orchestra, featuring their "Music
of Yesterday and Today." Barron,

sweetness, smoothness and show-
Realizing that there are many
by-gone favorites in the memo-

ing in the traditional Barron

On the .._q~d
It would seem that sunny, spring days have at last come Ann
Arbor way, though whether they remain or not seems a bit dubious, as
proved by the many alternate parties planned for this weekend.
The AK Psi spokesman seemed rather confused at the time of my
call, but amid frequent exclamations of, "I see!" and "Cheers!", he
managed to relate that the men had planned a picnic to be held to-
morrow down by the river. In case of rain they will hold the party at
the house, roasting weiners over an inside grill.
GREENE HOUSE plans to hold their annual spring picnic tomor-
row on the Island. They're hoping that the weather gods will be smiling
on their baseball, etc., but should they be of unruly temperament, the
men will hasten back to "greener" fields.
Tonight's plans center around formal dinners and open houses
preceding IFC Ball. Houses that will be serving dinner for mem-
bers and their dates are: Lambda Chi, Phi Kappa Psi, Pi Lambda
Phi, Theta Delta Chi, Chi Psi Lodge, and Sigma Nu.
Several of the fraternities will also have their annual Mother's Day
celebrations this weekend. The Lambda Chi's have also invited the fa-
thers to accompany their "better halves." Orchid corsages will be pre-
sented to the mothers preceding dinner and entertainment Sunday.
* * * *
SAE MOTHERS will join ranks tomorrow when they form what will
be known as the Minerva Club. Minerva is the SAE goddess. Following
these ceremonies sons will honor their mothers with group singing and
a humorous skit before the dinner hour.
Phi Psi mothers will also arrive for the weekend. Many of
them plan to attend May Festival following dinner at the house
tomorrow. In all cases the typically obedient sons will move out to
places unknown, making room for their mothers in the chapter
Kappa Nu's barn dance party will transform their living room into
a maize of hay-bales, lanterns, and corn cobs. Corn cob pipes will be
presented to all as favors in hopes of adding that "real" touch to the
evening. Square dancing will be the password, and one of the mem-
bers has promised to try his hand at calling. Chilled cider and sand-
wiches will be served.
* * * *
SALINE VALLEY Farms will be the scene of a barn dance and
picnic tomorrow for the Pi Lambda Phi's and their dates. In the after-
noon there will be games and boating, while later in the evening coup-
les will engage in regular dancing as well as square dancing. The fra-
ternity trio will provide entertainment.
THE "ODD BALL", so called because of the surprise element
involved, will be the mode of entertainment to be found at the
Trigon House tomorrow night. Shock-patients will be treated on
the scene.
Del Elliott and his orchestra will be on hand at the Phi Chi house
tomorrow to play for their annual spring formal. Decorations will fol-
low the seasonal patterns. Dinner is to be served at the chapter house
preceding the dance.
The AOPi's will play hostess to their mothers this weekend. Moms
will stay at the house while some of the members move out. On Sunday
everyone will go to church. After dinner at the house a musical pro-
gram complete with original skits will be staged.
A Mother's Day tea will fete Alpha Xi Delta mothers from 3 to 5
p.m. Sunday afternoon.
