Arabian Nights
Designed For
Architect's Ball
Setting Was Planned By
Fred Graham; Entrance
Is By Cave Of Sesame
The mystic cave of Sesame, with alt
the glamoi ous characters that at one
time or another pronounced the magic
works that would push aside the rocks
and enable them to enter its dark con-
fines will be transported in its en-
tirety from the mythical lands of
the Arabian Nights to form the set-
ting of the 1934 Architect's Party.
The design for the party, based on
the name Ramadan Bayram, was ex-
ecuted by Fred Graham, '35A, and
was chosen after the contest in which
the design was submitted had pre-
viously ended in a tie. It was adjudged
the best by a jury made up of mem-
bers of the College of Architecture
faculty and members of the party
The guests will enter a replica of
the portals of the huge cave opposite
which will be a large globe in which
the orchestra will be placed. On either
side of the globe genii hold large
bowls from which clouds of vapor will
arise to veil the bandstand.
Ali Baba, the calif of Bagdad and
others who figured prominently in
the tales of the Arabian Nights will be
represented around the walls of the
cave under the flowing branches of
exotic trees. The dimness of the il-
lumination of the original cave will
be effected through the use of Per-
sian lamps which will be hung from
the ceiling.
Lounges for committee members
and other guests will be arranged on
either side of the orchestra stand and
a balcony will be built just above the
entrance to the cave for the patrons
and patronesses.
Alpha Alpha Gamma, women's hon-
orary architecture sorority will spon-
sor an open house on the afternoon.
of the day of the party, Friday, May
11. Genevieve Hafner, '34A, is in
charge of the affair.
Tickets for the party will go on
sale Friday morning. They are priced
at $2 and may be obtained at Slater's
East University store, the Union,
Waher's and from committeemen.
Orchestras which are being con-
sidered for the party are Bobby Wood-
ruff who played for last year's Slide
Rule dance, McKinney's Cotton Pick-
ers and Maurie Sherman, according to
Don Lyon, '34A, general chairman.
The choice of orchestra will be made
by the end of this week, Lyon said.

"'Tis of Michigan'


Vassar has its Daisy Chain and
Wellesley its Hoop Day, but at Mich-
igan it is the traditional Lantern
Night that is the culmination of wom-
en's class activities.
If the handful of maidens that pa-
raded down the hill in Sleepy Hollow
in the first Lantern Night procession
could see the hundreds of participants
now as they form the big block "M"
at dusk, if they could glance about at
the setting with the immense Mosher-
Jordan Halls, Palmer Field House, and
Couzens Hall nearby, they would real-
ize what opening the University to
women over 50 years ago has brought

that has swept over the men of the
campus in the last decade? Where

The Engineers and the Laws were
bloody enemies and fought at the
drop of a hat, and now even the
prospect of raiding the rival formal
dance arouses little interest. The,
freshman-sophomore games call fQrth
only a semblance of the heated en-
thusiasm they once did; no longer
does the Council attempt to control
the use of knives, but has its trouble
arousing spirit.
Those co-eds who have to walk
through the Engineers Arch at noon
should sigh with deep relief that
they are not subjected to the observa-
tions and out-spoken opinions of the
senior engineers lined up on the
benches at either side..
The side walk there was covered
with the ratings of each member of
the fairer sex from A to E, as these
worthies deemed suitable. How those
women must have dreamed of revers-
ing positions and chalking up their
opinions . . . an occasional conver-
sation overheard in Angell Hall lobby
may mean that they do get their re-
venge, but not publicly.

equestrian points will be the basis of
After thepmembers have been se-
lected definite plans for the future

that the Club meet for a ride every
week, but attendance will be com-
pulsory only every other week.
The Club will sponsor a horse show

Miss Brucker urges all those inter-

For Evening Wear
PARIS, April 17. - ('P)-- Shimmer-
ing jewels and lacquered hair, flowers,
laces and feathers brighten the scene
when theasmart world appears at eve-
nung galas this season.
Jewels gleam from the waistlines of
trained lace gowns which trail up the
red carpeted staircase of the historic
old opera when a gala performance
is on. Flower bands encircle wrists,
feathers ornament coiffures, and hair
is sometimes lacquered at the brilliant
evening soirees.
Satins, laces and shimmering lames
clothe the chic figures which move
through salons and corridors in a
whirl of pale blue, shell pink, black,
white, bright red, silver and gold. An
occasional splash of banana yellow,
leaf green and violet adds variety
to the scene.
Heads Go' Lacuered
Heads are one of the most fasci-
nating features of evening ensembles.
At a recent soiree one chic Parisian
appeared with her hair tinted blue
lavendar to match the seven-eighths-
length blue lavender velvet coat she
wore over a silver lame gown. An-
other, who wore dark green chiffon,
had her hair lacquered and dressed
in a series of crisp cuils on top of
her head, while a blonde Russian
whose frock was black wore a diadem
of black paradise feathers curled in
small circles across the top of her
