Once more Stephanie sits down to review another week-end of social
activity .. . and all in all it was a pretty good week-end with a few parties
in a number of fraternity and sorority houses. Of course . . . we may be
wrong . . . but it is our guess that there will be somewhat of a lull from
this point on until J-Hop.
One of the highlights of the week-end was the party given by Mrs.
George W. Patterson Friday night at her home on Hill St. The dance was
given in honor of her granddaughter Patty Haff . . . Mrs. Patterson was
gowned in clack velvet . . . and Patty . . . who attended with Reed Alex-
ander .. . chose a formal of coral chiffon. Louise Cline was escorted by
George Russell. Among the other guests present were Becky Bursley with
John McLean . . . Mary Wickes with Henry Luthe . and Mary Wheat
and Frederick Vogt.
A t The Sigma Nu House. . .
The Sigma Nus had quite a gay party Friday night . . . people streamed
in in a continuous line all evening. As we walked in the door we met Pat
Potter and Mike Sharp . . . Pat was wearing blue lame and we saw her a
little later talking to Barbara Spalding . . . Barbara was also in blue . . .
only her formal was a combination of blue taffeta and net. Between dances
we stopped in the hall to talk to Charlotte Huuk and Don Alexander . . .
Charlotte had on a very good looking formal of wine velvet shirred at the
neck . . . and incidentally Janet Fullenwider was there too and she also was
wearing wine velvet with a gold cord at the waist. Mary Bulla and Spike
Nelson came up and joined the group just as we were about to wander on
but we did have a chance to notice that Mary's dress was a black formal
with a halter neck.
The room in which they were dancing was surrounded with a balcony
and it was a grand place to stand and see just who all was there.
Adeline Singleton. . . who was in black net . . . danced by with Bob Merrill.
Hope Hartwig was with Jack Sinn. . . Marlene Fingerle was there in white
trimmed at the neck and waist in red . . . Margaret Ayers chose wine velvet
. .. and Dorothy Curtis wore a gold lame blouse over a black shirt. And
now on to the next party.
The Pi Phi pledges entertained the actives at a dance at the house on
Saturday night and everyone seemed to have an unusual amount of pep.
Barbara Hanna and Duck Norman . . . Beth Ranney and Dick Coons . . .
and Sue Johnson and Rice Fitzpatrick all arrived a bit late and by the
time they go there there was a long receiving line waiting to greet them at
the door. The idea seems to have been instigated by Grace Snyder and Tor
Nordenson and others that we will not mention just now.
Eating On The Stairway.. ..
Everyone took time off about 11 p.m. to eat and as we were hunting
around for a place to sit before we spilled our coffee we saw that a group
consisting of Ruth Kennedy and Floyd Sweet . . . Betty Scherling and
Harold Love . . . Mardy Steen and Phil Ordway. . . and Ruth Ann Jernegan
and Russ Runquist had found plenty of room on the stairs.
Among those who danced at the League this week-end were Bryant
Ruthven and Alice Bassett . . . Alice wore a wine tailored silk dress . . .
Mary Kelkenny . . . who wore a long black velvet ... Dorothy Wikel .. .
who chose green silk . . and Marion Dailey who was in red crepe. And
on Saturday night Ruth Rich was there with Sheldon Drennan and Ruth
looked very attractive in green crepe with tiny gold bows relieving the
neckline. We also saw Louise Paine and Doris Wismer there . . Louise was
wearing an aquamarine tunic over a black skirt.
Martha Cook held their annual winter supper formal Saturday night
and among those who attended the party were Irene Sartor . . . who wore
white chiffon cut on flowing lines . . . was there with John Schaumberger
. . Ruth Le Roux was with Edward Rae and they stood chatting at the
end of the long hall . .. The chairman of the dance Virginia York . . .
chose a stunning dress with a black crepe skirt and a white georgette blouse
. . .we noticed Dorothy McDonald and John Clarke joining the dancers
. . . On the floor Audrey Talsma and Tom Linden seemed to be enjoying
the music . . . Ruth Bertsch and Howard Lyly agreed with the rest . . . it
was a grand party.
In The Rainbow Roo m...
