There were all sorts of gay little groups of girls with large bunches of
colorful shrubbery on their shoulders, all over campus on Sunday afternoon.
They were pledges. The fact that this strange species of woman was all
over campus gives the signal to those who know-whoever they are-that
the rushing season is over.
This is a pity. Not that we enjoyed the season-don't get us wrong.'
But the whole period offerel such unlimited possibilities for juicy column
material. And any time which does that-no matter how trying and nerve-
wracking it is to other people,-we feel is not to be idly tossed aside.
The Pledge Formal: It's Agony...
Nevertheless, it's gone. Ah, but chin-up-white-tie-for-dinner-carry-on-
old-thing, we whisper to ourself, remember that the pledge formal is yet
to come. And, gang, if you can survive a pledge formal
without biting your nails down to the second knuckles and
being carried away to the Laughing Academy, sticking
n straws in your hair,-then you can face any of Life's Little
Battles, and we'll give you a written guarantee on that.
Perhaps, we should give you a rough outline of the
accepted procedure in this strange social custom, just so
that you can brace yourself a trifle for the trial to come.
(It doesn't really matter whether we should or not; we5re
going to-it's something to write about.)
This is the way you go to a pledge formal, if you are
a female pledge. In the-first place, you will probably be new on campus,
and unless you have been lucky, the only men you have met have been
gretty frightful slabs of horror. But, if you have seen a few decent loop,
ing men around, and you say to yourself, ah, this is my chance to have
the good old sisterhood fix me up with something a little less scaly than
what I have so far met. You inform them of your wishes, and someone
says, trust me, kid, you're practically set.
You trust her. She calls up the next day with the announcement that
she has a real smoothie all set for you. You will say, is he tall and she will
say oh yes, he is tall and muscular and besides that, he is a divine dancer.
He will call you up the next day. At the sound of his voice you will think to
yourself, well, he may be tall and muscular, but it's a pity his voice isn't a
key lower than a boy soprano's. He'll ask you if you like daisies, and you'll
say no--or perhaps, yes, if you like weeds. IUn either case you'll get daisies.
The Dream Boy-Your Date.. .
You'll get dressed. You'll put on your highest heels, because he is tall.
You'll buzz down to meet him. He will look like a minor jockey, have a
head like a peanut, and should long ago have joined
some good troupe of midgets. You will have a very'
enjoyable evening-if you have remembered to bring
a healthy dose of vitriol with you to adminster to
either him or yourself.
If you are a male pledge, you will have already
started to look forward to the pledge formal and
wonder who in thunder you can take to it to impress
the brotherhood. You decide on a gal who is really
a queen back home and are already to ask her when
you remember: (a) Home is 650 miles away, and
there might be some difficulty in getting her here, \
or (b) she always has regarded you as a sort of human bacillus, and she
