To Soph Prom
Sales Exeeds Last Year's
Record; Favors Will Be
Red Leather Programs
Still a few tickets are available for
the 1940 Soph Prom, to be held from
10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday, Jan. 19, in
the Union ballrooms, it was an-
nounced yesterday by W i l i a m
Schust, '42, chairman of publicity.
Tickets will be sold from 1 p.m. on
today at the Union de-ak, Schust said.
"Red" Norvo and his-band have been
engaged to play for the dance.
Programs for the annual dance1
will be made of red leather, the soph-
omores' traditional color, with the
Michigan crest on it. John Kessel,
'42, announced. The sale of tickets
is far above last year's record at
present, Schust said.
Decorations for the Prom are
unique this year, the main ballroom
being done in -the theme of an 18th
century drawing room, with panels
of 18th century scenes, and the small
ballroom being on the style of a 12th
Dorm Dietician Assistant Says
She Fears Mice But Not Men
By MAYA GRUHZIT '
She might be afraid of dead mice
tied to her door knob-and what
woman would like to find a dead
mouse tied to her door knob-but
when it comes to facing about 800
men who are always complaining
about their food, which is a mighty
dangerous position for anyone to be
in, the situation doesn't cause her
one bit of worry.
But that might be because Kath-
leen Noyle is the assistant dietician
in the new men's dormitories with
plenty of work to worry about other
than what the men are thinking. A.
pretty redhead, as all the men ad-
mit, Miss Noyle is the only young.
woman to be living at the house. In
contrast to Mosher-Jordan. where
she worked last year, Miss Noye
finds the men's dorms an exciting
place to be.,
Men ,Great Milk Drinkers x
The men, she says, are, great milk
drinkers at meal times, drinking
about three times as much as the
women did. Most of the men, in-
stead of having only on.e glass of
milk with each meal, come back for
two or three more.
Being the only young woman liv-
ing there, she gets quite a ribbing
from the residents of the Houses. The
food, of course, comes first. She
thinks that it is a dormnitory institu-
tion to talk about the meals. Several
fellows are still thinking about tak-
ing her out and showing her where
she can get a REAL cup of coffee.
Fire Alarms Hard On Nerves
And the mouse epioode can't be
omitted. She admits that the jok-
ers got their money's worth out of
that; but then she changed the sub-
Noise.is another feature of which
,he men's dorm has plenty. Before
-he disconnected the fire alarm bell,
,h ch rings in her room, it wasn't
inusual for th alarm to gp off three
or four times a night. It's hard on
nth the nerves and ears; .and that's
.vhat the men thought, too.
But aside from Such little things,
Miss Noyle finds making up the. meal
for the men and, listening to their
complaints an interesting job. But
that might be because she finds
making up meals interesting anyway.

YES, WE DID HAVE A NICE VACATION, thank you. . No, we didn't
want to come back to school (do you think we're nuts?) . . . Yes, we
know exams come in less than three weeks, so go 'way and stop bothering us.
Us, personally, we decided our vacation (which seemed so super at the
time) must have been a pretty cold and bleak affair compared with the-tales
which have come in from the sunny (to coin a cliche) South. The Florida
tans which Marty Rudman and Ray Engleman are currently sporting make
us feel like sissies. Bob Luery lent his moral support to the swimming team,
and the postcards which we got from David Zeitlin (who also took a few
days off to go to Cuba-business, he says) managed to reach us on the coldest
day of the year. If what these lads say about Dixie is the real thing, the
local girls might just as well start studying for the Phi Bete key.
Stan Botwinik took his vacation with snow. ... skiing upin Maine has
Florida all beat, according to him. Dick Waterman spent Noo Year's Eve
with a Cleveland bubble named Evy, and Peg Seabright brightened up Sha-
ron, Pa., with her presence when she dropped over for a while to play with-
Emmet Whitehead. Jeff Hall and Don Canham started training early by
hurdling their way through Chicago traffic, and high-jumping over night

It took us
a little while to sleep the whole thing off and discipline. our:-
selves not to break out into coos and gurgles every time we
heard of another friend going off the deep end, but by Fri-
day night we decided that it was high time to give up all the
romanticizing and to take care of our own stolid social life.
Lid-lifting it at the Union we bumped into Dirk Pletcher and
Phyllis Lovejoy, Jack Callouette and a Wellesley freshman,
Marge Green with Bill Leeder, and Walt Roberts trailing Georgiana Clark.
So much frivolity shamed us into stifling our yawns (not the company,
just the hour-of course!) and stretching our smiles to fit our long after-
vacation pusses. . . Decked out in our best leer, we grinned "Hello".at numer-
ous people (also at the Lid-Lifter). Among those who really didn't care
whether we favored them with a greeting were Jim Kehoe and Bea Snoke;
Dick Scherling and Betty Bailie, Don Crumbaker and Ida Bonette, and Jack
Harwood and Dot Kimball.
Saturday night's star fling was "Capricorn Caper," a very all right
dance given by .the Dormitory Board of Assembly. With a short
prayer of thanks for Leap Year and its customs, we dragged
our favorite man over to the League and introduced him to such
notables as Victoria Gellatly and Jim Harper, Betty Lou Witters f
and Jack Barry, June De Cordova, who was looking pretty
starry-eyed herself at Karl Ziehe. Jean Tenofsky seemed to
prefer Goshen, Indiana's Ed Schumann to the local talent, but from our
seats it looked as though Betty Altman was perfectly satisfied with Milton
Katz, as was Betty Lloyd with Kenneth Simpson.
Ruth Coler and Barney Beasly claim that the real reason we won the
basketball game was because of their cheering, but Bobby Trosper and John
Hildinger say they were much louder. We almost got a puck in. our eye at
the hockey game trying to see who Screamer Hynes was with, but we were
Back at the Union (this is getting to be a habit) we tangled glances
with Ted Spangler, who was doing same with Betty Fariss ... spotted Dick
Mansfield and Eleanor Williams, and Stewart Peck and Barbara Fisher.
Buzzed over to the Pi Phi formal long enough to get the low-down on the
1940 evening gowns, to say nothing of Frances Griffin and Lynn Doctor,
Barbara Foote and Jeff Pace, and Ruth Gram and Murray Markland.
