Dear Mother:
What's wrong with me mother? Here I am in a University famous
as a happy husband hunting ground, and all I do is sit, sit, and sit. The
Phi Kaps, Acacias, Michigamuas (they're all BMOCs) all had parties this
week-end but no one called me to go. And, mother, they have weekly dances
at the League and Union and some sort of athletic event scheduled almost
every night (that is what The Daily says) and still all I do is sit and think
with nothing to do.
Union Sponsors Bunny Hop
Most of the girls are popular, too, in fact some of them are BWOC's.
Why Friday night Mary Lou Ewing went to the Union
and she said everyone was there, Jeanne Noyes and
Bruce Beyer, and Millie Hulbert went to the dance
with Dale Chamberlain. Saturday night Jeanette Hof-
man went to the Union Bunny Hop with Kenny James,
and she saw Janet Hiatt dancing with Bill Hander, and
Jean Rakestraw who was there with Ben Case. At
the Union Grill, Esther Honeywell was talking to Phil
r Herman while Dottie Couzens came rushing in late
with Russ Crois.
Over at the Phi Kap house, the boys had an in-
formal radio dance and ever so many went over to the House Friday night.
Sue Adams was seen there with Dick Ebbets and Marge Allison went with
Bury Otis. Kristin Lee came late with Fred Culver and
joined Bob Pinkney and Jean Morgan who had been there
from the start of the party. Mary tulbert spent the eVo
ning at the house with KenmAy Marble, too.
Leet Keefer and Frances Oseboom slipped out from thej
Alpha Omicron Pi dance for a "coke" Saturday night,
but hurried back to join Kitty Maytag and Larry Wick.
Blanche Anderson was at the House with Cyril Collins-
you remember her, don't you, mother?-and Irene Do-
herty was there with Al Healy.
Kappa Nus Hold Dance
On that very night the Kappa Nus had a dance at
their house, too, mother. Dotty Davidson went to the
dance at that house with Bill Shkind. Gertrude Coh~n
and Phil Baris joined them later, and not so long after
Hilda Sneider and Norman Rosenfield came along. Muriel
Levy and Dan Schmidt were there, and Cyril Schneit and
Gerald Eder, too.
I guess I didn't tell you, mother, but I did get to the
A.A.U. track meet that night, and it was thrilling. Carolyn Denfield and
Johnny Goodell were so excited when Ralph Schwarzkopf won the two-mile
race against the famous Finn, Maki. I saw Patty Donnelly
and Tom Hutton who were enthusiastic about his breaking
that record, too. Freda Vandermeer and Burd Pierce slip-
ped out early, though, to get to the League before the floor
became too crowded.
The Michigampa boys had a party Saturday night and
everyone had a super time. Running Buffalo John Nichol-
son took Doris Yoder over to the Phi Delt house for the
evening where they saw Dottie Shipman with Stoneface
Don Treadwell and Rowena La Coste with Squaw Gait
Phil Westbrook. Arrow Back Bill Davidson, Half Wind Dye Hogan and
Great Falls Butch Jordan were seen around, too.
I hope you don't mind all this chatter, mother, but I get a feeling of
reflected glory in it. Would you please send me a pamphlet on how to land
a man so I can get to one party before I graduate?

Council Posts

Of lickets Tomorrow
In League ,Ballroom
In violation of the precedent estab-
lished in recent years, members of
League Council yesterday decided to
announce all of next year's Council
excepting the president of the League
and chairman of Judiciary Council
at Installation Banquet Monday. The
change was made to heighten the
effectiveness of the banquet as the
primary occasion for the announce-
nment of League positions.
It has been the custom to announce
the secretary and treasurer of the
League as well as the president and
chairman of Judiciary Council a few
days before the banquet, and presi-
dents of WAA, Panhellenic Associa-
tion and Assembly have been an-
nounced during the week preceding
Change Is Made
Another change has been instituted
regarding the use of a speaker. It
has been customary to have a formal
speaker for the occasion, in addition
to the fact that Dean Alice Lloyd
always gives a short informal talk.
This year it is planned to dispense
with the formal speaker in the inter-
ests of brevity since the business of
the banquet itself takes considerable
Tickets for the banquet which will
be held at 6 p.m. Monday in the ball-
room of the League will be sold from
3 p.m. to 5 p.m. tomorrow, 3 p.m. to
4:30 p.m. Thursday, and 3 p.m. to
5 p.m. Friday. Attendance at the
banquet is almost universal for wo-
men. Tickets are priced at 65 cents.
Many Announcements Made
Installation Banquetis not only
the occasion for the announcement
of memers of League Council, but
also of orientation advisers, Pan-
hellenic Board members, the sopho-
more and special junior members of
Judiciary Council. Assembly Board
members, and winners of the Ethel
McCormick and music scholarships.
In addition, it has long been a tia-
dition that Senior Society and Mor-
tar Board tap new members at the
banquet as the concluding features
of the evening.

