Michigan Marching Band To Herald

Michigras Floats,

Figure

Balloons

The high-stepping Michigan
Marching Band will take the spot-
light once again, heralding the
Michigras parade at 3:30 p.m. on
Friday.
Thirty-three floats in a blaze of
color, five high-school bands, the
Pershing Rifle Corps, and ten gi-
gantic figure balloons will follow
pitching the Michigras fever high.
Also riding in the parade will be
the 'king and queen,' chosen in a
costume and beauty contest from
Ann Arbor school children.
MOUREEN BEETAN and Fred-
die Slack, the two winners, will
ride in a car of 1900 vintage,
dressed in typical motoring cos-
tumes of the period. Their titles
are also in keeping with the
theme; they are "Danny Duster
and Betty Bustle."
Judging the floats will be
Mayor W. E. Brown of Ann Ar-
bor, Mrs. Harlan Hatcher, Mr.
Wilt, Mr. Lawton, and a stu-
dent judge who has not yet
been named.
From their vantage point in a
stand in front of the Union, these
judges will view the two-hour long
parade as it moves along State St.
from Liberty to the Union.
IN LINE WITH the theme of
the whole parade, "50 Years With
Michigras," the organizations en-
tering floats have chosen to depict
everything from the small begin-
ning of the University, as repre-
sented by U' Hall, to "The End
of Barnaby," a recent occurence.
j Included in this vast panor-
ama of progress will be. such
things as 'a Keystone Cops
chase, a Prohibition Speakeasy,
and a "Scholar Ship."
Michigan dating through the
ages is in for a ribbing, and
