n Union

Roert Baldwin
Is Announced
To Head Affair
Nine Members Of Central
Committee Also Chosen;
Allen Is Ticket Chairman
The eighth annual Slide Rule
Dance will be held from 9 p.m. to 1
fa.m. Friday, April 2, at the Union, it
was announced late yesterday by
Robert H. Baldwin, '37E, who has
been named as general chairman of
the affair.
Nine ofther members of the central
committee were also announced at
the same time. Gustav T. Collatz,
'37E., will head the floor committee
and Willis M. Hawkins, '37E, and
Max C. Shoetz, '39E, will be co-chair-
men of decorations.
Orchestra To Be Announced
George Allen, '37E, will be in
charge of tickets and David B. Lans-
dale, '38E, was named program
chairman. Cedric E. Marsh, '37E,
and Miller Sherwood, '37E, make up
the invitation committee.
Hillard $utin, '37, is chairman of
the orchestra, committee and pub-
licity will be in charge of Sidney 0.
Steinborn, '38E, it was announced.
The orchestra for the dance and
the date the ticket sale will begin
will be announced later in the
week, Baldwin said. Art Kassel and
his N.B.C. orchestra played for the
dancelast year.
In accordance with the old Mich-
igan tradition, Slide Rule, which is
sponsored by the Engineering College,
will be held on the same night as the
Crease Ball, the annual formal dance
of the Lawyers. The tradition dates
back to the time when there was a,
great deal of - rivalry between the
members of the two schools.
Slide Rule Is Feature
Plans for the decorations and the
program for the' dance will be an-
nounced at a later date, Baldwin
said. Last year, a large slide rule,
which was hung in the center of the
ballroom, served as the main theme
of the decorations.. This-slide rule is
part of the tradition of the dance and
is kept locked in a display case as a
result of the time when it was stolen
by the 'lawyers during the days of
the rivalry between the two groups.
The program last year consisted
of white leather in the shape of a
bookmark and had a large slide rule
printed on the back.

Teas Started In 1930 ber of the social committee at the
Kou-Kous didn't put in his appear- League in charge of the Ruthven
ance during the earlier part of the I teas and after the guests had gone
afternoon much to the great disap-
pointment of Jane Pitcher, '37, Mary
Jane Crowley, '38, Ruth Coler, '40,
land Betty Brooks, '40, and they '
vowed that they would come to the1
next tea and make the acquaintance
of this illustrious character.
After the cat and dog situation had
been discussed at some length, Presi- ;
dent Ruthven turned to the interest-
ing subject regarding the history of
these well-attended teas. It appears
that Dr. Ruthven came into office in
the month of November, in 1929, and
he decided that in some way he
would like to meet the large student
body and have them make his and
Mrs. Ruthven's acquaintance. Con-
cewtently, in the fall term of 1930,
Dr. and Mrs. Ruthven opened their
home to the students and, much to
their satisfaction, the students turned
out in large numbers and appeared
as eager to meet their President
as he was to meet them.
Mrs. Clark Pours
Just at this point in the discus-
sion, Mrs. Charles E. Clark, house-
chaperon at Alpha Phi, Margaret
Cram, '39, and Stephanie Parfet, '39,
came up to talk a moment with Dr.
and Mrs. Ruthven. Mrs. Clark was
wearing a black and white printed
silk afternoon dress with a plain
