Showboat Motif To Be Featured
7At. Annual Homecoming Dance
IFC Announces Names of 545 New Fraternity Pledges
Highlighting the 58th presenta-
tion. of Homecoming festivities at
the University, the annual Home-
coming dance, featuring a "show-
boat" theme, will be held from 9
p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday in the
IM Building with the music of
Billy May and his orchestra.
Old records indicate that Home-
coming began as far back as 1897,
when the alumni came back to
campus to play the varsity foot-
ball team. Beyond these facts, the
why and wherefore of the event is
Alumni Association officials have
expressed the belief that IFC had
something to do with* its begin-I
ning. As an old issue of The Daily
concurred, the IFC formally es-
tablished the weekend in 1933.
The IFC office believes that
Homecoming may have grown out
of Founders Day, when old grad
affiliates came back to campus
en masse to honor the founders of
Files of the Michigan Historical
Collection also failed to yield any
One explanation remains. Old
newspapers reveal the fact that
University alumni flocked back to
campus for the Union anniversary
dinners which were held each fall.
This, and the freshman-sopho-
more football games and rallies,
could have gradually combined
and come to be the Homecoming
observance as it is today.
The dance itself originated dur-
ing the forties. Previous t6 this
ADC T oGive
Assembly Association has an-
nounced that a trophy is to be
presented to the independent
women's house having the best
Homecoming display. Judging will
be done on the basis of originality
The Judges will include Elsie
Fuller, assistant dean of women,
James Lewis, vice-president in
charge of student affairs, Tom
Bleha, president of Inter-House
Council, Jeanette Grimm, presi-
dent of Assembly Association and
one! girl to be chosen from the
off-campus housing group.
This is the first time a separate
Homecoming trophy has ever been
presented to the independent
women. In previous years there
was only one trophy for both men
and women, which was presented
to the winning independent house.
ADC had felt that the competi-
tion between men's and women's
residence halls worked generally
to the disadvantage of the women..

time the houses on campus held
their own individual dances:
There is no accurate data con-
cerning the original Homecoming
Records show that trophies were
awarded for Homecoming displays
for the first time in 1932. These
trophies were silver cups donated
by local merchants.
Women had no part in the con-
test until 1937, when IFC chal-
lenged sororities to compete with
them. This was again abandoned
during the second world war.
During the years, many themes
and bands have been featured. In
1953, the band of Claude Thorn-
hill played for the "Black Cat
Ball," while in 1954 the Wolver-
ines played host to Minnesota
and accordingly used the theme
of "Little Brown Jug," dancing to
the music of Alumnus Bill Gail
and his band.
This year committee members
are presenting Billy May, record-
ing star for Capitol records. He is
noted for the "slurping saxes" of
his orchestra, and his "fresh ap-
proach" to music. A feature of
this year's Homecoming dance will
be the fact that the band will play
atop a huge showboat.
There will be a special intermis-
sion show which will feature a
quartet headed by John Kline.
The weekend will include dis-
plays at fraterpity, sorority, inde-
pendent and league houses. Judges
will award prizes which will be!
announced at the football game
and awarded at the dance.
Favors will be given at the
dance which will be kept a secret
until the night of the dance.
General chairmen George Hen-
rich and Gwynne Finkleman ex-
press hopes that all University
students will come to the Home-
coming dance and represent their
team adequately. A full turnout
from Iowa fans attending the
game on Saturday is expected.
Other chairmen include Ron
Shorr, in charge of publicity,
Joanne Marsh who will take care
of program and patrons, Jim Blum
who arranged for the band, and
Bobbi Rubin and Dick Spindle,
Steve Shlanta is the building
and grounds chairman, while Jim
Myers is in charge of tickets.
Decorations for the IM Building
will be handled by co-chairmen
Sue Rutledge and Mike Eisman.
Ruth Plaut is general secretary:
Tickets are scheduled to go on
sale Wednesday at the Adminis-
tration Building, and will be sold
up until the dance and at the

The boy replied, "It's my twenty the coach will win if
