Foresters Preparing
For Paul Bunyan Ball
Spruce, Pine Trees To Provide Decorations;
Conservation Displays, Films To Be Featured

Members of 'the Forester's Club
are busy this week selecting and
cutting the evergreen trees to be
used as decorations for their an-
nual Paul Bunyan dance, to be
held from 8 p.m. to midnight Sat-
urday, Feb. 27, in the Union Ball-
Spruce and pine trees, all from
8 to 15 feet in height, will be
placed around the main ballroom.
All the trees, about 35 in number,
are being cut from the School of
Natural Resources forests near
Ann Arbor.
PAUL BUNYAN, guest of honor
for the evening, will take his stand
at the. south end of the ballroom.
The 15 foot high replica of the
legendary logger, with his blue ox
Babe, will survey from this van-
tage point couples dancing to the
music of Paul McDonough.
A large picture of Paul, whose
tears are said to have formed
the Great Salt Lake, will form
the backdrop for the bandstand.
Adding to the rustic atmosphere
cliaracterizing the dance will be a
roaring fire in the fireplace at the
north end of the ballroom.
* * *
ALTHOUGH smoking is not al-
lowed in the main ballroom due
to the fire-danger, it will be per-
mitted in the patio adjoining the
dance floor. Couples wishing to
"sit one out" will be able to do so
around a facsimile of a camp fire,
which will be "lit" on the patio.
Thirsty couples will find soft
drinks being sold throughout the
evening from the "longest bar in
4 Ann Arbor." Made of logs, this.
traditional dance feature will
stretch the entire length of the
.So that couples attending the
* dance may learn a little about
conervation and forestry practices
as well as have a good time, the
foresters are planning to have a
variety of exhibits on display in
the small ballroom.
* * *
LOOKING over couples from
the far end of this ballroom, a
talking figure of Smokey Bear will
remind guests to pay attention to
fire prevention rules.
Central item in the fire-fight-
ing exhibit will be a complete
smoke jumper's outfit, to be
modeled by a manikin or dum-
Completing the fire fighting dis-
play will be a collection of tools
used by the men when putting
out forest fires. The use of each
item in the display will be explain-
ed to the guests.

IN AN ADJACENT part of the
room, an automatic slide viewing
machine will show a series of col-
ored slides of forest fires and also
of various national forests.
Couples attending the Paul
Bunyan dance will have an op-
portunity to actually participate
in a phase of forestry, for they
will be given a chance to run a
scale model of a bulldozer. The
authentic model, scaled down to
18 inches in size, will pull logs
cut down on the same scale.
The electric model, which runs
by remote control, is a new feature
at this year's dance. It does every-
thing a real bulldozer 'can do, on a
smaller scale, including backing,
going forward and turning to right
and left.
COMPLETING the displays
planned by the foresters will be
charts depicting birds, fish and
water pollution information. The
Fisheries Service is contributing a
series of photographs showing field
research done by that department.
So that couples will not for-
get that they are dancing in a
setting familiar to Paul Bunyan
and his logging friends, the men
will display stuffed animals
around the room, including
squirrels, birds and deer heads.
Throughout the evening motion
pictures showing various aspects of
fishing in Michigan will be shown
in a small room adjoining the ball-
* * *
LARGE pictures of Paul and
Babe, with short anecdotes de-
scribing the legendary hero's many
feats, will be displayed along the
length of the corridor leading to
the main ballroom.
Tickets for Paul Bunyan Dance,
priced at $2.25 per couple, are now
on sale from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the
School of Natural Resources office
in the- Natiural Science Building.
They are also being sold by the
members of the Forester's Club.
