Rule Changes
Coed Clinic To Explain
Basketball Regulations
New basketball rule changes will
be explained at a basketball clinic
sponsored by the Women's Athlet-I
ic Association at 5 p.m. tomorrow
and 7:15 p.m. Tuesday at Barbour
Because all tie games will be
played off this year, Marion Char-
rat, manager of the Coaches and
Officials Club, stated that the
players must know the rules to
avoid unnecessary waste of time.
For this reason the clinic is com-
pulsory for all team captains.
Athletic managers and team
captains are especially urged to
attend. If one member of a house
basketball team does not attend
the clinic, the team will be disqual-
ified from the tournament.
There will also be a compulsory
meeting for all timers and scorers
at 5 p.m. Thursday in the Fencing
Room of Barbour Gym.
Besides explaining the rule
changes concerning the center cir-
cle, blocking, fouls and traveling,
an exhibition of different defensive
techniques and offensive plays will
be presented.

Meaning of 'Michigras' Explained to Students

Most people use a dictionary to
find the meaning of a word.
However, Michigras, a word not:
defined by Webster, still has plen-
ty of meaning for thousands of
upperclassmen and townspeople
who have witnessed or worked on
the spectacle.
While this year's Michigras,
slated for April 23 and 24, is still
six months off, the word will be-
come part of every Freshman's and
Sophomore's vocabulary before
Actually the word has many
connotations and is used in var-
ied respects. It may refer to
the whole weekend, to the gigan-
tic parade or to the carnival,
but most often to all three.
Others think of Michigras as
a charitable or extra-curricular
project, a social event, or a Wo-
men's Athletic Association or Un-
ion extravaganza.
Whatever one thinks, Michigras
adds up to the biggest social event
of the year. In fact, the project
has grown to such an extent that
it can be produced only every
other year.
With special 1:30 a.m. permis-
sion granted women students both
Friday and Saturday, the week-
end begins on a musical and color-
orful note with a parade, a favor-
ite of those from eight to eighty,
along the main streets of Ann
Arbor to Yost Fieldhouse.
Many neck muscles are stret-
ched to catch an early glimpse
of the Michigan Marching Band,
baton majorettes leading high
school bands from all over the
state, balloon figures, horses,
and best of all, the floats.
DRAWING THE most "ohs and
ahs," the floats, jointly construct-
ed by women's and men's resi-
dences, compete for three top
Games of chance, soap operas,

"burlesque" shows, cafes, fortune
tellers and the customary cotton
candy are but a few of the fea-
tures of the Michigras carnival. To
go with this entertainment, rides
are usually present to thrill the
young and old.
Before this week is over a call
will be issued by Michigras Chair-
men Gretchen Moiers and Hal
Abrams for students to aid in this
year's Michigras, the proceeds of
which will go to a worthwhile
charity or fund.

Students interested in being
sub-chairman or members of a
multitude of committees will
have a chance to sign up and
learn more about Michigras
plans at a mass meeting to be
held at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday,
Nov. 18, in the Union Ball-
Central committee chairmen an-
nounced recently are Charles
Skala, finance; Beveral Falk, se-
cretary; Barbara Burstein and
Bob Gilow, booths; Jane Thomp-

son and Guy Moulthrop, parade;
Joyce Lane and Ron Bauer, tick-
ets; Dianne Young and Dave Arn-
old, refreshments.
Sally Fernamberg and Jerry
Prescott will steer the prize com-
mittee, Betsy Sherer and Barney
Helzberg, programs; Pat Goddard
and Ruth Flanders, decorations;
Peg Schaible and Todd Lief, pub-
licity. Roz Shlimovitz will handle
Daily publicity, Sally Luber, post-
