Tickets to Traditional Panhel Ball

Union Organizations Handle
Student Activities on Campus

Engagements Revealed

* * * *

Independent coeds have been in-
vited to attend Panhellenic's an-
nual P a n h e 1 Ball, "Musical
Moods," which will be held from
9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday in the
Only 45 tickets remain to be
sold. Independent women may
purchase them in the Undergrad-

a.m. to 5 p.m. today through Fri-
RAY GORRELL and his orches-
tra will supply the music for the
dance, and a musical theme will
be carried out in the decorations.
Each rooni off the Concourse
will be decorated by members of
the sororities and each will be
distinctive since one room will
be in a semi-classical theme,
and another on a blues tone,
while still another will be done
in jazz style.
Tickets for the dance are being
sold through representatives of
each 'sorority. They may be pur-
chased for $3 and carnation bou-
tenieres are also available for 30
cents. Both tickets and carna-
tions wil be delivered to each sor-
ority house on Friday.

BECAUSE OF the limited capa-
city of the League, only affiliated
coeds and their escorts will attend
the dance. Last year marked the
first that the dance was held in
the League ballroom. Previously
Panhel Ball had been given in the
IM Building.
However, due to the increas-
ing cost of holding the dance at
that location, the Central Com-
mittee decided to give "Midnite
in Manhattan"-last year's ball
--at the League.
The experiment proved so suc-
cessful that this year's Central
Committee, headed by Elaine

While paid employes direct the
Union's commercial facilities, all
social, recreational and education-
al activities are handled entirely
by the student organization.
Led by Union President John
Kathe, '52P and Recording Secre-
tary Jim Moran, '52, the Union
hierarchy is divided into five gen-
eral commtitees, each of which has
two or more co-chairmen who
compose the Junior Executive
It is this council presided over
by the senior officers that makes
all decisions regarding policy on
student activities.
The committees which cover ev-
ery facet of student Union acti-
vities are:
Jack Ehlers, '53E, and Bill Burke,
'53, are co-chairmen of this group
which directs all functions which
take place within the building. The
tournaments in bridge, billiards
and ping pong are handled by the
committee as well as such services
as travel, tutorial and ticket re-
ion dances, parties and other en-
tertainment come under the scope
of this committee headed by Dick
Demmer, '53 BAd., Raffee Johns,
Spec. and Norm Zilber, '53. One of
the highlights of campus enter-
tainment each year is the Union's
Gulantics talent show.
TEE-This group acts as the liai-
son between the Union and the rest
of the campus. Its media include
the Daily, the Union News, posters
and displays. The committee also
publishes the 'M' handbook and
the Union calendar. The chairmen
are Earl Cline, '53, Harvey How-
ard, '53, Mark Oscherwitz, '53 and
Louis Zako, '53.
TEE-This group, whose functions

are less clearly defined than any
of the others, generally promote
events outside of the Union-on
and off the campus. Each year it
takes charge of the orientation
program, University Day, and the
Union Open House. Such affairs
as theatre trips and homecoming
displays are directed by the com-
mittee. Gene Weaver, '53 and Mort
Scult, '53, head the group.
group is in charge of coordinating
staff activities. Under the direc-
tion of Chris Brown, '53 and Bill
Jentes, '53, it also handles office
management and requisitions sup-
Each semester the Union holds
a meeting for prospective staffers.
The students, whose only qualifi-
cation is that they be Union mem-
bers, are given a choice of which
committee they wish to work on.
They will help out on any project
their committee is undertaking by
working' on decorations, selling
tickets, writing letters or doing
general clerical work in the stu-
dent office. They are credited with
the amount of work they do each
At the end of their sophomore
year, the men are eligible to peti-
tioi for the Junior Executive
Council. The retiring council
chooses its successors from these
petitioners. The new president and
recording secretary are selected
from the outgoing executive board
by the retiring senior officers.
Although there is no pay con-
nected with any Union office, the
Union president receives other re-
munerations. He serves ex-officio
as a voting member of the power-
ful Student Affairs Committee. In
addition, each outgoing senior of-
ficer receives a gift in a sealed
envelope from the Union. Although
the contents are never revealed, all
recipients have been highly satis-
