One our our pet psychology profs used this column to illustrate a point
in one of his lectures yesterday. He was talking about different types of
people . . . and said that there were those who always made it a point
to wave at Stephanie and speak to her so that she would be sure and see
them and put their names in the paper as being among those present .. .
and then there were those who did not consider this sort of thing the proper
thing to do. It seems as though Stephanie will have to start looking around
in the dark corners from now on and try and find these modest souls .. .
because we have a sneaking suspicion that they really wouldn't object . . .
or are we wrong?
The Union was as gay as usual Friday night. Stephanie noticed a few
Psi U's and dates at a table in the corner . . Larry Briggs . . Adelaide
Ely and Margaret Hiscock with Bob Rogers were amusing the rest of
the crowd playing a very complicated game. Elsie Reeder . . . Sandy Me-
pherson . . . Marty Steen and Phil Oidway were the much-amused on-
lookers. At a table next to them were a group of illustrious Theta Delts . . .
They were also being playful . . . trying to raise the table with their little
fingers. Jane O'Ferrall and Wemmer Gooding were among the participants
. . . along with Jane Lord . . . Bob Garrels . . . Bill McHenry and Nelson
Persons. Nelson was the center of much discussion trying to determine
whether her dress was green or blue.
Chatting In The Foyer*. .
Doris Bolton, Vince Butterly, Barbara Teall and Johnny Schaumberger
were chatting in the foyer. Ted Fraser . . . Nancy Siebert were noticed
strolling around at intermission . . . Betty Gatward and Frank Danne-
miller was seen dancing gaily about . . . and Virginia Ostermann with John
Marley were also attracting a bit of attention with their complicated steps.
Somehow Stephanie couldn't resist the lure of the Union and so she
dropped in there again Saturday night. Barbara Strand was vocalizing
and Darwin McCredie was sitting in the foyer patiently waiting for her to
finish. Among the couples present were Charlotte Hamilton and Dick
Mavis. . . Pat Potter and Mike Sharpe . . . Nancy Stonington and Bill Lyon.
Dancing to the music of Bob Steinle Stephanie noticed Marjorie Link and
Bill Slattery . . . Alys Pierce with Chuck Hopkins . . . Alys had on a green
print dress ... Eleanor French and Ross Faulkner came in . . . after spend-
ing the first part of the evening selling peanuts at the Penny Carnival.
At The S.A.E. House.--
The S.A.E.'s also did a bit of partying Friday night. One thing we like
about their 'dances is the climb to their thirdfloor which they use for
dancing . . . It is at least a bit different. On the way up we passed Mar-
guerite Ganzhorn and Scotty Watt . . . Marguerite was dressed in green
crepe with which she wore green and gold costume jewelry. Kay Shields
dashed by with San Ladd . . . and Marcia Connell was with Bill Deramus
. . . Marcia looking very lovely in a bright print. On the dance floor we saw
the younger of those two popular Heaths dancing with Phil Newman .. .
and Bob Campbell . . . stag for the evening . . . or at least we think he was
. . seemed to be enjoying it.
Over in one corner of the room Grace Snyder and Don Pomeroy . . .
who came up from Cleveland for the week-end . . . were standing talking
to Betty Van Winkle and Frank Persons . . . and as we migrated around
the room we passed Gretchen Kanter and Ross MacPherson . . . another
couple on the dance floor was Lillian Shulsky and Dr. George Meyer . .
Lillian wore a green and brown print. But now for Saturday night.
Stephanie dropped into the League Saturday night and met a host of
old friends as usual . . . spring was in the air and was very noticeable
in the bright prints and lovely pastels of many of the dancers . . . we
noticed Virginia Mulholland in gray and red print dancing with John
Brennan. . . they had a table with Nancy Kover and Bob Blackburn -. -
Nancy was wearing a lovely outfit in brown and beige . . . also at the same
table were Helen Jesperson and Bob Andrew . . . apparently Bob picks up
a few trick dance steps every week.
We noticed the new sign language that has swept over the campus
was much in vogue at several tables . . . as far as Stephanie is concerned
the only thing that can be said in its favor is that it does while away the
hours. At one table we noticed Lucille Johnston illustrating "The Broken
Record" for the benefit of Lloyd Parr . . . he didn't seem to appreciate
it .. . Betty Sparks at the same table was showing the crowd the version
of "Farewell to Arms" . . . her date. . . Don Adams . . .. suggested at that
point that they dance.
The Dekes had a table at the far end of the room and seemed to be
enjoying themselves no end . . . Chris Everhardus and Angel Maliszewski
were among those present . . . Angel looked very springlike in a gray satin
dress with a tiny black print . . . . Dorothy Utley and the basketball star
Earl Townsend were at the same table . . . another twosome was Ella
Wade and Lee Moore.
At Penny Carnival . .
The dance floor was pretty well crowded when they started the song that
refuires everyone to count . . . you know. . . 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, . . . uh, uh 8, 9 . .
woof, woof, etc., way on up . . . Virginia Whitney and Jack Cooper tried it
but we noticed they missed around 27 . . . Bob Warner and Audrey Scribner
were going strong when we passed them at 33 . . . and Fred Woolcott and
Phyllis Scroogie went right on up with the singer until he passed 50 .. .
it really is a great game . . , almost as good as the sign language craze ...
Now on to Penny Carnival . . . Dorothy Ray and John Halstead wondered
around the multi-colored and elaborate booths . . . Kate Howell and Wager
Glas tried their luck at the Olfactorium, but evidently their "schnozzolas"
weren't up to pas as neither of them carried off one of those tempting
Hershey bars that went to champion sniffers . . . Charlene Vallet and Ted
Williams . . . however . . . had better luck, and were seen proudly bearing
lollipops which avowed their skill at "Spud Jabbing."

Early in the evening Harriet Dean . . . Jane Lord . . . and Carol Schoger
. . . in dainty summer dresses graced the flower booth and sold tiny cor-
sages to the eager crowds. Bob Carney and Dorothy Briscoe tried their
best but couldn't seem to pop those elusive balloons . . . Betty Greve pan-
icked those attending the melodrama by pausing in her reading of the thrill-
ing story to pick up the stray coins that were hurled at the performers by a
most appreciative audience. Dorothy Shappell . . . in charge of finances
. . . was running around with a boxful of money . . . and Charlotte Rueger
. . as President of the League . . . inspected all the booths which must
have been quite a job. Oh yes . . . and then there were the hostesses. As

'T'heatre. The production is the cul-
mination of a year's active work.

la and Mr. James O'Neill.
The story revolves about the life
of Julien Collinet, an artist, who mar-
ries into a family of wholesale gro&-
ers. The family constantly chides him
for his day dreams and deride his de-
sire to write. It is not until he -re-
ceives 10,000 francs for a novel that
they realize the commercial aspects
of his talent.
Plot Continues
This innovation changes their re-
lations entirely. They continually en-
tertain him at teas and dinners until
he revolts. Wholeheartedly he enters
into the grocery business and is such
a success that they are forced to laud
his business ability. Thus he is as-
sured of comparative peace in which
to return to his day dreams.
Roger Ferdinand Is Author

tard Et Cie" is noted for his vivid
I portrayals of the bourgeois France.
He is classed with Moliere in depic-
tion of the middle class French life.

You'll Want to Look Your
Loveliest at the Militar~y all

When your "uniform" takes you to the Military Ball,
you'll want to look quite devastating. Present yourself in
a fleoting, diaphanous chiffon, a swirling net or lace, crisp
cotton, organdy, or mousseline de soi.
Wear black for sophistication; white, to look angelic;
pastels for sweet simplicity; vivid shades for gaiety.
