Chicly clothed in hew white blank-
ets upon which was printed in red
letters "Frosh Project Dance-Heav-
enly Daze," these canine advertisers
proceeded to draw the attention of
the entire campus to the forthcoming
dance, which will be given from 9

with one exception neither were there
any protests, although Eli, an English
bull who is the pride of the Beta
Theta Pi house was not at all reticent

offered him. The Acacia dog, a St.
Bernard named Thag may have re-
sented this for he went on several sit-
down strikes, and only with the great-
est persuasion could he be induced
to resume his marching for the cause!
Hand-made blankets, tailored to
order, were none too good for these
doggy laborers, and final fittings were
given them by member of the publicity
committee at the League yesterday

to the business of promotion for the

answers to the name of Prince. An-

to Kappa Delta Rho, Major, a St.
Bernard, is the property of the Lamb-
da Chi Alpha house, and Sigma Phi
claims a great Dane named Duke.
Various members of the freshman
class took turns leading the dogs
around campus and along State
