Nine House Groups Will Stage
Private Parties; New Semester
Marked By Social Upswing


The new semester is well on its
way, in the category of social activi-
ties, with quite a list of dances sched-
uled for today.
A radio dance will add festivity to
the Alpha Gamma Delta house from
9 p.m. to midnight. Mr. and Mrs.
Raymond Shoberg and Mr. and Mrs.
John Hayes will act as chaperons.

picked "Careless" to pin their white
hopes to.
Those women who showed promise
in the Monday and Tuesday try-outs
were asked back for a second audi-°
tion. Final decisions as to cast mem-
bers will probably be made by Sun-,
day. This leaves about four weeks
of actual work on the play, which
means plug, juniors!
