Sawyer, will be Tommy Snyder, '43,

membership dance. Every Union
member is invited.
This is the last major social func-

good cause which isn't defense-so

Petites Pommes de Terre
Local stories which most dominated the pages of The Daily last week
were the Hobo Hop with its smooth publicity campaign and Tom Thumb
and his smooth articles on songs as inspired by war-time feeling. Both
were quite smooth, except that both the publicity campaign designers and
Tom Thumb decided that they would beat their subjects into submission
by the rote method of presentation.
The Beards Present . .
Many of the more virile-looking males had raised a rousing crop of ex-
tended five-o'clock-shadow, an impulse which they mostly regretted later
.~ if - because it brought back, rather generally, the old
Erhily Post rule of dancing partners staying a Web-
- ster's Dictionary distance away-and not the pocket
size. John Erlewine, who is most noted, perhaps, as
being the exact antithesis of. a 'Seltzer' barn dancer
was, in spirit at least, the most radical person there.
He ,)eat down his inhibitions to the extent of leaving
off his tie for the evening. Just to round off this
/ / ' paragraph, you may report to your excited friends
that he was present with Sue Springer.
Others of the ragged throng were Audrey McLaughlin and Dick Gau-
thier, Bobby Schreck and Royce McKinley, Vickie Mason and Don Folkman,
Hope Tappe and Joe McHale, Mary Tralfa and Ross Levin, Marcia Nelson
and Stan Summers, and Nancy Upson and Jack Henderson.
Outside of the fact that the last scene was a dirty trick on the whole
audience because who of us hasn't a deep-ingrained longing to really clutter
up a room with a bit of Babylonian revelry and who of us hasn't yearned for
a Bacchanale of the calibre exhibited on the stage of the Lydia Mendelssohn
'Theatre last week, "George Washington Slept Here" was a plen-ty successful
comedy. Our favorite bit: Veitch Purdom saying to the kid, Raymond-who
is the type that makes strong men run for cover-"I just can't believe that
you're my sister's child." To which the kid answers with commendable
scepticism, "Who knows?"
Not that they need any additional seal of approval, but just the same,
may we add that Veitch was plenty' sharp in the role of the harassed wife
.and that old Bob, the Reviewer, as we affec-
tionately call him, is slightly full of the old.
guff when he says that Altman wasn't good in
his role. What we're getting at is, he was.
Easy Payments . .
A clothing store in Detroit which has got-
ten its publicity not for the quality of its clothes
but for its advertisement involving someone's ,
struggle with a few boxes, has, we recently dis-
covered, entirely undeservedly acquired its
companion reputation for-shall we put it delicately?-extreme suit models.
The reason is this: There's a store directly across the street from the first-
mentioned establishment that features a thing which they call the Thun-
derbolt. You might call it a suit. And then again you might call it a regret-
table occurrence. The coat has a fly front, egad, and the sleeves are sort of
pleated in huge folds at the shoulder. That's not all, though; the suit also
has trousers, appropriately enough, and they are titled "Swing Rompers"-
Honest! The lines below the caption which announces their title read, "30-
inch knee-15-inch cuff-Slightly exaggerated peg."
All this talk about the suit is not purely for doubtful entertainment
purposes, either. It's instructional-to the Betas. We understand that they're
the lads who know what's up and coming in the clothes field.
