The roll of drums . . . the clank of swords . . . bombs bursting . . . boots,
boots, boots, boots.. . brass buttons.. . there's something about a soldier...
She had been to the hairdresser's for a scintillating wave the day before
... her ambrosial locks vaguely resembled'the waves of the Red Sea (due to
the henna rinse) . . . as she shook them with abandon while drifting from the
shower . . . Hours passed while she slipped dreamily into each specially
chosen garment . . . adjusted rouge and lipstick in perfect proportion on
her delicate features . . . aha! . . . a touch of personality perfume . . . shei
lure for Her Own . . . At last she donned the long string of orchids which
flowed from her left shoulder to the hem of her evening gown and would
have dragged on the floor if she hadn't wound them twice around her swan
like neck to prevent tripping over them as she made her entrance down the
ivory staircase . . . What's that ???? . . . the bell . . . Heavens ! ! ! she wasn't
nearly ready ... Half an hour later . .. with the carriage of a woodland faun
she picked her way down the stairs with pounding heart.. . and there ...
with his hand on his sword ... his buttons shining with an intense glare . .
his manly form encased in wrinkleproof khaki . . . and the gleam of love in
his adoring eyes . . . stood Her Own . . . the perfect soldier . . . They set
out tor the Military Ball . . .
Red Soldiers Marcching...
Arrived there they were made startlingly aware of immense, red-coated
forms marching up the stairs of the Union and around the walls of the
Ballroom . . . After being revived by the doorman and persuaded that the
figures were only cardboard they decided not to abandon the dance and
even mustered a shaky chortle or two when Alberta Wood and Dwight
Adams passed on their harrassed way . . . trying to find one of the
cardboard soldier boys to take home . . . She waved a fluttering hand at
Ruth Washburn and Spike Nelson as they tramped downstairs . . . and
thought how becoming red dotted swiss was to Virginia Letts, especially
when trimmed with white bows at the neck and sleeve . . . Howard (Med-
iterranean) Crusey thought so too, she decided . . .
As the evening progressed . . . Miss Primrose . . . for it was no other
than she . . . grew much bolder . . . and only fainted once during the air
raid . . . much to the horror of her partner who was hiding behind the
portier at the time . . . With trembling fingers she borrowed a pencil from
Bill Donovan, who was reviving Helen Wolf . . . and, remembering her
duty at all times, inscribed the names of Sally Eschbach and Carl (Jail-
bird) Clements who were apparently reveling in the awful humming of
the dirigible and the bursting of the bombs on the Ballroom floor . .
Elaine Ihnken and Dick Shappell were doing the same . . . Johnny Marley
looked really very fine in his regular army uniform as he escorted Vir-
ginia Osterman to a place of refuge on the sidelines . . . Then Miss
Primrose experienced just another of the many thrills which are a part
of her everyday life in the social whirl . . ..She stood beside Her Own in
the sabre arch and watched guests go by in the Grand March . . . Bob
(Fido) Pommerening . . . Bill (Coca) Cobey and Hidson (Hunky) Dunks
were there too, the last with Betty Loughborough by his side . . . She saw
Mary Johnson and Bob Eberbach go sailing by . . . and envied Hope Hart-
wig, who stood pridefully gazing- at John Cornelius as he led the drill
team through their maneuvers ...
The Phi Gam Social ...
But all was not so rosy for the dear lady . . . Jack (Where's Emer)
Gideon, of football repute was bouncing on the Phi Gam's front porch
and at first glance turned her blood to water . . . Quickly consuming a half
a dozen iron pills she sidled past him into the lighted hallway . . . and
peered about'. . . Jane Jewett and Bob Elliott were lurking about .
Elaine Jacobs and John Hulbert 'Ensian star freshman salesman . . . she
noted down on hercuff . . . Adelaide Ely with the omnipresent Jack
Brennan . . . Jayne Roberts and Jack Henderson . . . Six feet four of
Roy Neff with Martha Cook, Betsy Barbour resident... Bob Cooper and
Jeanne Gomon . . . Miss Primrose then felt the hour of parting was near
so she traveled off to her trundel bed to be fresh for the round of parties
the next night ...
And oh what a night that was . . . First the Phi Psis entertained her
on their terrace where she ate most of the buffet supper they had prepared
for other guests . . . But Dorothy Shipman and Bud Lundahl were making
away with a good portion so she wasn't at all embarrassed . . . Addie Mason
and Bill Whitehead were swinging a mean bat in the yard ...
Across the street, lights blazed from the Sorosis House where the spring
formal was in full fling . . . Marguerite Ritchter was beaming at Chuck
White and Bruce Purdy had made away with what was left of the cookies
after the stag line had made surreptitious visits to the dining room ..
