zations petitioning for space, Hal
Sperlich, booth co-chairman, said,

Even with the merging of organ-
izations for a single booth, we
still had to turn down a lot of fine
Sperlich explained that the
size of Yost Field House, where
the carnival will be held, lim-
ited the number of booths, and
also restricted the number of
show booths which could be ac-

A mass meeting for those fresh-
men and first semester sopho-
mores who are eligible for activi-
ties and interested in sophomore
League positions, is slated for 5
p.m. Thursday in the League.
The process of obtaining a Lea-
gue position, complicated and con-
fusing to most freshman women
and to many upperclassmen, has
been explained by Pat Reed in-,
terviewing chairman.
"IN ORDER to participate in
extra curricular activities at the
League," says Miss Reed, "it isl
necessary to write a petition ex-
plaining plans for the position
that is desired. This petition is
read by the interviewing commit-
tee and after a five minute inter-
view with each applicant, the
committee decides who will best
fulfill the duties of the position."
Petitions which will be due at
the Undergraduate Office of the
League by 5 p.m. March 22,
should include definite plans for.
the office and also any sugges-
tions or criticisms which might
improve the positions, accord-
ing to Miss Reed.
. Information concerning duties
of the offices and positions may
be obtained from the League Low-
down or accounts of the person
last in office which may be found
in the Presidents' Reports in the
League Library or Undergraduate
FOR FURTHER help in writing
petitions, old andsample peti-
tions are now on display in the
Undergraduate Office. The Inter-
viewing council, to answer ques-
tions concerning sophomore posi-
tions, will hold office hours from
2 to 5 p.m. March 16, 17, 20, 21
and 22.
In addition to the informa-
tion desired in a petition, the
interviewing committee requests
that a picture of the applicant
be attached to the petition.
When handing in a petition, the
applicant should sign for an in-
terview on a list posted on the
Undergraduate O f f i c e bulletin
Since all judiciary interviews are
held on the same day, it is neces-
sary to sign for a separate inter-
view if the candidate is petition-
ing for a judiciary position.

Senior Night
To Feature
A pin-up board motif will pre-
vail at the traditional Senior Night
activities, Thursday, March 23,
said Mary Ann Harris, general
Bulletin boards with actual sou-
venirs from events of the past four
years will decorate the walls of
the League Ballroom. A gigantic
pin-up board will be placed be-
hind the bandstand as a back-
ground for the skits which will
carry out the theme "Our Years
at Michigan, 1946-1950."
One of the many innovations of
this year's Senior Night is a mass
march to the League. Senior wo-
men will assemble and parade ac-
cording to their residential areas.
Caps and gowns will be worn to
the banquet which will be followed
by a number of skits.
"Skits will represent the changes
at Michigan from the hat and
briefcase days when we were
freshmen to the rah, rah of to-
day," Miss Harris stated.
After Senior Night festivities
the women will go into the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theater to see the
first performance of "The Real
McCoy," 1950 Junior Girls' Play.
When the play is over, senior
women will serenade the juniors
with an appropriate song written
to the tune of "Vote for Jennie,"
a song featured in last year's JGP.
Seniors may rent caps and
gowns at Moe's Sport Shop from
March 20 to 23. Special rates will
be given to coeds who are not

Party-goers got a taste of Pari-
sian life in an underworld cafe'
buried deep in a cavernous sewer
Saturday night at Phi Kappa
Tau's "Apache Brawl."
The famous dance is held each
year by Phi Tau chapters through-
out the country.
Guests were forced to descend
into the den of iniquity through
an open "sewer" via a ladder lead-
ing into the basement of the
S * *
ONCE INSIDE, entrance to the
dance floor was impeded by anoth-'
er narrow "sewer" opening.
Subdued French music invited
dancers to trip the light fan-
tastic in a room which resem-
bled a larger sewer. Chicken
wire lined with paper bricks
helped to create the necessary

illusion, while straw was scatter-
ed around the floor.
All windows were boarded up
and papered with various signs.
Street lamps were placed at stra-
tegic points.
A GAMBLING DEN was avail-
able for, all whose fancy turned
toward games of chance. Patrons
had to give a secret knock' and be
identified by the proprietor before
they could gain admittance.
Stray white mice were said to
have struck more than one coed
with terror. It was reported that
some prankish zoology student
hadfreed them.
Entertainment skits were based
on a burlesque theater theme.
Chorus lines, can-can dancers, and
French crooners participated.
Mary alumni also attended the
dance which has become an an-
nual Phi Tau tradition. It is con-
sidered the "party of the year,"
by fraternity members.
