On the University campus danc-
ing is one of the most enjoyed so-
cial activities. So for this reason
the Michigan League is offering a
series of dance classes.
Instruction is given at all levels
and everyone can find a class to
suit his own particular need,
whether he is a beginner or an ad-
vanced dancer. The beginning
classes give the student a solid
background in the fundamental
steps such as fox trot, waltz, rum-
ba and tango.
Intermediate classes are offered
to coeds and men who know fun-
damentals, but want to learn more
steps.,In the advanced class dance
techniques and style are the center
of concentration. Then there is an
exhibition group for the more pro-
Free for Coeds
All classes are free to coeds. Any
woman interested in learning new
steps and meeting new friends can
act as a hostess at the singles
classes or may come to one of the
doubles classes with a partner.
A small fee is charged to men at
the beginning of the series.
Classes this fall will once again
be under the direction of John Ur-
banic, former dance instructor in a
Detroit studio.He will teach stu-
dents the steps of the mambo;
the dance which is currently pop-
tlar on campus.
An added attraction for both
coeds and men is the Date Bureau
which functions in connection with
the doubles classes. Those interest-
ed in having blind dates may sign
up for this service at the beginning
of the classes.

semester will begin Monday, .Oct.
10, and continue for eight weeks.

Little Rooms Used for Listening, Study
Since their dedication last Janu-
ary the Barbara Little music lis-
tening rooms in the League have
become a popular place for study-
ing, relaxing and listening.
The three soundproof listening
rooms, located on the third floor of
the League across from the League
Library, are decorated in attractive
color schemes all in a modern style
with .harmonizing furniture and
Each room has its own distince
tive color scheme and furnishings.
Room "A" is decorated in quiet
muted tones of brown, beige and
lime. Room "B," done incolors of
black, grey and shocking pink,
features ultra-modern furniture.
Restful shades of rose, grey and
green are found in Room "C."
For those students, both men
and women, who wish to listen to
the records of their choice the
listening rooms offer an outstand-
inig collection of long playing clas-
The student is able to choose
from a wide selection of operas,
ballets, Shakespearean plays and
Since the collection contains
most of the records used in the
music literature courses, Room "C"
has been set aside for the exclusive
use of music literature students.
Lists of available records are
posted in the hall outside the
rooms. Students wishing to hear
specific records simply ask the
League Librarian to play them on
the central turntable and have the
music piped into a particular room.
The listening rooms are dedi-
cated to the memory of the late
Barbara J. Little who died in an
automobile accident in the summer
of 1951 following her graduation.
Miss Little, chairman of Wo-
men's Judiciary Council in 1950-51,
was a principle figure in the estab-
lishment of the Joint Judiciary
She was also on the executive
board of the Women's Senate,
Women's League, Council, Student
Affairs Committee, Board of Rep-
resentatives, Scroll and Panhel-
lenic Rushing Chairman in 1949-
Funds for the soundproof ing,
painting, draperies, rugs, lamps
and furniture of the listening
rooms were obtained from the
Leaguesactivities of 1952 and 1953
such as Frosh Weekend, Sopho-
more Cabaret, Junior Girls Play,
Senior Supper and the Summer
These funds were supplemented
by special contributions from in-
dividuals and a $200 gift from Del-
ta Delta Delta, of which Miss Lit-
tle was an alumna, for purchasing
the furniture in Room "B." A pic-
ture and memoriam of Miss Little
also appear in this room.
