The 'Primrose Path
Well . back on the beaten path again after a long silence . .. Don't
think it hasn't been beaten during the interim though . .. the dust kicked
up by J-Hoppers, basketball fiends, Caduceus-ites and other terpsichorean
worshippers in general has been terrific . . especially was it thick at that all-
star hockey game between the Betas and the Theta Delts . . . When it
settled and the results of the massacre were visible the Betas found they
had skated off with the victory in the first few moments of play ... 2 to 0.

in evening dress.. . The Law Club has been tried and found guilty of en-

The Alpha Chi Omegas turned their house into a nursery Saturday night
at the dance given by the pledges . . The guests were entertained with
toys which they drew from a grab bag . . . Laura Spencer, who had Jack
Kerr as her guest, drew a doll in Tyrolean costume to take to J.G.P.
rehearsal with her for inspiration . . . Dick Wangelin, guest of Betty Kay
Jones, formed a touching affection for a white rabbit which hopped around
the dance floor after him on the end of a rubber tube ... Florence Midworth
and Bud Wyman recalled the days of their youth with a sparkling number
on a skipping rope. . . Jumping rope became the mode of the moment ...
dainty damsels and stalwart youths threw themselves into the sport with
great gusto . .. They say the floor has a distinct sag now to remind future
members of joyous times had by their predecessors ...

corner of the Tyrolian highlands,
that Fritz Budel sang his touching
serenade to the lovely lady who lived
on the other side of the wall. "She
is schy; she is schweet; she is shape-

From the opening chorus to the
splendid finale "Feather in His Cap,"
the 1937 Junior Girls Play is filled
with rollicking songs and lively
dances. The gay Tyrolian costumes
splash the stage with color as the.
Sargent cynically comments on the
dullness. of life in general and life
in Schlitz-am-rye in particular, and
the effervescent poet counteracts the
cynicism with an ode compased of
50 cantos for every occasion.
The play which depicts the gay
and frolicsome life in the Tyrol has
an under theme of satire on the life
of America. The village policemen
extol the crime of our country and
turn positively green with envy be-
cause they have no law-breaking
citizens to arrest. The traditional
European idea that America is the
land of dreams where fortunes are
made overnight and everyone lives a
gay and carefree life is dominant

During the twenties the annual
Junior Girls Play gained in size and
scope. Thousands of dollars were
spent on costumes and scenery and
the play ran a five night engagement
at the Whitney Theatre. Junior wom-
en spent the whole year working on
the production. Rehearsals and work
on the properties continued from
September through March, when the
play was presented. At the end of
the decade came the well-known old
bug-a-boo, Depression. He put a
damper on the extravaganzas and the

tone, though losing none of its fresh-
