WAA Clubs Plan Dance Concert

Three WAA dance clubs com-

concert at 3:30 p.m. and at 8:30
p.m. today and 8:30 p.m. tomorrow

Modern Dance Club, Ballet Club
and Choreographer's Workshop,
will demonstrate the dance forms
in a series of original compositions.
In this seventh annual concert
members of Choreographer's
Workshop will represent musicians
in the second movement of Bar-
tok's "String Quartet." The club
includes a selected group of stu-
dents who work primarily on group
composition and form demonstra-

Greek Tragedy

Tours Sponsored
Paris, London, Havana and many
other cities all over the world are
places about which the Students
Service Committee of the Union
has compiled information for their
Travel Bureau.
Duane Lamoureaux, head of the
committee, commented that "al-
though the bureau is only in skele-
tcn form now, we will have it
ready by the end of the semester."
The Travel Bureau will have a
complete list of all tours to Europe,
transportation schedules and prices
and books on where to go and
what to do.
The committee also hopes to
sponsor another flight to Europe
next year. Other trips they will
sponsor include a trip to Florida
during spring vacation and one
to Bermuda during Christmas va-

Pageantry, Ur
Featured at F
Frosh Weekend, the annual com
petition between two teams of
freshmen women, has in the pas
inspired many varied tnemes.
In 1952 the Maize Team chose
"Moonshine Madness" as its
theme, complete with cartoon
characters from Al Capp's L'il Ab
ner, an old fashioned general stor
and hillbilly characters smoking
corncob pipes. For the same year
the Blue Team chose "Pardon My
Politics" for its theme and th
Wolvercrat Party as the University
of Michigan political party.
Publicity stunts ranged from a
barrel parade staged by the Maize
Team in which one unfortunate
coed's barrel fell apart, to a moc
election in front of Angell Hall. A
horse draped in a blue blanket was
entered as the "dark horse" candi-
date for the Blue Team.
Origin in the Twenties
Frosh Weekend was begun as a
freshman coed project in 1948 but
had its origin in the Freshman
Spread during the 1920's. "Th
History of Music," given in 1924
is the first actual record of a
freshman production.
The pageant consisted of a series

f of dances given by freshman coeds
t at the traditional Lantern Night.
This program continued for nine
e years until 1933.
s Frosh Weekend has a three-fold
n purpose. One goal is to unite the
- freshman women in a project de-
e signed to promote friendship and
g cooperation.
x Second, the project is designed
:y to teach freshmen the value and
e fundamentals of committee work.
y Third, freshmen women become
acquainted with the League and its
a functions.
e Mysterious Signs
R As in years gone by, this year's
k publicity for both teams features
A mysterious signs. For the Maize
s Team, a tightly closed hand with
- yellow light seen between the fin-
gers and the words, "Wonder
Where the Yellow Went?", are dec-
a orating the campus. For the Blue
t Team, blue arrows dot every cam-
n pus tree and building.
e The teams will be judged on the
, basis of ticket sales, program de-
a sign, floor show and decorations.
The object is to spend as little
s money as possible.
