sistance from the activities

destitute students, will sponsor
"WUS-Capade," a carnival Friday,
November 20 in Lane Hall.
Organizations all over campuses
are being urged to put up booths
for the vent, which is similar to
Michigras on a smaller scale.
Such things as refreshment
booths and chance games are in-

ANOTHER EVENT in this year's
intensified campaign will be a
bucket drive scheduled for Oct.
28. One of the groups that has
shown a great interest in WUS
projects is the Sociological De-
partment which has volunteered
to take over a bucket for the drive.
Proceeds from these and other
projects are used for such things
as building tuberculosis sanitor-
iums and health clinics, and sup-

and his orchestra will provide the
downbeat for couples attending the'
traditional dance, while the Hal-
lowe'en theme will prevail in the!
decorations and programs.
Although the dance will not1
be formal, coeds will have a
chance to show-off their best
"dressy" dresses.
Claude Thornhill, who was fea-
tured at the Homecoming Dance
in 1950, has a life of musical ex-
perience behind him. At the age of
six he gave his first recital, and
from that time on he has devoted
all his time and effort to music.

ACCORDING to publicity chair-
man Bob Apple, Thornhill's music
is planned to appeal to almost
everyone. He plays the latest
numbers, as well as the best of
the hot and jumping music.
In 1951, "Football Fantasy"
was chosen as the theme of the
annual dance. Three - dimen-
sional figures, banners, cutouts
and streamers carried out this
idea. That year couples danc-

THE BIG weekend was first in-

with the Varsity.
The original of the traditional

any house decorations back in

less deadlocks.

FOLLOWING the hockey and
tennis matches all the participants
got together for an informal tea
in the lounge of the Women's
Athletic Building.
Both managers, Miss Wester--
lund, and Joan Hyman of the
Tennis Club felt the intercol-
legiate matches were highly suc-
cessful and expressed a desire to
meet the teams once again in
the near future.
Any coed interested in these
sports may still join the WAA or-
ganizations and take part in the
group's remaining activities.

Welcome, Engineering alumni and
industrialists to the University of Michigan.
May the 100th Anniversary be one of the
most profitable and enjoyable and may it
continue, as always, through teamwork.
Puzzling ... when you meet someone
who thinks a quality store deals only in
high priced apparel. We think so too, because
you see everybody can afford to shop at Hutzel's.
