Taboos Tails,
Tux And Ties
Special Program Will Feature
'Lumberjack Four' And Skits;
Bill Sawyer's Band Will Play
There'll be no sprucing up for the
annual Paul Bunyan "Formal," spon-
sored by the Forestry Club, which
will be held from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Fri-
day, Nov. 28, in the Union ballroom.-
Bill Sawyer and his orchestra will
provide the rhythms for the only
"formal" informal of the year, which
gets its idea from the fact that Paul
Bunyan, the famed lumberjack,
would frown on anything more for-
mal than old, comfortable attire.
Ewing Is Chairman,
Chester Ewing, '42, chairman of
the dance, has announced that "tux,
tails, and ties are taboo, for the pu-
pose of the dance is to just have fun,
without worrying about the propriety
of the clothing worn."
Assisting the general chairman will
be Jerry Schneider, '42, and Sam Bel-
lanca, '42, co-chairmen of decora-
tions, who have hinted only that
Paul Bunyan will be on hand himself
to see that things go right. Also on
the committee are Bill Hauser, '42,
tickets, Carl Meyer, '43, programs,
Frank Kent, '42, music, Alex Yorman,
'42, house, and Jim Snodgrass, '43,
publicity chairman.
r Program Planned
Tickets may be obtained at the
desks in the League and Union lob-
bies as well as from any forestry
school student. To advertise the
dance, every student in the school
will wear his field clothes all of next
week.
Meyer assures a ,lively program
during dance intermissions which
will include songs by the "Lumber-
jack Four," and skits by members of
the club depicting comical scenes in
the life of Paul Bunyan.
Anyone wearing ties or coats will
be cordially asked to either remove
same or roughen them up a bit.
Ewing stressed again that the more
comfortable the clothes worn the
more fun the dance will be. Infor-
mality at a "formal" will be the
vogue for the Paul Bunyan dance.
J-Hop Dates
Announced
'The College Dance Of Year'
Will Be Held Feb. 13 And 14
(Continued from Page 1)
and tails won't have to wait so long
for their dates if Publicity Chairman
Bob Burstein's plans go through-he
merely wants more mirrors installed
in the women's lounge. A quicker
and simpler checking system will be
introduced.
The between-semester dance is al-
ways the high spot of the Michigan
social season with every fraternity
house on campus holding house par-
ties where the men go out and the
women move in. There will be no
driving ban during J-Hop weekend.
Approximately 1,200 tickets will be
printed, not counting those given to
the patrons.cThe tentative price is
$7 plus tax.
The other chairmen assisting Sharp
are Bob Begle, tickets; Bruce Re-
naud and Jim Snodgrass, booths;
Rosemary Mann and Leanor Gross-
man, patrons; Tom Poyser, building;
Mary Louise Knapp, secretary;
Elaine Barth, programs; Mildred
Ciista, decorations;- Bob Bartlow,
music, and Bob Burstein, publicity.
The first meeting of the 4 p.m. to

6 p.m. section of Home Nursing will
be held in Barbour Gymnasium
Wednesday, Nov. 26.

Kaw-Qoosh-Kaw-Ncks-That Was
Ann Arbor In Days Of Redskins

By DOROTHY BLICKE
Kaw-goosh-kaw-nick-sounds fas-
cinating, if meaningless, doesn't it?
However, there's no mysterq concern-
ing these four unintelligible syllables,;
they're merely what the white man's
brother used to call Ann Arbor. If
you want to take the thing one step
farther, you could say Kaw-goosh-
kaw-nick was located in the center of
Wishte-Nong county. Of course, you'll
guess right away that Wishte-Nong
is the Chippewa word signifying
"further county!" Of coursey!
Named After Arbor
The noble red men really meant
what they said, for when John Allen
and Elisha Rumsey came to this ex-
traordinary bit of terrain in 1817,
searching for a town-site, it was liter-
ally the last jumping-off place. After
thinking long and futilely, the two
men decided to name their town after
the arbor in which their two wives,
both obligingly named "Ann," were
I accustomed to meet. It's really rather
obvious in a subtle sort of way, isn't
it?
Life in Ann Arbor at that time
wasn't too dull even though they "un-
fortunately" didn't get the University
until around 1836. They had a local
beer tavern of sorts in which "a cele-
bration was. always in progress," a
choice store or two whose stock was
likely to consist of "half a barrel of
whiskey, with a nail on the side hold-
ing a tin cup, three open-top thim-
bles, five darning needles, and a hank
of linen thread."
Clubs Are Formed
1-However, it wasn't only the com-
mercial side which flourished. Both
the men and women had special
clubs. The town bachelors used to
meet, more or less regularly, to dis-
cuss pertinent questions such as "Is
the married state more conducive to
happiness than the single one?" .I
The women under twenty-six (we
suppose after they passed this ripe
old age they were hopelessly on the
shelf) also met to generally improve

themselves by discussing topics of eat an sleep, members o f cacia
