tee for the formal has planned a
large mural at the fireplace end

This will represent the three
patches of the ROTC, NROTC and

have crossed swords above it and

Stalin Visits Unique
Communists Party
We joined the Communist Party last night!
Lured by an ominous red, star stamped communique telling of
an evening of revelry behind the iron curtain at the Kappa Stigma
House, we decided upon a private purge of these obvious subversive
As we approached 806 Hill, clothed in red flannels so as not to be
suspected, a stealthy figure leaped from the bushes, slipped us match-
ing red babushkas and whispered, "Do you have a flaski?" "Yeski"
seemed the suitable reply and the iron curtain, strongly resembling
auto chains, was lifted, revealing a mystical red glow. "Comrades!"
screamed the Kappa Stigmas.

Wedding Gift
When puzzling over what to buy
that nice young couple for an an-

small copper flower-pot holders-

Duties of WAA Board Positions

To Be Explaine
The thirty positions open for
petitioning on WAA Board will be
explained at 5 p.m. today in the
Hussey Room of the League.
Board members from the Presi-
dent down will explain the duties
and experience pertinent to their
positions, and the processes of pe-
titioning for them.
The petitions, which are written
statements of qualifications and
plans for proposed WAA jobs, will
be due at 5 p.m. Friday, March 25
in the Undergrad office of the

tions and will hold interviews from
March 28 through 31. Coeds may

must be a junior or senior, aids the
president and takes over the social
functions of the board, while the
secretary takes minutes covering
everything. The treasurer keeps
records of club expenditures in
the WAA treasury.
The dormitory, league house
and sorority managers are all
responsible for notifying and
co-ordinating their respective
divisions in the intramural set-
up. In turn each manager takes
charge of an intramural tourna-
ment such as basketball, volley-
ball, and softball. The intra-
mural manager coordinates
these tournaments.
The general publicity, head
keeps the names up to date on the
club and on the intramural hon-
ors board which is posted in the
WAB, and keeps the campus
abreast of WAA activity through
posters, stunts and a variety of
publicity media. She also may
lend artistic talents to WAA social
Petitioning will be open also for
the many club managerships and
the prospective manager need not
be an expert in her chosen field.
Organization, leadership and abil-
ity to create club participation
and enthusiasm will be considered
highly. Women should bring eli-
gibility cards to the interview.
However, petitioners who have
valuable experience in a certain
activity should not hesitate to
state their qualifications on peti-
tions, which may- be obtained at
the Undergraduate Office of the
Pleated Skirts
The latest word from the fa-
shion world says that the suits
for spring will, at long last, fea-
ture shorter skirts with either
gores or pleats.

WE FELT A TOUCH OF cold steel at our ribs and glanced up to
see glowering Majordomo Fergusonavitch challenging and asking the
password. "Yeski" was again the cry, and we broke away heading down
into the "Siberian Salt Mines."
The worker's "party" was busily applying sledge hammer
and pickaxes to mammoth blocks of salt-(the decorations com-
mittee were putting in the last touches.) Stalin and Vishinsky
were supervising, aided by a hungry Siberian cow. Molotov was
conspicuously absent.
With the appearance of a kampus kopski agent the mines be-
came deserted, except for the cow who continued to enjoy her salt
block. The bovine, fully trained by the cominform, revealed nothing
of party policy to the persevering agent from the Office of Student
SEEKING REFUGE we found an "Open Door;" a policy unex-
pected at this gathering, and rushed into the arms of eight dancing
cossacks . . . After ten minutes of Kazatzka we halted our investiga-
tion for a few moments relaxation in the Library.
A time worn copy of "Rushin Rules" lay open on the table
revealing an introduction to prospective rushees, entitled, "Why
I Lean to the Left" by Bruce Lookwood. Next to this was a well-
thumbed issue of "Crime and Junishment" by Pat Hanneganski.
Shelved among the rare books collection were three dusty volumes:
"Lenin, Jr.," "Lenin, Sr." and "Lenin, Grad." and "Trotzky's
Mexican Memoirs" or "I Get a Pick Out of You." We wasted little
time on the pulp editions of "Ride the Pink Horski" and "Russian
Spy Deported at Evening," subtitled "Red Sails in the Sunset."
Out in the hall there arose an uproar. Lenin, in a red satin
casket, was being born aloft into the spacious interior of the "Wee
Kremlin" by eight strapping pledges. Was it the effect of the Vodka?
In the Wee Kremlin J. Parnell Merritsky and other Stigma offi-
cials were gathered around their television set listening to news
flashes from the Big Kremlin and through the window could be
seen a lonely pair (of sentinentals) keeping an eye on the satellites.
As midnight struck, our investigation complete, we decided that
these were, after all, only sociable socialists.
Basketball teams-All basketball games to be played this week
must be cancelled by tomorrow noon if players are unable to attend.
The schedule for this week is:
Monday at 5:10 p.m.--Alpha Xi Delta II vs. Mosher 1; Gamma
Phi Beta II vs. Newberry I.
Tuesday at 5:10 p.m.-Alpha Phi I vs. Jordan IV; Chi Omega II
