"Watch The.Birdie" has become
t the password of at least half of
the freshmen women on campus.
The Blue team of Frosh Week-
end has chosen as the theme for
their dance, which will be given

an epic of photography through
the ages.
Coeds have been spied along the
diag wearing blue beanies, on
w h i c h have been embroidered
"Blue Team." A few of the girls
are also wearing signs on their
backs proclaiming the merits of
coming to the Blue dance.
Alice Mencher, '53, staunch
member of the Blue team who is
one of the many wearing signs
don her back, stated, "The sign
doesn't bother me. After all, I
don't have to look at it!"
The floorshow will consist of
several still life pictures which
suddenly come to life to portray
personages of a particular era.
Decorations Committee of the
Blue Team will begin work at 7
p.mtoday in the League.
Birdie, played by Jean Waidl1y,,
goes from scene to scene with
grandfather, father and son, giv-
ing continuity to the plot.
Ted Smith and his orchestra
will play for the all-campus dance.
Tickets are now on sale from 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Union and
the League and will also be sold
at the door.
In anticipation of their greatest
stunt; Ann Hagan, publicity chair-
man, urges everyone to be on hand
at noon today, when the Diag is
t the center of much activity on
the part of the Blue team.

end wandered around Yost Field
House Friday and Saturday nights
in the madness of Michigras.

supplement Connie Kay, who
will play the part of Maizie, the
heroine of the show, in her es-
capades on the campus during
the flapper era.
The publicity committee, head-
ed by Jo Phillips, also organized a
skit which was presented at the

CUSTOMERS of the League
dining room have heard, to their
surprise, a completely new rendi-
tion of "Margie." The coeds have
replaced the latter record with a
new one entitled "Maizie," re-
corded by Ray Slavin, Jerry Hel-
fenbein, and Morry Passer.
Completing the efforts of the
committee to publicize their
dance is a "Flapper Day Sun-
dae." Several local ice cream em-
poriums have made the dish the
"sundae of the week."
The first points in the com-
petition between the Maize and
Blue teams were captured by the
Maize, when their team was
found to have the highest scholar-
ship of the two.
Points are given to the teams
on the basis of decorations, floor
show, number of tickets sold, pub-
licity and anything else that
could possibly be judged.

All-campus elections are set for
today and tomorrow. Have you
cast your vote?
Statistics show that the campus
ratio of men per women amounts
to three, but on the Student Leg-
islature the ratio is four men to
one woman representative. In this
case the ratio is not favorable to
the cause of the 'fairer' members.
Students cry that the Student

Legislature is not a fair repre-
sentation of the campus body and
according to the above figures,
the women of this campus are
not receiving the same represen-
tation that the men are.
The reason for this is that
many of the women fail to vote
and fail tosupport their candi-
dates. According to the records of
the past three years, there has
not been a legislator from Jor-
dan and relatively few from the
other large dorms. This is a ser-
ious lack and can be remedied by
the participation of every woman
on campus in voting.
