Filipino Artist
Is In Charge
Of" Decoratiorls
Banners Of Eighteen Nations,
Center's Coot-Of-Arms Form
Theme For Ball, To Be Friday
Merrymakers who attend the In-
ternational Ball, to be held Friday
in the Union Ballroom, will be
greeted with a galaxy of welcomes in
eighteen languages, Eduardo Salgado,
Filipino artist Qnd designer of the
ball decorations, promises.
The- decoration theme is built
around the International Center
coat-of-arms and includes banners
of welcome froln Turkey, Lithuania,
Germany, France, Spain, Scotland,
Armenia, Russia, the Philippines,
Hawaii, Portugal, Arabia, Korea, the
Hindus, Italy and others.
Exhibits Work
Salgado is a special student in the
University's College of Architecture
and Design, and has exhibited his
work ina number of places. At pres-
ent he has a showing in San An-
tonio, Tex.
No floor show will be arranged,
thus allowing more time to dance to
the music provided by Bill Sawyer
and his orchestra. Semi-formality in
the form of dark business suits and
any type of long dress, will be the
rule in order that no one will be pre-
vented from attending.
Though foreign students are es-
pecially invited to the affair, Amer-
icans are also welcome, since this is
the only big dance on the campus
where they may meet and mingle for
an entire evening. It is, besides, a
good way to support the student
emergency fund into which dance
proceeds will go, and which, due to
the war, is rather depleted at present.
Date Bureau Open
The International Ball dating bu-
reau under Mrs. Ruth L. Wendt is
still open to women who are inter-'
ested in meeting people from other
Robert Klinger, president of the
Interclub Board which is sponsoring
the dance, finds that ticket sales have
been very satisfactory and that about
25 patrons have subscribed to the af-
fair, so far. Tickets are still available,
however, in the Union, League and
International Center.
The WAA Board will have a supper
meeting at 5:45 p.m. today at the
WAB; Attendance is compulsory.

series of Union Coke Bars by attend-

This is the last chance of the yearj
for students to enjoy these afternoonI
affairs, sponsored by the Union Ex-
ecutive Council for the purpose of
providing an opportunity to meet
"the other half of the campus" and
to dance away the afternoon.
Personal Escort Service
According to Bob Templin, '43,
general chairman, the practice of an-
nouncing occasional no-cut dances
will be continued to give a man a
chance to dance with a woman
"more than 10 seconds." A special
record has been prepared to an-
nounce the no-cut dances.
A staff of civilians (including the
more notable BMOCs) has been as-
sembled to accompany each woman
personally to the dance floor. This
new group will replace the Navy and
Army men who acted in that capacity
in the past.

beth Milne, '45, assisted by 75 other

Council, as their final get-together
of the year, enjoyed a steak dinner

Petites Pommes de Terre

Wyvern and Sphinx, junior honor societies on campus, being honor
societies as they are, were allowed to give a dance with the general atmos-
phere of the bomb shelter as a theme. The whole thing has the sound of
a nameless orgy, but it wasn't. It turned out to be just a dance with Bill
Sawyer up on the stand and maybe just a few less lights and decorations
than usual in the ballroom, and certainly with Buck Dawson working like
mad to be eccentric (word used, courtesy of Tom Thumb) all over the place.
Buck outdid himself in cleverness this issue. His was the mighty idea
of giving door prizes, "dead or alive." His, also, was the idea of making the
dance's theme that of a bomb shelter. But the piece de resistance of the af-
fair was the gag he pulled before the dance. His date, who lives at the
Kappa house, received, before the dance, two live chickens. We don't know
what the particular significance of the idea was, but Buck says it was very
funny, and if anything could prove it, that certainly should.
Among the couples present were Dotty Johnson and Ben Douglas,
Daphne Silhavy and Bob Morrow, Gloria Nishon and Bill Van Gieson,
Barbara White and Jim Wolfe, Barb DeFries and Will Sapp, Mot
Wright and John Fletcher, Rosemary Ryan and Hoe Seltzer,
and Phyl Present and Mel Comin.
flopwoods And The Cotntestants..
Yesterday was the final day for 1opwood manuscripts, and
we have no doubt but that other columnists will have a few
words to say about the final, horrible hours of typing stuff that seemed
pretty red-hot when you wrote it, but now sounded.-like a low-grade pulp
Most of the Hopwood circle have been taking either an English course
conducted by a man who assigns them poetry to memorize, and puts a large
emphasis on mysticism in literature, or a course in classic drama. The boys
aren't objecting a bit to the assignments in either of them. Rather, they're
going through an interesting sort of metamorphosis. Hitherto they all be-
longed to the modern, fearless school. Their writing had always been stark
and verbless and had dealt principally with corpses and the smell of cooking
cabbage. But these two courses have opened their eyes, it seems, to the
possibility that there is something else in life besides Joyce and the odor of
stale vegetables.
the classic drama course has the best story to offer. The professor was
speaking about some particular trend or treatment which could be noted in
the lines of Aristophanes or one of his cohorts, and when asked if it was a
significant note in the history of drama replied that, "Yes, it can be seen in
some of the writings of even our modern English playwrights. Now take
Shakespeare or Beaumont and Fletcher, for example-"
