dress of the lumbermen.
SINCE THEN the dance has be-
come an annual event, held in
honor of the greatest woodsman of
them all.
Paul Bunyan is the legendary
figure about whom stories and
traditions have, been told and
retold as a part of the lumber-
men's lore.
He is supposed to have grown
unnumbered inches each day until
he reached his full height, of 43
axe handles. He also gained 349
pounds per day as he grew.
ONE STORY says that the grid-
dle on- which they cooked pan-
cakes for his breakfast was so big
that the cook's helpers had to tie
slabs of bacon on their feet and
skate around the griddle to grease
it. It was hald a mile long and so
wide that the cook could not see
across it.
Pikes Peak is supposed to have
been formed when Paul piled
rocks around his pike pole, and
he built Niagara Falls for a
shower bath.

when he was feeling particularly
sad, his tears formed the Great
Salt Lake.
AS IN FORMER years, pine
trees wil be put up around the
room to create the proper atmos-
phere.
The trees being used this year
were cut down by members off
the Forestry Club, who earlier
this month traveled out to the
University - owned Stinchfield
Forest and cut some 220 red pine
trees, all of which are over 25
feet tall.

and the United States Forestry
Service.

South Quad Plans
Christmas Dance
In Modern Style
While most campus residences
are presenting traditional Christ-
mas parties, South Quadrangle
will make its debut into the social
circles of the University Decem-
ber 15 with its presentation of
"Noel Moderne."
As the name implies, it will be a
Christmas Dance, but it will be
presented in a novel and modern
style.
Shying away from the usual
Christmas tones, the color scheme
of the dance will be a shocking
pink, which will be carried
through from punch to ornaments.
Transformation of the divided
dining room into one huge ball-
room will provide adequate op-
portunity for the committee to
carry out all its decorative whims.
Among the decorations will be
modern Christmas trees created
to add to the "Noel Moderne" at-
mosphere.
Carols, which incidentally will
be the same old traditional ones,
will be the attraction in the main
lounge where there will be a large
Christmas tree decorated to com-
pliment the scheme of furnishings.
The dance will last from 9 to 12
midnight, at which time couples
may adjourn to a candle-lit Club
600.

There, among other things, will
be a trio which will offer music on
the dreamy side to keep in step
with the hour and the atmosphere.
Price of admission of the semi-
formal, "Noel Moderne" is $2.50
per couple.
Tickets may be purchased in
the South Quad lobby from 5:30
to 8 p.m. or from any Quad social
chairman, council member or
house officer.

Little Club
"Little Club" will be open for its
fourth week as a campus "night-
spot" from 9 p.m. to midnight to-
night in the Michigan Room of
the League.
The club is patterned after
many of the nation's most popular
nightclubs, with tables topped
with whiskey bottle candle hold-
ers surrounding the dance floor.
Bob Leopold's combo will pro-
vide music for dancing, and will
also feature their special arrange-
ment of "Because of You." Bob
Shanahan w i11 present "Blue
Moon" on his trombone.
Baritone Tom Fitzsimmons will
take the spotlight during inter-
mission, singing "Vanity" and
some of the other popular num-
bers of the day. Novelty numbers
by the band will also be an en-
tertainment feature.
A refreshment bar where cokes
and potato chips will be served
will be set up by members of ATM
for thirsty or hungry dancers.
Admission will be $1 per couple
until 10:30 p.m. when the price
will be lowered to 74 cents for
latecomers.

Jazz Jamboree
Don Herman, disc jockey over
station WHRV will serve as Mas-
ter of Ceremonies and offer a
commentary on the music to be
played at the "Jamboree in Jazz"
to be held at 8 p.m. Sunday night
in the League Ballroom.
The evening of informal music
ranging from dixieland to blues
will feature the music of Bob Leo-
pold and his "Ann Arbor Alley
Cats." Proceeds from the "Jam-
boree" wil be used by Scroll hon-
orary society for senior affiliated
women, the sponsoring organiza-
tion, to build a scholarship fund.
The ballroom will be arranged
with small tables and refreshments
will be sold as the first version of
the informal concerts now popular
in the East has its campus debut.
A local coed Cam Duncan, will
also be featured during the eve-
ning singing "Baby, 'That Ain't
Right," and blues numbers. Other
members of the combo will be
spotlighted in various pieces, such
as the popular "Down Yonder,"
and "When the Saints Come
Marching In."
