Song stylings of Paula Martino
and the music of Claude Thorn-
hill will echo from the Intramural

a.m. tomorrow when the Student
Legislature presents "Black Cat
Ball."
Singing such numbers as "Where
or When," "Maybe Its Because"
and "Sunday Kind of Love," Miss
Martin will add variety to the in-
strumental menu to be presented
by Thornhill.
INCLUDING three trumpets,
two trombones and five men doub-
ling on sax and clarinet, Thorn-
hill's group is unusual in that it
features a french horn. The lead-
er, who also does composing and
arranging for his orchestra, will
preside at the piano.
Entering the ballroom, couples
attending the all-campus dance
will find themselves under a
false ceiling done in orange and
black crepe paper.
Presenting the same traditional
colors, the bandstand backdrop
will feature a cutout design of the
Black Cat, symbol of the dance.

of a new chapter, Sigma Phi's

Kenny's band.

which also prevails at this time
of year.
Pennsylvania students have been
notified of the dance through their
newspaper. University students ex-
pecting guests from either Pennsyl-
va'nia or elsewhere are urged to
buy tickets immediately for them.;
Tickets, priced at $3.60 per cou-
ple, will be available from 9 a.m.
to 4:30 p.m. today and from 9 a.m.
to noon tomorrow in the Admin-
istration Building and on the Diag-
onal. They will also be available
at the. door tomorrow night.

Programs will also carry out
the "spooky" atmosphere of the
dance. They will feature a white
background with the Black Cat
super-imposed in the right-hand
corner.
Soft lighting, mainly in white
and yellow, will add to the festive
atmosphere.
DURING inteimission, the win-
ners of the homecoming display
contest will be announced and
trophies will be awarded. A prize,
to be kept secret until the dance,
will also be given to the winner of
the "name the cat" contest spon-
sored by the dance committee.
Master of ceremonies, Irv To-
bocman will also introduce the
Vaughn Shadows, who will en-
tertain with vocal renditions in-
three-part, harmony. The coed
trio was featured at Varsity
Night this fall.
Since Black Cat Ball is not for-
mal, "dressy" dresses and heels
will be the ordgr of the evening.
t* f
A POTOGRAPHER will be on
hand throughout the evening to
take pictures of couples attending
the dance.
The theme for this year's
homecoming dance was selected
because it fell in with the Hal-
loween season and because the
committee felt that the sound of
the name put the annual ball on
a more informal level.
In evidence on all publicity, the
Black Cat himself is the official
symbol of the dance. He is pic-
tured wearing a' University helmet
and carrying a football.
Thus the Halloween theme is
tied in with the football spirit,
