Blackfoot Ball
Invades Campus
After advance notice to all campus in the form of Gargantua
size black footprints, the Alpha Tau Omegas will present their
annual formal, "Blackfoot Ball" from 9 to 12 p.m. Saturday in the
League Ballroom.
Special guests of the ATO's will be the Sigma Nu's, their tradi-
tional rivals since the days of the Civil War. The term "blackfoot"
was applied to the ATO's at Virginia Military Institute, where the

Instructors of Germanic Lan-
guages will be the honored guests
from " 4 to 5 p.m. today in the
Grand Rapids Room of the
eague.
Hostesses will be from Helen
Newberry and Pi Beta Phi.
Cokes and potato chips are
served free of charge over red-
checkered table-cloths by the
hostesses.
Besides talk of such things as
classes, recent elections and other
general topics, guests will have
an opportunity to play bridge and
ping-pong.
So-chairmen for the Student-
Faculty hours are Jean Heidgen
from Panhellenic and Helen Smith
from Assembly Association.
Conversation will probably be
carried on in a number of lan-
guages since the German lan-
guages include Russian and Scan-
dinavian tongues as well as Ger-
man.
Guests need not necessarily be
able to speak one of these lan-
guages, however, since the Stu-
ent-Faculty Hour is open to any-
one who wishes to attend.

-4)first chpater was founded in 1865
to differentiate the black-booted
group from the Sigma Nu's who
wore white boots with their uni-
forms.
TED SMITH and his orchestra
will supply the music for this an-
nual dance in a tropical atmo-
sphere supplied by palms, a gal-
axy of stars and a fullmoon. Be-
hind the bandstand will be a
mural of the traditional black feet
boiling in a cannibal pot, with
men in black as guards.
Flowers wlil be given to all
women present at the dance.

David Hoexter, Marwood Rupp,

feminine crew-cuts appearing on
the Diag.

East Quad Ball
East Quadrangle's Cosmopoli-
tan, semi-formal ball, "An Inter-
national Affair," will be held from
9 to 12 p.m. Saturday in the four
dormitory dining rooms.
Tickets are on sale for $3.30
to all EastaQuadrangle residents.
They can be purchased from
salesmen, whose names are post-
ed on house bulletin boards.
The men of East Quad will find
their home transformed into an
international wonderland Sat-
urday evening. Residents and their
guests will step from familiar Ann
Arbor streets into four new climes,
ranging from the tropics of Rio to
the frigid Arctic.
Their first stop will probably be
the snowy wastes of Iceland where
the Mack Ferguson Trio will pro-
vide music for the dancers.
Strains of Latin music, supplied
by Ken Norman and his orchestra,
will then draw them to the port
of Rio Baie, in other times recog-
nized as the Anderson-Strauss
dining hall.
If wanderlust urges Quad men
and their dates to travel on, they
will find an African jungle, which
they can explore to the rhythm
of Chuck Meyer's Orchestra, just
a few steps away.
To climax the evening they can
visit the exotic Orient, where Dave
Clark, Quad resident, will be fea-
tured in honkytonk piano solos.

Panhellenic Association has
voted by a three quarters major-
ity to withdraw the Activity Cup
awarded each year.
This award was given annually
on Installation Night to the sor-
ority which had accumulated the
highest number of activity points
during the preceding academic
year.
* * *
MARY STIERER, president of
Panhellenic, pointed out, "The
cancellation of the activity cup
does not mean that activities are
being re-emphasized. Panhellenic
feels that too much pressure has
been put on each coed when
houses are striving for more and
more activities to raise their total
number of activity points."
"Coeds often try to do too
much and many times go out
for a job for its point value
rather than for personal rea-
sons. This tends to fill many
committees with women who are
not really interested in what
they have undertaken."
"Too much competition of any
sort is harmful, whether in activ-
ities or athletics. One of the re-
sults can be a breakdown in Pan-
hellenic spirit. Activities should be
an individual, rather than a house
matter, therefore the individual
awards given at Installation Night

by Panhellenic are being re-
tained."
* * *
ACCORDING TO Miss Ethel
McCormick, social director of the
League, "one of the house's first
responsibilities is to develop in-
itiative and leadership. Abolish-
ing the award puts an emphasis
on individual rather than house
spirit."
"Some women who are shy or
lack initiative have to be urged
to enter activities. These same
coeds will become interested
once they have entered into the
activity, however."
Mary Carolyn Wright, chair-
man of Interviewing Committee,
which makes all League appoint-
ments, expressed her point of
view. "The withdrawal of the
Panhellenic Activities Cup may
reduce the number of girls who
will interview for League positions
but it will increase the applicants
who are truly interested in ac-
tivities.
"ACTIVITIES bring activity
points to a house, but the thing
that is so often overlooked is the
lasting effect of participation.
"College is a place where we
"grow up." By working with other
people we gain poise and learn or-
ganization. Many hidden poten-
tialities have been developed in
this way."

Since his return, Barron has

dancing public, he includes a few
