Footall Game, Sorority






With Michigan winning the football game . . . and sorority pledge lists
coming out. . . Saturday proved to be a very exciting day. Everybody went
to the game with high hopes . .. that good old Michigan spirit is definitely
coming back to normal . . . and after the game the sorority houses were
filled with anxious alums and actives awaiting the good news.
Grove Cannon and Nancy Olds and Tommy Anketell and his wife Bar-
bara were among those who lunched at the Zete house before the game. In
the mob ... all trying to get to their seats before the kick off .. . we caught a
glimpse of Helen Shapland . . . Ruth Boomhower . .. Barb Bates . . . Bill
Weeks ... Bud Haynes .. and Harriet Heath. There was a great variety
of outfits chosen for the game . . . and nine out of ten people failed to get
together with the weather man, because it wasn't long before most of the
spectators decided to shed their coats.
After the game a number of people treked up to the Chi Psi house to
dance. We saw Jane Willoughby ... Marian Baxter ... Helen Zabel
and Harriet Hathaway all there. It seems as though the Delta Gams and the
Chi Psis are getting together pretty well this year ....

Crowds Pack Union....
Saturday night the Union was packed .. . And the League was turning
people away by the score . .. my, what these football weekends do for this
town. At the Union . . . Jacqueline Kolle, Vassar transfer, was with Bob
Rogers. Jacqueline wore a black crepe dress with a red crepe vestee. Also
in black were Peg Strickler.. . Louise Paine ... and Ada Crawford, whose
dress was brightened by sequins at the neckline.
Amid the dim ever-changing lights in the ballroom we picked out Eliz-
abeth Rorke and Betty Spengler who were both in red. Ducky-Wucky
Baird was there . . . and Red Underwood and Ed Ruff were ambling about
looking pleased with the world. Peg Bartley was in town for the week-end
... and Louise Florez ... Margaret Lowry .... Betty Crist .. . and Jean
Bertram all chose blue for their Saturday night rendezvous
Now . . . at the League . . we saw ex-president Max Maynard looking
very smart in a green suit with a red fox fur. At a table filled with lawyers
we saw Betty Scherling and Harold Love.. . Helen Wilson and Frank Barn-
ako . . . 4melia Martin and A. D. Kennedy . . . and Don Anderson and
Cy Hetsko.
Dancing about under those silver globes that cast their little bits of
mirrored light about the floor and ceiling . .. have you ever watched people
gradually getting dizzy trying to chase those things round and round the
ballroom... . we saw Madeline Coe in black ... Marcia Connell ... Frances
Mary Robinson-. . . .and Jean Laitner.

Everyone Was There .. .
Everyone seemed to be there ... and yet it was really hard trying to
talk to anyone who was there. Tables were in every possible corner and all
packed ... people were milling about in an effort to dance .. . but all in
all a great time seemed to be had by all . . . and what an effort it was for
all those sorority members to keep from talking to all their new pledges.
The A.T.O.'s had a table at the League . . . and among those who were
huddled about it were Jeane Gibbs with Bill Fleming .. . Mary Jane Sul-
livan with Bill Slattery . . . Jane Mougey with Dick Wangelin . . . and Ella
Wade with Don Wangelin.
Friday night at the Union we saw Jean Nelson in black crepe ... Jean
Greenwald . . . Priscilla Abbott, whose sister Marie conducted a University
tour through Italy this summer . . . Eleanor Guessner, who appeared in
Sophisticated Lady in the last issue of Gargoyle . . . she wore a light blue
taffeta with a stand up collar ... Jane Fletcher ... Mary Stanley ... who
wore deep red velvet . . . and Betty Kay Jones looking very grand with her
blond hair contrasted with her black dress.
Carol Feldes and Ralph Lamberson were seen looking about for a place
to sit between dances. Marlene Fingerle was there with Bob Claflin . .
who sang during the floor show. Marlene was in a plum colored semi-
formal. Florence Schenck was there with Joe Sahlmark. Among the new
students that were there .. . we saw Betty Hunter in green ... Phylis Bower,
who seems to be enjoying the hours here after her 10 o'clock limit last year,
in a flowered print of navy and write . . . and Jean Waterston in a tailored
green crepe ....

Tables For Two...
At the League John Healey and Betty Walsh were together .. . down-
stairs we had a chance to say hello to Judy Trosper . . . she was looking
very lovely in black ... and in the hallway Ann Gifford was sitting at a little
table for two.
While we were waiting to find our table we had a brief second to stop
and chat to a group of Pi Phis and Lawyers who had reserved quite a lengthy
table by the door ... in the party were Barbara Hanna ... Henry McDonald
... Virginia Benedict.. . Bill Murphy ... and Al Early We also got a glimpse
of Virginia Nimmo as she danced by us
Between dances Jennie Peterson and Jean Bell usually managed to get
together to discuss this and that ... Jennie was wearing a brown crepe dress
with a gold pattern running through it ... Jean was in green. Jane Hardy
was also there .... it certainly was a rather nerve wracking evening for the
active members of the various sorority houses . . . all one could do was to
look . . . pray . . . and smile at all the rushees who might be possible
Stanford Gets Together.. .
Sitting at a table right near the orchestra we saw Ruth Ann Jernegan
and Russ Runquist . . . and Barbara Stewart and Doug Bryant . . . Doug
transferred here this fall from Stanford in California . .. and Barbara was
a transfer from there the year before.
Eleanor French ... who looks very much like her sister Louise . . . was
dancing with John Park ... Betty Bertoli was in black velvet ... Marian
Saunders was about . . . and we just couldn't help but notice Barbara Teall
as she passed our table between dances. She had on a wool dress that
matched her hair to perfection. . . you know . . . sort of a rusty auburn ...
hard to describe . . . yet very lovely.
Maryanna Chockley, who was in charge of upperclass transfers during
orientation period, was at the League . . . wearing a gold metallic blouse
over a black velvet skirt. Speaking of auburn hair . . . we also saw Maxine
Peterson there . . . and her hair is a grand shade . . . and also on the dance
floor ... we caught a glimpse of Don Patterson.
Chubbs was doing quite well by itself this week-end too . . . it proves
to be the stamping ground for a good many people night after night. Sunday
night used to be the big night there . . . and perhaps still is the biggest
night. .. . but Friday and Saturday are now almost equally popular ..
and have you noticed the big parties of people that are coming together ..
it is quite the thing now-a-days for all the brethren of a fraternity to
gather their clan and their dates about one huge table . . . and what a time
is had by all.
After The Game.. ..
Last Saturday among those who froliced there were Alice Stebbins and
