O t ti ue
CAMPUS SOCIAL EVENTS turn all eyes springward this week-end
as multitudes of formals, picnics, hayrides and novelty parties
enter the limelight.
Sigma Alpha Mu will celebrate its twenty-fifth anniversary on
campus. The group will have dinner in the League today and
will then proceed to the ballroom where they will dance to the
music of Phil Brestoff. A picnic at the Island will follow ,tomorrow
with the actives challenging the alumni to a baseball game,
Both Alpha Xi Delta and Delta Zeta sororities have planned
their annual "Rose Formals" for this week-end. They are spring
dances held in honor of the new initiates. The former is having
dinner at the Union, and then returning to the house to dance
to the music of Johnny Harberd. The Delta Zetas will serve dinner
at the sorority and have chosen maestro Art Starr and his
sextette for music.
An overflow crowd is expected at the Fresh Air Camp both today
and tomorrow. Wenley and Williams houses have planned a picnic
for tomorrow with all the trimmings. Entertainment will be provided
in the form of ballgames, canoeing and swimming-if the weather
Greene house will be present with their "Fire Fly Fling," a strictly
informal hard times party. Approximately 50 couples will travel to
the camp in a hay truck for an evening packed with fun. Michigan
house will join the brigade also.
A LIVELY CIRCUS atmosphere will flow through the halls of Helen
Newberry Residence today at their spring formal. The coeds are
creating the "big top" theme by means of a tent effect in the main
entrance hall, life-size circus characters decorating the walls and
caged animals. Al Chase will do his part as music-maker to add
to the liveliness of the affair.
The Theta Xi's have also transformed their front porch into,
the entrance of a circus tent, for their spring formal tomorrow.
Within, however, the theme is carried through mainly by way of a
very elaborate carousel, John Oakes and band are the "wild cats" that
will be in a cage surrounding the bandstand.
The Michigan Daily staff will have their annual picnic Sun-
day, 3:30 p.m., at the Island. Games, singing, weiners, and cokes
promise to provide an affair full of enjoyment for all. Portable
radios will undoubtedly be present; it would never do for the
sports staff to miss the ball scores.
The members of AK Psi are having a formal tomorrow in honor
of their pledges at the Washtenaw Country Club. There will be a
gathering at the fraternity house first where refreshments will be
served. After arriving at the country club guests will find themselves
transported to the "deep south," dancing to the music of Ken
Norman at "The Cotton Ball."
"THE BOWERY BALL," big party of the year for the Phi Sigma
Kappa fraternity, will be held tomorrow. It is an annual affair,
guaranteed to bring to life authentic bowery scenes. Guests will be
costumed to fit the theme. The band is a novelty five-piece combo
taken directly from the streets of Detroit expressly for the purpose.
Saline Valley Farms will be the scene of two picnic-parties given
today by Hayden house and tomorrow by Lloyd house. Fifty men
from Hayden and their "gals" will enjoy a hayride before arriving at
the farms for dancing and weiners. The Lloyd House affair is to
begin earlier in the day, and will include baseball, dancing, and
Alpha Sigma Phi will hold their annual "Sweetheart Formal
from 9 to midnight today in the Union Ballroom. The dance is
in honor of coeds pinned to fraternity members during this year.
Miniature beer mugs will be the favors, presented to each
couple. Dancing to the music of Doug Lent will take place
in a ballroom bedecked with the fraternity colors.
The girls of Alpha Phi are having a novel "Gay '90's Party" from
9 to midnight tomorrow. Sorority members are to play the part of
waitresses in a basement bar, and will also provide entertainment
typical of this era.
FOLLOWING DINNER at the Phi Tau house tomorrow, a pledge
formal will be given in the Hussey room of the League. Couples
will dance to the music of Doug Lent and his orchestra amidst decora-
tions evolving from the fraternity colors and symbol.
The members of Delta Tau Delta have planned their formal to
take place amidst night club surroundings. Refreshments will be
served at the house before the dance, which will last from 9 p.m. until
midnight. The dates will receive favors in the form of combination
cigarette cases and compacts.

season just now, the foresters are
proving their undefeatable Bun-
yon spirit by going right ahead
with a venison roast tomorrow.
Men of the Foresters' Club,
dates, wives and children will all
partake in the affair to be held at
"Bald Acres," so dubbed by a stu-
dent for obvious reasons, the farm
of Prof. Shirley Allen. Private
transportation will be furnished
for members going to and from the
farm situated about twenty-three
miles from Ann Arbor.
The day will consist of a field
day with stunts, chopping and
sawing contests, and three-legged
races, beginning at 1 p.m. and
lasting till such a time as rain,
weariness or hours may chase the
foresters home. Venison, roasted
in a barbeque pit, will be served
with soft drinks to make the day
Incidentally, it's all legal, too,
for the foresters are getting the
