Duke Ellington To Play
At Annual Military Ball

Duke Ellington and his. Orches-
tra will provide the music for the
Military Ball to be held from 9
p.m. to 1 a.m. tonight in the
League Ballroom.
One of the most popular enter-
tainers today, Duke Ellington be-
gan his career as a jazz pianist
during the First World War in
Washington cafes. He played in
many bands and orchestras until
he started his own group in 1927.
Since then he has had few changes
in members.
The orchestra has had great
success in Carnegie Hall and the
Metropolitan Opera House in the
United States, and is hailed
throughout Europe.
When the Republic of Liberia
commissioned him to write a com-
position signalling its centennial,
the orchestra leader composed one
of his best songs.
Edward Kennedy Ellington was
nicknamed Duke in high school,
where he had a reputation of being
a neat dresser and having fastid-
ious manners.
Tickets for the dance are on
sale today from 3 to 5 p.m. in the
Administration Building.

Although the dance is given by
the ROTC students, all students
and faculty members are invited
to attend.
Intermission entertainment will
include the Coutours, a singing
combo, a chalk talk by Jon Col-
lins and Dick Phillips and a drill
team exhibition by the Pershing
Riflemen, a precision drill team.
ROTC students wilf attend the
dance in formal military uniforms.
Dance committee members in-
clude Dave Burchfleld, Army, gen-
eral chairman; John Heath, Air
Force, publicity; John Hackett,

FROM ROME TO OUTER SPACE:
Campus. Groups Plan Weekend Festivities

By MARY BETH GODFROY
From Rome to outer space,
wherever you look this weekend
you will find some University stu-
dents, for the parties cover a vast
territory.
The first stop on this trip will
be the former center and capitol
of the world, Rome. The Theta
Delta Chi's have rented a villa
complete with pillars and fountain
for their "Toga" party. Roman
messengers have been sent to in-
vite each coed to the dance, and
couples attending will be dressed.
as slaves, generals, and patriarchs.
Next stop is the desert land of
Arabia where Sigma Nu is honor-
ing their pledges at a dinner and
dance held in" a mosque.
Off to Gay Paree
Leaving these burning sands,
the next stop on our tour will be
Paris, where we find the Theta
Xi's at one of the celebrated cafes
for their "Apache Party." Favors
will be given to each mademoiselle
attending.
Men of Strauss house and their
dates will be found in a similar
setting but in the tiny province of
Monaco where their Monte Carlo
party will be in full swing.
Departing from this rather mild
climate, the next stop will be in
the frigid wastelands of the north,
Alaska. There the Tau Delta
Phi's will be found attending their
"Gold Rush" costume party.
Into Outer Space
Since this setting is so near the
League Candidates
The names under the picture
of the League Candidates, which
appeared yesterday, were re-
versed.

North Pole and the top of the
world, t&is trip now leaves the
planet Earth for outer space and
Acacia's party. The setting also
departs from the present day to
the year 2084 and couples will be
found wearing costumes appro-
priate for the occasion.
After this fantastic expedition
the next stop on our voyage will
be the sunny shores of Bermuda.
There Zeta Beta Tau's and their
dates will go swimming in the
"Bermuda Surf," the I-M pool in
disguise.
Returning to the United States,
the northwest provides the setting

for Delta Chi's "Lumberjack" par-
ty with attending couples wear-
ing appropriate costumes.
Traveling further south Phi Al-
pha Kappa and Scott House will
hold their square dances with the
Rocky Mountains providing a
backdrop.
Last stop before heading home
is the deep South where Phi Del-
ta Phi's and their southern belles
will dance to the music of the Boll
Weevils at their jazz party.
Arriving back in Ann Arbor,
other campus groups will be found
entertaining at formals, costume
parties, and record dances.
