THIS IS THE STORY of a little black book. It was such a pretty little black
book, and on its pretty black cover were printed little gold letters and
they spelled "NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS-1940." And from rover to
cover it was filled with all sorts of oaths (the right kind cf oaths, dear
children). And here are just a few: "Be kind to dumb animals, write home
once a week, be nice to your roommate, no borrowing, no gambling, -no be-I
lieving in war propaganda, and in great big letters, one said-and be sure
to study."
Forget Resolutions In Little Black Book
For nearly three weeks all went well, but dear children, certain people,
must be called to account, I'm afraid. At the Union Friday night Bill David-C
son and Harriet Johnson certainly weren't study-'
ing. And Archie Kodros and Don Treadwellc
weren't remembering the resolutions in the little
, \black book as they drew lucky numbers ; while'
... Dotty Shipman looked on. Nor were Dave Laing
and Jane Elspass, who were waiting for the little
pig that wasn't there to be given away.
How can we be expected to be rid of the in-
fluence of propaganda when the Theta Chis play;
at war with an Air Raid-Ball? It was just like,
Europe-plus: much fun-with black,-outs the
theme of the evening. Among those running for
shelter were Nancy Stock and Dick Strain. (Dick had on the latest style
in tux shirts with orange trunks to match). Others caught in various stages
of dress by the air raid alarm were Peggy Gabriel with Gordon Hardy. tln-
derneath their night caps we found Betsy Orr and Irving Peachey.
Everyone Having Fun - - Even 'Prince'
Saturday night the Phi Kaps were promoting the gambling instinct!
Pedro Ortmeyer was playing black-jack with Ted Novak. Carl Culver was
seen trying to win enough to buy Kris Lee a 5Q0-buck dish of ice cream,
which she didn't think she wanted anyway. At the soda
fountain were from left to right Anna Jean Williams, Da-
vid Cushing, Ruth Kinsey, and Eric Munsen. Everyone
seemed to be having an awful lot of fun-even Princee
(he's the police dog); but he doesn't have exams, and
we mustn't forget the little black book.
The Acacians were giving millions of dollars away .
Saturday night.. Looking_ quite at home in this at-
mosphere we saw Lynn Doctor and Frances Griffin. At
the roulette wheel, doubling their money, were Mildred
Curtis and George Matthews.
Winter was in fill swing Sunday, but Barb Swinton and Roy Jones did
venture out to go to the Wolverine open-house, and Ruth Diehlman with
Jack- Hoover did likewise. Everyone agreed it was a super open-house, and
just the place to be, but the thought of the little black book made us add
the name of Vera Smith, Tom Aye, Marion Powless, and Art Bennett to
those who must give an accounting.
And now, dear children, all stories must end and so must this one. But
most stories have a moral and the mporal, dear, dear children, of this stoiy,
is: That's life.l
