'U' Groups To Present
Holiday Dance Concert
Premiere Performance of 'John Henry' Ballet
To Be Featured at Annual Christmas Program

Modern dance and ballet enthu-
siasts will combine efforts to pro-
duce the annual Holiday Dance
Program to be presented at 2:30
and 7:30 p.m. Sunday in the Sar-
ah Caswell Angell Dance Studio
on the second floor of Barbour
Gym.
The performances, sponsored by
the Women's Athletic Association's
co-recreational Modern Dance and
Ballet Clubs, will be open to the
public free of charge.
"JOHN HENRY," an original
ballet written by Don Harris,
graduate music student will be
presented publicly for the first
time Sunday. Ar16-piece orches-
tra will play for the production
starring Jim Stasheff in the title
role and Jenifer Allen as his wife.
Robin Squier created the
choreography for the ballet
which will feature Jean Isaac-
son, Marjorie Merz, Bob Wieg-
and, Barbara Freed and John
Kaznierowski in supporting
roles.

The ballet is based upon the
legendary workmen's idol, John
Henry, the man who tried to beat
the machine.
INCLUDED in the program will
be two modern dance solos, a duet,
two ballet solos and an ensemble
routine.
"Have a Good Time," a poem
written by Suden, will be danced
by Nancy Thayer who did her
own choreography. Jim Stasheff
will recite the piece while Miss
Thayer renders her interpre-
tation of the number.
Because a critic once told the
composer Satie that his music had
no form, he wrote "Three Pieces
in the Shape of a Pear." Jenifer
Allen has chosen to base her dance.
on the "first piece" of this com-
position.
IN OTHER numbers the spot-
light will shine on Marian Miller,
Henrietta Hermelin, Robin Squier
and Margaret Heizmann.
A Bach number will be per-
formed by an intermediate modern
dance class instructed by Dr. Es-
ther Pease,

"Here comes Santa Claus" will
echo from the various fraternity
houses on campus between 1:30
and 3 p.m. tomorrow. when the In-
terfraternity Council sponsors its
annual Christmas party.
Entertaining a total of 2,000
children between kindergarten age
and sixth grade, each of the 39 so-
cial fraternities has been assigned
a certain number of children.
THE LARGEST fraternities will
receive the greatest number of
guests, some having as many as 70
or as few as 15 or 20.
Since the entertaining is be-
ing done in the individual
houses, the details of the party
will differ from house to house.
Christmas decorations, includ-
ing a tree, will set the mood for
the festivities in most cases,
however.
With the help of sorority wom-
en, who have been asked to assist
the fraternities, the men will lead
the children in singing carols and
playing games, and will distribute
gifts.
"I ' * . .

highlight the afternoon entertain-
ment for the children.
Highpoint of the party for
many of the children will be a
visit from Santa Claus. Plan-
(l

ning to stop at each of the
houses, the jolly little man will
distribute gifts provided by the
Interfraternity Council.
All children in ten Ann Arbor
elementary schools, including the
University Elementary School,
were issued invitations to the par-
ty,

SO THAT the children would
know each other at each party,
they were assigned to the frater-
nities by schools and grades.
The parents have been asked to
be responsible for delivering the
children to thehousespand pick-
ing them up after the party.
First held in 1932, the annual
Christmas party for Ann Arbor
children has become a yearly part
of the IFC's activities.
