Outdoor

Tennis Ball'

n.

WAA and the Union hope to
combine nature's outdoor ballroom
with the best in campus bands and
entertainment at the "Tennis
Ball," first outdoor all-campus
dance, to be held from 9 p.m. to
midnight Friday on the Palmer
Field Tennis Courts.
Natural effects will include the
usual combination of stars and
moonlight that watch over Palmer
Field, as well as balmy weather
now being requested by the dance's
central committee. However, if na-
ture refuses to cooperate with
chairmen Rosemarie Schoetz and
Bill Wise, the dance will be held
in Barbour Gym.
* * *
IM CLUB members will provide
refreshments for the dancers un-
der the stars in open air refresh-
ment booths. Patrons will be able
to sit at red-checked covered tables
under Japanese lanterns to watch
their favorite athletes whip up
their newest creation, a "Tennis
Ball Float."
Charlie Manning and his
Michiganaires will assume the
Palmer Field bandstand and
will begin their dance music
with the premier of their origi-
nal theme song, "The Michigan
Air."
*g* $
THE MICHIGANAiRES gave

the campus a sample of their new
"music, Michigan style," at 1 p.m.
yesterday on the Diag and were
enthusiastically received, accord-
ing to circulating campus com-
ment.
The intermission show, "Cam-
pus Highlights" will steal the
best from 48-49 first run cam-
pus events. JGP, Varsity Night,
Soph Cab, Gulantics Review,
Froggy Bottom, Frosh Frolic and
Union and League talent will
take over "between Matcles."
"For those who missed these at-
tractions and for those who saw
them and liked them, "Tennis
Ball" is a good place to see a re-
view of the cream of campus tal-
ent," claims Jerry Mehlman, pub-
licity chairman.
Tickets, priced at 50 cents, will
be on sale throughout the week at
the League and Union, but only a
limited number will be sold.
The dance, which is the first
dance held outdoors during regu-
lar school session will take the
place of Michigras, the annual gi-
gantic project of the combined
forces of the WAA and the Union,
during alternate years. A major
part of the funds this year will go
to the WAA swimming pool fund.
