Band To Be Announced Soon
Forced to break a tradition of com-
peting with the engineers for the at-
tendance of the campus' most beau-
tiful women the same night at their
respective dances, the lawyers will
present their annual Crease Ball
from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday, May 1,
in the main lounge of the Lawye'rs'
Tickets for the ball, the date of
which has been moved up by the
central committee to accommodate
a change in exams, (the result of
the war speed-up schedule) will go
on sale tomorrow. They may be pur-
chased by Law School students only.
Committee Is Listed
Co-chairmen for the dance, which
is the largest social event of the
year as far as the lawyers are con-
cerned, are Marion L. Bradbury, '42L,
and Dean G. Beier, '42L. Raymond
J. Fraser, '42L, will be in charge of
selling tickets for the dance.
Handling the publicity angle to get
each and every lawyer to come to
the ball will be the job of Seymour



Annual Wynx
Dance To Be
Sphynx And Wyvern Members
To Sponsor Affair At Union;
Air Raid Shelter'To Be Theme
The "No. 2 affair of the junior
class"-the "most inexpensive big
dance"-"another J-Hop on a smaller,
scale --Wynx, annual dance co-
sponsored by Wyvern and Sphinx,
junior women's and men's honor
societies, will be held from 9 p.m. to
midnight tomorrow in the Union
Elaborate door prizes from some
of the best local shops and other
door prizes of things both dead and
alive plus super-special decorations
will be offered all for the price of a
regular Union weekend dance.'
'Meet The Juniors'
Everyone who missed J-Hop and-
the chance to observe the juniors with
their hair down, is urged to come on
out and meet the juniors, the BM
and BWOC's of the campus..
Incidentally, for your own infor-
mation and protection, fellas, if a
girl winks at you on campus-that's
your signal to take her to the Wynx
dance. And since it is possible that.
you may get winked at by the wrong
girl, you'd better get your date and
ticket early.
Tickets Are On Sale'
For those who haven't already been
accosted by an eager salesguy or gal,
there will be a few scattered persons
in the center of the Diagonal today.
Tickets may also be obtained from
any member of Wyvern oi-Sphinx or
at the main desks of the League and

.>us "loose lips" revoals that Ann Arbor
will be the objective of an enemy air-
raid tomorrow night. Quite conven-
iently, the Union Ballroom will be
turned into a completely equipped
air-raid shelter-capacity unlimited.
So it is your duty, in view of the
situation presented, to buy Defense
Savings Stamps and bring your date
to Union safety, Friday night.

Last year the lawyers threw thei
party on April 4 at the League, where
they proudly displayed the famed
slide rule which had been stolen
from its decorative position at Slide
Rule Ball, held by the engineers the
same night in the Union.
The '41 Crease Ball had Everett
Hoagland and his orchestra to play
for danding, while decorations con-
sisted of 12-foot high legal tomes
piled at either end of the ballroom
with a caricature of Crease Court.
What with plans for air raid drills
fairly well under control the dorms

faculty entertaining this week. To-

ner. Afterward Jordan, Stockwell

Hats to fit hairdos are favorites this season. They are tiny, fussy and
flattering to add those needed touches of gaiety to the otherwise rather
tailored costumes of this spring.
These three are especially flattering. The first, a peasant bonnet, is
good for a hairdo with bangs, as it has severe lines. It covers most of the
hairline, and ties under the chin with a narrow bow. The colorful flowers
on the next hat give it a springy effect. It sets back on the head, and is
good for almost every hair style. Ostrich feathers are the latest thing in
hat fashions, so that the fluffy tips on the third hat strike a new note
for spring,
Top off a new spring suit with a gay hat, such as one of these, and
you will be a delight to the male eye.

That old cry of "no more silk'
stockings" is still being sounded, only
louder than ever. In response wo-
men are turning to serviceable, but
attractive, slacks. The male faction
of campus need no longer cry in,
protest, for these female trousers are
perfectly tailored and as flattering as
a chiffon formal.
By serviceable isn't meant conserv-
ative, for this season slacks are not
quiet! Glen plaids, stripes and
hound's-tooth checks lead the par-
ade. In Glen plaids combinations
of red and gray or red and blue can
be found. These styles are particu-
larly attractive when combined with
a corresponding jacket, jerkin, or
shirt in plain colors.
Gabardine Suits New
For the coming warm summer
months, gabardine will increase in
popularity. Many complete suits may
be purchased in this fabric. These
combine either shirts or jackets with
the slacks. The jackets, instead of
following the usual sport suit style,
are cut full in the bodice with either
a button or tie fastening it at the
waist. White or colored blouses are
worn under these.
A new style note has gained force
this season in the all-in-one slack
suit. One style is sleeveless, cut in

a deep V, and worn over a shirt. An-
other style is complete in itself with
a shirtwaist top. These have been
designed in answer to the demands
of the many women who have en-
tered defense courses or industries.
Tailoring Is Perfect
As will be agreed upon by men
and women alike, the tailoring in the
trouser is the most important feat-
ure. Many slacks may now be found
with pleats, high waists, and long,
full trousers. In short, they are
tailored exactly like those in the,
smartest of men's shops. This simi-
larity is carried as far as conform-
ing to the new law of no cuffs; which
makes trimness the characteristic
feature of these new styles.
A hint from the government has
been to buy clothes which will last
for the duration. This rule should
apply to sport clothes as well as any-
thing else. Consequently, wool, flan-
nel, or a good grade of gabardine will
be your best bet for the slacks you
will want to give a great deal of
service in the coming years.
