To Be Feted
Down from the north woods and
the legends of the lumberman will
come Paul Bunyan and his blue
ox to make an appearance at the
annual Paul Bunyan dance to be
given from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Sat-
urday, Dec. 1.
This is an annual event present-
ed by the foresters, and tradition-
ally it honors Paul Bunyan, who is
the hero of all lumbermen.
This legendary logman is sup-
posed to have lived during the days
when huge forests covered the
country, and the ring of the lum-
berman's axe rang through the
trees. A seventy-foot giant, he is
noted for many amazing feats of
Babe, the big blue ox, is the in-
separable companion of Bunyan.
Once,so the story goes, when Bun-
yan went away on a trip and left
Babe behind, the ox cried so hard
that his tears formed a great lake.
The typical garb of the lumber-
men-blue jeans and bright plaid
shirts-will set the style for the
To create the "woodsy" atmos-
phere, pine trees are being chop-
ped down and brought in from the
University forest preserve. The
trees will be put up around the

Ann Arbor, including last year's

At '' Praetie
It may look glamorous and easy,
but behind every colorful precision
formation executed by Michigan's
cheerleaders stand many months
of hard work.
Would - be cheerleaders begin
their training in May each year
when the current squad directs
sessions on the fundamentals of
jumping and yelling for those men
who plan to try out for the team.
THESE SESSIONS a n d all
cheerleaders' activities are limited
of course to men by a traditional
taboo against the feminine sex
that has never been broken.
Each fall the holdover tryouts
hold daily work outs under the
direction of Coach Newt Loken
and the captain and assistant
captain elected from the previ-
ous year's team. These latter
jobs are currently filled by
NCAA gymnast Ed Buchanan,
'52 Ed and Remo Boila, '53.
The climax of the =tryout period
is an individual performance of
two cheers, with all the motions,
by each man. The coach and cap-
tains then decide the roster of the
team for the year by a formal se-
cret ballot. A maximum of six
men are chosen in addition to the
captain and his assistant and the
names of the yell leaders squad
are traditionally announced the
Thursday proceeding the opening
Coach Loken, who is also gym-
nastics coach, is nationally known
as a expert in the cheerleading
field. He has written a book on
the subject and devised many yell
formations in use throughout the
nation. His high school cheer-
leaders' clinic, inaugurated in 1950,
was believed to be the first such
statewide event in the country.
More than 2400 cheerleaders par-
ticipated in this year's clinic at
the Michigan-Stanford football
The hard work of the cheer-
leaders does reap many advant-
ages though. The team attends
all football and basketball games,
as well as many other officialUni-
versity functions. Each year the
squad is provided with an official
car, through the courtesy of a lo-
cal automobile dealer. At the end
of each year, special awards are
made to the men who have served
on the squad.
ment by University students is
also being planned by the Union.
Tickets for the dance are priced
at $1 per couple and are on sale
at the Union main desk.
Art Bublitz is general chairman
for the dance. Other members of
the committee include Don Meikle,
publicity; Bill Hummel, decora-
tions; Hank Masteller, programs
and Art Maczci, entertainment.
A preview of Sophomore Caba-
ret was presented as entertain-
ment during the intermission at
last year's Cranberry Ball.
