To Hold Monte Carlo Dance
Tonight in Union Ballroom

MUSKET Cast Rehearses

Tonight the International Stu-
dents Association will present the
annual Monte Carlo Ball in the
Union Ballroom.
Starting at 9 p.m., the semi-
formal affair will continue until
midnight, with music provided by
Harris Jackson's band.
Campus-Wide Event
Marilyn Nathan, '59, chairman
of the dance, remarked that "this
is the big social event of Inter-
national Week - and it's an all-
campus affair."
Theme of the Ball will be "A
Cruise on the Riviera," Miss
Nathan said. Decorations will be
in keeping with this theme, she
said, and the decorations commit-
tee is erecting a gangplank at the
entrance to the door, to get the
atmosphere of a cruiser right at
the beginning.
Decorations will also include
portholes flanking the gangplank,
a large smokestack behind the
band with smoke-letters spelling
out "Monte Carlo Ball," and in
the center of the ballroom, a huge
eight-foot anchor will be suspend-
ed, she commented.
A wooden anchor, which was to
be used as a decoration for the
dance was stolen yesterday from
the basement workshop of the
Student Activities Building, Miss
Nathan said last night. She urged
that it be returned, because it was
to be a central element in the
dance decorations.
To Play Games
One ballroom will be set off
for "games in the Monte Carlo
tradition," Miss Nathan remarked,
and the members of the Univer-
sity hockey team will run the
The terrace will be set up like a
night club, and refreshments will
be served there, she said. "There's
a piano on the side, and I'm hop-
ing people will play it spontane-
ously." she added.
At the dance will be a floor
show, she said, which will start
at about 10 p.m. Master of cere-
monies for the entertainment will

be Sergio Scarabello, Grad., of
The entertainment will include
an Iraqi drum act, a Hawaiian
hula dance, Philippine bamboo
dancers ,and Israeli folk dancers,
Miss Nathan said.
"The Monte Carlo Ball is really
carrying out the idea of Inter-
national Week," she commented.
"On the planning committee we
have students from Japan, Ha-
waii, the Dutch West Indies, Egypt
and America."
Merchants Donate

World's Fair To Exhibit Cultures
Of Various Countries Tomorrow



"Baofoot Bay #ih Cheek.)


When Pancho Sigafoos, sophomore, pale and sensitive, first saw
Willa Ludowie, freshman, lithe as a hazel wand and rosy as the
dawn, he hemmed not; neither did he haw. "I adore you," he
said without preliminary.
"Thanks, hey," said Willa, flinging her apron over her fwce
modestly. "What position do you play?"
"Position?" said Pancho, looking at her askance. (The
askance is a ligament just behind the ear.)
"On the football team," said Willa.
"Football!" sneered Pancho, his young lip curling. "Football
is violence, and violence is the death of the mind. I am not a
football player. I am a poet!"
"So long, buster," said Willa
"Wait!" cried Pancho, clutching her damask forearm.
She placed a foot on his pelvis and wrenched herself free.
"I only go with football players," she said, and walked, shimmer-
ing, into the gathering dusk.

Tomorrow will mark the biggest
event, in terms of numbers of
people participating, of Interna-
tional Week - the World's Fair,
Maurice Zilber, '60, Union execu-
tive councilman, said.;
Starting at 1 p.m., the fair will
be open continuously until 1 a.m.,
he said. Admission to the Fair will
be charged this year, as well as to
the variety show which will be
held during the evening.
Zilber pointed out that all the
proceeds of the Fair will go to two
special projects-the International
Students Emergency Loan Fund,'
and the International Handbook.
To Publish Book
The International Handbook is
similar to the "M" Handbook
which is published for incoming
freshmen to the University, he
said, but will describe general
customs of American life for the
international students, as well as
customs of University life.
Theme of the Fair this year is
"Brussels in Ann Arbor," Zilber
commented. An Atomium, a repli-
ca of the one which was the
symbol of the recently held Brus-
sels World's Fair, will be in the
Union during the Fair.
Posters Donated
The United States government
and the Belgian government have
donated posters from the Fair, and
they will be given out during the
Fair. The State Department has
also donated pictures of the
American exhibit at the Brussels
Fair, and these will be on display
on the first floor of the Union, he

The International Center has
compiled a booklet of international
recipes and donated them to the
Fair, where they will be given out
during the day, Zilber added.
Events Scheduled
During the afternoon, there will
be two special events in the ball-
room, alternating during the af-
ternoon, he said. One will be an
exhibit on the "Art of Self-De-
fense," a display of skill in judo.
Alternating with it will be sev-
eral movie shorts, one compiled
by a national broadcasting net-
work about the Brussels Fair, and
other shorts depicting the Arab,
Venezuelan and Indonesian gov-
ernments, among others.
To Present Show
During the evening, starting at
7 p.m., the Fair will present an
international variety show, he
said. Master of ceremonies for the
program will be Gunay Aktay,
"This program will present the
best of international talent on

campus," Zilber said. Included In
the show will be 11 acts from 11
different countries, including two
of the acts which appeared in the
half-time show during the Indi-
ana-Michigan football game-the
Israeli and the Ukrainian folk
'Have Talent'
The title of the variety show
will be, "Have Talent, Have
Travelled," Zilber said. Also at the
show, the League will announce
the winners of the display contest
which was held in the housing
units during the week.
The Fair is organized by the
Union in conjunction with the
nationality clubs of the Interna-
tional Students Association, Zilber
said. This is the second annual
"World's Fair" presented on this
Admission to the Fair will be 25
cents during the afternoon and 50
cents during the evening. There
will also be a 50 cent admission
charge to the variety show, Zilber

Friday, November 21 . . . 4 o'Clock


Friday and


Pancho went to his room and lit a cigarette and pondered his
dread dilemma. What kind of cigarette did Pancho light? Why,
Philip Morris, of corris!
Philip Morris is always welcome, but never more than when
you are sore beset. When a fellow needs a friend, when the heart
is dull and the blood runs like sorghum, then, then above all,
is the time for the mildness, the serenity, that only Philip Morris
can supply.
Pancho Sigafoos, his broken psyche welded, his fevered brow
cooled, his synapses restored, after smoking a fine Philip Morris,
came to a decision. Though he was a bit small for football (an
even four feet) and somewhat overweight (427 pounds), he tried
out for the team-and tried out with such grit and gumption
that he made it.
Pancho's college opened the season against the Manhattan
School of Mines, always a mettlesome foe, but strengthened
this year by four exchange students from Gibraltar who had been
suckled by she-apes. By the middle of the second quarter the
Miners had wrought such havoc upon Pancho's team that there
was nobody left on the bench but Pancho. And when the
quarterback was sent to the infirmary with his head driven
straight down into his esophagus, the coach had no choice but
to put Pancho in.
Pancho's teammates were not conspicuously cheered as the
little fellow took his place in the huddle.
"Gentleman," said Pancho, "some of you may regard poetry
as sissy stuff, but now in our most trying hour, let us hark to
these words from Paradise Lost: 'All is not lost; the uncon-
querable will and study of revenge, immortal hate, and courage
never to submit or yield':' "
So stirred was Pancho's team by this fiery exhortation that
they threw themselves into the fra, wth uttin. hnA-a A n
