coming active in League affairs
from' the beginning of school, wo-
men become familiar with the op-
portunities which the University
offers them and form many
friendships, too," Barbara Maler,
'59, League president, said.

Each spring the University is
the scene of a well-planned and
relaxing weekend of fun.
On alternate years the Women's

parade and two nights of fun with

Spring. In 1959 Spring Weekend
Although there was some dis-
cussion last year of making Michi-

Weekend will remain.. "With its

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 co-
chairmen, Steve Davis, '59BAd.,
and Penny Palmer, '60, students
can 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 Hill 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'il' Abner,"' enter-
tained the audience by drawing his
famous cartoon characters. The
skits were varied, ranging from the
winning production of a Japanese.
tragedytoa choralreading.
The day' activity came to an
end after "Skit Night" when
Snootrac led the audidnce from
Hill Auditorium to the diagonal
for a "Jazz-Jamboree Mass Sing"
and entertainment by a jazz band,
a quartet and a juggler.,
Throughout the two-day dura-

kesys. Also featured were relays and
obstacle races and a "Sadie Hawk-
ins" bicycle race held at ,Palmer
