The Pri"mrose Path

And Marriage
Are Announced


WVools Smart Women Of '39
Urged To Apply
IFor J.G.P. Jobs

To all those disheartened engineers . who lost the slide rule while
being amused by feminine smiles .. . and to all those horribly conceited~
lawyers who think they are something now that they out tricked the stodgy
engineers ... Miss Primrose wants to tell that she . . . knows where the
slide rule is.
It is in a law professor's home . .. he is a peaceful man . . ,but dislikes
the New Deal and anything even remotely connected with it . .. He wears
classes but not all the time .. . and is fairly tall... several hands taller than
Miss Primrose , slightly bald-headed . he has been using hair restorer
for four years.. the slide rule is in his basement . .. which is filled with
old hair-restorer bottles and yellow newspapers.
If the engineers are unable to outwit the lawyers ... whom Miss Prim-
rose has already outwitted . . , maybe this column will divulge the where-
abouts of that child's toy the first week after the coming Spring Vacation.
Meanwhile, as consolation, the Engineers have predepice in the column"..
Engineers Slide At Union .. .
So for the slide rule ... and we should tell you about the
fcommittee dinner prefatory to the dance . .. but our stooges were barred
admittance. ... and so all we know is that there was a dinner .. . R. C. Reider
squired the Miss Marion Fitzgerald ..Betty "Shaffer was seen trailing
Dick Oliver around . .. and what a hilarious scream Dick was . . .Betty
wore navy blue chiffon.,.
Ralph Lamberson was smiling . . , at the chatter of Nancy Quirk when
we saw him . .. Flash! Eleanor Skiles was seen leading Bob Treadway a
,merry chase across the dance floor . . Ho! Ho! . .. Patty Haff and Max
Schoetz fell on their faces . . .probably nervous because they had just
had their pictures taken .. like the first baseman who took the horsehide
in the face when the newspaper man was taking his picture . . . Helene
Zimmerman with Don Hayes blew in from the Alpha 'Rho Chi house,.
Harriet Beecher of Detroit found the flash bulb and all likely playthings
while her escort. .. committeeman David L~ansdale . .. was discussing things
of great importance with other committee members . .. the patrons' booth
was full all the time . .. and Miss Primrose personally thought that it was
because there were gobs of candy in it . .. Gus Collatz , the president of
the senior engineering class ...was treking around with Jane Giesecke .
while Maurine Palmer was there with Miller Sherwood ... Stubby was there
*.with Willis Hawkins . . . we should explain that Stubby is Gertrude
'Veneklasen who was called that when she was living in Martha Cook last
Lawyers Break Loose.. .
Meanwhile, at the Law Club hilarity reigned . .. imagine . .. Miss Prim-
rose was there in person for a short while ... But not for long, for after
sliding around with the engineers the contrast in atmosphere was oppres-
sive and she felt rather creased even before she could break loose ... But in a
quick whirl around the lounge, etc., she observed the following startling
facts: Barbara. VanderVort, titan haired beauty of the Delinquency News
Letter office sweeping across the floor with Ed Downs . . . Jane Pitcher
ICharlestoning in a corner with Herbert Nadeau dancing attendance..
Janet Abington revealing the temperamental nature of the Drosophila fly
to Eric Brown ... Janet has acquired a sudden attachment for D. since her
introduction to Heredity ...
Clifford Ashton., . , future hope for the U. S. Supreme Court ... expound-
ing his views on the recent declaration of constitutionality of the Court on
"the Minimum Wage Law to Dorothy; Geldart . . .Jean Hanson and Bill
Thorsness enlivening the atmosphere with their bright and cherry coun-
tenances ... Farley Ullrich and co-chairman La Mar Forshee, wearing his
satin badge of responsibility like a man ... Mary Bell and Dave Morris ...
Betty Haas and Tom Moxcey . .. At that point Miss Primrose fell into a
swoon and had to be carried out..
Warning . . . If you don't want to get in the Primrose Path it's best
not to venture out at any time for other purposes than going to classes..
Miss Primrose is acquiring so many stooges -that they are beginning to spy
on each other ... Each one is bound to secrecy so you'll never know when
your name is being added to the black list . . . Avoid all your friends if
you want protection ,.. .Maybe your roommate is one of the Celestial Band
..Look for the Purple P tattooed on the sole of the left foot.
Betsy Barbour' Does Some Tripping .. .
This mighty force made the rounds of all the parties this week-end..
even crashing the Betsy Barbour sanctum sanctorum ., .There the Spirit of
Spring was whooping it up with great eclat in all the decorations . .. Helen
Marsh and Hugh Robertson follower} suit .., only on the dance floor .
Jack 'Them and Mary Margaret Thomas . . . Harriet Thom and Harvey
Clarke were overheard discussing the 'Child Labor Amendment, but it
Ssounded more like a'picnic , Barbara Zapp and James Brooks with brother
George Za-pp and Frances Everard were planning rock gardens for their
summer estates in between dances and . .. Frances prefers Lobelia Crystal
Palace above all other flowers ... Althea Wagg and Homan Hallock rendered
a .ravishing duet on "Oh Wert Thou in the Cauld Blast" with Marian
Price and Art Shepard accompanying them on their respective piccolos..
Dorothy Love was complaining to Hank AOnlin that the delivery man invari-
ably carried her laundry box to the Sorosis House . .. and wondering who

beauty .:.
It Is said by many that the Phi Psi's entertained recently, in fact rumors
