Sponsored by Junior Panhellenic

will inspire pledges to work for the
pledge class scholastic cup which
will be presented in a ceremony
this year.
A sorority-dormitory exchange
dinner has been planned for next
semester. The date is to be set
{ when the proposed date is approv-
ed by all houses.
The group discussed having for-
!ign students board regularly at
sorority houses for lunch and din-

hellenic Association support this
project so that houses would then
be working through Panhel rather
than individually. It was explained
that this support would not obli-

years ago, singing was only a part
of the act. The organization at
various times included band, a
small orchestra, native Hawaiian
artists, a banjo quintet, bird imi-

lin acts.
Name Changes
In the early 1900's the group was
known as the University of Mi-
chigan Glee and Mandolin Club.
However, at the beginning of the
1922-23 season, the organization
was renamed the Men's Glee Club.
An instrumental group remain-
ed, however, and the musicians
often gave a concert during the
early part of a program and then
remained to play for a dance to
round out 'the evening's entertain-

The Club has sung coast to

Oregon, under the sponsorship of
alumni clubs, concert organiza-

"Songs of the Campus," a movie
short, featured the singing of the
University Glee Club. Last spring
they recorded college songs for a
recording company.

AND THIS YEAR-Jerry Prescott and Earl Lundin, members of
the J-Hop central committee, show plans for this year's dance
to Ann Cordill.
J-Hop Dance Committee Chairmen
To Plan Activities for Big Weekend

J-Hop will be celebrated between
semesters with a full weekend of
fun and merriment, Chairman
Mark Gallon said.
The 1955 J-Hop committee has
planned another smaller dance on
Saturday night, following "the big
night." This will give independents
who do not attend fraternity par-
ties a chance to make J-Hop a
full-weekend event, Gallon added.
Other members of this year's
central committee are as follows:
Gene Cohen, booths; Lou Kwiker,
finance; David Smith, bands; Jer-
ry Prescott, programs, patrons and
favors; Pat Goddard, publicity;
Bill Diamond, decorations; Jim
Wells, building and grounds; Earl
Lundin, tickets and Sarah Jo
Brown, special events.
The next meeting of the cen-
tral committee will be at 8 p.m.
Nov. 10 in the Union. All jun-
iors are asked to help with stunts
and posters for their J-Hop. In-
terested students may contact
Miss Goddard.
J-Hop, now in its 78th year, will
feature two name bands in a one-
night stand. This tradition was
started two years ago. Before that
time it was held on both Friday
and Saturday nights, with couples
having a choice of attending either
A long history of J-Hop begins
way back on Feb. 17, 1877 when
students trooped down to Hank's
Emporium on South Main to at-
tend the first "Junior Hop."
It was the big social event of the
year, with an orchestra of two vio-
lins and a piano providing music

for 20 couples who attended the
The juniors had won the honor
of presenting the first hop only
after a long, hard campus fight.
During the next four years the
juniors continued to sponsorthe
annual dance, but then, abandon-
ed by this group, the Hop was
taken over by a group of frater-
nities who dubbed it "Society Hop."
Changing the name of the dance
to "Junior Social," the junior class
appeared on the scene once again
in 1833. By 1891 the J-Hop had
taken on characteristics nearly
like those of today, when it be-
came an annual event requiring
the music of two bands.
Two years later the dance was
moved to Waterman Gymnasium.
In 1900 the J-Hop was attended by
250 couples, and boasted the uni-
que feature of having "a larger
number of coeds present-more
than at any previous Hop."
With this colorful 77 year his-
tory behind them, the 1955 J-Hop
committee elected by juniors in
the all-campus elections, are busy
making plans for their dance be-
tween semesters.

Under the sponsorship of the Stu-
dent Religious Association and
Lane Hall six students and two
staff leaders attended the second
annual Michigan College Confer-
ence of Human Relations last
week-end at St. Mary's Lake Camp
near Battle Creek.
Each college or university in
Michigan was invited to send five
or more delegates to the confer-
ence. Students and faculty togeth-
er made up a team.
This year 95 students represent-
ing 16 universities and colleges
attended the conference.
Goals Told
The goals of the weekend meet-
ing were to share realistic think-
ing about human relations, to ex-
plore ways of living together with-
out religious or racial bigotry, to
experience intergroup living, to
consider practical application of
the principle of the Brotherhood of
Man under the Fatherhood of God
and to plan activities which pro-
mote improved human relations in
the campus community.
After lectures by members of the
conference staff which included
Mrs. Sara Colbin of the Detroit
Roundtable of Christians and Jews,
Dr. Herbert Seamans of the Na-
tional Conference of "Christians and
Jews and Dr. Hoyt Coe Reed of
Michigan State College the dele-
gates formed small work groups.
