
alike hard at work to complete the
display by Judging time the next
morning. Usually, residents of the
houses pull "all-nighters" prepar-
ing their entry.
The annual Mudbowl game be-
tween Sigma Alpha Epsilon and
Phi Delta Theta on Saturday
morning and a Mudbowl queen of
fraternity contestants submitted
by each sorority . . . that's part
of Homecoming too.
Soccer, Dog Race Scheduled
So is the traditional soccer
game between Collegiate Soro-
sis and Kappa Alpha Theta soror-
ities and the St. Bernard race on
the Diag between Delta Upsilon's
Brandy It and Lambda, Chi Al-
pha's Major IV.
The 'Homecoming game in the
afternoon honors returned alums
and the band presents a special
halftime show. The winners of the
Homecoming displays are also an-
nounced.,

Each year Homecoming has a
theme, and the displays are built
around that theme. Homecoming
1957 was "Mythigan Year," and
the Mythigan "spirit" was Pan,
pastoral god of fertility from
Greek mythology. Displays were
constructed to represent myths.
Dance Ends Day
Dancing to the music of a "big-
name" band is a final part of the
University's Homecoming. Last"
year Duke Ellington played for
the annual event. Other bands
that have appeared on campus for
the Homecoming Dance are Tom-
my Dorsey, Count Basie, Billy
May, Claud Thornhill, Woody
Herman and Elliott Lawrence.
Hardest working of the Home-
coming committees is the Central
Committee, which sees that every-
thing is going according to sched-
ule, approves the ideas for dis-
plays, has charge of the judging
and does numerous things to make
the weekend a pleasure to every-'
one on campus.

Junior Panhellenic Association,
Just as the name implies, is the
daughter organization to Panhel-
lenic Association.
Begun in 1949, it was felt that
a junior organization such as this
would acquaint sorority pledges
with the working of Panhel, as
well as give them a chance to
meet their fellow pledges.'
Furthering cooperation among
sororities of the University and
unifying the interests of sorority
and non-sorority women are two
main ideals of Jr. Panhel, accord-
ing to its constitution.
Cooperation Stressed
The constitution further states
that Jr. Panhel should .strive to
further fine intellectual 'achieve-
ment and sound scholarship, to
cooperate with the University ad-"
ministration in the maintenance
of high standards and to promote
cooperation with other campus
and community activities.
Junior Interfraternity Council
and Jr. Panhel work closely to-
gether each year. Traditionally,.
they co-sponsor. two projects-the
Michigan Association for Retarded-
Children Drive, which takes place

4.

in the fall, and Help Week, a
spring activity.,
MARCD sees pledges engaged in
door to door campaign for funds.
Each year, the campaign closes
with a social mixer, sponsored
Jointly by the two associations.
Help Week Scheduled
A service to the University,' as
well as to underprivileged children
is provided when fraternity and
sorority pledges undertake to clean
up the University Fresh Air Camp
at Pinckney. Helping to assure a

summer recreatio
