bones, five saxophones and a five
piece rhythm section make up the
organization. Vocal selections are

The Alexander orchestra which
will share the spotlight with the
Brown band is described by mem-
bers of the J-Hop committee as
"one that is meeting with enthusi-

astic response from all who have
heard it in its rirst rew months of
New Organization
The new organization looks back
to the standards set by the Good-
mans and Dorseys of other years.
Although it doesn't try to copy
them, it attempts to get the light
swing feeling which they achieved
on the "up-tempos."
The sound features four trom-
bones and two baritone saxophones
in unison, one octave below the
lead trombone.
The band is known for its brass
ensemble effects and often fea-
tures saxophone jazz solos. Most
of the arranging is done by Alex-
Orchestras Will Alternate
The two orchestras will provide
a continuous evening of dancing,
alternating on the bandstand dur-
ing the event.
Decorations for J-Hop will re-
volve about the "Rebelaire" theme.,
A southern setting will be pro-
vided by magnolias, green smilax
leaf sprays and fountains against
a background of southern planta-
tions, bayous and New Orleans
street scenes.
Southern Scenes
The color scheme of gold, white
and green will be carried out in
green draperies and gold and white
silhouettes of southern scenes.

feature of J-Hop Weekend, a rki
trip has been scheduled on Satur-
day and Sunday to East Tawas.
For those staying in Ann Arbor
for -the weekend a splash party
will be held from 2 to 4:30 p.m.'
Saturday at the women's pool and
an informal dance from 9 p.m. to
1 a.m. that evening at the League.



"Don't clutch! Start- studyng
early!" These words from a senior
coed seem to be typical of the
advice being given to freshmen
who are preparing for their first
final exams at the big University.
Since this is the time of the year
when freshmen experience those
butterflies of apprehension or per-
haps slight sensations of being
burned alive, University sopho-
more, junior andsenior students
are quite willing to offer their
experienced advice on the matter.
Senior Dave Stewart felt that
too many people study too long
and tend to get stale. He went on,
to say, "Do your daily assignments
during the semester, go out and
have fun now because if you study
too hard you get clutched."
One sophomore -coed - reported,
"I study the day and the night
before, and it doesn't work." Her
advice was to cover your material
twice if it is at all possible, once
before exam week begins and once
shortly before your exam.
Take It Easy
Another advocate of taking it
easy before finals is Bob Wells, '56.
Bob said, "Take it easy, don't be-
come a hermit.", His attitude on
studying for finals is, "It's the last
chance to review and enjoy the
The first thing you should do is
to catch up on what you haven't
done and then review by seminar,
reading over your bluebooks and
~notes and looking over old exams
to see sample questions.
Another coed suggests that
freshmen take their last minute
studying in stride and get eight
hours of sleep the night before.
Eating a good breakfast the morn-
ing of the exam and not going to
the P-Bell the night before were
other items stressed.
John F. Muehl, assistant pro-
fessor of English,. advised the
freshmen to look behind the spe-
cific question asked and find the
intent behind it. In English exams
he felt the most difficulty. for
students lay in their not reading
the questions correctly.
Read Q estion
It's not just'what material is
needed, but also what viewpoint is
invited. The use of the material
varies as to whether the question
says "list," "discuss," or "criti-
He concludedhby recommending
to the student the wisdom of shap-
ing the answer before writing.
"See the end before you start."
Other students had ulterior
motives in giving their advice.
Judy Jennis, '56, chairman of
interviewing and nominating com-
mittee of the League quoted a
"The more you study
The more you know.
The more you know -


The more you forget.
The more you forget
The less you know,
So what's the use of studying?"
Selfish Motives
Her motive? To get more people
interested in League work, of
A few students polled gave quite
radical answers, such as one four
pointer who felt cramming is all
right for some subjects, but it
should be done in style.
"Stay up all night sudying, get
no sleep, take the exam, and then

you can poo out when you.finish."
He explained his answer with the
further comment that if one breaks
up his cramming with sleep there
will be little retention of newly
learned facts.
They all agreed on what exam
takers should do once in the exam
room. They said the student should
have all the necessary equipment--
pens, erasers, and pencils. He
shouldn't waste too much time
on one problem, daydream, or wor-
ry about the outcome of the exam.
