For Saturday
A cheerful note tucked in the
pages of many a student's "blue-
book blues," is the Union's semi-
annual "Bluebook Ball," scheduled
for 9 p.m. to midnight Saturday
in the Ballroom..
Coeds and their dates who take!
advantage of this study-break, will
find themselves amid decorations
that enable them to engage in
some last minute figuring.
The hallway leading to the Ball-
room will be lined with black
boards, and chalk will be supplied.
Bluebooks of all shapes and sizes
will dominate the decorative
scheme, ranging from the giant
edition which will be on hand for
all to sign, and miniature models,
to be given as favors.
Couples attending the Union's
last dance of the semester will be
entertained by the music of Red
Johnson and his band.
For those who do not have the
energy to participate in the dance
entertainment, a patio with tables
and chairs will be set up at one
end of the Ballroom.
Another academic note to the
evening's activities will be in the
form of a special "counselor"
whose services for the evening have
been especially secured by dance
officials.
Tickets for the affair are on
sale now in the Union or may be
purchased at the door.

In 1870 a young woman named
Madelon Louisa Stockwell made a
daring move; she became the first
coed to enter the University.
Today, the 480 coeds who live in
the largest single unit on campus
are not only grateful for the op-
portunity to enter the University,
which Miss Stockwell gave them,
but they are also grateful for the
dormitory which bears her name.

Standing stately at the corner
of North University and Observa-
tory, Stockwell Residence for wo-
men was constructed in 1940. The
cost of the large building was over
one million dollars.
It is a structure in modern
design, with its unique feature be-'
ing a semi-court between the two
wings.
Within the walls of this brick

and stone portion of the building
are located two dining rooms on
the first floor, a large lounge which
includes two libraries on the sec-
ond floor and a sundeck on top.
A unique feature of this five
story residence hall is the fact
that when it was built it had more
single rooms for coeds than it had
doubles. Other coed dormitories
did not have this feature.

Within the rooms coeds find the
conveniences of built-in towel cup-
boards and window seats. Some
coeds find the window seats pleas-
ant places to study during the
spring and summer months.
Many of the rooms have double
rather than single doors leading
into them. These doors give the
rooms a larger appearance when
they are open.

Another tradition held by
coeds of Stockwell Hall is t
Senior breakfast, given each s
by the juniors.
Still another of their tradit
is the honors dinner at which
all coeds with 3.5 averages
above, as well as those coeds
have been outstanding in var
extracurricular activities are Y

"Operation Ransom" will soon
release one of its pet projects after
many months of preparation with-
in the depths of East Quad's cellar.
Radio'station CBN, broadcasting
from the East Quadrangle, is ex-
pected, to return to the air with a
varied agenda of popular program
in the spring semester.
The new radio station was built
with advertising profits and funds
supplied by "Operation Ransom,"
an East Quad activities project.
New Staff Needed
"Our station which has been off
the air all semester will needt to
recruit a new staff," station man-
ager Drake Duane said.
"There are excellent opportuni-
ties open for all those interested in
amateur radio work," he added.
Among these Duane listed secre-
taries, disc jockeys and engineers.
Three ultra-modern rooms have
just been constructed for the sta-

tion. The transmitter and control
board were moved from the old
station site to its present home.
New equipment was also purchased.
Production Work
Production work takes place in
the office which is the territory
of the business staff. Here the
engineers and performers receive
their orders and the news men
pick up their copy for the evenings
broadcast.
Live programs originate from the
studio which lies between the office
and the control room.
All news broadcasts originate at
East Quad. The office is equipped
with a teletype and receives its
news from the Associated Press.
Even while the station is out of
operation, the news broadcasts are
arranged and transmitted by the
East Quad staffs with the use of
the stations in South and West
Quads.

The East Quad station is plan-
ning to return to the air with a
variety of both old and new pro-
grams. Disc jockeys will spin the
usual popular "platters." There
will also be regular programs of
classical and semi-classical music.
IHC has a committee which is
trying to devise a number of new
programs which would be appeal-
ing to the student listener. In the
planning stage is a weekly World
News Roundup program.
The East Quad station is a part
of the Campus Broadcasting Net-
work, an amateur radio network,
with programs originating in East,
South and West Quads. The sta-
tion transmits by electrical power
lines to the three Quads and the
women's dormitories.
A full-fledged schedule will com-
mence towards the second week of
the semester.
