Annual Military Ball Will Uphold
Traditional Pomp and Pagentry


This year's JG Play will be a
satire on Michigan life, but in
keeping with tradition the ex-
act theme will be kept a secret.
leading parts will be taken by
Marilyn Scheel, Audrey Buttery
and Ruth Mollnow.
The script was planned by the
central committee and written by
Martha Delano. Mary Alice Chen-
ey wrote the lyrics, and Virginia
Coffin composed the music. Pat
Hannagan is general chairman,
and Pat McKenna is director of
the play.
The committee heads include
Nat Elliot in charge of costumes
and ,Pat Baumgarten, music.
Junior Girl's Play has been pre-
sented annually since 1904 in hon-
or of senior women. The play was
not open to men until 1923, when
it was staged at the Whitney The-
atre. Early plays were written by
graduate students, alumni, and
"The Best Years" staged, direct-
ed and produced by junior women
in '47 was hailed a success not
only by the campus but by na-
tional critics.

This Friday will bring forth an
all campus ball that is literally
seething with pomp, ceremony and
glowing tradition.
The first Military Ball was pre-
sented in 1918. The ROTC and
NROTC will jointly present this
year's ball from 9 p.m. to 1 p.m.
Friday. That first year. at the
climax of the first World War, the
military students stepped out with
a social event that has continued
to maintain all the pomp and dig-
nity of dances in the regular army.
Always a part of the affair
has been the drill team which
performs on the ballroom floor
for the guests. This year the
reorganized "Pershing Rifles"
will present an impressive silent
manual movement and platoon
drill during the intermission.
The archives on previous mili-
tary balls reveal pageantry and
excitement topping the campus
functions of the years.
In 1922 the brilliance of the
ball was reflected in the variety
of uniforms for there were rep-
resentatives from many foreign
countries whose officers were
studying here at the time. At
that time the music was broad-
cast for the first time from any
college dance of any university.
The peak of dance entertain-
ment was reached when a military
ball of past years held a mock air
raid. At midnight a dirigible cross-
ed the darkened ballroom followed
by squadrons of planes and illum-
inated by searchlights. The air-
craft was exploded at the appro-
priate moment just before reach-
ing the other side.

BANDLEADER-Bob Strong will
play at Militay Ball.


Another year an electrically
lighted wall depicting a battle-
ground in France was erected
over the bandstand. When the
lights went out, the mural dis-
appeared and was replaced by a
tall figure of the Goddess of
Peace in luminous paint.
The decorations for this twenty-
eighth annual Military Ball are as
yet unrevealed but promise to
break all precedents set in the

New Look for Men Descr ibed by Esquire

OEDS, does your man have the
"bold look?" No, not the eag-
er look, but the "bold look."
In order to be in style this
spring, men should follow the
"new look" for the opposite sex,
the "bold look," as described by
Esquire Magazine and featured
in Ann Arbor haberdasheries.
THE "BOLD LOOK," said to be
the most significant style trend
to appear in men's apparel since
World War I, is an outgrowth
of the movements which popular-
ized the Windsor knot, the huge
triangle knot worn by professors
and Englishmen at racetracks.
This new trend is neither faddish
nor foolish, but completely Amer-


ican and wholly masculine. It is
a reflection of the rugged good
taste and innate self-confidence
that characterize the well-groom-
ed American man whether: he is
in Omaha, Oshkosh, Ann: Arbor,
or Anchorage, Alaska.
Some of the characteristics of
this cominvg fashion may be seen
in the first new shirt style "n year-s.
The shirt is made with a "com-
mand" collar, similiar to those
worn by Frankie S. and Viccie D.,
which features bold stitching one
half inch from the edge. It has
widespread tabs designed for wear
with either a Windsor or' a bow
tie. As an additional feature the
shirt has an extra wide, dashing
pleat down the front. Other easily

noted changes include bigger, easi-
er to finger buttons and longer,
wider French cuffs.
NECKTIE DESIGNS will follow,
the trend by having wider
stripes, polkier polka dots and
more widely spaced. dashing fig-
ures. There is a Bold Look hat
too, a snap-brim in one color of
felt with a second color for theE
band and a third shade for theI
brim binding-just like a rainbow.,
The trend in footwear will be
towards socks with wider ribbing
and broader clocks. Shoes will
have a sturdy, massive, masculine
appearance, added by extended
heels and thicker soles.
rfo COMPLETE the Bold Look,
men should carry one of the
new handkerchiefs, which have
a border stitched fully an inch
and three-eighths from the edge.
As anyone can see, the char-
acteristics of the new trend show,
that the Bold Look was designed
for the American man rebeling
from a uniformed existence, who,
as a member of the greatest coun-
try in the world, is today playing
a major role in the world and
wants to look the part. Here's to
more men with the Bold Look-
