Union Attracts Large

irong For First Big

Formal Dance Of Yea

, __



Panhellenic Chairman

{erry -SGo R2nd

Everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy the first big formal of the year
... the Union Formal. The ballroom was simply but effectively decorated
with a large silver "M" which hung over the orchestra. . . and on the side
wall was a round "M" Union plaque in maize and blue . .. upon which
shone a square of light.
A number of girls came in from out-of-town . .. Margaret Mustard
. . . who graduated last June . . . came back to attend the dance with
Jack McCarthy. Dorothy Shutt drove in from Detroit to go with Rush
Bowman, and Wencel Neumann's date . . . Ruth Judson .. . was also
a week-end guest.
As we made our way to the ballroom we passed Barbara Spencer and
Bing Carey ... Barbara was in black crepe . . . which made a striking
contrast to her blond hair. Charlotte Hamilton and Dick Mavis were also
hurrying to hear Danny Russo's orchestra . . Charlotte's formal was a
lovely shade of blue. Sitting in the hall we got a wee glimpse of Ann
Timmon's white crepe formal . . . Ann wears white so well and somehow
white on her always reminds us of the J.-Hop. . . year before last .. .
when she was the guest of Chairman Phil Singleton . . remember the white
lace she wore that night .. She was with Dana Seeley.
Chatting Here And T'here .. .
Dorothy Webb and Bill Fredericks were wandering about seeing how
many of their friends they could find to chat with . . . Dorothy was looking
very lovely in a grand shade of maroon . . . and it wasn't hard to pick out
Ruth Ann Christiansen in her pink formal . . . she was with that tall
very blond Dick Josselin . . . they seemed to be quite enjoying the
floor show ''.
As usual Jack Healy and Betty Walsh were together . . . Betty was in
black velvet trimmed with tucked white lace . . . and so were Giny
Eaglesfield and Johnny Strayer. We saw John and Giny in the tap
room getting a little change of atmosphere and something cooling to drink
.. .Giny was in pale blue with two large pink flowers at the neck. Also
downstairs . .. we saw Marie Mette in black with sequence trim - - .
Marie was there with Dick Fox.
In The Ping Pong Room...
The ping pong room was open . . . and a good many people broke up
the monotony of continual dancing with a fast game. We stopped for a
minute to watch Harriet Shackleton and Fred Buesser hitting the tiny ball
back and forth . . . Harriet's bright red formal had a black velvet bow at
the neck. And at the next table we saw Elizabeth Ronal in a blue satin also
playing ping pong. It is really quite a novel idea . . . combining that
great indoor game with good orchestras and formals.
And then just loads of people were at the League that night too.
Maryanna Chockley . .. who was with Jim Tuttle . . was wearing brown
crepe with a fur trimmed jabot . . . and sitting at the same table we saw
Mary Rall in black crepe with a rhinestone belt. And at another table
nearby Doris Hoyt and Fred Charlton were sitting together . . . Doris in
black with a white frill around the neck.
One of the Foursomes...
Another little foursome that was together for the evening consisted,
of Jean Keineth and Bob Laitner . . . and Jean Hatfield and Willis Tom-
linson. Jean Keineth wore a brown print and a brown hat ... and Jean1
Hatfield was in black with a white collar . . . two Jeans in one party isl
apt to be a bit confusing. And on the dance floor we saw Helen Purdy
in a long blue sapphire velvet with rhinestone clips dancing with Bob1
Eberback. Just after we observed Helen, Barbara Teall and Bill Combs
danced by apparently wrapped up in an interesting discussion of some
sort ... Barbara was wearing black with accents of white lace.
And another frequenter of the League Grill. . . or so it appears. . . at
least we see him there quite a bit . . . is Henry McDonald . . . he escorted
Janet Wells on this occasion . . . and Janet was very attractive in a black
velvet skirt with a metallic striped taffeta blouse. Betty Schaffer was there
in a red tunic and a black skirt . . . and Betty Rich chose a navy bluet
crepe with a white lace collar.
At The Phi Delt Table ...
Chubbs was also a pretty gay place over the week-end ... On Saturday
there were the usual run of fraternity tables. The first group that we sawt
as we came in were some of the Phi Delts and their dates. . . Grace Snyderc
was there with Bob Young . . . who seemed to be keeping the whole tableI
pretty well amused by his endless collection of jokes. . . Grace was wearing
a yellow and brown checked wool. Mary Margaret Campbell . . . in greenl
crepe .. . was with Boyd Bolitho. . . Jane Edmonson and King Lewis were
together . .r. and JaneBertram .. . who was wearing a jade green crepe
... was escorted by John Yantias ... a Southerner.
And at the next table there were quite a few Theta Delts . . . halft
of whom seemed to be stag . . . and it was rather difficult deciding whoI
was with who . .. anyways Alice Slinghuff was sitting next to George -
Appleyard quite a bit of the time ... Grafton Sharp ... Sharpy to most(
people . . . Chuck Kennedy . . . and Julie Kane . .. who was in blackf
with a lace collar were also on the party.
On The Dance Floor ...
Mary Jane Brotherton wheezed by us on her way to the very crowded
dance floor . . . she was wearing a green checked wool . . and we got a
fleeting glimpse of Lola Campbell on the dance floor in red. There were also
a group of Thetas sitting together at a table near the floor . . . Mary Mc-f
Ivor in black . . . Mary Jean Pardee was in black and white ... Mary Gar-t
retson's black dress was trimmed in gold sequence ... and Mary O'Brian wasn
wearing a brown crepe and a brown hat with furaround the edge.7
Gretchen Kanter was there with Bill Doremus and Jo Wilcox and Johnp
Seeley were together. . . Gretchen wore a tan light wool with a Peter Pant

collar and a dusty pink blouse. Eleanor Peschke was wearing black, with a
white trim . . . and she was with Frank Simes. Jane Lesselwong was)
dancing with Bob Mead . . . Jane was in black crepe with a black taffeta
That is all for now . . . but with hotnecoming and ,the Interfraternity
Ball next weekend we will perhaps have lots of news next time.

Betty Rich, '36, was the chairman
of the Panhellenic Banquet held
last night in the ballroom of the
League. Miss Rich is a member of
Alpha Chi Omega sorority.
