Fred Netting
Martial Decorations
To Uphold Tradition
Of Springtime Dance
Fred Netting and his orchestra
from Detroit will play for the an-
nual Military Ball which will be
held from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. tonight
in the Union Ballroom.
The dance which is attended by
members of the campus ROTC
units, reserve officers and mem-
bers of the National Guard has
been presented each spring se-
mester by the military men since
the first world war.
This year, still using the tradi-
tional martial decorations, but
with a new twist, the uniformed
men and their dates will be greet-
ed at the top of the stairway by a
huge welcome sign.
On display in the hallway and
in the main ballroom will be a
case of medals awarded during the
last war by the various branches
of the armed services.
Insignia of the services will also
be placed about the ballroom where
cut away projection pieces of
training aids will be visible to the
dancing couples.
A novel clock will keep official
army time during the evening.
Based on Greenwich time, the
dance will last unofficially till 6
The Netting group features Judy
Claire as Vocalist and Wally Gor-
don on the trumpet. Popular in
the Detroit area, the Netting group
styles its arrangements after
Ralph Flanagan.
Ticket for the dance are avail-
able from officers and members of
the central committee or at the
military offices. They will also be
sold at the door.
The committee requests that no
corsages be worn.

THIS YEAR an effort is being
made by the entire senior board
to combine the classes from all the
different colleges on campus into
one working body.
Elected by his classmates,
Stenn took over the job already

the Student Legislature. He was

STENN HOPES to enter law
school next fall. Knowing that he
is a "politician at heart," his fel-
low members of Michigauma, all
campus senior honorary society,
have named him "papoose kisser."
His interests in law are also
furthered by his service on the
Men's Judiciary and Joint Ju-

In his freshman year Stenn won
numerals in tennis and basketball
-and went on to varsity tennis the

appear for the first time in the

The busy senior has worked out
a system to get him where he's
supposed to be at the right time.
He keeps lists in his pockets which
are easily checked and which af-
terwards serve as a record of
where he has been.
When asked if these many acti-
vities had been of any value to
him Stenn replied, "Definitely
yes. I've become more keenly
aware of campus life. Being close-
ly associated with the faculty and
my fellow students has made me
feel more a part of the University
-that I have devoted something
to the school."
