The Trimrose Path
"Oh what goes on at these Architects' Balls," shrieked Miss Primrose . . .
as she swooningly reached for the smelling salts . .. and promptly fell into
her 52nd dead faint . .. It was too much for the little lady . . . especially as
her hero insisted on going as the Phantom of the Opera . .. Miss Primrose
herself went as the siren of the Tiber and was under the impression she was
to be accompanied by Marc Antony . . . but alas for all romantic dreams
. . the evening was a ghastly failure . . . or a ghostly one for that sweet
girl . . . However, she carried bravely on . . .
After her first glance around the building . . . she made one of her
usual swift and penetrating decisions . . . that it would be easier to describe
what people weren't wearing . . . but before she had proceeded very far on
this line of tactics numerous complications arose . . . so she discarded it
with a blush . .. there were too many slave girls and cannibals cruising about
. Jean Taylor was trying out cannibal technique on Alfred Roth . . . who
was well equipped to look after himseLf in his Boman gladiator garb ...
You could see why Rome fell . . . she decided . . . watching Fred James
stalking by . . . with his Corinthian column swaying in the breeze . . . its
curls and spirals springing up from his own curls ... Just a pillar of strength
to Sally Pierce's cringing serfdom ... Yes indeed . . . a slow process of dis-
integration . . . Just at that moment Bill Griffiths arrived . . . fresh from
pitching at a Phi Psi baseball game ... in a gold satin formal . . . Miss Prim'
iose looked enviously at his exotic form as he tripped by on the arm of Dave
Blue . . -. resplendent in shorts, boots, and a derby . . . Later they returned
with more congenial dates . . . Lois Falkenstein and Addie Mason , . . Addie
added to the classic atmosphere with her shorts . . . dinner jacket . .. and
riding boots
Roman Bath Was Roamn ' . -
Frances Redelen and Wayne Porter modified the Roman bath idea
. with a roamin' shower . . , curtain and all completely equipped .
jusht one dollar . .. supply your own soap . . . Antony and Cleopatra were
much in evidence ... Irene Sartor and Mike (Beautiful Legs) Chadwick ...
Even Rome had its quintuplets . . . Its something to speculate about whether
Mother Wolf could have handled the situation . . . Johnny Sanders had his
doubts on the matter . . . tried to persuade the quints he was Dr. Dafoe ...
His temples were grey before the evening was over . . . Maybe Joanne Kim-
mell had something to do with that . . .
There was a noticeable seepage of the Oriental atmosphere . . . Some- I
how the sultan and his family dropped in . . . how he got wind of the goings
on in Rome is a mystery . . . these sultans certainly get around .
Bill Lyman in pantaloons and velvet jacket dragged his wife along . . . alias
Florence McConkey in veil, etc . . . Mary Jane Field provided competition
in a real Egyptian sultan's wife's habile that she brought home with her
from the Near East . . . Mae West (Katherine Hoffman) who never misses
a good party regardless of the century . . . thought she had really triumphed
Friday night when she picked up a somewhat unholy looking monk, clad
in a laurel wreath . . . It turned out to be Richard Polland . . . just
another architect . . . Jean Steere and Roy Paul refuted the statement
that East is East and West is West etc., etc., etc., by coming in wild western
clothes and making themselves at home . . . Virginia Allmendinger put the
party in stitch'es with her false teeth . . . just a nice, healthy girl from the
farm out for a good time in the big city ....
Lawyers Go From Court To Court ...
Miss Primrose felt that travailled wit of hers faltering after too long
a contact with the motley crew at the Ball . . . so she and the Phantom
flitted over to Mosher Jordan and the twentieth century . . . The Lawyers .i
seemed to have invaded Jordan's "old fashioned garden court" . . . for no
good as might be expected . . . Roberta Leete was one of the flowers . .
Anne Cole blossomed out with Johnny Rae . . . Leaning against the flower-
strewn fence at one point in the evening .'. . the fence had a decided 'ag
after that . . . Ernestine Seske . . . Charlotte Glatt and Milton Radlo . .
Betty Sutton posied with Sam Comfort . . . There were rumors floating
about on the flower scented air . .. Chanel gardenia . . . blue grass . . . that
Flora Lewis was there was daisy-stringing with Jack Thornhill ... Katherine
Sprick with Kenny N~estrom . . . Miss Primrose floated out the door at that
point and wended her way to the Chi Psi house .. .
Rather Informal-These Chi Psis .. .
The Chi Psis were being informal . . . Clem Barnes and Stephanie Parfet
... Maryanna Chockley and Joe Bartlett were wafting from room to room
being informal . . Dottsie Baxter and Waldo Abbott were kicking up'
their heels hither and yon about the premises . . . Ladd McKay was with
Mary Neal . . . Doris Nolton with Fletcher Platt . . . Rumors were bruited
about 'here too . . . about certain signs that never reached the walls for
the guests' enlightenment ... Judy Trosper and Dave Underdown . . . Dor-
othy Shipman and Bud Lundahl . .. Jane Hardy and Bert Reedy . . . yes ,
they were there too and a lot of peculiar looking individuals who dropped
in from the Architects' Ball lent a cosmopolitan atmosphere to the place ..
