Black and White Ball
Slated for Saturday
SAE's will honor spring pledges
at their traditional Black and
White Ball to be held from 9 to 12
p.m. Saturday in the Flight Room
at Willow Run Airport.
Couples garbed in black and
white will dance to the music of
Al Chase and his orchestra amidst
decorations which will carry out
the theme.
will descend to the walls of the
ballroom from a giant pledge pad-
dle suspended from the ceiling.
Replicas of the pledge pin, in-
scribed with the names of the
pledges, will decorate the walls of
the dance floor.
Pledge paddles with the names
of the couple, occasion, SAE crest
and a black and white ribbon,
have been chosen as the favor
for the dance.
The Black and White Ball tradi-
tion originated in the last century
at the University of Alabama, home
of thie fraternity's founding chap-
ter. The SAE's at Tuscaloosa in-
augurated the color theme, re-
stricting all attire and decoration
at the dance to black and white.
IT IS REPUTED that the color
theme at this time was carried out
to the extent that the men and
their dates were escorted to the
ball in black and white carriages
drawn by black and white horses.
Black and White Ball has
grown since then to become a
national tradition among the 131
chapters of SAE throughout the
country. The ball was inaugu-
rated on this campus in the
spring of 1947 when black and
white attired couples danced to
the musical rhythms of Buddy
Rich and his orchestra at Wash-
tenaw County Country Club.
A banquet at the SAE house will
begin the festivities this year, fol-
lowed by the dance.
Chairman of the ball' is Pat
Cummiskey, social chairman of the
house, who will be assisted by John
Iverson. Also in charge of arrange-
ments for the dance are Jerry
Shull, banquet; James Ghysels,
decorations and Jeff Knight and
Tony Georgilas, publicity.
