Mass Meeting For Freshman W omen To Be Held Thursday,,

Jan. 21


The Primrose Path
One would never know that exams were just around the corner
to travel around Ann Arbor over the week-end ... there seem to be just as
many people in the favorite haunts as there ever are ... of course, fraternity
parties are conspicuous for their absence but the League and the Union
more than made up for them . .. it won't be long though before the places,
will be deserted for a while and people will flock to the library for their
week-end dates with the books . . then comes the big splurge, J-Hop, one
week of rollicking, riotous good times and we settle down again for a long
cold winter, (doesn't look like it were going to be cold, though) .
but on with the week-end activities ...
Att The Unin,. ..
Just about the whole town turned up at the Union Friday night. . . it was
a regular after Christmas get-together, with many exhibitions of the latest
in dance steps . . . R.O.T.C. uniforms were greatly in evidence as the Pi Tau
Pi Sigmas gave a dinner party at the Union that night . .. we saw De Rhua
Skinner dancing with Don Baser after the dinner . .. There was a large
crowd at a long table on the edge of the dance floor; among whom were
Roberta Leete and Hubert Martin and Ruth Calkins and John Woodison.
At another table Betsy Crawford and Burton Miller were celebrating . .
The orchestra cooperated with the gay prevailing spirit by presenting
some smooth arrangements of the latest pieces . . . Shirl Crosman directed
them for quite a while during some novelty numbers . . . Walking across the
floor at the end of a dance, we noticed Margaret Ford and Charles Lovett,
Margery Lehner and Fitz Bridges, and Mary Johnson and Bernard Shields
... Charlotte Mitchell and George Combs were there, and Glade Allen and
George Peck . . . Caught a glimpse of Virginia Handeyside as she turned
the corner heading for their table with Keith Shook ... also saw Virginia
Weidlien and George Hansen ...
Those who noticed Jean Little and Lloyd MacKay during the evening
were thoroughly entertained by their fine dancing . . . At the close of the
evening we saw Louise Taylor and Rowland Bolton and Doris Bolton and
Fletcher Platt . .. Sally Thomas was also there with Frank Fehsenfeld, who
is now working in Grand Rapids . . . Some of the others in the crowd were
Mary Margaret Thomas and Jock Thom, and Tom Kincaid and 'Louise
Howard -. -
The Hockey Game .. .
There was a large crowd of Phi Delta Phis and their dates at the hockey
game Saturday night . . . Ty Carlisle and Marcia Connell were there, Robert
Henoch and Virginia Jackson, Bud Smith and Kay Golden, and Larry
Smith and Barbara Lutz . .. also noticed Bill Borgman and J. Burgess Book
... the hockey game was one of the most exciting of the season and Mich-
igan won in the overtime play . . . Betsy Baxter and Tom Mackey were there
and Mary Helen Hurley and Stutz Johnson, also saw Joseph Hinshaw and
Tommy Paterson in the crowd. . . and Robert Knight and Betty Kline . .
the Alpha Delts had their traditional front row well filled. . . saw Dean Glid-
den, Bert Realy, Edward D'Aprix, Richard Griggs, Hal Benham, Frank Ma-
bely and Jack Kleene . . . the elta Gams were represented by Winnifred
Arnold and Mary Lou Willoughby who were in the crowd ... Homer Caldwell
and John Mann . . . these hockey games are gathering spots for the elite of
the town now-a-days, better start attending, them more regularly, if you
can get a seat.
There was quite a crowd at the League Friday night . . . Dotsy Baxter
and Chuck Coe were taking full advantage of the good music . . . their
dancing is really super, too. Jo Cavanagh and Tom Watkins were wending
their way to a table beside the floor . . . noticed also Muriel Hassard and
John Hinkle.°
Saturday night the League was even more crowded but still much fun.
Saw Virginia Letts and Carl Fischer sitting at a table for two as we came
up the hall. Entering the ballroom Steve Mason and Jean Bell danced by-
had to stop a minute and marvel at the caliber of their dancing. At a table
near the floor were Betty Reed .. . Bob Windsor .. . Betty Riddell and Wally
Wendell . . . Betty Riddell had on a blue crepe dress. Might also mention
here the confusion that two Betty's in such close proximity cause.
Wayne White and Mike Chadwick were announcing their talking
strike as we passed their table . . . seems they refused to say a word, but it
only lasted five minutes. Wayne was with Madelyn Appel and Jane Giesecke
Was Mike's date-also saw Doris Effler and Lee Shinar ...
!ordan's Snow Dance . . .
It was like walking into the Swiss Alps to enter Jordan's living room Fri-
day night . . . they had the place all decorated with snow banks and icicles
and we were much amazed when the snow fort from which the orchestra
was playing didn't melt with the hot music that issued from the icy depths
-From the vantage point of the fort we picked out Beth Turnbull, president
of the dorm, with George Wheeler, June Hora with Jack Bigelow, Lucy
Almand looking tiny as ever in a lovely white net formal, and Mabel Allison
and Bob Jaedecke ...
During the intermission we saw Charlotte Glatt who looked very smart in
a black and white striped gown with a large white ruching around the
shoulders . . . Bethany Thomas and Dick Evans seemed to enjoy the refresh-
ments with Marianne Smart and John Rodriguez . . . noticed also B. J.
Hansen and Jack Briner at the dance . . . Everyone looked longingly at the
skis and the toboggan leaning against the wall . . .'if only we could get
some real snow there would be some wonderful sleigh rides and parties
to write up ....
But more of the dance, Jane Christy and Stewart Sheil seemed to enjoy the
icicles for we saw them playing with them during the intermission . . . they
also held fascination for Janet Karlson and Don Alexander ... These Jordan

