'SeniorBall Prevue Given on Diag!
All Students Invited
4, Gorgeous dancing girls dressed
in Arabian costumes and a hot
Dix~ie band greeted students yes-
terday at noon as they walked
across the diag.
It looked like exam fever had
made a few students delerious un-
til it was noted that the hoochi-
koochi girls were carrying a sign,
and the hot Dixie music issued
from the horns and drums of var-
ious sundry members of the Fiji
Marching Band, Local 707.
THE SIGN the girls carried was
advertising "Abstract Aires," the
4 83rd Senior Ball to be held from
9:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday in the
Paul McDonough's band will
provide the music. Ed Ravens-
croft, this year's Gulantics win-
ner, will play a drum solo as in-
Other attractions are an out-
door terrace for tired dancers and
refreshments, namely lemonade,
which will be served sometime dur-
ing the evening.
MC DONOUGH has played for
more than 30 campus events this
year, according to Louis Zako,
f co-chairman of the dance.
Zako also said that originally
the Committee had planned to
hold "Abstract Aires" May 29th,
the day before Memorial Day.
t' At that time the University had
not announced the change of the
exam schedule yet and the com-
mittee thought Senior Ball would
be a grand climax to celebrate
the last day of classes.
But the exam schedule was
w moved up and the Committee had
to do some wild scrambling to find

THE PRESIDENT'S house is
the oldest building on the campus.
It was built originally in 1841, but
has been remodeled many times
to meet the new mode of interior
deporations. With each new presi-
dent's family, the house under-
went a series of changes.
In 1869, James B. Angell de-
manded that a bathroom and
furnace be installed before he
would accept appointment. The
Board of Regents finally agreed
to install them after balking for
a short time at the terms.
When Aleander G. Ruthven be-
came the president in 1929, he
completely redecorated the house
and added the study and the plant
room to the east side of the house.
THE HATCHER'S have revised
the dwelling into a gracious home.
Done under the supervision of
Miss Helen Stafford, an interior
decorator, the redecorating and
refurnishing of the house has
made use of traditional and mo-
During their first weeks, the
Hatchers resided at the Michi-
gan Union and later attempted
to live quietly at home, amid a
confusion of painters, furniture
movers, and other workmen

While being served cookies and
tea or coffee, the guests will also
be furnished with entertainment.
In an informal atmosphere, Bob
Kerns will entertain the guests
with songs at 5 p.m.
According to the established
tradition, again housemothers and
wives of faculty members will pour
at the tea.
HOUSEMOTHERS pouring tea
and coffee will be Mrs. R. L.
Drake of Kelsey House, Mrs. Ruth
Merril of Newberry and Mrs. Leila
Vibert of Sigma Phi Epsilon.
Faculty wives who have been
basked to pour are Mrs. R. Gesell,
Mrs. Ruel Churchill, Mrs. Della
Feder, Mrs. Paul Jeserick and Mrs.
All students are urged to appear
at this last open house.
According to the committee, in
charge, it is a wonderful oppor-
tunity for the students to meet
the President and his wife and
to see the newly remodeled house.
There will be a meeting of
the League Council at 4 p.m.
tomorrow in the League. The
room number will be posted in
