Military Ball To Make!
'TopBrass' o f Women

Groups Will Hold Weekly Dance Classes

-Daily-Larry Wilk
BATTLE GROUND -- Spear maidens and fraternity men will
clash in a battle for a fraternity pin in the Henderson House-
Delta Sigma Phi production of "Das Valkeries," which will be
presented at 8:30 p.m. Saturday in Hill Auditorium as part of
the first Spring Weekend Project.
, . * *

"The only person that outranks
a general is his wife," this saying
won't hold true four days from to-
day at the annual Military Ball
which is to be presented from 9
p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday in the Union.
Because on that day 300 Uni-
versity coeds will be bestowed
with the highest military rank.
IN A SIMPLE "ceremony" com-
plete with the colorful military at-
mosphere provided by the brass
and braid of formal service uni-
forms, women will receive an hon-
orary commission of the highest
rank in the form of a favor.
According to the citation this
commission will be awarded the
coeds in view of their fidelity,
charm, beauty and abilities.
Official military behaviour then
demands that all other officers
render such obedience as is due an
officer of such grade.
* * *
HOWEVER the newly appoint-
ed coeds will not be the only high
officials present at the dance as
commanding officers of three re-
serve units of the area are ex-
pected to attend.
These dignitaries are Lieut.
General W. B. Kean, Command-
ing General, 5th Army Head-
quarters; Brig. General ,M. K.
Derchelmann, Commandant
Headquarters Air Force ROTC
and Rear Admiral F. P. Olds,
Commandant 9th Naval District.
Invitations have also been ex-
tended to Governor G. Mennen
Williams and various professors
and deans.

IN CONTRAST to past military
Ball no receiving line will be held.
For a perfect spring weekend
Publicity Chairman, Bob Lit-
tleson, suggests that members
of the reserve units attend Mili-
tary Ball Friday night and then
make the weekend complete by
witnessing Skit Night Saturday.
At the dance couples will hear
the music of Ray Fifer's 14-piece
orchestra that features vocals by
Ann Letsis, a singer who has per-
formed on her own radio program.
A special type of entertainment
will also be experienced by the
couples as they watch the Pershing
Rifles do precision drill maneuvers.
Tickets for the ball may still be
purchased for the dance at the
NROTC Office in North Hall from
Army Instructors in TCB and from
members of the Central Commit-
tee.
This committee is composed of
Kit Hough, General Chairman;
Dick Merrill, Secretary; Bob Lit-
tleson, Publicity Chairman; Bill
Fisher, Decorations Chairman and
Steve Qua, Finance Chairman.
All coeds attending the 1953
Military Ball are requested not to
wear flowers.

League . .
Women are needed for the Lea-
gue singles dance classes to be
held at 7:15 p.m. today and to-
morrow in the League.
The dance class committee is
extending an invitation to Adelia
Cheever, Alice Lloyd, Betsy Bar-
bour, Couzens and Helen Newber-
ry residences to send ten coeds
from each house.
Several sororities have been
asked to send five women each
to the dance classes.
Invitations have been extended
to Alpha Chi Omega, Alpha Delta
Pi, Alpha Epsilon Phi, Alpha
Gamma Delta, Alpha Omicron Pi,
Alpha Phi, Alpha Xi Delta, Chi
Omega and Collegiate Sorosis.
Those attending the dance
classes are currently learning the
rumba, samba and fox trot under
the instruction of Johnny Urban-
ic, former dance instructor. Class-
es will start learning the Charles-
ton shortly.

All students are invited to at-!
tend these classes. There is a
charge of $3 for men, while wo-
men are admitted free.
In the past, the dance classes
have given an opportunity for
campus women to visit the In-
ternational Center and become
acquainted with the many other
activities which take place.
