The Trimrose Path
Considerable flying was done by the "fly-by-nights" this week-end what
with Fletcher Henderson heating up the atmosphere between the Union and
the League and the Wolverines beating up the Gophers. . . . They should
pick on someone their own size ... Anyway the temptation was too much
for a goodly number of erstwhile "stooges" who had planned on taking
up residence in the library for a few days ... Relaxation, they claimed, was
a necessity for "that tired feeling" ... And forthwith thumbed through a
few pages of their psychology book to find the proof . . .
At The Union...

i ..

The general idea Friday night seemed to be to get to the Union early
and not miss any of Fletcher Henderson's swing rhythm. Dotty Baxter
was there in white morie with silver threads running through it . . . She
was accompanied by Chuck Coe . . . The Big Four, football quartet, turned
out in full force.. . Larry Barasa brought Julie King, Jack Brennan, dancing
with Adelaide Ely proved that the dance floor held no terrors for him after
all . . . Elizabeth Turner, recovering from a siege at the hospital, and Bob
Cooper were tripping the light fantastic in the best of spirits, and Jean
Hayden and Johnny Smithers followed their example ... Our football heroes
lead a merry life, although they really hit the books during working
Marcia Connell and Bob Windsor . . . Betty Hass and Chuck Evans . .
Betty Young and Mac Rogers were standing around listening to the choruses
of that placid looking tenor sax man, Chu Berry . . . The rendition of "Chris-
topher Columbus" collected a crowd which made dancing in the center of
the room practically impossible . . . In it were Betty Crandall and Bill Lord.
... Miggs Richter and Sam Perry ... Mary Minor in red chiffon, and Jimmy
Kingsley . . . George Washington, trombonist, got a big laugh with his
crazy antics which included leaping high into the air and landing in the
laps of several of his colleagues ...
The League 'Annex'....
The League, where the Interfraternity Ball was also being held, was
just as crowded as the Union if not more so . . . At the beginning of each
dance, it seemed that there were more couples on the floor than during
the preceding dance . . . and so it continued all evening long ...
Several of the people we noticed during the beginning of the evening
dancing to the smooth strains of Charlie Agnew's band were Carol Collins
and William Widdicombe . . . Jean Seeley and Dick Joslin . . . Charlotte
Rueger and Dick/Hershey . . . Betty Riddell and Walter Wendell . . .were
applauding Charlie's marimba playing.
During the long intermission caused by Fletcher Henderson's delay
in leaving the Union and Charlie Agnew's having already left the League,
we had lots of time to look around and see just who was with whom . .
noticed Betty Shaffer and Dick Oliver . . . Margaret Tichenor and Russ
Heyl . . . Ginny Jackson and Bud Haines . . . and Betty Ann Chamberlain
and Sandy McPherson . . . Betty Ann kept us wondering about the black
veil she was wearing over her face . . . Bill DeLancey seemed very much en-
grossed in conversation with Kay Shields in the Grand Rapids Room . .
Kay had selected a blue crepe formal for the dance with a million tiny
pleats in the skirt.
Wolverines Vs. Gophers.. .
Judging by the crowd that couldn't crash the gates to the rink Saturday
night the Wolverines should attribute part of their success to the support
they had from the audience . . . Joanne Westerman and Frank Feely were
doing their bit for the cause . . . Jean Lee and Jim Mahaffey ...Jeannice
Byrne and Ed Schram looking a trifle chilly, were none the less loyal
rooters . . . Helen Austen and Bob "Boss" Seaman were among those
present . . . Josephine Wilcox, and John Seeley could be dimly discerned
through the smokey air at the Coliseum Friday night.
Strange as it may seem the library was almost popular Saturday night,
hockey game or no hockey game . .. Joanne Kimmell and John Saunders
could be seen behind several weighty volumes . . . Jacqueline Kolle and Ed
Adams ... in their usual haunt in Basement Study Hall . . . were doing
penance for the previous evening spent polishing the League dance floor ..-.
with their feet, of course . . . There were lots of other people too, but they
were so deep in the arts and sciences that they wouldn't raise their heads'
long enough to be recognized ...
A good many forsook the lighter pleasures to applaud the splendid work
of Molinari in directing the Detroit Symphony Orchestra Friday night . .
Jean Finlayson and Ray Brett were heard discussing Mr. Miquelle's 'cello
playing with a professional air in the lobby.. . Prof. and Mrs. John L. Brumm
... Prof. and Mrs. Shirley W. Allen were seen during intermission ... Janet,
Allington, Eric Browi and Paul DeWitt were disposing of extra ticketsd
to those who were in line at the box office . . . Others were planning on
mixing Wagner with Fletcher Henderson and wending their way to the
League after the concert . . . Hope the combination wasn't fatal ...
At The Pi Phi House.. .
Saturday night with the Pi Phi House, looking very gay and like the
first day at the circus ... Balloons all over the place . . . Fun for the little
boys who feel it their duty to dispose of them all with pins . .. Moe Carter's
orchestra hard at work ...
Bamby Boucherle and Dick Goldkamp . . . Marg Rogers and Twig Branch
... Priscilla Smith and Carl Ziler ... Ann Gifford and Gene Cook . . . Beth
Ranney and Dick Coons, from Birmingham . . . and Jane Hardy and Hal
Blackburn went to the Haunted Tavern for dinner before continuing on to1
the dance.-
During the evening, we noticed Jo Cavanagh and Forbes Henderson,
who is now working in Detroit.. . Sally Thomas and Frank Fehsenfeld
Blanche Tobin and Henry Homes ... Edith Zerbe and Bud Doerr ... Harriet
Heath and Stek McCallum . . . Glade Allen and Dwight Adams . . . and
Jane Nussbaum and Bill Griffiths . . Bill had lots of fun bouncing an
electric light bulb around ... Marcelle Morford came out from Detroit for the
dance and also Barbara Bates Smith and her husband, Russell Smith, werei
there. It ws a gay party and everyone declared that it was one of the
best dances of the year ....r
The Union definitely held the spotlight this week-end . . . Dances on
Friday and Saturday night and the introduction of a new buffet supper
idea for Sunday kept things pretty busy over there ... Apparently enjoying
this last entertainment, were Mary Margaret Thomas and Jack Thom lin-
gering over their coffee . . . Frank Steere and Mary Louise McNeil were
there.. . Fred Collins and Jane Hart. . . Ton Kincaid and Louise Howard. .
Hugh Rader and Prof. William McLaughlin were having a bull session in thet
lounge. Murray Campbell, who was in charge of the supper, wandered aboutC
with a hostly air seeing that all his guests were at peace with the world.

This seemed to give an official send-off to the week-end . . . It remains
to be seen if any daring souls will be treading the path next week with thet
grisly cloud of finals looming ominously in the near future.,

Indians make up many nations of
people, it was explained by the lec-
turer. They originally came across
the Bering Straits, and finally mi-
grated to the south and into Mex-
ico. Dr. Foster said there was as
much difference between the Indians
of the North and the Indians of the
South as there is between the Ger-
man and the Chinese.
"Beyond 10,000 years, archeology
is a science of guessing," Dr. Foster
stated. In his discussion of buildings
near Mexico City, he told an inter-
esting legend of the "feathered god."
Designs which were put on bricks
used in building temples to this god
are still popular, he said.
The J.G.P. dance practice period,
to be held at 4:30 p.m. today in the

dancing, Marie Sawyer, chairman,
said. Applicants are asked to bring
