Union Vice Presidents

L. S. andA.
Dick Bailhe
For some time now the perpetual
gripe of great numbers of Union men
has been, "Why can't w have decent
food at a fair price?" I am one who
shares this gripe, and it is largely for
this reason that I am a candidate for
the Union vice-presidency from the
literary college. It has always been a
puzzle to megthat the Union, sup-
posedly a non-profit student organi-
zation, cannot produce as good a meal
at as low a price as certain downtown
restaurants which are obviously op-
erating at a profit. Certainly, the
Board of Directors of the Union has
been aware of the situation, which
exists. They are also the only body
which can change the existing situa-
tion, but they have done nothing. You
may be assured that I, as a member
of the Board of Directors, would do
everything in my power to make the
Union a "good place to eat." The end
of the war should likewise see the
end of excuses for poor efficiency and
bad service. This is my platform.
Paul John
The Literary College's representa-
tive on the Union Board is the voice
of the students and should see that
their wants are thoroughly consid-
ered. The students sometimes make
wild complaints, but of late their
complaints have been well founded
and deserving of response. The thing
these people who complain forget is
that the Vice President from their
school is the person (with authority)
who canask for changes. He has one
of six student votes on an eleven man
board. The Student Offices is merely
an activities office and can do little
for the desires of the students with
respect to Union policy. That is why
I would like to be a Union Vice Presi-
dent . .. to take an active part in
Union policy. I am for the students
who are voicing desires for changes
and will give my vote to every plan
that will make the Union a Student
Union as it once was. Among many
things the Bowling Alley should re-
open,- the prices should come down,
the Uniofi Merit Awards for student
employees re-established and in gen-
eral a policy involving student mem-
bers and their desires.
I have been associated with the
Student Offices for 6 semesters and
have watched the Board function. As
a result I believe I can perform the
duties of a Vice-President from a
student's standpoint. The President
of the Union can be depended upon
to amplify student demands and with
an organized group of Vice-Presi-
dents results will be obtained.
Curly Walters
There are a couple of war ghosts
I'd like to see dragged out of the
closet between now and next June.
First, I would like to see the Union
dining room reopened. It was always
quite an experience bringing parents
friends or a date to the Union dining
room on a Sunday afternoon. When
last open, two and a half years ago,
it was the finest place in Ann Arbor
to eat.
Second, I feel it's high time the
Union bowling alleys set up business.
It's a crime that the best alleys in
town should become a permanent
war casualty.
Next, I've heard many men, partic-
ularly war vets from other campuses,
lament the absence on the Michigan
campus of a friendly place where a
fellow and a girl can sip a coke and
dance on some free mid-week after-
noon. The main floor Union lounge
and the Soda Bar downstairs between
2:00 and 5:00 would satisfy this re-
quest of many male students.
Last, I would like to see a rejuve-
nation of the "Union News", the
Union publication. One of the best
ways of informing new men on cam-
pus of the Union organization, who's
doing what about the place, and of

instilling a genuine interest,in the,
Union is to tell them about it, at
frequent intervals, in a student-writ-
ten organ. Last year the "News"
came out two times; once a month is
certainly not too much. Also, a
monthly publication would provide
a further means of integrating men
actively into the Union program.
My activities in three years on the
University of Michigan campus in-
clude: President of Allen-Rumsey
House, West Quad; Michigan Daily;
Play Production; Vice-President of1
Phi Sigma Delta fraternity.
Max Weil
In selecting student officers, the
voter should ask the following ques-
tions:
1. What prompts the candidate to
seek office?
2. Is the candidate capable of per-
forming the functions that the office{
(of Union Vice President) entails.
With these questions in mind, I
shall endeavor to state my aims and
qualifications, as a nominee for the1
Michigan Union Vice Presidency from
the literary college and the Graduate'
school.
From my point of view, the Union
should be a social center for Mich-
igan male students. While the. cafe-
teria, swimming pool, barber ship,

