Annual Dance
Has Prevailing
Easter Spirit
Women To Receive Chocolate
Eggs; Ballroom Decorations
To Provide Spring Atmosphere
Everyone left in town over this
gay, festive week-end will not only
have something to do but plenty to
do by going to the Bunny Hop to be
held from 9 p.m. to midnight today
in the Union Ballroom.
This Hop is one of those very an-
nual affairs so popular with the
Union, but will be like a regular
week-end dance as far as ticket price
is concerned. The purpose of the
dance is to give those left behind a
taste of genuine Easter eggs, bun-
nies, grass, and Easter spirit in gen-
Easter Bunnies Decorate
Decorations will consist of four
large Easter bunnies silhouetted
against the main wall pillars of the
ballroom. Added effect will be ob-
tained through the use of blue, yel-
low, purple and white crepe paper
Climax of the evening (though
it'll probably take all evening for the
climax) will be chocolate eggs given
free of charge to each woman at-
tending. Each egg will have the in-
dividual's name written on in sucrose.
The eggs will be inscribed at a spe-
cial, decorated booth at the south
end of the ballroom.
Grass On Bandstand
Bill Sawyer and his "wabbits" will
furnish the music on a bandstand
covered with grass and four-leaf
clovers. Sawyer has promised a
super-special dolled-up arrangement
of the "Easter Parade"-quote Saw-
yer "I promise" unquote. Gwen Coo-
per will be attired in her best Easter
bonnet and Bunny Burt in his new
riding boots. Sawyer said that. at
this timethe will reveal his new style
of "sweet rhythm."
Needless to say, the advance sale
of tickets to the Hop has been unusu-
ally heavy-due to the free Easter
eggs, no doubt-and there is a lim-
ited number of tickets left.
The ten lucky men who won the
Easter-egg hunt early in the week
will be special guests of the Union
and will be illuminated by a brief
splash of the spotlight sometime dur-
ing the evening.
Cool Fabrics Soon
To Lead In Fashion
Since the Ides of March have come
and gone, it is time for coeds to con-
sider cool apparel for the University
fashion parade. Seersucker is an
important utility fabric for summer.
More sheer than formerly and quite
capable of being made into tailored
dresses, it saves ironing, leaving more
time and keeping you cool for that
vital war work.
Quaint, shiny chintz, soft rayons,
and bold plaid ginghams add to the
assortment. Linen, since it has be-
come wrinkle resistant through a
process called tebilizing, is another
worthy fabric. Sheer chiffons and
organdies lead for dress-up occasions.
Outing Club Will Meet
The Graduate Outing Club will
hike tomorrow if the weather per-
mits. A short trip down the river
with supper ,in the open, or in the
clubroom, will comprise the hike.

it may be seen that this is a very

With music by Shostakovitch and

today and any woman golfer on cam-

ticipating in this tournament must
play 18 holes of golf on the Univer-
sity Golf Course and must turn their

Members of the women's golf team
need not turn in new scores unless
they wish to improve the ones they
made last fall. Those turning in
the eight lowest scores will become
members of the women's golf team,
and will be privileged to play at the
University Golf Course free until the
tournament next fall.
So much emphasis has been placed
on physical fitness for defense that
golf should be kept in mind as an
easy way toward good health. "Wom-

Advance Sale
Of Military Ball
Tickets To End
The announcement that ROTC
checks would be paid Wednesday
spurred the Military Ball ticket sale
yesterday, as advanced corps cadets
hastened to sign up for tickets while
basics continued to eat into the sup-
ply made available to them.
Tickets now in the hands of Ball
committee members, originally given
out for advanced corps sale, will be
called in Monday, Lieut. L. W. Peter-
son of the military science depart-
ment announced, and any advanced
corps students who have not yet
arranged for a ticket are advised to
sign up for one before that time.
Ball tickets will be available today
at ROTC headquarters or from Lieu-
tenant Peterson, while they may be
obtained until 5 p.m. Monday from

Stepping up to the mike, Norton
created a forest fire, complete with
cracking branches and falling tim-

splintering a strawberry box in his

Then, while ringing door bells, tel-

Norton was interrupted by a tousled
