Date Advanced
Ordinarily held in spring, the Ball'
has been set ahead this year, because
many of the advance corps men are
graduating seniors. As it is possible
that some basic students may leave
at the end of this semester, also, the
dance will provide a last get-together
and a last chance to relax before
exams for many of the members of
the two military reserve forces.

All those potential Sonja Henies
who can cut any figure from one to
eight on ice have the chance to de-
velop and display their talents by
joining the Figure Skating Club.
Headed by Nancy Upson, '44, thej
organization meets twice a week at
the Coliseum; half the members on.
Tuesday and the rest on Wednesday.
Nancy, who can write her name
quicker on ice than she can on paper,
will give general instructions to the
group at first and then she will con-
centrate on instructing the members
Practice for Carnival
The group's activities this season
will be mainly devoted to practicing
for the ice carnival to be given in
conjunction with the Ann Arbor
Skating Club in the spring. The event
will offer opportunities for perform-

ing in chorus routines and for ap-
pearing in duet or quartet numbers.
At the present time, the club has
an ample membership, but the addi-
tion of a few more women will en-
title the group to become a member
in full standing of the U.S.F.S.A.
'Translated, this means the United
States Figure Skating Association,
the national amateur organization.
Own Figure Skates
The only prerequisite for belong-
ing to the club here on campus is to
own a pair of figure skates, charac-
terized by the wide, rocker-type
blades. The ordinary tubular blades
are not designed for fancy skating
because they are too narrow.
Those who are interested in join-
ing, but cannot meet on either Tues-
day or Wednesday should contact
Nancy and make arrangements ac-
