Call it a back-to-nature movement, say that it is quite con-
tagious, whisper that everyone has gone wild with that "hay-fever,"
for this weekend over half of the parties run to the tune of hay
racks, moonlight, weiners and song.
By the light of tonight's moon, the Alpha Gams and their dates
will wend their way through the Ann Arbor countryside via horse
atmosphere, with Jack Frost mak-
ing his appearance in true fall
form. Design will be three di-
mensional to give a realistic ap-
pearance, according to Marge
Hehn, publicity chairman.

Every transfer is urged to call
her house, according to Mary
Stierer, president of Panhellenic.
The house will make arrangements
to invite the women over or will
meet the coed during the week.
The only way the sororities on
campus can contact transfers is
by the transfers themselves
calling the house. Every effort
has been made to find out who
the transfers are, but there are
no files available which will give
Through their houses, transfers

in social events such as exchange
dinners, parties and teas. They
may also sign up to play on sport's

the hay wagons were all being utilized, but the Sigma Chis are coming
forth with a French Apache party tonight. Striped basques, berets,
appropriate blouses and yards of jewelry will blossom out as couples
do their best to be in keeping with the theme.
JOHNNY HARBERD and his five piece 'orchestra will ride the
band stand in the Sigs Parisian Cafe, located in their basement.
Checkered table cloths and candle light will aid in producing this
Tomorrow evening the epidemic spreads rapidly as seven
other houses are slated for hay rides. Campus town becomes1
the cog, and seven different routes, the spokes of this rickety
merry-go-round. The men of Phi Sigma Kappa, Theta Xi,
Chi Phi, Phi Gamma Delta, Greene House, Delta Sigma Delta and
Adams house will be hosts to many blue-jeaned lassies.
Around this time of year pledge formals also hit the social
agenda. Members of ATO are honoring their neophytes at a dance
tomorrow evening. The setting is a modern nightclub-alias the
chapter house-with the pledges assuming the role of visiting Holly-
wood stars. Refreshment will come in the form of gingerale-trying
its utmost to have a champaigne appearance.
MEMBERS OF PHI IOTA ALPhA are holding their anniversary
dance from 8 n.m. to midnight tomorrow in the ass rmbly hall of
the Rackham Building. Decorations will carry through the anniver-
sary theme, but the main attraction will be a large birthday cake.
Small guitars made from cocoahut shells will be preseAted to each
couple as a remembrance of the affair. Invitations have been sent
to many, but all friends of Phi Iota Alpha are welcome.
Tomorrow afternoon the Betas have planned a listening
party and doggie roast to be held at their annex. Everyone is asked
to eat his fill in preparation for the Woodchopper's Ball to be
held at the chapter house in the evening. Does that mean that
couples are actually going to wield those axes?
In keeping with the Halloween season,- the women of Betsy
Barbour have planned a costume party for tomorrow evening. They
realize that the costume supply is limited, but urge all to make active
use of their imaginations. Dancers will find themselves wending
their way in and out of corn stalks and jack o' lanterns to the music
of the "best bands in the land."
CLIF HOFF, who now leads the old Tom McNall Band, will swing
his baton at the Delt pledge formal tomorrow evening. Preceding the
dance will be a formal dinner at the house for pledges and their
Decorations, in the form of balloons and streamers, emanate1
from the fraternity colors of purule, white and gold. Initiates will
no doubt be pleased with the programs. They are entitled "A
Pledge's Dream" and carry a picture showing an active assuming
"the position" while a pledge wields the paddle.
Kappa Sigma holds a conclave- tomorrow when they meet with
their Michigan State chapter at the Union. A discussion of fraternity'
policy will ensue and is to be followed by dinner at the Union.
The Kappa Sigs have made unique plans for Sunday afternoon
also. Last summer one of their Latin members initiated a new
type of picnic that was so successful it bears repeating. They call
it an "asado," and it is an affair which necessitates much preparation
for the roasting of a whole lamb. Charcoal potatoes go along with this
