holiday mood.

from 9 p.m. to midnight tomorrow
in the Union Ballroom for those
men andwomen who are unable

Chuck Hoefler will serve as the
'disk-jockey for the ;evening.

The pre-holiday affair is a date

in keeping with the informal at-
mosphere of the dance.

LINING UP at the corner of Hill
and Church Sts. at 8:30 p.m., the
eligible TKE bachelors led the
marriage-minded coeds in a furi-
ous but futile chase to the finish
line (living room of the TKE
house). Dogpatch males caught be-
fore reaching Bachelor's Bottle-
neck (the front door) lost their
freedom, and were firmly escorted
to the altar with the clang of wed-
ding cowbells ringing in their ears.
There, -the corn-fed couples
had their choice of Marryin'
Sam's extra-special $2 ceremony
or the economical $1 variety.
Following the classic November
race, Old Man Mose wandered
hither and yon with predictions of
things to come and offered some
real earthly humor while the
fiendish Scraggs terrorized the
Dogpatch residents with water-
guns and cap pistols.

patch Tromp (square dance) was

couples. Having turned the Teke

pleted the Sadie Hawkins Day
Available Jones set up his shop
in the hall and greeted Dogpatch
inhabitants with his usual offers,-
"Introduckshuns-Desireable Gals,
10c; Michigan coeds, 3c;" "I'll do
anything for a price;" "Will any-
body be sad"when "you go? I'll cry
at your funeral-50c"

sisted Hairless Joe and Lonesome
Polecat in the brewing of the Kick-'
a-poo Joy, Juice which sparked
with varnish, paint and dead rats.
Steam and circles of smoke poured
forth from the huge vat contain-
ing the brew.
In the midst of all the fanfare,
the Teke hillbilly quartet com-
posed of Bob Holm, John Karcis,
Ronald DeBona and Hal Campbell,
rendered a few mountain melodies.

Many a word of explanation has
been written concerning the vari-
ous phases of feminine activities
on campus, but now comes the
time for a revelation of the glory
that comes after the work-thet
