Will Present ilitary Ball Today In Union


Hardy Features
Spring Theme
Dance Today
League 'Informal' To Highlight
'St. James Infirmary' Kolesar
In Original 'Hep' Arrangements
Supporters of the really special
"jump and jive" will miss out in lots
of ways if they miss the "Spring In-
formal" which Gordon Hardy and
lis hand will present from 9 p.m. tol
midnight today in the League Ball-
"St. James' Infirmary" Kolesar,
popularly known as Robert C. Kole-
sar, '43, is going to be one of the
main fuatures of the evening and his
own original "hep" songs are said
to be worth hearing. He was a more
or less incidental feature of the "Wol-
verine Hop" a few weeks back, when
he aided in presenting Al Wistert's
ballad, "Doodle-ee-doo."
That night he sang a few songs
on his own hook and has been known
as the "hi-dee-ho" king of the Mich-
igan campus ever since. This time he
won't have the support of the wholei
team behind him, but being a guard
on the team himself, he does pretty
well in his own right. .
To give the dancers a chance for
relaxation after Kolesar's renditions,
Joan Reutter and "Doc" Sprachlin,
regular vocalists with the orchestra,
will take over. According to Hardy,
there will be several new arrange-
ments presented during the evening
Comfortable dancing is the pass-
word in the League, so those attenl-
ing may come as informally as a
"Spring Informal" will permit. Tick-
ets may be obtained at the League
desk or at the door before the dan:e.

Annual AffairTo Present Music
Of Gray Gordon And Orchestra
Although decorations and entertainment may still be faintly suggestive
of the unpleasantness of war, the gaiety of dancing couples will prevail for
the most part from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. today when ROTC students present
their annual Military Ball in the Union Ballroom.
Leading this one-night retreat from reality will be the music of Gray
Gordon and his orchestra, acclaimed "the band of the year" because of the
demand for his music on juke boxes all over the country.
Combined en a full dance program to be rendered by the band will be
novelty, instrumental and vocal specialty numbers. vocalists Barbara Mof-

Wolverine To Turn Proceeds
Into 'Bomber-Scholarships'
Bomber-Scholarship Project has
found another ardent backer in the
Wolverine Cooperative. The members
of the Wolverine are donating the
use of their building gratis and mem-
bers are giving their services free
for a dance from 9 p.m. to midnight
tomorrow so that all the proceeds can
go to the fund.
Several Ann Arbor merchants, re-
ported Murray Gottleib, '42, one of
the Wolverine members in charge of
the dance, have contributed funds to
supplement those contributed by the

fett and Ted Travers doing the
Decorations will contrast slightly
with this aunosphere of gaiety, as
sand-bagged machine gun emplace-
ments located at strategic points
about the main ballroom will set off
the brightness of the flags and bunt-
ing elsewhere in the room.
In keeping with this theme, the
small ballroom will be decorated as
an air raid shelter, although no raid
is anticipated during the Ball.
Ballroom decorations will be com-
pleted with a special sentry box at
the door, from which tickets will be
taken, but it has also been an-
nounced that a special feature of the
decorations will be constructed in
the hall outside of the Ballroom to
add still more realism to the setting.
The drill team, which has proven.
so popular in past years, will be on
hand again for this year's dance, but
again the circumstances have been
altered, and attending couples are
warned to expect some real surprises
during intermission.
Sharing honors at the Ball today
will be Cadet Colonel Verne C. Ken-
nedy. '42E, and his date, Marcia
Sharpe, '45A, and Ball Chairman
Lindley M. Dean. LitSpec, and Mrs.
Sponsored by the ROTC cadets,
the Ball is nevertheless open to the
campus at large, and the olive drab
of the Army will be supplemented
not only with the blue of the Navy
but with the contrast of tux and
tails as well.
Ball committee members are Dean,
John Scheibe, '42M, Walter Strick-
land, '42E, Dean Thomas, '42, Fran-
cis Anderson, '43M, Robert Snow,
'42E, Phil Levy, '43, Robert Ehrlich,

fer, '42E, and Charles Thatcher, '43E.

Attends Federation Convention
The varied and strange accents rolling off the tongues of women from
Maine to California were amazing to tall, slim Nancy Filstrup, '43, newly
elected president of the WAA, who recently attended the convention of the
Athletic Federation of College Women at Wellesley College with Miss Marie
Hartwig, national secretary-treasurer.
This association is made up of WAA's or similar organizations from
schools all over the country, and it regulates all activities among them. It is
due to the Federation that inter- '
collegiate competition is excluded,
and instead sports for the sake of
recreation and fun are encouraged.
Since the beginning, the association's
motto has always been "Cooperation
instead of Competition."

According to Miss Filstrup, dele-
gates all came to this convention
with the same question in mind,
"what part can women of my school
play in national defense?" Of course,
this turned out to be the theme of
the conference. Out of people from
all over the United States who at-
tended this convention, the Univer-
sity of Michigan's WAA president
Miss Filstrup, was selected as chair-
man of the Committee on Defense,
the most importadt committee of a
group of 12.
Drawn up by this committee was
the following resolution on defense:
that AFCW, realizing the responsi-
bility of each college student, partici-
pate to its utmost in the war effort
by taking increased initiative and
leadership in the physical fitness
program; that they work through
the individual to the campus and
ultimately the community; that they
utilize their special .training to con-
tribute to the health and morale of
the nation.
A Victory Platform for the AFCW,
including eight statements, was
drawn up also. Some of the most
important statements of the platform
were these:
1. Coordinate and cooperate with

moting war work.
2. Stimulate interest in the de-
fense program by such devices as
mass meetings, original publicity,
slogans, radio programs, movies
and exhibits, fitness "campaigns"
and "days."
3. Promote individual awareness
of the importance of health, in-
cluding rest, nutrition, exercise and
correction of physical defects.
4. Redirect WAA activities in ac-
