Union To Sponsor


Talent Show

Intermission Entertainment Will Feature
Unknown Showmanship Saturday Nights

The Michigan Union has em-
barked upon a new project in the
form of a "Talent Show" for the
purpose- of seeking out incognito
The sole purpose of the Union
Student Relations Committee is
to find among the thousands of
students, not only those possessing
ability, but those who are also in-
terested in joining in the fun-
making )and having a good time.
)Each Saturday, the voluntary
contestants will be given a
chance to "exhibit their wares"
during the intermission of the
regular Union Dances. They will
be judged by the dancers them-
selves on the basis of the merit
of their performance.
The winner chosen from each
weekly show will be asked to reap-
pear in a big Variety show which
will be sponsored by the Union
next Spring.
Those judged best at the final

show will be given an opportunity
to travel to New York or Holly-
wood or other cities .o compete inj
nation-wide contests such as the
Horace Heidt or Arthur Godfrey
shows. The money obtained from
the variety show will be used to
finance these trips. The Union
will donate any excess funds to
the University Fresh Air Camp or
other University project.
It is hoped that summer jobs
and other vocational opportuni-
ties can be offered the partici-
pants through University Alum-
ni. It will also give these peo-
ple a chance to find good con-
tacts and make a name for him-
In the past, Union Dances have
been used to help students have a
good time and relax on weekends.
This year, however, the commit-
tee feels that something more can
be done. It will take the coopera-
tion of everyone, especially those
with ability-ability of any kind.
There is a tremendous amount of
talent on campus which should be
brought before the student body.
To do this, the Union has begun
these Talent Shows. Anyone in-
terested is urged to contact the
Student Relations Committee of
the Union. Students who have tal-
ent in the field of entertainment
could let all the students enjoy it
by coming out for the show.

Casbah To Star.
'Lorraine Joyce'
WXYZSin ger_
"Lorraine Joyce," former WXYZ
blues singer, will render her hot
and sultry stuff for the campus
casbah, which will enter its sixth
consecutive weekend from 9 to 12
p.m. today and tomorrow.
If "Haunted Heart," "Old Devil
Moon," or "Begin the Beguine" are
in the "shiver" category, they
promise to be even more so when
combined with "Lorraine's" talent,
according to Lois Steere, floor-
show chairman.
A second surprise for Casbah-1
goers may be the appearance of
campus "wow" gal, Adele Hager.
Miss Hager is now somewhere
between here and Virginia, but
if she hits Ann Arbor before the
weekend, the Casbah committee
assures her appearance as MC.
If she is on the scene, this '48
Michigan entertainer of great re-
nown will come forth with a few
songs and ditties in her own inimi-
table hillbilly fashion.
This year's Casbah decorations
are on the modernistic side, a big
jump from the oriental look of old,
with assymetrical checkerboards
dominating the scene.
Schmoos, too, have hit the Cas-
bah. These gay creatures will peek
over, under and through the
checks, so be careful.
Art Starr and his sextet will
hold sway again with their cus-
tom of request honoring for all
guests. If he is asked he'll play it.
Television will again be the add-
ed attraction in the Grand Rapids
Room, where listening and looking
pleasure will prevail.

Kn A ote
This weekend all houses throw wide their doors for alumni who
the "coming-back-home" once again to visit the scenes of their col-
lege days and to view the spectacular displays that always accompany
the Homecoming grid affair.
Tonight the engineers of Triangle accomplish a task the most en-
joyable way imaginable. They have talked their dates into donning
working clothes, the object, of course, being the erection of their
Homecoming display.
Similar to the traditional football game played every year on
Homecoming morning between the Phi Delts and SAE's will be the
annual game initiated this year between Triangle and the Tau Delts.
The men really give their "all" at these affairs which promise to be-
come an inseparable part of the yearly festivities.
* * * *
GAY TIMES will be shot from a double barreled gun this weekend
as Halloween capers also hit a peak. In almost a dozen houses couples
will be seen dunking for apples, popping corn and admiring comical
or eerie decorations. There will be lots of laughs and good down-to-
earth fun as the spirit of the season compels everyone to dismiss that
formal atmosphere.
Parties planned along these lines will be given by the Theta
Delts, AKK's, Psi U's, Phi Chis, ZBT's, Sammies, Phi Delts, SAE's
and Trigon.
Anything red and fiery will go over with a bang at the ATO's fire-
men's party tomorrow night. Everyone is asked to dress as appro-
priately as possible. Preceding this blast of color a buffet dinner, par-
ticularly for the alumni, will be served at the house.
* * * *
THE MEN OF ACACIA will carry the theme of their Homecoming
display throughout the house tomorrow evening when they have their
autumn dance. Intermission performance will be put on as usual by
the Acacia Little Theatre group.
Each house may have different ideas on how to make these
next two days unforgettable for friends and alumni, but they are
giving "their all" in the effort. Through various types of decora-
tions-all along the gridiron theme-living rooms and recreation
halls will be transformed into football fields and festive ballrooms.
Houses entertaining along these lines are Pi Lambda Phi, Phi
Gamma Delta, Theta Chi, Beta Theta Pi, Chi Phi, Delta Tau Delta
and Sigma Phi Epsilon.
IN KEEPING with the festivities, but along a slightly different
line will be the Zeta Psi party. It is called Mississippi Steamboat
Dance, and ties in with their Homecoming display. Jimmy Servis and
his band will give forth with the music; intermission time is to feature
a repertoire of songs by the Zeta Quartet.
The members of Zeta Tau Alpha are to be congratulated;
they are celebrating their golden anniversary tomorrow night.
Following the game is an open.house and buffet dinner for all
friends and alumni. A dance that evening will conclude the
day's celebration.
Tonight the rooms of the Tau Delta Phi house will be made
over into a speakeasy. They figure that the theme will do much to
make gay times reach a new high. Walls of the rooms will be deco-
rated with advertisements in keeping with the theme.
This weekend Theta Xi is expecting several hundred alumni from
all parts of the country to storm their house. The men report that
they have been going insane trying to acquire football tickets, for
those in need.
Tomorrow evening the Theta Xis will have Cliff Hoff and his or-
chestra, the old Tom McVale band, playing for their Halloween Dance.
