Resume Of Last Year's Freshman
Pageant Is Given With
Rainbow Dance

Freshmen -women and their 'big
sisters' were entertained by the
sophomore class last night at the
annual Freshman spread, which
took place in Barbour gymnasium.
Decorated in the rival colors off
Michigan and Wisconsin, which
were carried out in banners,
streamers, and balloons, the gym-
nasium presented a festive appear-
ance. The freshmen women ar-
rived at 8 o'clock, and were greet-
ed at the door by their freshman-
week-advisers, who later escorted
them to meet the patronesses.
Dancing was from 8 to 11 o'clock,
and the grand march took place
at 9:15. Patronesses were escort-
ed by the sophomore women on
the spread committee in the grand
march, and the freshman week ad-
visers marched with the freshmen
women. Following the grand march
favors were given out at the end
of the gymnasium. Favors took
the form of minature footballs, the
freshmen being honored by wear-
ing maize and blue favors, while
the sophomores wore favors in the
colors of Wisconsin. The game this
afternoon will probably see the;

resulted in a 1 to 1 tie yesterday
afternoon on Palmer field. Al-
though the Martha Cook team
threatened to score several times,
they were not able to make the
goal until the last few minutes of
play. Attacks on the Alpha Epsi-
lon Phi goal were repeatedly stop-
ped by Weiss, Touff and Grabow-
sky, while Levy, Schwartz and
Bloom led the offense. Throughout
the game fine teamwork was shown
by the sorority team. Zauer scor-
ed for the dormitory, and Saurborn
frequently caried the bail.

At the same time a game between
Zeta Tau Alpha and Kappa Delta
resulted in a 1 to 0 victory for
Zeta Tau Alpha. Neither team
scored in the first half, and al-
though Kappa Delta threatened to
several times and kept the ball in
their opponents' territory, they
lacked the push to make the goal
The score was made by Cassidy
