ictivity Positions
Will Be fnnounced
Instailtion ight
All Women Urged To Attend Traditional
Event; Honor Societies Will Tap; Reception
Honoring New Officers To Follow In League

Installation Night, an annual event
which climaxes a year of women's
extra-curricular activities, will be
held at 7:30 p.m. Monday in Rack-
ham Lecture Hall.
The affair will be concerned with
the announcement of those women
who will head key campus activities
for 1946-47. Among the positions to
be announced are the new members
of League Council, members of Judic-
iary Council, Panhellenic and As-
sembly Boards and orientation advis-
ors, plus the chairmen and committee
members of JGPlay and Soph Cab-
Honor Societies To Tap
Also on the Installation Night pro-
gram will be tapping conducted by
Mortarboard, senior women's honor
society; Senior Society, which hon-
ors independent senior women; and
Scroll, honor society for affiliated
senior women.
In accordance with a new policy,
the honor societies will go directly
to the women they are asking to join
their groups and will dispense with
the traditional "tour" of the lecture
hall, which was carried on in former
years. Membership in the hono"
societies is based upon scholarship,
activities and service.
Scholarship Winners To Be Revealed
Also to be revealed at Installation
Night are the three winners of the
Ethel A. McCormick scholarships
which are offered to sophomore and
junior women who have participated
in extra-curricular activities and who
have done above average work in
their studies.
A reception, honoring the new
members of League Council, Judiciary
Council, and the newly-tapped mem-
bers of the honor societies will be
held in the League Ballroom immed-
iately following the Installation cere-
monies. Free cokes will be served and
all women are invited to attend.
Houses will sit together in blocs
at Installation Night and a floor plan
of the seating arrangement will be
posted in the lobby of the Rackham
Building the day the event is to take
Record Crowd Will Attend
Sororities have been asked by the'
Installation Night central committee
to count the event as a house meet-
ing or make it a required function.
It is expected that a record crowd
will attend the annual affair because

more women petitioned this spring
for positions than ever before, since
the merit system was instituted.
Those women who are to be install-
ed will take office at the ceremonies
and at that time, the 1946-47 season
for women's activities will commence.
Dance Revived
By Lawyers
The 1946 edition of Crease Ball will
be presented from' 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.
Friday, May 17, in the League Ball-
In a revival of the Law School
tradition, the '46 lawyers' dance will
feature the music of Ray Herbeck
and his orchestra and their "music
with romance".
Peter Price heads the committee
for the ball, which is presented by
the senior class of the Law School.
The dance will feature the "Raw Re-
view" which is to be presented to
those attending in place of favors
and programs.
This year's Crease Ball will be they
first to be presented since 1942, when.
the dance was held in the Law Club.
Previous balls were traditionally held
at the League on the same day that
the engineers presented Slide Rule
at the Union.
The dance will be semi-formal and
women are to receive late permis-
sion to attend Crease Ball.

W ives Club Picnic,

Wives Club picnic should be made

erson, club president.

son at 4018 or Mrs. Richard Gregg

Mirrors Needed
For Decorations
At Panhel Ball
Dt, you really need that extra mir-
ror in your purse?
If ycu don't, the decoration com-
would appreciate your contributing
it to their mirror collection, which
will be used in making stars to cover
the Intramnural Building.
A gift certificate will be the l
award bade to the house whose
girls contribute the largest amount
of mirrers-according to wight-
per girl. The size of the certificate
and the store at which it will be
valid will be announced later.
The "Heavenly Daze" theme of the
ball requires the usual moon, stars
and Pearly Gate, In order to have
said moon and stars, however, pieces
of mirrors, regardless of their size.
are needed to make the necessary
constellations and hcavnly bodies.
"Since this is a dance for every
girl on campus and since it is the
only one of its kind held at the
University, we do hope the girls
will really get out and contribute
their extra mirrors," Leslie McVey
and Barbara Hitchcock, co-chair-
men of the ticket committee stated.
"We cannot have the starry decora-
tions we have planned to cover the
bareness of the IM Building unless
every girl gives at least one little mir-
ror," they explained, "and we want
the dance to be the best decorated
and best dance of the semester."
The committee will collect the con-
tributions during an all-house can-
vass Monday. "If boxes have not
already been placed in your house,"
they asked, "have one ready for us
when we make the rounds."
The award to the winning house will
be made during the intermission at
the ball.

"Miss Mac" explained that both or-

sponsor events such as Panhellenic-

ing further, she stated that the or-

fices on the third floor of the League.
Miss McCormick expressed the
opinion that women assumed more
responsible positions during the war
when projects such as hospital vol-
unteers, USO and the selling of war
bonds and stamps were sponsored.
WITH AN EYE to the future, Miss
W McCormick said that she feels
women will be more civic-minded
and will continue to use their good
judgment in deciding issues pertain-
ing to the things they have to do.
"The reason that they have contin-
ued to improve the caliber of their
work in activities is due to the fact
that they have ideas and the oppor-
tunity to work them out. They are
given responsibility in the positions
they hold and have the backing of
the entire University from start to
Reminiscing about her experiences
as social director, Miss McCormick
recalled an incident at a pre-war

to make a drawing for door prizes

waited expectantly for the first ticket

much to her chagrin, Miss McCorm-
ick discovered that she had drawn
her own ticket.
