June 12, on the Island.

many projects sponsored by the

events was the Senior Ball, the
oldest traditional dance on cam-
pus, which is held annually to
honor the graduating seniors.
"Once Upon A Time" -was the
theme of this year's dance which
featured decorations based on mo-
dernized nursery rhymes. Many of
the Mother Goose characters

closely resembled campus "Joe
Colleges" and "Mary Coeds."

picted at the dance were Georgie
Porgie, the campus wolf, Little
Boy Blue in football garb, and 01'
King Cole having his ID checked
at the door.
Couples entered the Union ball-
room under the huge legs of the
Giant and climbed up Jack's
Beanstalk to the ballroom. At the
entrance to thekdance floor was
the large clock from Hickory
Dickory Dock," with a swinging
pendulum to permit only one
couple at a time to pass.

committee for Senior Ball and
other projects is the Senior Board
which consists of Fred Ittner and
Joe Epstein, publicity; Phil Berry
and Jack Ray, finance; Mark

It seems strange to Miss
Fitches' friends and to the Lan-
sing junior herself, that she is
attending school here, since
both her parents and most of
her relatives graduated from
Michigan State.
Jokingly, Nancy admits she's the
black sheep of the family.

HOWEVER, she is not consider-
ed a black sheep on this campus,
as is evident from her member-
ship in Wyvern and Mortar Board.
Miss Fitch is also in the Eng-
lish Honors course of the Liter-
ary College.
As would be expected, Miss
Fitch likes all sports, with swim-

IN LINE with this interest, she
hopes to be a playground leader

activities, the new president of
the Women's Athletic Associa-
tion has gained valuable experi-
ence from such duties as re-
freshment chairman of Michi-
gras, and assistant general
chairman of Frosh Weekend.
The WAA Board this year has
accomplished much in the way of
promoting sports interest among
the women on campus and in co-
recreational activities under the
leadership of Miss Funk.
Miss Fitch has these and many
other objectives in view for next
year and the new board members
are confident that all will be ac-
