The Trimrose Tath
Another top-notch week-end . .. My friends, we are getting famous for
them ... mid-semesters are just around the corner, but one would never
know it by the score of parties scheduled every week ... every football game
is used as the best excuse in the world for a dance . .. but the orchid of the
week goes to the Dorm Dance ... it was a grand success . . . hundreds of
loyal students turned out and it looks like the dormitories for men on the
campus are well on their way ...
We saw just about everyone we ever knew flocking into the Intramural
Building Friday for the dance ... looked like the traditional J-Hop throngs
sans top hat, white tie and tails .. . Edith Frederick was there with
George Holmes End we ran into Jean Bertram and LaVerne Burns with
Mary McClure and John Mulkey in the hall ... Jane O'Ferrall and Wem-
mer Gooding were heading for the dance floor when we caught a fleeting
glimpse of them ...
Through The'Y1.ik' . .
Everyone gathered around the "mike" to listen to Bonth Williams, our
star reporter, dishing out the high lights of the evening . .. you did a good
job Bonth, old boy, the people seemed to enjoy it immensely . . . Miggs
Richter and John McLean stood close to the bandstand to listen ... Bar-
bara Allingtorand Bob Cole were right up there too .. . Spotted Mary Lou
Willoughby and John Mann and Kay Burgess and Jack Signaigo in the
crowd.. . Kay looked smooth in a dubonnet dress trimmed in gold ...
Harriet Shackleton and Fred Colombo were at the dance and we also
saw them down at the Alpha.Delt party later in the evening . . . Bruce
Telfer and Betty Whitney were dancing when we noticed them . . . Others in
the crowd were Eliza Enswiler and Norbert Winn .. . Florence Midworth
and Bud Wyman and Virginia Barrows and Ronald Butler . . . It was one
of the best parties of the year ... everyone turned out and the informality
of the affair made it especially good fun ...
The orchestras outdid themselves in rivalry and one couldn't judge which
was the best . . . but why try? . .. Betty Gatward andFrank Dannemiller
danced by as we entered . . . the crowd was terrific, but we spotted Nancy
Saibert and Bob Hendricks and Jean Evans and Dick Sinn . , . Jean and Dick
were talking to Olive Reed and Jack Sinn during the pause between dances
... Marnie Holden and Willis Tomlinson came down a little late after cover-
ing several of the places in town .. . . I guess they liked the Dorm
Dance best for they stayed for the rest of the evening . . . Gil Tilles, chair-
man of the committee in charge of men's dormitories attended with Ruth
Sevensma . . . Gil seems to think it would be well to make this a yearly
affair . .. I heartily agree for the dance was really excellent.
More Dorm Dance...
And now for more of the crowd . . . Al D6wey and Marion Fitzgerald
were there . . . and Betty Hunter and John Freese . . . noticed also Hubie
Bristol and Mary Skinner . . . Herb Wolf and Mildred Epstein were listen-
ing to the chatting reporter over the mike when we saw them . .. Others in.
the crowd were Harriet Hathaway and Tommy Sullivan . . . Janet Ladd
with Frank Howard and Libby Turner and Winfield Bush. . . It was a grand
party for the tenth time ...
And now that we have given you some hasty notes on the Dorm Dance,
let's go back a few hpurs to the Lawyers' tea dance . .. Helen Newberry
Residence was invited and they turned dut en masse .. . Also noticed what
the Lawyers termed a few "Illegalities" . . . that is they weren't inhabitants
of Newberry. .. However they were getting a big rush . . . One of the afore-
mentioned was Jo Cavanagh . . . another was Margaret Curry who looked
stunning in a blue velvet dress trimmed in gray caracul . . . She was dancing
with Bud Prince ... John Starr, the Attorney General's son, we understand,
was dancing with DeRhua Skinner ... Sitty Kean and John Moran wandered
upstairs and we met them having tea in the Lounge . . . Others in the
Lounge were Tony Yocum, Harold Klute, Ben Jayne, and Jane Mougey and
Frank Kennedy . . . The Lawyers' teas are also getting famous ...
And now for a few sketches from the many fraternity parties this week-
end . . . The Alpha Delts had a pledge formal Friday . . . noticed Betty
Shaffer and Dick Oliver and Mary MacIvor and Van Viot talking in the
hall ... Adelaide Mason was there with James Watson . . . Barbara Day
and Tom Tussing were looking. frantically for Dodie Ann Day and Russ Cole
when we saw them. . . The party was a good one, as the Alpha Delt parties
usually are . . . some of the other guests were San Ladd and Jean Lillie,
Homer Lathrop and Louise Walker, Dick Joslin and Betty Anne Chamberlin
and Ruth Coler and Hal Benham ...
Guests up at the Sigma Chi house included Alys Pierce and Jack Gustaf-
son, Eleanor Cram and Kenneth Meyers and Joan Wentz and John Hinckley
. . . The Sigma Chi house always impresses one with its tall white pillars
. . . It looks very formal but the crowd inside belies the formality for the
parties are really fun . . . Others at the house were Betty Crist with Paul
Corsey, and Jean Keinath with George Cosper and Mary Lou Hulbert who
came out from Detroit to attend the dance with Hugh Rader.
At The Psi U House...
The Psi U's had a party Saturday night . . . Dotty Baxter and Chuck
Coe were there ....and Bill Onderdonk and Ernestine Richter came out for
the week-end . .. Bill and Ernie will be married a week from Friday . .
Gathered around the huge fireplace we noticed Don Barnes and Becky
Bursley and Peggie Barnes and Mary Randolph.. . Others in the crowd were
Bob Miller, Sam Perry, Elise Reeder and Sandy McPherson.
Sorosis had their pledge formal Saturday night . . . Mary Lou Miller in-
vited Bethel Kelley and Jacqueline Kolle was there with Ed Adams . .

