The dance, formerly known as
the Homecoming Dance, was post-
poned for a week after the other
homecoming festivities so the
committee could secure a name
band to play for the affair.
Last spring when the dance was
being planned, the committee had
a choice of getting a less-known
band to provide the music or hiring
Tommy Dorsey, who would be tra-
veling in this vicinity one week

the grounds that students would
rather hear Dorsey a week later.
Students picked Dorsey's ag-
gregation their two-to-one favor-

Later Tommy formed a band on

"Once in a While."

The origin of the traditional
homecoming displays at the Uni-
versity is so ancient that no one
knows exactly when it was begun.
There is no evidence of any house
decorations back in 1898 when the
first Homecoming game was play-
ed between the alumni and the
Trophies were awarded in 1932
for the first time when silver cups
were donated by local merchants.
Theta Xi copped the prize that

year with a display that featured
a grandstand of Michigan fans
cherring as Minnesota Gophers
were trampled into the ground.
Women had no part in the con-
test until 1937 when IFC chal-
lenged sororities to compete with
them. Kappa Alpha Theta won
the prize for the sororities with a
display showing a man with a
football for a head dancing on the
