Paul Bunyan To Appear at Dance

Special

Acts

ToBe Held
At Halftime
Paul Bunyan will make his an-
nual appearance in Ann Arbor
from 8 p.m. to midnight Saturday,
Feb. 27, at the all-campus dance
to be given in his honor in the Un-
ion Ballroom.
Sponsored by the Foresters'
Club, the traditional ball will fea-
ture a north-woods atmosphere in
keeping with the visit of Paul and
his Blue Ox, Babe.
* * *
MEN IN plaid shirts and coeds,
in either skirts or jeans, will dance
to the music of Paul McDonough.
During intermission a jug band
will take over.
A Charleston exhibition knd a
log-sawing contest are also on
the agenda for halftime.
The annual Paul Bunyan dance
was born fifteen years ago when a
small group of foresters and their
dates held a barn dance. In an ef-
fort to make their dance differ-
ent from ordinary campus dances,
they decided that the mode of
dress should be plaid. shirts and
that the atmosphere should be
strictly informal.
* s s
A YEAR LATER, in 1939, the
first real Paul Bunyan was held
at a local country club. It was an
artistic success and a financial
failure, according to reports of the
committee.
In 1940 the dance moved to
the League Ballroom. The fol-

Groups May Still Vie
For Numerous Trophies
In Michigras Parade
Today's the day that all peti-
tions for booths for the 1954 Mich-
igras are due in the Michigras
office in the basement of the
Union.
The petitions were handed out
by the Booths Co-chairman, Bob
Gillow and Barb Burstein, at a
mass meeting held before Christ-
mas vacation. Because representa-
tives of over 80 groups expressed a
desire to participate, the petition
system was used by the co-chair-
man.
* * *
ABOUT 45 groups will be chosen
to build and operate a booth in
the fieldhouse, April 23 and 24,
Miss Burstein stated. She added
thast the names of these houses will
be revealed sometime this weekend
after the petitions are processed.
Houses which do not make the
grade still have time to enter
the parade division and compete
for numerous trophies. Parade
Co-chairman Jane Thompson
said that any float "which meets
the Michigras standards" will be
used in the parade.
Booth petitions will be judged
on the following criteria: origin-
ality, selling ability, carnival spirit,
expense and thoroughness of peti-
tion.
The petition sub-committee has,
scheduled a meeting at 7:30 p.m.
today at the Union to begin pro-
cessing the petitions.
General Co-chairman Hal Ab-
rams extended an invitation to all
students to visit the new Michigras
office located in the basement ofr
the Union. A large Michiworm,

MIGHTY LOGGER-Paul Bunyan strides across the country on
his way to the dance to be held in his honor from 8 p.m. to mid-
night Saturday, Feb. 27, in the Union Ballroom. The informal
affair is sponsored by the Foresters' Club.

lowing year 360 couples attend-\
ed the dance held in the Union
Ballroom.
By 1945, the dance had estab-
lished itself as an annual affair.
By then it advertised many "uni-
que" attractions, all the way from
"The Shooting of Dan McGrew"
to a performance by a coke-bottle
Octet.
According to "Bull of the

Woods" (general chairman)
Mike Myers, the Foresters' Club,
made up of students in the
School of Natural Resources,
sponsors the Paul Bunyan each
y e a r for several reasons.
Through this medium, they hope
to meet students of other
schools on campus in an eve-
ning of fun.
In addition, according to com-
mittee members, the Paul Bunyan
dance is an opportunity to keep'
alive and pass on to others the le-
gends of Paul and his fabulous
exploits.

Adelphi, a local sorority, will be
transformed into a chapter of
Delta Phi Epsilon sometime in
May.
With the Delta Phi Epsilon Coun-
cil, regional directors, and parents
on hand, the sorority will be in-
stalled in a formal ceremony at
the Union. A dinner-dance at this
time is planned to celebrate the
event.
* * *
COMPRISED mostly of sopho-
mores, the sorority has to remain
a local organization for one year
in accordance with University reg-
ulations. To meet this requirement,
the members decided to adopt tem-
porarily the Adelphi name and a
pin in the form of the letter, A.
Because they are such a new
group, Adelphi has informal
rushing going on and can pledge
a student at anytime during the
year. Located at 705 Church
Street, the sorority intends to
have a different house next year.
Three students living in Stock-
well, Ellie Dunn, Olga List and

Ruth Hayman, and Jackie Altmanj
founded the sorority last year and
wrote the constitution.
IN THE BEGINNING 50 stu-
dents showed interest in the idea,
however as time went on names
were added and dropped until 14
students comprised the original
group.
Miss List stated that Adelphi
participates in all Panhellenic
and Junior Panhellenic activities
and recently held its first house
party, a spaghetti dinner and
record dance.
Delta Phi Epsilon will be an ac-
tive sorority, Miss List maintains,
and added that Adelphi presented
a booth for the WUS-Capades
charity carnival and will take part
in Michigras festivities.
New officers this semester are
Shirley Baylis, president; Audrey
Friedman, secretary; Ninion Bloch,
treasurer; June Golton, corres-
ponding secretary; Marcia Gellert,
social chairman, and Edith Schnei-
derman, rushing chairman.

CENTRAL committee positions

lent way for freshmen to get ac-
quainted with the League, their
fellow classmates and hold a post
that will help them become more a
part of the University.
Thirteen positions are open on
both the Maize and Blue teams,
making a total of 26 openings.
The teams compete for a tro-
phy by putting on a dance, floor-
show and diagonal stunts.
The judges also consider ticket
sales, program design and decora-
tions at the dance.
COMPLETE information con-
cerning the obs is available for
freshmen at the League Library
on the third floor of the League.
The positions open are general
chairman, assistant chairman,
publicity chairman and assist-
ant, finance chairman, decora-
tions chairman and assistant,
floorshow chairman and assist-
ant, patrons chairman, programs
chairman, tickets chairman and
awards and judges chairman.
Coeds will petition for positions
on either the Maize or Blue team.
The teams were drawn up at
League Night or at registration in
September. New freshmen may
participate in all the festivities
and may select their team in the
Undergraduate Office of the
League.
* * *
THE PROJECT will be held,
April 16 and 17 this year. It was'
initiated about six years ago and
has become the major activity
that freshmen coeds may enter.
The Maize team now reigns as
defending champions of the 1953
Frosh Weekend, with their produc-
tion of "Jumpin' Jupiter."
