its and tuxedos, coeds and men
1 rhumba, mambo and fox trot
eir way through a series of an-
al dances presented regularly
roughout the year.
special occasions like Homecom-3
in the fall and Greek Week in
e Spring give various campus
nmittees the opportunity to
esent festive dances. Tradition
the only impetus that many of'
e schools and other groups in
e University need to plan other
nces.
T'his year will make the 59th oc-,
sion that the University has
inned a mass Homecoming pro-
am to welcome back University
imni.
First Homecoming
The big weekend was first ob-;
wved in 1897 when alumni came
ck with the varsity for a foot-
L1 game.
Supplementing another football
ekend--the night following the
sh with Iowa, I-Hop is held.
onsored by the AssemblyrAsso-
,tion, it is usually the first all-
mpus dance to be held in the
1l.
Affiliated coeds take part in so-
1 activities with their annualJ
nhel Ball. A coed-bid semi-for-
d, the dance will be presented
s year near the end of the foot-
i season.
Fraternity Men also get into the
;ial sphere as they present In-
fraternity Ball, a climax toI
eek Week celebrations in the4
ring. Greek Week activities, in-1
.ving mainly the affiliated stu-i
its on campus, helps to main-i

tain good inter-fraternity and in-
ter-sorority relations.
School-Sponsored Dances
Filling out the dance program'
between these affairs are the
dances presented by the different
schools.
Utilizing the legend of the log-
ging giant, Paul Bunyan, mem-
bers of the School of Natural Re-
sources hold Paul Bunyan Ball,
usually in the Spring.
In an atmosphere of pine trees,
cones and needles, supplied by for-
estry students, couples dressed in
the. typical dress of the lumber
man, blue jeans and plaid shirt,
dance to music provided by a lo-
cal campus band.
Taking its place among num-
erous pledge formals' and Christ-
mas dances, is 'the lawyers fall
contribution to the rounds of so-
cial gayeties-Wig and, Robe Ball.
Sponsored by the Barrister's, the
Semi-formal dance is usually held
right before Christmas vacation.
Army Time
Earlier in the semester, comes
the time when full uniformed
West Point cadets invade the Uni-
versity, en masse. Their arrival
not only marks the Michigan-
Army football game, but also the
presentation of a dance - ap-
propriately entitled Military Ball.
The dance is sponsored by the
ROTC units on campus, with com-
manders and reserve officers ex-,
tended special invitation. Actually,
anyone on campus may attend.
In February, Galens, honorary
medical fraternity, sponsors Cadu-
ceus Ball. Deriving its name from
the old Greek and Roman symbol,
consisting of a rod entwined with
a snake, the dance is given espe-

cially for medical students and
staff members at the University
Hospital, but is open to students
of all schools.
Dentist's Dance
Dental students follow suit la-
ter with Odonto Ball, a dance pre-
sented by the juniors in honor of
the senior class.
Five years ago, Odonto Ball
helped to celebrate the diamond
jubilee of the founding of the
University dental school.
Men prepared an elaborate dec-
orative scheme depicting the life
of a tooth doctor, from pioneer
days down to the modern facilities
employed today.
Later in the Spring semester,
law students come into the social
picture again with Crease Ball.
The legend surrounding its ori-

gin says that in the early days,
the lot of young lawyers and law
students was not, such a prosper-
ous one. Forced to struggle for a
living, their pocketbook allowed
them to put a crease in their
trousers only once a year. In honor
of the occasion, a ball was held.
Tradition says that engineers
must crash each Crease Ball, drag
[n a giant slide rule and challenge
the legal brains to find where they
have later hidden it.
The rivalry between the schools
developed on campus not too many
years ago when law classrooms
were located in the old Haven
Hall.
Lawyers had annoyed the engi-
neers by parking a car in the mid-
dle of the Engineering Arch and
letting the air out of the tires.
To reciprocate, the men with the

slide rules formed a human chain
across the arch to prevent the
lawyers from reaching their class-
rooms.
Slide Rule Bal
Slide Rule Ball, coming some-
times before and sometimes after
the Crease Ball, highlights a
Spring weekend of festivities for,
the engineers.
The International Center at the
University is usually a busy place
but it receives the most attention
during the International Week,
held near the end of the Spring
semester.
Climaxing a week of exhibits
from the native lands of the Uni-
versity's many students from oth-
er countries, fashion shows, lec-
tures and parties is the Interna-
tional Ball. -
The formal dance is highlighted

by dance routines from all ov
the world.
Another dance with an inte
national flavor is the wnnu
Monte Carlo Ball. One of the fe
big costume dances,'it allows coe
and their dates to spend an even
ing in a realistic, gambling a
mosphere. After playing su
games as roulette, couples lea
the dance with their pockets fu
of play money.
