Winter Effect Is Atained
With Cottn Sno~bal' ;
To Cover Chanddiier
Silver and white accompaniment to'
the annual Panhellenic Ball will
carry out a wintry theme from S
pm. to 1 a.m. Friday, Dec. 1 in the
Walnut Room of the League.
Against a background of white and
silver papered ceiling, sparkling cot-
ton will transform the chandeliers
into a mass of snowballs. A new
affect will be obtained by cutting
ott the organization's insignia in
the ceiling drapery so that the let-
ters will appear electrically lighted
by the bulbs overhead.
To Display New Crest
Panhellenic's new crest, purchased
this year,' will occupy a prominent
place just above the orchestra. The
appearance of this crest is thought
of as a significant manifestation of
the organization's policy of more co-
operation and integration among
the various sororities on campus.
Souvenirs this year will carry out
the spirit of wintry jollity with glis-
tening programs of white felt.
Dick Stabile To Play
Dick Stabile and his orchestra, re-
cently termed the "Rhythmic New

melody for the annual affair. Johnny
Drake, saxophonist and vocalist, the
rhythm quartet, and the Stabile sex-
tette will all be part of the entertain-

Letter Box
To the Editor:
It seems to me that the Central
Committee for JGP really has a prob-
lem on its hands. What is more
troublesome than deciding whether
or not they should use men in their
coming production. As for myself,
I can easily understand why they
'have been having all the hairpulling
and 'catting' in their recent meet-
To complicate matters I can see
that there are several angles from
which the problem should be studied.
But there's the main point .
should JGP be a project for the
Junior Girls, or should they try to
appease the public and perhaps come
out in the black???
It seems to me that tradition is
a matter which is too very senti-
mental, and all that, but why should
it interfere with the play? After
all men can play their parts much
better than the women, so why not
bring them into the play and make
it a riproaring success? Then too,
there is another thought. Wouldn't
it be a lot easier to get the girls
together for rehearsal if there were
males around?
Just a passing thought,

Accessories make the costume, es-
pecially if they come in contrasting
colors which serve to lighten and add
interest. New suits and coats are
glorified, and old ones rejuvenated.
A rust-colored suede bag, cylinder-
shaped with matching rust gloves,
would be ideal with a tweed suit.
"Men like red hats," or they are re-
puted to, and with the red hat comes
an enormous red purse, shaped like
a muff with a dashing gold zipper
on the top.
More like a miniature suitcase than
a bag, is a large red wool purse with
a decorative clasp. This purse would
be very handy for someone who

Jordan Hall women may only rate
as freshmen academically, but social-
ly, as shown by their complete mas-
tery of pre-date technique, they de-
serve at least senior ranking.
It seems that a group of .oope:-
atively-minded women, residing in
the fifth-middle corridor of the dor-
mitory, decided that. as long as they
had no upperclassmen around to
advise them as to the relative merits
of the men (?) they were about to
date, they might as well profit from
the experiences of their own select

Posted Two Sheets
So they posted two sheets of paper
on the door of their phone booth-
from which humble beginnings most
blind dates were found to originate.
On the paper labelled "white
sheet," are listed the names of those
men who have been found to measure
up to feminine qualifications of a
"good date."
And on the "black sheet" are the
names of those who hgve been found,
by trial and error methods, to be
seriously deficient in one or more of
the .necessary qualities. Specific in-
formation as to the nature of these
"defects" is often included on the
black list.
Corrections Made Daily
Corrections and additions are made
daily, with demotions from the white
to the black list occuring more fre-
quently than promotions the other
way around.
So far, the idea has proved so suc-
cessful that other corridors are
threatening to follow through with
their own eligibility lists.
