Crease Bal. To Revive Ancient Feud
Between Law Students and Engineers
Law students will revive their
traditional rivalry with the engi-
neers when they present their an-
nual Crease Ball from 9 p.m. to 1
a.m. Friday at the Union.
Crease Ball, for many years, was
a source of irritation to the en-
gineers because, not only was it a
rival dance, but, from 1931 until
1942, it was given on the same
t as the engineer's Slide Rule
le feud began years ago when
the two balls were both given in
the same building. In 1927 the
lawyers aroused the anger of the
engineers by stealing the giant
slide rule which was to be the
main decoration for Slide Rule

tear gas bombs and managed to
cut the power box current, leaving
the lawyers in the dork.
In 1942 both sides decided
that the source of much conflict
migt be eliminated if they
would hold their balls on dif-
ferent nights. But the groundork
for rivalry had already been
laid. Even though the dances
are no longer held on the same
night nor in the same building,
the rivalry remains.
This year's Crease Ball will fea-
ture a satire on legal phrases. The
traditional "Law Review", which
has been distributed at the dance
in former years will be replaced
this year by a "Raw Review."

Foreign Students To Hold flnnual

For Odd Jobs
By EDTH TEWS
One o the busiest committees
on campus is the Personnel Com-
mittee of the League.
Although its chief project is to
supply ushers for the Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre, Mary Davidson,
committee chairman, said, it now
has many other important duties.
On University Day, sponsored
by the Union, it obtained women
to act as guides to the visiting
high school students. Coeds also
helped at the IFC Book Exchange.
HOSPITAL VOLUNTEERS, fur-
nished by the League, work four
hours a week. Coeds do odd jobs
for the nurses, clerical work, read
to patients, or entertain the chil-
dren in the wards.
The volunteers are trained at
the hospital and have preference
as to what work they do.
Usually at the campus drives,
the committee supplies women to
help with the buckets.

tival will be the League's next
big project. The quota of 14 ushers

THE TERRACE Room will bear
the atmosphere of an Old Euro-

of candlelight, cokes will be served
over checkered tablecloths.
This year marks the seventh
year the International Ball has
been held on the Michigan cam-
pus. The all-campus dance is
sponsored by the International
Students Association, with pro-
ceeds going to the Emergency
Fund for Foreign Students.
With 800 foreign students rep-
resenting fifty-two nations en-
rolled in the University, this im-
portant fund is heavily drawn
upon at all times, and because of
conditions abroad, is still more in
need of replenishment at the pres-

SINCE THESE students are pre-
dominantly men, a problem has
arisen over dates. There are not
enough foreign coeds on campus to
assure all the men of getting dates
for the ball.
Because of this situation, the
International Center is seeking
American women to attend the
A date bureau has been set up
at the Center where the men may
leave their names and vital sta-
tistics. Coke dates will then be ar-
ranged for get-acquainted ses-
sions at the Center or elsewhere

COEDS INTERESTED in at-
tending the Ball as guests of for-
eign students are urged to contact
the social chairman of their dorms
or call Mrs. Kathleen M. Mead at
3-1511, ex. 358.
These guests are invited to at-
tend the open-houses to be held
at the Center this week and
next. The dates of these parties
will be announced later.
To add to the color of the oc-
casion, dress will be semi-formal
or national costume.

EAGERLY ANTICIPATED by
all who plan to attend the Ball, is
the elaborate floorshow planned
for the intermission.
Joe Czesnakowicz of the Po-
lonia Club, popular emcee of last
week's E-Q Ball, will do a repeat
performance with new jokes at
the International Ball.
A touch of the tropical will be
provided by members of the Ha-
waii Club who will dance and sing
several songs. Those who will per-
form include Velma McWayne,
Heeny Yuen, Ray Lum, Allen Mau
and Linda Akutagawa.
