Band Will Present Swing Program




to participate in the scholarship cam-
The Ann Arbor Surf Riding and
Mountain Climbing Society - more
commonly known as Psurfs - will
take over the platform of Hill Audi-
torium during intermission. Com-
posed mainly of lawyers, the Psurfs
will sing as many numbers as the
audience demands.
Idea for this unique male choir
was brought to the Michigan campus
from New Haven by Tom Tilley, '43L,
who belonged to a similar organiza-
tion at Yale. Although only or-
ganized last year, the group has been
in two Michigan Night programs in
Detroit and has been featured at
numerous class dances.
Barnet's rise to royalty in the realm
of jazz has been almost phenomenal.
Virtually unknown a few years ago,
he crashed the nation's juke boxes
with such favorites as "Pompton
Turnpike," "Cherokee" and "Between
18th and 19th on Chestnut Street."
Barnet will be the third of Ameri-
ca's top swing musicians to play in
Ann Arbor since Jan Savitt and Tom-
my Dorsey held sway over University
audiences in the Yost Field House.
This year the concert will be held in
Hill Auditorium for its convenience
and better acoustics.
Tickets for two and a half hours
with the "'King of Sax" and his "sax
appeal" are still on sale at the Union
desk, Burton Tower, Ann Arbor High
School, on the Diagonal, Wahr's
Book Store and may be obtained
from any member of Alpha Phi Ome-
ga. Tickets may also be purchased
between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. today at
the door.

To Be Featured
At ROTC Ball
ROTC members and their guests
will receive an impressionistic pic-
ture of the implements of war when
they attend the Military Ball, to be
held from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m., Fri-
day, April 24, in the Union Ball-
The first glimpse of the picture
will be when tickets are taken from.
a sentry box at the entrance to the
ballroom. From this beginning, the
view continues to grow until those
attending the dance have a complete
idea of the -meaning of an Army
camp. However, with the addition
of glowing formals the picture will
lose its true militaristic aspect.
To Have Bomb Shelter
The large ballroom will contain
machine gun emplacements stationed
behind walls of sandbags. If these
machine guns start misbehaving, the
small ballroom has been decorated
as a bomb shelter, where refuge may
be taken to escape the firing, or en-
gage in tripping the light fantastic.
Added to these decorations a spe-
cial feature isbeing planned for the
hallway, leading to the ballroom.
This is being prepared by the Society
of American Military Engineers.
Flags and bunting, well distributed,
will complete the patriotic picture.
Gordon Will Play
Gray Gordon and his orchestra
will come to Ann Arbor for the ball.
Gordon's "show" unit will combine
novelty, instrumental, and vocal spe-
cialties with Ted Travers and Bar-
bara Moffett leading the parade. His
former "tic toe rhythm" has recent-
ly been replaced by a new style which
he will feature at this dance.
Originally scheduled to close to-t
[nadquarters or from any member
of the committee by anyone on cam-
pus, not just members of the ROTC.

Softball games and the first round of golf are beginning to limber most
of us up, but the muscles sure do hurt at first. Even the Palmer Field ten-
nis courts are being well-spotted with energetic members of both sexes
these days. Sorry, no reports on the Arboretum!-but here's loads on WAA
Millions of things are going on-practically. Plans are being made for
the big event of the year, Lantern Night. Besides that May 2 has been set
as the day for both the Crop and Saddle Horse Show and a "Sportsday"
event to which nearby colleges have been invited.
* , * *
The big feature of this week, however, is the Dance Symposium, spon-
sored by the Dance Club Saturday at the University High School gym. Helen
Willcox, head of the club, and Miss Ruth Bloomer, advisor, are busy with all
sorts of plans. Several colleges around Michigan have been invited and,
also, local high schools, sn more than 95 people are expected to be present
for registration at 10:30 a.m.
All those attending will be given a Master lesson in the morning, and at
12 p.m. a luncheon will be served at the W.A.B. If A2 weather permits, it
will be an outdoor lunch around the fireplace at the field.
After food for the brain, each school will use its creative ability to de-
velop an impromptu composition. The afternoon will close with finished
programs presented by the various schools.
* * * *
It won't be easy to get a court down at Palmer Field for awhile, because
the tennis tourney is now oti its first leg. "Who plays who and when" is
pcsted down at the W.A.B., and the first round of women's singles must be
played off by April 29. The first round in both women's and mixed doubles
must be finished by next Monday. If you're not an expert, don't worry, be-
cause the members of the tennis club are being excluded from this tourna-
ment and have an individual club tourney. Sixty-five women are signed up
for the singles, so you "all" better get down there and beat each other toj
the courts.
Now's the time for all good women to improve their posture-and here's
how. Join the Archery Club, which mecets at 4:15 p.m. today at the W.A.B.
It's really a pleasure to see that arrow land in the bull's-eye, believe us, we
did It once. If the club can build up a team of eight girls, telegraphic meets
will be held between Michigan's group and schools all over the country, so
come out for some fun and watch the waistline go down.
Here's a note for crawlers. A big meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. to-
morrow at the Union pool, and any girl interested in joining the Swimming
club is urged to attend. Plans for next year will be discussed, and Oriel
Straehley, head of the club, has some swell ideas for a water ballet.
Pitch and Putt club members have switched from Wednesday to 4:15
p.m. Tuesday for their meeting at the W.A.B. from now on.
Practice for "Sportsday" is necessary at this time, so Fencing Club
will meet at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow at Barbour gym.

information has come to the effect
that spring is really on its way-in
fact it's here, and to emphasize the
point, Gordon Hardy and his band
are presenting a "Spring Informal"
from 9 p.m. to midnight -Friday, in.
the League Ballroom..
In addition to the usual mixture
of sweet and an occasional "jive"
number of Hardy's orchestra, it is
announced that Robert C. Kolesar,
'43, guard on our own football team,
will also be featured in a special
one-man floor show. If you hap-
pened to happen in on the "Wolver-
ine Hop" a few weeks back, you
might recall that Kolesar gave out

however, he had earned the title of
"the hi-dee-ho king of the Michigan
campus," and Friday night he'll pre-
sent several of his own original "hep
songs. He won't have the whole
team to support him this time, but
he really doesn't need it at all, at
least when he's singing.
When Bob isn't doing the singing,
Hardy's regular vocalists, Joan Reut-
ter, "Miss Michigan of Song," and
"Doc" Sprachlin, will take over very
ably. A couple of new arrangements
will also be spotlighted during the
This "Spring Informal" is true to
its name, and anything from sweat-
ers to plain old shirt sleeves will be
acceptable, if it'll add to the comfort
of the affair. Tickets may be pur-
chased at the League desk or at the
door before the dance.
