ISA To Sponsor
All-Nation Picnic1
Saturdayat Arb
In line with the program of in-
ter-cultural activities, the Inter-
national Student Association will
sponsor a picnic from noon until
6 p.m. Saturday in the Arboretum.
An "all-nation get-together on
the grass-root level," the 'outing
will feature outdoor games from
many different countries. The var-
ious nationality groups, members
of the ISA, will explain the acti-
vities typical of their respective
lands.
Students interested in attending
the picnic may obtain tickets, at $1
per person, at the International
Center. The price for the outing,
which is open to everyone on cam-
pus, includes transportation, as
well as refreshments.
The group will meet at noon
Saturday at the Center and pro-
ceed from there to the Arb.
The committee in charge of ar-
rangements urges campus partici-
pation, stressing that this is an
excellent opportunity for students
to meet their classmates from
other countries on an informal
basis.

Judging the eliminations will
be Miss Thelma Tervis, Mr. Ben-
ning Derter and Prof. Philip
Dewey of the music school.
The tradition which has devel-
oped into IFC Sing had its begin-
ning in 1935, when the IFC, ROTC
band and Varsity Glee Club col-
laborated in presenting an "all-
campus sing" with no prizes
awarded.
THE FOLLOWING year, the
practice of holding musical com-
petition was started, with Theta
Delta Chi winning the first tro-
phy.
The other pre-war years found
Acacia, Beta Theta Pi, Alpha
Sigma Phi, Theta Xi and Kappa
S i g m a successively bringing
home the proverbial "bacon." }
A five-year moratorium was de-'
clared during the war years, but
the Sing re-emerged in 1946 with
new vigor.
SIGMA PHI EPSILON took the
first post-war loving cup, with Phi
Delta Theta, Sigma Alpha Epsi-
lon and Lambda Chi Alpha war-
bling to victory the next three
years.
In 1950, Sigma Phi Epsilon be-
came the first house to win a
second time and the tradition
was again broken when Delta
Tau Delta batted a thousand
with judges for the past two
years.
In keeping with tradition, vari-
ous sororities will sponsor singing
groups at the Sing again this year
and will hopefully cheer them on
to victory. '
The Sing on May 8 is open to
the public and there will be no
admission charged.
Banquet
The Oberlin Alumni Club will
hold its annual banquet at 6.30
p.m. Monday in the First Me-
thodist Church. Reservations
should be made by tomorrow
with Mrs. Robert Crossley at
2-8732 or University extension
375.

COFFEE CUP COOPERATION:
Exchange Dinner System
To Continue in Residences

By JOY STANLEAj
Life on a Men's Glee Club tour
is not as easy as one might sup-
pose. Hanging over each member's
head is the possibility of being
awarded a trophy given to "that
member of the Glee Club that
makes the most atrocious blund-
er at each public appearance of
the Club."
So reads the inscription on the
trophy, a cup made of two fun-
nels with two large spoons as
handles. The gift of the cup is the:
plight of any man committing the
biggest blunder. Recipients have
ranged from the lowest member of
the group to Philip Duey, director
of the Glee Club.
- + *
AN INCIDENT during Mr.
Duey's first year at the University
warranted the title of "the most
atrocious blunder." The Glee Club
was journeying to Buffalo to pre-
sent a concert.
Since no programs had been
printed, Mr. Duey was announc-
ing the numbers. The Glee Club
was singing a group of Michigan
songs and Mr. Duey, turning to
the audience, announced that
they would sing the Michigan
Alma Mater. Then he forgot the
title. He just couldn't remember
the title of the "Yellow and
Blue."
Finding a receiver for the tro-
phy this year will prove a difficult
problem because the tour went off
without a flaw. The Glee Club was
warmly received by packed aud-
iences.
** *
TRAVELING by railroad for the
first time since the twenties the
Glee Club sang in Pittsburgh, Phil-
adelphia and Garden City, Long
Island.

However, the climax of the
tour came the last Sunday when
the Glee Club performed at
Towne Hall and on the Ed Sulli-
van Show.
The Glee Club scored a triumph
at Towne Hall. An invitation for a
repeat performance next year was
extended by the manager, who
said that this was the finest glee
club he had heard in Towne Hall.
* * *
THE MEN were especially proud
when the help at Towne Hall, who
have heard numerous celebrities,
gave them an enthusiastic re-
sponse.

The new individual exchange
dinner system between quad-
rangles and dormitories, which
was started last Thursday and
Sunday, will continue this week.
One change will be instituted.
The guests, instead of hosts, will
be in charge of picking up the
guest ticket upon arrival for din-
ner. This is done by showing an
identification card and a meal
ticket at the desk.
Each couple must arrange the
exchange by Wednesday noon for
the Thursday dinner and by Fri-
day noon for the Sunday meal.
This can be done through a co-
ordinator in each residence hall,
who is in charge of keeping an
even exchange between quads and
dorms.
Both persons must sign a regis-
tration book by these deadlines at
the desks of their respective dor-
mitories.I
It is stressed that couples make
their date well in advance in order
to be among the first to sign. If:
more coeds from a dorm sign up

than men, the latest signers will
not be issued meal tickets.
If couples find they cannot go,
they are asked to cross their names
off the registration book before
the deadline date or get a substi-
tute.
East Quadrangle and Martha
Cook Building are not participat-
ing in the plan.
About 50 persons exchanged for
the Thursday meal, estimated Tom
Bleha, chairman of the new sys-
tem.
"The plan is working about as
it was expected, but we want more
people to participate," he said.
Bleha and Norman Zilber work-
ed with Leonard A. Schaadt, busi-I
ness manager of the residence hallsI
to make the arrangements. I