co-ed social activities should be con-
sidered. I have voiced concrete pro-
posals and should like to have my
fellow students join me, for it is
worthwhile to remember that the
male students of this University are
the legal and actual owners of the
Union and it is up to them to shape
its program and to get most out of
their property.
My interest extends as well to the
Union cafeteria. I am in support of
the Veteran's Organization which has
inquired as to the feasibility of lower-
ing food prices and making meals
more complete, in the interest of the
many independent students who eat
there regularly.
All in all, then, I would welcome
the opportunity to take an active part
in planning a new, social inte-
grated program for the Union.
My organizational work on this
campus has included that in coop-
eratives of which I am a member, and
former steward, purchaser, and per-
sonnel committee member. I am also
a member and present treasurer of
the "Deutscher Verein."
Therefore, I've had an opportunity
to observe social organization, meal
planning, purchasing, and budget-
ing. This has not only given me a
valuable background but has also
stimulated my interest and initial at-
titude of the Union organization.
Glenn White
I feel qualified for the office of
Vice-President of the Michigan Union
from the Literary School for the
following reasons. One, Have served
on tryout staff of Union for one sem-
ester and two as chairman of Pub-
licity Committee on Michigan Union
Executive Council. Two, Served three
semesters on business staff of the
"Michigan Daily" as Accounts Man-
ager. Three, Co-Chairman of Home-
coming Committee, 1944 and member
of Bomber Scholarship Committee,
1944. Now enrolled in seventh sem-
ester on this campus, having spent
3 as a civilian and 3 as a member of
the Navy V-12 prgram.
Because of my experience in cam-
pus activities and my interest in the
office I am petitioning for, I believe
that I have proven myself Qualified.
I plan, if elected, to use my official
capacity to further the interests of
the student body, basing my decisions
on the majority trends indicated by
them.
Engineering
Fred Comlossy
I, Frederic B. Comlossy, a junior in
the School of Forestry and Conserva-
tion, am petitioning for the office of
vice-president of the Union Council
on the basis of my past experience in
administration and on the basis of
what I.propose to do for the Union.
As a student of Scott High School
in Toledo, Ohio, I was president of the
Toledo Area Junior Red Cross, vice-
president, of the sophomore class,
treasurer of the junior class, and serv-
ed for three years as a student repre-
sentative to the school's governing
body.
As a student at the University of
Michigan, I am a member of the For-
estry Club, Business Manager for the
"Michigan Forester", and a member
of Phi Kappa Psi fraternity. During
the past summer I held the position
of assistant to the director of the For-
estry Summer Camp which involved
considerable administrative work,
It is only through progressive plan-
ning that the Michigan Union can
remain the center of campus activi-
ties. This is especially true during
the present transition between war
and peace. If elected vice-president,
representing the combined schools of
Business Administration, Architecture
and Design, Music, Pharmacology, and
Forestry, I shall do my best to see
that the Union continues to serve the
best interests of Michigan men by
upholding the policies that have stood
the test of time, and by advocating

changes when old procedures are out-
moded.
John Johnson
I, John W. Johnson, Jr., a -student
in good standing in the School of
Business Administration, do heieby
submit statement of qualifications
for election to the office of Union
vice-president, representing the com-
bined schools.
This will be my sixth semester in
residence at the University. During
that time I gained a full knowledge
of Michigan activities and traditions,
with the desire to support them ac-
tively because of their importance as
an integral part of college life. I
have worked on Union student com-
mittees, gaining much valuable ex-
perience which will help greatly in
fulfilling the duties of the office I
seek. I am a member of Alpha Phi
Omega, men's fraternity which works
with the Union and other groups in
sponsoring campus projects, and of
the American Veterans Committee. I
have also worked on other campus
activities, such as the Ship's Ball
committee, the dance sponsored by
the V-12 Unit.
I was discharged last October, and
returned to the University after an
absence of two semesters. During
mv time in service. I met men from

