VENTURES-IN-VENTIONS-Members of the Mic higras Decoration Committee plan decorations cen-
tered around the atom, "the basis ,.@.. of life itself ," for Yost Fleldhouse.






With Michigras only six weeks
away, Ventures-In-Ventions has
progressed from plans on paper
into actuality.
Every committee is planning
something for Michigras that is
either "newer," "bigger" or "bet-.
ter than anything that has ever
been done before for the week-
end." Watching different com-
mittees at work the excitement,
enthusiasm and the fact that time
is pressing is evident.
Decorations for Yost'Fieldhouse
will include "many firsts for
Michigras," David Beste, '60E, co-
chairman of the Decorations
Committee said. The prize booth
will be built around a 56-foot cen-,
ter decoration, largest ever built
by students on this campus.
Most other attempts of this sizef


have failed because the structures
did not have adequate support.
However, Beste plans to overcome
this obstacle by using scaffolding,
something that has not been tried

Atom To Be Theme
For the first time in Michigras
history, the outside door in addi-
tion to those on the end . walls
will sport decoration. All of the
fieldhouse decor will be centered
around the theme of the atom,
chosen, Beste said because it
"symbolizes the basis of all in-
ventions and of life itself."
The decorations have been com-
pletely designed, materials have
been ordered and construction has
begun in the Student Activities
Concessions Committee mem-
bers report that they have con-

tracted a new ride company, and
will feature eleven rides, more
than Michigras has ever had. A
special K i'd d e e K a r n i v a l is
planned from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.;
April 26.
Program Revisions Planned
The program booklet has also
undergone a revision, John As-
beck, '59, co-chairman of the Pro-
gram, Committee, commented.
"We're going to give the student
more information about what will
be going on during the weekend,"
he added enthusiastically.
The committee plans to reduce
the number of advertisements,
limit writing to topics of interest
and information to the students
and insert more pictures than ever
Asbeck said that the cover has
been completely designed and that
10,000 copies of the program will
be distributed to the students on
April 18.
Parade Plans Ready
Robert Binkow, '59BAd., of the
Parade Committee, reported that
almost all the plans for the pa-
rade have been turned in. So far,
there will be 80 units, including
34 floats, 10 special attractions
the nature of which is being kept
secret and bands.
Some members of the Prize
Committee went into Detroit last
week to buy prizes. Others on the
committee are still busy solicit'-
ing prizes from Ann Arbor mer-
The Central Committee float
has been completely designed and
will be centered around the theme
of the Gras-pin. All students are
welcome to work on the float and
on the field house decorations at
the Student Activities Building,
Binkow said.
