The dance takes its name from
an ancient tradition of the Bar-
risters" Association of England.
Law students in those days were
said to be so poor that they could
only afford to press their suits once
a year. At this time they gathered
for a "smart wing-ding" in honor
of the occasion. Thus the name,
Crease Ball, was initiated.
Don Kenny's orchestra will pro-
vide dance music. The Psurfs, a
law school singing group, will en-
tertain during intermission. Down-
stairs, couples may hear piano and
Subpoenas requesting ladies to
attend the dance are stamped,
sealed and then delivered by the
Ann Arbor Police Department inj
conjunction with the Barristers.
The subpoenas may be purchased
at Hutchins Hall.
Each couple will recive a copy of;
"The Raw Review," a take-off on
the "Law Review." "This is the
one chance that the lawyers get
to poke fun in print, at the faculty1
and editors of Law Review," stated4
Tom Hoya, law student.-
Profits of the dance will provide
a $200 scholaship for the senior
law student who has made the
greatest financial contribution to
his own needs. As a result of out-
side work his grades may not be
quite high enough for a regular
scholarship. A panel of faculty
members selects the student, who
is then confirmed by the Barris-
ter's Executive Committee.
Tickets for the dance are avail-
able at Hutchins Hall or from any
member of the Barristers, identifi-
able by black string ties. Although
the dance is primarily for law
school students and faculty, it is
open to undergraduates.
