son, manager; Bernard Jennett,
secretary; John Bay, treasurer,
and Wesley True, accompanist.

At WestQuad
West Quadrangle is taking on a
new look as Quad men prepare for
the annual "SpringFantasy" for-
mal slated from 9 p.m. to midnight
Saturday in the Quad's two main
dining rooms.
Elaborate decorations that sug-
gest spring and romance will be on
hand to add atmosphere to the
masculine quarters.
Couples entering the Quad will
pass under a trellis of flowers
while the concourse will be arrayed
with more flowers and shrubs.
The concourse will also be the
setting of a wishing well, where
couples can wish thoughts of finals
away, and a miniature waterfall
that will provide more of the
spring fantasy.
The center of attraction for the
dining "ballroom" will be the tra-
ditional mirrored globe. Both din-
ing rooms will be extensively dec-
orated with shrubs, flowers and
soft colored lighting.
The Spring Fantasy was estab-
lished as an annual event shortly
before the last war. Chairman-
ships are filled by petition; selec-
tion being made by the West Quad
council. It has been a popular
Quadrangle dance since its begin-
ning ten years ago.
Programs and favors will be pre-
sented to coed guests at the door
while intermission entertainment

will round out the gala evening.

As a feature of the final co-
recreational night at the Intra-
mural Building, the members of
Michifish, WAA swimming club
will present a show in synchro-
nized swimming at 7:30 p.m. to-
morrow in the Intramural pool.
Called "Toys 'n Tune," the ex-
hibition will depict a toy shop
come to life.
Some of the featured numbers
include "Teddy Bears Picnic,"
"Waltzing Cat," "Syncopated
Clock," "Valentine Tango, " "I'm
Forever Blowing Bubbles," "Nur-
sery Rhymes Melody," and "Wagon
Ballet "legs," "kips" and "cata-
linas" will be exhibited for the
audience in these numbers.
To follow the theme, coeds will
be costumed in black leotards,
teddy bear costumes and cowboy
hats and guns, as well as the more
conventional bathing suits.
In planning the numbers for the
show, Michifish members first lis-
tened to records and designed rou-
tines that fitted the music. Then
each coed worked out the forma-
tions completely on dry land be-
fore venturing into the water.
The Michifish exhibition was al-
so a featured event at the Union
open house.
Members of the club were se-




lected after completing several re-
quirements of the group. Qualifica-
tions include the satisfactory per-
formance of basic strokes, as well
as the back dolphin, surface dive
and a dive off the edge of the pool.
