Committee Chairmen For Freshman Fiesta Are Anno


Jenny Petersen
To HeadGroup
Of 8 Chairmen
Feature Of Lantern Night
To Be Annual Freshman
Affair; No Date Set

Unusual Response Shown
By Freshmen Class; Get
100 Petitions
Jenny Petersen was chosen general
chairman of this year's Freshman
Fiesta at a special meeting of the
League Council last night, according
to Charlotte Fueger, '37, League pres
ident. Miss Petersen is afliliated with
Pi Beta Phi sorority and is at present
a tryout on The Daily staff. In the
capacity of assistant chairman will
be Stephanie Parfet, a member of
Alpha Phi.
Other freshman women heading
the various committees were also an-
nounced. Frances Sutherland, who
is affiliated with Collegiate Sorosis,
was appointed chairman of the fi-
nance committee. Harriet Pomeroy is
to head the publicity group. Miss
Pomeroy is a member of Kappa Alpha
Theta sorority and is working as a
tryout for The Daily.
Other Chairmen
Directing the costume committee
will be Magna Mountford, a resident
of Betsy Barbour. Roberta Chissus,
affiliated with Gamma Phi Beta sor-
ority, is to have charge of decorations
and Mary Anne Loughborough will
head the poster committee. Miss
Loughborough is a member of Kappa
Delta. Jean Holland, a Mosher Hall
resident, was chosen music chairman
and Mary Rall, affiliated with Delta
Gamma, is to have charge of enter-
Sally Pierce, Grad., is to direct the
affair. Miss Pierce was in Play Pro-
duction for three years and is now
taking graduate work in dramatics.
She participated in both Soph Cab-
aret and Junior Girls' Play, and is a
member of Delta Gamma sorority.
Both the League and Judiciary
Councils are more than satisfied with
the freshman committee, the unusual
number of petitioners and the large
attendance at the mass meeting held
last Wednesday to discuss the fiesta,
according to Miss Rueger and Mary-
anna Chockley, '37, head of the Judi-
ciary Council.
Freshman Meeting
About 300 first-year women turned
out for the mass meeting. At that
time an informal vote was taken and
it was decided by a unanimous de-
cision that the Freshman Fiesta
should be substituted this year for
the usual Project, and that it should
be combined with Lantern Night.
Approximately 100 petitions for
chairmanships for the affair were re-
ceived. To be scholastically eligible,
each woman was required to have
no grade below a C and at least one
grade above it. All applicants were
interviewed by the Judiciary Council
who recommended one person for
each position to the League Council.
All recommendations were accepted
by that body.
The new chairmen are to start work
at once and committee appointments
are to be announced shortly. The
fiesta is to be given at nightfall
immediately before Lantern Night, on
Palmer Field. The exact date is un-
decided as yet. This affair is the
first event which freshman women
are allowed to give on campus and the
response, according to Miss Chockley,
was most gratifying.
Last Year's Project

It was emphasized that the fiesta
this year is to be very different from
the annual Freshfnan Projects of the
past. Last year the first-year women
gave a Mardi Gras dance in the Grill
of the League, In an all-campus vote,
Kay Carpenter, '35, was chosen queen
and was crowned with ceremony at
the affair: She was attended by Miss
Pierce, Marie Murphy, '35, Georgina
Karlson, '35, and Hilda, Kirby, '35,
who were her contestants for the