L. S. and A.
Charlotte Bobrecker'
As a member of the '47 Corps,
Bomber Scholarship and present JGP
publicity committees, I have helped
plan money-raising functions, also
poster and newspaper programs. A
resident of Martha Cook dorm, and
junior night editor on The Daily, I
feel that I could manage dormitory
and campus-wide publicity for the
dance. In the past I have handled
publicity for such campus events as
the appearance of Earl "Father"
Hines and the University Concert
band at "Symphony and Swing" in
the spring term, 1944, the band and
music student concerts, all Choral
Union concerts, including the special
May Festival supplement.
The last traditional J-Hop, biggest
social event of the year at Michigan,
has, I believe, set a criterion for the
class of '47. Two big name bands
could be engaged for an entire week-
end, in addition to which an early
morning breakfast at the Union,
bridge, cribbage, and ping pong
tournaments might be planned for
between dances.
Veterans returning from overseas
duty, seniors who will graduate in
the spring, freshmen, Army and Navy
personnel on campus, and juniors in
all the colleges want to see the re-
vival of a few of Michigan's out-
standing pre-war social traditions.
V-Ball was a wartime substitute. The
class of '47 would like to start the
ball rolling.
Joan Buckmaster
This year's J-Hop must be the best
this campus 4as ever seen. Most
seniors have never been to a Hop
and will never go to another, and so
this occasion will be especially im-
portant for them. I believe that be-
sides going back as much as possible
to the elaborate plans of former
Hops, we can make this one bigger
and better by using many new ideas.
I have enjoyed working on other
dance committees, and I want to
help make J-Hop an event for which
our class will always be remembered.
Arthur DerDerian
I, A. Rebel DerDerian, will state
only one qualification, that of being
a veteran with over three years serv-
ice seeking to get back into collegian
social life by petitioning for a posi-
tion on the J-Hop Committee.
Lynne Ford
The 1946 J-Hop should be the
greatest splurge so far in the return
to pre-war social activities.
The last J-Hop was in 1942, which
means that seniors now in school as
well as recently returned veterans
have never had the thrill of a big
J-Hop weekend.
Three name bands should be used
at the two dances. The formal dance
Friday night would feature two
bands, one on either side of the room,
which would alternate sets. The in-
formal affair Saturday would have
one band.
Since such strict limitations were
placed on decorations, programs, and
corsages during the war, the formal
dance should be made as gala as
possible. Booths, furnished and dec-
orated by various houses, would pro-
vide colorful and convenient places
to meet friends and rest between
dances. The refreshment bar at one
end of the dancefloor, the band-
stands, and the blank walls at either
end of the room should be decorated.
The actual theme of the dance and
decorations should be decided by the
central committee as a whole.
Tickets for the two affairs should

be sold as one ticket, at as nominal
a price as expenses would allow. Sales
would be opened first to juniors, then
to seniors, and last to underclass-
men.
I think I have the necessary quali-
fications to serve on the central com-
mittee for J-Hop. Positions I have
held on campus include newspaper
publicity for Homecoming Weekend,
publicity for JGPlay, night editor on
the women's staff of the Daily, pub-
licity and assistant social chairman
of Mosher Hall, and other committee
activities. I am an active member of
Delta Delta Delta sorority, and a
junior in Lit School.
Pat Hayes
I was assistant chairman of the
Floor Show Committee for Sopho-
more Cabaret last year, and I am
manager of the swimming club this
year. In my house I was chairman
of the Homecoming display last year,
and am Activities Chairman this
year. Having served on many dance
committees in high school, I am very
interested in this kind of work.
If I am elected, I will do all in my
power to see that this J-Hop is as
magnificent as those in the late
1930's. I feel that a huge publicity
campaign should be launched to give
the underclassmen some conception
of what J-Hop has been in the past.
I will only mention 2 of my ideas
for themes for the dance. A "Winter
Wonder Land" would brighten the

