Christi.asProgram
The date of the University Modern
Dance club's Christmas program has
been definitely set for 4:30 p.m. Fri-
day, in the lounge of the Women's
Athletic Building, according to Beat-
rice Lovejoy, '37, dance manager. '
The recital, under the leadership
of Ruth Bloomer, advisor, will include
the following performers: Sarah7

"The King's horses, the King's men
They marched through the League
And they marched back again"
and the occasion was the annual Sophomore Cabaret and League Fair ...
The fortune teller was there; and the horses, Twenty Grand, Pansy Petunia
Sophie and Daisy; and the penny pitchers and the bean blowers, and th
turtle racers. . .Oh, it was a wonderful fair .. . There were crowds of people
there and it would be much easier to tell who didn't attend . . . But here
are some scattered notes from the biggest affair of the fall season .. .
Posting On 'Boz'. ..
Everyone seemed to have fun with the big horse in the concourse . .
we heard him called everything from "Bozo" to "Hoeybunch" . . Som
expert equestrian enthusiasts mounted him Friday night and gave instruc-
tions to amused audiences in the proper methods of posting . . . and ther
much to our surprise we saw our "Bozo," or is it "Honeybunch" indulging i
a -cigarette . . .or so it looked, because someone had inserted a lighted smok
into his mouth . .. Saw Alys Pierce there strolling down the corridor witi
Nancy Dall. . . the Lawyers turned out for the fun, Herb Nadeau, Ed Don-
ovan, John Moran and Tommy Thompson ...
The fortune teller was popular with everyone . . . Martha Hankey an
Virginia Eaglesfield stood guard outside the tent dressed in Russian cos-
tumes ... It would be unfair to mention who entered the mysterious ten
and heard their past, present and future in short concise statements, bu
you can rest assured there were a great many . . . Mortarboard sponsorec
a bean blowing booth ... the object being to get the little spheres in the
darky's open mouth... it was much more difficult than it sounds as Chuci
Kennedy, Brad Carpenter and Stek McCallum found out. . .Frank Danne-
miller and Betty Gatward tried it too, but they weren't very successful whil
we watched them .. . However they didn't give up ...
Penny Pitching .. .
Wyvern sponsored a penny pitching booth at the head of the stairs ...
"Are you a penny pincher or a penny pitcher?" . .. the penny pitchers re-
ceived little bags of candy for successfully landing a penny inathe floating
dish . .. Saw Bill Mulder and Jim Warren leaning over the railing trying
their luck ... and Joane Westerman and Don Bronson were getting change
... It was a test of skill, but the men got pretty good at it after a while and
won consistently ... Over in the corner where the turtle races were being
held you could always find a big crowd.. .we chose Flash as our bet, but he
belied his name and stayed right in the center circle, not even sticking his
head out of the shell . . . Jane Willoughby, was more successful, however,
and proudly walked off with a little red wheel-barrow ... Barbara Alling-
ton and Fred Colombo cheered on their choices as tte turtles meandered
around the chalk lines . .. The Fair was fun and we could go on all day
about it, but it wasn't the only entertainment in town so now we go on
with the story .
Entering the cellar doors and picking our way down the steps, we found
ourselves in the basement of the Phi Sigma Kappa house . . . where the
first part of the "Bowery Ball" was given Friday. In the middle of the
floor was a statue of the Scarlet Venus' and around the walls were murals
befitting the time when "Bowery Balls" were so popular . . Jane Elspass,
Fritz Geib, Randall Reynolds and Jeanne Grant were having a good laugh
at the expense of the murals... Mary Huntington was with Art Ricker who
was master of ceremonies and dressed accordingly. Later on, Art announced
the floor show which was put on by the pledges . . . Ellen Krieghoff and
John Britton found the old organ in the basement a specimen worthy
of inspection.
At The Bowery Ball..
Betty Hunter and John Freese entered into the party with great gusto.
Betty had on a loud red riding outfit and John wa- dressed as a street
cleaner . . . Jane Mougey attended with Jim Hollinshead, Jane wearing a
typical bowery maid's costume and Jim dressed as a farmer in town for a
big time . . Upstairs, where dancing took place, we noticed Florence
Lightfoot and Jim MacDonald... .Mary Wicks and Oscar Findling . . . and
Shirley Hepler and Fred Seyfried. Harold Adler received quite a bit of at
tention, from his fraternity brothers as he was dressed as a girl.
Over at the Martha Cook dance Saturday there was a large crowd and
everyone seemed to be having a very good time .. . and conversation centered
on the Christmas holidays, which was brought to mind by the decorations
. . . reindeers and Christmas trees ail around the walls, with alternating
red and green lights in between . . . In the Red Room, we noticed Ginnie
Wyatt with Bob Swart. Passing through the Sparking Room ... the popular
name for the President's Room ....we noticed Ginnie York and Noble Peck-
ham enjoying the comfort of the bay window-seat during intermission. In
the Blue Room, Jane Carson and Irving Folger . . . Marjory Williams and
Bud Crawford... Mildred Olson and John Veneklasen . . . and Margaret
McKinnon and Bob Hayes were dancing near the orchestra. Margaret had
on a very attractive black velvet dress which had a black net jacket with
gold sequins scattered all over it . . we tage our hats off to Martha Cook
for a graid dance.
Now the cold wintry weather is upon us and soon we can write about
ski parties and sleigh rides . . . And don't forget, as if you could, only ten
more days 'till vacation
