Soph Satire To Be Presented
At Hill Auditorium on Friday

-Daily-Jack Bergstrom
FEMININE BALL CARRIER-It's Theta's bail and this coed is
going for extra yardage. It was all to no avail, however, as Kappa
Alpha Theta finally bowed in defeat to Collegiate Sorosis Saturday.
* * * *
Theta Team Bows to Sorosis;
Grid Classic Deadlock Broken



Members of the supposedly
weaker sex proved their strength
Saturday when Collegiate Sorosis
triumphed over Kappa Alpha
Theta with a six to zero score in
their annual feminine football
The game was held during the
half time of the Sigma Alpha Ep-
silon, Phi Delta Theta "Mudbowl"
In the years gone by, the game
has always remained at a score-
less tie, but the members of Soro-
sis broke the tradition with a
touchdown pass received by Bette
* * *
NO DOUBT there were a few
tragedies, such as broken finger-
nails, when the game got off to
a rousing start with Sorosis kick-
ing off. The Thetas took over the
ball and by a process of passing
and receiving, managed to gain a
first down.
The Thetas sent in their de-
fensive team when Sorosis re-
covered a' fumble, but members
of the male audience were forced
to swallow their laughs when the
Kappa Alpha Thetas intercepted
a Sorosis pass.
While the ambitious athletes
made the most of half time by
straightening their pigtails and
adjusting their strategy, the Phi
Delta Theta marching band took
over the field. Equipped with toy
horns and a drum made out of a
wastebasket, the Phi Delts para-
ded across the field preceded by
their duck.
. . .
the Mudbowl was then introduced
to the crowd and crowned by Bet-
ty Bridges.
Resuming the game, the Kap-
pa Alpha Thetas kicked off to
the Collegiate Sorosis, who then
proceeded to pass over the goal
line. The attempt was all in
vain, though, for the pass failed.
The referees then decided that
each team would play four downs
and the one gaining the most
yardage would be declared sthe
winner of the contest. When their
turn came, the Sorosis team pass-
ed over the goal line to Betty
Tornquist, and the scoreless streak
was broken.
* * *
MEMBERS OF both the defen-
sive and offensive teams for Colle-
giate Sorosis were: Sally McBride,
Jo Kleinert, Holly Herz, Mike
Sherwood, Sally Smith, Bette
Tornquist and Betty Bailey.
The list continues with: Mari-
lyn Wroboles, Carol Clifford,
Karlan Johnson, Ann Cleary,
Janet Bosworth, Alice Rich-
m o n d, Priscilla Ball, Carol
Briggs and Cynthia Bruce.
Concluding the roster are: Pa-
tricia Rich, Georgianna Taylor,
Phyllis Gundrum and Nancy Berg-

Barlow, Shelia Patterson and An-
ne Stuart.
The roster continues with: Pa-
mela Price, Dibby Ewing, Terry
Matheson, Diane Harris, Ann
Patterson, Susan Craig and
Mary Marsh.
The list concludes with: Bar-
bara Beukema, Florence Crotty,
Joanne Jones, Andy Londes, Jan-
ice Bailey and Nancy Washburn.
Captains of the respective teams
were Mike Sherwood, Collegiate
Sorosis, and Andy Londes, Kappa
Alpha Theta.