Eligible Freshmen Named
For League Conmitees
Names of approximately 200 fresh-
man women were posted on the bul-
letin board in the Undergraduate Of-
fice of the League yesterday by Ro-
berta Leete, '40, chairman of the merit
system committee.
These freshmen have signified theil.
interest in League activities by peti-
tioning for positions on the various
committees which handle the varied
activities of the League. Their names
have been checked for eligibility, and
the list posted yesterday announced
the names of the freshmen and the
committees to which they have been
Miss Leete stressed the fact that
freshmen should check these lists to
discover to which committees they
now belong, and should continue to
watch the bulletin board for notice of
meetings. Most of the initial meet-
ings will be held next week following

plumbs new depths. John F. Somerville, Jr., '40
The fact that there is warfare, and----------
that it is traditional, between the
lawyers and the engineers came as a
distinct surprise to this corner, it
having been previously upposed that
persons armed with slide rules and
a notable paucity of intelligence would
not be adequately equipped to cope
with legal minds. Lest any engineer
be too discomforted by the engineer's
announcement that retaliation was
planned by the lawyers, peris the
thought. It is peculiarly appropriate
to repeat at this Easter season that
"little children should be suffered." 4
It is regrettable that the so-called F. /
"Engineer's Protective Committee"
will not even have the opportunity
of becoming martyrs but if they are
so aethetically inclined and acute-It''

"One messy Cinderella dress. One
flannel night shirt. Ten chicken
dresses. One fairy's costume-slight-
ly dirty." No, not the wardrobe of
someone with a dual personality,'or
even Elsa Maxwell's party wardrobe;
merely Richard McKelvey, Grad.,
director o Child: n .Theatre, mak-
ing an inventory of the League pro-
perty and costume room.
With the end of the year as far
as dramatic productions are con-
cerned, McKelvey was checking up
o nthe properties room, familiarly
known as Room Five, in order to find
out what had been collected during
the past year. Last year a large yellow
egg and a throne were the outstand-
ing additions to Room Five; and this
year it took much cleaning to separate
the accumulated dust from the many
properties and costumes which would
be valuable for future use.
Scenery Familiar
As one enters Room Five after in-
ventory, scenery from the four Chil-
drens' Theatre productions and the
1940 JGP can be recognized at vari-
ous angles. Bedroom interiors are
stacked on top of store fronts, and
a kitchen wall lies next to a wall of
a Hindu king's room. Stairs and
cupboards, a puppet show ,and a tree
stump stand in front of all these in
one corner.
Against the other walls, free from
scenery, are situated large trunks
filled with hand properties, makeup,
and tools of all sorts. Large swords
of no particular era, two large, and
two small stuffed carrots, a bo-peep
stick, and a box of Sunny Day clothes
pin are merely a few of the gadgets
which will probably be converted next
year to serve a purpose totally dif-
ferent from their use this year.

of dresses is just as varied as the col-
lection of properties. Most of the
dresses are ageless, adaptable to any
period in history. A "poor girl's"
dress is on the, rack besides 12 bi-
cycling dresses. 1890 chorus girls'
outfits are lined up between a dairy
maid's dress and a queen's costume.
The costumes on these racks will in
all probability be changed for future
productions as to style and size.
Room Five this year is exceedingly
different from the Room Five of three
years ago when the majority of the
properties and costumes had to be
bought or built for that special play.
As each year adds more to Room Five,
the budgets for the following year
become lower and McKelvey and the