stands could be chocolate covered

My main purpose is to stay away
from over-used war themes, and
make the 1946 J-Hop light and gay-
but unforgettable.
Collee Ide
This is it! The year when we can
dig down deep into the archivesto
pull J-Hop from the mothballs, mem-
ories and used decorations of 1943 to
produce a J-Hop this year as stupen-
dous as "reconversion times" will per-
mit. This can and will be THE dance
of the year! But in order to make this
Hop a howling success, complete co-
ordination, cooperation, and organ-
ization are absolutely essential! It's
the students' duty to vote for commit-
tee members who possess the ability
to see that these aims are effected
quickly and efficiently. I, Collee Ide,
sincerely believe I am qualified to
carry out these aims.
Experience in high school as class
treasurer, general chairman of dance
committees, and secretary-treasurer
of various organizations provided in
analyzing, managing financial re-
ports, recording, working with people
individually and in groups, that has
proved valuable in the positions of re-
sponsibility I have held here at Mich-
igan. To list some - Dorm War Ac-
tivities Chairman, '44-45; WAA board
member; JGP representative; Gen-
eral Chairman WAA Rec Rally; Co-
Chairman Activities Awards for Rec-
ognition Night last year; Soph Cab-
aret (Music Bar) and President and
Manager of University Skating Clubs.
An extensive petition now in the pos-
session of Men's Judiciary Council
will testify that I have thoroughly in-
vestigated all aspects of J-Hop and
have accordingly made constructive
suggestions.
That's it in a nutshell. Sooo, don't
forget that it's most important that
you get your ident card and dash to
the polls on Friday to put your ballot
voting for Collee Ide for J-Hop, in
the box!!!
Ethel Isenberg
Hey, kids, how about a Winter-
Wonderland Weekend, a super-special
all-campus house-party, starting with
a formal on Friday night and ending
with a brunch Sunday morning. I
know it can be done.
Let's bring the following ideas from
out of this world into our world at
Michigan J-Hop, 1946.
J-Hop can be a more glamorours
than ever affair with every second of
the biggest week-end of the year
filled with thrills and excitement.
Supposing we start off with a for-
mal Friday night, (3 o'clock permis-
sion for all girls on campus), featur-
ing a name band, (chosen by all-
campusbpoll), withssnow-balls and
sleigh-bells filling the air at this
"Snow-Ball," and couples dancing
under a canopy of twinkling stars.
Why not have a Sports Carnival
Saturday afternoon? A ski show, a
toboggan party, a basketball game, an
aquacade, and a skating show to ap-
peal to the sporting instincts of all
Michiganders. A big bon-fire and all
campus sing will be a grand finale
to a fun packed afternoon.
Saturday night, another dance, in-
formal this time. Another name band,
and all hop-trotters will receive a
favor to help them remember this
week-end.
And still the fun isn't over. Sunday
morning a band-up brunch of waffles
and bacon in the League and Union
grills.
Here's to a perfect Winter-Wonder-
land!
With proper organization these
dreams can become a reality. Because
of the experience I've had on Pan-
Hellenic Assembly bail last year, and
on various social committees, I'd like
the opportunity to prove that this
can be done at Michigan.
Lois Iverson

I, Lois R. Iverson, submit my peti-
tion for a member of the J-Hop
central committee. I am a Junior, a
member of Alpha Delta Pi sorority,
and have ben on the central commit-
tee for the 1945 Homecoming dance,
a member of the central committee
for Orientation, member of the ticket
committee for the Soph Music Bar,
and am a Night Editor of the Michi-
gan Daily.
If elected to the J-Hop central
committee I will work to present to
all students the best and most gala
J-Hop of all times. Many veterans
on campus this year were herefor
past J-Hops-the 1946 J-Hop must
be even better than those before the
war. To plan for and to present such
a dance means a lot of work on the
part of all committee members. If
elected, I am willing to work in be-
half of all the students and service-
men on campus for the post-war 1946
J-Hop weekend and dance.
Marge Kohlhaas
For those of us who have seen only
the curtailed activities of war years
and for the newly enrolled veterans,
J-Hop will be the first evidence of
a return to pre-war campus tra-
rdition.

