The White Rose Hall, has long
been traditional between Sigma
Nu and ATO. Both fraternities or-
iginated at the Virginia Military
Institute and the dance was first
presented there in the spring to
climax a series of rivalries between
the two groups.
Since the dance is traditional,
chapters all over the country now
present it every year. Though the
dance is usually a spring affair, it
is presented here at Michigan dur-
ing the fall because of conflicts
with other spring formals.

return the honor by presenting
their Blackfoot Ball in honor of

corations and Larry Hardy is
chairman of publicity. In charge

According to McIntyre tickets to
