laughter.
TABLES COVERED with red

room for those who like to sit and
listen while the more energetic
"shake a leg" on the dance floor.

organization and the organizers
of the Round.up Room Club are
all experienced in the musical
field.
The leader of the combo is
Trombonist Ted Smith, who led
his own band on the University
campus for over four years. His
band appeared in many major
events here including Gulantics,
Sophomore Cabaret, and Frosh
Weekend.
CHUCK STAUFFER, alto saxo-
phone, has played professionally
with several eastern name bands.
On the piano is Don Shetler,
a teacher of instrumental music
in Ann Arbor, who has been a
musical director in radio for
three years and has played on
college campuses in nine states.
Ed Skidmore was a former bass-
ist with the Bob Elliot band, and
he played with the Frank Tinker
band at the Union.
ROUNDING UP the "Five Aces"
is Fred Steinbaugh, the man on
the drums. Fred formerly played
with the Don Wyant combo, and
appeared in the Gulantics show
at Hill Auditorium.
Carrying out the theme of
the Round-up Room, the band
members will wear red and
white checkered shirts with
black string ties.
According to Smith, the music
will vary each week but all of the
numbers will feature a "style of
modern dance music that every-
one will enjoy." Several of these
numbers will include unison vocal
renditions.
Students who want to spend an
informal evening or casual date
attending some good entertain-
ment are invited to make the
Round-up sessions a regular date.
Wearables may be anything from
bobby socks to hose.
The "Five Aces" will be on hand
to play music every Friday night
Admission to their "night club"
will be 50 cents and refreshments
will be sold at the snack bar.
League Council
The League Council will
meet at 4 p.m. today in the
League. All members are re-
quested to be there.

Rival Unions
Plan Dance
AfterGame
Golden Rule To Rule;
Shepard, Jazz Combo
To Set Mood at Ball
With the kick-off of the Univer-
sity's first football game on Satur-
day, the Union will kick-off its
social season with Golden Rule
Ball from 9 p.m. to midnight Sat-
urday in the Union Ballroom.
All rivalry will cease when Mich-
igan spreads the welcome mat out
to Michigan State students as
two Unions from the rival schools
join together to sponsor the tra-
ditional dance.
* * 4
THE DANCE is intended to pro-
mote good feeling between the
two schools with the "Golden
Rule" serving as theme for the
event.
Keeping this rule in mind the
Union men plan to harmonious-
ly wave banners and pennants
representing both schools as the
maise and blue mix with the
green and white.
This is the third consecutive
year that the Golden Rule ball
has been staged. When the joint
dance was originally planned
skeptics doubted whether a peace-
ful atmosphere could prevail aft-
er the battle on the football field
but only friendship reigned on the
dance floor.
Clare Shepard's band, featur-
ing a woman vocalist, will play in
the main ballroom while on the
third floor of the Union the Ann
Arbor Alley Cats will give out with
hot dixieland jazz for the more
strenuous dancers.

Wom-en FaceHousing Problem

With the increase in the number
of freshman women at the Univer-
sity this year, there has been a
housing problem which has been
duplicated at pther universities in
the country.
The University was able to house
all the women on campus, due to
increased housing facilities and
temporary housing which was set
up.
WITH THE ADDITION of two
houses of East Quadrangle to the
list of women's housing, there are
now 12 dormitories on campus and
a total of 16 houses in these dorms.
Last Sept. Victor Vaughan
IHouse was opened to women stu-
dents. This Sept. Tyler House of
East Quardangle was turned
into a house for graduate wom-
en, and Prescott House into a
residence for freshman women.
Even with these increased facil-
ities, 120 women were placed in
temporary housing when they ar-
rived at the University.

Couzens and in addition there are
about 30 non-nursing students liv-

Henderson and Cheever which
have very few, all of the dorms
have about 45 to 50 per cent fresh-
men.

set up in Mosher, Jordan,

During Orientation Week, wom-

The increase in number of fresh-
man women is not restricted to
the University. The picture is be-
ing repeated at the University of
Minnesota, the University of Wis-
consin and the University of Illi-
nois.
Other universities with a larg-
er than usual freshman women
class are the University of Indiana
and the Ohio State University.
One university was unable to
house their women students on
campus and finally placed them
inethehomes of people living in
Another university renovated a
dormitory which had not been
used for several terms and placed
many new women there, and there
still was an overflow.