committee for Homecoming Dance;
as well as helping on various com-
mittees for Recognition Night, Soph
Cabaret, and dormitory activities.
William Lambert
I,William Lambert, am running for
the 1946 J-Hop committee, and offer
the following qualifications:
I have worked four and one half
semesters on the Michigan Daily,/
where I first became acquainted with
Student affairs. My work on the In-
terfraternity Council staff brought
me closer to campus activities, and
presented me with the opportunity of
helping in the administratin of
them. My membership in Sphinx,
junior honorary society, and tenure
in office as president of my social
fraternity have both served to bring
me in direct contact with various
campus groups. I am seeking a posi-
tion on the J-hop committee be-
cause I am anxious to see not only
the pre-war dance return, but a bet-
ter, all-campus, post-war dance in-
augurated. If I am elected, this will
be my purpose in serving on the
committee.
Bettyann Larsen
As a night editor on The Daily, and
having worked on the paper for four
semesters, I, Bettyann Larsen, feel
that this experience may be helpful
in publicity coverage for the J-Hop.
As a sophomore, I was a member of
the central committee of the Soph
Project, and during high school, I
was president of a Spanish and a lit-
erary club and chairman of the sen-
ior banquet, which 'has given me
some knowledge of preparation for
social events such as the J-Hop will
be.
Since this will be the first J-Hop
since the war began, I want to do all
I can to make it the best one-and
that is perhaps, the best qualification
I have.
Richard Roeder
An event of the magnitude of a
Michigan J-Hop' requires careful
planning and the diligent efforts of
a committee of experienced members.
For J-Hop Weekend to return to its
rightful place as the outstanding so-
cial event of the college year, it is
necessary for the student body to
elect committee members who are
not only willing and anxious to gain
this end, but also qualified for the
position.
In pursuing his duties a committee
representative will be required to
contact numerous University officials
and to actuate various official Uni-
versity procedures. If he is already
acquainted with the people with
whom he will work and the prevail-
ing methods of getting things done,
his results will naturally be that
much more satisfactory.
The main event of J-Hop Weekend
will be the big dance in the Intra-
mural Building. As any of you who
have served on a dance committee
can testify, there are innumerable
factors to be looked after; and in a
dance of J-Hop proportions, these
problems multiply. Among the siz-
able dances on which I have actively
served as a committee member are:
the Glen Gray dance in the fall of
1943-remembered by many as the
finest dance of recent years; the
New Year's Eve dance of 1944; and
co-chairman of this year's Home-
coming dance. In addition, as a Un-
ion Executive Council member, I am
chairman of this year's Union For-
mal.
As further evidence of practical
administrative experience, I cite the
ability gained in past years while
serving as president of my freshman
dormitory, president of Phi Eta Sig-
ma, Freshman Honor Society, and
secretary of Phi Delta Theta frater-
nity.
Margaret Thompson

In the election for J-Hop Commit-
tee, I am running for the position of
Patron's chairman. I feel I am qual-
ified for this position as I have served
in this capacity for the 1945 Assembly
Recognition Night. I have also been
a member of the League Social Com-
mittee for the past two years, acting
as hostess at the Ruthven Teas. At
present I am a member of the Uni-
versity Guide Service. I have also
participated in several extracurric-
ular activities such as War Activities
and Red Cross.
Aside from filling the basic qualifi-
cations for the Committee, I am gen-
uinely interested in seeing this year's
J-Hop, the first since Pearl Harbor,
the best in the history of the Uni-
versity of Michigan. It should be an
event that one will remember long
after graduation and if I am elected,
I will-do everything in my ability to
make it all that it should be.
Joan Wilk.
I am running as a candidate for
the J-Hop committee because I am
sincerely interested in the presenta-
tion of a gala J-Hop weekend, with
well-known, danceable orchestras
and entertainment of a high caliber
for Michigan students.
This first peacetime revival of J-
Hop should prove to all that Mich-

