LEERING HORSE: Some of the huge balloon figures, particularly large ferocious ones like this horse, frightened some of the small fry who crowded along the line of march. Paraders had some strenuous exercise "riding" or "chaperoning" their large charges. By the end of the parade, many were almost too tired to lunge the amusing animal figures at the appreciative spectators, young and old. (Other pictures on page 24.)

FIRST PRIZE FLOAT: "Tarzan and his Apes," and swimming-suit clad damsels (they were wishing for ski suits) awaiting their fate in a "boiling kettle" were characterized in yesterday's Michigras parade by Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity and Delta Delta Delta sorority to win first place among parade floats. Palm trees, flowers, grass and a "cannibal" completed the jungle scene. It wasn't only the threat of being "boiled alive" that made the girls shiver, but the day's chilly breezes as well.
