Barney Helzberg, '56BAd, as gen-
eral co-chairmen of the 1956 Mi-
chigras.

the Central Committee, coordin-

age.
It is their job, also, to have the

day, April 20.

By BILL HANEY
Though Michigras General Co-
chairmen vary in sizes and per-
sonalities from year to year they
almost invariably have one feat-
ure in common: problems.
However this year Paula Strong,
'56 and Barney Helzberg, '56BAd,
are striving to be execeptions.
"We've been telling each other'
all year long how many problems
we have," Miss Strong admitted,
"but when we stop to think of the
great jobs done by the commit-
tee chairmen and everybody work-
ing on Michigras we have to ad-
mit we don't have much to worry
about."
One remaining cause of concern
to the ambitious pair is the weath-
er. "Even that has been okayed
by the weather bureau," Helzberg
said, "and to mnake sure, we have
a guarantee from the Regents."
The Co-Chairmen are confident
the '56 Michigras will be "the best
ever." In fact, Helzberg says the
entire campus has so enthusiasti-

Miss Strong, Helzberg

cally accepted Michigras this year
"it is no longer an extra-curricular
activity to work on it."
The only students who are not
called upon to work on booths or
floats for the housing groups in
which they live are those who are
already busy working on one of
the Michigras committees, Helz-
berg explained.
When Helzberg came up to Ann
Arbor from Kansas City in 1952 to
visit the campus he was so im-
pressed by the spectacle of Michi-
gras he decided to come to Michi-
gan for his college education. Helz-
berg started working in Michigras
immediately and was program co-
chairman two years ago.
Miss Strong asserts, "Michigras
is the biggest single weapon to de-
stroy the myth that Michigan is
just a fine school with no spirit."
"Students don't get tired of it
as they might if it were held every
year and its 54 year tradition is
therefore marked with great en-
thusiasm."

Ten rides-the- largest number
in Michigras history-will be feat-
ured on the carnival "midway" be-
tween 7 p.m. and 1, a.m. Friday
and Saturday nights.
According to Jim Barger, '57E,
concessions chairman, "some dump
you upside down and some swing
you around so fast you get thrown
all over." All this "violent mo-

Between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. on

the Kiddy Carnival.
Four special "kiddy" rides have
been obtained-a train, a boat,
little automobiles and small-sized
fire-engines. For the bigger folks
-there'll be a ferris wheel, a merry-
go-round, as well as a "Spineroo"
-a vertical octupus, like a ferris
wheel but with cages which also,
revolve during the ride.
The "Rockoplane" is a horizon-
tal octupus, also with revolving
cages, the "Flyoplane consists of
small airplanes attached to cables
with rudder steering, and the
"Tiltawhirl" is a rocket ship. de-
vice with a circular path, which
goes, according to Barger, "to beat
the band."
