Johnny Hamp's Band To Play For Annual Assembly Ball At


7YCerry o ound
Who said that there would be a lull in the social activities after the
J-Hop? ... . It seems that life is going merrily on and everyone is already
forgetting all the grand resolutions about studying hard for the second
semester. And anyway with spring in the air who wants to spend all their
time on books . . . But now for the activities of the past week-end . . . It
almost seemed that everyone or at least a good many started both Friday
and Saturday evening off by attending the Hockey games . . . and if you
crave excitement that is where you should have been too . . . if you were
Heading the list of parties for Friday night was the Meds' Ball . . .
Caduceus. It was held at the Union with Frankie Masters supplying the
music. As seems to be traditional the decorations played an important part
and they certainly kept you entertained if you go in for things such as
skulls and skeletons. But then even if the theme seemed to hinge on death
the general atmosphere was far from dead.
Dinner parties galore preceded the Ball . . . and among those who
entertained were Alpha Kappa Kappa. . . Nu Sigma Nu . . . Phi Chi . . .
Phi Rho Sigma . . . Phi Beta Pi . . . and Theta Kappa Psi. At the Theta
Kappa Psi house we saw among others Maureen Kavanagh with Joe McCann
. . . Maureen was wearing a white crepe formal . . . Dorothy Briscoe . . .
who was wearing flowered taffeta . . . was with Bob Carney . . . Phyllis
Price and Don Albers. . . Mary Beth Tarbell with Bill Frostic . . . Marian
Stomler and Barney Foster . . . Marian chose a white satin formal with
rhinestone accessories . . . and Helen Cook and Willis Hasty. Skull and
Bones were used as place cards and there were also gardenias at each place.
Before The Ball..
At the Alpha Kappa Kappa house Dr. and Mrs. Max Peet and Dr. and
Mrs. Robert Gesell chaperoned the dinner before the dance . . . and
among the other guests present were Dr. and Mrs. Willis Brown . . . Dr.
Fred Ludwig and Miss Jane Pinson . . . Mr. Bruce Donaldson . . . Mr. Ed
Wright . . . Mr. Floyd Hartman . . . Beryl Harrison . . . Jean Nelson . . .
Dorothy 'Wikel. . . and Betty Bell.
Betty Anne Beebe and John Patterson were at the Nu Sigma Nu house
for dinner preceding the Ball . . . they agreed that the food was excellent
... Betty Sinclair was also there in a lovely white chiffon formal .. .
It was a fitting beginning for one swell evening . . .
Jo Hadley and Rod Howell dined at the Union before the Ball . . . Jo
wore white satin with very tricky rhinestone straps . . . Also at the Union
for dinner were Gertrude Sawyer and Bill Howell . . . Gertude chose a blue
crepe formal for the occasion . . . Pat Potter and Mike Sharp were at the
Phi Chi dinner . . . Pat looked very lovely in a white accordian pleated
dress with gold hammered nail heads around the neck and armholes . -
During fThe Dance ...
At the Union during the dance we noticed many prominent couplesi
on campus . . . Mary Lambie wore black and white with a very stunningf
embroidered design . . . Harriet Heath chose white taffeta with a cluster of
flowers . . . and Ann Edmunds had on a lovely ash blue trimmed with
Dubonnet red velvet flowers-.
Barbara Coventry was there with her brother Mark . . . and Barbarat
looked very stunning in a red and white print formal. . . and as we wan-
idered about loking at the decorations we saw Maryanna Chockley in a light
blue crepe . . . Dorothy Shutt and Bob Trimby . . . and Honey Reitdyk1
and Bob Northway. Edith Zerbe and Bud Doerr were standing talking
to some of the others that had been at the Theta Kap house for dinner be-t
tween dances and nearby Julie Kane was talking with Gordon Lamb ...-t
Julie's formal was of bright blue net.
The Law Club was a gala place Friday night when the Lawyers
put on their third formal of the season . . . Everyone seemed to enjoy the
rapid rhumbas and slow tangos of the Mexican orchestra as they dancedt
around the ballroom . . . We noticed Jean Finlayson and Ray Brett andI
Marty Steen and Stan Smoyer whirling around the floor . . . Dorothy Roth
and Frank Chambers occupied one corner successfully with some very
intricate steps ...
Seen At The Law Club . . .
Red Hally and Virginia Renz couldn't take it, so they sat down near
the orchestra for a few minutes to watch the others ... Virginia looked
lovely in a green crepe formal . . . Mary Jane Downer and Harvey Walkerl
also decided to watch for awhile and occupied a very advantageous place
near the floor . . . Sue Willard and Pat Gallagher, however, kept right on
with the dance and did a very good job of it .. .
During the intermission everyone gathered around the punch table
for their refreshments . . . Lucille Johnston and Sam Travis seemed to be
having fun balancing their cups . . . Lucille wore a satin dress with a hand-
painted floral design that was very stunning . . . Nancy Kover and Bob'
Blackburn thought the cookies were especially good and they shared them
with all their crowd ---
As the music started again we noticed Harriet Shackleton and Graf
Sharp wandering back to the floor . . . Harriet was very patriotic in a red,;
white and blue printed chiffon, just for Washington's birthday . . . Some
of the other couples at the dance were Eileen McManus with Bob Choate . .
Ronie Stilson and Dave Morris . . . Nancy Quirk and Mennen Williams ...
and Marie Abbot and Beebe Kelly . . .

