Bowing to tradition, Michigan's
seniors will hold their last under-
graduate fling, the Senior Ball, on
the night before their graduation,

Because no definite theme has as
yet been selected, the dance commit-
tee, headed by Hubert Weidman, '41,
is sponsoring a contest with a free
ticket to the annual affair as the
prize for the best theme idea.
Last year's Ball was held in the
Intramural Building with Glenn
Miller and his orchestra furnishing
the music.
Assisting Weidman on the central
committee are William Elmer, '41,
chairman of the publicity commit-
tee, who will be assisted by Robert
Buritz, '41E; decorations chairman
Paul Rogers, '41A, and Helen Bohn-
sack, '41; and patrons chairman Lee
Keller, '41, and Catherine McDer-
mott, '41SM.
Others on the committee include
George Nadler, '41, programs; Wil-
liam Volmer, '41E, building; Fred
Dannenfelser, '41E, music; Herb Bro-
gan, '41Ed, tickets; James Lau,
'41F&C, secretarial and finance, and
Dorothy Carter, '41SN, project.

ever," Eddy continued, "if liberalism
is defined as belief in the value of
human personality, then he was cer-
tainly a liberal."
Eddy also pointed out that Baroja
never allowed personal prejudices
