THE MICHIGAN DAIL
Wilderness To Invade Campus
fit Paul Bunyan Dance Tomorrow
Having imported more than 150
pine trees from the university
Forestry Farms for the occasion,
the Forestry Club plans to turn
Waterman Gymnasium into a
veritable wilderness for its an-
nual Paul Bunyan "Formal" from
9 to 1 p.m. tomorrow night.
The only attire allowed will be
plaid shirts, jeans, boots and long
underwear since the committee
in charge of the dance plan to
make it the most informal "for-
mal" on the campus social calen-
dar this year.
A strictly back-to-nature at-
mosphere will prevail as sturdy
logs and plenty of floor space
replace chairs; and pine trees
and underbrush decorate the
dance floor. Couples will be
dwarfed by huge images of Paul
Bunyan, the legendary logger and
his big blue ox, Babe.
DON PABLO and his orchestra,
who will wear plaid shirts and
jeans in keeping with the in-
formal theme, will provide the
musical background for the danc-
ers. The intermission antics will

Refreshments consisting of
cider and donuts will be served
over a rough pine slab bar, re-
puted to be Ann Arbor's longest.
Bob Wismer, head barkeeper,
assures students that there will
be ample food for everyone.
Coeds can add that final touch
to their costumes by wearing one
of the spruce corsages which will
be sold at the dance. Photograph-
ers will also be on hand to record
the events for posterity.
