Louis Prima, rare combination of
personal showman and top-flight
musician, who will headline the 1946
edition of Senior Ball from 10 p.m. to
2 a.m. Friday at the, Intramural
Building, promises laughs from his
audience as well as danceable music.
Prima's style mixes old time N'Or-
leans jazz and modern swing idiom
into a blend of the best in dance
music, satisfying votaries of sweet
as well as devotees of swing.
Virtuoso of the glorified cornet,
Prima's careen to fame began on
Basin Street in New Orleans. Born
in the midst of the cradle of modern
jazz, it is little wonder that his
talent should turn to music. Louis
Armstrong, King Oliver, and Bud-
die Peetie, all time greats in the
trumpet world, were in their Or-
leans heyday when young Louis
was at the impressionable age. Dis-
carding his violin for a horn, Pri-

Final games in the WAA Softball
Tournament will be played tomorrow
and Tuesday at the Palmer Field
diamonds near the Women's Athletic
Building.
In the A tournament finals, Kappa
Kappa Gamma will play Collegiate
Sorosis from 5 to 6:30 p.m. tomorrow,
according to Lucile Sheetz, softball
manager. Neither of these teams has
lost a game in this year's WAA com-
petitions.
Mosher and Delta Delta Delta will
vie for honors in the B 'tournament
from 6:30 p.m to 8 p.m. Tuesday.
Each of these teams has lost only
one game throughout the previous
rounds of the tournament.
Miss Sheetz also announced that
the public is invited to attend the
games, which climax the interhouse
softball competition for the year.
In case of rain, either day, the game
will be played the following day at
the scheduled time.

ma started on the track that ended
in the glory of his present success.
In 1935, the door to the bigtime
opened for the trumpeter when a
group of radio stars, who wanted a
spot to jam when they wished, asked
Prima to open the Famous Door in
New York. The movies beckoned next,
and Prima teamed with Martha Raye
in "Rhythm on the Range."
Realizing the uphill fight ahead
against the already established
mighties of the band world, Prima
resolved to provide something dif-
ferent in bandstand entertainment.
Capitalizing on a gravel voice, par-
tially the result of a tonsilectomy,
and *a natural instinct for shen-
nanigans, Prima fronts his 15 piece
dance orchestra with sock show-
manship.
Lilyann Carol, songstress of "I
Wanna Get Married" fame, joined the
ccmlination in 4941 and has been
with the organization ever since.
"RobinhHood," "Angeline," "You
Won't Be Satisfied," and'"Please
No Squeeza Da Banana" are some of
the tunes which Prima has made fa-
mous, all of iwhich will be on the
agenda Friday. The hit "Be Happy"
was adopted as a slogan and gener-
al order of the day for the band
shortly after Prima wrote it.
All students, regardless of class,
may purchase tickets for the gala
ball from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. to-
morow through Friday at the Un-
ion, League, and on the Diagonal.
Identification cards must be pre-
sented to purchase all tickets.
"We came, we saw, we conquered"
is the thehie which will dominate
the ball, and was chosen as appropri-
ate to represent the seniors' four
years of accomplishment. Programs
will take the form of military dis-
charge papers, and decorations will
follow the dominant theme.
Tables for conversation and re-
freshments will be provided on an
outdoor terrace. Special lighting
and decorations will convert Fer-
ry Field into a nightclub under
the stars for the event.
Departing from usual custom, Sen-
ior Ball will be semiformal, owing
to the scarcity of men's formal attire,
but Dick Ford, co-chairman of the
affair, urges all men who own dinner
jakets to wear them.
Women have been granted 2:30
a.m. permission for Friday.

LOUIS PRIMA-Master showman and trumpeter, will front his band
at the 1946 Senior Ball from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday at the Intramural
Building. Lilyann Carol will take the vocal honors.

Old and new members of Scroll
will meet at 5 p.m. tomorrow at
the League for the Scroll Supper.

By LOIS KELSO
"HE STAID OLD SENIOIRS, members of the class of '46, are about to leave
us. Let us pause a while to salute these individuals, for they have look-
ed upon strange things.
They have seen the University of Michigan change from an insti-
tution "clinging inexcusably to moss-backed tradition" to a vital, pro-
gressive, far-seeing organization which gets results. I hope they have
all noticed this. They must have known it was coming, because when
they arrived on campus everyone who could make them hold still long
enough told them it was going to happen.
With its own ineffable efficiency, The Daily took the lead in explaining
what changes were necessary. The sports editor explained in ten inches of
punchy prose how PEM would help win the war. Six members of the edi-
torial staff joined in admiring the methods of Henry Kaiser and deploring
the fact that they were not used at the university. (The V-12 was yet to
come.)
,SOMEONE CALLED UMP told the incoming class of '46 about a few of the
less moss-covered traditions which "lend a strain of unity to a cosmo-
politan campus." Freshmen were not to smoke pipes on campus. No one
was to walk on the grass. No one was to cut classes, and above all no one
was to call fraternities "frats," perish forbid. Even some of these cardinal
principles seem to have been swept away in the Michigan student's drive
for greater efficiency.
With enthusiastic zeal the student body plunged into a program of
readjustment to a changing world. The editorial staff of The Daily as
one man volunteered to allot ten per cent of their miniscule salaries to
Victory Bonds, as they were then called. League Council abolished
JGPlay and Soph Cabaret. The Craighead twins started a course in
jungle fighting.
HE SEMESTERS slipped by as the class of '46 continued to readjust.
The manpower shortage ceased to be a joke, and the USO became the
last resort for the desperate. There was serious consideration of an enforced
lights-out program. The Gargoyle disappeared under a wave of high serious-
ness and financial embarrassment. Various "liberal" organizations jolted
through many changes of name, officers, and Causes, but never color.
The class of '46, sadder and wiser, is escaping now -- two jumps
ahead of the Era of Moral Indignation which seems to be upon us. They
have borne much, and I like to think that their time was not entirely
wasted. I have an ucquaintance who tells us when it is going to rain.
She looks out of the window and sees cold fronts coming.
