Course open
In Recreation
To AlICoeds
Students To Receive
Leadership Training
From Phys. Ed. Class
Prospective camp counselors,
playground directors and teachers
who are interested in receiving
practical experience, are offered
opportunities to enroll in the
Physical Education Department's
course in Recreational Leadership.
The course is open to any stu-
dent. Although no credit is given
for upperclassmen, freshmen may
fulfill their Physical Education re-
Any coed may enter the course
by securing an application blank
from Room 15 in Barbour Gym,
filling it out, and returning it by
January 16.
Plans for the course, which will
be offered from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
every Friday afternoon during the
semester, include both theoretical
and practical training situations.
On the theoretical side the class
will discuss techniques and meth-
ods to be used in planning games
and working with arts and crafts.
Keeping these procedures in
mind each member will prepare a
program for one of the meetings
planning such activities as a read-
ing of suitable childrens stories,
playing of campfire games and
construction leather and metal
Near the end of the semester
the students will be given an op-
portunity to put these theoretical
procedures into practice. A typi-
cal camping experience will be
simulated by the group for the
purpose of providing an actual
training situation.
At the, successful completion of
the course a certificate will be
awarded showing that the student
is equipped to leadrdifferent types
of recreational programs. With
the demand for trained leaders
increasing every year, this' course
prepares coeds with specific skills
in handling children.
Using the theoretical and prac-
tical experience gained in the
course many coeds have found
this training program invaluable
in securing jobs.
Besides this specialized course
in Recreational Leadership, the
Physical Education Department
offers many other activities which
will satisfy the required program
for entering Freshmen.
In the Fall students may take
part in such activities as Arch-
ery, field hockey, outing, golf,
swimming, riding, badminon, bas-
ketball, fencing, figure skating
and numerous other individual
and team sports.
Besides these regular classes,
there is also the opportunity in
the spring to participate in La-

Soph Cab 'Music Heaven'
To Feature Booths,_Games

Booths at this year's Sophomore
Cabaret, which will be presented
February 13 and 14 at the League,
will be in keeping with the theme,
"Music Heaven," according to Mir-
iam Buck, booths chairman.
The booths, which will be lo-
cated in the Vandenburg and Hus-
sey Rooms and the Concourse on
the second floor of the League,
will include many types of skill-
testing games.
S* *
AMONG THEM are "Test Your
Perfect Pitch," a ring-toss game,
and "Get On Key with Three
Sharps," a dart game.
A grab-bag game entitled
"Find the Lost Chord," a foot-
ball guessing game, %Who's
Playing Second Fiddler for the
Wolverines?" and the game of
Musical Chairs will also be fea-
A Laughograph machine will
also be on hand to chart the laugh-
ter of those attending the Cab-
aret., From the graphs of their
laughter couples may learn their
PRIZES WILL BE awarded at
all booths, and a door prize will
be presented to the person who
%guesses the correct number of
"beets" in a measure.
For those who wish to dance
after visiting the various booths,
Paul Root's orchestra will fur-
nish smooth dance music in the
League Ballroom, which will be
decorated as Music Heaven. A
vibraharp, which adds a mellow
quality to musical tones, is fea-
tured in Root's group.

The Ann Arbor Alleycats will
be on hand in the Michigan Room
to play jazz numbers, Charlestons
and polkas for couples who prefer
a more lively type of music.
IN THE LYDIA Mendelsohn
Theatre, the floorshow, "The Lost
Chord in Music Heaven," will deal
with the plight of Pizzicato, a de-
linquent sixteenth-note, who
yearns to be a jazz note against his
parent's wishes. ,
Proceeds from the production
will be used to furnish the Music
Room in the League. Soph Cab
will be the first organization to
donate to the room, and members
of the central committee will help
choose the furniture for it.
Housing Needed
In Private Homes
For 'U" Women
Ann Arbor residents living near
campus who would be interested
in housing women students next
semester are urged to contact
Mrs. Leslie in the Dean of Wom-
en's Office.
It is hoped that situations may
be worked out whereby women
can perform light household tasks
or care for children in the homes
in which they live in exchange
for board and room.
Townspeople who wish to house
coeds may get in touch with Mrs.
Leslie by calling 3-1511, Ext. 341.

Final plans for decorations for
the annual J-Hop, 'Grande Baro-
que to be held from 9 p.m. to 3
a.m. Friday., Feb. 6 at the Intra-
mural Building have been laid by
the central'committee.
The element of surprise and
mystery still shrouds part of the
ideas to be seen at the dance since
the committee has decided not to
reveal their complete plans.
IN KEEPING with the theme,
part of the favors to be given to
couples on the night of the dance
will be masks for dancers to wear
in order to turn the dance into a
masked ball.
A permanent momento of the
dance will also be given to each
coed but the exact nature of the
favor will not be disclosed until
the night of the dance.
The general theme of the dance,
"Grande Baroque," will be car-
ried out in the decorations. The
ballroom will be fashioned like
the court of Louis XIV of France.
YARDS OF ROSE drapes in dif-
ferent shades will lend to the re-
gal atmosphere as will the indirect
lighting which is planned to sim-
ulate the soft glow of the candles
used during that period in history.
The style of art, architecture
and music developed during the
sixteenth to eighteenth cen-
turies has been termed the Bar-
oque period by historians and it

is from this that the theme of
the J-Hop has been drawn.
The bands chosen to provide the
music for the dance are Tommy
Dorsey and Ralph Marterie. Ac-
cording to custom the two bands
will alternate at the bandstand to
give continuous and varied music
to the couples attending the dance.
MARTERIE and his band have
risen to sudden heights in the mu-
sical world on the basis of his rec-
ordings. The bands first record-
ings appeared in 1949.
Trumpet playing Marterie,
dubbed "The Man Born for the
Horn" is known to popular mu-
sic fans through his recordings
and radio programs.
The band has claim to several
hundred arrangements in their li-
brary so that their knowledge of
material is encyclopedic, accord-
ing to the leader.
Marterie's band is made up of four
trombones, five trumpets, hfive
reeds, three rhythms, and both a
man and woman vocalist.
Badminton Club
Badminton Club members
will not meet today. Announce-
ment of the reorganizational
date of the club will be made
in the Daily early next semes-

Ralph Marterie sums up the
band's style by saying, "The
public wants good, sweet, and
tastefully arranged music with
a danceable beat-and that's
what my band is prepared to
give them."
The Sentimental Gentleman,
Tommy Dorsey, is a veteran of
the bandstand and has appeared
at several campus dances includ-
ing 'Autumn Nocturne' last fall.
. ,*
THE DORSEY name has been
in the "major leagues" since 1934
when Tommy and his brother
formed a bigtime band of their
Many claim that the Dorsey
band has had more influence
than any other in determining
the song favorites of the nation
via the recording business.
The J-Hop central committee
has prepared a yellow folder of
J-Hop rules which has been mailed
to the various housing groups on
One regulation the committee
wants to stress is the fact that
furniture for the booths may be
taken into the sports building
only between the hours of 9 a.m.
and 12 noon on Friday, February
Such furniture must be removed
by Saturday, February 7, between
the hours of 8 a.m. and 12 noon.
