With The 'Ka " p-as..
The Kappa Kappa Gamma's spring formal Saturday night at the Wash-
tenaw Country Club deserves much praise. Soft lights . . . sweet music .. .
combined with the spring weather produced one of those too, too atmo-
spheres. Jo Scott . . . president of the house last year . . . was seen enter-
ing the dance floor with Bill Kline . . . Among the dancers were Mabel
Campbell and T. K.Fisher . . . Stephanie had trouble following their very
complicated steps. Louise and Dewitt Snyder entered at this point ..
they were greeted very merrily by Dude Haskins and Leo Jacobs. Dude wore
a red and white print dress.
Bea Howell and Bob Graper wandered out on the veranda which over-
looked the golf course . . . Alice Slinghuff and Dick Wolfert found this spot
ideal for a cigarette . . . George Wanty and Honey Rietdyke were chatting
with Barb Lutts and Larry Smith . . . When Barbara came on the dance
floor we noticed her very attractive purple organdy dress. When midnight
arrived everyone seemed loath to leave . . . among those Stephanie noticed
piling in the three buses . . . the Kappa's means of conveyance to and from
th party ... were Nancy Dall and Ed Higgins. Nancy had on a black net
dress with white dots . . . Alys Pierce in green chiffon appeared at that
moment with John Winder . . . Another foursome climbing into the bus
were Marjorie Link and Bill Slattery with Nancy Siebert and Ted Fraser
. ,..Stephanie noticed Marjorie's tan was very attractive with her aqua-
marine chiffon dress. Anyhow there was much merriment on the way home
and to the regret of everyone the spring formal was history.
The S.A.E.'s gave their annual spring dinner dance Friday night..
Everyone was just nicely seated when Jim Wiles and ,Jo Wilcox and Jane
Servis and Julie Kane and a whole crowd came in a few minutes late .. .
After much shuffling of chairs and feet as the men stood up to meet the
newcomers the dinner proceeded again . . . Fred McCracken and Chuck
Van Winlde were harmonizing between -courses much -to the amazement of
their dates . . . Helen Van Winkle and Betty Barth .. .
After dinner everyone climbed the traditional three flights of stairs to
the dance floor . . . Don Schwartz and Eddie Bruce were very interested
in watching the piano player as he rendered "Gloomy Sunday" for the

Undergraduates To Meet Under Flags
In contrast to the seniors on the
terrace, the undergraduate women
will meet in the field in camps under
their class flags. Class colors are
yellow for juniors, red for sopho-
mores and green for freshmen.
After completion of the Freshman
Pageant, women will gather at the
edge of the field near Mosher Jor-
dan and march out in order of class
seniority, forming a block "M" on
the field. The seniors will then
march down from the terrace, out-
lining the "M" with their lanterns.
At a signal from the leader the
seniors will hand their lanterns to
the undergraduates and the cere-
monies will conclude with the entire
group singing the first and third
verses of the "Yellow and Blue."
