Formal Will

Be Held At Lawyers


Speidel's Band
Will Play Forl
Annual Dance
Indirect Lighting With
Varying Color Effects Is
Decorative Scheme
Spring, they told us, came March
21, but the Lawyers will officially wel-,
come it tonight when they don the
customary flannels and escort young
ladies, in organdies and laces, to their
annual spring formal in the Lawyers
The club will cast aside for the time
its usual dignified, somber air, and,
though a novel decorative scheme
centered about a special system of
colored, indirect lighting a festive
atmosphere will be created, in keep-
ing with the occasion.
George Knowles, who has had gen-
eral charge of the dance, will at-
tend with Margaret Keal. The com-
mittee men and their guests, notables
of the club, and numerous others will
be present.
Dancing will be to the music of
Eddie Speidel's orchestra from Cleve-
land, which will be accompanied by
Jerry Dale, a torch singer. Speidel was
a student in the Law School last year.
Refreshments will be served during
the dance and a supper at midnight.
Stunt Night Shows
Stunt night at the League grill
this week featured a variety of home
talent. Among the performers were
Betty Bergener and Lucile Lucas who
sang "Crazy Rhythm" and "Bye-Bye
Blues" as duets. Then came Nan
'iebel, a featured performer in this
year's J.G.P., who offered a tap dance.
Marion Hill played a number of
popular songs as her piano solo.
Among them she included one of her
own compositions. Her numbers
were "Spin a Little Web of Dreams,"
"Stardust;" "Everything I Have Is
Yours," and "Moonlight Down In
As a decided novelty on a Stunt
Night program Edna Mae Gustave,
Edith Chubb, and Dick Fuller pre-
sented one of the numbers from "Jun-
iors on Parade," the dance recital
given recently by Roy Hoyer's danc-
ing classes.
Two students in the University,
Lucille Peloquin, '37, New Troy, and
Vernard McComb Stilson, Spec., Flint,
were married recently at a ceremony
solemnized in St. Mary's Student
Chapel. 'The Rev. Allen J. Babcock,
rector of the chapel, officiated.
They were attended by Joan An-
derson, '37, and Charles Young, '37E,
Mr. and Mrs. Stilson will continue
their studies.1

Backstage Happenings Just As,
Fuiin y As Those Out in Front

Enthusiastic audiences greeted the
premiere and second night perform-
ances of the new Union Opera "With
Banners Flying." They found the
struggle bctween the campus social-
ists and our R.O.T.C. men, as well
as the impersonations of prominent
faculty members, hilarious enough,
but had they been cognizant of the
happenings behind the scenes they
would have been even more amused.
Perhaps play-goers were annoyed
when an usher dashed madly down
the aisle and interrupted the antics
of the football chorus. However, the
intorvention was merited, in that he
was bringing flowers for our All-
American tackle. It seems that "Blon-
die" Wistert so entranced some mem-
ber of the audience that he was hon-
ored with a pink geranium. The card
read, "From an Unknown Admirer."
Stage door Johnnies are no unusu-
al sight at Broadway productions, but
imagine the surprise of the gentle-
man wanting a date with the charm-
ing, Lily Caboose when he found out
that Lily was none other than Thom-
as E. Powers, prominent Michigam-
But every chorine did not make
such tremendous successes. One gal
attempted to drown her sorrow be-
tween scenes - a thing not at all
impossible since the Whitney is lo-
cated west of Division street. That
she succeeded may be proved from
the fact that she was partly support-
ed during the finale. What would
Honor Society
Holds Initiation
Fo r Freshmen
Alpha Lambda Delta, honorary,
scholastic sorority for freshmen wom-
en, will hold its initiation at 4:30
tomorrow at the home of Dean Alice
Lloyd. After the ceremony Dean Lloyd
will honor the active members and
new initiates at a buffet supper.
Eligible for initiation into the so-
city are all those freshmen women
who have received a half A, half B
average for their first semester grades
this year or for the second semester
of last year.
Among this year's initiates are
Margaret W. Brackett, Thelma E.
Chasman, Muriel Curtis, Gail H. Duf-
fenback, Billie C. Faulkner, Betty J..
Flansburg, Elsie Hamilton, Voltairine
Hirsch, Phyllis L. Huston, Gretchen
C. Lilman, Marie E. Mette, Elsie A.
Pierce, Marguerite Knab, Nancy L.
Quirk, Helen C. Shapland, Grace O.
Snyder, Ona J. Thornton, Mary Lou
Traywick, Edythe D. Turtletaub, and
Louise Van Evera.

President Rutabaga or Dean Beer-
sley have to say about this?
The rest of the cast waited until
after the show for refreshments, at
which time they rendered the "Ja
Bier" song. Popular opinion forced
them to go through the entire reper-
toire. Salvation Nell's ditty crooned
by Mike Brennan, '36, was enthusi-
astically applauded.
Epidermis, the leading Commun-
ist, played by J. Gordon McDonald,
'35, caused his colleagues much em-
barrassment when he failed to appear
at his cue. The dishwashers had to
ad lib for almost two minutes while
their hero finished a cigarette in back
of the theatre.
The Communists "ad libbed" be-
cause of necessity, but- Bid Cutting,
'35, volunteered cracks for the joy of
it. Some of these were so well re-
ceived that they will remain in the
Opera. Milt Peterson, director, says
the show changes every night, thanks
to the ingenuity of the cast.

The Michigan chapter of the Gam-

graduate students in science, for a
number of years has had the custom
of having well known members of the1
University address the fraternity at

unique one in many respects, has
