Costumes, Group Singing, Band
o Highlight Paul Bunyan Dance



PAGE 7fl73

King of lumberjacks, Paul Bun-'
yan, will reign supreme as the
Forestry Club presents its annual
all-campus dance from 8 p.m. to
midnight, Saturday, at the Union
Tickets for the event, priced at
$2 per couple, may be purchased
at the Union and at the School of
Natural Resourses office in the
Natural Science Building.
The first Paul Bunyan Dance
was held several years ago when
foresters decided they would pre-
sent a dance different from any-
thing held on campus before. They
rented an old barn and went clad
n their oldest clothes.
While plaid shirts and jeans
prevaled at previous dances, this
year the foresters are offering
prizes to the couple dressed in the
most original costume, early Amer-
ican attire being most suitable.
Singer To Play
Hal. Singer's orchestra and a
featured vocalist will entertain
foresters and their friends as they
re-enact the traditions of the days
when logging was the most color-
ful industry on the continent.
Intermission entertainment will
feature the forestry Jug band and
a log sawing contest. Song sheets
will be passed among the couples
enabling them to join group sing-
ing. Two students will lead the
singing of ballads.
As in former years, pine trees
will be put up around the room
to create the proper atmosphere.
Decorations will also include
equipment from each department
of the School of Natural Resour-
ces; forestry, wildlife manage-
'ent, wood technology, conserva-
tion and fisheries.
Legends Retold
Paul Bunyan is the legendary
figure about whom stories and tra-
dition have been told and retold
as a part of the lumberman's lore.
One story says that the griddle
on which they cooked pancakes
for his breakfast was so big that
the cook's helpers had to tie slabs
of bacon on their feet and skate
around the griddle to grease it.
Pikes Peak is supposed to have
been formed when Paul piled rocks
around his pike pole, and he built
Niagara Falls for a shower.
The Mississippi River was
formed when one of Paul's water
wagons sprung a leak, and one day
when he' vas feeling particularly
sad, his tears formed the Great
Salt Lake.
Tomorrow at noon and at 1 p.m.
Paul Bunyan parades will be held.
Included will be the Ann Arbor
Police Force ,a power truck loaned
from the Michigan State Conser-
vation. Department, the foresters'
jug band, a logging wagon and
other trucks carrying a power saw
and part of the bar from the
dance decorations.
Plaid shirts have already invad-
ed the campus as members of the
Forestry Club celebrate Plaid
Shirt Week, traditional feature
preceding the dance.
Foresters will wear posters on
their backs, informing passersby
that its bearer is selling tickets to
the dance.

Upon completion of the Union,
Senior Suppers were held in the
new building, while the shows were
given at the old Whitney Theatre

Starting in 1936 and continuing
to the present time, the tradition-
al dinners have been held in the
League Ballroom. In 1936, seniors
rented caps and gowns for the oc-
casion and were charged 65 cents
for the dinner and play.

Construction Crews Prepare Lighting,
Sound Effects, Frames for Skit Night

Staging of the skits in Hill Audi-
torium is a vital part of the prepa-
ration for Skit Night which will
be held at 8 p.m. tomorrow.
Lighting, sound, and rehearsals
are all the job of productions Co-
chairmen Andrea Snyder and Dave
Davies. They are responsible for
working out the many problems
connected with the staging of the
The basic stage is made up of
four 16 feet by 16 feet frames cov-
ered with black drapery. The com-
mittee will provide the houses en-
tering the competitionx with flood-
lights, microphones, color frames,

risers, traveling arcs, and other ne-
cessary equipment.
Skits Rehearsed
Construction crews have been at
work for weeks preparing the
frames and gathering materials
for use on the stage of the audi-
torium. Yesterday ,all equipment
was put up for a complete dress
rehearsal of each skit. There will
be a final practice at 7:30 p.m. to-
day for line perfection and
straightening out of mechanical
Each group is responsible for
its own show. The productions
committee, however, assists houses.
Flats have been constructed and
painted by production crews from
the various houses entering the
competition. They have, with the

help of the production committee,
designed appropriate scenery for
their individual shows.
Scenery Planned
Scenery that will add to the
meaning and authenticity of the
skits has been the aim of the
house crews. Correct lighting has
also been a concern because this
can make a great difference in
thje effectiveness of a show.
For the past several Wednesday
afternoons meetings have been
held by Miss Snyder and Davies
with the directors and productions
representatives of' each skit. In
these meetings the various prob-
lems of production have been
straightened out. Also the commit-
tee has used this time to inform
the houses of instructions for the
use of Hill Auditorium.
Dressing rooms in the basement
and on the second floor of Hill Au-
ditorium have been provided to use
in preparation for skits.
Tickets are on sale in the Ad-
ministration Building from 9 a.rn.
until 5 p.m. and will also be sold
at the door. Prices are $1.25, $1
and 75 cents.

Wedding Attire..;.
"Here comes the bride . . .
Stepping in time to piano music,
15 members of the Newcomers
section of the Faculty Women's
Club walked down an aisle similar
to that of a church, as they mod-
eled wedding dresses worn during
the last 75 years.
Held at the League, the fashion
show was the year's biggest event
for the section..
Styles Changed
The gowns, all originally belong-
ing to section members, showed
America's changing taste in wed-
ding attire throughout the years.
Perhaps the most striking con-
trast was bgtween a dress worn
originally in 1880, and one of
1929. Made of heavy silk faille, the
former was adorned by a rich da-
mask train, while the bride of 1929
appeared in a thin, netted, long
waisted affair which came barely
to the knees.
Other gowns ranging in age
from 70 to one year old were view-
ed and appraised by members of
the section and their guests.
Hobbies Displayed
Various hobbies of Newcomers
were on display throughout the
afternoon. Tea and cookies were
also served at tables decorated
around a wedding theme.
Mrs. Richard Folsom, one of the
Newcomers in charge of the event,
remarked that the section gives
some sort of fashion show every
year. "Our last was one during
which women modeled dresses they
had made themselves," she said..
