Deah Diary.....
Finally Ann Arbor has returned to the groove and last week-end was
the first time things got hot here. Maybe the weather had something to do
with it Who knows? Really, tho, there was plenty doing and so I've got a
lotta things, both black and white, to jot down in my traditional little red
Stuff began to move all the way back to Wednesday when Tad called'
and conscripted me to go to the Maj with him. Golly, the place was mobbed
with stags, all with morose faces. If that's what the army men are going tod
look like, I'll be darned if I'll play nurse to them as I'd planned. They can
get sick all by themselves. Thursday I trotted to the PACI T-dance at the
League-mostly just to see who was there. Saw Phyllis Gardiner introducing
herself to Bob Hodgeson and Carol Forsyth strolling .out with Harry Aligon.
Incidentally, deah diary, who do you think of yours truly dating one of those
cute freshman men? They sure are nice . .. O. K. I'll be my age but if one
of them asks me, maybe I'll change my nind.
Friday Started With A Bang.
Friday nite Tad and I started with a bang at the Union. Oodles and I
oodles of people were there and so I waltzed to Sawyer
with a pad and pencil so I'd remember to tell you who
all was there. Made me feel awful important to haye
', people stare as tho I were a REAL reporter. Mait Comb
* and Martha Option waved as they whizzed by. Bunny
.. Norris was there with her track man, Don Canham, and
Arlene Ross and George Castle were looking pretty soulful
I aboutthe whole thing, departing early for the mysterious
" western direction of town which it's Daily style not to
/ mention. Another unmentionable-who was the blond
that Ye Sports Ed was seen with?
Dashed to the Pi Lamnbda house where alums were all over, even-hanging
from the chandeliers-Rita Goldstein and Jerry Schneider were blissfully
dancing, unaware of even me. Bud Gins, Cyril Hawkins, Mike Kane andt
Elaine Grambacker were having fun and asked us to join but Tad wasj
adamant in wanting to go over to the League to say hello to Jack SullivanI
and Peg Duffey, whom he had promised to meet at the Newman Club dance.
When we got there, things were in hightime (nasty pun, eh what?) and so
Joanne Bouchard and Wade Flaherty and Bob Ellis and Kay McDermott
showed us around.
Was almost curfew but Tad and I did run in at the S.A.E. house to see
the alum shindig. Kay Hood was giggling away with Jay McDowell. Frank
May and Martha Lady left with us but we had to flee for the Hill so I
wouldn't be late.
Satdy slept until noon and what a day! To go or not to go, that was the
question. But not for long. Tad, the dog, simply called for me all wrapped
up like a cocoon. Honestly, he simply takes me too much for granted, don't
you think? After the formal I think I'll break up. Art Dardan, Marian Mann,
Dotty Dunlap and Bill Loud sat next to us at the game. It was amazing after
the first hour, we didn't even mind the rain. Don't think Harmon did either,
but I forgot to ask him.

Came nitetime, came Tad. First on our lists of the rounds was the
Alpha Kappa Psi dinner dance at the League. Sat withE
Ken Bailey and Ruth Barry. Exchanged the first dance
and said adieu. Sigma Chi boys had asked us to drop in on,, .
them and Reggie Williams and Alan Siebert met us at
the door, and very cordial they were. Stayed awhile and
then dragged my man to see the sailors at the Lamba Chi's ti
Navy dance-cute stuff. Barbara Rogers, Larry Handren,- I
Dru Ransom and Damon Woods were among those amus-
ing the alums. Marj Ashley and Vincent Gogtschalk added
their bit and we sailed out of there in a gale of laughter.
Tripped to the Union and met Evelyn Graham, John
Erlewine in the tap room. Gloria Brugaletta, Joe Dart,
Gloria McVittie and Tom Cheadle were busy doing a victory dance and
didn't even see us. So we left. I certainly am filling up your pages but there's
still more.. . . Merely peeked in the windows of Sigma Nu but saw Sally
Cory and Bill Harrison doing it up right. Shirley Kolbe and Dick Meinke
were watching. Met Lucille Woodworth, Paul Smith, Eleanor Hanavan
and Dave Thompson on their way to A. T. O.'s party. Put a finis to the day
at the Phi Delt abode where Betty Slee and Jim Gormson left with us but
Tad and I tactfully made the Hill alone.
Sunday nite Tad and I went to the Parrot for a coke and saw the fun-
niest, funniest thing. Lee Perry, that ole romeo, strolled in with a harem
of Gamma Phis. No less than five of them dangling from his arms. Inquiry
listed them as Pat Stelle, Jane Honey, Peg Ihling, Phoebe Power and Louise
Keatley. Lee? Why he didn't even notice me. Never mind, Tad said he
didn't need five. Michigan women. One certainly was enuf.
