Committee Members Mount Ladder of Success
GAUNT AND HAGGARD after#
two taxiog months of pre-
dance reparation, members of
the 1951 J-Hop Committee peer
wearily at a Daily cameraman
who caught them off-guard Fri-
day as they were nailing up some
last minute decorations.
It had been a gruelling period
for these people, some of whom;
stood on the verge of collapse as
the big weekend finally arrived.:
THEIR EXHAUSTION was both
physical and mental.
Their strength had been sapped'
by sweeping floors and lugging
ginger ale cases; their minds were
worn thin by the countless deci-
sions that were called for in such
an immense undertaking as the
gala J-Hop.
"Some persons seem to think
that all we do is sit back and
dish out contracts," sighed Joanf
Beeman, '52, decorations chair-t
man.
"If they only knew," she whis-
pered, wiggling her eyebrows sig-
nificantly. (Miss Beeman is at
the top of the picture, towering
above the lone fellow in the tat-
tered suitcoat. He is Don Downie,
'52, general chairman.)'
J-HOP IS A tremendously big
affair. Finance chairman Jack
Hamer, '52, revealed that this
year's dance was a $20,000 under-
taking.
(Hamer, grinning gleefully,
stands at the extreme right of
the photo. He confidedythat he
"hadn't had my hands on so
much money since the Hrink's
holdup." Standing rosily at his
side is music, chairman Carol'
Eagle, '52, who found that the
money could be spent quite **,
easily.) to turn it over to Administration by Funk, '52 (standing, center) well-deserved pre-dance cocktail

DailyEditer
Paul Brentlinger, city editor of
The Daily, told a Journalism lec-
ture group yesterday that the
problem of typographical errors
in the Daily has been "completely
solved."
brentlinger told the group that,
as far as the daily was concerned,
"etaoin shrdlu the glymph per
snoo has never gleep frannial cla-
por completely froo.
Brentlinger told the group that
the Daily "has now become a

in tHe best salons. (note to prin-
ter: One "o" in salon, please.

"Moreover," bren%1lnger told
the group, "I am sure that clorn

drew a laugh from the crowd wh

Early Blooms
Now Possible
With summer still a consider-
ablie way off, you can have many
of the earlier flowers and trees
bloom in your home by forcing
blossoms.
There arera number of bushes,
shrubs and bulbs which can be
made to flower profusely with
nothing more than a little care,
according to Prof. Hyman Blud-.
geon of the botany department.
Just sink the root (a six foot
one should be about right) into
a large tub containing a saline
solution. Then sprinkle the
thing with an accredited plant
food at ten minute intervals, in
the meantime striding briskly
about the tub chanting a druid
growing song.
It should bloom in about ten
days, Prof. Bludgeon pointed out,
unless it is placed in the tub on
Feb. 28, in which case all the petals
will fall off immediately. In tech-
nical terms, this is known as "de-
flowering."
