To Be Guests
At Coke Bar

Two of the biggest of the year's biggest formals were overshadowed this
veelkid by the sudden rush of fraternities to satisfy your and my ever-
present yen for costume parties. It was mostly pretty rugged stuff and, as
Ie always say, there's nothing like flinging oneself about in some good,
healthful, rugged exercise. There were six-shooters here and stills (no, not
-he camel a-shot kind) -there and fun poppin' all over the place.
The Theta Chi boys didn't fail their public; they came through with
their annual Bowery Ball (And no matter how you feel about it, Madame
Proofreader, don't put an "r" in the "Ball"). The thing was complete
from the honest-to-goodness sawdust on the floor (and Heaven save us
from ow'honest sawdust!) tb Ellen Rhea's floradora hat with its feather
curling from here to there. Among the Boweryites present were Jackie
Laird and Leon Coquilette, Claire Reed-Hill and Chuck Dillman, Mary
C(raig hughes and Dick Strain, and Kit Carson and Chuck Low
The Old West Rides Again.. .
The Spirit of the Old West (in a horrible sort of way) was typified by
the party at the Beta house the same night. There was a thirty foot ah
urn . . . milk bar, a brass rail and even (dare we mention such indeli-
. cate objects?) three cuspidors! The high point'
" == of the evening, was, so we are told, reached with
a royal water pistol fight which went right on to
L _include water glasses and water pitchers. One
gets soooo cultured at these institutions of higher
learning. Annie Stresau and Jim Holland whip-
ped the water pistols around with vim and vigor-not at each other, we
hope, though. So did Jean Schafer and Lorne Black, Margaret Cobb and
Jim Duffie, Margot Thom and Hank Watson, and Pat Stelle and Bob
sunl quist.
S.A.E. continued the weekend the very next night with- a rousing
"Rustlers' Rustle." Daisy Mae costumes and burlap skirts of all types were

Sophomores have their turn to be
the class specially invited to the
Union Coke Bar, which will be held
from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. today,
in the small ballroom of the Union.
Besides all Sophomore men and
women, Phi Psi, Psi Upsilon, and
Theta Xi have special invitations.
Personal invitations' have been sent
to 35 women on campus, and to
Jeanne Crump and her staff, on
The Daily.
Virginia Morse, '43, will be hostess
at this week's Coke Bar, which will
be the last to be given before/spring
vacation. Admission charge for men
will be 10 cents, while all women
will be considered guests of the Union,
and admitted free of charge. There
will be a group of specially delegated
men waiting at the top of the stairs
to escort to the ballroom those women
who come to the affair without dates,
as they are encouraged to do.

More Students Study Sani
f During European War Crises


Spanish departments in colleges
and high schools throughout the na-
tion are preparing today for an ex-
pected wartime boom in the study of1
the Spanish language.
Pointing out the increased pop-
ularity of Spanish following Ameri-
ca's last two foreign entanglements
- the Spanish-American War in
1898 and the first World War - Prof.'
Charles P. Wager of the University
1 Romance Language department ex-
pressed his belief that, before the
ending of the present world conflict,
more American students will study'
Spanish than at any other one time
in the country's education history.
The first indication of another]
boom came last year when class at-,
tendance here jumped from 690 to
911 students, Wagner said, and if the
gradual increase which began in 1934
continues at the same rate, enroll-j
ment should reach a new maximum
next year.

Frescos Are Presented
Early Spanish frescos are effective-
presented in the reconstruction
a part of a tiny 13th century
apel. One enters a small dark
om with high vaults that has been
ilt within the museum to show'
e fantastically shaped and colored
escos of the lower wall that were
ought from Spain. They were
tually found in such a chapel
hich is 701 years old.
Interesting are a series of six pic-
res by Gaya that show a fight be-
een the bandit Margato and the
onk purser, Fray Pedro. It fore-
adows the modern movie, even to
anging the angle of each pitture to
ry backgrounds. One of he 'many
intings by Velasquez of the little
anish princess, Margaret, are in-
uded here as is his magnificent St.
mon which he did when he was
years of age.
El Greco was the transition to
e Renaissance, and his entirely per-
nal forms and colors are adequate-
displayed. It was one of his works,
e detail of Christ with the Cross,
hich was in a place of honor in the
rst gallery, having been placed
ere because it was voted picture of
