Bluebook Ball Will Provide
Relief from Exam Worries

Campus Rules Are Clarified
By Women's Judiciary Council

Twice a year when final exam-
inations are close at hand the
Union holds its traditional Blue-
book Ball; this semester the dance
is being held from 9 p.m. to mid-
Panhei To Hold
Meeting Today.
For Rushees
Panhellenc Association will hold
a brief compulsory meeting for all
prospective rushees for the spring
semester at 8 p.m. today in Rack-
ham Amphitheatre.
"Attitudes Toward Rushing,"
will be the topic of a short talk by
Mary Stierer, president of Panhel-
lenic Association. She will ex-
plain Panhellenic and its relation-
ship toward rushing. The attitude
of the sorority and the rushee will
be discussed also.
Christine Blair, rushing secre-
tary of Panhellenic, will explain
details of the Michigan rushing
system. Contact rules will be ex-
plained, and eligibility rules clari-
fied so that there will be no ques-
tion as to what will be required at
rushing registration. Miss Ethel
MacCormick, social director of the
League, will also speak.
Rushing handbooks will be
distributed to all those present
at the meeting. All prospective
rushees wo are unable to attend
the meeting are asked to pick
up handbooks in the Under-
graduate Office of the League.
This handbook has been pre-
pared so that coeds may under-
stand the rushing system more
fully. Any questions which are not
answered by this booklet will be
discussed at the next meeting, ac-
cording to Miss Stierer..
The second and final meeting
for rushees will be held at 8 p.m. ,
Wednesday, Feb. 9, in Rackham
Amphitheatre. Details of the
rushing schedule, and clothes for
the parties will be discussed.
Money Well Spent

governmental investments on re-

night Saturday in the Union Ball-
Some may ask, "Why such a
gay affair at such a 'blue'' time?"
The Union Council believes that
students require and deserve re-
lief from long study hours and
shattered nerves. A few hours re-
laxation on the dance floor should
be the perfect remedy.
* * *
DECORATIONS will follow the
usual theme with a huge blue-
book placed strategically above
the bandstand. Walls of the ball-
room will be covered with replicas
of the traditional classroom black-
Smaller bluebooks, like good
or bad omens, will be hung
across the ceiling from white
crepe-paper streamers. Prize
quotations and courses only
dreamed of in college curricu-
lums will be captioned on their
Coeds will receive miniatureE
bluebooks for favors. This custom
has been observed for many years
and has now become tradition, as
has the dance itself.
* *.*
AN ADDED attraction at inter-
mission time will be the distribu-
tion of prizes. The lucky indivi-
duals whose bluebooks carry the
big letter "A" and those whose
grades are way down in the cellar
will be rewarded.
Frank Tinker and his Union
orchestra will provide the neces-
sary music to keep dancers on
their toes and carry thoughts
into realms other than those of
study. Those familiar with Tin-
ker's style will have no doubt
of his capacities in either direc-
Tickets for the affair will be
the same price as those for the
usual weekend Union dances.
General chairman of the dance
is Ted. Smith. Assisting him will
be Irv Barill, Richard Cossitt,
Robert Graham, Robert Greager
and William Race.

the thing.
Persons submitting the first
five correct answers will each
receive silver dollars: Answers

Two clarifications have beent
added to the Campus and House
Regulations Rule Book, according
to Pat 11annegan, president of
Women's Judiciary Council.
The additions state that closing
hours shall continue in effect1
until the house is officially opened
in the morning and that make-up
time may be deducted from the
12:30 a.m. closing hour only. Both
regulations have long been as-
sumed, but they have never been
included in the rule book.
The procedure for passing any
such rules requires a three-fourths
vote of the League Council, three-x
fourths vote of the Assemblyt
Board, three-fourths vote of Pan-c
hellenic Board, three-fourths votek
\of the House Presidents and the
approval of Judiciary Council and
the Dean of Women.

orary society, the dance has be-
