Sororities' Activities
Coordinated by Panel

ESHMEN COMPETE-Each spring the women of the freshman class are divided-into Maize and Blue teams-for Frosh Weekend.
ove, the teams (Maize on the left, Blue on the right) rehearse for the floor show each presents during a jointly-sponsored dance.
Ulcbever team is judged the winner during the event, it is certain that members of both enjoy every minute of it.
eague Sponsors Yearly Class Projects

Each year Women's League
sponsors four class projects which
include Frosh Weekend, Soph
Show, Junior Girls Play, and
Benior Night.
Held in the spring of the year,
freshmen women compete with
eadh other to give the best all-
around campus dance.
Originating as a dance drama,
the first Frosh Weekend was pre-
sented at Sunset on Palmer Field
as a freshman class project. Later
Assembly and Panhellenic Board
combined ideas and organized

Teams Choose Theme
Each team chooses a theme
which it carries throughout the
entire evening. The teams are
judged on a point system based
on decorations, program, publi-
city, attendance, and floorshow.
The .weekend's major event is the
two dances held in the League1
Ballroom. The room is divided,
into parts one side decorated by1
the Maize, the other by the Blue.

There is always much suspense
and excitement until the results
of the judges are announced in
The Daily Sunday morning.
Last spring the Blue team cap-
tured the coveted prize for the
weekend, with a floorshow featur-
ing the adventures of Little Blue
Boo-a little man who ran into all
kinds of problems in getting his
land of Ableuvia accepted as the
51st state in the union.
The Maize team featured the
antics of the Southern Belle fam-
ily in a florshow entitled "Below
the Maize 'N Dixon Line." Fortun-
ately the surveyor, Mr. Dixon, mis-
calculated when he put the South-
ern Belle plantation north of the
line-but many enjoyable scenes
were enacted before everything
was straightened out.
Soph Show is another musical
production presented as the an-
nual sophomore class project.
Originally similar to the Junior
Girl's Play, Soph Show featured
an all-women's cast. It took the
form of a cabaret type of enter-
tainment usually found in French
taverns, providing an evening of
dancing, card games, various
booths, refreshments and a floor
show.
Modified In 1954
In 1954, the class project was
modified to Soph Show Scandals
and from there it evolved into a
coed musical with the assistance
of the men's organization in the
fall of 1957.
The Junior Girls Play is the
oldest original production on
campus. It had its beginning over
fifty years ago when a half dozen
junior coeds presented a play in
which they depicted various
members of the senior class.

However, JGP did not begin
to be an annual affair until 1915.
The girls donned men's clothes
and presented a musical produc-
tion. The tradition was continued
throughout the 'twenties and on
into the 'thirties. JGP was the
first show to be presented in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Provding seniors with one last
"get-together," Senior Night Cen-
tral Committee invites all senior
women to dinner and entertain-
ment at the maiden performance
of the JGP.
Determine Attachment
That - evening all women come
decorated with their "degree of
attachment." Married women
blow out candles, engaged women
suck lemons, pinned women ex-
change fraternity pins for safety
pins and unattached women re-
ceive a corfi to "keep plugging"
after they drop a penny for every
year of their age in a wishing well.
After reminiscing on their col-
lege experiences, the seniors ad-
journ to the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre to watch the JOP and can
request repeats of their favorite
songs and lines.
