and the few literary college students
who managed to get their tickets in
the short time they were available at
the Union desk.

being devoted to pictures of engineers
in industry and the other depicting
the work engineers are doing in the

The theme will be introduced and
coordinated by a huge replica of a
magazine cover to be placed at one
end of the ballroom, its cover divided
diagonally to show both phases of the
engineer's work.

Lawyers' Club
To Hold Annual
Formal Today

To be sung by a quintet combining
"muscles and melody" the song which
Al Wistert claims as his brain-child
will at last make its debut at the
Wolverine Hop, presented by Gordon
Hardy and his band in the League
Ballroom from 9 p.m. to midnight
"Doodle-ee-doo," which is the dis-
tinctive name of the ballad, will be
rendered by a chorus of deep, melo-
dious voices and will be directed by
that master choir director, All-Amer-
ican Robert Westfall.
There will be a cheering section
composed of Bob Ingalls, '42, Paul
White, '44, Herm Fishman, Grad.,
and last but certainly not least, Jack
Grady, '63PS, and his nephew who
has kindly consented to attend. The
cheering section is solely for the pur-
pose of resuscitating any members of
the chorus who may become over-
wrought in the pursuance of their
All Athletes Are Invited

weekend dance, a special invitation
is issued this time to all athletes on

leagues sing the Wistert ballad, and

Club Appoints
Head Of Dance
Rafaelita' Hilario, Grad., vice-
president of International Center's
Interclub Board, has been appointed
chairman of the International Ball,
to be held April 18, in the Union Ball-
room, Robert Klinger announced yes-
James A. O. Crowe, '43, is the tick-
et and finance chairman, and Mrs.
Ruth L. Wendt, language adviser, will
take care of the dating bureau. Mem-
bers of the publicity and poster com-
mittee are Violet Oulbegian, '43SM,
Linda Reisman, '44, and Dr. Judith
Jimenez. Other members of the In-
terclub Board and a few outsiders
who have been asked to help are act-
ing in various other capacities.
Because of some misunderstanding
among students as to who could at-
tend the dance, Klinger stated, "We
are impressing on the campus that
this is an all-campus dance and no-
body with the price of a ticket will
be turned away, especially since this
is the only means of support for the
foreign student emergency fund."
Tickets went on sale Thursday at
the International Tea and may be
obtained now at the League, Union,
International Center or from any
member of the Interclub Board. The
proceeds will go directly into the
emergency fund which has already
received contributions from Ann
Arbor business firms and private per-

I partly to dance to Hardy's eleven-
piece band.
Bob Kolesar, '43, Tippy Lockard,
'43, Tom Kuzma, '44, George Cei-
thaml, '43, and "Whitey" Fraumann,
Grad., will make up the quintet of
"lettermen" who will sing "Doodle-
ee-doo," and talent scouts will at-
I tend the dance also to mingle quiet-
ly among the crowd so that they
won't give the chorus stage fright.
JGP Song To Be Sung
Hardy, who plays every Friday and
Saturday night in the League, has
also let it be known that Irene Men-
delsohn, '43, will sing the new song,
"Why," written by Al Waterstone for
this year's JGP, and Joan Reutter,
'43, "Miss Michigan of Song" and
regular vocalist for the band, will
sing a very new arrangement of "In
My Solitude" done by Chuck Well-
ington. Another new arrangement
will be presented, namely, "Some-
body Else Is Taking My Place," done
by Bill Rhodes.
Senior Caps, Gowns

caps and gowns will be sold from
12:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday in

and JGP will be on sale for 75 cents.
In addition, senior class dues may

will be set up in the League Ballroom
for that purpose; the dues which
will be $1, are for the class's reun-
ions and membership in the alumni
association, mainly. They must be
paid before announcements may be
purchased, and it is for the conveni-
ence of the senior women that this
table is to be set up Monday.
