Michigras Groups Get Into Swing

Starting way ahead of the
scheduled weekend, members of
the Maize and Blue teams for
Frosh Weekend have spent the
last two weeks on extensive pub-
licity campaigns.
The Blue team picked up an
old axiom and turned last Mon-
day into Blue Monday with team
members wearing their blue bean-
ies, blue clothing and a blue tag
telling what it was all about.
* ', -
LAST WEEK the Blues had a
dark horse election with the dark
horse turning out to symbolize the
team itself. The horse, decked out
in a blue blanket, was scheduled
to make its appearance on the
steps of Angell Hall, but due to
bad weather this part of the elec-
tion was cancelled.
The Maize team, with their
"Moonshine Madness," have
been vieing for top publicity
honors with their various stunts.
Among these was a "barrel
parade" with members of the team
wandering around campus dressed
in barrels (real ones, at that) and
carrying the signs advertising
their night of Frosh Weekend.
THERE WAS a catastrophe to
this, though, when one of the
girl's barrels fell apart in a very
unfortunate spot on campus and
she was left standing in a circle
of broken slats. Needless to say
it attracted quite a bit of attention
from surrounding men. She was
wearing white underwear!
The idea of the barrels was
to signify hilbillies, and the
girls smoked corn cob pipes as
they walked around in front of
Angell Hall and the Union.
Another of the Blue team's
stunts was the Wolvercrat elec-
tion, the outcome of which was
made known by team members
dressed as newsboys distributing
papers announcing the Blue team s

FROSH WEEKEND originated
in 1948 as a project to pull the
freshmen women together and
give them a group project to work
f or.
This year's weekend falls on
April 18 and 19 with each team
having complete charge of one
night's festivities.
