Debate Series

'drty Line
By the Neighbor


Will Lead broadcast


Final Tryouts
Will Be Given


Once upon a time, this quiet little town of Ann Arbor really let down its
hair and had itself a time-and, unless you were entertaining Enza (of the
"Flu" family) at the time, you've probably guessed that last weekend was it.
No foolin'! Even the lawyers relaxed--if wearing a stiff shirt and tails can be
called relaxing. And the dentists were doing their bit, too. Activities ran the
gamut of fraternity radio dances to interfraternity track-meet, which got
an early lead Friday afternoon.
Bystanding Is Strenuous Business.. .
Tad Lynch was at the meet, accompanied by the fair-Bob Golden. And,
in case you're still interested, Mr. Lynch acted as chaperon. After a fatiguing
afternoon spent as bystanders at the same event, those two
cherubs, Grete Holst and Charles Evans went out for that
amw --= "pause that refreshes." Quite effective we hear.


Friday night, the fair damsels paid off their nobleI

knights at the League, and when we looked in, everyone was
having a wonderful time. We saw Jane Elspass there with
Dave Laing, Alberta Wood with Bill Spicer, while Jean
Bertram sat out a dance with Bob Emmett. Over in a very
far corner, Dwight Adams was leading Mary Jordan around,
and trying not to bump into "Punk" Martin and Doug
Hayes. Berta Leete had brought Jerry Martin, and Marjorie

Tickets for the annual Capitalist
Ball, to be given by the School of
Business Administration from 9 p.m.
to 1 a.m. Friday, March 17, are now
on sale at the main desks of the
League and Union and at Wahr's
bookstore, Gilbert Phares, '40BAd.,
publicity chairman, announced yes-
"The committee considers itself
fortunate," Phares stated, "to have
obtained Frank Dailey's orchestra,
featuring Barbara Bush as vocalist,
for the students at a price of only
$2 a ticket." He also stressed the fact
that the Capitalist Ball is an all-
campus dance, and not limited to
business administration students.
Band Broadcasts Nightly
Barbara Bush, the featured vocal-
ist with Dailey's band, started sing-
ing with his band a year ago at the
Meadowbrook Supper Club. She then
left the Meadowbrook for an engage-
ment at the Rainbow Room in Radio
City, New York. She re-joined Dailey
to come west with him and is now
singing at the Pavilion Capriceof the
Netherland Plaza where Dailey's band
broadcasts nightly. The singer is 22
years old.
Lloyds Is Investigating
An unusual feature of the dance is
the fact that the central committee
has contacted Lloyds of London in
order to insure it against financial
loss, due to the low price of the
tickets. Lloyds has accepted the pro-
position, pending further investiga-

To Start Today
Women Needed To Assist,
Will Be Admitted Free
Contrary to the announcement
made in The Daily last week, there
were no dancing classes Tuesday or
Wednesday nights, on account of the

en. I
The first dancing classes will be

day and tomorrow in the League.
Grace Wilson, '39, in charge of the

Strand and Charles O'Brien also decorated the dance with their respective
presences. At the same fling, we saw Jenny Petersen and guest Bob Weeks
making merry; Marcia Connell and Russ Strickland were following suit.
What? Bridge Instead Of Dancing? ... +
Leaving the League, Saturday night, we walked, or rather slid, out

Washtenaw to the Theta Xi house where,
to the tune of the boys' famous collec-
tion of latest recordings. Leaning over a
table in the library, Ella Stowe and
Tommy Reed were watching a bridge
game which some anti-social souls must
have preferred to dancing. Jean Jorgan,
Bob Smith, Susie Morgan and Ken
Johnson had retired to a corner with
an enormous pile of records to select
the next bunch they wanted to have
played, while Bill Wood and Elsie Jen-

an informal dance was in progressI



sen were standing on the outside trying to get a voice in on the selections.
The Theta Chis had received a blanket bid, so of course they showed
up en masse, with Wes Warren and Marg Carr leading the procession, rigb4;
on the hour. Jack Overton and Ann McCarthy came not long afterwards!
with Bob Garrison, now of Lansing, squiring Valda Spring. George Frid
came later on with Marybeth Jones. Sedately dancing--that was the
object of the affair you will remember-were Rollie McLaughlin and Liz
Luckner, although they had finished by ten. Pat Paxton was there too,
industriously learning a new step from John Fechnal, while her brother
John and Ginger (we didn't catch the last name) were watching with
assumed interest. We heard that Les Veigel bought a cabbage before the
affair. Is the man keeping rabbits, or is he just a vegetarian?
Informals Seem To Be Popular!.. .
You can't keep a good man down, and the Alpha Omega dents who
had enjoyed Delta Sigma Delta's stag Party of the preceding evening, en-
tertained their guests royally at their own informal pledge party Saturday
night. Al Sternfeld, Edith Musicker, Art Levy, and Myrt
Prussin were discussing, among otl.er things, the merits
.~ - , of Les Brown's band. It seems that Les's band has been
mentioned as a possibility for the annual dental ball.
Over at the Law Club formal, Judy Frank and Mort
Jacobs exchanged dances with Joan Werblin and Howard
Ark, while Lucille Flaum and Herb Galton were enjoy-
ing the dancing by themselves.
All's well that ends well, isn't it?
