Alpha Xi Delta Reigns Supreme
In Breakf east Bowl' Skirmish
By PAT BROWNSON
Women's touch football was at
its most hilarious Sunday morn-
ing before a crowd of more than
fifty persons in Burns Park when
Alpha Xi Delta downed Alpha Chi
Omega, 19-0, in what has been
referred to among other names
as the "Breakfast Bowl" game.
A large rooting section of fa-
thers, who were in town for the
traditional fathers' weekend of
both sororities, cheered loudly for
the teams, who met Sunday in the
first of an annual series of tilts.
h"Victorious Alpha Xi's are said to
have added a large -economy size
box of a popular breakfast cereal
to their trophy collection as they
bragged of an undefeated, untied
and unscored-against season.
(EDITOR'S NOTE: The Sun-
day morning game was the only
one played by the Alpha Xi's
Mary Lou Hook, star half-
back, led the Alpha Xi's to vic-
tory by scoring all three touch-
downs. One of the fathers re-
marked "If Bennie Oosterbann
sees Mary Lou's punting and
ball-carrying; Teninga is going
to be out of a job."
Alpha Chi's came prepared for
any emergencies by bringing
along a team physician, Dr. C. C.
Pills, attired in a white surgeon's
coat and'cap. Spys report he was
one of the Alpha Chi fathers.
AT ONE point of the game as
a player lay sprawled on the field,
Dr. Pills dashed to the rescue
with his large black suitcase, open-
ed the case and fumbled through
a bunch of clothes until he found
his first aid kit. In the meantime
another father rushed over with a
tire pump to administer artificial
Cheerleaders were active on
both sides, even to the point of
cheering the referees for pen-
alizing the other team. One
spectator expressed fear that
the team members might be
penalized for delaying the game
by powdering their noses in the
Star Alpha Chi halfback Marty
Armstrong who broke away for
some long runs, lost her determin-
ed expression only by screaming
whenever she was tackled.
ONE OF the ends when chided
by the coach for letting her op-
ponent get around her said "But
she's so big, she pushes me."
Alpha Chi uniforms were blue
jeans, plaid shirts and bandan-
as, while Alpha Xi's wore jeans,

Although the coaches, Chuck
Emery for Alpha Chi and Pete
Palmer for Alpha Xi, shouted in-
structions from the sidelines, they
resisted the impulse to dive for
loose balls or tackle any opposition
players who broke away.
Alpha Chi supporters attributed
their defeat to the fact that Al-
pha Xi's took an unfair advantage
of them by practicing before the
It is all right to use a cuticle
cream atop polish; it is all wrong
to put polish on a creamed sur-
face; it just won't stick. If you
will buff your nails before put-
ting on the lacquer, it will stay
smooth and even longer.
AN EXCITING MOMENT-There were many such thrills and
action-packed moments in the annual Pi Phi-Tri Delt "Powder
Bowl" Game, as the Pi Phi's edged out their opponents 8-6.

Several hundred people were on
hand Sunday afternoon to watch
the annual "Powder Bowl" game
between the Pi Beta Phi's and the
Tri-Delts, which ended in an 8 to 6
victory for the Pi Phi's.
This was the Pi Phi's third con-
secutive win in their games with
Delta Delta Delta and enabled
them to keep the 18 inch gold
trophy which has the scores of the
previous games engraved on it.
The Tri-Delts got off to a spir-
ited start by having a parade to
Burns Park before the game which
was led by the Sigma Phi Epsilon
band. Both the team and its sup-
porters cheered and sang all the
way down to the field.
PROMPTLY AT 3:30 p.m. the
game got under way with the Pi
Phi's receiving the kickoff. Before
the half-time whistle blew, the
Tri-Delts had twice held back their
opponents when they were in scor-
During the second quarter,
Nan Byrnes, the Tri-Delts right
guard, blocked a Pi Phi punt on
a fourth down so the Tri-Delts
took over with 5 yards to go for
a TD. Virginia Correll, Tri-
Delt fullback, then ran around
right end to make the fist
The Tri-Delts failed to make the
extra point and so the first half
ended with the score 6 to 0 and
the Pi Phi's on the losing end.
PI BETA PHI came through in
the third quarter with their first
touchdown, resulting from a 25
yard pass from Ellen VanWagoner,
fullback, to Janet Marshall, left
halfback, in the end-zone.
It looked as though the score
would remain tied up when the
Pi Phi kick was blocked for their
extra point. It wasn't until the
end of the fourth quarter that
the Tri-Delts fumbled in their
end-zone and the Pi Phis re-
covered for a 2 point safety. This
brought the score to Pi Phi 8,
Tri-Delt 6, which is the way it
Time-keepers and referees for
the "Powder Bowl" were Dick
Kempthorn, John Ghindia and
Reginauld Sauls. They issued sev-
eral off-sides, roughnesstand hold-
ing penalties, but on the whole
called it a "clean game."
DURING half-time the Sig Ep
band marched on to the field from
two opposite sides, and formed a
triangle, or Greek Delta, for the
Tri-Delts. They wore special
black coats and tin hats just to
keep it uniform.
After this the Pi Phi's and
their fathers (this was Father's
week-end at the Pi Phi house),
formed a huge circle on the field.
Meantime the teams were on
opposite corners of the field
getting some coaching hints
and a few drinks of water.

talked of nothing but coaching the
