color collie, however, seem none
the worse for their harrowing ex-
periences at the local dog pound.
One of the KNs, instructed to
board the dogs at a local veter-
inarian's for the midsemester
vacation, put the dogs in a taxi
and gave the driver the vet's
address. Unfortunately, enroute
to the veterinarian's, the driv-
er forgot both name and ad-
dress and on returning to the
KN house found that everyone
had left for the midsemester
Harrassed and exasperated by
the two KN mascots who were

steadily destroying the back seat
of his cab, the driver left the two
dogs at the Humane Society.
MEANWHILE, the veterinarian
phoned one of the members in
Detroit asking the whereabouts
of the dogs. Bewildered by their
puzzling disappearance, the KN
explained that 'he had placed the
dogs in a taxi and had given the
driver the vet's address.
Finally, after countless tele-
phone calls and tours of Ann Ar-
bor, the dogs were located at the
pound. The Humane Society re-
ported that many people had
wanted to adopt' the dogs, but a
rule prohibiting the sale of lost
dogs until five days after their
arrival at the pound saved the
KNs' mascots.
All the fraternity men were
celebrating the return of their
beloved pooches today, but Kap-
pa and George ignored all the
joyful confusion and slipped qui-
etly out to visit friends of their
own species.

language houses will definitely be
set up for the summer session,

all their meals at the residences.
Emphasis will be placed on so-

A "DIRECTRESS" will be in

charge of linguistic affairs at
both houses. The program is
jointly sponsored by the director
of the Summer Session, the lan-
guage departments, and the Dean
of Women.
Last summer, for the first
time since the war, a joint

Any woman who has had train-
