Directing the visiting univer-
sity's vocal numbers and specialty
acts will be George F. Krueger,
Associate Professor of Choral Mu-
sic at Indiana.
His career has included asso-
ciation with such groups as the
Westminster Choir of Princeton,

phony Orchestra,

The Singing Hoosiers, basically
a choir of men's voices, have varied
their program to include specialty
groups. The Hoosier Queens, ten
coeds who will offer song-and-
dance routines, a dance duo and a
male quartet will appear with the
glee club in their performance.
Opening the program, the In-
diana group will offer "Our Song

"Man Is For A Woman Made,"
which includes a solo.

Union To Sponsor
First 'Sock Hop'
In Rainbow Room
"Sock Hop," first dance of its
kind to be sponsored by the Un-
ion, will be held tomorrow night
from 9 p.m. to midnight in the
Rainbow Ballroom of the Union.
Sportswear and a bright pair of
socks constitute the mode of ap-
parel. Students may come pre-
pared to remove their shoes be-
cause the Union has a special type
of floor wax designed to keep socks
in good shape.
Couples will dance to the music
of Red Johnson and his Orchestra
which features a saxophone, trum-
pet, trombone, piano and drums.
Union officials feel that this is
one of the most unusual dances
they have ever sponsored, because
it deviates from the ordinary "run-
of-the-mill" themes. Decorations
will include two giant sized socks
suspended from the ceiling.
The dance is replacing Rain-
bow Rendezvous, which was origi-
nally scheduled.

Editor Tells of 'Mademoiselle' Activities


Events Around Campus

Ellen Adams, ex-guest editor of
Mademoiselle Magazine, has come,
to the University to receive her
master's degree in English.
Last June, the attractive drama
major from Bloomfield Hills, Mi-
chigan, was chosen to be a guestI
editor of the magazine through
their College Board Contest, one
of 20 women to receive this honor.
She left Northwestern Univer-
sity where she was studying and
went to New York to live at the
Barbizon Hotel for a month.
Expressed Surprise
Miss Adams expressed surprise
at being chosen guest editor and
commented that at the time she
entered the contest she did not
think she had a chance to win.
While at Northwestern, Miss Ad-
ams took a course entitled "Cham-
ber Theater." This consisted in.
the staging of novels and short
stories. At this time, Yul Bryn-
ner, star of "The King and I,"
happened to be studying photo-
graphy there.
She arranged for an interview
with him and wrote up his im-
pressions of the campus. This ar-
ticle won her the editorship of
their August, 1955, issue.
A Year's Experience
When questioned as to her ex-
perience in New York, she re-
marked that "A year's worth of
experience is crammed into one
month. Then different editors in-
terview you to decide whether they
can use you or not."
She believed the experience was
very helpful since she was able
to see a national magazine in op-
eration. She remarked, "This

Fashion shows were a great
source of enjoyment to Miss Ad-
ams. She viewed the new fall
fabric line and on Seventh Ave.
she saw the new coats and dresses
for fall.
Besides these informative trips,
Miss Adams was entertained so-
cially at a cocktail party given by
a New York cosmetic firm. She
also met Edna Chase, editor of
Charm Magazine.
Each guest editor was given the
chance to meet any celebrity she
wanted and Miss Adams chose Ar-
thur Miller, author of "Death of
a Salesman."
After talking with him a while,
she was mainly impressed with his
keen insight. He told her "You
must not only show why a man
does something, but you must also
show why he almost did not do it."
Before leaving New York, a for-
mal dance was given inshonor of
the guest editors. Miss Adams'
stay was completed with a casual
party at the home of one of the
Mademoiselle editors.
