Semi-formal Will Be Given
In Honor of Dental Seniors
Dental students and their guests
will dance to the music of Bill Lay-
ton and his orchestra at the 12th an-
nual Odonto Ball, scheduled from 9
p.m. to midnight Friday in the Rain-
bow Room' of the Union.
Only members of the Dental School
and dental faculty are eligible to at-
tend the semi-formal affair. Gradu-
ating seniors will be honored at the
ball, which is traditionally presented
by the junior class.
The ball originated in 1936 when
dental students felt they should have
a closed dance similar to Slide Rule
and Caduceus Ball. The name
"Odonto," which means "of the
tooth," was chosen by the first com-
mittee as an appropriate name for
the affair.
Patti DuPont, coed vocalist, will be
featured with Layton's new campus
band at the ball, and private parties
are planned by dental fraternity
houses to precede the event.

loneliness or doubts, to those
wishing to revitalize their personali-
ties, to those whose lives lack excite-
ment, I present with pride the 7-day
plan for winning friends.
Some time ago the pocket maga-
zine which is your best bet decided to
help its readers enrich their lives
and to this end published a scientific
formula for devastating acquaint-
ances. Starting with the not too
startling premise that "each one of
us has a personality," the article
urges us to reveal the fineness that is
in us, and presents a heroic scheme
for revealing this fineness.
The author warns us that "you
may encounter surprise, you may
even be rebuffed"; but if you have
a sincere desire to improve your-
self, nothing else to db for the next
Week, and a skin several inches
thick, here it is.
QN THE FIRST DAY you are to
write a letter to some old ac-
quaintance. Tell him you think of
him and remember him with pleas-
ure; that you have never forgotten
something he did for you.
On the second and sixth days you
smile-really smile-at every ac-
quaintance you meet, presumably
giving your facial muscles a rest the
other five days. On the second day
you watch for or create the oppor-
tunity to praise at least one person
outside your family. Your family
doesn't count.
On the seventh day you encour-
age someone you meet to talk for
at least twenty minutes about his
problems, his own -thoughts, his
own interests. You may feel a
