League for two nights every year
to present a varied program of
fun for the campus.

Soph Cab which will be present-
ed this year December 10 and 11
first became an annual project for
sophomore women in 1927. Two
years later, the name Soph Cab-
aret was adopted. In the begin-
ning, it always represented a cir-
cus theme, such as the "Bungling
Brothers Circus" in 1937. Later
the themes became different every
Past years have produced "Brass
Rail" with a gay nineties motif
and Monte Carlo, which was the
last Cabaret until 1944, because of
the war.
That year a music box theme
was used; since then fairy tales
and a Bohemian setting in. New
York's Greenwich Village have
served as central ideas. The theme
for the Cabaret this December is
being kept secret at present.
Although the floorshow tryouts
are being held first, this is only one
small part of Soph "Cab." In ad-

dition, there is a dance in the
League Ballroom, a mixer, card
games and booths selling favors
and refreshments. Women inter-
ested in working on committees
will be called together at a mass
meeting in October.
The success of Soph Cabaret!
depends on the support of every
eligible sophomore woman. In the
floorshow, there are many oppor-
tunities open for would-be ac-
tresses, dancers, and singers.
The members of the Central
Committee feel that this can be
the best Soph Cabaret ever pro-
duced, but only if everyone par-
The Michigan Union will re-
sume their regular weekly
dances from 9 p.m. to midnight
today and tomorrow in the Un-
ion Ballroom. Frank Tinker and
the traditional Union Band will
provide music for dancing.

As beach parties, golf games, extended holidays, seasonal jobs,
and yes-even summer school fade into the background, students are
once again looking forward to house parties, dances, football games,
gab sessions, and perhaps-studies.
This week-end record dances come to the foreground as enter-
tainment for those unlucky ones who are unable to attend our first
big "grid" affair. The Phi Sig's will do their dancing Friday night
from 9:00 p.m. to midnight amid a flourish of colors-primarily maize
and blue, with State's colors running a far-away second.
Theta Xi members have also planned a record dance -
their's to be held Saturday from 9:00 p.m. to midnight in the quiet of
their fraternity house. (And it may well be quiet since many of them
will be attending an alumni meeting at Purdue.)
But just to prove that this record dance idea is not completely
contagious the medical men of Phi Rho Sigma are going to an-
other extreme. Their party will be along a French casino theme,
and is to be held Saturday from 9:00 p.m. to midnight.
International intrigue and a world of mysticism will envelop all
who enter the doors of Phi Rho Saturday. The 'boys have gone to a
great deal of trouble to make this affair as authentic as possible; in
fact, two men who toured Europe this summer went to many such
places so that every detail could be remembered and brought back for
this occasion.
Oh, yes! We do have another record dance. The members of
Beta Theta Pi have one planned for Saturday evening from 9:00
p.m. to midnight. They say that it is not the official opening of
their social season but rather a little booster until they get started.
Williams House has planned a listening party Saturday from 2:30
to 5:30 p.m. and the girls from Mosher have been invited to share the
excitement guaranteed to be brought forth by our opening football
The Phi Chi's plan to add a little variation to their record
dance, which will be held Saturday from 9:00 p.m. to midnight, by
giving it a title-'Autum Leaves.' Knowing that, the guests may
not be surprised if a guest of above mentioned leaves swirl down
to greet them upon entering the house. The women will be pre-
sented with autumn leaf corsages.
Appropriate refreshments-apples, popcorn, fudge, cider, coffee
and doughnuts-will be served in abundance throughout the evening.
Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Hulett of Ann Arbor are among those who have
been invited to chaperone.

'New' Campus Casbah Will Open Today

The "new look," a new face and
a new band will confront dance-
goers at the re-opening of the
Campus Casbah from 9 to 12 p.m.
today and tomorrow in the Michi-
gan League Ballroom.
To that ravishing coed with the

newest of "new looks" will go a
coveted award, as yet unrevealed
by the Casbah committee. From
the dance floor six impartial male
judges will select a number of
women who are wearing the abso-
lute "latest" in fall fashion.

The new band will be headed by
that popular melody man, Art
Starr. Starr and his "quility"
boys have captured the campus
heart with their smooth danceable
