Mid - Holiday
Dance Planned

Lt~,In Sc~~eI ~hi~1)/1935

For Dec.


Engage 'Melody Masters'
To Play For Informal
Party At League
Por those forlorn out-of-town stu-,

dents who must, for one reason or
another, languish in Ann Arbor over
the holidays without "getting in on"
the many private parties that charac-
terize the vacation period, the Mid-
Holiday Dance from 9 p.m. until 1
a.M. Friday, Dec. 27 in the League
Ballroom is expected to provide wel-
come entertainment.
In past years the dance, which
usually has gone under the sobriquet
of "The Holiday Hop," has been spon-
sored by Gilbert Bursley, '34, with un-
usual success. This year the Mid-
Holiday party is under the direction
of two junior engineering stdents, Or-
lando W. Stephenson, of Ann Arbor,
and Robert T. Cousins, of Northville.
Stephenson and Cousins plan to
limit the ticket sale to 285 in order
to insure adequate dancing space.
Tickets will be priced at $1.50. The
10-piece Vernors' "Melody Masters"
Orchestra, which has concluded a
successful engagement in Denver,
Col., and is now playing in Detroit,
will provide the music. During the
11 p.m. intermisison the League Grill
will be open to the dancers.
The outstanding novelty of the eve-
ning will be a grand march, with the
leading pair selected from among the
couples considered "most attractive"
or "most interesting," it was an-
nounced by Stephenson. Pictures of
the march will be taken.
Although the Mid-Holiday Dance is
scheduled as "informal," it is expect-
ed that there will be more than a few
in formal attire, since many dinner
parties are being planned by local
residents before the dance.
Patrons and patronesses for the
dance, as announced by Stephenson,
include Deqn Joseph A. Bursley and
Mrs. Bursley, Dean Alfred H. Lovell
and Mrs. Lovell, Prof. Walter E. Lay
and Mrs. Lay, Prof. Philip E. Bursley
and Mrs. Bursley, Col. Frederick C.
Rogers and Mrs. Rogers, Mr. and
Mrs. Walter B. Rea, Prof. Russell A.
Dodge and Mrs. Dodge, Prof. O. J.
Campbell and Mrs. Campbell, Prof. A.-
Franklin Shull and Mrs. Shull, Dean
James B. Edmonson and Mrs. Edmon-
son, and Prof. and Mrs. A. DI Moore.
Pledges, actives and alumni will
attend the Christmas party to be
given tonight by Acacia fraternity.
Gifts will be given to individuals as
well as to the University Hospital so-j
cial service. Among the alumni at-
tending will be Regent Junius Beal,
Mr. Robert Norris, Mr. Herbert G.
Wagner of the University accounting
department, Mayor Robert Campbell
and Dr. Charles Sink.

Now that vacation is practically up-
on us, and we are all packing up to
go somewhere, the question of good-
looking and adequate luggage is a
prominent one.
For the traveller who wants every
article of clothing in a separate suit-
case there is a set in rawhide consist-
ing of shoe and ha6 case, overnight
case, wardrobe case, taxi wardrobe'
and full sized wardrobe trunk. And
we might add to this list a bottle box
which has a deep compartment that
will hold bottles of almost any size,
and underneath this is a drawer for
Less extensive but equally smart is
a three piece set, wardrobe case, over-
night case, hat box, matched in im-
ported pigskin, and lined with cord
de rae in flame color.
If color is your main objective there
is a small make-up case in pin grain
leather that can be used to match
your costume or contrast with it. It
comes in blue, green, black, brown
and red and is guaranteed to carry
lotions and creams tops up. Room
also for nightie and slippers.
There is a new lightweight suitcase
called the Skyrobe, made of three ply
basswood and covered with a heavy
glazed linen, or, if you want to be
particularly sporty, you can have it
covered with tweed.
But probably the latest and most
novel disguise for a suitcase is a cov-
ering of firehose which is both dur-
able and good-looking.
And finally, for the inveterate mu-
sic hound, there is a new electric au-
tomatic phonograph combined with a
superhetrodyne radio built into a
portable cowhide case, not only smart,
but also unusually light weight.

Christmas party tonight inviting
alumnae, patronesses and faculty
members as guests. Dr. J. C. Salis,
Mrs. L. W. Oliphant, Mrs. A. C. Furst-

to be among the honored guests.

Sale of dance tickets alone brought;
in $260.00, an increase of $35 over
that of last year. Admission tickets
netted $227.
The proceeds of the cabaret will
be turned over to the Undergraduate
Fund which pays for many of the ac-
tivities carried on in the League, in-
cluding the buying of books for the
new library and the paying of the
salary of the librarian. The Stanley
Chorus was also incorporated into the
League this year for the first time, for
which the Undergraduate Fund must
buy new music and pay the accom-
panist. Office supplies, operation of
the Silver Grill, and Orientation week,
also come under the jurisdiction of
the fund.
Practically the only thing which
seemed to remain to disturb the
minds of the central committee was
the fact that some erstwhile sou-
venir seeker stole the large beaver
board sign which was placed outside
the League to advertise the cabaret.
The most amusing incident related
by the members of the committee was
in connection with the loss of the
costumes for the redcap chorus a half
hour before the floor show was sched-
uled to begin.
