The first Military Ball was held
in 1918, when the ROTC band
and "Ike's Jazziest" seven-piece
orchestra provided music.
AT ONE TIME, sentries were
posted at the entrance and the
patron's box. A formal color guard ..
changed at 15-minute intervals,
and at intermission,. a crack drill
team performed silent drill.
Another year, the decorations 'b"i
featured a miniature pontoon
bridge into the ballroom, with
the band sitting behind a mock
trench. The first college dance
ever to be broadcast was the
1922 Military Ball.
For many years, the dance
ranked with J-Hop as one of the z
two most important formals on
campus. It has always promised ri
an evening of good music with all
the pomp and dignity of the mili-

the state of Michigan in a na-
tional vocal contest last spring.

clude participation in the Gilbert
and Sullivan Association and the

The "telephone man" is mighty busy these days!
Since the war, among many other things, he has built
or enlarged 2,800 buildings.. . scores of them large
enough to fit into the skyline of a modern metropolis.
These buildings are more than brick, mortar and tele-
'phone equipment. They are jobs for thousands of men
and women . . . more and better telephone service for
millions of people . . . more business for the towns and
cities in which they are located.
But most important of all, they are an indication of
the Bell System's earnest efforts to keep up with the
nation's ever growing needs for communications service,
