Assembly, in sponsoring these in-
formal dances at the League, hopes
to alleviate the problem of lack of
dancing space, particularly noticeable
this year because of the absence of
the regular Friday and Saturday
dances which were held last year at
the League.
Throughout the year, bands from
out of town will be brought in, and,
Patricia -Walpole, '41, president of
Assembly added, "We will make an
effort to insure good music by the
choice of orchestras."

Fraternity men will swing out at

vill be decorated in autumn colors,
with chrysanthemums rangingfrom
yellow to rust in color and bright
leaves used to carry out the color
scheme. They will also be used to
fill two large vases on either side of

Flowers Frame Entry
The entry to the ballroom will be
framed in flowers, and in keeping
with the autumn theme there will be
a roaring fire in the fireplace at the
end of the room throughout the eve-
ning, Reed Cranmer, '42, publicity
chairman, said yesterday.
Dick Shelton, one of the youngest
successful band leaders in the coun-
try, began his rise to prominence
during the summer of 1939 when his
was the first "unknown" orchestra
to be featured on the coast-to-coast
broadcast of the Band Wagon Pro-
Since that broadcast his music
has been featured on many radio
broadcasts and at an eight-week ap-
pearance in Chicago's Black Hawk
Restaurant last summer. Feature of

"The new figure skating class is
one more link in the correlation of
the great demand for more winter
sports in Ann Arbor with the program
sponsored by the Physical Education
Department," said Dr. Margaret E.
Bell, as she explained that the whole
student body is welcomed to the club's
organization meeting to be held at
3 p.m. today in Barbour gymnasium.
The Ann Arbor Skating Club, head-
ed by Mrs. Joseph Hayden, has pled-
ged its wholehearted support to the
enterprise; it is anxious that the class,
when formed, will provide the oppor-
tunity for students to participate in
this skilled amusement.
"Figure skating is dancing on ice,"
said Nancy Upson, Ann Arbor figure
skating championship holder who is
exuberant about her new position as
instructress to the club. A summer
at Lake Placid, studying under Jo
Carroll 'United States Dancing Mas-
ter of the Ice,' and Gustave Lussi,
who originated many of the standard
figures used today, has made her
all the more enthusiastic about her
love of skating.
For those who plan to attend the

organization meeting, Dr. Bell stresses
the fact that the choice of skates
should be deferred until instruction
in the matter has been given. The
fit of the boot, the type of skate, is
one of the most important factors in
skating proficiency. Under the su-
pervision of Miss Betty King, the class
will meet twice a week at dates to
be set at the organization meeting.