ciety. During 1944-45, I was assist-
ant chairman of Sophomore Project
and was engaged in publicity for vol-
unteer hospital work, as well as for
Ship's Ball, V-Ball and the Union
dances.
In view of my experience with the
above campus activities, I believe
that I am well qualified to serve on
the J-Hop committee.
Editor's Note-Connie Essig, Gil-
bert Iser, Estelle Klein, Lynn Sper-
ber, H. Thomas, Janice Ward and
Janet Young are also running for
J-Hop Committee in the Lit. School,
but did not submit statements.
Engineering
Charles Helmick
Past experience in campus activi-
ties is:
1. Slide Rule Ball Committee
2. President, Engineering Council
(two terms)
3. Men's Judiciary Council (two
terms)
4. Executive Council, Michigan Un-
ion (three terms) '
5. Triangles, Junior Engineers'
Honor Society
6. Head of Men's Orientation (two
terms)
Directly connected to qualifications
for J-Hop committee is the experi-
ence I gained on the dance commit-
tee last spring for the Slide Rule Ball
which featured Louis Prima's band.
The position offered excellent oppor-
tunities to observe the organization
and execution of plans for a large
campus dance. Work on such a com-
mittee gives invaluable knowledge of
what to stress and what to avoid in
planning for a campus dance.
Aims for the J-Hop include making
it as much like pre-war editions as
possible. Having read over several
reports on previous J-Hops, I have
many concrete ideas for the dance;
the bulk of ideas should be taken
from all the committee members. Be-
side this, however, I have thought up
and outlined plans for organizing the
committee itself, which is to be
chosen at the election. This is an im-
portant point since one of the three
persons elected from Engineering
school will be chairman of the dance
committee. If the dance is to be a
success, we must have a smooth func-
tioning, efficient group in charge.
Henry Horldt
With the return to normal prewar
college life, the old traditions are
being revived. The J-Hop, Michi-
gan's biggest social event, should be
brought back to equal or exceed the
past dances. It is my wish, and will
be my aim, that the house parties,
two band formal dance, decorations
and favors be returned as part of the
J-Hop.
My qualification for a place on
the committee include two semesters
on the Union Executive Council,
member of the Varsity Glee Club,
land Triangles, the Junior engineer-
ing honor society. As chairman of a
Union dance and tournament, I
gained valuable experience in han-
dling such functions. My contacts
have not been one-sided. On the
Council I learn of the desires of the
independent men on campus, and as
an active member of Sigma Alpha
Epsilon social fraternity I can get
a good perspective of the views of
fraternity men.
I know that I am willing, and feel
that I am able to hold a position on
the J-Hop committee.
Morrie Rochlin
"Entertainment and excitement"
as the theme for the first post-war
J-Hop, will set the Michigan Campus
back to normal activity.
Traditionally the -Hop was a
weekend affair composed of formal
dances on Friday and. Saturday
nights, featuring two "big name"
bands. Why change the tradition?
An excellent feature at any dance

would be a floor show, perhaps some
professional entertainment, to add
to the excitement.
Besides the evening affairs, plans
afternoon event, where perhaps
afternoon event, where persaps
everyone participates-something on
the order of a carnival or an outing.
Now that rationing on meats has
been dropped, many people have
been eager for the steak roasts they
used to enjoy in the past.
I have had several opportunities in
the planning of dances here on
campus. As a member of Alpha Phi
Omega, I was in charge of the VE
Dance that took place last spring to
sell war stamps during the 6th War
Loan.
During my sophomore year I was
a member of the Union staff, where
I participated on the Social Commit-
tee.
My thought in becoming a member
of the J-Hop committee or any cam-
pus organization is in bringing the
Michigan campus to its normalcy, to
bring the students closer together
and back to peace time activities.
Your vote for me will back up these
thoughts and bring former campus
activities back into reality.

