room atmosphere, law students
will present their annual Crease
Ball from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. tonight.
The lawyers, in true legal fash-
ion, have served summonses on
their dates, ordering them to ap-
pear at Crease Ball. The theme of
the semi-formal dance will center
around a satire of legal practices.
The theme will carry out a mate-
rialized play on law terms.
Crease Ball has a long, tradi-
tion-filled history, much of which

is based on the long-standing ri-
valry between the lawyers and the
engineers, who sponsor Slide Rule

Tinker's Union orchestra.
Women attending the dance
will be granted 1:30 a.m. permis-
sion. No corsages are to be worn.

from home-with no after-dinner dishes!
If one should see such strange sights as zebra-painted horses,
rainbow-colored goats, French poodles or baby alligators being led
across the threshold of the Sigma Chi house tomorrow night they
won't need a second guess to know that the Sig Brothers Circus
has come to town.
CANDY COTTON MACHINES, popcorn and candy-apple booths
will be tucked into various corners of the "Big Top." Sideshows,
including a magician act, a burlesque show, the tall man and the
fat man, complete with barkers, will add to the constant din.
Guests will come dressed as "kiddies" and the most ingenious
costume will gain its owner a real, live, baby alligator. Losers of
this cuddly prize may drown their sorrows in pink lemonade.
