Ball Will Present Flanagan



Annual Dance
Will Feature
Pirate Theme
Pirates, treasure chests and des-
ert islands will furnish the back-
ground for the music of Ralph
Flanagan and his orchestra when
they take the bandstand from 9
p.m. to 1 a.m. tomorrow night for
the annual Interfraternity Council
Dance, to be held in the Intra-
mural Building.
IFC Ball Committee has been
working on the dance for about
two months, although the band
was contracted long before that.
The theme of the dance, which
is "Pirates' Treasure," will be car-
ried out through the ballroom by
paintings of pirates, liquor bot-
tles, treasure chests and palm
trees-everything symbolic of the
old pirate days.
q Jutting out off the west wall
of the IM Building will be a three
dimensional island, complete with
grass, palm trees and tangled fish
The bandstand will be in the
center of the north wall, backed
by a huge pirate scene suspended
above it. On either side of the
band and on the south wall as
well, will be hung'traditional blue
At the ends of the building,
more pirate scenes will be de-
Thirty fraternities will be repre-
sented by 16 booths which occupy
a prominent place at J-Hop and
IFC Ball. The Greek letters of
the houses will be suspended from
the drapes above the respective
Programs will be in the shape
of gold coins with a pirate's head
on the front and gold tassles
S hanging from them.
Throughout the dance, refresh-
ments will be served and a stand
for pictures will be set up.
Tickets are still on sale in the
Administration Building and on
the Diag.
The fraternity ticket trophy,
offered to the house , with the
highest percentage of ticket sales
within the fraternity, has been
awarded to Tau Delta Phi with a
total of 93% of the house. The
award is a gold cup offered by a
local jewelry store.
Flanagan and his band have
become well-known all over the
country in the last few years for
their "danceable" music.

League Positions
Petitioning for summer school
League positions is open until 5
p.m. today, at which time peti-

Council, being quite small dur-
ing the summer with predomi-
nately social functions to per-
form, is, consequently, more close-
ly knit. The president, chief co-
ordinator, also helps the chair-
men. This cooperative atmosphere
exists throughout the Council.

The League usually sponsors
bridge games and free Friday
night dances during the summer
session. However, a "free reign"
exists in the social field and the
League hopes to attempt new ac-
The summer events will be high-
