orchestra, Paul McDonough and
his combo will play in another
room of the League second floor.
I-Hop is co-sponsored by As-
sembly Association and Inter-
House Council, but members of

make it clear that the dance is
open to the entire campus, and
affiliates are especially invited,
In 1950 when the dance was
called A-Hop, the system of hav-
ing two orchestras play for the
dance was initiated and it was
continued last year.

dance music will be satisfied.

Ted Smith and his band will be
moving Friday night to the larger
Round-Up-Room for the weekly
Friday night dance.
This move has been necessitat-
ed by the unexpected opening
night crowd of 300 students who
jammed the small recreation room
of the League last Friday night.
Conditions were very crowded,
with little room to sit or dance,
and it is hoped that the new room
will give ample space for as many
students as want to come.
The atmosphere of the "big
city night club" will still prevail
in the new setting, including soft
lights, smoke-filled air and gay
There will also be room in the
new quarters for the tables with
red and white checkered table-
clothes, for those who like to sit
and listen to the music.
Carrying out the theme of the
Round-Up Room, the band mem-
bers will continue to wear red and
white checkered shirts with black
string ties.
Music will be varied this week,
but according to Smith the num-
bers will again feature a "style of
modern dance music that every-
one will enjoy."
Members of the band have or-
ganized the Round-up Room Club,
and are all experienced in the mu-
sical field.
The leader of the combo is
trombonist Ted Smith, who led his
own band on the University cam-
pus for over four years.
Other members include Chuck
Stauffer, alto saxophonist who has
played professionally with several
eastern name bands.
Don Shetler who teaches instru-
mental music in Ann Arbor plays
piano for the newly organized
combo, and Ed Skidmore, who was
formerly with the Bob Elliot band,
plays bassist.
Rounding up the "Five Aces"

is Fred Steinbaugh, who plays the

Foreign Students
Will Hear Dean

Newly-arrived foreign students
will receive an official.welcome to
the University at 8 p.m. Saturday
in Rackham Lecture Hall.
The program will feature an ad-

by Dean Charles E. Odegaard of
the College of Literature, Science
and the Arts.
Dean Odegaard is at present at-
tending a meeting of UNESCO in
New York.
Associate Dean Sarah L. Healy
will greet the increased number of
women students from abroad.
Short talks in response will be
given by representatives of foreign
students, both those just arrived
and those previously on campus.
Following the program a recep-
tion will be held in Rackham as-
sembly Hall by Dr. Esson M. Gale,
Counselor to-Foreign Students, the
Board of Governors and the staff
of the International Center.
Refreshments will be served and
dancing will follow.

program have been designed to

MUSICAL MOOD-Don Bari and his orchestra are scheduled to

PRICE OF admission is $2.50
per couple. Besides being sold at
the door, tickets will be on sale in
Angell Hall, the League, and
men's residences.
Proceeds from the dance are
traditionally given to a chari-
table organization. In 1950 they
went to the Phoenix Project and
last year they were given to the
University's Fresh Air Camp,
which provides camping experi-
ence for underprivileged chil-
The majority of the proceeds
will be given to this dame organi-
zation again this year.

DECORATIONS for the dance
will illustrate the theme 'Blue
Horizon,' and will feature modern-
istic effects produced by black
lighting on wood and cardboard
abstract constructions.

main ballroom yarn stretched

The band will be silhouetted
against a luminous moon in
front of the dark blue back-
Hanging from the ceiling in the
center of the ballroom will be a

revolving sphere four feet in dia-
meter. Lights directed toward this
sphere and reflections from mir-
rors on its surface will illuminate
the entire dance floor.

A FOUNTAIN in another room
will set a scene in a park, and
foliage and underbrush will com-
plete the arrangement.
In 1950 the theme of the
dance was 'Moon Midst' and the
couples were transported to an
imaginary world among the
mountains of the moon. In the
center of the ballroom a rocket
ship was poised ready for take-
Last year the central committee
chose for its theme "Kick-Off"
and decorations showed scenes
familiar to all students on the
day of the big game.
The main ballroom was the sta-
dium, and bleachers were placed
along the sides of the room. From
the top of the stadium waved pen-
nants of the team's traditional
football foes.
General chairman for this
year's I-Hop is Gail Hyman, and
she will be assisted by the other
committee heads. These posts are
divided between men and women
because the dance is being co-
sponsored by two organizations.

The wanderlust has hit two for-
mer Arts Theater Club members
and they intend to do everything
but take a raft <trip down the Mis-
sissippi to satisfy it.
The couple, Jerry and Robin
Lepard, left yesterday for a two-
year trip that will take them near-
ly to the extremities of this hem-
isphere and cover a sizable chunk
of territory in between.
But wanderlust wasn't the only
inspirational force behind the mar-
athon trip. A big incentive was the
half-station wagon, half-bus Ger-
man Volkswagen which the Le-
pards bought to transport them
and 1300 pounds of equipment over
two continents.
Another factor was the philo-
sophical belief that "young people
can only travel at the wrong end
of the life span-we decided to do
it now."
Both theater people by previous
occupation, the Lepards plan to
visit other small drama groups of
the Arts Theater type with the
possibility of starting a similar
acting troupe somewhere along the
The Lepard's broad itinerary in-
cludes an enviable list of South-
western stops this winter with
Mexico and Peru furthest down on
the map, an Alaska destination in
the spring, and plenty of room for
"come what will" from then on.
Haphazard or not, the trip took
four months of practical planning.
Over half a ton of photographic
equipment, sculpturing and paint-
ing tools, living facilities includ-

ing a tent, water tank, stove and
icebox and luggage had to be fit-
ted into the five by six feet space
in the rear of the Volkswagen.
Lepard's experience as an Arts
Theater set designer helped con-
siderably when the fitting-in pro-
cess began. Though he ended up
throwing away his elaborate blut-
prints, the finished product uti-
lizes every inch of the limited
Mr. and Mrs. Lepard intend to
keep financially happy by doing
photography, writing and acting or
any other sort of non-artistic work
that comes up.
One night's experience has prov-
en that their curious Volkswagen
will bear close watching. Camped
on local ground Monday night, the
big blue vehicle came close to slip-
ping into one of the less scenic
spots on their route-the Huron
But theater people have a theory
that a poor last dress rehearsal
doesn't necessarily result in a di-
sastrous performance. With this
in mind, the Lepards set out yes.-
terday on the longest run of their
respective careers.
