MIGHTY OX-Bill Cook, Work Committee Chairman for the
Paul Bunyan Ball strains under the weight of Babe, the Blue
Ox's horns, as construction of the mythical animal nears comple-
tion. A paper-mache figure of Paul Bunyan himself will dominate
the decorations of the annual ball to be held in his honor from
8 p.m. to midnight Saturday in the Union Ballroom.

"Curtain Call" has been chosen
as name for the annual Senior
Night to be held by senior women
on Thursday, March 22, at the
League.
The' evening will begin at 5:30
p.m. with a traditional march
from the library to the League,
where a sit-down dinner will be
served at °6 p.m. in the Ballroom.
Each senior woman will bear a
sign of her romantic status. Mar-
ried coeds will carry candles while
engaged coeds suck lemons.
Safety Pin Substitutes
Pinned seniors will wear small
safety pins instead of their frater-
nity pins. Urlattached coeds will
carry a handful of pennies and
throw a penny for each year of
their age into the wishing well.
After dinner senior women will,
preview this year's Junior Girls
Play production to be presented in
their honor by the juniors.
Tickets which may be purchased
either in the League Undergradu-
ate Office or from senior repre-
sentatives in the women's housing
units, will cover both the dinner
and performance.
Married Seniors Invited
Letters have been sent to mar-
ried senior women and those not
living on campus informing them
of the event and extending a spe-
cial invitation.
Lois Shein has been chosen as
general chairman and Janice Mac-
Vaugh as assistant general chair-
man.
Committee chairmen assisting
Miss Shein and Miss McVaugh are
Sylvia Levi, entertainment; Lois
Fenning, patrons; Jane Stellwagen,
tickets; Yvonne Cousins, programs
and decorations and Emily Hard-
ing, publicity.
Miss Shein asks that any seniors
interested in appearing in a skit
as part of the entertainment sign
up in the League Undergraduate
Office.

De-segregation is primarily a so-
cial, not legal problem," remarked
Buddha Govindaraj, alluding to
the Supreme Court ruling on sg
regation in Southernschools.
A graduate student from India,
Govindaraj has been studying for
his doctorate in international law
and organization at the University
for four years.
He cited last year's Supreme
Court decision as very humane in
its long range purpose. "But the
law alone, unless it induces a
change in thinking, cannot be ef-
fected without the people's acquie-
scence."
Drawing from India's experience
with de-segregation, the slim grad-
uate student, now vice-president
of the International Students As-
sociation, advocates passive re-
sistance as a workable solution for
America's problem.
Indian Problem
In India, segregation rooted in
3,000 years of tradition, has been a
major social ill. Mahatma Gandhi
started the movement for its elimi-

Mythical logging giant Paul Bun-
paper-mache figure, will reign at
the annual ball to be held in his
honor from 8 p.m. to midnight
Saturday in the Union Ballroom.
To make the atmosphere more
complete, Babe, his blue ox and a
cabin equipped with pot-bellied
stove 'nd other appropriate fur-
nishings will decorate the scene.
Sponsored by the Forester's Club,
the dance will feature the music
of Red Johnson and his Orchestra.
Throughout the evening there will
be several square dances. Inter-
mission will include an act by
members of the faculty, group
singing, and a log sawing contest.
Distinctive Corsages
White cedar sprigs and black
spruce cones tied with colored rib-
bons will fashion distinctive cor-
sages for women attending the
dance.
dIn addition to the trees which
will decorate the ballroom, the for-
est has also furnished material for
the "longest bar in Ann Arbor."
The bar is a replica of those in the
early saloons which were frequent-
ed by the old-time lumberjacks.
Members of the Forester's Club
will help welcome Paul to Ann
Arpor with a parade at noon on
tomorrow, starting from the Na-
tural Science Building.
Yearly Visits
Bunyan has visited the campus
yearly since the first Paul Bunyan

nation in 1922 using the non-vio-
lence method called "ahimsa." ,
Non-violence, as the great Indian
spiritual leader, prescribed it was
not just "abstaining from action,

Ball was held in 1937. In the past
he has made his quarters in the
Arboretum where members of the
Forester's Club had erected a hut
for him.
Plaid shirts and blue jeans will
be the proper attire for the dance
to help make Bunyan feel at home
and to create an informal atmos-
phere.

