Central Commitee Selects
1956 Michigras Theme



"Tempos Through Time" has
been decided. upon as the theme of
the 1956 Michigras by central com-
mittee members.
Barney Helzberg and Paula
Strong, co-chairmen have agreed
that this musical theme has end-
less possibilities for being carried
out, for all aspects of the event,
such as in the Michigras parade
as well as in the booths section of
the carnival.
Theme ideas may extend from
the bongo drums of primitive man,
through the stately minuets of
Mozart, to the frolicing gay nine-
ties, on through the rip-roaring
twenties, right on up to the modern
jazz age with "Rock Around the
Clock," according to the co-chair-
April 20 and 21
The two-day event will be pre-
sented April 20 and 21 with late
permission of 1:30 a.m. being pro-
vided for women students both
Helzberg also remarked that he
believed that the theme "has more
motion and color than previous
"For instance," he continued,
"this year for the first time, the
theme of 'Tempos Through Time'
can be easily adapted to produce
such booths as 'Break the Record,'

to something like 'So You Want
To Lead a Band."
Parade Meeting
After Thanksgiving, housing re-
presentatives will be contacted
concerning a meeting to discuss
the parade with Libby Garland and
Bill Miller, parade co-chairmen.
Full information regarding the
construction of floats will be given
at this meeting. Spending limits,
materials which can be used and
construction methods will be ex-
plained by the co-chairmen.
Other serious theme considera-
tions of the central committee
were such ideas as -"Oscar pre-
sents," concerning A c a d e m y
Award winning movies, hobbies,
international travel and the Am-
erican political scene.
Miss Strong and Helzberg added,
"We have set the basic theme and
then each house may work out its
own interpretations and ideas.
Theme of the last Michigras was
"Life's A Book," which depicted
chapters in the life of the Michi-
