Union Staff To Display Talents
At Dance Saturday Night

Soph Cabaret
Will Feature

Decorations, Pranks
TO Add to Merriment
Sadly frustrated members of the'
Union Staff and Council will release
all their inhibitions from 9 p.m. to
midnight EWT Saturday in the ball-
room of the Union at the Hellzapop-
pin dance, guaranteed to rouse the
most world-weary student from his
The event will differ from all other
Michigan dances in that it will have
decorations. Not only will there be
decorations, but there will be special
lighting, all in a tasteful color scheme
of red, yellow, and black. As though
all this were not enough to mark it
as the Dance of the Year, a spokes-
man for the Union revealed with be-
coming diffidence that liquid re-
freshments will be dispensed from a
still from which one of the members
is nobly parting for the evening.
Lots of Entertainment!
Never will those attending this
function have to fall back upon dan-
cing or each other's conversation as
a means of entertainment. Perish the
thought! Those Union boys will be
all over the place, riding bicycles,
dancing with anything they can take
away from her partner, shaving on
the bandstand, and generally trying
to spread sweetness and light.
In the interests of scientific re-
search, some serious-minded lads
will set off flash bulbs in the dark
room. "We want to see," another
Union spokesman said, "if anyone
ever dpes dance in there."
Skits at Intermission
Intermission time will be enlivened
by a skit entitled "The Low Pressure
Salesman". displaying the dramatic
talents of George Spaulding, Bill
Conant, Ken Holcomb, Dick Cheno-
weth, Sanford Perlis, and Bob Gran-
Other members of the Union have
kindly volunteered to aid Bill Layton
and his little troupe of promising
young musicians in their earnest ef-
'USO, Requests
Servicemen May Comment
On Current Plan, New Ideas
Calling all servicemen! The USO
Club would like to have your sug-
gestions for activities which will make
the Club more like a "home away
from home" for you, and a suggest-
ion box has been set up in Harris
Hall. for comments on the present
program and ideas for the future.
While most men are acquainted
with the dancing held every Wed-
nesday, Friday and Saturday and the
Sunday morning breakfasts, many do
not know about the monthly birth-
day parties, classical music library
and free lending library services of-
fered by the USO Club. Less famil-
iar also are the package wrapping,
housing assistance and pressing facil-
ities to be found in the Club.
Recreational activities available to
servicemen include ping pong, bad-
minton, shuffle board, horseshoes and
table games of chess, checkers and
cards. Voice recording equipment is
on hand at the USO, and records can
be made Thursdays and Saturdays.
Future plans include picnics,
swimming parties, dancing lessons,
crayon drawings of individual ser-
vicemen to be made by a local artist
and a bicycle borrowing system. The
USO has obtained the services of an
able director, and if a sufficient num-
per of men are interested, will or-
ganize a Play Production Group. Men
interested in such a group should
sign up in the assistant director's of-
fice before June 1.



forts to produce music. "The Union
staff is willing to sacrifice the entire
evening, which would ordinarily be
spent studying, in its efforts to amuse
the student body," still another Un-
ion spokesman said.
Prominent radio comedians Jolly
Joe Gentile & Ralph Binge have been
invited to attend the dance, yet an-
other Union representative revealed.

necks to sit around in The Daily giv-
ing out interviews.)
