Invite Students
To Open-House
Dance To Be Held Tonight
In League Grill Room
The large crowd that attended the
League open-house last Wednesday
night has led the dance committee of
the League to sponsor another open-
house for dancing from 8:30 p.m. till
10:30 p.m. today in the Grill Room.
The affairs are being held in the in-
terim between last semester's danc-
ing classes and those of the new se-
mester, which will start Feb. 21.
Grace Wilson, '39, vice-president
of the League, is in charge of the
open house, and Elva Pascoe, Grad.,
will be present to give instruction to
any persons who wish it. Miss Pas-
coe has studied under dancing 'in-
structors at the Arthur Murray stu-
dios in Detroit, and has been giving
the instruction at the dancing
classes at the University.
Students may come either with or
without dates, and admission is free,
except< that they must furnish the
money to play the nickelodeon, which
will provide the music for dancing.
The money from the nickelodeon goes,
to the Undergraduate Fund of the1
League, as does the money from the
dancing classes held each semester.
Students desiring instruction are
urged not to feel hesitant about ask-
ing for help with steps, since there
were many people last Wednesday
who were beginners, and at the end
of the evening had improved greatly,
Miss Pascoe said.
Miss Wilson added that women are
urged to come today, inasmuch as"
there were many more men than
women last week.
