Strange Histories, Unusual
Habits Of Pets Revealed
In Investigation
Because they have no great danes
or police dogs for mascots and be-
cause they love animals, the women
on campus have acquired a strange
collection of pets, as has been found
out by a recent survey.
A baby pig brightened the Kappa
Alpha Theta house for a while. That
is, until it died as a result of a bath
at the Pretzel Bell. Georgie, as the
pig was called after its donor, was
given to Mary Garretson as a birth-
day gift.
Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority was
the scene of much merriment and
excitement while Bunny Mitchell's
monkey was around. They called the
little fellow "Evolu," short for evolu-
tion. He was quite talented, being
able to turn on the radio, eat with
his front paws (or whatever they
call a monkey's hands), and sit up
and beg.
Sampson and Delilah, the famous
turtles of Helen Newberry dormitory,
have thoroughly recovered from their
Altes Lager bath, according to their
proud owners, Betsy Anderson and
Betty Lauer. Another pet causing
much comment in the dormitory is
the canary belonging to Eleanor
Skiles. It refuses to sleep unless
covered with a raincoat.'
Jean Field, an Alpha Xi Delta, has
a most unpopular turtle. At first she
had both a turtle and a lizard. Then,
one day, the lizard disappeared, and
after looking high and low, under
chairs and behind curtains, Jean
came to the conclusion that the
turtle must have devoured its com-
Speaking of turtles, there are two

gaily decorated ones at the Gamma
Phi Beta house named Virginia
Weidlein and Shirl Crossman, after
their owners. They are kept in a
hard candy can. The two animals
are mere shadows of their former
selves, having lost most of the ar-
tistic pictures painted on their backs.
Dorothy Briscoe, over at Helen
Newberry, found that guppies multi-
ply. But she also found that they
die out easily. First there was one
little guppy, then there were ten.
Now there is one again. The first
met its doom by slipping down the
drain while taking its daily bath;
the second, by drowning; and then
about six perished during an auto-
mobile ride. The last little fellow
was the victim of its own mother,
who ate it, leaving her all alone.
Men's shirts have been adapted for
women's wear and are featured in the
latest spring displays. Checked and
plain models are perfectly tailored,
buttoned down the front and even
have button-down collars in the best
masculine tradition.
