Th ePrimrose Path
With her hair let down to facilitate the proverbial "good cry" Miss Prim-
rose adds to the general dolour of the situation on campus and sighs a weepy
farewell column into the ears of those who will listen ... the best thing she
has done for the campus in many moons, she did this week-end when she
wept a Huron-full of tears, and, draped in black, zoomed around the place
With little of her usual verve . .. her black veils blowing, she visited the
usual haunts in search of cheer from those who are as yet not down in the
Friday night the Theta Chis had an eventful spring formal dinner dance,
which warmed the well-known cockles of Miss Primrose's heart by its very
levity ... the old oil can tradition that has even permeated the faculty as
was seen last week-end at the mighty Key Dance, numbers the Theta Chis
among its supporters as a "good thing" . .. They varied the requirements.
a bit however, and presented a shiny oil can to Jack Briner NOT for being
the most loquacious lubricator, but for putting the most noise into his
renditions ... Dick Shroth and Margaret Peckham watched it all eagerly
. .. Eleanor Skiles and Howard Johnson dropped in late just as Miss Prim-
rose was sweeping out in her novel outfit . ..Carl Post and Dorothy Webb
enjoyed the music, and seemed to have forgotten all about the coming ordeal
. .. At dinner Nancy Saibert and Jack Thompson seemed to be able to sit
'up and take nourishment as the old saying goes ... Tom Koeppelman was
with Betty Notley and the two of them were grinning like Cheshire cats
when Miss Primrose, peering through her weeds, caught sight of them .
as were Margaret Lowry and Reed Prugh . .. Through her tears as she left
the dear old Theta Chi house for the last time Miss Primrose glimpsed
Grete Holst and Walker Graham dancing all too gaily .
And All He Said Was 'U.g' .. .
Saturday afternoon brought along with it a really high spot in the
Michigamua Peace Paddle . . . up the Huron it was with all the mighty
tribesmen puffing, and now and then one of the squaws doing the work .
Jean Lillie paddled super-man Tom Kleene upstream (be impressed,
people) ... he was nursing a quart mug marked "For Household Use Only"
and with an expressive "ugh" refused to let Miss Primrose, who was then
doing her duty by raising the Huron's water level. with her tears, peek
into the interior ... One of the "Young Bucks" in the person of Joe Rinaldi
fell into the thundering stream and proceeded to make known to all that
he was a bit lax in the old Indian art of "schvimmen' " . . . whereupon
Hubert (Tangle Tongue) Bristol, as one of the "Fighting Braves," pulled him
out ... Tom (Slumbering Souse) Sullivan churned up the river to the picnic
grounds with Harriet Hathaway . .. Harriet Shackleton and Jack (Rudder
Nose) Kasley, Helen Purdy and Jake Townsend enjoyed the trip down-
stream best .. . At night they all had a dance at the Phi Kappa Sigma
house and braves, bucks and sachems joined in the building of a huge
bonfire in the front of the house to celebrate the great'occasion ...
Unbraiding her hair on the way to the Union Miss Primrose attempted
to lose that squaw look by applying powder to her already noticeable pallor
when she arrived . . . Sally Connery and Dorothy Bernard were waiting
calmly for their dates and gazed in wonder as Miss Primrose wheeled past ...
Upstairs Sally Thomas and Harry Clark were listening appreciatively to
a smooth rendition of "Smroke Dreams" ... In the other room Miss Prim-.
rose heard Sara Clancey shout across the hushed room "How about doing
history tomorrow?" and she dashed away disheartened again . . . Helen
Kipf, whose pet alligators were the topic of conversation at the moment,
was astounding Jerry McCarthy with a few ghastly tales . .. Also with that
faintly worried "must hit the books" look she saw Roberta Leete with Jerry
Martin ... Betty Walker and Rowland Bolton danced nonchalantly along
to the mournful notes of "Stormy Weather" . .. Isabel Bruyere and Henry
Huntington, and Vera Gray and Fritz Radford were among those present
as Miss Primrose noticed, peeping coyly but sadly through her black garb ...
Ring Bells, Blow Horns .. .
On Decoration Day bright and early in the morning the Gamma Phi
Betas and company wended their way out to the Huron Hills Country Club
for their breakfast dance . . . Barbara Spaulding was out for the dance
with Bruce Bassett . . Betty Lindegren ran around with a balloon on her
hair and danced with Joe McCulloch as smoothly as ever with the added
handicap of her headgear .
And so, never let it be said that Miss Primrose doesn't know when to
leave with naught but pleasant memories ...,away, away she must fly before
the bugbear of exams (how she's avoided that horrid word up until now)
gather into their amazingly multiple and equally gruesome folds the here-
tofore carefree students ..
