Although Bowery Ball and Panhel's "Mood Indigo" hold the
center of the social spotlight this weekend, a goodly number of houses
will venture forth with parties of their own.
Tonight another Sadie Hawkin's Day eve will be commemorated,'
a-la-SAE. Charmin' Daisy Maes and handsome Li'l Abners will gather
in the hay loft-alias the living room-for the celebration. Kickapoo
joy-juice will be served as inspiration throughout the evening.
SAE pledges are slated to enact the history of Sadie Hawkin's Day.f

THETA DELTS will run rampant at their final Football Fling
tomorrow evening. Their dining room will be transformed into a
dancing hall, overflowing with gridiron atmosphere. Couples will find
it necessary to "plow" their way through a giant doorway to reach
the dance floor.
The members of Sigma Chi have planned a formal dinner-
dance in honor of their pledges to be held tomorrow evening. The
pledges' dates will be presented with white rose corsages-the white
rose being the fraternity flower. Miniature paddles will be given as
As is the tradition, the latest Sig initiates will plan the festive
decorations, and consequently they will remain secret until tomorrow
night. Del Elliot and orchestra will provide mood music for the
MARTHA COOK COEDS will square-dance to the tune of "Lady
Round the Lady" et al from 8:30 p.m. to midnight tonight. Dave
Palmer will do the calling. For those who prefer a more sophisticated
style, there will be a jukebox to provide intermission music. Another
special feature will be a floorshow put on by some of the coeds. Lots of
refreshments in the form of cider and doughnuts have been promised.
The Acacia "Platter Palace" will feature a disc jockey program
tomorrow night. The men have been working all semester to get
posters of well-known bandleaders from local record shops to
give the decorations that authentic touch. The couples will have
a chance to hear their favorite platters, dance and enjoy the

tomorrow night, someone is not being -murdered-it's the Chi Psi

HOTEL "ROYAL ZETE" will be the theme&of the Zeta Psi party
tomorrow night. Cliff Hoff and his orchestra will provide the musical
background. Joe Dean, who performed the feat of stilt-walking at
the Navy game, and the famed "Zete" Quartet, will be on hand for
Smith's Barn will be the scene of the Phi Delt partying
tonight. The barn is the "real thing" even to the extent of chick-
ens cackling at the door. It has gone slightly modern in one
corner of the room where a juke box has been installed. Several
buses will transport couples to and fro.
THE BOWERY WILL BE in the limelight tomorrow night at the
Theta Chi tavern. Checkered tablecloths and candlelight will proceed
to set the proper mood. A harmonious background will be set by
Johnny Harberd and his orchestra. Alumni traveling to see the last
home game of the year will be the honored guests.

PRESCOTT HOUSE MEN and their dates will don jeans and
take off in buses at 5:30 p.m. tomorrow for a party at the Fresh
Air Camp. After a-dinner of hot dogs ahd all the trimmings, square-
dancing has been planned.
The Pi Lams will indulge in one of the season's most popular
pastimes tonight when they and their dates go hayriding. Later
in the opening barn dancing will be featured in their elaborately
decorated living room. Straw will replace the usual seating
arrangements. Lanterns suspended from wagon wheels will
provide the lighting.
The Sig Eps will honor their pledges at a formal dinner-dance
tonight. The pledges also have the honor of planning decorations
for the affair, and with the honor being all theirs, we outsiders, activeE
included, can only guess at what is in store.
Bart-the-bard-Rodgers and his wandering minstrels will do
the musical honors. A refreshing and strangely Arabian beverage
is now being concocted and will be served to the guests later this
evening. When one of the actives was khaki-clad and sojourning in
Arabia he picked up the recipe. Here's fair warning: it contains beet
