Foreign Students Will Present
Annual International Ball Friday

The International Student As-
sociation will play host to Uni-
versity students and faculty at
the sixth annual International
Ball which will be held from 9
p.m. to 1 a. m. Friday in the Un-
ion Ballroom.
Foreign students are to wear
the costumes of their native lands.
American students are also asked
to wear costumes, but those who
do not wish to, may go semi-for-
mal, according to Marcus Crap-
sey, chairman.
Music, for the ball will be pro-
vided by Frank Tinker and his
orchestra and Ramon Cerda's
rhumba band, a feature at the
Latin Quarter in Detroit. Cerda
is famous for his distinctive ren-
dition of Latin American tunes.
Varied Entertainment Planned
Intermission entertainment will
be given by the foreign students
and special entertainers. A quar-
tet will sing several French stu-
dent songs. A Turk will give a
folk dance from the days of the
old Sultans. Roberto Gordillo
from Mexico will play the ma-
rimba. Anna Vallone, former
singer with the San Carlo Opera,
will sing several Italian folk
songs. A modern ballet on a South
American theme will be per-
formed by Joanne Ellis.
Decorations for this dance are
being especially designed by a
well-known Eastern firm. The

theme wil be "One Universe." Fo-
cal point of the ballroom will be
a large revolving globe surround-
ed by saturn rings which will be
suspended above the bandstand.
Blue and- silver will be the color
scheme for the decorations.
Proceeds To Foreign Students
For many years the Interna-
tional Ball has been the main
source for replenishment of the
Emergency Fund for Foreign Stu-
dents, which is used to help stu-
dents in financial difficulties. The
fund provided in the past has
made it possible for a number of
students to remain in school.
Marcus Crapsey is chairman of
International Ball. On his com-
mittee are Madhat Hashimi, dec-
orations; Eddie Kozera, publicity;
William Correa, patrons and
Joanne Ellis, tickets.
Tickets for the dance may be
obtained at the International
Center and University Hall during
the coming week.
