Cast of Union Opera Fifty Booths
To Be Picked

Weddings, Engagements Announced by Coeds' Parents

T tmEarI( on


)Ur For Michigras

Adopting as their motto "the
show must go on," Union Opera
cast members and crew will em-
bark December 26 on the longest
road tour since the '20s.
Anticipating 1600.miles of travelI
the 69 members of the opera cast
and the 5 stage hands will board
two University buses the day after
Christmas for the first lap of their
FOLLOWING a schedule which
will be approximately the same in
each town, the group will arrive
in Toledo in time for a banquet
put on by the Toledo alumni. Aft-
er the show, the men will be hon-
ored at a Cast-Alumni Mixer.
* * *
Because of the short distance
to Toledo, the group will not
spend the night there, but rather
come back to Ann Arbor.
After a short rest Sunday, the
buses will pull out again at 10
p.m. that evening for the opera's,
stand in Buffalo.a
SERVING AS headquarters for
the men in Buffalo will be the
Buffalo Athletic Club.
Beginning about fifteen min-
utes after the close of the per-
p formance, this party, as in all
the cities visited during the tour,
is open to not only cast mem-
bers. University students, mem-j
bers of the audience and friends
are also invited.
After spending Monday evening
in Buffalo and perhaps taking a
sight-seeing tour to Niagara Falls,
the "gang" will head for Cleve-
land and a performance scheduled
for December 29.

C THE PARTY planned by the
Cleveland Alumni is typical of
those scheduled in each of the
cities. Expecting a crowd of be-
tween 1200 and 1550, the whole
mezanine floor of the hotel has
been rented for the event. Titled
"Michigan Ball," guests are ex-
pected from as far away as 60
One large ballroom and two
smaller rooms will be among the
rooms open for the event. On
hand to provide music for danc-
ing will be a seven piece orches-
Leaving early on the morning of
December 30, the outfit will make
te journey to Flint and back in
one day. The same arrangements
have been made for the show in
Detroit on New Year's Eve.
* * *
PRECEDING both performances
will be the usual banquet. Parties
scheduled by the alumni will be
similar to that planned in Cleve-
land. Added attraction in Detroit
will be the ushering in of the
New Year.
A night on the town will be
the highlight of the Chicago trip,
the last lap of the tour. Making
their headquarters the Conrad-
Hilton Hotel, the men will also be
lavishly entertained by the alumni
group of the "windy city."
Finishing their stand in Chi-
cago, the men will arrive back in
Ann Arbor on Sunday afternoon,
just in time for Monday morning

Petitions Will Be Used
As Basis for Selection
In '54 Spring Carnival
Booths for the carnival portion
of the 1954 Michigras, to be held
April 23 and 24 in the fieldhouse,
will be selected on the basis of
petitions, co-chairmen Barb Bur-
stein and Bob Gillow announced.
Because of limited room the co-
chairmen have set 50 as the top-
number of booths, shows, games of
skill and refreshments that will
be chosen.
The petition system will be ex-
plained to all house representa-
tives at a meeting to be held at
7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 6 in
the Union.
Booths will be selected on the
following basis: originality, sell-
ing ability, carnival spirit, expense
and thoroughness of petition.
Special consideration will be
given to traditional booths in so
far as they were successful last
year, Miss Burstein stated.
While the Michigras theme,
"Life's a Book," will prevail in the
fieldhouse, she asserted that it is
not imperative that the booths fol-
low this theme in their decorations.
Gillow reminds representatives
that trophies will be awarded in
three divisions-show booths, re-
freshments and games of skill.
Considered will be the number of
tickets sold; originality, appear-
ance and carnival spirit; and gen-
eral appeal to the public.
The "Beta Burlesque," a booth
offering of Beta Theta Pi and
Pi Beta Phi, sold the greatest num-
ber of tickets at the last Michi-
gras carnival in 1952.
"Love Through the Ages" pro-
duced by Theta Xi and Alpha Phi
was a close second
Working with the representa-
tives will be petitions chairman
Sissi Bergstein, electrical chair-
man Bob Hoffman, supply chair-
man Frank Taylor, design and
construction chairman Dave Flei-
sher, deconstruction chairman
Tom Barnum and judges chair-
man Marilyn Becker.
Other positions on this com-
mittee are filled by Sarah Jo
Brown, secretary, an'd Emily Bak-
er, publicity "chairman.
