Featured for the first time this
year, the weekend will include a
ski trip to East Tawas on Lake
Huron in the northeastern part of
the state.
According to members of the
J-Hop committee two hotels in
this area have been reserved for
"the weekend. Special reduced rates
on transportation, room accomo-
dations and meals have been se-
cured for students making the

Leonard A. Schaadt, business
manager of residence halls at the
University was guest speaker at
the Assembly Dorm Council meet-
ing Monday at the League.
Schaadt spoke about the duties
of his job in relation to the ques-
tions asked him by Assembly.
The question of installing milk
machines in the dormitories was
brought up. Since dorms at most
of the other large Universities
have them, many requests have
been made to also have them here.
Problems Involved

-Daily-Gerald Taylor
READY TO SKI!-Members of the J-Hop Central Committee,
Diane Cook, Chuck Sharp, and Peggy Zuelch look over their
skiing equipment in preparation for the ski trip being planned

Schaadt remarked that there
were too many health and techni-
cal problems involved with this
suggestion. The milk would have
to be changed every day and that
this would involve a tremendous
amount of work.
If the milk is not consumed im-
mediately after it is purchased and
is left for an hour or so it can
easily become contaminated and
can prove very harmful if it is
drunk at that time.
The question of installing an-
other switchboard for the dorms
on the hill to facilitate the phone
problem was discussed. Schaadt
reported that it seems impossible
for a new trunk line to be in-
stalled for the dorms.
Spring Dances
Dances during the spring will
be held on Friday nights in the
Rumpus Room of the League feat-
uring Paul Brody and his band.
These dances will start after
Christmas vacation and have been
scheduled to alleviate the crowded
conditions of the Union Little Club.

There will be an Assembly work-
shop Thursday, Jan. 5, for house
presidents, vice-presidents, secre-
taries, treasurers, and chairmen of
big sisters, activities, and scholar-
ship. A.D.C. and Corridor Repre-
sentatives are asked to attend also.
It was announced that there are
many committee openings for the
Junior Girl's Play. All interested
junior coeds may sign up in the
League Undergraduate office.
Cook Coeds Win
Volleyball Finals
In the finals of the WAA-spon-
sored residence hall volleyball tour-
naments, Martha Cook defeated
Couzens Hall in the "A" tourna-
ment and Kappa Kappa Gamma
II defeated Barbour I in the "B"
The two winning teams will meet
in the championship game after
Christmas vacation.
In the semi-finals, Couzens I
defeated Barbour II, and Cook
won over Alpha Xi Delta in the
"A" tournament, while in the B
class Kappa Kappa Gamma II de-
feated Delta Phi Epsilon and Bar-
bour I won its game with-New-
berry II.

Tradition plays a major role in
the lives of some six hundred stu-
dents in the School of Nursing.
From the first cap as a sopho-
more to the last day on the wards
as a senior, the nursing student
follows in the footsteps of many
Michigan grads.,
A class becomes a cohesive group
during the summer of their fresh-
man year while taking anatomy
together. One of the first cus-
toms to be carried out is the pres-
entation of an amusing gift to the
lecturer and instructors,
Cap Presented
In September of the sophomore
year each student is presented the
University cap by her big sister,
First in a long line of traditional
parties is the big-little sister tea
held durng the fall semester.
As it often does, tradition this
year has changed. Thus all trans-
fer students who live in Couzens
have been invited to join the
sophomores at 6 a.m. the Friday
before Christmas vacation in car-
oling throughout the dorm.
Big sisters again come into ac-
tion at the beginning of the jun-
ior year, when they present their
sisters with the coveted junior
Handed On
Some of these stripes have been
passed on from senior to junior
for the past five or six years and
at the present time are beginning
to look well worn. But according

to one junior, "I didn't care if my
stripe looked old - I was more
proud of it that way."
Also during the junior year a
"half way" party is held to cele-
brate the fact that exactly half
the more than ten semesters of
schooling have been completed.
During the spring semester jun-
iors hold a junior-senior banquet
in honor of their big sister class.
Class Projects
After receiving their senior
stripes, which the seniors consid-
er their last big milestone, the
class undertakes several tradition-
al projects.

Wonderful things happen when you wear it I


carry out the southern plantation
theme which will be used at J-Hop.
Music for dancing will be pro-
vided by Paul Brodie and his orch-
estra. Students who attend the
J-Hop on Friday will receive a re-
duced rate for the Saturday dance
upon the presentation of their
ticket stubs.
"Rebelaire," as the main event
on Friday has been named, will
carry out a southern theme using
a color scheme of green, white and
gold. Decorations will include
flowers, fountains, green draperies
and silhouettes of southern

Couples attending "Rebelaire"
will be entertained by the music
of Les Brown and Tommy Alexan-
der. The two orchestras will alter-
nate on the bandstand during the
Late permissions of 4 a.m. on
Friday and 2:30 a.m. on Saturday
have been granted to University
coeds for the J-Hop weekend.


Children Receive Presents
From Junior Panhellenic


This year Santa Claus will come
y to the children at University Hos-
pital and the patients at the Ypsi-
lanti State Mental Hospital bring-
ing gifts from all the sorority
pledges on campus.
Junior Panhellenic has collected
and , distributed 214 Christmas
stockings and presents to the men-
tal patients and 315 toys to the
confined children. The stockings
contained fruit, candy, nuts, and
useful items such as toilet articles
that the patients can use and en-
A ;wide range of ages was cov-
ered by the youngsters' gifts so
that no child would be left out.
These gifts were all wrapped to
further add to the children's pleas-
Tray favors for the hospital
Christmas parties were also made
by the sororities. Santa Claus
with a cotton beard and Christ-
mas trees decorated with sequins
and gold stars were two types of
favors designed.
Earlier this year Junior Panhel
with Junior Interfraternity Coun-

cil collected funds for the Muscu-
lar Dystrophy Association. This
Torch Night was the most suc-
cessful one that had ever been
carried out in Ann Arbor.
Pledges in groups of six were
assigned specific areas to cover.
Transportation was provided for
them by members of the Ann Ar-
bor Junior Chamber of Commerce
and refreshments were served lat-
er to b3oth drivers and workers at
the Veterans of Foreign Wars Hall.
During the spring semester an-
other service project of Junior
Panhel and Junior IFC is the an-
nual Tag Day collection. The funds
obtained from this drive are used
to finance the repair of the Fresh
Air Camp. Underprivileged chil-
dren use the camp's facilities dur-
ing the summer months.
