Union-League Talent Committee Begins
Campus-Wide Search for Entertainers

Students may now sign up to
enter Winter Carnival, the all-
campus winter sports affair, to be
held Wednesday and Thursday,
Feb. 2 and 3.
Letters were recently sent out
to house presidents describing the
entire set-up for the carnival. The
letter also contained the three ma-
jor events and rules for entering
each one. Enclosed in each letter
was a postcard to be returned to
the central committee by Tuesday,
Dec. 14.
The committee requests that
each house specifies how many
people they expect from their
house in each event. If this is not
possible, houses are to specify
which events they plan to enter.
The main thing is to get the post-
cards returned on time.
THE CARNIVAL is divided into
three major divisions: the Arbo-
retum events, the ice carving con-
test and the Burns Park ice show.
There will be a meeting of
the Ice Carving Committtee for
representatives from each
house at 5 p.m. Wednesday at
the Union. The room will be
posted on the bulletin board.
It is very important that each
house be represented. Rules for
making the display will be ex-

The Arboretum events will be
divided into skiing and tobog-
ganning competition. Skiing
will consist of cross country
runs, skii jumping, slalom rac-
ing and novelty races. Under to-
bogganing will be three man
team competition, tray sliding
and also some novelty races.
These events will take plane
Wednesday afternoon, Feb. 2.
Ice Carving will be run on a
similar basis as the Homecoming
displays. A limited amount of
money is to be spent on the con-
struction. Full instructions on
how to go about building the dis-
play is explained in the letter.
Each house can choose its own
theme. The displays will be judged
at 10 a.m. Thursday morning on
originality and construction.
THE ICE SHOW will be held
Thursday afternoon at Burns
Park and Thursday night at the
Coliseum. The events to be entered
at Burns Park include short dash,
one lap race, four lap race and
house relays. "Crazy Relays" and
figure skating will be on the pro-
gram at the Coliseum.
If anyone has any questions
concerning any part of Winter
Carnival, they are asked to get in
touch with Pat McKenna, 2-2569;
Nancy Hess, 2-5618 or Dick S-
cum, 4141.

"Talent, available, on file"; so
reads the notebook of the latest
campus organization, the Union-
League Talent Committee.
Under Bob Perrin. and Jackie
Reid this group will start the ball
rolling for the establishment of
continuous campus-talent file at
7:30 p.m. today in the Union when
representatives from all campus
organizations will meet to begin a
campus-wide talent search.
initiated by the committee, indi-
viduals or groups with talent or
an organized performance may
sign from 3 to 5 p.m. daily in the
Union for an audition with the
committee floorshow chairman.
From these auditions will be
picked floorshows for subsequent
And from these floorshows
will eminate the talent file,
which will be available to all or-
ganizations, both on and off
campus. Such groups as JGP,
Soph Cabaret, and Gilbert and
Sullivan may spot just what
they need in the file, whether he
be a ballet dancer or zither play-
Private groups may search
through the files for entertainers
or perhaps a guest or two to be the
"life of the party." Private and
public organization in Ann Ar-

bor, Detroit and the surrounding
area will no longer need to send
special scouts to recruit talent.
nitely scheduled, of these campus'
talent scouts will be the spring va-
riety show, sponsored by the
League, Union and the Glee Clubs.
Top performers and entertain-
ers groups from the. Union floor-

shows will be picked to appear at
this affair, scheduled for April 25
which will award over 100 dollars
cash in prizes.
Chairmen Reid and Perrin
encourage groups to pick their
talent and send them over to the
Union. "Anything from catcalls
to organ playing will be ap-
preciated if it is done well," say
the chairmen.
