0*Of cabbages
and kings ...
History 67003 tells us that George Washington was the father of our
couintry, that he did not free the slaves, and in the year 1940 he gave many
stuidents a day free fromn all classes. Ti3 ut when Mr. Washington was born
on February 22 he didn't realize that he would some day be the cause of
eslcially dark Monday blues. Though the, celebration of two successive
week-ends is much fun, it certainly is wearing. However, to defend our'
first president and the worn-out feeling that his birthday brought, we did
have fun from last Wednesday night until Monday morning.
What with formal dinners, a dance to th~e tune of Griff Williams' swing-
seers, and breakfasts, Caduceus ran J-Hop a close second. Elsie Jane Bur-
kett, Bob Plum.b, Mr. and Mrs. Charles. Henderson, Trenetta Fox and Jack
McNich ols were fascinated by the caricatures .that covered the walls of the
halls of the well-decorated Ujnion.
PA CI Sets New Record
History was again made on Washington's birthday when the PACI
( C tea dance set a record attendance with nearly 5001 peo-
ple present. While Chan Pinney sang a Union opera
x . song, Jim Hynes, Peggy Maier, Bill Lapworth and Jane
Jewitt stood around with perked up ears. The stag line
was of an especially good length-at least so thought
t the women-Jim H~uber, Bob Plasters, Ben Johnson and
Don Siegel were a, few in the line.
-the And then came the night of nights-the night when
tebeam on the men's faces would have even put the
..I . lights of Chicago to shamnie, the night when you took a,
cab to go everywhere, and thie night that all the liquids
a consumed didn't stop at the usual quota. The new fad
~of sponge corsages was very evident. Few of the more
dring young men were seen wearing very tricky bouquets
./of cigarettes. The credit for this novel lapel piece go~es
to Margot Thorn.
Men Creazte Fashion
A cr oss section of the crowd included Harold Spurway (dressed in the
latest and smartest check-suit). accompanied by Kay Mclvor. Bud Whitely
and Dorothy Boyer, Bill Hynes (wearing that dashing black. suit), Mary
M~cConkey, Neal Seegert, Virginia Keilholtz, Jim Wells, Annabel Dredge,
George Schnier and Berna Deane Purgett. Seen dashing back and forth
from the ballroom to the lobby were Bill Armstrong, Carol' Pitcher, Bar-~
bara Clarke and Paul Nielson, yes, Bob Gach was in
the hall but we wouldn't suggest a thing.
And then may we add that there are a few traitors in
the crowd at this here university. (We hope that Mentor.
Williams won't read that) These two traitors are n~ge
other than John McCune and Beatrice Eher, whqt in-
vaded the gates of that Cow college at its J-Kop.
Seen recuperating after Julius Caesar was killed
many times in the Lydia Mendelssohn were Duane Nelson, Norm Oxhandler,
Frannie Paterson, Dick Slade. Jack Gelder, and Pete Antonelli. Franklyt
we've forgotten who all we saw there'; (where? We know, but-we'll never
tell!) but some more who should have been in the same crowd, if they
weren't, are Johnnie Jensen, Marguerite Mink, Maggie Soensken, Jerry
Wiesner, and Laya Wainger,
And may we close with a suggestion to pay your class dues? We noticed
that Mary Minor, Dave Killians, Anne Hawley, Bob Plasters and Bob Nelson
were a few of the first. And as Confuclous say, "H~e who get there early 1-
catch the worm" UGH!
