Square Dance
Held at LM.A.
Groups Present
The fourth annual Folk Festi-
val was held in Flint last night
with twenty men and women,
physical education majors from
the University, participating in
folk and square dancing demon-
Four oustanding college groups
present demonstrations each year
and opportunities are given for
audience participation.
* * *
FIRST ON the program, which
took place in LM.A. Auditorium,
were a number of dances in which
everyone participated. Next came
the group from the University un-
der the direction of Dr. Juana de
Laban and Howard Leibee.
The University group present-
ed the Ozark Hoedown, a west-
ern style square dance; Howard
Leibee did the calling. Next was
a couple dance, the Viennese
Following the University's per-
formance, Michigan State College,
Michigan State Normal College
and Central Michigan College of-
fered their demonstrations. The
program was concluded with an-
other series of dances which every-
one took part.
* **
DR. LABAN said that the pur-
pose of the festival is to provide an
opportunity for each school to
show what they offer in the field
of folk and square dancing and
also to make possible a cultural ex-
change of ideas for the teaching
of these dances.
"These performances are not
exhibitions, b u t demonstra-
tions," Dr. Laban stressed.
Groups from each school attend
to teach their dances and learn
new dances and teaching meth-
ods, not merely to entertain.
This was the third year in
which the University took part in
the festival.
Director of the Flint Festival
was Harold Bacon. Music was pro-
vided by Earl Vincent's Orchestra.
The Festival is sponsored joint-
ly by the Industrial Mutual Asso-
ciation, the Recreation Division of
the Mott Education Program and
,the Flint Board of Education.

The business administration

campus dance from 9 p.m. to 1

and orchestra will provide the mu-
sic. He has played at various so-
rcrities and fraternities on cam-
pus, and at Michigan State and
Western Michigan Colleges.

ruptcy Ball," will have a hobo

Stockings are never worn in
India where the weather is al-
ways warm, and low-heeled san-
dles with open toes are the style
in shoes. The sandles are usually
made of leather with brocade
trimming for evening wear.
Gold jewelry usually accentuates
this costume. A favorite accessory
is a heavy gold necklace worn
high around the neck in choker
A gold bracelet with bangles
dangling from it is a must with all
women except widows who wear
the bracelet without the bangles.
