Setting To Be Southern.
The central committee has decided
on a southern colonial mansion as
the appropriate setting for the com-
ing-out party for the freshman class,
and decorations have been planned to
transform the Union Ballroom for
the night with the aid of a profusion
of flowers and ivy.
At the entrance to the ballroom will
be a latticed archway, while the
bandstand will be disguised with
large white columns to resemble the
portico of a large mansion, and spe-
cial lighting arrangements have been
worked out to create the illusion of
a starry night.

With the campus more or less di-
vided against itself socially today,a'
good half of the academic population'
will be supporting Alpha Tau Ome-
ga's formal "Blackfoot Ball" to beI
held from 9 p.m. to midnight in the]
League Ballroom.
Gordon Hardy and his new 11
piece band will officiate from the
bandstand. Featured vocalist will be
Joan Reutter, '43, Miss Michigan-of-
Approximately 32a couples have
received bids to this invitational af-j
fair. Special guests for the evening.
will be members of Alpha Tau Omega
chapters at Michigan State College,I
Albion, Hillsdale and Adrian. Mem-
bers of the local chiapter will begin
festivities with a formal dinner atI
the chapter house.
While "Blackfoot Ball" is an an-
nual affair on nearly every campus
where an ATO chapter exists, it was
revived here last year for the first
time since the World War I. Ac-
cording to tradition, the dance will I
honor the fraternity's pledges as well
as being a part of the Founder's Day
program which occurs this week-end.
Decorations will center about a
beautiful Maltese cross at the far!
end of the ballroom. About half wayt
through the evening the cross will be
illuminated by a spotlight as the
band strikes up the strains of Alpha
Tau Omega's Sweetheart Song and
the members join in.
The name "Blackfoot" was first at-
tributed to the Alpha Tau Omegas
in 1865 at the founding of the initial
chapter at Virginia Military Institute
-for apparently no good reason ex-
cept that tradition of 1800 aptly sup-
ported nicknames for Greek letter or-
ganizations. The name stuck and,
since then has been used in all of the
fraternity's projects.
Pledges to be honored today will
be Robert Myers, Howard Wikel,
Richard Wellman, Leigh Smith, '45,
Phillip Whelan, '45, Phillip Marcel-
lus, '44, Robert Leeder, '45, William
Esslinger, '45, John Corbett, '45,
Richard Burk, '44, and Edward An-
thony, '44.
Chaperons for the affair will be
Mr. and Mrs. Leslie Wikel, Dr. and
Mrs. A. W. Coxon and Prof. W. J.
Emmons. In charge of plans for the

the anual Slide Rule Ball, to be
held Friday, March 27, in the Union
Ballroom, will still be able to get
their tickets from 1 to 4 p.m. today in
the lobby of the East Engineering
Even so, Ball Chairman Burr J.
French, '42E, revealed late yesterday
that the first day's sales had dis-
posed of over two-thirds of the tick-
ets available, and procrastinators are
advised to get their tickets soon after
they go on sale today lest they come
too late.
All ticket purchasers must present
an engineering identification card,
French pointed out. If tickets are
still obtainable, they will later be
made available to non-engineering
students as well as engineers.

Card Games Eliminate 'Fourth'

Two brand new card games, Belotte
and Telefunken, and an old-timer,
Gin Rummy, are coming straight
from the hearts of Hollywood and
New York to card addicts who can't
find the proverbial "fourth" for a
rubber of Culbertson or Auction.
The old French element has intro-
duced Belotte, for two, three or four
players, guaranteed to brighten up
the smoke-filled atmosphere and in-
troduce a spark of interest into the
old controversy among the royal
families of Club, Diamond, Heart and
The South Americans are pushing

funken, which any number up to six
can play with two decks of cards,
deuces wild and ten chips to a player;

The RAP has revived our own old
standby, Gin Rummy, and with aL
few new quirks or two, it's covering
ground like wildfire.
So, next time you don:t feel like
succumbing to the prolonged torture
of the bridge table, and there are ei-
ther too few or too many "fourths"
in the crowd, be daring and suggest
a newer and more exciting game.
Perhaps you'll be the one that puts
Michigan on the bandwagon with
New York and Hollywood.
Officers Are Named
Theta Xi announces the election of
second semester officers. Frank C.
Taylor, '43E, was chosen as president;
Richard Eyster, '43, as vice-president
and Ray Gauthier, '42E, and David
Wehmeyer, '44E, were made treasurer
and secretary respectively.

Bulletless Quncs
To Be Shown
Today By ROTC
A rgechanism which shoots light
instead of bullets will be featured
tonight when the ROTC holds a spe-
cial invitational match and exhibi-
tion at the rifle range. The novel
device which is to be demonstrated
works by means of a photo-electric
cell arrangement, familiar to civil-
ians in the form of "electric eyes."
Because the size and weight of the
new guns are exactly the same as
ordinary ones, the equipment might
prove to be extremely important in
giving target practice without using
ammunition, an innovation that
would be profitable with the present
extreme need for defense.
Before the demonstration is held,
a shoulder to shoulder match will be
held between members of ROTC and
-the women's rifle team. There will
be from five to eight members on
each team that will participate in
the contest.
Dance Will Be Held
A radio dance and sing will be given
from 10 p.m. to 12 p.m. tonight at
the Congress Cooperative House fol-
lowing a skating party at the Coli-
