Senior Society To

Present Jingling jives' Dec.

Dance To Have
Miller's Band
Ballroom Will Be Transformed
Into Frosty Outdoor Scene;
Bell, Note Favors To Be Given
A frosty outdoor scene, "snow" re-
flecting colored lights from decorated
evergreens-this will be the setting
for "Jingling Jives," the annual As-
sembly come-across dance to be. pre-
sented by Senior Society from 9 p.m.
to 1 a.m., Dec. 12, in the League ball-
Tiny bells will be given out as fav-
ors to every girl, and *ie musical
notes frozen in the wintry scene will
have bell shaped bases. Herb Miller
and his band, dressed as a tribe of
plump Santas, will play from be-
neath a snow-decked canopy.
To Guess At Pennies
This is "girl's bid" dance, and a
chance for women with an eye to
Christmas bargains to y.ay off their
social indebtedness. Two jars of new
pennies, one each to be set up in the
window of Wahr's bookstore and at
Sophomore Cabaret, will give an op'.
portunity for two couples to win free
tickets by guessing the number most
nearly correct of all guesses submit-
ted. Announcement of the winners
will be made Dec. 9 following a week
of exhibition of the jars.
Tickets will be sold to women
through members of Senior Society',
but a special opportunity for ticket
purchase will be opened when 4 ticket
selling Santa Claus roams the campus
Dec. 8.
For five years the come-across
dance has been in the hands of a
committee chosen from Assembly. In
order to avoid the usual delay of pe-
titioning and interviewing for the
central committee positions, Senior
Society this year offered to take
charge of the dance.
To Feature "Jingle Bells"
Rosebud Scott, president of Senior
Society, is acting as general chair-
man of the dance. Assisting her are
Jean Krise, vice-president; Donna
Baisch, secretary, and Pearl Brown,
treasurer. Emilie Root is in charge
of decorations.
A special arrangement of "Jingle
Bells" with words written by Donna
laisch will be offered at the dance.
Herb Miller is also working on a
medley of Christmas carols.

of "Full House" has gone on a diet!
Opera director Bob Adams decreed 10
pounds off before opening night, Dec.
9. Bob says he was serious; Dick!
says he's taking him seriously.
So far two pounds have gone the'
way of all flesh. Dick calls it system-
atic reducing and here's the system:
he either eats half his breakfast or he
doesn't eat it at all if he happens to
have an 8 o'clock. No particular
breakfast-just whatever happens to
be served. "Sugar in my coffee? . . .
Certainly," says Dick. He claims he's
just working up to the stage of leav-
ing that out.
Glamour Vs. Lunch
For lunch, Dick eats half of what
he'd eat ordinarily, or he eats an en-
tire lunch one day, then skips the
noon meal entirely the next day. In
'fact he says he's been going without
lunch "quite frequently."
For dinner? Well here the secret'
of Dick's success is the Sig Ep house-

will be posted Dec. 8, and contestants
are reminded that any failure to show

a default.
