Students in all schools are in-
vited to attend Crease Ball which
is the annual law school dance
sponsored by Barristers, honorary
law society.
The dance, which is formal, will
be held from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Fri-
day in the League Ballroom.
TICKETS FOR the event may
be purchased in Hutchins Hall or
from any member of Barristers.
Ken Norman and his orches-
tra will perform the musical
honors for the occasion. Inter-
mission entertainment has also
been planned, and a photogra-
pher will be on hand to provide
remembrances of the dance.
Decorations will include mater-
ial which has arrived from Europe
especially for the dance. In addi-
tion to the judicial atmosphere,
the lawyers hope to present the
giant slide rule owned by the en-
gineering school.
THE LEGAL MEN have organ-
ized a searching party to uncover
the eight-foot computing instru-

ment in time for the dance. The
engineers report that they have
the slide rule safely hidden, but
the lawyers guarantee that they
will appear at Crease Ball with
it in their possession.
The 1951 edition of the Michi-
gan Raw Review will also appear
at the dance, and copies will be
given to every couple. The maga-
zine is published as a humorous
take-off on the Michigan Law Re-
view in which law school profes-
sors give their views on cases.
Committees for the dance in-
cludes A. N. Delpesco, general
chairman; Joe Stevens, tickets;

JAMES, HAS in the past few
years been rated as one of the top
musicians in the country. He is
especially popular for his trum-
pet music, and because of it has
become known as "the man with
the horn."
His orchestra is best known
for swing tunes, but it is equally
apt in the rendition of slow,
dreamy music. The musical

Gem 0o Love
Stone forMay
The emerald, birthstone for
May, has always been considered
in history as a love stone, closely
identified with Venus and particu-
larly propitious for women, bring-
ing them happiness in love and
comfort in domestic affairs.
The emerald is a rare gem,
and its value and beauty have been
appreciated from earliest times.
Cleopatra found the gem fascin-
ating. Her emerald mine near
the Red Sea is still in existence,
though producing no stones.
THE MOST important source of
emeralds today is South America.
At the time of the Spanish con-
quest, the Incas were found to
have a great wealth of the gems,
but the location of the mines were
kept a secret from the conquista-
By accident, the location of a
mine was discovered at Musa
in 1558.
Gold and emerald jewelry has
been found in the mounds of
Tuscany, Herculaneum and Pom-
peii, - mounds which probably
date back several thousand years
before America was discovered.
S* * *
IN RELIGIOUS history, the em-
erald was the third of the twelve
stones in Aaron's breastplate.
Legend and superstition have
attached themselves to the emer-
ald, as they have to all gems.
Possibly because of its green
color, it was considered an effec-
tive remedy for eye ailments. Hin-
du physicians used the water in
which an emerald had been im-
mersed for eye baths.

As a living memorial to Alice
Crocker Lloyd, former Dean of
Women at the University, the
members of Mortar Board have
developed the idea of honoring her
by creating one of the most out-
standing drama collections in the
country in her memory.
Because Miss Lloyd had an in-
tense interest in drama and lit-
erature and was one of the found-
ers of the Spring Drama Season
here, this memorial is being given.
* * *
the Speech Department recom-
mended essential names of books
to the group.
Prof. Kenneth Rowe of the
E n g li s h department helped
compile a list of books that he
knew Miss Lloyd especially en-
joyed and would have wanted
to see included in the collection.
Mortar Board is planning to
place this collection in a promin-
ent section of the League Library.
In addition to the collection
there will be a portrait of Miss
Lloyd and a parchment telling of
her achievements.

every president of a women's hous-
ing group on campus, including
dormitories, league houses, co-op-
eratives and sororities, to inform
them of this project.
Since they now have a com-
plete list of the dramas and an-
thologies that they hope to buy,
the members of Mortar Board
are asking that each woman
student contribute 20 cents
when her housing group presi-
dent requests a contribution.
This is being done in order to
finance the project.
Renee Pregulman, chairman of
the projects committee of Mortar
Board, with the help of Barbara
Molyneaux and Val Lemper is or-
ganizing the project.
