It was tradition at Michigan,
prior to 1933, for Cap Night to be
held. This was a time when senior
women donned caps and gowns
and were serenaded by under-
graduates wearing traditional hair
bows. Yellow designated juniors,
sophomores wore red bows and
freshmen were spotted by their
gren ribbons.
At this time, white dresses and
heels were also worn by the under-
'lasswomen and the line of march
was led by the Varsity Band which
later presented a concert.
Wren 1935 rolled around, a Play-
day had been inaugurated which was
attended by representatives from
each league house, dormitory and
sorority. These women participated
in round robin events which included
tennis, bridge, archery, lhorseshoes
baseball and obstacle races. Follow-
ing the event, a buffet dinner was
held in the field house to honor the
winners, who later attended Lantern
At previous Lantern Nights, Jap-
anese lanterns were carried by the
seniors, while juniors carried col-
cred hoops. At the conclusion of I
the ceemonies, the lanterns werei
passed to the juniors by the seniors
and the juniors, in turn, presented
their hoops to, the sophomores.
WAA's 1945 wartime edition of
Lantern Night will not feature the
traditional lanterns and hoops, but
unaergraduate women will still wear
their colored ribbons and lanterns
will be carried at the head of the line
of march.

Yanks in Need
Are Benefited
By Red Cross
V-E Day may have meant the end
of the fighting on the western front,
but the ever-wakeful American Red
Cross has not slackened in its job
of assisting those in distress.
American servicemen who have
been prisoners of war in Germany
are the first concern as they are
slowly liberated from camps. The
names of members of the armed for-
ces who have been I prison camps
are now being wired to district Red
Cross chapters, which in turn will
notify local chapters.
Since the War Department itself
is not taking care of the notifying of
families of the prisoners, the Red
Cross will be the only agency which
will furnish anxious families with
news of their men. A home call will
be made by the Home Service depart-
nent of the local chapters, and their
representative will 'endeavor to an-
swer any questions about the ser-
viceman's welfare or whereabouts
with the information which is avail-

Philippines have been brought to

women by dancing with them.
HE RAINBOW Room of the Union
will be appropriately decorated in
red, yellow and black. There will be
novel lighting effects, the most novel
feature of which will be occasional
flash bulbs in the dark room. "We're
going to give those poor timid souls
who struggle around in the dark in
there a chance to see what they're
doing for a change," a spokesman for
the Un'zan announced recently.
A SKIT entitled "The Low Pressure
Salesman" will be presented dur-
ing intermission by George Spauld-
ing, Bill Conant, Ken Holcomb, Dick
Chenoweth, Sanford Perlis, and Bob.
REFRESHMENTS will be dispensed
from the only privately-owned
still in Ann Arbor, and to celebrate
the lifting of the curfew, Bill Lay-
