With almost every ticket sold,

the night of Feb. 8, announced
Harry Wallace, general chairman,
yesterday. A few tickets still re-

for groups will be combined if nee-
essary, Allen said.
To Use New Gymnasiqm
The locale for the 1930 J-Hop
has been changed from the historic
Waterman and Barbour gymnasi+
ums to the large gymnasium of th9
New Intramural building, the floor
space of which is nearly equal to
that of the other two together. The
setting will be an ultra-modernis-
tic one, with indirect lighting ef-
fects falling upon vari-colored win-
dows and columns reaching to the
ceiling. Several tones and combi-
nations of light will be at the om-
mand of the committee during the
course of the evening. While some
improvements have been made in
the design, the effect is much the
same now as was shown in the
small model which appeared in a
State street window before the
CUhrlstas recess.
The drehestras will be located in
the middle of the sides, instead of
at the ends. The music will be
furnished by Coon Sanders' Origi-
nal Nighthawks from the Black-
hawk cafe in Chicago, and by one
of the the three orchestras:Charlie
Straight and his Brunswick Re-
cording orchestra, now at the Ad-
dison hotel in*Detroit, Earl Hoff-
man and his music, from the Chez
Pierre night club in Chicago, or
Buddy Fisher and his orchestra
from the Green Mill in Chicago.
Straght Is Possibility
Straight is the best possibility if
difference between the Music Cor-
poration and the union can be
straightened. Hoffman is awaiting
a decision of a Chicago court' in
regard to closing the Chez Pierre
for a violation of the liquor law.
Fisher has been master of cere
monies at the Avalon theater in
Chicago; last summer he scored a
success at the opening of 'the East-
wood Park ballroom in Detroit, and
has been forging to the front ranks
of orchestra leaders since.
