John Lewis
Under the auspices of the League
Board of Governors, the much-used
League Ballroom underwent a
complete "face-lifting" this past
summer.
The ballroom, which has been
the scene of numerous campus
dances, banquets and meetings for
many years, was remodeled with
a new lighting system, movable
stage and new furnishings.
The color scheme of the room
is gold, grey and white with a
touch of turquoise. The ceiling has
been painted white with gold arch-
es and side walls down to the pan-
eling, which is stained grey. Drap-
eries for the ballroom are gold-
colored raw silk with padded cor-
nices, while the side chairs have
been done in a dark turquoise.
Features New Lighting
Another new feature is the
"flush-lighting" system, which con-
sists of a series of 10 lights and
three series of built-in spotlights
for dances. Reflector lamps in the
hostess alcove throw shadows on
the gold draperies in the north
end of the room, making the nubby
gold glitter.

north end, where orchestras have

tions. The present plan is to put

ballroom for dances.
Remodeling Committee
Mrs. Herbert Taggert, president
of the League Board of Governors,
was in charge of the remodeling,
assisted by Mrs. Edith M. Wheel-
er, business manager of the
League, and Lucy Landers, presi-
dent of the League and vic'e-presi-
dent of the Board.
"The ballroom face-lifting,' "
said Mrs. Wheeler, "has been the
main project of the League Board
this year." The first function to
be held in the newly-remodeled
ballroom will be the reception held
for new vice-president John A.

Lewis, head of student affairs at
the University. The reception, open
to the entire campus will be from
3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct.
6 at the League.
Other recent remodeling in the
League includes the Barbara Little
Listening Rooms on the third floor
across from the League Library,
the Rumpus Room in the basement
and cafeteria and Undergraduate,
Offices on the first floor.
On the third floor is the League
Library, which is open to women
only, and the Barbara Little Lis-
tening Rooms, which are available
to men and coeds for studying or
lisitening to records.

Sigma Nu fraternity will pre-
sent one of the first semi-formalt
dances of the year Oct. 2, when
their annual White Rose Ball hon-
oring Alpha Tau Omega frater-
nity, will take place from 9 p.m.
to midnight, in the League Ball-
room.
Every fraternity and sorority on
campus has been invited. A reply
is requested from each house stat-
ing the number of tickets the
house wants. Sigma Nu was the
first fraternity to carry out this
system of sending mass invita-
tions to all affiliates.
Originates in Virginia
Both ATO and Sigma Nu ori-
ginated at the Virginia Military
Institute. The dance was first
presented there as a climax to a
series of rivalries between the
two fraternities.
Each year members of Sigma
Nu visit every sorority house and
make a speech inviting the house
to the dance. A long-stemmed
white rose is then presented to a
member of the house.
It is customary for ATO to re-

turn the honor by presenting the
Blackfoot Ball for the Sigma Nus
later in the year.
Sincenthe White Rose Ball is a
traditional dance, all national
chapters of Sigma Nu present the
dance annually. Originally the
dance took place in the spring but
since there was much interference
with other spring formals, the
time was changed to autumn.
Sigma Nu's are inviting friends
and all other fraternity and sor-
ority members on campus. All de-
corations and programs will car-
ry out the "white rose" theme.
Entertainment will be presented
at intermission.
