FRIDAY AFTERNOON a strange, new glow descended on Ann Arbor.
Could it have been the lack of classes? Could it have been the abun-
dance of snow? No, it was intuition, telling people they were about to
see Utopia, in the form of J-Hop at the I-M.
However, it was hours before the sight of Utopia that the Delta Upsi-
lons, in the spirit of things new and dif-
ferent, hung a big sign over their front
door proclaiming the house to be "Under'
New Management." Among those to
.;.... take over were Marion Bill, Charlotte
Cleary, Betty Whitely and Annabel Van
Winkle, who were the guests of Mac
Blaisdell, Roger Madden, Port Brown
and Dick Adams.
Ja yho pmania Was Utojpia ...
After moving into a new abode, let's re-live the whole weekend. Start
with supper at the Sigma Chi house, with Bill Graham and Jane Vennell,
and Bob Collins and Ginny Alfin. Then rush to the most important event-
that Utopia J-Hop called Jayhopmania. In the crowds and crowds were
Janet Unruh with Carter Chamberlain, Betty Lou Robinson with Lynn Doc-
tor, Ginny Nathanson with Jeff Solomon, Peggy Cornelius with Gordon
Hardy and Annette Stroup with Bob Merriman.
Then the crowds got so thick that the only positive thing is that Bob
Sadler, David Ladd, Martha Scott, Tom Tussing, Carolyn Coller and Bar-
bara Simmons were there, but who was with who? So at that stage of
mix-up it was best to stay in the mood of a perfect world,
and follow Bud Cox and Harriet Stauffer to the Congress
breakfast at the Wolverine.
Most honored guests there were Tommy Dorsey and'
Ted Fio Rito. But prominent too were Phil Westbrook
and Rowena La Coste, Nancy Carstrom and Mike Massa
and Alice Lord and Jim Huber. The crowning event of
that breakfast was when Virginia Frey was in a tizzie be-
cause she was about to be late at the dormitory, so T.
Dorsey ordered out his orchestra bus for her and date
Jack Acker to ride home in.
Ps U's GoWne potn 0
Now stop looking so sleepy on Saturday afternoon, and we're off to
Huron Hills to watch the Psi Upsilons doing winter sports. Jim Grill, Phyllis
Fowler, Margaret Wright and Henry McDonnell were there. A spectacular
tobaggan run was made by Bill Langford and Jim Barrett, which ended
with the riders no where near the toboggan. Then warming themselves up
inside the club house were Paul Keller and Liz Titus, and Speed Harbert
with Jean Knappen.
Whirling weekend, isn't it? Now back into town to the Chi Phi house
to have an informal dinner with Ginny Osgood, Barry Ratliff, Jean Lang-
ford and Bill Church. A last glimpse there at Polly Donnelly and Tom
Hutton, who were also dining; then change into formal clothes for some
dances. At the Chi Psi lodge were Roger Kelly and Edith Longyear, with
Spec Reitz and Betty Keppler. Then at Phi Delta Theta your gaze might
have fallen on Joan Davidson dancing with Joe Reid, and Phyl Tonkin with
Jack Meyer. Also in evidence there were Dottie Merki, Jim Gormsen, Betty
Baile and Dick Sherling.
So to the end of a wonderful time, and the Beta Pi's said farewell at a
Sunday dinner where there was Sue McClure, Lorne Black, Sally Coburn
and Chuck Barrett. Others with the Beta's were Mary McConkey and
Betsy Robinson, sitting beside "Screamer" Hynes and Bob Johnson. With
that finale another glamorous J-Hop chapter is written.
