The Plymouth Dancing Lassies
will perform two free shows at 8
p.m. and 9 p.m. Friday and Sat-
urday at Yost Field House. The
Quartet, which specializes in Irish
jigs, will do their act in front of
the Chi Psi booth.
Another addition to the skill
booths previously announced will
be managed by members of Tau
Delta Phi. Entitled "U-Bang-I",
the game will carry out an Afri-
can theme. The object of the con-
test is for students to swing real
coconuts on ropes in pendelum
fashion in order to hit grinning
native "heads" protruding from
the underbrush.
According to Bob Knutson, con-
cession chairman, there is a possi-
- bility that a free monkey show
will be included by the firm that
sets up the rides. Such favorites
N as the Octopus, Ball-a-Plane, Tilt-
a-Whirl, Ferris wheel and Merry-
Go-Round will be stationed out-
side the Field House.
On Saturday afternoon a car-
nival will be held for all the chil-
dren of Ann Arbor and surround-
ing communities. Reduced rates
on the Auto Ride, Airplane, Boat
and Train rides will be the fea-
ture of the matinee performance.
In conjunction with his role in
a Detroit play Cab Calloway, not-
ed singer, has consented to take
part in the parade.
To add color to the long par-
ade, 20 large mache figure heads
have been secured from Coldwa-
ter. Clown bands and the tumb-
ling team will also stroll along
the parade route.

Singing the traditional song of

The name of the honor society
is taken from an old Welsh word
meaning "protecting dragon."
The organization was founded
for the prime purpose of looking
after incoming freshman. Mem-
bers served as guides and answer-
ed questions.
In later years the organization
became the all campus women's
Junior honorary which it is today.
The main purpose of Wyvern
today is to provide an organiza-
tion whereby the women leaders of
the junior class will have an op-
portunity to meet together to dis-
cuss current campus issues and
To be eligible for membership in
the honorary, a woman must be
outstanding in scholarship, lead-
ership and service. The scholastic
requirement is .2 above the all
campus women's average.
Tapping and initiation at pres-
ent are held once a year in the
spring. At this time approximately
20 sophomore women who will be

juniors the following fall are chos-,
en for membership.
Several days after tapping the
initiation ceremony is held in the
League Chapel. At this time the
new member receives a yellow rose
and a symbol of membership in
the honorary, a gold pin in the
shape of a dragon curled around
the letter W.
Activities which Wyvern has
sponsored this year include a par-
ty for the children atuthe Michi-
gan Children's Institute.
Officers of the honorary for the
present year are Sally Lorber, pres-
ident; Joan Hyman, treasurer;
Meg Gunther, secretary and Dot-
ty Fink, special projects chairman.
Dean Elsie Fuller is and has
been for the past few years fac-
ulty advisor to the honorary.
Passover Dance
In conclusion of the Passover
Season, Hillel will hold the
"Matza Ball" from 8 to 10:30
p.m. Sunday. Admission is free
for the affair which will feature
