Biddle Says Corcoran's
Influence Was 'Overrated'
WASHINGTON, Dec. 9.- (P)-
Attorney-General Biddle expressed
the opinion today that Thomas G.
(Tommy the Cork) Corcoran's influ-
ence with the Justice Department
was somewhat over-rated.
The cabinet official appeared be-
fore the Senate Immigration Com-
mittee ostensibly to recommend ap-
proval of his executive assistant, Ugo
Carusi, as immigration and Natura-
lization Commissioner replacing Earl
G. Harrison, resigned.
The Carusi nomination, however,
became only a peg on which to hang
a three-hour give 'and take on the
recent ouster of Assistant Attorney-
General Norman M. Littell.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 9-(lP)-The
Anglo-American clash over Greek'
and Italian politics is regarded here4
as having cleared the air consider-
ably for the meeting early next year
of Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin.

To the/ question, "Which is the
most popular dancing spot on cam-
pus?" all students will enthusiastic-
ally answer., "The Union Ballroom."
This is the twenty-fifth season that
the Rainbow Room of the Michigan
Union has maintained tops in popu-
larity. Since its grand opening dur-
ing the 1919-1920 school year, the
ballroom has been used consistently
for dances by various organizations
Before the war came, most of the
organizations on campus sponsor-
ed at least one dancea year. The
Galens, the junior and senior Me-
dical honor society, sponsored the
Caduceus Ball while the Dent stu-
dents on campus backed the Odon-
to Ball. The Engineer's Ball, and
the Slide Rule Ball were staged by
the Engineer's on campus. Other
popular dances of peace . times,
were the Architects' Ball and the
Bus. Ad. students' Capitalist Ball.
The Michigan Union was the lo-
cation of all these gala affairs.
One of the most popular dances,
has been the annual Fall and Spring
Union Formals, sponsored by the
Michigan Union Executive Council.
Last Saturday, the tenth Union For-
mal was held under the directorship
of Jim Plate and Bob Precious. It
has been a tradition to hold the
Union Fall Formal after the last
football game of the year. The
Spring Formal, on the other hand, is
usually put on in April. The Union
Council also sponsored the Bunny
Hop at Easter, and the New Year's
Eve Jamboree. These were always
considered outstanding events in the
campus social program. In addi-
tion the Union has also given the
students an opportunity to dance on
weekends at its weekend dances.
Besides the regularly scheduled
dances by the Union, the Executive
Council also held many mix'ers in
the Union Ballroom for the purpose
of helping students on campus be-
come better acquainted. Freshman
Tea Dances, Coffee Hours, G. I.
Stomps, and most recently the Grid
Shuffles have attracted large crowds
through the Unions doors. It has
been a tradition on campus for
many years to hold a Seltzer Shuffle
on New Year's Day. Each person
who attended the dance was given
a bottle of seltzer water so that he or
she would sober up and get rid of
that morning after New Year's Eve
Many prominent campus bands
have supplied the music for the
Union at the dances held in Ball-
room. At the time of the grand
opening to the Ballroom, Paul Wil-
son and Chuck Wolcott were lead-
ing dance bands on campus. They
were followed by Bob Stenile and
a brief visit by Freddie Grofe. Aft-
er them followed Bill Sawyer and
For many years, Sawyer and his
band were held in the highest esteem
by the students here at Ann Arbor.
When Bill Sawyer was called to Chi-
cago to assume a government posi-
tion, his place was taken by the
very popular Billy Layton. Layton
has made a fine showing this season.
With his Sinatra voice and swell
band, Layton was acclaimed by all
at last week's formal, and can be
heard in the future any Friday or
Saturday night from 9:00 until 12:00,
keeping alive the traditions of the
Rainbow Room of the Michigan Un-
