Annual Dance
Is Celebration,
Of Founding
Beta Theta Pi, Phi Delta Theta,
Sigma Chi Fraternities Give
Affair; Milton Ross Will Play
In commemoration and celebration
of their founding, Sigma Chi, Phi
Delta Theta and Beta Theta Pi will
present their annual Miami Triad
Dance from' 9:30 p.m. to midnight,
Saturday in the League' Ballroom.
Furnishing the music for the af-
fair, which is an outstanding event
on any campus where there are chap-
ters of the three fraternities, is Mil-t
ton Ross and his orchestra, who have
recently been engaged in Detroit.
Celebrates Founding
The Triad, which is a celebration
of the founding of the three fraterni-
ties at Miami University, was re-
vived in the last year or two after
a lapse of over 10 years, and it is
now an annual affair on this cam-
pus. Miami University is located at
Oxford, Ohio.
The committee in charge of ar-
.rangements for the affair is made up
of a representative from each of the
three houses. Buehl Morley, '43,
answers for Sigma Chi; William
Angst, '42E, for Beta Theta Pi; and
Bud Rudy, '44, is representative from
Phi Delta Theta.
Pins To Decorate
According to those who know, the
original purpose of the Triad dance
was to further cooperation and
friendship between the three frater-
nities while at Miami University.'
Decorations for this year's affair will
consist mainly of very large replicas
of each fraternity's pin, to be mount-
ed in the panels around the League
As is their custom, members of the
house will sing their fraternity songs
during intermission. Further details
concerning patrons and favors will be
announced later this week by the

Rummage Sale
Affair Will Be Given Saturday
For Bomber Scholarship Fund
Scroll, senior women's honor so-

which will be held from 9 a.m. to
3 p.m. Saturday at the Chamber of
Commerce Building, proceeds of
which will be given to the Bomber

This rummage sale is the first of
its kind held by Scroll and if it proves

"excess baggage."

daily this week.

If the temperature keeps on mov-
ing upward, you'll thank your lucky
stars for a short-sleeved cotton suit.
If it's cool in the morning when you
start to class, you can wear a blouse
under the jacket and remove it at
noon when it really begins to get hot.
The suit shown above is made of
bright striped pique and has the
long jacket which ought to make it
a favorite of women slightly on the
plutnpish side. Other suits come with
shorter jackets but the longer one is
the most popular.
The large pockets are also an add-
ed feature of this suit for they are
just the thing for carrying lipstick,
comb or cigarettes. The suit is espe-
cially a favorite because it serves
equally for three purposes-for class-
room wear, as a date dress and as a
golf outfit.
