THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Militarists, pacifists, foresters, and just plain folks beat it out in
desperate competition over the weekend . . . Friday night was highlighted
by Military Ball, Peace Ball, and the Log Drive . . . and Saturday night
there were so many parties that even blind dates were a scarcitr . .

agreed that they practically went "out of this world" to the tune of

Kostem who was near the head of the march with Muzafer Huranognu . .
With almost a sure 'nuff forest for decorations the foresters' party at the
W.AB. was one that will be remembered by everyone who had a sense of
humor . . if only because of the song dedications . . . Ruth Myers and
Johnny Salyer walked through the spruce and pine covered entrance early

in order to arrive before the crowd . . . big Dick Gearhart and tiny Kay
Schultz left the floor to sit for a while where it was a little