A Grand Time Was H ad...
Everyone had a grand time up at the Phi Sigma Kappa house Friday
night at their formal . . . As soon as you entered the door you felt the
spirit of gayety and good spirits . . . We noticed Peggy Duggan and Bud
Marcero chatting in the hall while waiting for the music to start . . . Peggy
looked very gay in a print formal with a clever fringed skirt . . . Betty
Hunter and John Freese were also there . . . Betty in a very lovely red
dress . . .
The Ricker brothers . . . Art and Al . . . haunted the ping pong room
and had a very strenuous game with their dates Jane Freese and Margaret
Lowry . . . both of whom wore black taffeta . . . Ross Beaumont and Sue
Haviland looked on and enjoyed the game almost as much as the contestants
, . . Harriet Pomeroy . . . in red taffeta . . . and Bill Schultz took on the
winners for another game - - -
And now for the League Friday night . . . we got there kind of late our-
selves . . . Stephanie simply had to see the hockey game . . . But anyways
here is what we saw . . . Jean Seeley looking very lovely in green crepe - - -

was wearing a long velvet . . . Helen McRae in black crepe with a large white
collar . . . Ruth Rich with Sheldon Drennan . . . Shirl Crosman with

Petitioning for all major League
positions will continue until Feb. 29,
according to Winifred Bell, '36, chair-
man of the Judiciary Council. The
petitions may be filed in the Under-
graduate Office of the League.
Specific times have been set aside
for the interviewing of the applicants
for the various positions on the
League Council, including the presi-
dency, the three vice-presidencies, the
secretary-treasurer, and the chair-
manships of the numerous commit-
tees. The schedule for these appoint-
ments is as follows: from 3 to 4 p.m.
Monday, March 2, vice-presidents;
from 3 to 4 p.m. Tuesday, March 3,

tation; 7 to 8:30 p.m., presidency;

all those who are not free at the spe-
cified times, special hours have been
named. These are from 4 to 5 p.m.,
Friday, March 6, and also all of the

Women Eligible for Vice-Presidency
Women of the architecture school
as well as from the School of Music,
the School of Education, and the
College of Literature, Science and
are Arts are eligible to petition for
the position of vice-president of the
League from their school, in which
capacity they will sit on the League
Although junior women who are
eligible are preferred, there are two
sophomore positions on the Judiciary
Council. The duties involved in this
type of work include the handling
of disciplinary cases which are re-
ferred by the dormitories, league
houses, and the Dean of Women's
offices. The Council has the priv-
ilege of recommending to the League
Council any changes in rules regard-
ing disciplinary matters, and it has
charge of the petitioning for activities
centralized in the League. The mem-
bers interview all applicants for ma-
jor positions and make recommenda-
tions along this line to the League
Judiciary Council
The Judiciary Council is the best
indication of the continuity brought
about by the merit system inasmuch
as the junior members remain in of-
fice for two years upon election. The
requirements for this type of worlk
are not specific activities but general
qualities, according to Miss Bell.
All campus women may petitior
for any League committee and wil
be automatically accepted by at least
one department. In this manner the3

gain experience as well as merit
points, both of which will be val-
uable later for advancement.
Petitions may be filed for the fol-
lowing positions: president of the
League; three vice-presidents, one
to be chosen from the College of
I Literature, Science and the Arts, one
from the School of Music, and one
from the School of Education; secre-
tary-treasurer; chairman of the the-
atre - arts, orientation, publicity,
house-reception, social, and merit
system committees; and sophomore
and junior positions on the Judiciary
Margaret Hiscock, '36, chairman
of the League orientation commit-
tee, explained the duties of the six
committees which are the nucleus
around which actual League work
revolves and the medium through
which contact with all campus women
is maintained. The applications are
judged on administrative ability in
specific committee work in addition
to ablity to act cooperatively on
council legislative functions.
Theatre-Arts Committee
The theatre-arts committee in-
cludes in its work the management
of the Children's Theatre, the spon-
soring of Little Symphony concerts,
and art exhibits. The merit system
committee submits a monthly activ-
ity chart to every sorority, dormitory,
and League house. These reports
are recorded on the hall chart in the
League. An individual card file is
maintained in the Undergraduate
Office for each woman on campus.
The work of the house-receptioncom-
mittee is concerned with the actual
management of the League building.
This group is in charge of Open
House, the spring bridge tournament,
library teas, and campus tours.
The publicity committee keeps a
tcrdpbook and file in which -all'
League matters are entered to give
a complete summary of activities. It
also issues all stories to newspapers
and creates posters for publication.
The social committee plans the
monthly undergraduate teas, assists
with the Ruthven teas, and arranges
exchange dinners.
The orientation committee con-
structs a program adequate to give

freshmen all phases of college life
in order to live fuller and richer
lives, according to Miss Hiscock.
Jean Seeley, '36, president of the
League, explained the duties connect-
ed with her department. The execu-
tive board has two functions: to sit
on the Board of Governors, concerned
with League affairs and to discuss
matters in the group in order to pre-
sent the council business in a concise
manner. The president is responsible
in a general way for keeping the or-
ganization running smoothly and for
realizing its responsibility in rela-
tion to other campus organizations.
The vice-presidents have complete
control ofrthe candy booth, the sen-
ior Supper given the opening night
of J.G.P. and the Senior breakfast.
The secretary-treasurer makes out
the budget for the following year
with the aid of the Council, sends out
notices for all important meetings
and sends out copies of the minutes
to the dean's office.

bers by the orchestra.
