... of Cabbages
You are such a very nice man that I know you already have your Christ-
mas list made out (I have) but just in case, I though perhaps you would
like to know how good all the people in Ann Arbor have been these past
few days. You see, this was the last weekend
they all had here, and so, they held parties of
every kind; formals, bowery balls, cabarets-
all in the spirit of Christmas. Would you like
me to tell you all about them? That's what I
thought, but anyway-just to prove how anx-
ious they are to please you-
First of all, there was Sophomore Cabaret
-Winter Wonderland, it was called and Santa Claus, you should have been
there. Marian Wight and Bert Katzenmeyer, Fran Martin and Bill Wal-
lace, Mary Allen and Kemp Rodgers were, and claim it was very much fun,
Over Sigma Alpha Epsilon way (out on Washtenaw, Santa) were Vir-
ginia Ward and Bob Burckhalter, Charles Heinen and Adelita Ortiz, Jim
Meadows and Elaine Jacobs who were at the pledge formal there.
"They Like 'The Christmnas Spirit._.c
Another pledge formal was given by Kappa Nu, and a very, very gay
one, Mr. Claus. (excuse the formality) Jack Laro and "Billy" Rich were
having a lot of fun, as can be said for Philip Ostrow and Frieda Halpert,
Bill Kramer and Ruth Schulman, Jack Pitlk (jitterbug extraordinaire, they
say) and Betty Schulman.
Friday being a popular day for dances, Beta Theta Pi held its pledge
formal. Carols were very popular, it seems, for Mar Rogers and Pat Me-
Kinnon, Jane Skiles and Harrison Lowery, Patty Hadley and Jack Kalby,
Barbara Wood and Bob Bush were perfecting
"Jingle Bells,"-so you can see, dear Santa,
(you don't mind my calling you Santa, do you?)
that everybody is really getting into the spirit of
things. The formal was way out at Huron
Hills. (You-go over that on your way to De- ,
And now on to Saturday night, which was
just as busy-and how are Dunder and Blitzen? Oh yes, and Mrs. Claus?
Saturday night-now let's see. Here's one I know you would have liked-
"The Jingle Ball" which was held at the Union. Harvey Shulman and
Teddy Field, Jim Halligan and Harriet Sharkey were there, but say, you
were too, weren't you? I am sorry to have missed you. It would have saved
me a lot of trouble, for this yearly report is really a chore. Alex Wilkie and
Ginger Hawkins, Dick Martin and Bobby Schreck along with Jane Wright
and Newt Hager, who were there.
Santa Has A Southern Drawl
And that reminds me. I hear you were over at the Law Club Saturday
night when they gave their Christmas party. You certainly made the
rounds, and I think that was very considerate, seeing how busy you are and
all, but I have a question. Mary McSherry and Bill Glass plus Jane Els-
pass and Dave Laing claim you have adopted a southern accent-now the
question is, are you from the North Pole or the South Pole? Tsk, tsk,,
you'd better watch that, Santa.
Acacia had a party, too. Dutch Poest and Bobby Gnerich, John Mulkey
and Betty Burgess, George Matthews and Lyndon Brode, and Jerry Mc-
Kinley and Gardiner Drape were there, having a
1100 very fine time.
And then there was a costume ball over at Phi
4 4 Sigma Kappa, or, to give it a real title-a bowery ball.
eDick Bell and Cecily Forrest, Russ Elmer and Jane
Hunt, Marian Jane Cowing and Vince Mongel say,
quote, it was super merry, unquote. Marian Phillips
(in a Russian costume) was there with Jack Parsons,
and Jo Kift was with Hal Fry. Bob Slack was the
man on the flying trapeze, at least that's what he
And so that's all-and now I hope you see, Santa, that all the Ann Arbor
people have been celebrating the holiday season with the proper spirit and
have been real good-so remember them kindly.
P.S. I've been good too. (hint, hint).
