Dance

To

Honor Graduating

Seniors

*

Traditional Ball Will Feature
'Once Upon A Time' Theme

"Once upon a time" the seniors
gave a ball.
That "time" was so long ago
that Senior Ball has the honor of
being the oldest traditional dance
on campus, having been estab-
lished long before J-Hop.
The 82nd Senior Ball, "Once
Upon A Time," will be held from
9 p. m. to 1{ a. m. Saturday in
the Union Ballroom. Although the
dance is given in honor of seniors,
the entire campus is invited to
attend.
THE EARLIEST records of spe-
cial entertainment in honor of
ngraduating students appeared in
the first student newspaper, The
Chronicle, a bi-monthly edition
which was later replaced by The
Daily.
In 1870, The Chronicle's first
year of publication, a story was
printed telling of a reception
held by the president at his
residence for the graduating
class and alumni of the Univer-
sity. That same issue told of an
increase in the enrollment of
the University to 82 students,
' including three women.
The senior reception program
continued to rise in popularity un-
til a dance was held along with
the reception, and finally, a Sen-
ior Ball.
THE YEAR 1911 was an unus-
ual one for the senior event. The
dance was held from 8 p. m. to
3 a. m. and the grand march was
omitted because of the "unavoid-
able confusion and delay" it caus-
ed,
Two s e n ior dances were
scheduled at the last minute
in 1931 because of a demand for
tickets. Tal Henry and his North
Carolinians played at the Union
{ Ballroom and the Union Or-
ehestra. provided the musical
setting at the League.

Three-day house parties pre-
ceding Senior Ball were the spe-
cial attractions in 1936, when Ted
Weems and his orchestra traveled
to Ann Arbor for the event. Sig-
ma Phi scheduled a canoe trip up
the Huron on Thursday and a
jaunt to Detroit for Friday before
the dance.
The Alpha Delts planned an en-
thusiastic outdoor sports program
'for the weekend of the pall.
A SCARCITY of men's formal
attire in 1946 prompted the dance
committee to forget tradition and
make the ball an informal occa-
sion. However, "all men who own-
ed dinner jackets we're urged to
wear them." Louis Prima played
for the event that year which
used the theme, "We came, we
saw, we conquered." Programs
were designed to resemble military
discharge papers.
Among the suggestions given
by The Daily in 1935 for de-
sirable gowns to wear to Senior
Ball was the following: "Dainty
puffed sleeves, trim white col-
lar and cuffs and a tightly fit-
ted waistline form a charming
evening dress of dark blue mar-
quisette which would win the
approving eyes of any coed's
date."
The Daily was also keeping pace
with the fashion of the day in
1935 when it described "the very
new, but already much talked
about short evening dresses which
would be seen at Senior Ball."
* * *
ONE OF THE new creations was
described as being a "chiffon with
little blossoms in Degas pastels.
Grosgrain straps uphold the bo-
dice and leave the shoulders dar-
ingly bare. The hem is but 10
inches from the ground-quite a
change in style for many of usj
