ed. One or two months of camp
usually cannot correct seven to
14 years of trouble, but it can
start something the agencies
can finish.
The unique feature is that the
children are in the camp surround-
ings 24 hours a day. Equipment
and instruction in all kinds of
sports are provided including sail-
ing, fishing, swimming, and crafts.
A planned, year-around socio-
educational program for the boys
is provided by the camp and the
sponsoring organization. By get-
ting away from the home and giv-
ing each child a fresh start the
counselors can find his assets, ca-
pabilities an dinterests.
AT THE END of the summer,
the staff prepares a comprehen-
sive report, sometimes number-
ing 40 pages on each boy's prob-
lems, his progress and an analy-
sis of his difficulties.

FRESH AIR CAMPERS-These two boys are typical of the 240
under-privileged children from all over the state who are sent to
the University Fresh Air Camp every summer. Part of the funds
are paid by donations from students, professors and townspeople
at the annual Tag Day, which will be held Friday.



City Counselor's Positions

Law Society
Will Present
Crease Ball
Barristers, Engineers
To Renew Old Rivalry
At Traditional Dance
Shelving heavy books to have a
final fling before the exam period
arrives, the Barristers, senior hon-
orary society, will present their
annual Crease Ball for law stu-
dents and the entire campus from
9:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday in the
Union Ballroom.
CreasedBall received its name
from Old English times when
lawyers, then called barristers,
were forced to struggle for a liv-
With near-empty pockets, the
struggling barristers walked the
streets in torn, unkempt colthes.
Because of this serious lack of
funds, the men of law could afford
to have their trousers pressed only
once a year for their annual par-
ty. Thus Crease Ball evolved. '
The ball hag a long, tradition-
filled history, based on the rival-
ry between lawyers and engineers
which began on campus many
years ago. For the past few years
the lawyers have victoriously
gained possession of the engineers'
giant slide rules and displayed
them at Crease Ball.
Spring has invaded the lawyers'
minds, for this year their decora-
tions will center around ideas as-
sociated with the month of May.
Couples will dance to the music
of Earle Pearson and his 7-piece
combo. Pearson does arranging
for the Novelaires and Shep
Fields' orchestra and has played
with Billy Butterfiield's band.
Those attending the dance will
receive a copy of the Raw Review,
a humorous publication which is
one of the historical traditions of
the law school's formal. The Raw
Review is a take-off on the Michi-
gan Law Review in which profes-
sors give their views on cases and

to give the girls ideas for their

A series of lectures is given to

Ruth Rossner, '55, who was a
Girl's State delegate a few years
ago, said "the most important
thing for a counselor to be is col-
legiate." She went on to say that
most of the girls will be going to

SALLY BENNETT, Mu '53, who
was a city counselor last year, said
the counselors have organized a
secret society called the "Quarter-
wit Club." "You need no qualifi-
cations to be initiated except be-
ing a counselor, and there are no
dues, duties, or functions," Miss
Bennett explained.
There are openings for 15 wo-
men to act as city counselors
for the girls. Counselors will be
housed in Stockwell, and will
be paid room and board and
$25 for the two-week session.
Three upper class or graduate
women are also needed to act as
counselors for the county units.
These advisors will also live in

A tradition started many years1
ago will once again be renewed
w hen the Women's Athletic Asso-
ciation presents the 40th Lantern
Night program Monday, May 11 at
Hill Auditorium.
In the past the main portion of
the program consisted of the an-
nual Lantern Night Sing. At this
time choral groups from various
women's groups on campus com-
peted for the first place cup.
* * *
THE TROPHY was awarded to
the choir giving the best perform-
ance based on interpretation and
artistic effect, intonation, accur-
acy, rhythm, tone diction, presen-
tation and appearance.
Throughout the years Lantern
Nigit has honored graduating
senior women.
The program usually started
with a parade lead by the Michi-
gan Marching Band to Hill Audi-
torium. Headed by campus leaders
the seniors, juniors, sophomores
and freshmen were distinguished
by wearing different color ribbons.
AT THE END of the evening's
entertainment awards were pre-
sented to dormitories, sororities
and League Houses for participa-
tion in sport activities.
These Lantern Night festivi-
ties are an outgrowth of a pro-
gram which began in 1913.
At that time all coeds took part
in races and various other events
at a women's field day. Later each
"class presented skits.
THE FIRST procession took
place around Palmer Field in
1932 With this parade came the
tradition of Japanese lanterns and
hoops and from this the name,
Lantern Night, originated.
At that time the seniors car-
