Celebration Dec. 30
University students will celebrate
New Year's Eve early this year at an
informal dance sponsored by mem-
bers of the Union Executive Council
to be held from 9 p.m. to midnight
Saturday, Dec. 30 in the Rainbow
Room of the Union.
1945 will be properly ushered in at
11 p.m. Noisemakers and paper hat
favors will be distributed at inter-
mission to all couples attending thes
dance. A University ruling that no
dances be held on Sunday necessi-
tates this premature celebration.
Jimmy .Strauss To Pay
Jimmy Strauss and his popular
Detroit band will furnish music for
the dance. Strauss appeared at the
University for three campus dances
last year. . He comes to Ann Arbor
from the Grande Ballroom in Detroit.
His band has also served contracts
rooms and the Book-Cadillac and
with the Graystone and Vanity Ball-
Tickets for the dance will go on
sale at 8 a.m. Tuesday at the Union
desk. According to Joe Milillo, co-
chairman, the entire number of tick-
ets will be turned in at the desk and
sales will continue until all tickets
are sold. Only Union members may
buy tickets and their membership
card must be exhibited.
Favors for Everyone
Milillo is being aided in making
arrangements for the dance by co-
chairman Byron Webb Jr. and Paul
John. "The committee is planning
on having a large amount of con-
fetti, streamers and other favors tol
distribute to everyone at the dance,"
"Although wartime conditions de-
mand that students remain on cam-
pus for New Year's, there is no
reasona why the spirit of the celebra-
tion cno be as enthusiastic as
peacetime spirit. Let's make this a
celebration for Allied victory in
1945," he added.
'Snow To Draw
Taking advantage of the snow, the
Outdoor Sports Club wil hold a skiing
and tobogganing party at 2 p. m.

The group will meet at the WAB
where they will rent their equipmentI
and proceed to the Arboretum. Those
who have their own sleds, toboggans,
or skiis are asked to bring them also.
"Since we so seldom have snow, it
will be a wonderful opportunity for
the coeds and men to get out and
ha,-e winter sports," said Lee Well-
man, '46, manager of the Outdoor
Sports Club. "And," she continued,!
"we are especially inviting the sol-!
diers and sailors stationed on campus
to come tomorrow.
For those who desire instruction in

Veterans from Percy Jones may
have missed the bus, but they cer-
tainly didn't miss the boat when it
came to really enjoying themselves
here in Ann Arbor last Saturday
Qriginally the boys were to come
down for the basketball game and,
in cooperation with the hospital
authorities, Panhellenic invited them
to dinner. Arrangements were made
with five sorority houses, and the
buses from Battle Creek were to
arrive here about 5 p.m. And they
did-Battle Creek time.
As a result of the 'following late
dinner, they arrived at the basketball
game just in time to see the last half.
Undaunted by such a disrupted
schedule, the veterans returned to
some of the houses and spent the
rest of the evening there.
Women interested in serving as
orientation advisors for the eoming
spring, summer and fall semesters
must turn in their petitions to the
League by 5 p.m. today.
