informal radio dances were started.

have been held each week, but this is

AndaIJow IDo You swer The Phone? . . .
,posking of call:, we wonder what would be the best answer to the
best anwer to the sorority that instrmted their Iledes to use a meek and
polite tone when answering the phone, and to say: "This
is heaven, which one of the angels would you like to
Speak to?"
Baseball retains the limelight as Le Sport Populaire,
mail si si. Kappa Kappa Gamma played Jordan-ye olde
champs of last year-yesterday. The score was 16 to 2 in
avor of the Jordan girls. We saw Ginny Osgood winding
up at home plate, and Nancy Surgenor, Virginia Vorr-
hees and Earla Dodge were all out for the losers. Jane
Coniell, and Jane Scott were batting for the winning
team and we also saw Many Richardson on the diamond.
We think any sport has reached the height ot its iIolphlarity when
these busy college lassies tuke tiie out to hold a piACtic( ,ame as the
Mosher gals did the other day. Marjorie Kern, captain, was iii the thick
of the fray, and we saw Martha Dew stepping up to bat with a casual air!t

The tennis courts are fairly teeming with life
these days. Can't understand it except that as
Minnie always says, "Tennis is one place you can -
always play a love game if you don't try hard
enough." Mary Beatty and Jad Uthoff have been
tearing off a set now and then, dashing around
the court, reaching for a high lob, stooping to
scoop up a net ball-we can see it now---very ex-
citing. Then Dashua Aurbach, the little Czecho-
slovakian, plays a colorful game, and has proved hec if to be quite adept.
A little bird told us that Barbara Epstein tinks about playing every time
she goes to and from Mosher.
Old Home Week A t The Lea gie...
Best place to meet people the past week was the Undergrad Office of
the League. Sort of old home week. Simply everyone was there, my deah,
at one time or another. In this corner-and on a sofy, no less, we saw
Tad Lynch and Libby Haige then Mary Ann Berg and Jean Noyes managed
to find room on the other couch, but Dorothy Merki was perched precarious-
ly on the table and "Pinky" Pinkerton stood chatting with no one in par-
ticular and everyone in general as the merry mob came and went.
Then Monday night we saw Maxine Baribeau and Jane Dunbar turn
into the League followed by Ellen Krieghoff and Dorothy Nichols. "What
Ho!" we said to ourselves-"a meeting's afoot"-Senior
Society, in fact, and we also saw Janet Clark and Betty
Slee (Sletty Bee as she is now called it seems).
Barby Johnson was deep in a quandry as to what
to do for the home-town man whom she was mad at
on his birthday, not so long past. She finally solved
the problem with a telegram which read, "Happy
Birthday, Idiot." She signed it, "Delight." Solves the
problem quite.
And speaking of Michigras (you were speaking of Michigras, weren't
you?) Minnie heard a rumor to the effect that the Garg (humor maga-
zine, 'tis said) is due to get a dose of its own medicine wher' a certain truck-
load of feminine pulchritude passes the judges' stand. By the way, we're
going to miss Psi U's Baby Dumpling, if he doesn't make another appear-
ance this year. He was all primed to walk away with the baby show last
year and then discovered it was a parade instead. We worried all year for
fear he'd caught a cold, too.
