Annual Affair
To Have Hardy
And Orchestra
Ball Will Be Invitational Dance
Including Out-Of-Town Guests;
Will Honor Chapter's Initiates
Going exclusive on the rest of the
campus, members of Alpha Tau
Omega fraternity are busy putting
finishing touches on their "Black-
foot Ball" to be held from 9 p.m. to
midnight, Friday, March 13, in the
League Ballroom.
While the "Blackfoot Ball" is an
annual affair on nearly every campus
where an Alpha Tau Omega chapter
exists, it was only revived here last
year, for the first time since World
War I, but will be continued in the
future as a traditional affair.
Is Invitational Affair
The Ball will be an entirely invita-
tional dance with bids going to ap-
proximately 325 couples. Among the
special guests will be the members
of Alpha Tau Omega chapter at
Michigan State College, Albion, Hills-
dale and Adrian, in addition to the
members of the University chapter.
The name "Blackfoot" was given
to the men of the fraternity when
the chapter was first founded at Vir-
ginia Military Institute in 1865 and
since then has been used in many of
the fraternity's projects.
Gordon Hardy To Play
This year's "Blackfoot Ball" will
honor the men to be initiated Satur-
day and will also be a part of the pro-
gram planned for the celebration of
Founder's Day which occurs on the
same weekend.
Gordon Hardy and his new 10
piece band have been engaged to play
for the blackfooters. Co-chairmen
of the dance are Hugh Ayers and
John Eley, with Keith Muller and
Charles Trick assisting.
Chapter Celebrates
Twenty-Fifth Year
At Banquet Today
Eta chapter of Phi Sigma Delta
will hold a banquet at their house
at 12:30 p.m. today following the
fraternity's formal initiation. Cele-
brating the twenty-fifth anniversary
of the local chapter, many alumni as
well as charter members are plan-
ning to be present.
Garry Chertoff, '44E, Master Fra-
ter, will welcome the new initiates,
while Lewis Froikin, '44E, president
of the pledge class, will respond in
behalf of the new members.
Cuff-links that will brighten the
most classic shirt-waist or the most
feminine blouse are those which are
wrought from metal to look like old
buttons. Other trinkets that are news
in the fashion world are tiny felt
flowers patterned in gay cyclamen
to adorn your ear-lobes.
Tickets will be on sale at the
Union desk for the annual Frosh
Frolic, which will be held March
13, beginning at noon Tuesday.
They will continue to be sold to
freshmen only until noon Satur-
day, at which time the remaining
tickets, if any, will go on general
sale. Red Norvo and his orches-
tra will play at the freshmen's
official coming out party.

In planning your dark room for
a blackout, be sure to stock up
on some of the new blackout
light bulbs at Calkins-Fletcher.
They give a very narrow beam
of light which cannot be seen
through draped windows-and,
as an added feature, when not
in use in the blackout room,
they can be used in a dark
room while developing pic-
tures. - 25c a piece.
