To Be Small,

When Santa arrived in town last weekend he unhitched his rein-
deer, took a glance through his ream of -invitations, put on his best bib
and tucker and proceeded to spread the holiday cheer; this weekend he
looks forward to much more of the same.
In fact, the men from Greene House, trying to make the old gent
feel more welcome, have planned to transport a part of the North
Pole to their dining room.
In one corner of Santa's home may be found the elves' workshop,
in another Mr. and Mrs. Claus' bed, and in still another Saint Nick's
study. On the wall in his study there will be a huge map on which he
has traced his course. The most prominent streamers will, of, course
be those leading to Ann Arbor and Greene House.
THE SIGMA CHIS have gone to a great deal of trouble to make
sure that Kris Kringle won't miss their house when he makes his
rounds. They plan to erect a chimney large enough for several Santas
to make an entree. "A miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer" will
also be found on their roof.
Within the Sig house, the men and their dates will be cele-
brating the holiday season at their annual Christmas formal.
Dick Peters and his orchestra have been imported from Ypsilanti
for the occasion.
Acacia will honor their pledges at aformal dinner-dance to be
held at the chapter house tomorrow night. Decorations will be in
keeping with the holiday and purpose of the affair. A huge replica of
their crest will be mounted above the outside doorway.
RAYON BABUSHKAS carrying the Acacia crest will be presented
to the women as favors. Mr. and Mrs. W. L. Christman and Mr. and
Mrs. H. P. Wagner will chaperone.
Doug Lent and his orchestra will play tonight at the Betsy
Barbour Christmas formal. The girls have transformed their
home into a "Winter Wonderland," which is what they are calling
their dance. Punch and Christmas cookies will be served for re-
Trigon's "Gambol Inn" will be the scene of their annual gam-
bling party to be held from 8:30 p.m. to midnight tomorrow. Each
couple will be presented with $150 (paper money) upon entering the
house. The couple holding the largest sum at the end of the evening
will be presented with a prize.
DANCING WILL BE provided for those who lose interest, or too
much money. The entire house will be decorated along the casino line.
Several of the brothers will turn coupier for the evening, don tuxedos,
and sound-off with some genuine barking.
Each guest at the AKKs Christmas party has been requested
to bring a small gift. These will be separated into piles and dis-
tributed later in the evening.
Members of Triangle have planned a tree decorating party to be
held tonight from 9 p.m. to midnight. Santa will meet each guest at
the door with two sacks, one to hold the ladies' gifts for the gentle-
men and the other to hold vice-versa. Various groups have planned
charades to be presented during the evening.
TONIGHT MARTHA COOK will hold their annual semi-formal
Christmas dance, to be called "Frost Fantasy" this year. Cliff Hoff is
the maestro they have chosen for the affair.
Tomorrow evening the Betas will honor their pledges at a
formal dance to be held the house. Preceding the dance guests
will partake of dinner at the Allenel Hotel. Doug Lent will set the
dancing mood.
Mary Markley girls have also planned a tree decorating party
for this weekend. Games and caroling will take up a major part of
their evening, after which some hot cocoa and cookies, which the
girls have planned to serve, will be greatly appreciated.
THE PHI PSIS have also planned their pledge formal for tomor-
row night. The dinner and dance will both be held at the house. Dec-
orations will change their abode into a glorious winter wonderland.
Johnny Harberd and orchestra will provide music for the affair.
The "Christmas formal" spirit has also found its way into
the ATO house. Their dance is to be held from 9 p.m. to mid-
night tomorrow. Mack Ferguson's orchestra will do the honors.
The DGs Christmas formal also falls into the swing of events
tonight from 9 p.m. to midnight. Their choice of orchestra is Johnny
Mystery reigns at the Phi Kappa Sigma house, at least so far as
anyone but the committee knowing what the decorations or refresh-
ments will. be at their pledge formal tonight. The band is no secret,
however; they have chosen Dick Johnson.

Union Formal
will Feature
Beanstalk Tale
"Jack in the Beanstalk" is the
theme of the annual Union
Christmas Formal to be held from
9 p.m. to midnight today in the
Rainbow Room of the Union.
Novel decorations have been
planned to carry out the theme.
A beanstalk, which the legendary
Jack used to climb to the Giant's
castle, will start on the first floor
and continue up to the ballroom.
The doorway leading to the
dance floor will be transformed
into the entrance of a castle. The
ballroom itself will represent a
medieval banquet hall with sym-
bolic caricatures at both ends.
A huge, grotesque giant's head
will be placed over the bandstand
with its shoulders and arms
hanging down the side. The eyes
of the giant will light up to show
his merriment on such a gala oc-
