ampus Stays Lively with Dances;
omecoming, J-Hop Top Calendar

From the first moment that stu-
dents begin arriving on campus in
the fall, the whirl of social events
is something that most of them
look forward to and never forget.
Regular Saturday night Union
dances with "real live" bands are
casual affairs that heighten the
anticipation and party spirit for
one of the first big dances of the
year, the Homecoming Dance.
HELD DURING the Homecom-
ing weekend, the dance shares the
spotlight with returning alumni,
the football game and the gigantic
displays which are set up in front
of nearly every dormitory, sorority,
and fraternity house on campus.
The Homecoming D a n c e,
which is held in the IM Build-
ing, annually features such well-
known bands as Elliott Lawrence
and Claude Thornhill.
Another big fall dance is As-
sembly Ball, sponsored by inde-
pendent men and women. A formal
dance open to everyone on cam-
pus, Assembly Ball has featured
such bands as Woody Herman in
the past.

EACH YEAR, both the Men's
Union and Women's League pre-
sent their respective formals in
the fall, as do the affiliated wo-
men with their Panhel Ball. Pan-

hel is a coed-bid dance for sor-
ority women and their dates only.
Although all the dances pro-
vide fun and entertainment
throughout the school year, it
is the between-semesters J-Hop
which highlights the social cal-
The men save their money and
the women save their prettiest
formals, and both leave their final
examinations and other worries
back in the dorms for this fun-
packed weekend of parties and

LAST YEAR it was Charlie Spi-
vak and Johnny Long who shared
the music honors for the dance,
each playing for alternating half
hours during their two-night ap-
The junior class goes all out
in giving their ball for the en-
tire campus. The decorations
often come from New York and
are the most elaborate of any
school dance.
Programs and favors are other
features of the."biggest dance of
the year." In the past on different
occasions coeds have received or-
chids, cologne, miniature com-
pacts and gold medalions bearing
the University seal.

THE THEME of last year's event

was "Artistry in Orchid." A south
sea island atmosphere, complete
with authentic palm trees, grass,
coconuts and fountains with per-
fumed running water was used to
set a realistic tropical scene.
Costume and theme parties are
also scheduled in every fraternity
house and dormitory that week
end. Many of the campus male
population move out of their us-
ual campus quarters for the week
end to make room for the coeds
and out-of-town dates,-

MICHIGAN'S version of the
"melting pot" of nations is Inter-
national Ball. Presented annually
by the International Center, stu-
dents from every part of the globe
meet at this dance.
Among the final big events of
the year are IFC Ball, presented
by the Inter Franternity Council
and Senior Ball. IFC Ball features
booths constructed by every fra-
ternity to follow the theme of the
dance and a top band such as
Ralph Flanagan, who provided the
music at last year's event.
Seniors enjoy a final taste of
campus social life at their Senior
Ball. For them it marks the end
of countless good times that are a
destinguishing feature of Univer-
sity life.

With League Help
First semester social activities of
women residing in private Ann
Arbor homes usually are centered
about the Ann Arbor Girls' Club.
The club takes the place of
dorm life and is run in the same
manner as many other campus or-
ganizations except that one mem-
ber attends a weekly meeting with
representatives of the League

THIS DELEGATE is responsible
for informing the rest of the club
of current campus activities. Since
notices are generally posted in the
dorms, this is the only way the
Ann Arbor womnen may be in-
formed of campus events.
Ann Arbor coeds in recent
years have participated in many
campus activities through their

1950 received third place for their
satire, of fraternity life.
THE CLUB has often presented
football day open houses and teas
as part of its program. Ann Ar-
bor coed teams have also been en-
tered in the WAA basketball and
volleyball tournaments.
Along with activities on the
recreation and entertainment
side, the club has also helped in
many campus events. Tying
tags for campus elections and
taking charge of election booths
have been two of the many
projects of the club.
Again this fall, the club will
be organized under the direction
of Mrs. Leslie of the Office of the
Dean of Women. Janet Cambell of
Ann Arbor is organizing a get-to-
gether for early August to ac-
quaint prospective members with
the club.
The Ann Arbor Girls' Club is
open to any Ann Arbor-area coed
regardless of her class or sorori-
ty affiliation.

Coed Page Seeks Tryouts
Dear Freshmen and Transfer Women:
THE MICHIGAN DAILY, the University's daily newspaper, offers
an opportunity for you to join in extra-curricular fun and at the
same time to gain valuable experience in the newspaper realm. We,
who have worked on THE DAILY since we were freshmen tryouts,
are looking with regret to the day next year when we must hand
over our jobs to the new editors and leave the Student Publications
Building and all the pleasant and exciting experiences which we
have had here.
The Women's Page of THE DAILY provides the Michigan coeds
who tryout on the staff, the chance to write a great variety of articles.
We cover everything from the change in women's hours to the fes-
tivities of the annual J-Hop. All social events are publicized on our
page, plus the many and varied activities of such organizations as the
Michigan League, the Women's Athletic Association and University
Glee Clubs. We cover dances, concerts, co-recreational sports, campus
sings, teas and so many other activities that we never lack variety
for writing. This provides interesting beats for all our staffers, some
of whom are journalism majors, but many of whom vary in interests
from pre-medical studies to German.
It is evident from this that all that is needed to become a tryout
on the Women's Staff is genuine interest and a yen for writing. After
going through tryout training, which consists of learning THE DAILY
styles for writing stories and head line writing,.followed by actual
practice, women are promoted to the sophomore staff concerned pri-
marily with learning make-up and editing. From this staff the night
editors are appointed. These six women are responsible for preparing
the page for publication every day. Two of the night editors become
Women's Editor and Associate Women's Editor in their senior year.
Senior positions and night editorships are paid positions. The entire
staff is composed of approximately twenty women.
By this introduction to THE MICHIGAN DAILY and the Women's
page, we hope that you will want to join our staff and spend a pleasant
and profitable four years at the University of Michigan.
Hoping to see all you enthusiastic tryouts this fall . . .
Lorraine Butler, Women's Editor

ONE OF THE most popular
spots in Ann Arbor is the Arbor-

"Arb." Here students assemble for
parties, picnics in the spring and
skiing and tobogganing when the
snow is on the ground.
The Arb is especially popular
when spring arrives in town. The
many trees and flowering shrubs
make the spot one of the most
picturesque in Ann Arbor.
Another favorite scene of pic-
nics and parties is the Island, a
small park set in the middle of
the Huron River.
