Is Annual Dance

is the theme chosen for the 1946
edition of the annual dance, sched-
uled from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday

Outdoor Night Club
An outdoor terrace will provide
tables for refreshments and conver-
sation. Decorations and lighting will
convert the terrace into a nightclub
under the stars for the event.
A wait Arrival
Following the dominant theme, pro-
grams will take the form of military
discharge papers. Ballroom decora-
tions will adhere to the idea of ac-
complishment, but exact plans will
not be revealed before the dance.
Departing from the custom of pre-
vious Senior Balls, this year's affair
will be semi-formal, owing to the
scarcity of male formal attire. "Men
who own dinner jackets are urged
to wear them since the ball is such
a big event. But the committee felt
that making the dance formal would
exclude persons who would like to
attend," Dick Ford, general co-chair-
Women attending the dance have
been granted 2:30 a.m. permission.
In line with University custom, no
corsages will be worn to Senior Ball.
KEY WOMEN'S ACTIVITIES--for 1946-47 will be headed by, left to right, Ellen Bill, president of Women's
League Ccuncil; Jean Brown, president of Women's Athletic Association; and Jean Louise Hole, president of
Women's Judiciary Council. These women were selec ted by a merit system of petitioning and interviewing
which was open to all eligible early this spring.
SINK OR SWIM:
Frantic Preparations for Final
Exam Week Seen on Campus
Of Daily Mai

"THE MAIL'S IN!" This seemingly
innocent phrase is enough to
send any Michigan coed dorm resi-
dent dashing to her mailbox with
her hopes high and an expectant look
on her face; for the arrival of the
mail is the big event of the day.
Nine o'clock finds a group of eager
coeds clustered around the office
while the mail is being sorted be-
hind a closed door. This sorting pro-
cess goes on for what seems hours,
and one begins to wonder just what
is so difficult about putting mail in
the right boxes. Many an anxious
coed glances at her watch as the
tower strikes nine and wonders if
she can possibly arrive late to class
again without incurring the wrath
of her prof. Finally, the interminable
waiting over, the door opens, and
the rush begins.
REACTIONS to the content of the
mailboxes are, needless to say,
varied. There are a few fortunate
souls who rush from the office waving
a handful of letters and squealing
with delight. Then there are those
who glance at their mailbox, a dark
hole among those filled with enve-
lopes, and murmur apologetically,
"Oh, well, I really didn't expect any-
thing today, anyway," at the same
time resolving to send for every free
sample offered just to avoid future
And there are some who eagerly
grasp the envelope protruding from
the box only to find a bank state-
ment which probably contains the
cheerful news that their account is
overdrawn, or perhaps draw forth a
postcard reminding them to make
an appointment with their academic
Yes, the arrival of -the mail is
quite an event-which reminds me,
it's almost nine-I wonder if the
mail's sorted yet?

Network broadcasting is no longer
a job for professionals, but now opens
worlds of opportunities to students
interested in radio.
Swarthmore, H a v e r f o r d, Bryn
Mawr, and the University of Penn-
sylvania, now on a permanent hook-
up, broadcast important lectures, de-
bates, music, and sports from stu-
dent run stations. These Eastern
Pennsylvania colleges and other cam-
pus stations at Harvard, Yale,
Princeton, Columbia, Brown, Wil-
liams, Cornell, Bucknell, University
of Virginia, Alabama, and Stephens
are members of the Intercollegiate
Broadcasting System (IBS).
Before the war, college stations
from Maine to California held broad-
casts which were confined to their
respective college campuses. Now,
through the IBS, college programs,
put on exclusively by students, can
be broadcast to many other colleges
The campus station at Columbia
first recognized the idea of the IBS
last spring. It is a non profit organi-
zation linking all college stations
which fulfill the requirements for
membership, and is administered
from its offices in New York City.

THE LONG-AWAITED moment
when University students will
have an opportunity to demonstrate
the amount of knowledge to which
they have been exposed during the
past semester is almost at hand-
final exam week.
The approach of this fateful per-
iod marks a change in the' lives
and habits of most students. They
abandon-all trivial and social pur-
suits in order to devote them-
selves to the pursuit of knowledge.
ONE OF THE MOST unmistakable
signs of exam week may be seen
on the Huron River. Hundreds of
canoes, packed with students, are
paddled down the river away from
civilization. These conscientious stu-
dents are attempting to get away
from the noise and distractions of
Ann Arbor, the better to concentrate
on their studies.

shorts and halters. who are study-
ing in the sun in order to be able
to see more clearly the words of
wisdom in their books.
AND THE local dens of iniquity
are jammed with unfortunate
students who have not been able to
find room to study in the library.
They have to find a table somewhere
on which to rest their books.
But when finals are over, Uni-
versity officials urge that students,
fatigued from extreme concentra-
tion, will return to their normal pur-
