MANNEQUINS, GARTERS:
SAE's Deliver Invitations
For 'Black and White Ball'

Seniors To Present 'Abstract Aires'
As Last Social Event of Semester

Intermission
Will Include
Floorshow
Swirling skirts and flashing col-
ors will set the mood for enter-
tainment during intermission at
International Ball, scheduled from
9 p.m. to 1 a.m. tomorrow in the
Union Ballroom.
Emceed by George Zotiades, the
thirty-five minute floor-show will
get underway with the "Sowa
Sowa Dance." Performed by two
members of the Philippine Michi-
gan Club, the folk dance will be
done in the costume of the island
republic.
A French song, to be rendered
by several members of the Cercle
Francais, will be next on the pro-
gram.
Following the French club's
offering, the India Students As-
sociation will present two of its
members in a "Harvest Folk
Dance." Done in traditional cos-
tume, the dance is typical of
those performed in India itself.
Emcee Zotiades next will intro-
duce Yoram Goren, who will en-
tertain the couples attending with
Israeli national songs played on
the accordion.
A national dance performed by
a member of the Japanese Stu-
dents Club will take the spotlight
next, followed by the Sociedad
Y Hispanica. Spanish music via the
guitar will be offered by this club.
Winding up the intermission
entertainment, four members
of the Ukrainian Students Club,
dressed in traditional costume,
will dance the "Tchumarotchka,"
a folk dance typical of their
country.
Upon entering the ballroom,
women attending will be given a;
light blue program tied with a
darker blue cord. A globe with the
accent on Ann Arbor and dark
blue lettering will help carry out
the world-wide theme of the
dance.
Carrying out the "Cosmopoli-
tan Night" theme of the ball,
decorations will feature scenes
from many countries, with mod-
els of Mount Fujiyama, The Eif-
fel Tower and the Taj Mahal
placed around the ballroom.
Carl Bonner and the Bon-Aires
will provide music for dancing for
couples attending the all-campus
dance.
Tickets for the ball, priced at
$3 a couple, will be on sale daily
from 1 to 5 p.m. in the Adminis-
tration Building, the Union and
the International Center. On Fri-
day ticket sales will be conducted
on the diagonal.

Mannequins and garters have
been invading the campus as invi-
tations are issued to the Sigma
Alpha Epsilon's annual "Black and
White Ball," which will be held
Saturday.
The SAE pledges have been sent
throughout the campus giving in-
vitations to coeds in sorority
hourses, dorms, league houses,
and private homes in and around
Ann Arbor.
* * *
SOME OF them were sent to De-
troit, Birmingham, Grosse Pointe,
Royal Oak and Dearborn.
The pledges have also gone
to Albion, Jackson, Toledo, Bowl-
ing Green and to Michigan State
College to present the black and
white garters.
The pledges enter the building
where they are going to give the
garters away, sing a song, and pre-
sent a mannequin's leg with a
group of garters on it to the wom-
en who are invited.
EACH COED takes one garter
and presents it at the Black and
White Ball.
Two years ago invitations to the
women were in the form of black
goldfishes in white sand.
The dance will take place at
the SAE house following a ban-
quet at the Michigan Union.
Mel Sach's Orchestra will pro-
vide the evening's music.
The pledges constructed a patio
over the Mud Bowl as a pledge
project. The music will be piped
into it for dancing and there will
also be dancing inside the house.
THE HOUSE will be decorated
in Coronation style with crowns,
robes, scepters and jewels and the
colors will be black, white and sil-
ver to carry on the old tradition.
Favors will match the decora-
tions and will represent the
crowning of Queen Elizabeth.
The tradition of the Black and
White Ball began in the last cen-
tury at the University of Alabama,
where the first SAE chapter was
