Nearly 300 couples will enjoy th
unique "cartoon" decorations, th
music of Jess Hawkins and his Vir
ginians, and the fantastic costume
of the dancers at the Architects' Bal
tonight in Granger's Ballroom.
Richard M. Robinson, '35A, gen
eral chairman, will lead the Ball, and
his guest will be Alma Miller, o
Manchester, Indiana. Other com
mittee chairmen include Don W
Lyon, music, George J. Bery and Fred
H. Graham, decolations, Carl B
Marr, tickets, Richard Pollman, floor

ert Taft, invitations.
Jess Hawkins' Virginians are regu-
larly featured at the Merry Garden
ballroom in Chicago, one of the "big
three" Chicago night clubs, including
the Trianon and the Aragon, and his
engagement here was made possible
through the special permission of the
Merry Gardens management. The
orchestra broadcasts over station WE
Decorations Include Tarzan
A last-minute innovation in the
general scheme of decorations for the
Ball is a huge picture of Tarzan,
holding up Mosher Jordan dormitory
by one arm. Co-eds may be seen
hangitig wildly from windows and
doors, trying to escape from tleir
"perilous" position.
The orchestra will play against a
background which represents a gigan-
tic pallette, with comic stripe charac-
ters clinging to the paint brushes
and peering out of paint bottles ar-
ranged in front of each player.
The few remaining tickets, priced
at $2, will be sold at the door of
Granger's, Marr announced. Cos-
tumes are 9ptional for those attend-
ing, but it is expected that approxi-
mately 60 per cent of the dancers
will wea costumes appropriate to
the "comic strip" theme of the Ball.

Coiffures Must Be
SVersatile To Wear
WithSpring Hats

4 The advent of spring to Ann Arbor
seems to have been marked by no
more definite signs than a few rain-
drenched robins tugging at worms
and a few optimistic co-eds trying oh
the season's newest hats. The perky
sailors, modified bonnet styles, the
ever popular pill boxes each call for
a distinct hairdress, as many of the
women trying on innumerable hats
have discovered.
You may wear bangs with your
most devastating date chapeaux, but
what will happen to these "beau-
catchers" when you dash for your
eight o'clock and jam on a low-slung
sport hat with lots of brim? Your
streamline, informally nonchalant
bob may serve you well on campus,
but it will probably look incongruous
with a shell pink, drop-shoulder for-
Curls Are Indispensible
Theref ore, the ingenious young
wnman will experiment with her hair
to find the cut and curl that will ad-
just itself most easily to several dif-
ferent coiiffures. Most certainly,
curls are almost indispensable. There
are curls on the forehead, curls at the
nape of the neck, curls piled high at
the top of the crown. It is generally
I a good plan to have the curls soft
and full rather than tight. The small,
stiff curl can be carried off success-
fully only by the very sophisticated
"smoothie." Girls not classified as I
such should follow the fashionable
trend of the season, the trend to-
ward feminine simplicity.
The modified Hepburn bob adapts
itself well to campus or evening
clothes. For class, the hair, which is
cut fairly short all around, may be
worn in a careless, fly-away fashion,
well brushed up in back and brushed
off the sides of the face. In the eve-
ning, you may curl the bangs into
soft, fluffy curls, while the rest of
the coiffure follows this same pat-
Waves to Suit Hat Styles .
An entirely original hairdress
which gives an effect similar to the
braid, is the coiffure having an un-
broken line of curl across the top
front of the head. This forms a tiara-
like effect and is particularly good
for the girl who wishes to appear tall.
Pill box hats and shallow sailors
call for hair styles that are flat on
top, with all the detail at the back
and sides. The hair should be ar-
ranged smoothly on the crown of the
head and then wave slightly before
the curls appear.
Those who cling to the long hair
tradition (notice that there are no
in-between length bobs) may wear
the coronet braid or the coronet twist,
the twist being similar to the braid
except that the hair is made into
two long curls and then drawn about
the head instead of plaited.
Ornaments for the evening coiffure
are popular and very effective if the
wearer uses them tastefully. A gar-
denia behind the ear, a line of small
flowers worn just above the roll in
back, or a tiny, colorful-clip will often
complete and accent a becoming coif-
Albert Zbinden, '37SM, pianist, will
give a piano recital at 8:15 p.m. Fri-
day, May 10 in the School of Music
auditorium instead of a graduation
recital as previously announced.

W. A. A. Lantern
Night First Started
As Dance Festival
Lantern Night, the ceremony hon-
oring senior women which will be
held Wednesday, May 22, at Palmer
Field, is a tradition that has received
enthusiastic support since its inau-
The ceremony developed from the
annual spring Dance FestiVal, the
name being changed to Lantern Night
in 1915. That year it was held on the
boulevard, now the hockey field, be-
fore Observatory Lodge. Besides the
procession, each class formerly pre-
sented a stunt. The bleachers raised
for the occasion were filled despite
a charge of 35 cents for reserved seats
and 25 cents for the othes.
League Takes Interest
Because of the success of Lantern
Night, the League became interested
in it and wished to cooperate with
W.A.A. in its promotion. However, it
was decided to accept the League's
assistance but to keep Lantern Night
a function of the W.A.A. The League
cooperated that very year, 1919, by
serving coffee to all those present
at the picnic supper preceding the
The affair was of such importance
in 1921 the Grand Rapids Junior
College and Detroit Junior College
were invited to attend. The guests
proved an inspiration, and although
no special invitations have since been
sent, out-of-town guests are wel-
Proceeds Given To League
W.A.A. reciprocated in 1922 by
helping the League. The W.A.A.
board voted to apply the proceeds
from a nominal admission charge to
the League treasury.
The first Field Day was held dur-
ing the afternoon just preceding the
picnic supper in 1924 at which time
the finals of the spring sports were
played. This event was discontinued
until last year when it was re-inau-
gurated into the day's activities.
Instead of the completion of the
spring sport's program, Field Day
has become a contest between the
houses. The six women from each
house who have distinguished them-
selves in athletics during the year are
invited to participate and are enter-
tained by W.A.A. at dinner after-
Following supper, the line of march
led by Barbara Sutherland, '35, and
the eight women from each class with
the highest number of merit points is
formed. The block M made at the
further end of Palmer Field is so ar-
ranged that the seniors with their
lanterns are on the outside, illuminat-
ing the letter.
Mosher Hall Residents

its meeting last night in the League.I

on the various phases of the subject.

ers, Grad., Helen McKee, Grad., and

Annual Senior
Dinner I Held
By Dormitory
A special Senior dinner was held
at Helen Newberry Residence last
night when the Juniors entertained
the Seniors. The tables in the din-

dent, presided, and introduced the
speakers. Each Junior addressed a
different Senior, and the Seniors re-
plied. The "oil can" that is present-
ed by the Juniors each year to a

tion, ivy was planted in the yard

student received a boutonniere of
