Despite the lurking shadow of swiftly approaching finals, a num-
ber of houses on campus are planning lavish spring formals this wek-
It's lilac time on Hermitage Rd. and the Phi Sigma Delta's wilt
{alute the "fairest of seasons" with their traditional spring formal to.
uuy. A weeaena of festivities will be launched with a dinner at the
Allenel Hotel followed by dancing at the house amid trellises covered
with Purple and white lilacs.
The theme will center around the old drinking song "Around Her
Leg She Wore a Purple Garter" and purple garters will figure promi-
nently in the decorations. Cliff Hoff and his orchestra will do the mu-
sical honors, while co-chairmen Bob Perrin and Marty Kohlenberg
promise some top-notch entertainment featuring talent from the
Gulantics Review.
An outing at Fritz Park tomorrow afternoon and an informal
dance to be presented by the pledges tomorrow night will complete
the biggest weekend of the semester for Phi Sigma Delta.
'IF WE DON'T FLY in some palms from Hawaii we may have to
borrow some fir trees from the Arb" was the comment of Fred Zim-
merman, Delta Tau Delta social chairman, while describing the deco-
ations for the house's annual spring formal tomorrow.
Straight from Hawaii will come a number of leis, commonly re-
ferred to by those who never knew what they were called as "those
wreath-like things you put around your neck."
In keeping with the Hawaiian theme of the dance, the living room
will be transformed into a tropical island with an LST landing in the
sand. It was also hinted that a few battle helmets and rifles may be
tossed around. Ken Norman and his band will provide the music.
CHI PHI'S WILL mark their 125th anniversary at their spring
formal tomorrow night. After a dinner at 7:30 p.m. at the Komo Kat-
ering Klub, dancing to the rhythm of Bart Rogers will be the order of
the evening.
FOLLOWING THEIR ENTRY into the house through a decom-
pression chamber, Zeta Psi party-goers will find themselves confront-
ing King Neptune's throne.
At the bottom of the sea (the living room, that is), those attend-
ing the Zeta Psi annual spring formal will dance to the music of
Dick Peters band under pilings of large logs suspended from the ceil-
ing. A rowboat with a fishing pole extending downward will also be
visible to those who turn their eyes toward the sky. Refreshmentsl
will be served downstairs inside a wrecked ship.
* * * *
THE SECTION OF STATE ST. across from Angell Hall will be the
scene of much activity tomorrow night, when Helen Newberry and
Betsy Barbour residences hold their spring formals.
"Through the Looking Glass", taken from Lewis Carroll's memo-k
rable book, will be the theme of Newberry's formal tomorrow. The door
of the living room will resemble a big picture frame. On the wall will
be gigantic figures of famous Alice in Wonderland characters. Charlesc
Meyers will be the music maestro for the evening.s
Guests must pass through the hallway transformed into a large
rabbit hole in order to enter the dining room, where they have all
been invited to attend the "Mad Tea Party."C
A pathway of Chinese lanterns will lead to Betsy Barbour Resi-
dence where their formal "Spring Frolic" will be going on at the same
Del Elliot's orchestra will occupy the bandstand which is to be
surrounded by a white picket fence graced with large paper flowers.
Large spring flowers and cut-outs of women in formals and large
picture hats will decorate the walls.
Also on Barbour's social calendar is an open house from 3 to 5
p.m. Sunday.

RAIN, RAIN, GO AWAY-"Come again some other day," says Rosemarie Schoetz, co-chairman
of Tennis Ball, as she leads her committee members in prayer for mercy from the rain-gods. The
coed with the sprayer, Jane Topper, is anticipating her job of spraying the courts with perfumed
DDT. Those "allahing" are, standing from left to right, Janice Olivier, James Root, William Peter-
son and Jane Topper. Kneeling on the tennis court are Lois Goldman, Larry Stein, Kathy Geigen-
mueller and Betty Cole.

Precautions Against Rain
Are MadefoTensBl


The Tennis Ball committee
wasn't superstititious when they
planned their all-campus outdoor
dance to be held from 9 p.m. to
midnight today on the Palmer
Field tennis courts, but precau-
tions have been made.
If the rains should come, the
WAA-Union sponsored dance will
be transplanted to Barbour Gym,

Following the service, Dr. Dewitt
C. Baldwin, program director of

odist missionary in Burma and

and national director of the Lisle