dances are always fun, but now we must go on to the rest of the week-end ... .
The Chi Omega put on a nice dance at the chapter house Saturday
night, informal and much fun . . . Margaret Guest, president, was with
Dan Cook and Grace Woodley and Joe Coultier were together . . . Katherine
Eichelberger and Les Bartley were there, both Les and Joe Coultier drove out
from Detroit for the dance . . . did you ever think of the number of Bar-
baras in the Chi house. . . Barbara Guest was with Larry Lory, Barbara King
was dancing with Bill Snaer, Barbara Spencer and Bruce McKernis were
together, Barbara Roberts and Dake Gull were there, Barbara Johnson and
Pete Pederson attended and Barbara-pardon me that is the end of the
long list of Barbaras . . . whee, thought we'd never finish ...
Resides The Barbaras...x
Besides the Barbaras there were Georgiana Davis and Eddie Soucaze!
and Jeanette Beck and Jack Stoner.. . also saw Jean McFarland and Don
Marshall . . . the music seemed to fascinate Betty Goutremont and Fred
House, for they danced every dance . . . they stopped to talk for a few min-
utes with Joan Wentz and John Hinkley. . . Some of the others at the dance
were Virginia McCabe and John Adams, Dorothy Hart and Willard Fetzel,
Marjorie Kief and Tony Groper and Hazel Jensen and James Weegand ...
The Phi Sigma Kappas held their pledge formal Friday night . . .it was
a gay party, and some of the honored pledges were Jim McDonald and Jack
Bookout who had Elinor Lobben and Enora Ferriss as their dates . .. Betty1
Hunter and John Freese and Bud Marcero and Janet Groft spent their time
commuting from the Phi Sig house to Jordan's dance . . . John Marley and
Virginia Oosterman and LeVerne Burns and Jean Bertram seemed to enjoy
the dancing and couldn't think of moving around town ... Elinor King came
out from Detroit for the dance With Jack Bertzlaff . . . it was a good party
as the Phi Sigs usually are ...
And now we must bid you adieu . . . Friday night is the Interfraternity

Interf raternity
Ball Has Few
Tickets Unsold
A limited number of tickets to the
Interfraternity Ball are still avail-
able, John Mann, '37, co-chairman
of the dance, said yesterday. Over
550 tickets have already been sold.
The tickets can be obtained by call-
ing the Interfraternity Council office
in the Union from 3 to 5 p.m. today
or tomorrow. Bud Lundahl, '38, co-
chairman of the ticket committee,
also has some additional tickets.
After tomorrow the remaining tickets
will go on general sale. Lundahl an-
George Cosper, '37, president of the
Interfraternity Council, attributes
the large demand for tickets to the
popularity of last year's dance and
the fact that this will be the only
formal dance in January.
Fletcher Henderson and Charlie
Agnew will play for the Ball, I
