ing dance are priced at $3.60
per couple.
According to ticket chairman
Lee Abrams, ticket sales are go-
ing very well, in spite of the poor
weather. Students are urged to

to avoid the last minute rush.
'U' Calendars
t Aid in remembering dates-the
social as well as the calendar var-
iety-will be provided to students
purchasing desk calendars, which
will go on sale in women's resi-
dences today.
These calendars, published by
the Alumni Council and sold by
Y the Women's Athletic Association,
will be available for the price of
75 cents.
The sale of these "date" books
will continue until the supply is
gone. Members of the WAA board
will contact all the houses.
Covering the period between
January, 1954, to December of the
same year, the calendar has the
traditional yellow and blue cover.
Pictures of familiar campus scenes
are interspersed with the -actual
calendar pages.
Those pages allow space below
each date for writing down as-
signments, appointments and spec-
ial events.
Many coeds have, in past years,
used the calendars for a diary, to
keep a record of their college life.
Any students not contacted who
would like to purchase one of the
calendars may call Margaret Pen-
ney, 2-3153.
Profits; from the sale will be
used by the WAA Board for its
many projects. Seventeen sports
clubs are sponsored by the WAA,
many of which welcome both men
and women to membership.
This fall the group sponsored a
football clinic for coeds to enable
them to understand better .the

In ardition, the Association an-
nually presents Lantern Night, all-
campus women's sing honoring
senior women.

LAST YEAR there was a long
line at the entrance on the night
of the dance.
Pennsylvania students have
been notified of the dance
through their newspaper. Uni-
versity students expecting guests
from either Pennsylvania or
elsewhere are urged to buy tick-
ets early for them.
Students are also reminded to
tell guests planning to attend the
dance that Black Cat Ball is not

and heels will be in order.

coming Dance, "Autumn Maize,"
which featured an Indian Sum-
mer theme.

strains of music by Elliot Lawr-
ence and his orchestra at "Football
Fantasy." Decorations that year
were based on a Halloween and
football theme, featuring three-
dimensional figures, numerous cut-
outs, banners and streamers.
Last year in order to secure a
name band the Homecoming
Dance, "Autumn Nocturne," was
postponed until a week after

his orchestra provided music for
the dancers.
