"Football Fantasy," the inform-
al Homecoming Dance featuring
Elliot Lawrence will be held from
9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday as the
climax of the annual Homecoming
weekend.
With more than 30 college dance
dates behind them, the Elliot Law-
rence orchestra, according to ad-
vanced reports, is being hailed as
one of the greatest campus orches-
tras of all time.
LAWRENCE AND his orchestra
have played in all of the Big Ten
schools, all the Ivy League Schools
and practically every state uni-
versity and college in the nation.
He has won the new band
honors in Billboard's Annual
Campus Poll for the past three
Years. He and his orchestra also
were named "Band of the Year"
by Look and Orchestra World
magazines.
The music of Elliot Lawrence in
addition to the decorations for the
dance will set the scene of foot-
ball during the Halloween season.
DECORATIONS WILL include a
few three-dimensional figures of
football players and witches, num-
erous cutouts, banners and stream-
ers.

An addition to the Homecoming The big weekend was first in-
augurated in 1897 when alumni
:\{::!':: t': came home for a football game
with the Varsity.
The first display contest was ap-
parently held a short time after
World War I but participation was
limited to fraternities.
IN 1937, WOMEN'S residences
were allowed to enter the contest
but were judged separately. Inde-
pendent houses and dorms took
part for the first time in 1944.
That is the year the uncalcu-
lating builders of the display for
one sorority constructed their
display in the basement and
then were unable to move it out-
