Michifish Will Demonstrate
Fancy Feats at 'Open House'

Michifish, women's water bal-
let group, will be one of the out-
standing features of the Union
"Open House" which will begin at
1 p.m. Saturday, March 5.
The Michifish are scheduled to
perform their precision swimming
routines at 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.
The swimming group is composed
of forty aquatic minded coeds
under the direction of Libby Rens-
ford, their president. For their
"Open House" appearances the
Michifish will feature many group,
trio, and duet numbers, doing
front and back porpoises, water
lily formations, kips, ballet legs,
and front and back somersaults.

ONE OF THE many outstanding
League Needs
Coed Ushers
Whether coeds are needed to
usher in Lydia Mendelssohn Thea-
tre or are requested to read to the
patients at the University Hospi-
tal, it is the job of theP Personnel
Committee of the Women's League
to find the girls to fill the request.
THE COMMITTEE sent girls to
help the fraternity council at the
student Book Exchange. Coeds
also helped during the recent
WSSF campus drive.

of strokes in executing their bal-
let routines in exact rhythm and
formation. The ballet program is

The Michifish are under the
sponsorship of W.A.A. as- are
seven other exhibitions which
will also be presented at the
"Open House." Ping pong and
bowling will be two of-the-other
seven exhibitions planned for
the event.
The Michigan Union "Open
House" is held annually to better
acquaint the students and the.
public with the facilities the Un-
ion offers. Most of the activities
are limited to men students during
the year, but during the "Open
House" women students are espe-
cially invited to inspect and use
these facilities.
Spectators desiring diverIAy
from the shows and exhibitions
will have an opportunity to dance
to the music of Del Elliot and his
orchestra. Refreshments will be
on sale throughout the afternoon.
As a climax to the open house,
there will be a dance to the music
of Frank Tinker's orchestra from,
9 p.m. to midnight in the Union
Hal Sperlich is chairman of the

It has taken several long weeks to bring financial conditions up to
par in campus living quarters after an all-out J-Hop week-end, but
the grade's been made and this week-end novelty parties mount high
on the social calendar.
As couples travel the front walk to the Acacia house, decked out
in their best ship-wrecked costumes, a spot light will call their
attention to a rubber life raft complete with paddles.
DEEP-SEA creatures fashioned by the brothers will decorate the
walls; sea-week draped nonchalantly from the chandaliers should
make them feel right at home. The ship's bar will serve root beer;
straight from the keg.
Record dancing in the good ship Acacia's Ballroom %ill aid
in keeping ship-wreckees' minds from dwelling on their unfor-
tunate state.
Triangle has a pledge formal slated for this evening. It will be a
bit out of the ordinary, however, since this pledge formal is to be given
by the pledges for the actives. Gardenias will be presented to the ac-
tives and corsags to their dates. The decoration theme--why, triangles,
of course!
DOUG LENT and his orchestra will do the musical honors. A
specially concocted "purple-passion" punch is on the menu.
Tan Delta Phi recovers from J-Hop doldrums this week-end
also, and will hold a formal from 9 p.m. to midnight dance tomor-
row at the Union. It is to be in honor of their newly initiated ac-
tives. National officers and prominent alumni will be in on the
happy doings. Musical entertainment will be provided by Dave
Wyse and his band.
For the past three days the Betas have been conscientiously not
shaving, believing that a four day growth of beard will give that final
touch to their hard-times party tomorrow evening. Everyone is urged
to concoct the most dilapidated costumes imaginable to be in keeping
with the theme.
BEFORE MEETING at the house the group will travel, en masse,
to the track meet to watch some of the brothers who are participating.
After returning to the house each "tramp" will be presented with a
small salomi and a bit of cheese to fill their empty pockets.
The interior will be far removed from its usual serene set-
ting with "Skid-Row" signs covering the walls and newspapers,
tin cans, bottles and cigarette butts littering the floor. The lady-
friends are requested to arrange their hair in the most repulsive
coiffure possible.
Tomorrow night the AK Psis will hold their second risk-a-disk
dance of the semester at the chapter house. Refreshments will include
the usual brand of varieties; decorations will follow a record shop
DELTA SIGMA DELTA'S annual Bowery Ball will be in full
swing come 9 p.m. tomorrow. Costumes of every design, size and shapc
will be seen amid a gay '90 atmosphere-cafe with swinging doors and
sawdusted floors.
Square dancing will hold the limelight at the Chi Phi "barn"
tomorrow. Newt Loken, fiddle in tow, will do the calling. Cokes,
doughnuts and hot cocoa will be served later in the Chi Phi's new
The Pi Lambda Phis have planned an exclusive Monte Carlo
gambling party for tonight. Special feature of the gambling tables
will be several huge, four feet in diameter, roulette wheels. Horse rac-
ing, via a wire recording made by the men themselves, will be another
of the more popular games.
PAPER MONEY will betsold to the participants; the proceeds
have been promised to charity. Two grand prizes are offered the
couple holding the most money at the end of the evening.
Hayden House and Strauss House hold a monopoly on the
Circle Seven Ranch in Ypsilanti this week-end. They have both
planned the same type of party-one to be held tonight, the other
tomorrow. If Old Man Weather favors ien it will be a sleighride,
if not a hayride.
Once at the ranch the parties will participate in square dancing
and ballroom dancing by courtesy of RCA and Columbia disks. Hot
dogs, chile, sandwiches, milk, coffee and cokes will provide energy re-
"From chapter house to haunted house," will be the cry of the
Lambda Chis tomorrow evening. Cobweb covered ceilings, coffin-en-
cased pledges, grotesque paintings, scorched legs dangling from the
fireplace and faces leering in the windows promise to frighten every-
one within an inch of their lives.
Everyone is invited to attend an open-house to be given by Couz-
ens Hall from 9 p.m. to midnight today. Entertainment in the way of
ping-pong, bridge and dancing, refreshments in abundance.