The Rainbow Room attracted a good crowd Saturday night and a
number of campus groups had tables . . . in the Phi Psi crowd we noticed
Dave Barnett and Harriet Shackleton . . . Harriet looked stunning in black
crepe with a clever gold chain at the neckline . . . Betty Shaffer was also
there with Steve Mason . .. have you noticed Betty and Steve dancing?
. . . they really are very good . . . Mary Agnew and Bob Sankey seemed
very interested in the candle drippings as they sat at the table . . . they
were joined presently by John Carstens and Jane Servis who came up with
Dora Ann Day and Ed De Vine . . .
On the floor we noticed Dorothy Barrett in a lovely turquoise dress
with white collar and cuffs of military braid . . . Dorothy was dancing
with Russel Heyl. .. Bob Carney and Dorothy Briscoe passed nearby . . .
Dorothy was wearing a green skirt with a silver blouse . . . During the floor
show everyone dragged up chairs to watch the performance . . . Mary An-
drew and Tommy Ayers thoroughly approved of the tap dancer . .. as did
all the others . . . Ginny Swift and George Harris put in their vote for
Singing Sam .. .
The Engineers had a table originally for six but before the evening was
over they welcomed some of the Lawyers and increased its capacity to double
the number . . . Bob Andrew and Betty Furbeck took turns sitting at the
table with Ray Brett and Jean Finlayson . . . Jean wore a lovely printed
velvet and Betty had on a black skirt with a gold satin blouse .. .
Dal Dalaker and Mary McKay joined the group and had difficulty getting
within two feet of the table . . . Russ Coward and Louis Sprague
were sitting nearby enjoying the pause between dances . .
As the music resumed we noticed Shirley Hepler and Roy Hogan.
Shirley was wearing blue crepe . . . strolling back to the floor. . . Art Shep-
ard and Dorothy Webb also welcomed the music and joined the crowd on the
floor . . . The Union was a pleasant place this week end . . .

Terry-Cloth And Flannel
Are Comfortable For
By BETTY STRICKROOT
Only two more weeks remain until
that dreaded fortnight that occurs
at thesend of each semester. Re-
gardless of how little studying the
women are accused of thoughout the
year, during finals it is an accepted
fact that everybody must study. If
deep concentration is necessary to
the mastery of stubborn facts, com-
fort is necessary to deep concentra-
There are varying opinions as to the
most comfortable clothes to wear
when hitting the books. Some girls
prefer their regular school clothes,
others like lounging pajamas or robes,
and still others prefer just ordinary
pajamas. Whichever you prefer, you
can find the answer to your desire
tailored for warmth and comfort.
Terry Cloth Is Good
For those who prefer lounging pa-
jamas there are various styles in many
different materials. One very prac-
tical pair is made of fine terry cloth
with a crew neck, straight top, and
belted at the waist with a cord of
the same material. Though per-
fectly plain, they are very good
looking and in chocolate brown they
give a strong impression of a very
comfortable teddy bear. Lounging
pajamas in corduroy are also prac-
tical additions to a college women's
wardrobe. These come in almost
every shade and in either one or two
pieces, as you prefer. A very in-
teresting looking pair has large wood-
en buttons up the front fastening
under a small peter pan collar.
Bright colors seem to predominate
in the satin pajamas this year. Dark
trousers with a contrasting top are
a strong favorite. A lovely pair with
black trousers and green top is fash-
ioned along Russian lines. A wide
band of braid runs in two columns
up the front forming a small stand up
collar. Another pair on more tailored
lines is made of heavy blue satin
lined for added warmth and quilted
in a clever geometrical design.
Flannel robes are a campus fa-
vorite. The tailored robe in two
shades of almost any color is familiar
to every college woman, and is really
a great asset to warmth and com-
fort. A little variation in this favorite
robe is shown in flannel with a tie
belt, small collar and for interesting
detail a large round button with
your monogram cut out of wood.
Comfortable For Study
Flannel pajamas or the well-knowvn
balbriggans are useful because they
do not need ironing after they are
laundered. This time saving asset is
a boon to college women. For those
students who like best to crawl in
bed to study they are just the thing.
Warm bunny slippers are an aid
to those unfortunates who have to
sit up late and type a thesis or copy
their notes. These soft comfortable
shoes may be had with or without
heels, as you prefer, and in either
leather or velvet.
Examination time is coming and
with it the demand for study, so get
comfortable in your favorite loung-
ing clothes and prepare to pass those
