Ball Tickets Go On Sale
The 16 remaining tickets to 3
Panhellenic Ball will be on sale
from 3:15 p.m. to 4:15 p.m: today
in the lobby of the League, Bar-
bara Bassett, '40, ticket chairman,
announced yesterday. The tickets
will be sold only to sorority wom-
en, and after today may be pur-
chased by calling Miss Bassett at
of indigestion. None of the leisurely
delight of the true epicurean sitting
down to a delicious repast of turkey
and pumpkin pie with the prospect
of r three beautiful, golden days of
lazy content-streching before him.
We really don't approve, you know.
Not that anyone gives a hoot, but we
don't. Take the people in Upper
1 Michigan for an example (or people
in Ohio, we don't care.) If they had
four days, consecutively, they could,
get home and back in fine style. In-
stead we get two and a half, and*
broken up at that.
One could argue that the people
who live too far away to get home
even in four days would feel just that
much worse. But who ever heard of
the man who objected to an extra day
and a half off, no matter where he
lives? And some of those people go
home with others, anyway. So there.
Which is all very childish in its
rather dense way. After all, there's no
hope of a four day vacation for an-
other ten years so there's no use cry,
ing over spilt milk, but, gee . . .
Sports Club To Sponsor
'Bike Hike' For Women
The outdoor sports club will hold a
"bike hike" at 2:15 p.m. Saturday,
Betty-Lou Witters, '41Ed, president of
the club, announced yesterday.
The first 25 women to sign up on
the bulletin board in Barbour Gym-
nasium before Friday may go on the
hike. After the bicycle ride the group
will return to the Women's AthletiQ
Building for refreshments, ping pong
and bowling. The only expense will
be the rental fee of the bicycle, Miss
Witters said.
