IFC To Present Annual Dance;-
Silhouette Decorations To Prevail

For students who pave been
puzzled by the posters seen around
the problem has been solved.
These letters stand*for Richard
t. Maltby and his Orchestra, the
group who will perform at the
Inter-Fraternity Council Ball to be
held Friday, May 18, from 9 p.m. to
1 a.m. in the League.
This year's theme, "Spring Sil-
houette" will feature decorations,
}r depicting a big city atmosphere. To
add to the general effectiveness,
special lighting and colors will be
used so that just an outline of the
tall buildings will be seen against
a dark background.
Publicity Stunts Prove Effective
Publicity stunts for the dance
include slides at the Cinema Guild,
where people-who attend the movie
will find out essential data con-
cerning the dance.: Another inno-
vation will be the placing of tele-
phone cards in every fraternity
house on campus.
As the men use their phones,
they will, come upon a little card
attached to the dial. On it will be
Spertinent facts concerning the
Ball. According to Fred Schatz,
publicity chairman, this has been
a very effective way to encourage
the fraternity men to obtain dates.
If these methods do not draw
crowds to the IFC Ball, the coeds
who will'sing a publicity song at
the fraternity houses during the
dinner hour ought to put the men
in a dance-like atmosphere.
Two Bands To Provide Music
Besides Maltby and his musi-
cians, Harry Gaines and his Orch-
estra will provide dance music in
another room in the League.
During intermission, the Psurfs,
Law School singing group, will
Making the Inter-Fraternity
Ball possible are Herb Schneider,
general chairman, Sandra Beer,
executive secretary, Ed Richter,
decorations chairman and Ron
Ritzler, in charge of ticket sales.
Fred Schatz is handling public-
ty, Ron Norene is finance chair-
man and George Davidson is in
charge of patrons and programs.
Tickets can be obtained through
the fraternity house presidents and
social chairmen.
Among the events sponsored by
Inter-Fraternity Council is an an-
nualChristmas party for Ann Ar-
bor elementary school children in
the individual fraternity houses..

Tired but triumphant, Michigras
general co-chairmen, Barney Helz-
berg and Paula Strong relaxed in
the central committee room yes-
terday and reminisced about thel
success of the carnival weekend.
For the first time since last
May, they are able to sit down
and take it easy, without think-
ing of something pressing or ur-
gent that has to be done for Michi-
"In a way it's a relief," Miss
Strong admitted, "but I'm sorry
it's over. Above all the worries
and hectic life, it was so much
..-,.just perfect'
Sitting with feet propped on the
table, Helzberg was in a jovial
mood. "It was just perfect," he
declared with a broad smile. "Ev-
erything came true beyond our
highest aspirations."
Suddenly becoming serious, Helz-
berg's tone changed. "There are
so many people we owe thanks to,"
he said, "everyone put in a fan-
tastic amount of work."
Gratifying Results
"But you know," he added, "I
think more thanks than we ever
could give were in the results
"The greatest thing about the
whole project was the spirit," he
"That's because it's something
for everyone," Miss Strong put in.
"And everyone's still talking about
Competition Was Important
Helzberg felt that the competi-


tion among the housing units was
one of the important factors lead-
ing to the weekend's success.
"Some of those houses started
working on plans even before the
first mass meeting at the begin-
ning of November," he remarked.
Michigras Lessons
Helzberg feels that he's "learned
a lot from working on Michigras."
Besides contact with so many dif-
ferent people, both students and
officials, it was "an education on
the training of the mind."
Something that has been a part
of them for so long is not easily
lost. Both Helzberg and Miss
Strong are already talking about
Michigras 1958. They plan to re-
turn to campus for it.
Petitions for positions in the
Hillel Student Government may

the Hillel secretary from 9 a.m.
to noon and from 1 to 5 p.m.

RIMAHO-Sandra Beer, Herb Schneider, George Davidson, Fred
Shatz and Ron Norene admire the poster "Watch for RIMAHO"
which is a hint to the first treat In store for coeds and their dates
at the Inter-Fraternity Council Ball to be held Friday, May 19,
from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. in the League. Tickets for the affair can

Warm Weather Materials
Combine Value, Durability


SEPARATES ... Happy, Carefree and Flippant
.SKIRTS that love to polka, that go for walks
on campus--some that whirl and float on a
special little cloud of their own and flirt with
their own matching or contrasting blouses

With warm weather on its tardy
way, the prospect 'of washable
clothing that resists wrinkles,
sheds soil and requires no ironing,
is an appealing one for busy coeds.
In the past, endless hours of
ironing, that tttons and linens'
require to look fresh, dimmed a
good deal of the attraction of
spring's approach.
Now, the dual efforts of science
and industry, have produced man-
made textiles which combine good
looks with durability and require
practically no care.
Simulate Natural Textiles
These fabrics, dacron, orlon, ac-
rilan, and rayon, look amazingly
like the natural textiles which they
are intended to simulate, but cost
considerably less.
Rayon, which has been used
commercially f6r 45 years, can be
made to resemble, linen, wool, cot-
ton and silk. Another vegetable

fabric, vicara, which is made from
the protein in kernels of corn, has
the softness of fine wool.
Especially valuable to busy wom-
en is dacron, currently being used
instead of cotton, for lightweight
skirts and blouses.
Dacron has among its many vir-
tues, a resistance to humidity and
moisture. This in practical terms
means that a garment made of
dacron will retain its freshness af-
ter many hours of summer wear.
Cotton material would have al-
ready begun to sag and assume
that "slept in" look.
Ideal For Traveli
Ideal for travel wardrobes, clo-
thing made of dacron can make
living out of a suitcase a much
happier experience.
Fiberglas, the only mineral based
man-made fiber, is notable for its
strength., New finishing processes
have made the wrinkle resistant
fabric softer and more supple.
Surprisingly, it is completely re-
sistant to fire.
The members of the Frosh
Weekend teams have set up a
date bureau which will provide
coeds and men students with
dates for either night of the
Sign-up sheets have been
placed in all of the campus
housing units. Information from
those sheets should be turned
in or phoned into the League
Undergraduate Office by to-
morrow morning.
Freshman women will take
over the League Ballroom on
Friday and Saturday. April 27
and 28, when they present their
annual Frosh Weekend.
