Slide Rule Ball Will Be Held March


Union Ballroom

Technic Staffs
Sponsor Dance
Engineers Do Not Anticipate
Retaliated Action by Lawyers
Slide Rule Ball, the annual .engi-
neers' fling, will be held from 9:00.
p.m. to 12 midnight Friday, March 12
at the Union, in keeping with the
Technic staff's traditional plans of
having one big engine school dance a
year, William Hutcherson, '43E, and
Keith Smith. 43E, co-chairmen of
the event, have announced.
In past years the announcement,
of the Slide Rule Ball has been the
incent4ve needed by the lawyers to
bring into the open the deep-seated'
rivalry between the engineers' Slide
Rule Ball and the lawyers' Crease
Ball, but the engineers are not an-
ticipating a repetition of such action'
this year.
Decorations for the dance will in-
clude the famed Slide Rule, always
a target for much attention by law-
yers and other interested bodies. It
will again be displayed prominently,
in the ballroom, and precautions for
"protecting" it will be executed.
The band has not as yet been se-
lected, but it is expected that it will
come from among the nation's top
names. In the past Vincent Lopez,
Cab Calloway, Woody Hlerman .and
Bunny Berigan' have played, and the
band for this year will be of the same
The central committee for Slide
Rule Ball consists of William Hutch-
erson, '43E, past editor of the Tech-
nic, and Keith Smith, '43E, former
managing editor of the Technic, co-
chairmen; C. Freeman Alexander,
'43E, finance; Pete Wingate, '43E,
music; Ken Moehl, '43E, and George
Sloane, '44E, decorations.

Council Open,
To Freshmen
Petitioning To Start Monday
For Judiciary Council Jobs
Petitioning for four new positions
as aides to Judiciary Council will be
open to second semester freshmen at
5 p.m. Monday through Wednesday,
Lorraine Judson, '43, president, an-
nounced yesterday.
The new committee of fourwill
provide a place on the Leauge Council
for freshman women for the first
time in the history of the League,.and
winners of the position will be an-
nounced at the Installation Banquet
to be held in the near future.
The committee was created not only
to take care of such routine work as
recording latenesses, doing contact
work and contributing to the more
efficient running of the Judiciary,
but to give undergraduates an early
chance to see what it is like to work
in the League other than on their
class projects.
According to Ann MacMillan, '44,
junior member on the Judiciary
Council, "We're giving the freshmen
experience for bigger and better
things to come on the League Coun-
Petitions may be obtained in the
Undergraduate Office of the League.
Interviewing will take place from 3:30
p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 25,
in the Judiciary Office of the League.
The Judiciary Council is a coed or-
ganization created to enforce regula-
tions controlling University women. It
also carries on the petitioning and in-
terviewing for all League positions.
War Marriages
Are Discussed
By College Dean
By The Associated Press
"Marriage can no longer be regard-
ed as a purely personal matter,"
warns Mrs.Alexander Thomson, pres-
ident of Western College, Oxford,
Ohio, in advising the younger genera-
tion on the problem of marriage.
The mother of four grown sns,
Mrs. Thomson declared that "Mar-
riage is one of the most normal, nat-
ural and desirable experiences that
anyone, man or woman can achieve."
She said however that many war mar-
riages were hasty and that such
unions would end in instability which
would effect the whole nation. "At
the very core of the national stability
we are fighting for," she said, "is the
stability of the home."
Mrs. Thomson advised young wom-
en to think no longer of marriage as
a ineal ticket but to realize that in the
post-war economy both partners will
have to work. Women must prepare
themselves before marriage to be able
to help support the hom. In the
event of a war marriage she must be
able to support herself and possibly
As a criterion for circumstances
favoring a marriage in wartime, Mrs.
Thomson offered the following: "A
successful marriage demands that
man and woman have unusual knowl-
edge of each other, not only of them-
selves as they are but of their possi
bilities and capabilities so they can
come back with the same understand-
ing from which war duties may now
separate them.
"There are many questions and
important questions, but in spite of
them and the serious implications
they may hold, let me again reiterate
my faith in the institution of mar-
riage and the future of the home."
There will be no bowling tomorrow,

February 22, at the Woman's Athletic
Building because of the holiday.
You have to make allowances for
boys in college, says a professor.
