Tarty Line
By the Neighbor

"Rat-races, chum, that's what they were, every single one of them. Just
overrun with Northwesterners and people who'd gotten blanket bids-so
many blanket bids as there were this week-end! And there were hoards that
just blew in-nobody seemed to know where or how they got in. Rabble."
Well, you can imagine how we felt when we overheard that. We began
wondering if Michiganders were getting stuffy; personally, we had a lot
of fun with a crowd of new people around and then on top of that having a
big assortment of acquaintances breezing in to say hello and stay for a whirl
or two.
Betas Go Musical.. .
Because there were plenty of things doing and loads of places to go,
the Betas got under way early with a dinner down at the Allenel before
their pledge formal. There was quite some strife what with practically a
quorum being natives of Ohio, and holding their own on their native folk
music rather ably. Some of the ring
leaders were Harrison Lowrey, Nan.
Gossard, Bart Meyers and Bob Barnett.E
They forgot their feud a little later
y though, right after the "Peerade" to!
-' sing the Loving Cup, the song that won=
them the Interfraternity Sing last spring.
Really quite a musical crowd on the
whole-a couple of them even swung outt
on drums and sweet potato solos. Most
dramatic couple at the party: Ben Wampler and Mary Jordan, respectively
a law apprentice and a private secretary in "Counsellor-at-Law."
Of course from there it was only a step to the Alpha Delt's informal
where Bob Winter and Tiny Blodgett were really trucking in the grandi
manner, with Doc Brace among the admiring ring of spectators. Bill Elliot
was there-one of those who came back for the week-end-with Betht
O'Roke, looking in on the hearth fire while "Woodie" Wood and Bill Spicert
were dashing over for a look at the Beta formal.
Formal Or Informal? ...
The Delts drifted into a new angle for formals; there were groups!
sitting all around-on the floor-in tails and long dresses telling bedtime
stories. Betty Shipman and John Dighton noticed Doris Mercer and Merle
Johnson easing away during the evening and next they knew the coupleI
was back with the Delt pin on Dorie instead of Merle. Helen Culley and'
Anne Paschal arrived at the Theta Xi dance Friday with a fantastic tale of
their da&s-Stan Duffendack and Vern Applegate-calling for them
swathed in bandages and then of drawing them danceward by said band-
The Sigma Nus got symbolic Friday at their pledge formal and gave
miniature wooden paddles out as favors to their guests, among whom were1
Genevieve Gustafson fromLudington with Bill Hope, Betty Smith and Billt
Harrison and Esther Baker with Jack Andrew. Probably a safe gamble toi
call the favors the only paddles a pledge has ever been glad to see coming.
No Touchdowns Here ...x
Considering that they had neither muchAtrouble to forget, or mucht
victory to celebrate after the game Saturday, everyone was going after a
good time pretty madly. And naturally with football players in evidence-
Carl Culver and Genevieve Spurgeon were chatting with Norm Purucker at
the Phi Kappa Sigma house, Tom Harmon was expond-
ing on this and next season, and Bob Westfall-Class of
'4t-about whom you'll be hearing quite a lot more next
year according to sports writers, was over at Theta Chi.
There the orchestras went into "My R'everie" three timesn
at the instigation of Marrianne Holaday, Howard Crusey'st
guest. t
Lu Miller, Bill Thompson, Jane Todd and Carl Mc-
pherson were in the crowd dancing outside at the Psi U
formal on Saturday, the same night Acacia held a dance instead of a hayrided
on account of rain. Vernon Poest, it seems, had to rescue a couple of pingF
pong balls that Bobby Gnerich drove powerfully out of an Acacia window.t
Phi Psi boasted the Northwestern drum major Fred Elbel; Chi Phi pondered
over a troop of tux-coated men whom nobody could quite explain and Sigmao
Chi lent an ear and eye to an orchestra that donned masks in keeping withe
the selection. t

Financial Facilities for the Faculty
The law of demand and supply has never been
repealed, and even a college professor may find it
hard to make both ends meet. That is the time to get
a Personal loan-any amount up to $300. No co-
signers. No embarrassing credit inquiries. No
security of the kind usually required elsewhere. The
only requirement is the ability to repay in small
monthly payments.
