Annual Event
Junior Girls Play has been pre-

or of graduating women. It was
first staged in Sarah Caswell An-
gell Hall in Barbour Gymnasium
and later in the Whitney Theatre

been given and at one time the
plays were very elaborate, some
having a week's run and perform-

For several years the plays were
written by graduate students,

BALANCING THE BOOKS-Members of the Capitalist Ball committee, who do this sort of thing
everyday in business administration school classes, happily dope it out that tickets sales, taxes, over-
head and miscellaneous expenditures will all add up to a good time tomorrow night. Seated from
left to right are Don Olson, Virginia Councell, Chairman Arthur Mack and Thomas Brewer. Stand-
ing are Ben Loveridge, Pat Woods and Ken herring.

"Manila Square,' a country-
style dance to benefit the Univer-
sity of the Philippines, will be
given from 9 p.m. to midnight,
Saturday, April 19 in Waterman
Proceeds from the dance, spon-
sored by the Joseph Ralston Hay-
den Memorial Library Commit-
tee, will go into a fund to rebuild
in the University of the Philip-
pines a library named after Jos-
eph Ralston Hayden, former pro-
fessor of political science at the
University of Michigan. The stu-
dent body here has adopted the
University of the Philippines as
the foreign university which it
will help to recover from the ef-
fects of war.
Tickets for the dance will go on
sale next week in the Union, the
League,xcampus bookstores and a
booth in University Hall.
Tim Doolittle and his band will
provide special numbers for square
dancing as well as music for so-
cial dancing. There will be three
regular dances and one square
dance in each set.
Doolittle and his band have been
featured over station WJR. He re-
cently played with great success
for a dance at Michigan State.
Women are requested to wear
peasant skirts and men to wear
blue jeans, fatigues, or other very
informal clothes to carry out the
country dance theme. Decora-
tions and programs will also be
designed to fit this theme.
Lynne Sperber, chairman, ex-
plained that the committee has de-
cided to give this type of dance
because there have been so many
formals lately.

To Be Gien
By West Quad
With a bow to Paris art stu-
dents, the men of West Quad-
rangle will present for the first
time on campus in many years, a
"Beaux Arts" costume ball from
9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday, April 18
in the Union Ballroom.
Tickets are on sale this week
through designated representa-
tives in each of the eight houses in
the Quad. Residents of several
other campus residence halls will
also attend the dance, as invita-
tions have been sent to Fletcher
and Vaughn houses.
Lee Stewart and his orchestra
will provide the music for the
dance, and will feature special ar-
rangements of "Stardust" and
"Anniversary Song."
Plans call for the decorations to
be the most unusual ever seen on
campus. Hundreds of balloons will
float from the ceiling to add to
the Parisian Fine Arts atmosphere.
This affair will give everyone a
chance to use his ingenuity in cre-
ating a costume, and the dance
committee has announced that
prizes will be awarded for the best
ones. Since the dance will not be
held until after spring vacation,
those who can not find inspiration
for costumes here can raid the
old trunks at home.

The official orchestra of the
Kentucky Derby for three consecu-
tive seasons, Jimmy Joy started as
a campus band at the University
of Texas and has since become one
of America's most popular dance
bands, including among their
proudest assignments the Texas
gubernatorial inauguration.
Sweet Style
The modern musical trend, ac-
cording to Jimmy Joy, is definitely
away from jitterbug music to a
somewhat sweeter style that still
retains the full ensemble and solid
rhythm qualities. Instrumenital
features of the "Dance with Joy"
orchestra include a sax section in
five part harmony and a vocal
trio, quartet, and quintette.
Traditionally sponsored by the
Business Administration students,
today's Capitalist Ball" will be the
first of its kind since 1941, ac-
cording to dance co-chairmen Don
Olson and Art Mack.
Women's Housing
Polity Announced
By Dean's Office
Mrs. Mary C. Bromage, Assist-
ant Dean of Women, recently an-
nounced the housing policy for
the fall term, 1947, regarding lo-
cal women students.
According to Mrs. Bromage,
due to the acute housing shortage
for women students it is neces-
sary to reserve all housing spaces
for women who do not have homes
in Ann Arbor or within reasonable
distance of Ann Arbor.
The housing shortage for the
fall of 1947 may make it necessary
to impose restrictions on the
number of women permitted to en-
roll. Therefore, dormitories, so-
rority houses, League Houses, co-
operative houses and any other ap-
proved living quarters will be as-
signed to non-local students, Mrs.
Bromage said.

It gets you-being there during those
interminable minutes before medical help ar-
rives. The suffering. The anxious waiting. The
intense, helpless desire to do something for
injured human beings.
Then-the feeling of relief as competent
hands take over!
Often it's the Red Cross first-bringing

gest cause of sudden death-accidents.
