Union, Barristers To Hold Dances.

* * * *

Yuletide Balls
To Be Slated
For Saturday
Wig and Robe.-
The legend of "Wig and Robe"
will again come to life at the Bar-
risters' all campus formal dance
from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday in
the League Ballroom.
The dance is an all campus af-
fair and tickets may be purchased
for $2.75 from 9 a.m. to noon or 1
to 3 p.m. at Hutchins Hall or from
any Barrister. If bought at the
door, the charge will be $3.
Rex Smith and his band will
again be on tap to greet all danc-
ing couples.
It seems that back in the days
before the blue laws, a promising
law student, Tommy Tortfeasor,
met with a group of his fellows at
the Orient, the local tavern.
Meditating over his mug of beer,
Tommy decided that 49 years
without a break was enough.
Today, 49 years after this his-
toric meeting the modern counter-
part of these founding fathers
have come to be called the Bar-
risters Society. Wig and Robe is
a descendant of their first dance.
With this background in mind,
the Barristers are preparing to
continue the tradition Saturday
night In the League.
The Christmas theme will be
brought out by Christmas trees in
the raw centered around a deco-
rated one, while the figure of a
Chancellor, the traditional sym-
bol of the Barristers Society which
has been passed down from one
class to another, will reign over
the whole affair.

be on hand at the Union's tradi-
tional Christmas formal, "Santa's
Fantasy," from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.