Saw Gretchen Kanter dancing with Bob Langford and Julie King was
with Larry Barasa . . . Jo Wilcox, president of the house was with John
Seeley and we noticed them talking in the hall with Louise Nack and Lloyd
Strickland ...
Quite a surprise we received Saturday night, when we thought we were
entering the Delt house only to discover that it wasn't the Delt house atl
all but the Jungle Club . . . the occasion being the Delta Tau Delta pledge
formal. The house was cleverly decorated with the walls representing a
huge jungle and overhanging branches extended across the room on a low-
ered ceiling of cheese cloth. Jim .Hollinshead, who had erected the decora-
tions, looked proud of his work as Jane Mougey told him how realistic it was.
In the living room, near the orchestra, we noticed Kay MacIvor and Fred
Kintzer. . . Harriet Thom and John Campbell . . . Betty Sinclair and Bud
Smith . . . Nannette Pierce and Bill Donnely . . . who came out from De-
troit for the dance . . . and Mary Alice Krieger and Louis Belden . . . Mary
Alice had on an extremely good-looking gold lame formal. During the in-
termission, Florence Brotherton and Earl Wetzel were having a good time
playing cards in the library . . . Noticed Ruth Washburn and Gus Danne-
miller, too .
And so, Delts, we take off our hats to you for a very fine party . . . and
also to Jim Hollinshead for the very clever decorations ...
It was a good week-end as usual, and all there lis left to say is four
more days until Friday . . . hit the books and then we will help you enjoy
the week-end . . . there'll be a lot of parties.

Professor Strauss has chosen "The

high percentage of cases of foun-

'The trouble starts when the pen
is left lying flat on the desk or in
the handbag. A change of tem-
perature will cause (1) the ink to
be forced to the point and out into
the cap by the expansion of the
air space in the ink reservoir, or
(2) a condensation of moisture
around the point will mix with
dried ink in the cap or moist ink

There are only two remedies for
