Ancient Myth To Be Theme
Of Traditional Caduceus Ball


"The Temples of Aesculapius,"
ancient Greek and Roman god
famed for his powers of healing,
will furnish the setting for the an-
nual Caduceus Ball to be held
from 9:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday at
the Union.
Sponsored by Galens, honorary
medical society, the all-campus
seni-formal dance is given es-
pecially for medical students and
members of the University Hos-
pital staff.
Medical students will find much
of the early history of their pro-
fession in the theme. In the days
when medicine was closely asso-
ciated with mysticism, the ancient
Greeks and Romans believed that
those who slept in the sacred
temples of Aesculapius would be
cured of their ills.

The temples of the god, the son
of Apollo, were marked with the
caduceus, a rod entwined with
snakes, now familiar as the em-
blem of the Army Medical Corps.
Students and faculty members
will find more cheerful surround-
ings, however, than those of the
old temple. Frank Tinker's orches-
tra will provide the musical side.
Formerly held on the night be-
fore Washington's birthday, Ca-
duceus Ball is now traditionally
held on the Friday following the
Women will be granted 1:30 a.-
m. permission.
