There's a room in the League, for-
nerly known as the Game Room
and more recently dubbed 'The
Hang-Out,' where the six members
of the costume committee for "Pig
in a Poke," plus Chairman Jane Nuss-
baum, Miss Ethel McCormick and
occassionally Director Dick McKel-
vey, struggle manfully with an array
of cotton prints, satines, broadcloths,
and even a bit of net.
Committee Pressed For Time
It's the scene, quite literally, of a
struggle against time. That com-
mittee, with its occasional assistants,
must turn out costumes for four
choruses and approximately a dozen
other people, and in the latter case
there are several costumes demanded
for each. The deadline-March 22,
at 8:30 p.m.
Counting up the number of cos-
tumes is only half the tale. One
must take into account the period
which is the setting for the story. The
latter half of the 19th century was
the period of ruffles-yes, indeed,
ruffles on one's dress, all six petti-
coats, and pantalets, too. Fortunate-
ly, one of the three machines being
used by the committee has a 'ruffle
attachment.' You put in a straight
piece of material and it comes out
ruffled. It's a great advantage since
approximately 1,600 yards of ruffles
miust be sewn oni the various Cos-
Black Stockings Finally Obtained
One of the major difficulties fac-
ing the committee was solved when
the long black stockings to be worn
by the 'Can-Can' chorus were found.
Only the black feather fan and hign
button shoes in an outsize remain to
be located. With the men's cos-
tumes arriving Saturday from New
York, Miss Nussbaum's problems are
fairly well solved, except-
It's that last exception that finds
the costume committee issuing an

SOS to all junior women. If you have
10 minutes to spare (or an after-
noon-much better), spend it in the
Game Room. They have jobs of
every dimension, from sewing on a
hook to making a dress

Trty Lne
By the Neighbor
"Well, here we are-," but not quite the same! We're all pretty sleepy
people after another full weekend, but not a bit regretful about it all.
For the class of '42 we raise three hearty cheers after their gala nautical
Frolic. On shipboard we metBetty Hines and Bud Keetch strolling around
the deck with Warren King and Elise Clark between dances. When Tommy
Tucker swung into his taunting rhythm again, Bud Beth and Jean McCon-
key followed suit with a new shag step and Betty Pusch and Jack Thompson
joined the dancers. Among others enjoying T. Tucker's super band were
Agnes Crow and Bill Comstock, Irene Musgrove and Dick Strain and Nancy{
Chapman and Ted Kennedy.
Freshies ao Nautical
Crossinig the gangplank during intermission, we saw among the "sea" of
faces Jean Ramsey with Ernie Sharer and Gretchen Hasselbring with Ben
Marino. On the terrace Nancy Gould and Buzz
Brummel with Betty Whitely and Ford Brown
were enjoying some refreshment in the form of
gingerale. Trying to barge through the milling
' throng of dancers in search of the maestro's
..autograph were Barbara Suffrin and Bob Nabat-
off followed by Muriel Fishman and Tommy Good-
kind with Millie Epstein and Bob Lehvan in tow.
Ih the throes of that smoothie "Deep Purple" were
Ann McCarthy and Fred Picotte, Mari Eichel-
berger and Tom Keppelman and Betsy Roosa and
Charley King. Keep it under your hats now, but Jim Palmer hung his pin on
Jeanne Hastie in the midst of the Union lobby-strictly confidentially, now!
Friday night at the League found Bud Lundahl and Dottie Shipman
bull-sessioning in between dances with Ralph Zimmerman and Mary Ash-
ley anq Ruth Allen and Don Barnes. Listening to the Pi Phi's and Phi Psi's
raising their voices in song were Larry Gay and Virginia Palmer with
Martha Bedford and Bob Prasil at their table.
More Tea Dances - .
At the Alpha Epsilon Phi tea dance Saturday afternoon were Shirley
Toubus and Jerry Mecklenberg with Marcia Sharfman and Jerry Baron.
Talking to Doris Wechsler and Lenny Wingert we saw Ruth Rubiner and
Arnold Friedman. Among the other merry-makers were
Eunice Fuldauer and Buddy Gins, and Marcia Wilk and
Sheldon Ellis.
At Zeta Tau Alpha's informal dinner and radio dance
Saturday night Jo Kift and Bill Craft had a wonderful>
time gloating over a grand slam won from Betty Boothby
and Bill Wetherby. After dinner we saw Dottie Cox and
Karl Beck deep in conversation with Helen Westie and
Doug Edwards. On the dance floor were Beth Anderson
and Andy Gillette beating out the rhythm with Fay Rand-
olph and Art Boettjer and Louise Aimmerman and Paul 5
Saturday was the big night for the seniors at the
League, and among the crowd were B. J. Mansfield and
Harold Stewart and Madeline Krieghoff and Tom Cain.
While Marcia Connell and Russ Strickland danced to
Charlie Zwick's swing music, Virginia Voorhees with Jack Collins and Betty
Spangler with Neil Levenson intently watched the identification pictures.
Seniors Revive Class Spiri ...
Betty Shaffer with Joe Hinshaw and Maxine Petersen with Ralph
Heikkinen helped prove that the seniors certainly have some class spirit.
Among some other '39ers helping to make the night a big success were Jane
Elspass with Dave Laing and Bob Canning with Mary Mooney. All in all,
we should say that the seniors as well as the freshmen really know how
to have themselves a wonderful time!
Over at the Tri-Delt house Saturday iight we found Migles Meloche and
Dick Shetter dancing to the radio with Betty Clark and George Trendle.
Helen Marsh and Ed Bradshaw with Mareau Price and Wally Hinkle nibbled
sandwiches and drank punch while talking with Ann Wills and Hank Van
Dancing to the swing tunes of Bob Steinle and his Melody Men Saturday
night at the Union were Ann Hall and Jimmy Colenso and. Genevieve Spur-
geon and Bob Wayne. Among some of the other dancers were Jerry Wilson
and Ed Lahti and Virginia Hoezle and Bob Dimmler.
