Revels . . . gay, dashing, weird, fantastic, the peculiar looking costumes con-
fused even the B.M.O.C.'s who couldn't start to recognize some of their pals
in the odd-looking garbs ...
The hit of the Michigras was the Beta Follies . with Bart Myers scaring
two or three of the boys every night with his act .. irregular to say the least

created a furore .. Alys Pierce and Jim Cole sat back aways . . and
Vince Vis was very careful about keeping out of the front row when he went

Lundahl and Dorothy Shipman went up for a coke and a dance ... and
Barbara Heath, Phil Newman, and Roberta Chissus were engrossed in a bridge
game . . . Roy Frazier was down on the main floor with Eleanor Anibal

find that the carmelcorn concession wouldn't fit into
the booth ... and had to tear it all down again ... Harry
Swarthout and Ann Blakely were on the Loop-o-Plane
looking slightly green about the gills . . . Bob Stowe and
Trudie Hyde braved it too ... Flo Midworth and Bud

and Tony Yocum were talking to friends. . . Dave Span-

the Theta Delt booth barking ... Maxine Nelson cleaned
up on the name 'Shirl' there . .. but the barkers seemed
more partial 'to Miss 'X' ...
Rococo Revels at the Armory looked like a miniature Mardi Gras . .
Pinkie Higgins in Mellie MacCready's blue taffeta formal looked positively
devastating ... just too-too ... and Mellie, in a white mess jacket and tux
trousers, was quite the dashing young blade . . . Ronnie Stilson as the
Bucket Brigade came in with Wally Meyers... Dotty Barrett and Al Roth as
a couple of pieces of statuary looked pretty chalky in their white plaster
makeup that kept cracking. . . Dotty was Diana but Al's identity wasn't so
easily recognizable.-

about them . . . they were all dressed up in plaid and all the rest, as Scotch

she checked on finance matters . . . Peg Pulte as Sadie Thompson and her
shady looking sailor-friend,'Bob Fuller, looked like they'd just left some
high-class saloon down in the bowery. . . Peg looked so wicked that no-one
recognized her . . . she walked up to Jack Dalton, who looked very pretty
in some kind of a uniform, and talked to him for several minutes before
he recognized her . . . Marilyn Norris who was with Jack looked so fragile
in blue taffeta with long blue mitts,.that a high wind would have blown her
right out . . -
