Will Reopen
For Dancing
Featuring Red Johnson and his
"music for dancing," the "Little
Club" will again open its informal
atmosphere to campus students

Soft lights and sweet music will
help provide the "night 'club" at-
mosphere and set the mood for
couples attending the weekly gath-
Adding to the informality of the
cabaret setting will be the tables
covered with checkered tablecloths
and topped by whiskey bottle can-
Ole holders.
Couples may relax at these
tables surrounding the dance floor
while they sip cokes or chat with
Featured during the evening will
be special floor-show entertain-
ment. Refreshments will be avail-
The price of admission will be
$1 for couples spending the entire
evening at the "Club" and 75 cents
for those who drop in after 11 p.m.
Sponsored since last fall by the
Union social committee, the "Little
Club" is a weekly feature through-
out the semester. According to
committee head Santo Ponticello,
it provides an ideal place for stu-
dents to stop after a Friday night
movie or a hard week of classes.
e Two years ago the club was spon-
sored by the former Association
for Independent Men, commonly
' known as AIM. At that time, it
was established in the Michigan
Room of the League.

Spalding's saddle oxford is still walking away
with top honors. Not just the co-eds, but every
busy, comfort-craving young woman wants the
Spalding classic. A soft, tapered toe is one reason

one of the Quad "old guard" de-

One of the ousted Chicagot
