One could almost say that this weekend will be one of the most
"formal" in the history of Ann Arbor; it seems that three out of four
houses will be holding their annual spring dances.
The men of Lloyd House have planned their traditional "Candle-
dine" for tomorrow evening. It is a semi-formal dinner-dance which
has been held every spring since 1946. This year the event will be held
at the Komo Katering Klub, beginning with a fried chicken banquet at
7 p.m Dancing will begin at 9 p.m. to the music of Bill Henline's or-
During intermission the traditional announcing of engagements of
present and former Lloyd men will be made. A yellow and blue theme
will be used for table decorations, and, as might be expected, the group
will dine by candle light.
ACACIA'S SPRING formal will take place tomorrow evening in
the midst of a "Magnolia Mood". Their porch will be., transformed into
one of the Southern colonial era. Within, a simulated magnolia tree
will hold a place of honor, and should feel much at home in the pres-
ence of a large confederate flag.
An elegant dinner of Virginia baked ham and candied yams at
the Stage .Coach Inn will precede the dance. Charlie Rivers' or-
chestra will provide music for dancing. Favors for the women will
take the form of miniature evening bags and white and tea rose
The Delta Gammas will hold their pledge formal tonight with the
Up-Town Five doing the musical honors. Meanwhile, the Pi Phis will
also be honoring their pledges at a formal dinner-dance. Here, danc-
ing will be to the music of Johnny Harbred. 1

MEMBERS OF Theta Xi and their dates will do their dancing in-
doors and without in a spring atmosphere. Entering through a trellis
intertwined with artificial flowers, couples will find the living room
transformed into a spring arbor of magnolia trees. In the library, a
flower-bedecked pool will be a restful drawing card for those who
weary of dancing, which will be under the baton of Hugh Jackson.
Delta Chi's "White Carnation Ball" will be held at the chapter
house from 9 p.m. until midnight tomorrow. Heaven help the gal
who's allergic to the beautiful little flower, for the house will be
overflowing with them.
The AO Pi's pledge formal will be held from 9 p.m. to midnight
tomorrow in .the Hussey Room of the League. The girls have selected
Ken Norman's orchestra to play for dancing.
THE SAMMIES are planning a party with a new slant tomorrow
evening. They call it their "Childhood Sweetheart Party". The men
will find themselves back in short pants again, while the girls will have
a chance to drag out some of their ancient cottons.
The "kiddies" will be well supplied with all day suckers while
engaged in creative play in sand boxes and on blackboards. Prizes
will be given for such long-forgotten games as "Pass the Orange
Under the Neck" and "Musical Chairs".
The Phi Delts are also traveling a bit from the beaten path with
their annual "Hobo Hobble" tomorrow night. Naturally, hobo
clothes will be in order. The chapter house will become an old Missis-
sippi river boat complete with boiler room, captain's cabin and the
ROMANCE FROM the days of the Arabian's-of-yore will perme-
ate the Sig Ep's abode tomorrow evening. A canopy will shelter the
entrance, while within, red and gold cushions and draperies will pro-
nounce the Arabic. Prizes will be awarded for costumes that best suit
the mood of the evening.
Alpha Gamma Delta's pirate party tomorrow night should
hold much fun in store. Guests must walk the plank to enter the
remains of their shipwrecked domain. Each room will take on the
appearance of the various ship's quarters. Last Wednesday the
girls entrusted several "pirate" pledges with parchment-scroll in-
vitations to be delivered to the men guests.
At 2 p.m. tomorrow the Delts and their favorite "baseball players"
will head for the Arboretum for a day of fun. They've planned a steak
roast for their evening meal. Campfire singing will follow.
* * * *
RU1IMSEY AND ADAMS Houses will be guests at the Circle 7
Ranch tomorrow evening. Hay riding trucks will pick up the clan at
7:30 p.m. Square dancers will be in their glory after reaching the
ranch which also affords many outdoor pleasures.
And still we have more formals, as the Chi O's honor their
pledges with dinner at the Union and dancing at the chapter
house to the music of Dick Peters.
Ed Klum and his orchestra will play at the Sigma Nu annual
spring pledge formal. Preceding the dance there will be dinner at the
house for the pledges and their dates.

The Alpha Sigma Phi's "Sweetheart Formal" vill take place from
9 p.m. until midnight at the League. Doug Lent's orchestra will be on
hand to provide music. Gardenia and carnation corsages are to be pre-
sented to the women.
