Hoag land Band
Will Furnish
Dance Music
Theme Of Traditional Formal
Will Be 'Modernism'; Wheels,
Pistons To Decorate Ballroom
Everett Hoagland and his orches-
tra were chosen yesterday to furnish
the music for the annual winter En-
gineering Ball which will be held from
9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday, Jan. 17, in
the Union Ballroom.
Termed by many as one of the
smoothest sweet bands in the coun-
try, Hoagland's Orchestra has ap-
peared at several leading hotels dur-
ing the last few months including
the Waldorf Astoria, the Cleveland
Hotel and, most recently, the Statler
Hotel in Boston. Last month the
Hoagland orchestra appeared on the
Fitch Band Wagon.
The orchestra's style is very simi-
lar to that used by the late Orille
Knapp whose trumpet player, now
with Hoagland, sets the rhythm of
the group.
'Modernism' To Be Theme
Theme for the Engineering Ball
will be "Modernism" and plans have
been pade to decorate the Union
Ballroom in an appropriate manner
with various geometric designs sym-
bolizing the so-called "present ma-
chine age."
According to George Weesner, '41E,
and Robert Bishop, '41E, the decora-
tions will be similar to those seen
at various automotive and mechani-
cal exhibits at the New York World's
Fair. They are expected to consist
of such things as gears, pistons, and

Is it going to snow, or isn't it?
Well, the answer is that it probably
will, sporadic as the white flakes
may now be. so it's best to be pre-
Too many are the coeds who
screech and say they haven't a
thing to wear when some Michigan
man suggests a snow party or to-
boggaing in the Arboretum. They
are missing a good time-they'll
never realize how good a time one
can have until they try it-and as
things stand, will probably continue
to miss it.
Very smooth costumes can be either
bought or put together. .Lucky are
the girls who can get a complete cos-
tume. They should remember that
the newest thing in ski suits has a
god deal of braid on it, and they
should choose carefully when picking
the mittens and cap-either some-
thing dark so as not to interfer with
the braid, or if the suit is dark and
tailored, make the accessories bright.
But most of us just have the ski
pants, or intend to ask Santa Claus
for them so that we won't ever
again be caught unawares when the
outdoor calls. And from this we'll
concoct a snappy ensemble. To all
such people, this plea is made.
DON'T let the outfit LOOK put
There is nothing quite as snappy as
a girl in good looking snow clothes,
but when they're not snappy they're
thoroughly sloppy. So put lots of
thought into the color scheme. Ran-
sack not only your own wardrobe, but
that of your roommate or your best
friend for exactly the right articles.
Many depend on a heavy sweater
for initial warmth. A knitted ba-
bushka of the same wool or match-
ing socks would make the outfit a
unified whole. If you prefer a
kerchief, remember that it's much
more graceful to have it reach all
the way to the shoulders, not show-
ing a few inches which will soon be
scraggly with the help of damp
If it's an odd jacket that will be
used, be all the more careful that i&
deceives. The best way to make it
seem to have been there from the
beginning is to choose a direct con-
trast in either color or design.
If other things permit, throw a
very long scarf over one shoulder,
or be more original and wrap the
scarf around your head to guard
the curls, and let whatever length
is left float down your back.
Though many are those who don't
seem to realize it, feet are important
things where looks are concerned.
It's worth a few extra dollars to get
boots to tramp in the snow with.
Fleece lined rubber or suede ones can
be used for this as well as for campus
wear. Neat leather boots are nice,
of course, but not many can afford
them. Ski boots are not a necessity,
Boxes For Jewelry
Make Practical Gifts
If you're left in. a quandary about
what to give mother, best friend, sis-
ter, or room mate for Christmas, why
not settle on a both stunning and
practical jewelry box? The price
range and variety is tremendous.
Wooden or satin ones may be pur-
chased for a dollar, while silver, gold,
or jeweled ones range from 10 dol-
lars to several thousand.
Original and novel are the musical
jewelry boxes most of which are made
of delicate and old fashioned look-
ing china. Each time the lid is open-
ing, the box tinkles off a tune, which
sounds especially pretty when you're
putting on all your gold and glitter
to catch that certain man's eye.

but you'll probably like the sport so
much you'll want to get some.

That haven for coke daters, the
Coke Bar in the Terrace Room of
the Union has, and will hereafter,
the Daily to the contrary, adhere to
its usual time schedule-4:30 p.m. to
5:30 p.m. every Tuesday, not Thurs-
day as erroneously stated herein.
Catching the spirit and the at-
mosphere of the famous campus coke
date, tha Terrace Room will reopen
after the Christmas holidays with
its recently innovated Tuesday serv-
ices: free cokes and other refresh-
ments, dancing to recordings in the
small ballroom, and tables for cards
on the terrace.
Crowds of approximately 200 stu-
dents-have attended the Coke Bars
throughout the fall.

Protect your shoes! Keep ther from becoming
scuffed and scratched while in the closet. Don't just
put them anywhere but use one of our handy shoe bags.

and the best of the season's greetings
to our good friends in the college crowd!
May this vacation be a gloriously happy one.
And may your return to Ann Arbor town be
gladdened by the sight of old friends' faces,
that we fondly hope will include our own!
