in the Union ballroom from 9 p.m.
to 1 a.m. tonight.
In order to disprove the theory
that law students prefer study to
the more common weekend activi-
ties the 'Wig andi Robe' dance
started a tradition. The origin
of that tradition follows:
Back in the old days, BLQ, (be-
fore Law Quad), an up and com-
ing law student, Tommy Tortfea-
ser, conferred with a group of his
colleagues at the Orient, the local
Tommy, recalling his m a n y
weekends with the books, wrenched
the pencil from his hand in order
to pick up his mug of beer, and
said, "Forty-eight years without
a break is enough."
With this historic background
in mind, the Barristers are prepar-
ing to continue the tradition to-
night in the Union.
Rex Smith and his band will
provide the music for the dancing
couples at the semiformal dance.
