The decorations, under the super-
vision of George Weesner, '41E, and
Robert Bishop, '41E, will be in keep-
ing with this idea consisting of vari-
ous geometric designs symbolizing
"the present mechanical age."
The style of decorations will be sim-

Dear Mother,
We just finished struggling through the first weekend since the end of
the football season ended, and although I studied all but two hours when
I went to a movie Sunday afternoon I have heard a lot about the silly things
people were doing in the guise of fun.
I was rather baffled about the whole thing, so I asked a fraternity boy
about it, and he admitted that the dances and hayrides and things like
that are really very dull. Then he grew confidential and said: "You know,
really, all these social events are held for just one purpose-we all want to
atain BMOC and BWOC status, and the best way to do that is to get our
names printed in the society column of The Daily." And do you know,
Mother, some people actually readrall that drivel that is printed about the
dances and things!
Fraternity Boy Makes Rounds *.*.
Anyhow, this fraternity boy was telling me how he had made the rounds,
of all the parties from Friday to Sunday. He said he went to a Vulcan-
Druid-Tau Beta Pi dance at the Delta Tau Delta house Friday night and
saw the following socialites there: Pete Brown and Jane
Pritchard, Jeff Hall and Peggy Gabriel, Ed King and
Bobby Curdes, Jack Harwood and Betty Ann Cattell and
Jim Winkler with Kay Dye.
Then he wandered over to the Soph Cabaret, where he
ran into Big Shots Bud Porter and Marjorie Risk, Howie
Wallach and Nathalie Lilienthal and Bob Wood withy
Janie Herrick. At the SAE house a little later he saw r
these eight of the Four Hundred of Ann Arbor: Joan
Clement with John Rust, Virginia Ward with Bob Burck-
halter, Betty Fariss with Carl Schlegel and Louisa Penny
with Fred McCracken.
I don't understand why he went there-it actually sounds as though it
might not be too boring-but the fraternity man admited tha he had been
to the Ballet Russe Friday night. I guess that the people he knew here-
Rosemary Lehman, Johnny Stamm, Paul Bonner and Harold Guetzgow-
had a tip that somebody from The Daily would be there.
lIe Was Respectale BMOC . . .
Saturday night, my friend said, he had a heck of a time getting around
-there was just too much doing for a poor, respectable BMOC. He went
to the Alpha Phi House first and had a chance to talk with Jeanne Kauf-
mann and Date Bob Bogle. He also saw Jeanne's little sister, Marge, with
Bob Edgerton, that smooth eastern boy, and Maya Gruz-
hit with Bill Elmer.
Then my chum wandered over to Stockwell Hall and
crashed the dance there. He didn't get very far there-
only people he saw before he was tossed out were Rita
Goldstein and Jerry Schneider and Bob Marx with Laura
Baird. Then as he passed the League he saw Bob Lovell and Mary Lyman
leaving after a lusciously boring time trying to win fame at Soph Cabaret.
They were very happy, because they had been seen by a girl on the women's
staff of The Daily. At that point, Mother, my acquaintance grew very sad
-he remembered that he had seen Dorothy Bogert out with some fellow he.
didn't know-so he couldn't snub him.
ociey Goes To Barn Dance,. ..
Well, my chum also stopped in at the Wolverine, where he noticed Pub-
licity Hounds Don Counihan, Betty Prindiville, Burns Huttlinger and June
McPherson. Then he dropped in on the Phi Sigma Delta barn dance and
talked a while with socially prominent Mim Rubin, Jack Spitalny, Bee
Swimmer and Orville Lefko.
Well, Mother darling, I have to study some more now to make up for
the time I spent in the movie Sunday afternoon. You'd better reread all
those names the fraternity man told me about. Most of them will get into
The Daily, he said, and then the people will be very Socially Prom.: nt and
Big Shots and True Successes In Every Field Of Eendeavor In Life.
Lovingly and studiously,

gin work in the League. All those

If you couldn't get to the mass meet-
ing last Tuesday to sign up for com-
mittees, come to the meeting today,

mittee will be a large committee, with
an important job to do-in fact it

Al Kavelin W
Al Kavelin and his "Cascading
Chords" orchestra will furnish the
music for Panhellenic Ball which will
be held from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday
in the League Ballroom replacing
Mitchell Ayres, who will be unable
to keep his engagement for the
dance, Grace Miller, '42, chairman
of the music committee, announced.
Kavelin, writer of "I Give You My
Word", graduated from the Royal
Verdi Conservatory in Milan, Italy
and attracted much attention in this
country with his violin. After the
completion of his first concert sea-
son he organized his own dance or-
chestra, preferring the tempo of mod-
Rrn dance music, and achieved im-
mediate success.
With his appreciation of the clas-
sical music and sheer artistry, Kave-
lin is able to blend the classical into
the popular music. Realizing that
the public changes its moods daily
he intersperses tangos, boleros, cari-
ocas and rhumbas with the latest
"swing" arrangements.
In the past three years Kavelin and
his orchestra have filled engagements
at the Blackstone Hotel, Chicago;
