To Go On Sale

"Winter Is A 'Com'

Virginia Morse Named Chairman Of Panhellenic Banquet



Band Chosen By Cdnrittee
Holds Record For Appearing
At Greatest Number Of Proms
"Slide Music" and its creator, Will
Osborne, will reign Nov. 14 at the
Union Ballroom when Interfraternity
Ball takes its traditional place on the
campus socialncalendar, co-charmen
Don Stevenson, '42, president of IF,
and Bob Porter, '42, secretary of the
organization, announced.
Tickets for the dance will 'go on
sale immediately in all fraternity
houses, with sophomores on Inter-
fraternity Council handling all sales.
Tickets Are Limited
Although attendance at the ball is
invariably heavy, ticket sales are re-
stricted and preference is given to
men belonging to Greek letter groups.
The ball is not only traditional as
an event, it is also, traditionally, the
first formal of the year featuring an
outstanding out - of - town "name"
Witl their selection of Will Os-
borne as the band of the evening,
committeemen have chosen an or-
ganization which has played for more
college proms than any other dance
orchestra in the country. His unique
style and slide rhythm trademark
have \been patented to protect their
Plans Not Completed
Plans for the dance are well under
way, Stevenson said, and tentative
decoration arrangements already have
been submitted.
The list of patrons and patronesses
along with completed decoration de-
signs and the guest list have not, as
yet been prepared by the committee,
but something entirely new in
"danceable surroundings" is promised
by committee heads.

Hall when one bright young man
took upon himself the privilege of
calling for his date at her very door.
He even had the thrill of riding
all'the way up to the fourth floor in
Mosher's exclusive elevator, and upon
arriving, nonchalantly asked if he
was on the right floor and which
way was 4, much to the speechless
amazement of the damsel who had
accompanied him thus far on the
Hearing the squeals of consterna-
tion emitted by half-dressed belles
en route to and from showers on
seeing the little man who shouldn't
be there, he realized his mistake and
whipped off down the steps as fast
as he could go-needless to say, with
the approval of all concerned.
He was just in time, lucky boy!
The assistant house director immedi-
ately searched every nook and cran-
ny for the misguided male. Hub-bub
continued for some minutes until she
was satisfied as to the non-presence
of any such creature on the floor.
Perhaps someone should write to
Emily Post and ask her to inform all
unknowing prospective daters of dor-
mitory girls on the proper decorum
