Union Ballroom

Annual Dance
To Have Music
By Hoag land
Tickets To Continue On Sale
Today; 'Modernism' Will Be
General Theme Of Decorations
Everett Hoagland and his Orches-
tra will make their first appearance
in Ann Arbor at 9 p.m. today to fur-
nish the music for the annual winter
Engineering Ball which will be held
until 1 a.m. in the Union Ballroom.
One of the best known young
dance bands in the country, Hoag-
land's Orchestra has recently com-
pleted an engagement at the Wal-
dorf-Astoria Hotel in New York.
They have also played at the Ritz-
Carlton in Boston, the Rice Hotel in
Houston and the Cleveland Hotel in
that city, receiving favorable com-
ments during each of their appear-
In addition, the Band has played
in such popular theatres as the Earle
in Washington, the Stanley in Pitts-
burgh, the Fox in Detroit, and the
Earle in Philadelphia.
Hoagland himself has a musical
background wich critics believe is
rarely equalled among the modern
dance maestros. Since the age of
six he has studied, successively, the
piano, trumpet, saxophone, clarinet
and oboe which he topped off with
a study of arranging and composi-
tion at the Conservatory of Music at
the University of Southern Calif-
Tickets for the dance may be pur-
chased for the last time today either
at the Unionhdesk or from members
of the Engineering Council, which
is sponsoring the dance. They will
be sold for $2.50 per couple.
Decorations for the Ball will con-
form to the general theme of "Mod-
ernism" and will consist of models
of various structures used in engi-
neering. These include a ladle filled
with molten metal, a gear, a pulley
and belt, a girder and a cross-section
of an automobile engine.
The list of patrons of the dance
will be headed by President and Mrs.
Alexander G. Ruthven, Dean Joseph
A. Bursley, Dean and Mrs. Walter B.
Rea, and Dean and Mrs. Ivan C.
Proceeds from the sale of tickets
will be used to sponsor "Open House"
in the Engineering College sometime
in April to show the rest of the cam-
pus the various types of activities
and the research work which is being
carried on in the School.
Dances To Be Held
Tonight At Stockwell
And Pi Lambda Phi
The little date book has but two
lines filled today, as the Engineers
Ball has taken over the campus
limelight, the Sweater Dance will be
held in the League, and besides,
those dreadful things called finals
are just around the corner.
Members of Pi Lambda Phi are
having a radio dance from 9 p.m.
to 1 a.m. tonight. Those who have
been asked to chaperon the affair
are Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Bothman

League To Give
Dance Tonight
Bill Sawyer To Feature Vocal
Quartet, 'The Impossible Four'
Bill Sawyer's latest swing arrange-
ment, "Yes, My Darling Daughter,"
will be introduced at the Sweater
Dance tonight from 9:30 p.m. to 1
a.m. in the League Ballroom.
The new number which, in the
young maestro's opinion, is their best
arrangement to date, will feature
Gwen Cooper, soloist of the orches-
tra, singing the leading role support-
ed by their new vocal quartet, "The
Impossible Four." Big John and Bob
Holland will add to the vocalizing
with some of their own inimitable
styles for other specialty numbers
during the program.
A straight program of regular dance
music is to be the order of the eve-
ning and Sawyer declares that there
will be no interruptions of any kind
during the evening, even for an-
nouncements. ASCAP tunes will be
Dance tickets are priced at only
$1 per couple, so if you haven't al-
ready planned to go to the Engin-
eer's Ball we suggest that you dance
the sweater dance at the League.
Sport Jewelry
Qoes Domestic
In New Designs,
It seems that the jewelry designers
are forever thinking up new ideas
to please the feminine fancy and
now they have gone domestic.
One of the latest tricks is to die
the kernels of corn and string them
on a leather strap to make a smart
necklace. The kernels may be dyed
any color. One of the more attrac-
tive ones combined rose kernels with
aqua colored kernels.
These neck pieces are rather heavy
and so look best with sweaters or a
plain, not too dressy wool. Perhaps
one of the things which seem to be
most pleasing about this necklace is
the fact that it gives the appearance
of a Hawaiian lay, a most flattering
adornment to anyone.
Because the Sweater Dance is
being held from 9:30 p.m. to 1
a.m. tonight in the League ball-
room, the 7-11 Club will not be
open. On Saturday night, how-
ever, the club will be open as
usual from 9 p.m. to 12 p.m. in
the Grand Rapids room.
