Knight &9 'Dat e
We had the spirit . .. we had the pep . . the cheering section and the
weather in our favor. but--- . .. somehow Fate was ag'in us and we didn't
get the game . . . but, though the hopes may be daunted, we won't give up
the battle. .. and anyway homecoming was a big affair... old alums, young
alums, Minhesot-anites and those who just came back for old times'
-,ake . . . invaded the town for a gala week-end . . . and the fraternity
and sorority decorations certainly signified a gay and hearty "welcome
back" atmosphere . . The little brown jug adorned every doorway, andt
we can't say we didn't encourage its return for a whole year.
Fraternities started the year off right . . . with numerous parties,1
some formal-some informal . . . but all much, much fun . . . and wex
know there are many happy times ahead . . . if they are all as good as1
the taste we had this week-end . . . Of course we know sororities werec
probably celebrating more than anyone else . . . and for a most obvious
reason-pledging . . . that one time when you are so excited and thrilled
you can scarcely cat or sleep ... . "Oh, our class is the prize, no doubt7
about it" . . echoes from every house on tampus . .. and it's in all serious--j
ness (they all know they're right)-so pledge . . . see what an honoredr
position you're holding now (at least, 'til pledge duties begin) ...I
Yawn-Stifling Begins .. .
But we'll all admit that it was a rather long and tedious affair . . . andc
we've had to stifle yawns many a night 'til we were safe in our own littlet
rooms . .. but it's all over now and we can just rejoice.
'Twas a welcome Friday this week . . . for everyone was full of pep2
(certainly couldn't help it if you were one of those 5,000 that attended the
pep meeting) . . . and ready to forget books and worries
for a while . . . and the League was very good evidencet
of just that thing... Jane Nussbaum and Bill GriffithsI
\7\f had the true spirit of the thing. . . and were having a
grand time dancing . . . Ann Brown and Ted Graces
were right in the swing . . . Margaret Whittemore and
Bill Lyman also made the most of Charlie's music.
We saw Edna Kearney and Jack Merriweather
(, whipping up their tempo on one of the fast numbers
.. Jane Jewitt and Frank Mabley were enjoying the
music very much . . . also saw Patty Heaslip with Bill
t Miller and Stephanie Parfet with Chuck Hobman just
as we left.
Dancing in the Union Friday was as crowded as
ever . . . but we did see some familiar faces about, hereI
and there.. . Janet Carver was with John Seeley .
Betty Riddell and Wally Wendell were having a very fine time . . . alsox
,saw PhylElder and Bill Krieger talking with friends during intermission ...
Pi Lambda Phi's Make Merry...
At the Pi Lambda Phi house Friday night we dashed into the party for a1
minute and saw . . . John Mitchell and Ruth Rubiner tripping the light
fantastic . . . and Marcia Sharfman and Irving Matthews were helping
Bob Koritchek enjoy a vacation from med. school .
Saturday was "the night" in many of the fraternity houses . . . for
they were giving their first big dances of the year ... . some closed and
others with a Greek alphabet mixture . . . but all very lively
and full of the old genial spirit we love so well . . . the
Chi Psi lodge was filled to the brim . . people coming and
going (but always coming back) . . . as we crossed the
threshold Nancy Saibert and John Becker danced past--
Betty Ward and Ladd McKay were in full possession of one
corner doing some new step . . . Grete Holst and Johnny
McLean were obviously having a good time . . . later Dottyr
Barrett and Jack Cochrane came in with Mary Lavan and
Jack Cawley . . . Doris Bolton and Fletcher Platt were wel-
coming all their friends . . . and we saw Bob Hook having
quite some difficulty keeping track of Margaret Braden
(and holding someone else's cigarette)V
If you were lucky enough to get through the Phi Psi'sc
spider web . . . once inside, you found a grand party inF
progress . . . and lots of people and very good music . . . we saw Ninab
McClelland and Harry Calcutt in the hall ... Betsy Brown and Bud Haines
were celebrating homecoming . . . and we saw Barbara Heath with Philc
Newman . . . Later in the, evening Charlotte Poock, Don Barnes, Bettyd
Crandall and Bill Lord came in.
Big Apple At A.T.O.'s ..,..s
The A.T.O.'s with their trophy (for best fraternity decorations) had ab
party after the game too . . ..The Big Apple was in full swing as we walkedS
in . ,.. saw Midge Ayers and Tom Clarke. . . Marian Gommiesen and JohnnyF
Clark were being "razzed" by some of the brothers . . . Kitty Means and 1
Pete Gossard were doing a bit of trucking too . . . and we saw Virginia Vans
Dyke and Bill Spaller looking on . . . The S.A.E.'s opened their social calendarg
too . . . a party it was . . . Patty Williams was there with Hudson Tour-
tellot . . . Mary Henderson and Bill Wreford seemed to be enjoying thew
party in a big way . . . Ruth Calkins and Pauli
Yergens were together and we saw Jane Holden d
'with Pat Patterson . . . also saw Jean Bertram p
and Bob Emmett talking with Mary Wickes and :

Ed Phillips between dances . . . Betty Barth and R
Chuck Van Winkle were right in the swing of N
things . . . Ellen Rhea and Charles Laitsch seem-c
ingly thought the party quite wonderful too .
Crossing over to the Phi Delt house we saw Peg t
Allderige and Johnny Smithers about to enter p
the door . . . Helen Jean Dean nad Gene Bowles were also there with a
Jayne Roberts and Jimmy Clark . . . and as we passed the Theta Chi t
house we saw Jean Drake and Jim Wanless walking up the front step
to their party . . . Inside we saw Audrey Glazier and Harry Sonneborn . . .S
also Bettie Petrash and Paul Crans . . .
The Chi Phi's had their first house dance too . . . and they called w
in the porter to entertain . . . He had them all greatly amused with his e
rendition of "Shoe Shine Boy" . . . seems as though he used to sing withG
an orchestra some time previous . . . Helen Rowe and Don Effler were
chatting with some of the alums . . . Lavina Dunn and Bob Ellis were
scouting about the house . . . and we saw Margaret Schiller with Johnny
Goodell. . . . The Lambda Chi's were not to be outdone ... and we whipped
into the house just in time to see the candid camera man doing some choice
shots .
