viting them to petition for booth
space in 'the gigantic carnival.
Any campus group-house, resi-
dence, honorary or club-may sub-

best and most fully worked-out
plans, and. allot them space," he
Yost Field House, where the Car-
nival will be held April 21 and 22,
will accommodate only 50 booths,
Sperlich estimated. Remembering
the competition between the var-
ious student organizations during
the 1948 Michigras, he said, "It's
going to b'e a hard job picking out
the best petitions."
To give fuller instruction to or-
ganizatiorfs in making up their

petition, Sperlich and co-chair-
man Marg Kennedy will meet the
representatives from each group
at 4 p.m. 'March 1 in Rm. 3Dof
