Bunny Beriga's
Band Will Play
For Engineers
Decorations At Annual Dance
Sponsored By Technic Staff
To Be Engineering In Defense'
Engineers and the few "lit" stu-
dents who were lucky enough to get
tickets will step off to four hours of
dancing pleasure at 9 p.m. Loday in
the Union Ballroom when .the 1942
version of the annual Slide Rull Ball
slips from the future into the pres-
ent, and finally into the past. ,
Bunny Berigan, his trumpet and
his orchestra, will supply the music,
and more than 375 couples will sup-
ply the air of gaiety, for Ball tickets
have been sold out completely for al-
most two weeks.
Burr French Is Chairman
Chairman of the Ball this year will
be Burr J. French, '42E, editor-in-
chief of The Michigan Technic, who
will have as his date Virginia Lee
Sigsbee, of West Branch. The dance
is annually sponsored by the staff of
The Technic.
Decorations this year will be cen-
tered around an "Engineering in De-
fense" theme, paying tribute to the
work of the engineer both in indus-
try and in the armed forces.
Defense To Be Theme l
A huge replica of a magazine cover
will stand at one end of the ball-
room, its cover divided diagonally to
portray both aspects of the engi-
neers' defense contributions. Panels
on the Ballroom walls will recognize
the industrial phase on one side and
the service phase on the other, dec-
orations chairman Robert C. Keetch,
'42E, has announced.

Hardy, who has been cooperating
with JGP for the last tedious weeks
of production by wirting songs and
helping with rehearsals, will put the
final touch on his cooperation by al-
lowing the JGP audience to enter at
half price.
"Miss Michigan of Song," otherwise
known as Joan Reutter, is the regu-
larly featured vocalist with the or-
chestra. Hardy will play several of
his own arrangements of JGP tunes
and the chorus, if physically able,
will probably' also be featured.
