spring and will pay for the pub-
lishing of IHC booklets and the
regulation booklets for men's dor-
mitories on campus.
Tickets for this year's pro-
gram are priced at $1.25 for re-
served seats and $1 for general
admission, Roger Kidston, presi-
dent of IHC announced.
Polgar will select volunteers
from the audience to act as sub-
jects for his mental . feats, which
will include mind-reading, mem-
ory demonstrations and hypnosis.
AS ONE mind-reading stunt, a
member of the audience will be
chosen to hide Polgar's check for
the performance somewhere in the
audience.
If the doctor is unable to find
the check, led only by thought
impulses from the audience, the
money will be donated to the
IHC fund.
Wherever Polgar goes, he en-
counters skepticism. Nearly every-
one, he finds, is willing to acknow-
ledge his ability to put people in a
state of trance. But his faculty
for mind-reading, the transference
of thought from one person to
another, is usually too baffling to
believe.
At a magazine's New York edi-
torial offices, Dr. Polgar, who
holds degrees in psychology and
economics, was challenged to prove
his telepathic powers. He and sev-
eral members of the staff agreed
to play a game of hide-and-seek
in the 102-story Empire State
Building.
* * *
THEY DECIDED to hide a sil-
ver-folding money-clip. While the
hypnotist-telepathist was at a
nearby restaurant getting a cup
of coffee, the staff members hid
the clip in as unlikely a place as
they could think of.
They took an elevator down to
the sub-basement and concealed
the clip in a drawer within the
safe in the locksmith's office,
positively convinced that P.ol-
gar could not possibly know
Religious Center
To Invite Students
To Social Activity
For all students who will be on
campus between semesters, Lane
Hall is sponsoring an open house
from 9 p.m. to closing hours on the
Friday and Saturday nights of J-
Hop weekend.
Included among the activities
will be square and social dancing,
movies and group singing.
The game room and library will
also be open for use by the stu-
dents, and there will be material
from the various student religious
groups on display.
At this traditional open house,
the group serves some unique re-
freshments, such as the lummy-
burgers served last year and the
barfburgers the year before.
The freshman group at Lane
Hall has charge of the refresh
ments and all the other arrange-
ments.

J-Hop and its associated activi-
ties will help fill in the "dead" pe-
riod between semesters.
The annual dance, in its 77th.
year of existance at the Univer-
sity campus, will be held from 9
p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday, Feb. 5, in
the Intramural Building.
Tickets, priced at $7, will still
remain on sale from 8 a.m. to 5
p.m. through the exam weeks in
the Administration Building.
The orchestras of Ray An-
thony and Buddy Morrow will
alternate on the bandstand, pro-
viding an uninterupted program
of dance music for couples at-
tending.

where the clip was hidden. Af-
ter 5Y/ minutes, Polgar found
the clip.
The finale of tonight's perform-
ance will be devoted to hypnotism.
Although subjects lose many of
their inhibitions and perform un-
expected stunts under hypnotic
suggestion, Polgar emphasized
that no subject can be induced to
f o 11 o w a hypnotic suggestion'
against his basic code of right and
wrong.

Decorations for J-Hop will car-
ry out an under-the-sea setting,
depicting "Atlantis," the lost city.
Said in Greek mythology to be lo-
cated on an island, this highly-
cultured civilization sank into the
sea, never to be found again.
The ceiling of the Intramural
Building will be decorated to give
the appearance of the surface of
the ocean as seen from its depths.
Broken columns will represent
remnants of the mythical city in
its watery grave.
Murals painted at both ends of
the ballroom will feature other
underwater scenes. Fish and sea
plants will also add to the "wa-
tery" effect.
The two bandstands will re-
semble giant sea shells.
Coeds attending the dance will
receive favors, although the J-Hop
committee has announced that

particulars will be kept secret un-
til the night of J-Hop.
In choosing this year's orches-
tras, the committee has hoped to
satisfy the tastes of all students.
The Anthony aggregation was
recently chosen the top band of
the year by Billboard's national
disc jockey poll, while Buddy Mor-
row's orchestra was picked as the
most promising "newer" group.
Anthony's orchestra is com-
posed of five trumpets, four
trombones, five saxes, drums,
bass and a piano.
Tommy Mercer, Marcie Miller
and the Skyliners, a vocal quintet,
will be the featured vocalists for
the group.
Regulations for the dance state
that no corsages may be worn.
Student groups wishing to have
parties on the J-Hop weekend
must receive approval from the
Office of Student Affairs, follow-
ing the usual procedures. Requests
for approval of specific events
should be filed on or before Jan.
22.'
The Office of the Dean of
Women must separately approve
arrangements for housing women
overnight in men's residences. The
Dean of Women must also approve
a chaperone-in-residence for fra-
ternities occupied by women
guests.
Women will be granted 4 a.m.
permission on Friday, and must be
in their residences by 2 a.m. fol-
lowing Saturday's events.
