Black Cat Will Reign
At Homecoming Dance

In order to find a name for the
Black Cat, the committee in
charge of Black Cat Ball, this
year's homecoming dance to be
held from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Satur-
day in the Intramural Building is
sponsoring a contest to select just
the right title.
Each student purchasing a tick-
et for the dance will be given an
opportunity to make a suggestion.
The committee will select the win-
ning name and then will award
a prize to its contributor during
the homecoming dance. The na-
ture of the prize is to be a secret
until then.
Black Cat Ball was chosen as
the title for this year's home-
coming dance last week during a
meeting of the Student Legis-
lature appointed Homecoming
Selected in order to give the3
dance a flavor of Halloween since
it falls on the day when spooks:
and jack-o'lanterns reign, the
committee also felt that the sound
of the name puts the annual dance;
on a more informal level.;
In evidence on all publicity, the9
Black Cat himiself is the official

symbol of the dance. He is pictured
wearing a "Michigan" helmet and
carrying a football.
Thus the Halloween theme is
tied in with the football spirit,
which also prevails at this time
of year.
Done as a print-making class
project, the posters were drawn by
Bill Whittingham, '54A&D, and
lettered by Ken Rice, '54 A&D.
With decorations and programs
following the Halloween theme,
the dance will feature the music
of Claude Thornhill and his or-
Awarding of trophies for
homecoming displays will high-

the committee, "top-flight" en-
tertainment has also been plan-
As in previous years, a photog-
rapher will be on hand to take
pictures of couples attending the
annual dance.
Tickets for Black Cat Ball, pric-
ed at $3.60 per couple, will be
available all this week from 9
a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Admin-

IN THE YEARS before and in-
cluding 1945, Panhel Ball was
sponsored jointly by both Pan-
hellenic and Assembly. Held in the
spring in the Intra-mural Build-
ing, the dance was usually so
crowded that the Central Commit-"-
tee made plans to have an "Over-
flow" dance in the League.'
Dance theme in 1945 was
"Heavenly Daze" with Raymond
Scott playing at the IM build-
ing and Billy Munday supply-
ing the music for couples at the
"Overflow" dance.
Because of the increased enroll-
ment and the difficulty in holding °
this overflow dance, the following .
year Panhellenic and Assembly de-
cided to separate their dances.:
"OPEN SESAME," the 1946 Pan-
hel Ball, was held in the fall. The
site of the dance was still the IM
Building and Sonny Dunham and1
his orchestra were featured. Inde-
pendents were invited to the dance
although it was held primarily for
Stan Kenton supplied the
music for "Elysian Eve" in 1947
and the theme was Greek, com-
plete with pillars and the Par-
thenon. Blue and silver sophisti-
cation was the motif for "Mood
Indigo" in 1948 and Will Os-
borne's orchestra was featured.}

d to hold the dance
ue. The theme was
Manhattan" com-
rew York skyline, the
seshoe and Gay Cla-

ridge's orchestra. Because of lim-
ited space, the dance was open
only to affiliated women and men.
In 1951, Panhel Ball was
again opened to "Independents,'
although "Musical Moods" was
held in the League. Decorations
carried out the theme by hav-
ing one room decorated in jazz
style another in a semi-classi-
cal tone, and the third "blues"
"Wonderland"in 1951 was high-
lighted by Alice's escapades with
the pink-eyed White Rabbit. Tra-

ditionally each sorority has a spe-
cific room in which to gather and
chat informally. These were each
demorated by a playing card from
the Queen's Court.
Two rooms in the League were
open for dancing Red Harper and
his orchestra were featured in the
ballroom and Paul McDonough's
combo fulfilled requests in one of
the second floor rooms.
This year Panhel Ball is open
to all affiliated men and women.
Tickets will be sold by one mem-
ber of each sorority at $3 a couple.
