Ball Is Second
Of Important
Events Of Year,
All Fraternities Take Part
In Fmnetion To Promote
Good Fellowship
Second in a series of important so-
cial events of the year, the Interfra-
ternity Ball tonight promises to rival
the first in popularity. The first of
the series was given September 30,
1933. James Doty, '34, was in charge.
"The purpose of the function, Mr.
Doty stated, "was to create better
feeling among fraternity men at
Michigan." He also explained that
all fraternities, regardless of size and
prestige, took a part.
The proceeds from the previous
dance went to the Interfraternity
Council treasury to reduce the
amount of the annual dues which
each member fraternity must pay.
Only those fraternities which are
members of the council may pur-
chase tickets. Duane Yates' orches-
tra is to play.
