ON THE HOUSE
By NAN TAYLOR
The social calendar is "bustin' out all over" with a record number
of parties this weekend.
"Card sharks" will be on the loose tonight at Williams House.
Residents of the house and their dates will engage in a tournament
to test their skill at bridge, pinochle and other card games.
AEPI'S ARE NOT letting the sudden return of winter weather
bother them. They are going to have a picnic, complete with all the
trimings tomorrow night. As a concession to the elements of Nature,
however, they are holding the picnic indoors, and decorating the house
to give a picnic atmosphere, including "ants."
"KISS ME SAM" (a take-off on "Kiss Me Kate") will be one of
the main attractions at the Phi Sigma Delta's "Red Sox Slide." Slid-
ing through the door, couples will abandon their shoes for an evening
with the "red sox."
SHIP-WRECKED BETAS and their dates will suffer their plight
complete with proper atmosphere-a water-filled basement.
BLUE-JEANED and plaid-shirted couples will swing out in a rolick-
ing barn dance tomorrow night at the Chi Phi house and in Lloyd
House, West Quad.
"EAST SIDE, WEST SIDE, all around the town ... " ZBTs will
be transported to New York, where they will take in the sights and
.sounds of the big city.
THETA CHI COUPLES will get a chance to do some of those things
i;they have always wanted to do, but never had the nerve for, at the
fraternity "supressed desires" party.
GAY PARISIEN SPIRIT seems to have hit several houses this
Trigon's "Sorri6 de le pig allt" will be presented amid the back-
ground of the French quarter.
CHECKERED TABLECLOTHS and gay umbrellas will invite Phi
Rho Sigmas and their dates to enjoy the pleasures of a Paris cafe.

fraternity. Couples will drink his health in green punch in an Irish-

dates welcome the coming of "Spring."
CHARLIE CHAPLIN MOVIES, gambling games and record danc-
ing will provide entertainment at the Phi Psi "come in any costume
you want to" party.

"wild and wooly West."
BIRTHDAY CAKE, party hats and kiddie games will help Sigma
Chi couples celebrate the birthday of Tina-the fraternity's dog.

Experts predict a snowfall, but
professors, taking a look at the
decline in classroom attendance,
foretell the approach of spring.
Munching ice cream cones, stu-
dents will soon start making
tracks to campus, the favorite part
of which is better known as the
Arb, and picnics will .once again
be the social event of the day.
Crew cuts will soon be all the
vogue again, and white bucks
stand a chance of being exposed
to a bit of polish. This latter sug-
gestion refers to the weaker sex
also, for with the transition of
white bucks to female feet, the
men are being given a close race
for the honors in messy footwear.
Saddle shoes and loafers also
need facelifting once in a while,
and spring often brings stuents
the initiative to undertake this

will also soon be brought out of
the mothballs, especially the wet
weather gear when the Ann Ar-
bor spring downpours begin.

Both Aquamarine, Bloodstone
Hailed As March Birthstones
March is the month of the lion
and the lamb-and the aqua-
marine and the bloodstone.
With the coolness of its tone
and the suggestion of depth of
emotion, the aquamarine is well
chosen as the birthstone for
March, a month which marked
the birth of many great names,
ranging from famed scientists to
THE AQUAMARINE, a beryl
gem related to the emerald, is the
choice of many because of its un-
usual beauty. It has the depth
and tone of sea water, and like
the sea, it varies in the intensity
of its color.
It is a jewel which is becom-
ing to both blondes and brun-
ettes because of the sublety of
its color and the ease with which
it harmonizes with many color

ed with the blue-green beauty of

SOME HISTORIANS believe
that it was worn by the High
Priest of the Second Temple. Ac-
cording to "Vision of Piers the
Plowman," a poem written about

was miraculously protected from
the ravages of poison.

gets its name from an old leg-

Christ was crucified and some
of His blood fell on the stone
causing the red inclusions.
