Ghostly
Fearful Dance
To Be Given
By Congress
Grim Strains Of Bill Sawyer's
Mournful Music Will Be Heard
Over Station WJR At Midnight
The grim and ghostly gathering of
the gloomy tribe of galloping ghouls
will be held from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.
today in the ballroom of the Union,
under the auspices of Congress, and
for the general consternation and
discomfort of the ghastly guests.
Bill Sawyer and his orchestra will
play for "Coffin Capers", an informal,
open affair, and WJR, frightened by
the fearful face of Rigor Mortis, has
consented to broadcast the sorrowful
strains of Sawyer's mournful music
from midnight until 12:30,
Opera Preview Arranged
Chan Pinney, '41E, star of the
Union Opera - that organization
which so rudely ejected Mortis from
its rehearsal -will sing a preview of
two of the opera songs, "Your Page
In My Memories Is Blue" and "A
Dream And I Went Walking".
A dance team, resurrected from the
country churchyard, has undergone
a process of thorough reconditioning,
and will be in fit enough condition to
perform several waltzes and rhumbas.
The decorative plan for the dance
will incorporate such objets d'art as
gravestones, pearly gates and skele-
tons. The coffin, originally intended
to be placed in the center of the
room, will be omitted because of a
state law which insists that no one
who is not thoroughly dead may be
placed in a coffin.
Mother-In-Law Refused
Mortis wished to thank the gentle-
man who offered the services of his
mother-in-law to fill the coffin, but
regrets that he. will be unable to
use her, since the woman is not yet
dead and the process of reducing her
to such a state - although it might
be . enjoyable - will, nevertheless,
break another law.
Although Congress, the Indepen-
dent Men's Association, is sponsoring
the dance, it will be open to anyone
who wishes to attend. Tickets will
be on sale at the travel desk of the
Union, until just before the time of
the dance. They are priced at $1.25
a couple. Future corpses will pay the
same price as the now deceased.

man. Lightweight blouse fabrics fa-
cilitate holiday packing.
