"Let's eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow . ." w ell, tomorrow is another
story. Never was a gayer week end had than the one just enjoyed with only
two weeks before the gloomy pall of exams.
The class of '41 went rustic in a big way Friday night and many a little
freshie was hopping hayseed, or social strawberrying. Dottie Cowan and Bob
Marx appeared in overalls to lend local color, and Janet Burns and Chuck
Coe who had just returned from Detroit were doing their share . . Tad
Lynch and Paul Keller were twoing it, and Jim Hammond 'and Mary Lou
Keen, the latter in from Bloomfield for the festivities, were very much pres-
ent. Others who were seen on the new mall were Rex Latham and Peggy
Campbell. The Ten Pretty Girls gve a convitving performance and proved
that the freshman class has something . .. Betty Kepler, Jane Grove, Anita
Carvalho, Maya Gruhzit, Dorothy Gilliam, Betty Brundette, June Roberts.

with Lorraine Haskins, seemed to be enjoying the antics of the comical
cow who missed his cue.
But ever onward! And on and on into the night we did go, what with
umpteen and eleven dances on the calendar. At the Theta Xi formal out
Washtenaw way Bob Shipps and Janet Sibley danced by,
the way dancing should be done to our way of thinking(

all in.on it. Bud Bulde was holding sway with the micro-
phone in one hand, singing "The Old Apple Tree" while

stood by entranced with his efforts . . . And what would
a Beta party be without a parade, this time more gay
than ever because of their latest acquisition, the Interfra- *
ternity Sing loving cup. Y

rounded by a circle of genial alums

fetching printed dresses strolled by on the arm of Herb Clark ... They passed
out of sight just as Dottie Boyer and Bud Whitely . . . shouted greetings.
But we couldn't linger ...
A clcver blue and white color scheme, which even included the orchestra
members in their attire, was used in the decorations at the Alpha Delta Pi
party where "Mac" MacArthur and Bob Elliott . .. the one and only ...
were enjoying the elaborate decorations. Dee Skinner and Don Basler . .
Edna Kandelin and Ray Lahti . .. Rita Wellman and "Pop" Phelps drifted by

pionship home and news about it came to certain gals first hand . . . and
in record breaking time Harvey Clark got back in time for the Theta spring
formal Friday night in time to doff his track suit and track training schedule.
The first thing he did was to yank out the first cigarette in . . . well, for
months anyway . . Doug Hayes also made the deadline for the formal and
escorted Punk Martin to the same dance. Not, to be outdone by his team-
mates, Jim Kingsley, after winning the pole vault event came home Satur-
day and took in a bit of the Psi Upsilon party.
According to all, the :ormal at Martha Cook Friday night was "Nautical
