Engineers To Give Annual BallI
Today in Union Rainbow Room

Dancers Will Hear
Louis Prima's Band
Braving the hex of Friday the
13th, the School of Engineering will
present its annual Slide Rule Ball
froni 8:30 p.m. to midnight EWT
(7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. CWT) today in
the*Rainbow Room of the Union.
Louis Prima and his dynamic
new band will furnish the music
for the dance. Lilly Ann Carol,
his star female vocalist, will sing,
and Charlie Kennedy will play his
"sweet sax".
Prima is well known to radio and
movie audiences all over the country,
having appeared on such popular
network shows as "Spotlight Bands"
and "Millior Dollar Band", and in
many movies, including "You Can't
Have Everything", "Rose of Wash-
ington Square", "Rhythm on the
Range", "Start Cheering", and
"Manhattan Merry-Go-Round".
Although it is given by the engi-
neers, the dance is an all-campus
affair open to members of any
school. In past years the law stu-
dents have made frantic and some-
times successful efforts to obtain
the giant slide rule prized by all
Michigan engineers, but this year
it has been hidden in the West
Engineering vault, and will be tak-.

en out and moved to the Union
under guard today.
John Peterson is chairman of the
dance. Other members of the com-
mittee are Philip Stemmer. vice-
chairman, Coe Best, business mana-
ger, Robert Boyce and Robert Bald,

lections gathered, they may call the
Office of Civilian Defense to ar-

Plays Have Been Cherished

Campus Traditions Since 1904

"Take It from There", this year's
JG Play, which will be given at 8:30
p.m. EWT (7:30 p.m. CWT) Thurs-
day, April 26 in the Lydia Mendels-
sohn Theater in the League, is a
continuation of one of the oldest and
most cherished campus traditions.
Since 1904 each class of juniors
has produced a play for the enter-
tainment of the graduating women.
First produced in Sarah Caswell
Angell Hall in Barbour Gymnas-
ium, JG Play later moved down-
town to tne Whitney Theater. At
that time all senior women attend-
ed a Senior Supper, and then,
decked out in caps and gowns,
marched in a lengthy parade from
Barbour to the theater for the
premiere of the play.
The custom of honoring seniors by
giving a play grew from an earlier
custom when juniors were formerly
obliged to serve at the Senior Sup-1
per. Many varied themes have been
used in the plays since they were first

presented. The 1905 play was called
"Every Senior" and was a morality
play "for the warning and moral
awakening of the senior girls."
In 1928 there were six perfor-
mances of "For the Love of Pete".
J G Play was even then regarded as
one of the outstanding events of
the year, and proceeds from that
year's production, as well as from
former JG Plays, were added to the
League building fund.
For several years the plays were
written by graduate students or al-
umni, even professional writers. The
1940 play was the work of Richard
McKelvey. director of the Children's
Theater at that time.
There were no JG Plays produced
during the first three years of the
war. Last spring, however, the jun-
iors revived the old tradition, and
"Jabberwacky" was presented to the
seniors. "Take It from There", this
year's play, is written, directed and
produced, as was the 1904 show, en-
tirely by junior women.
