THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Dances And Choral Union Opening Are Features Of Busy We
erg - o -o nd
If you are having a hard time getting a call into the various sorority
houses and dormitories, you may guess that a lot of Michigan men are
lobking about for dates for the two big dances that are coming off in the
immcdiate future . .. namely . . . the Union Formal and the Interfraternity
Ball. All of which goes to prove that the campus social life is still whirling.. ..
and the Merry-Go-Round is gaining momentum ...
Fraternity TabWs.. .
The Phi Psis and the Trigons took the prize at the League last Friday
night . . . both houses had long tables that wound about in the far end of
the Grill. Quite a few of the Phi Psis went stag . . . Dave Barnett . . . Bud
Haynes ... Carl Fisher ... and a few others spent no end of time standing
together on the side lines discussing which co-ed would be their next victim.
And on the dance floor . .. you just couldn't help but glance now and again
at Bill Griffith and Mimi Robinson . . . it is really quite fascinating at times
to watch the way Griff sways from side to side when he dances.
Mary Agnew with Bob Sankey.. .and Esh Greenwood with Barry Bara-
gaw . . . passed our table as they came in. Of course . . . they too were
headed for the Phi Psi table. . . where Libbie Powers.. . and Adeline Single-
ton were also sitting. Both girls were in black velvet. . . and Mary . . by the
way ... looked very smart in a green crepe with accents of brown.
Paging Tommy Ayres ...
And now for the Trigons . . . of course everybody knows that Tommy
Ayres was among those present . . . thanks to the orchestra . . . and some
innocent person on the telephone who had him paged . . . it's good publicity
anyway, Tommy. We also notice that you did right by yourself in picking
Jane Peter, the attractive Delta Gamma, for a dancing partner. And
what would those nine fraternity brothers do without you? We understand
you got Helen Wilson and Charlie Keppel together . . . to say nothing
of Baton Slater and Marjorie Lehner . . . Chuck Lovett didn't seem to have
any trouble keeping himself amused with "Dutch" Van Dyke. And it
rather goes without saying that Johnnie Mann and Mary Lou Willoughby
don't exactly need a middleman . . . Lovely Margaret Lowery's height was
enhanced by a blue velvet gown, while Jean Rheinfrank - a Pi Phi pledge
- wore one of those popular combinations, a black velvet skirt and a dusty
Back Again.. .
Art Shepherd . . . who seems to be back in town for a while . . . was
right up in the front row when Al Cowan's boys put on their little skit ...
singing or whistling. .. we don't know which they really do . . . into bottles.
The star performer used as his instrument a huge coke bottle . . . one of
those great big things they put in drug store windows. Almost everyone was
packed around them trying to look over someone else's head . . . but we did
get a peek at Jean Laitner, whose green dress had a brilliant piece at the
neck and gave the effect of a neckline . . . Marcia Connell . . . who keeps
all those curls in a surprisingly regular condition . . . had on a bright red
dinner dress that was open at the shoulders
The opening night of the Choral Union Series was quite an event
and the house was packed. All four of the Opera singers said that they
liked singing for Ann Arbor students . . . because they are all so eager and
enthusiastic. The first concert was certainly well received . . .and the
people were all on the edges of their seats when "I Mulattieri" was sung.
Among the faculty members that were present were President and Mrs.
Alexander G. Ruthven ... Mrs. Ruthven wore a gown of black chiffon -. .
President and Mrs. Charles A. Sink ... Prof. and Mrs. Joseph Brinkman and
Betty Brinkman . . . Prof. and Mrs. Palmer Christian ... and Prof. Hanns
Among the students we saw . . . Barbara Bates . . . who wore a green
dinner dress with green lace about the shoulders and neckline . . . Nancy
Cook ... Beth Ranney in purple . . . Peg Cowie . . . Betty Greve with the
golden hair . . . took time off from her major iterest, riding . . . you know
she had been all afternoon judging the horsemanship of aspiring members
to the Crop and Saddle . .. and Christine Kennedy looked out through the
little brown veil in amazement at the Empire gown worn by Miss Queena
'You Keep Going Your Way'..
After the concert, people went their various ways . . . but the Union
drew quite a few . . . Helen Strand and Jack McCarthy passed us as they
leisurely strolled in the direction of the library. Helen was dressed in black
. her dress being trimmed in fur... Marian Donaldson was in blue ... as
was Eleanor Johnson. The latter's dress was trimmed in a darker blue
velvet. Downstairs we stopped for a brief moment to say "hello" to Betty
Morgan and incidentally had a chance to notice her brown-crepe afternoon
dress with white .edging the collar.0

for several years a sailor, a journalist,
a photographer, and a stone mason,
and he never enjoyed educational
advantages beyond the lower schools.
He belongs to the realistic writers,
but possesses a sanity and good sense
that keep him from indulging in
nauseating details. He reminds one
slightly of Strindberg, in that he
often deals with the supposed in-
evitable conflict between man and
wife, but he avoids the partisanship
and the acrimony of the Swede. '.

all those horns ... confetti ... and what not a. surprise. Mary Jane Field
and Watson Gilpin stood up on chairs to get a better view of the floor show
... and Eleanor Gessner and Dick Stickney were seen getting themselves
some horns so that they could join in the fun. Bob Carney and Bill Paine
were talking together in the lower hall (while waiting for their dates) .
Frances Robinson, the gal with the surprising dimples was drinking a
Boston cooler . .. It was a real party.
