A series of huge, inflated balloons lent an unusual air to the Michigras parade yesterday heralding the 1952 two-day carnival which concludes tonight in Yost Fieldhouse. The balloons became part of the parade through the cooperation of the Ann Arbor Chamber of Commerce and the Retail Merchants Association.

The girls of Kappa Alpha Theta sorority commemorated the ruins of Haven Hall, old-time University campus building which burned June 6, 1950, in their float in the Michigras parade held yesterday afternoon. The float drew honorable mention from the judges. A placard, perhaps as a note of warning to future fire hazards, was attached to the side: "Romance Language Will Be Next."