BUDDHA GOVINDARAJ
but putting the other man in the
ethical and moral wrong," Govin-
daraj explained. "It means at-
tacking a practice carried on by
individuals, not the individuals."
"When Gandhi started," the In-
dian said, "the untouchables, low-
est in the social order, were not
allowed to enter temples or walk
on the streets. Distinguishable by
a slightly darker skin color, they
could use only back doors of build-
ings and lived in poverty and ig-
norance."
Gandhi took an untouchable
girl as his step-daughter and
moved into one of their communi-
ties. He assigned the phrase "sons
of God" to a caste whose very
name had come to mean unclean.
Citing an example of passive re-
sistance in action Govindaraj told
about methods untouchables used
in establishing their right to use
houses of worship.
"At first, they would gather in'

groups to enter the temples, taking
seats in the back. They were
beaten and stoned but they came
back again and again. Gandhi
stated at the beginning that pas-
sive resistance was not meant for
cowards."
Untouchability outlawed
"In 1949," the soft-spoken grad-
uate student continued, "the new
constitution through which India
became a republic completely out-
lawed untouchability. Two years
ago, a law was passed that made
anyone practicing segregation li-
able to punishment."
The government, realizing that
other measures were needed to
alleviate the firmly entrenched
custom, reserved positions in the
ministry, in industry and in uni-
versities for members of the caste
who constitute 14 per cent of
India's 372 million people.
Govindaraj added that although
the problem of segregation is by
no means eliminated, great pro-
gress has been made towards its
solution in only 34 years.
Indian-American Discussion
The student will participate in
an Indian-American discussion en-
titled "Passive Resistance is the
Only Solution to All Social Ills," at
7:30 p.m. tomorrow in the Interna-
tional Center.
Just this past Christmas, the
Indian and two companions toured
the South, visiting four states,
"The situation of America's South-
ern Negro after -300 years, is
roughly comparable to the position
of India's untouchable before
Gandhi took up his cause, three
decades ago," he said.
During this trip, Govindaraj ob-
served that the younger generation
is not violently opposed to de-seg-
regation. Rather it is the old
politicians and conservatives who
cling to the institution that heaps
economic benefits on the Southern
whites.

To Be Entertained
St. Patricks Day
Plans for the Union-League
Spring hospital shows, "Sham-
rock Shenanigans," to be held Sat-
urday, March 17, are well under-
way.
Co-chairmen Usurla Gebhardt of
the League and Russ McKennan
representing the Union have an-
nounced the central committee to
be in charge of the Saint Patrick's
Day affair.
Committee members include,
Ruth Budoff and Paul Brabenee,
responsible for procuring enter-
ainment; Barb Humphrui and Bob
Arnove in charge of the Michigan
C h 1 d r e n ' s institution, Carol
Kinzie and Bob Ashton of the
Michigan Children's Institution
and Carol Kinzie and Bob Ashton
for the Neuro-Psychiatric Insti-
tute.
Other Committee Heads
Also chosen were, Liz Ware and
Dick Lyons for the Ann Arbor
Convalescent Home, Betty Fried-
man and Norton Steuben, to take
charge of Ypsilanti State Hospital,
and Tim Felinsky and Pat Turner
for the University Hospital.
McKennan, remarked that coeds
who want to sign up as hostesses
may do so at their own dormitories
and sororities where sign-up sheets
are being circulated.
Presented at Christmas and
Easter, the shows are designed to'
bring a bit of cheer to shut-ins.
They are held simultaneously at
the six institutions with a separate
bill of entertainment for each.
Entertainmers are usually stu-
dent talent groups. Anyone inter-
ested in performing for the shows
is asked to contact Ruth Budoff at
3-1561, 516 Mosher.
Previous Entertainment
The Psurfs, a Law Club harmony
group; Bill Modlin, baton twirler
and the Ann Arbor Alleycats were
a few of the well known campus
talent groups that entertained in
the winter show, "Christmas Cap-
ers."
