{erry- o-Ropnd
Friday night was one of those super super nights. In spite of the heat
the campus was alive with people dashing from one fraternity party to the
next . . . not to mention all those who wandered across the diagonal on
their way to the Architects' Ball garbed in every conceivable type of costume
and it is with the Ball that we shall start.
As we crossed the gang-plank onto the deck of the ship we found Dorothy
Roth and Rip Bowman admiring the decorations which were the best we've
seen in ages. The ceiling was completely covered with hundreds of streamers
. .. and flags of all nations. Around the walls were panels representing
different countries . .. Holland,Switzerland, etc. . . . the main one being a
panel of the New York sky line . . . .with all the ships coming into port . . .
Out from Detroit for the gala occasion were Margaret Newnan and Sue
O'Dell with Kenneth Dow and Harry Russel. Sue and Harry were right in
their element with their contrasting sailor costumes .. . Sue was in white
with blue .. . Harry in navy blue with white. Margie played the shy Sem-
inole maiden for the evening in a native costume from Florida . . . complete
to the beaded mocassin bag in which she carried her compact . . . Kenneth
stunned us all with his striking Indian costume which complimented hers.
Costumes A re Colorful.
Nina Gabrilowitch also from Detroit was with Thad Leland . . . she
wore a lovely rose-brocade wedding dress which Professor Plumner brought
ove from China .. . Thad was swishing a horse-tail whip and having a
great deal of trouble with his moccasins . . . During the intermission we
noticed one of the dancers in a Turkish costume seat himself in typical cross-
legged fashion as naturally as you please . . . we weren't surprised to learn
that it was an honest-to-goodness Turk.
The main feature of the evening was the floorshow .. . which came from
Detroit for the big night. Among the entertainers were some roller skaters.
they asked for yolunteers to be swung around . . . and one of the volun-
teers was Jean Steere who was whirled about at a very swift pace . . . she
wore a navy blue dress with a pink plaited neckpiece.
Stephanie went walking up Washtenaw Avenue Friday evening . .
attracted by the soft lights and sweet music she couldn't resist peeking in
the windows of the Theta house. The Thetas and dates were having dinner
. " . at one table were Steve Mason and Betty Shaffer . . . Mary Gies and
Gary Bunting . . . Jean Bertram and LaVerne Burns. Ann Timmons and
Homer Lathrop were dancing about between courses . .. and Peggy Van
Vleck and John Call wandered out on the floor from their table . Peggy
wore a peach chiffon trimmed with brown. Harriet Shackleton and Graf
Sharpe went out on the porch where they were joined by Mary Alice Krieger
and Freddy George.
Wandering LipState Street*
Then Stephanie wandered on to State Street . . . the scene of a
vicious circle. No one was content to stay at just one party but strolled
about as they pleased.
The Theta Delta house with its nice porches was the scene of much gaiety.
On the front porch enjoying the spring moon were Julie Kane with Bill Weeks
and Marion Edgerton and Brad Carpenter. We noticed Betty Whitney..
new member of Wyvern . . . dancing about with Bruce Telfer . .. Betty
wore a tangerine chiffon. Betty Gatward . . . another Wyvernite . . . was
about with George Peck. Just as we headed for th door Betty Young and
Murray Campbell came along . . . one couldn't help but notice Betty who
was wearing brown chiffon.
On to the Chi Psi house. . . another big Friday night attraction with its
negro band. Dave Macdonald and Mary Ann Starr were very much in evi-
dence . .. Mary Ann had on a white and maroon pique formal with a huge
maroon leather belt. Becky Bursley and Dave Brooks were petting "Rum,"
the pride of the Chi Psi household . .. Priscilla Abbot and Fred Mitchell
joined them in their admiration.
Looking In A t Sigma Chi.. ..
Stephanie really enjoyed herself too much to see many people but she
traveled on to the Sigma Chi dance. Patty Haff was there with Max Schoetz
... Patty looked lovely in red marquisette. Frank Fehsenfeld . . . who1
might be termed "the famous" . . . was present with Billie Andros. Harriet
Heath and Stek McCallum were dancing some very intricate steps about the
floor . .. We also saw Mary Kay Adams and Jimmie Black about the
house, too. Russ Cole of the non-partying Alpha Delts droped into the;
Sigma Chi's with Marcia Connell.
Anyhow it was a fine circle of parties . . . everyone rivaling the other1
for gaiety . . . Stephanie sends orchids in profusion to State street for a
pleasant Friday evening,.
The League was one of the cooler places in town Saturday night and Ste-
phanie certainly appreciated it . . . the breeze blowing in through the open1
windows snuffed out a lot of the candles . . . but it was an effective re-c
frigerating system and no one minded in the least.
Birthday Cakes And Ice Cream .. .
We noticed quite a bit of commotion down at the far end of the ball-1
room and inquisitively we danced down to see what was going on. There
were big birthday cakes and ice cream and presents and everything ...r
Stephanie can vouch for the cake . . . it was good. The guests of honor
were Marion Cranmore wearing a bright flowered print and having a grandr
time cutting cake. . . Evelyn Maloy in pink lace was blowing out the candlest
with the help of aforementioned gay breeze . . . Elaine Reagan watched the,
process and offered her help . . . and John Chandler who couldn't cut the
cake, did a good job of passing it around.

The Trigons had a big table Saturday. . . Kate Landrum was there with
Price Innes and Helen Johnson and Dick Early were together . . . They
were all talking when Bob Murray and Mary Elizabeth Gray came up and
joined them . . . A little later the orchestra was playing one of Stephanie's
old favorites "Stardust" . . . when she caught a glimpse of Mary Lou Wil-
loughby and John Mann dancing together. They joined the party at the
Trigon table with Mary Andrew and Tommy Ayres . . . Maxine Bliss and
Lowell Craig seemed to be wandering around quWVe a bit from table to table
but every now and then they settled down with the rest of the crowd.
Dorothy Love and Bernie Foster danced by just then and we noticed Dorothy
was wearing a lovely dusty pink dress with a very trick jacket.
