Frosh To

Vie

For Honors
DuringEvent
By JANET SMITH
Every spring the Ann Arbor
campus witnesses a breath-taking
race. Under the title of "Frosh
Weekend," two teams of freshmen
coeds, the Maize and the Blue, put
on a floorshow and a dance. At the
end of the competition, the win-
ning team receives a plaque as
proof of its ability.
The starting gun in the 1953
race was fired this morning with
the announcement of the theme
chosen by each team. These
themes, kept secreteuntil now,
were chosen by the central com-
mittee of each team.
"IT'S OUT of this world!" say
Maize team committee members,
in discussing their theme, "Jump-
in' Jupiter."
Realizing that when the sec-
ond semester rolls around, stu-
dents get bored with school and
tired of this everyday life, the
Maize team thought that per-
haps minds might wander to the
outer space.
Some students might even think
it would be exciting to take a trip
to one of the planets.
* * *
SINCE THE Maize team cannot
manage to take the campus off
this earth, they decided to do the
next best thing - bring Jupiter
down to Ann Arbor.

saucers have been used by

To Award Prizes
Applications for the Delta Delta
Delta Scholarship and the Kappa
Delta Alumnae Scholarship are due
at 5 p.m. on Wednesday in the
Dean of Women's office.
The Tri Delt award, based on
scholarship and leadership, is open
to any junior women who will be
a senior next fall.
The $150 Kappa Delt scholarship
rotates among Albion College,
Michigan State University and the
University. This year the Univer-
sity chapter will award the prize
to some sophomore or junior wom-
an on_ campus on the basis of
grades, activities and financial
need.
Applications for both scholar-
ships are available in the Dean of
Women's Office.

FROSH WEEKEND ... Miss Ethel McCormick, social director of
the League, fires the shot that sets off the race between the Maize
and the Blue. Competing for top honors in this years Frosh Week-
end, to be held from 9 p.m. to midnight April 17 and 18, the
Maize team will present "Jumpin' Jupiter," while the Blue team
has chosen "Whirled Series" as its theme.

5how Interest
The "ole college spirit" that is
unique with members of the Mimes,
organization was illustrated re-
cently in a letter sent to Harry
Blum, president of the campus
group from Frank A. Kapp, a
"chorus girl" in "Michigenda," the
first Union Opera Production.
In the letter, Kapp expressed his
wish to be included in on all
Mimes' activities.
Kapp said he was Costumes and
Scenery Chairman for "Culture,"
the other Union Opera production
in December of 1908, and General
Chairman of the "Koanzaland" ex-
travaganza in 1909 as well as a
"chorus girl" in the first show in
1908.
A pioneer in founding the "U"
opera club, the Mimes, Kapp and
several other Union men got to-
gether while working on the
latter two operas to discuss
forming a club.
When Kapp was General Chair-
man of "Koanzaland" the Union
sent him on a trip to visit other
opera organizations such as the
Black Friars at the University of
Chicago and the Triangle Club at
Princeton.
"Our conversations didn't get
very far," said Kapp, "because the
activities of our Senior year in-
terfered no end."
Although the Mimes organiza-
tion did not become a reality while
Kapp was a student at the Uni-
versity, he was made a member
of the group when it was founded
in 1912.
The song, "When Night Falls
Dear," which came from the
"Michigenda" score was large-
ly responsible for the success
of the male show and the Union
Operas that have since become
a traditional event at the 'U.'
Other Mimes Alums showed in-
terest in the organization as they
attended the Mimes banquet re-
cently.
William B. Tippy took a plane

In Activities
from New York to attend the ban-
quet while Orwin Sanborn travelled
from Detroit.
Tippy appeared in the 1929 pro-
duction, "Merry Go Round," and
Sunborn played in the "Top of the
Morning" show with Thomas Dew-
ey.
Also present at the Mimes din-
ner was Lionel "Mike" Ames who
had the "female" lead on the
1923, 1924 and 1925 Union Op-
eras. The 1924 extravaganza,
"Cotton Stocking," probably the
most successful opera, toured
18 cities that year and had a sell
out at the Metropolitan Opera
House in New York City.
Many Michigan college songs
have originated from the opera.
shows such as "I'll Ne'er Forget My
College Days" from Koanzaland
and the "Fire Song" from "Con-
trary Mary" in 1913.
At first the opera club presented
short plays and skits as its function
was to further dramatics and play
productions at theiUniversity.
When the club began to confine its
efforts on satires and mimicry of
local and national personalities,
the club adopted the name of
"Mimes" taken from the word
mimicry.
The first Union opera revenues
were used to help build the pres-
ent Union building.

A new League Constitution
which would center all power in a
representative body to be known
as the Women's Senate was ex-
plained by League President Phyl-
lis Kaufman at a special Board of
Representatives meeting held yes-
terday.
Under the new plan the senate
will have final power over the pro-
jects as well as the legislation of
the League.
* * *
AS EACH member of the Senate
would automatically become a
member of an Assembly Council
or Panhellenic Association,

all women.
WHILE THE League Council
currently consists of Executive and
Administrative Board and repre-
sentatives of associated organiza-
tions, the groups will be consolida-
ted under the new plan into a Pro-
jects and Executive Board.
The Executive Board would
then be composed of officers of
the League, the presidents of As-

sembly and Panhellenic Associa-
tions, the chairman of Judiciary
Council and Interviewing and
Nominating Committee
Rifle Club
Members of the Rifle Club
will meet tomorrow and
Wednesday only on the rifle
range at WAB. Meetings will
be held at the regular times aft-
er spring vacation.

Under the present constitu-
tion the same information some-
times has to be presented at six
different meetings,
The proposed Senate which will
replace the Board of Representa-
tives will have major functions if
the new Constitution is approved,
They are the following:
1. Approve the League's budget.
2. Approve projects initiated by
the League Council.
3. Approve appointments made
by the Executive Board.
4. Refer projects to appropriate
organizations for study or solu-
tion.

"In the spring, a young man's
fancy turns to thoughts of . . .

WITH THE Grapefruit League
in full swing and every baseball
manager in the country lining up
his players for that all-importantj
opening game, the Blue team de-
cided to go along with the trend
too.
So when students see coeds
hurrying toward the League in
baseball outfits and swingingt
bats, it isn't that they've signed
up with the major leagues. It
is just the Blue team complet-
ing their plans.
Coeds and their dates attending
the Blue team dance will find
themselves in the "old baseball
park," complete with stands, bill-
boards and pop corn vendors.
Tickets, programs and publicity
will carry out the atmosphere of
this favorite spectacle.
Scroll
The Scroll Honorary Society
will hold a meeting at 2:15 p.m.
today in the' League. All mem-
bers are required to be present.

POSTERS, WHICH are begin-
ning to appear all over campus,
will inform students that this
year's Frosh Weekend is to be held
from 9 p.m. to midnight April 17
and 18 in the League Ballroom.
Each team will decorate one
half of the room so that couples
attending each night will have
an opportunity to see all decor-
ations, regardless of which night
they attend.
Ted Smith and his orchestra is
slated to play both nights.
Dressy dresses and heels will be
in order for women attending
these annual boy-bid dances.
Tickets are $1.50 a couple for
