Dance Plans
Will Include
Date Bureau
Committee To Help
Men Obtain Partners
For International Ball
Plans for International Ball in-
clude all the usual committees:
publicity, floorshow and decora-
tions, but in addition, feature an
unusual twist, a Date Bureau.
Feeling that many foreign men
on campus have not had the op-
portunity to meet other students
and yet would like to attend the
dance, the bureau has been set up
to aid these students in obtaining
* * *
COEDS WHO would like to at-
tend the ball may take advantage
of this service too.
Men, both foreign and Am-
erican, who would like dates for
the event may turn in their
names at the International
Center or at the International
Tea. By having each person fill
out a form with pertinent in-
formation, such as age, height
and nationality, the committee,
under the direction of Connie
Pokela, hopes to match up
names satisfactorily.
The social chairmen of all wo-
men's dormitories and sororities
have been contacted and supplied
with the forms. They will contact
the women in their houses and
then return the information to
the International Center.
* * *
WOMEN interested in a date
for International Ball may thus
contact their house social chair-
man and need not go to the Cen-
Executive members of the In-
ternational Students Associa-
tion will also have the Date Bu-
reau forms.
After receiving enough names,
the committee will begin to match
them up and to notify students of
the plans.
* * *
COKE DATES will be arranged
first, so that the couple may meet
each other. It is hoped that this
acquaintance will lead to a date
for the dance.
Miss Pokela urges all students
interested in obtaining a date
to go to the International Cen-
ter or contact her at 3-1511,
Ext. 2145, as soon as possible,
for there are only two weeks
until the dance.
Publicized as "one of the most
colorful dances on campus" and
"a friendly semi-formal," Inter-
national Ball will be held from 9
p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday, May 15, in
the Union Ballroom.
Tickets, at $3 per couple, are
available at the International
Center and from executive mem-
bers of the International Students
They will also be on sale at the
Administration Building and at
the Union from 1 to 5 p.m.; be-
ginning May 4.

Retailing is a fascinating field, with the
intriguing challenge of a constantly chang-

in retailing than there are men and women
to fill them. These positions are attractive
in financial reward for the imaginative

working conditions and rewarding careers
