it can be displayed at the dance.
Carrying on with a project be-
gun two years ago, members of
Mortarboard, national honorary
for senior women, plan to complete
the "living memorial" to Dean
Alice C. Lloyd.
This memorial is in the form of
a drama collection which is housed
in the League Library. It is intend-
ed to be used as a source of en-
tertainment and relaxation for all
women on campus and is actually
their project, merely being spon-
sored by Mortarboard.
Because of Dean Lloyd's intense
interest in drama and literature,
the project decided upon in her
honor was the drama collection.
Books for the collection were,
purchased this summer by the
committee, who spent $198 on
books at the time. However much
more is needed to continue toward
the goal, stated Grace Fink, a
Mortarboard is now asking all
women's groups on campus to con-
tribute to the project through the
drive to begin on Dec. 10 and cul-
minate on Dec. 17.
Old books may be contributed to
the collection but it is preferred
that the groups or individuals will
give money. If this is done there
will be no danger of duplication of
Each house or group has been
left by the central committee of
Mortarboard to organize the drive
as best fits their time and plans.
Women will visit each housing
group on Wed., Dec. 17 to collect'

The history of this tradition-

THE CHRISTMAS ball in 1940
was highlighted by entertainment
from dancers at the "Club Wol-
verine," the name given to the
dance. A ten foot Santa Claus kept
a watchful eye over all the night
Not one but two large Santas
presided over the 1941 dance.
To add to the suspense, the dec-
orations were kept secret until
the couples arrived at the ball.
In 1942, half of the admission
price was in the form of War Sav-
ings Stamps which were made up
into corsages and presented to the
coeds attending the dance.
THE ENTIRE proceeds of the
Christmas formal in 1943 were do-
nated to the Bomber Scholarship
Fund, established to help men and
women in the armed forces to re-
turn to the University and com-
plete their education 4fter the war.
An introduction of a new
song written by a University
student entitled "Too Late"
sparked the yuletide dance in
The University celebrated
"Peace on Earth" at the Christmas
formal in 1945. This was the first
all-out campus dance held fol-
lowing the war.
THE INCREASED enrollment in
1946 caused the dance to run for
two nights for the first time in
Union history. That year the dance
was planned around the theme of
Jack and the Beanstalk in-
vaded the Union 'in 1948 in the
form of a grotesque giant which
stood watch throughout the eve-
ning behind the bandstand.
Jack's eyes were lighted up to
indicate his merriment at seeing
such a gala sight. Beanstalks were
placed so that they came creeping
up the stairway into the ballroom.

HUGE Christmas trees, a large
artificial fireplace and recorded
Christmas carols added to the hol-

of Santa arriving at the ballroom
was set up in front of the Union.

orchestra will be on hand to sera-

It is not too early to think of the extra special Christmas gift for
your "first-lady." We should like to suggest something "special" ,.
a gift from your jeweler. We have many suggestions, but to mention only
a few, we are featuring a very nice assortment of dinner rings, birthstone
fashions in some of the year's most popular colors; amethyst, garnet,
and cultured pearl.
Forgive us if we sound boastful, but we would like to tell you we
have made an effort to bring to you choice stone rings and styled in a host
of original designs. From the most traditional solitaire stone rings to
the very different conversational pieces you will find our rings very distinct.
