A complete history of music, in-
cluding representative types from
each period will be presented in
the fifty-second concert by the
University Women's Choir and the
Michigan Singers at 8:30 p.m.
Sunday in Hill Auditorium.
Conducted by Prof. Maynard
Klein, the Women's Choir, made
up ci '75 select voices, will open the
chrofiological program of compo-
sitions with"Adoramus te" by Or-
landus Lassus. Lassus is a repre-
sentative of the musical style of
the late Renaissance period.
* * *
NEXT ON the program will be
"Bois Epais" by Jean Baptiste de
Lully, a composer with whom the
story of French opera and ballet
in the seventeenth century is as-
sociated. The aria was arranged
for women's voices by Deems Tay-
lor:
Performing one of the least
known of Franz Schubert's com-
positions for women's voices, the
choir will sing Serenade Op. 135.
Ruth Orr, mezzo-soprano, will
be the soloist.
Two choral songs, "The Gard-
ner" and "The Death of Trenar,"
will feature Margaret Milks ac-
companying on the harp and Niel-
sen Dalley and Robert Hicks on
the horns.

THE NEXT SONG by the choir,
"A Snow Legend" was composed
by an American, Joseph Clokey,
known principally for his choral
compositions.
Ending the half of the pro-
gram by the University Women's
Choir will be the "Dirge for Two
Veterans," a composition based
on a poem by Walt Whitman.
The music is by Harl McDonald,
well known educator and manager
of the Philadelphia Symphony Or-
chestra. He is one of the most fre-
quently performed American com-
posers.
FOLLOWING intermission, the
stage will be taken over by the
Michigan Singers, a group of se-
lect mixed voices, 34 men and 34
women.
Presenting a distinguished
choralprogram also in chono-
logical order of extremely diffi-
cult music, they will begin with
the "Gloria" by Guillermius Du-
fay, the earliest composer to be
represented in the evening's
program.
Next will be "Sanctus" from
"Missa Papae Marcelli" by Pales-
trina, whose music represents the
highly refined vocal polyphony of
the late Italian Renaissance.
THE "CANTATE DOMINO" by
Schutz will be sung next, followed
by "Rise Up My Love, My Fair
One" by Willan, an English com-
poser and organist.
"Arbolucu Te Sequeste" (Tree
of Sorrow) by Carlos Chavez,
was taken from a collection of
Spanish and Portuguese folk
music. Chavez is said to be one
of the best contemporary repre-
sentatives of the music of Mex-
ico.
Singing a work recently popu-
larized by the Robert Shaw Chor-
ale, the Michigan Singers will do
the Kyrie and Sanctus from the
Mass in G Major by Poulonc.
* * *
COMPOSERS OF the next two
selections on the program are
members of the music school fa-
culty at the University. "The
Lamb" will be sung by the Tudor
Singers, a group specializing in
contrapuntal music of the Ren-
aissance Period.'
It was written by Prof. Leslie
Bassett, an instructor in compo-
sition in the University, who was
the recipent of a Fullbright
scholarship for study abroad.
"O God, be gracious to me" from
the Pilgrim Psalms was written by
Prof. Ross Lee Finney, well-known
American composer and professor
of composition in the music school.
The "Pilgrim Psalms" are a pub-
lished collection of fifteen psalms,
set for chorus and organ by Prof.
Finney.
Ending the evening's concert,
the Michigan Singers will sing the
"Songs of Farewell" by Walt Whit-
man, the music for which was
written by Frederick Delius, a
French composer.

Red-Harper and his orchestra
will provide the musical atmos-
phere for the annual Panhel Ball,
"Wonderland," to be held from
9:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday in
the League.
Working together since 1947
when they organized as a group,
Harper and his group have toured
the country playing for high
schools and colleges. Known for
their danceable music, they'll be
featured in the ballroom.
PAUL McCONOUGH'S combo
will specialize in fulfilling requests
of popular hits in one of the sec-
ond floor rooms off the Concourse.
Each room off the Concourse
which will be decorated by mem-
bers of the sororities will carry
out the "Alice in Wonderland"
theme. These rooms will be us-
ed as card rooms and as a place
to gather to chat informally.
Tickets for the dance are being
sold from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and
from 1:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the
League Undergraduate Office.
They may be purchased for $3
along with carnation boutonnieres
which are also available for 30
cents.

BECAUSE OF the limited capa-
city of the League, Panhel Ball
this year will be open only tol
pledges, affifiated transfers, andI
active members of Panhellenic As-
sociation.
Last year was the second con-
secutive year that the tradition -
al event was held in the League,
and also the second that the
dance was open only to affiliated
women and their escorts.
Two years ago the central com-
mittee decided to give "Midnite in
Manhattan" at the League. The
experiment proved so successful
that last year's central committee
again chose the League for the
traditional Panhel Ball.
IN PREVIOUS YEARS Panhel
Ball had been given in the IM
Building. But due to the increas-
ing cost of holding the dance at
that location, the League has

ber will be posted.

again been selected as a more suit-
able location.
Originally, in the years before
and including 1945, the dance
was sponsored by both Panhel-
lenic and Assembly.
*~ * *
BECAUSE OF the difficulties in-
volved in presenting this overflow
dance, and because of the in-
creased enrollment at the Uni-
versity, Panhellenic - and Assem-
bly Board decided to give their
dances separately.
Since 1946, Panhel Ball has
been held in the fall. That year
Sonny Dunham supplied the
music for "Open Sesame."
In 1947 and 1948 Stan Kenton
and Will Osborn at the IM Build-
ing changed Panhel Ball from a
Grek theme, "Elygian Eve," to the
sophisticated silver and blue theme
of "Mood Indigo."
THE YEAR 1949 brought Ray
McKinley and his orchestra to
town to play for "Peters Panic"
which featured a circus theme.
That year marked the last that
the dance was held in the IM
Building.
Two years ago couples were

greeted by neon signs and night
clubs as they listened to Cal Clar-
idge and his orchestra play for
"Midnight, in Manhattan." Last
year Ray 6orrell and his orches-
tra set the mood with sweet, swing
and blue numbers for "Musical
Moods."
House Presidents
To HoldMeeting
All house presidents and resi-
dence directors will meet in a dis-
cussion group at 7 p.m. tommorrow
in the fourth floor alcove of the
League.
The topic under discussion will
be a possible change in policyhcon-
cerning wearing jeans in the wo-
men's residences.
The purpose of the meeting is
to air the students' views and
those of the residence directors.
There is no written law that
jeans cannot be worn anywhere.
A vote in the dormitories last
year indicated that coeds would
like some changes in the individual
house policies.
