Greetings, Happy New Year and what a vacation . . . but here we are
back again to welcome you all and look back into the annals of the past
year .. . to see what you were doing in the dim dark past of 1937 (and what
you may have resolved never to do again) . . . Knights and dates had
more night life than we can possibly put in the short space we have to
make the rounds . . . but there were a few high lights that just can't be
So here 'tis ... and here's hoping Santa filled your stockings full to the
brim, incidentally . . . Just as he filled many, many hours full of grand
and happy times for vacationers .. . Detroit was no
4" doubt the center of more goings on for Michigan
knights and dates than any other city (but various
and sundry cities were close rivals . . . and a
starting point of Detroit's fun and frivolity was
00. College Night at the Golf Club . . . What a party,
and just almost everybody was there ... Ruth Allen
j f was there with Bob Barnes and it seemed just like
a reunion party for all the people ... Frances Bro-
therton and George McCain were having grand fun together . . . Saw Janet
Burns and Joe Spitzley there and Mr. and Mrs. Don Miller (the former
Carolyn Morse, you know). Flint was full of excitement too and the Beta
Rose Ball was one of the better parties of vacation time . . . Peg Jackson
and Neil Conover were in the party.
Not A Haunt In The Town.. .
We may think Ann Arbor becomes a veritable haunted spot when the
majority of us leave for vacation ... bljt not for a moment . . . Ann Arbor
is quite the gay place-with party after party . .. and all of the very best
sort, too. . . Never a dull moment.. . Mary Margaret Meloche, Beth O'Roke,
Mary Piersol and Betty Bonisteel gave a party in the League and invited
loads and loads of people . . . Genny Osgood, Carolyn Coler, Vin Moore,
Becky Bursley and Scott Osler were some of the people we saw there . . .
Mike Neal gave a very fine party at the Alpha Phi house too ... Gwen Lemon