in charge of ticket sales for the Union
Formal. During the past summers I
helped with similar functions on an
all campus dance which Triangles
presented.
While Secretary of the Engineering
Council, I learned about the jobs con-
nected with such a dance as the
Engineering Ball, an all campus
dance put on by the Council during
every fall semester. Through this
source and reports on the previous
J-Hops, I have several ideas which
will be helpful to the J-Hop Com-
mittee, and will make this year's J-
Hop like the ones of old.
Harold Walters
Statement of Harold Walters for
J-Hop Committee from Engineering
School.
I am serving my third semester on
the Union Executive Council, my sec-
ond semester on the Engineering
Council, serving at present as secre-
tary. In these positions, I have serv-
ed on committees for many Union
dances, and on the refreshment com-
mittee, through Bomber Scholarship
committee, of the Senior Ball. I feel
that this year's J-Hop should return
to the pre-war standard. The suc-
cess of the dances held during the
last year at the I. M. building has
shown that students will be fully be-
hind a big dance. J-Hop, to be truly
successful, must measure up to the
idea of a big dance which existed be-
fore the war.
Combined
Roberta Ames
Not many of the students now on
campus are acquainted with the vari-
ous details of past J-Hop weekends,
known throughout the Big Ten as
the trademark of Michigan. I have
investigated the past J-Hop Reports
and have a desire to enlarge upon
previous plans with my own sugges-
tions in an effort to re-establish the
major social event of the season.
My primary aim will be to establish
cooperation between the central
committee and all the houses on
campus. The house parties have al-
ways been the side lights which made
the dance one to remember and the
good feeling between all the houses
unifies the student body for this
affair. Among the routine* affairs of
planning a dance I think that a con-
centrated effort should be made to
keep the student body informed of
the weekend calendar by an appeal-
ing publicity campaign.
I would greatly desire to be a mem-
ber of the committee and assist in
planning the 1946 J-Hop.

I believe that this year's J-Hop
should be the biggest and best week-
end in the history of the University
of Michigan. Not only have our grad-
uating seniors missed out on this all-
time big dance, but many of the un-
dergraduates are unaware of the
memories and good times that past
J-Hops have held for all Michigan
men and women.
We have had many dances which
have sponsored "big bands," but,
since 1942, there has never been a
two-night affair with two top name
bands. The J-Hop should begin on
Friday night with a formal dance at
the Intramural Building, complete
with flowers, favors, refreshments
and decorations. The girders of the
I-M building could be easily hidden
with draped material, and no one
can doubt the improved acoustics.
Saturday night is just as big an
event, except that the dance is infor-
mal.
Tickets for the weekend could be
sold as a single admittance to both
dances and kept at a minimum cost
This J-Hop should be an "all-out"
Michigan affair with every class
completely represented.
I am a Junior in the School of
Business Administration and an ac-

tive member of Delta Delta Delta
Sorority. I have participated on com-
mittees for Frosh, Project, Sophomore
Project, Panhellenic Ball and am the
Costume Chairman on the Central
Committee for the Junior Girls' Play
this year. My main qualifications are
that I am genuinely interested in be-
ing a member of this committee to
:nake J-Hop a weekend to be re-
membered.
Joan Schle-
Joan Schlee, Chi Omega, is one of
the four candidates from the com-
bined colleges for J-Hop Committee.
She is a junior and in her three
semesters of activities she has ac-
complished a great deal and carried
much responsibility. She has acted
creditably in the capacity of Soph-
omore Judiciary Aide, Assistant
Chairman of JGP, Co-Chairman of
the Finance Committee of the Home-
coming Dance, and Orientation Ad-
viser. These are impressive, but they
are only a few of the many activities
in which she has participated.
Joan is in favor of a really big
week-end, really a VE-J-Hop. Imag-
ine this - a three-dance weekend
with big name bands playing the
tunes for the formal balls Friday and
Saturday nights at the Intramural
Building. Saturday afternoon a tea
dance with Billy Layton and some
popular trio providing entertainment
at the League or Union, and attract-
ive door prizes at any or all of these
