Knight &7Date
From all we've been able to gather, easily 99 and 44/100% of the entire
strdent body pulled out of Ann Arbor, away from all the coming gloom, for
house parties and picnics of one sort and another . .. even the Tau Betet
flirted with the possibility of a C or two when they took time out for their
party Saturday and Sunday at Lakeland ...
The most appalling thing about the whole affair was watching Hank
Wallace down twelve (12) pancakes at one sitting . . . Ken Graf was dem-
onstrating his super-smooth dancing with Jean Bradley who came down
from Michigan State for the party . . really up there somewhere in the
Astaire class we understand . .. And there was Fred Smith joining in the
Merrily, merrily part of "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" with the most utterly
gloomy expression.. . Vern Shafter exhausted all the previous on-lookers by
swimming across the lake and back ...
Orchard Lake Is Popular. . .
Or'chard Lake Country Club provided entertainment for Michigan men
and women over the holiday week-end with more formal sports
Herb Gardner and Bob Golden took part in the sail races Sunday . .. in
boat 12 ... while Barb Rogers took time off from her golf game to watch
frotn the third tee . .. Dancing at the O.L.C.C. Saturday night were Nancy
Murray and Charles Dean, and Patsy McKinnon was there with Bud Taylor
. . . Harriet Babcock was holding her own in a confetti fight with Reed
Alexander and Dwight Adams ...
In spite of all Ann Arbor's going nature-lover, students--or are they?
-found time for various spring formals . . . Beth O'Roke dashed in from
the W.A.A. house party to go to the Kappa dance with Bill Elliot, and
of course Margaret Cram and Fred Blaess were there together -
Spring Formal a la King ..
The Tri-Delts .went out to the Barton Hills Country Club for their
formal, and made quite an impression . . . on the male delegation by
providing half a chicken for each diner .
There were Dick Mann and Helen Brady, Meggles
Meloche and Dick Shelter, Ann Platt and Bud
i Brooks in the throng ... Arline Krieger and Al
Evans were having a great time at the Theta
Chi dinner dance Friday night . . . the Holly-
wood women . . . Betty Fromm and Dave Klein
were twoing it at the Phi Sigma Sigma formal
iost chummily.. . and we ran into Margie Bid-
lock and Tom Cotton wandering home in the
rain . . . Alpha Xi Delta had its spring formal
Friday night too . . . Libby Unti who was in
charge was there with Tyke Hourigan and others were Phyllis Carey, Ralph
E. Erlewine, Jean Thompson and George Keenan . . . The Gamma Phis
had the last word as far as chapter affairs go before the post-final'house
parties with their breakfast dance Monday morning at the Huron Hills
Country Club . .. Maxine Nelson was there with Jim Harlan, Betty Myer
with Glenn Brink, and Helen Rigterink with Jim Neilson.
Finally, the Union was the scene of many dreamy "last-dates-before-
finals-and-summer" .. . Jimmy Fisher and Jean Robinson had a table in
the corner and "Doc" Harvey and Betty Lou Robinson were enjoying the
music . . . Everyone says it was softer and sweeter than usual, to match
the sentiment that was wafting around generally-...

Plays Stress
Three Studies
Of 'Character
"High Tor. rother Rat," and
"Idiot's Delight," three plays sched-
uled for the summer's dramatic sea-
son are expected to' be favorites
among women attending the Univer-
sity Summer Session, according to
Morle Baer, Grad., publicity manager
of play production.
Julie, typifying the modern Ameri-
can girl, is one of the leading femin-
mne characters of "High' Tor." in
contrast the character of Lise is that
of the old-world, romantic type. The
plot of the play centers in the struggle
of these two women for the love" of a
young Dutchman, Van VanDorn.
In "Brother :Rat" one sees C eire
Ramm, daughter of the comman-
dante of a military school, as an ir-
responsible 'teen-age girl whose con-
stant scrapes enliven the play. The
high point is reached when she is
almost caught by her father in one of
the boy's rooms where she is helping
him with his problems.
Clever dialogue makes an old plot
new and entertaining in "Idiot's De-
light." A fake Russian heiress is
recognized by a Broadway song and
dance man as a woman whom he had
