1, at the Union, will go on sale today
at R.O.T.C. headquarters, according
to Paul W. Philips, general chairman.
They will be priced at $3.00 each.
Only R.O.T.C. members will be al-

Announcement of the orchestra to
play at the ball has not yet been
made. However, various well-known
bands are under consideration. May 1
is a date which can be filled with a
good band since it is at the close of
the indoor season and before the
opening of the outdoor season for
many orchestras.
The ball this year will be disting-
uished by unusual favors and decora-
tions, according to Charles A. Fram-

tion committee. Framburg will be

Opening Of UniversityI
When Michigan became a state in
1837, the Constitution which then
became operative, Professor Davis
continued, provided the legislature
with the responsibility of providing
for a system of common schools and
maintaining a university. This third
great forward step in education in
Michigan, the speaker averred,
bTought about the opening of the
University in 1841.
Explaining that the school had
difficulty at first in obtaining stu-
dents satisfactorily trained, Profes-
sor Davis told how the legislature
"came to the rescue" by permitting
several small school districts to com-
bine and to provide a college prepara-
tory department. Once high schools
began to be formed, expansion took
place very rapidly, he added.
Professor Davis emphasized the in-
fluence upon education of Dr/ James
B. Angell, who became president of
the University in 1871. He shaped,
