ISA-Sponsored Monte Carlo Ball\
To Offer Dance in Casino Setting

"Place your bets," a gambler's
favorite call, will echo through the
Union Ballroom as, the Interna-
tional Students Association spon-
sors its annual Monte Carlo Ball
from 9 p.m. to midnight Saturday.
Winners and losers alike will
have an opportunity to dance to
the music of Paul McDonough and
his orchestra. This group has be-
come well-known on campus
through numerous appearances at
various social events.
ALTHOUGH special invitationsj
have been extended to foreign stu-
dents, this will be an all-campus
dance where foreign students and
r Americans alike can try their luck
at gambling in games like roulette.
Even though some couples
may suffer great losses to luck-
ier gamblers, the only expenses
they will have to worry about
will be the cost of the ticket
which is $2.
Fake paper money will be given
to all those attending in order
to save couples with thin wallets
from sinking too far into debt.
TO PROVIDE the proper "Ca-
sino Cafe" atmosphere, cigarette
girls will circulate among dancers
and the decorations will also help
carry out the impression of a real
gambling establishment.
Like the custom in most gam-
bling places, the accepted dress
' for the night will be informal-
dressy dresses and heels for the
ladies and suits for the "gentle-,
men gamblers."
It is also anticipated that some
of the foreign students will come
in their native folk costumes.
SO THAT couples may have
souvenirs of this event, a photog-
rapher will be on hand to take
pictures.
Intermission entertainment is
planned so that losers can momen-
tarily forget their bad luck in
watching various colorful acts,
representing different countries
from all over the world.
Tickets for this event are still
on sale at the International Cen-
ter and in the Administration
Building. However, latecomers will
still have the opportunity to pur-
chase them at the door at the
time of the dance.

will take place at 5:15 p.m. today
in the small lounge of the Wo-
men's Athletic Building.
While operating for a brief per-
iod last year, lack of proper fa-
cilities led the co-rec club to dis-
band.
HOWEVER, using a heated
stable plus all the other facilities

have a strong club which will
function the remainder of the
year.

and frequency of which will be
decided at the meeting today, will

owners of the stables. The WAA
manager has two horses and
her own stables and has per-
formed at numerous local shows.

Physical Education Department,
will serve as advisor.
TENTATIVE plans call for a
field day which will feature bar-
rell racing, saddling and unsad-

For Thanksgiving Holidays

Students planning to return
home for Thanksgiving vacation
may again take advantage of the
Union Travel Service, now being
opened.
Devised to provide a common
meeting ground for both drivers
and riders, the service is free to
both. It also provides students
with transportation at a reason-
able rate, in addition to helping
drivers cover expenses.
THIS SERVICE will be available
until late Wednesday, Nov. 25, in
the Union Lobby. It is urged that
students sign up as early as pos-
sible to avoid the last minute rush.
The procedure involved calls
for the drivers filling out blue
cards and the riders, orange
cards. The cards are collected
daily from the Union Lobby and
filed alphabetically, according
to the destination.
Each card is dated and from
then on it is a matter of first
come, first served.
* * *
AS SOON AS the desired num-
ber of riders have signed up, the

driver is notified of their names
and phone numbers.
He then notifies his prospec-
tive passengers, makes the nec-
essary arrangements. He is then
asked to inform the Travel Ser-
vice whether he has a suitable-
number of passengers.
The Union Student Offices of-
fers this service on a non-profit
basis for the convenience of stu-
dents who wish transportation.
home for the holidays.
It has been run very success-
fully for several years now at
Easter, Thanksgiving and Christ-
mas vacations.
The present chairman is John
Munn, '54E.
