Annual Dance
For Engineers
Slated Friday
Gigantic Slide Rule
To Be Main Theme
Of Ball Decorations
Engineers may purchase tickets
this week for their annual dance,
Slide Rule Ball, which will be
given from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday
in the Union Ballroom.
Attended exclusively by mem-
bers of the School of Engineering,
the dance climaxes the competi-
tion between the slide rule men
and their rivals, the lawyers.
A HUGE EIGHT foot slide rule
is the main point of contention
between the two groups each year.
According to tradition, the dance
which uses the slide rule as part
of its decorations will be the most
Consequently, the legal men
occupy their thoughts during
the weeks before the event in
figuring ways and means to con-
fiscate the computing instru-
Although the feud between the
two schools began many years
ago, this is the first year that both
dances have been held on the
same night.,

Women Givenh
List of Rules
Formula Published
For Happy Marriage
A new set of rules stating how
to make a man stay in love with
his wife through the years has
recently been published.
The advice could be termed as
the "firsts" and "lasts" of a wo-
man's behavior in regard to her
IN THE LIST of "firsts" comes
the following advice: the wife
should be the first to laugh at her
husband's jokes, even if they are
not worth laughing at.
She should be the first to ad-
mit that he used good judgment
in some deal which turned out
well, and the first to malke ex-
cuses for him if the undertak-
ing was a failure.
The list also emphasizes that
the wife should be the first to be
impressed by a new accomplish-
ment of which her husband is
very proud but concerning which
he has not yet admitted his own
ANOTHER BIT of advice is to
be the first to appreciate his gen-
erosity. This is especially effec-
tive when an audience is present
composed of individuals whom
hubby would like to impress with
this information.
According to the list, the
smart wife will be the first to
notice and remark about any
mindr or major change in, his
The smart woman will remem-
ber to be the first to mention that
her husband predicted an event
which eventually happened, but
the first to ignore any wrong
guesses which he might have
A WOMAN should always be
the last to disclose her hus and's
faults or shortcomings either to
him or to anyone else.
Further suggestion for a wo-
man if she wishes to remain in
the good graces of her husband
is to be the last to remind him
of his age.
The woman should be the last
to take credit for any bright ideas
he has ?assumed to have thought
up himself, and agree with him
when he takes the credit.
The last suggestion in the list
is to be the last to criticize his
taste, even in neckties, and never
tell him that he is making a mis-

Adelia Cheever Offers Coeds
Comfortable Substitute Home

A home away from home-that's
whathAdelia Cheever House is to
the 28 coeds who live in the 'spa-
cious, brick University-owned resi-
dence at 730 Haven St.
The dormitory is run on a semi-
cooperative basis. A hired cook
prepares the meals but the girls
share the remaining work among

Cheever is the fact that they wear
house pins. The pins are plain gold
or with pearls and bear the letters

Besides the work they do in
the dormitory, the coeds are ac-
tive in campus activities. How-
ever, they maintain the high
scholastic standards of the
Last semester 16 residents of
Cheever House earned house scho-
larships for their scholastic work.
The dormitory has a forty-thous-
and dollar endowment fund for
such scholarships.
THESE scholarships are award-
ed by the house's Board of Pa-
tronesses. Present members of this
board include Mrs. James P. Ad-
ams, Mrs. Florence Mabel Cow-
den, Mrs. Jessie McCall Taggart
and Mrs. Meta Henne Walter.
The history of Adelia Cheever
House goes back to the 1860's
when students used to flock to
the home of Judge and Mrs.
Noah Cheever who opened their
home for social activities.
In those days, the students at
the University had to depend up-
on the Ann Arbor townspeople for
their social life.

'THE CHEEVERS also gave free
board and room to financially
needy students in exchange for
help with odd jobs around their
One of the students, aided by the
Cheevers was Prof. E. C. Goddard
who became the Cheever's sole
heir, In 1921 Prof. Goddard gave
the home at 516 Madison St. to
the University to be used as a co-
operative house for girls.

maintains that it happened unin-

and reserved both the Union and
the League last summer.
Unknown to him, the lawyers
had also decided to hold their
dance the evening of May 4, 'but
had neglected to reserve a place
in which to give it.

not for the benevolence of the en-

PATRON SAINT-The judicial-looking gentleman in the middle of this bevy of campus women is St.
Ives, patron saint of lawyers, who has come to Ann Arbor for Crease Ball, the annual law school
dance which will be held Friday in the League Ballroom. He has set up a dating bureau to assist
coeds who are praying that the lawyers will set aside their books for the event.

Barristers To Hold Traditional Crease Ball

Lawyers will close books Friday
evening to attend their biggest
dance of the year, Crease Ball,
which will be held from 9 p.m., to
1 a.m. in the League Ballroom.
Presented annually by Barris-
ters, honorary law society, the
dance is formal, and only mem-
bers of the law school and faculty
may attend.

IN ADDITION to the surprise
decorations which will come from
Europe, lawyers have guaranteed
that the eight-foot slide rule
owned by the engineering school
will appear at the dance.
The rivalry between the two
schools began many years ago
when the law classrooms were
located in Haven Hall. With the
lawyers guarding one entrance
to the diag and the engineers
holding down the fort at the
opposite end, the feud started.
The legal men would arouse the
anger of the "engine gang" by
parking a car in the middle of the

engineering arch and letting the
air out of the tires.
* * *
rule men would form a human
chain across the arch to prevent
the lawyers from reaching their
The rivalry reached greater
heights in 1921 when the legal
men stole the giant slide rule
which was to be the main decor-
ation of Slide Rule Ball. Their
anger having been thoroughly
aroused this time, the engineers,
armed with tear gas bombs, in-
vaded the building where Crease
Ball was being held. They also
managed to cut the power box
In 1942, it was decided to hold
the two dances on different nights,
but the groundwork for traditional
rivalry had already been laid.
* * *
LAWYERS AND engineers will
revive tradition this year when
they stage their big dances on

the same nights. The success of
both events will be measured by
the appearance or absence of the
giant computing instrument.
Ken Norman and his orches-
tra will play at Crease Ball and
-will also entertain during inter-
mission with several comedy
In conjunction with the dance,
lawyers will publish Raw Review,
a humorous satire on Law Review,
the school's magazine in which
professors give their views on
Typical of the articles printed
in Raw Review are A Handy-
Dandy Guide Through Law School,
Faculty Fantasy and Tips on
Jurisprudence. Copies of the hu-
morous magazines are given to,
couples attending the dance.
Tickets for Crease Ball may be
purchased from any member of'
Barristers. They are also being
sold in Hutchins Hall.
