Led by the University Marching
Band, the Michigras parade will
begin this afternoon at 2:45 at the
Farmer's Market and proceed to
the downtown and campus area,
arriving at the campus at 3:30.
It will proceed down State
Street from Washington, pass the
Union, and turn left at South Uni-
versity. From there the parade
will proceed to East University, an
addition to the route. This will
alleviate some of the crowding
along State Street, as spectators
can now line up on South Univer-
sity to view the parade. The dis-
persal points will be at South Uni-
versity and East University.
This year's Michigras parade
will consist of 28 floats contributed
by the houses, fraternities, and
sororities, working in pairs, seven
high school bands from the area,
and 15 special attractions.
Eight of the special features are
from the campus area. They are:
The Pershing Rifles Color Guard;
the fraternity dogs; trick horse-
back riders; the Fiji band; baton
twirling by John Kirkendall; the
Air Force drill team, the Sheriff's
possee, the old Ann Arbor fire
engine; and possibly the AFROTC
band and a boat from the sailing
During the parade, the floats
will be judged by President Harlan
Hatcher; Mayor Cecil O. Creal;
Mrs. Elizabeth Davenport, assist-
ant dean of women; Prof. Robert
Igelhart, chairman of the art de-
partment; and Neil W. Talling,
of the Chrysler Corporation.
