ichigras, "the weekend when"
yone puts their books away,"
ild be bigger and better than
this year, according to the
irmen. '
arvby Lapides, '60, and Joan
halski, '60A&D, co-chairmen
the weekend described the
kend as "Like Mardi Gras in
r Orleans, with costumes,
be and everyone being merry."
:ichigras begins on Friday
it, they explained; when, aft-

er weeks of work and preparation,
the weekend is opened with a
huge parade, made up of floats
from housing unit teams.
Arralige Teams
The teams, for both floats and
booths, are made up of one male
and one female housing unit. The
teams work together both for the
parade and for the' carnival.
Friday night, the carnival be-
gins. Outside Yost Field House
there is the Midway with amuse-
ment rides of all kinds.

"Last time," Lapides recalled,
"they had a ride that worked on
centrifugal force. It spun you
round and round, raising the
platform each time, until you
were spinning horizontally."
We always keep the rides above
the children's level, by getting
really good companies, with ex-
citing amusements, they added,
Set Up Booths
Inside the field house, the
teams have all kinds of booths
set up. There are booths where

you can get food, in unusual set-
tings which follow the theme 9f
Michigras, there are skill booths
which allow you to test your abil-
ities in original ways.
Saturday morning is left to
sleep, and the afternoon has tra-
ditionally been for private pic-
nics and individual entertain-
ment away from the center of
activity.
This year, however, the co-
chairmen . hope to introduce an
innovation to the weekend. "We
would like. to stage a revue,"
Lapides explained, "a variety
show."
Winning Acts
This show would present the
winning acts from various other
campus events, such as Lantern
Night, the IFC Sing, and others.
,They added that they would
want to hire ,a star comedian,
"soieone like Bob Hope or Jerry
Lewis," to be master of ceremo-
nies for the revue, which would
be held in Ferry Field
Saturday night is the climax of
the weekend. The carnival con-
tinues, all booths are open, and,
late in the evening, prizes are
awarded to the winners in all
divisions.
Michigrasf comes to campus
every alternate year. "It is far
too big to be handled every year,"
Lapides said. Last year was the
year for Spring Weekend, a week-
end of contests and dances spon-
sored by the Union and the Wo-
men's Athletic Association.
Michigras began as a County
Fair in 1902, sponsored by the
WAA and the "M, Club as a fund
raising project.-

MICHIFUN-The I-M Building is the scene of the ldichigras carnival, the closing event in the spectacular weekend. Here, in the I
brightly-lit room, housing unit pairs vie with each other to see which pair can put up the best booth, draw the most customers,
provide the most fun for the visitors who swarm through the room. And, incidentally, win the grand prize. Michi-anything is the v
for Michigras weekend, when every campus phrase finds itself preceded by the magic prefix "Michi-".

SPECTACULAR--The I-M Building glitters with the combined lights of gaiety inside and ma
outside. The carnival atmosphere surrounds the building, creeping out of windows that lead to I
brightness inside. Here, two of the rides whicl# dot the athletic field lend their glow to a bianni
scene which leaves Michigan breathless for a whole year.
