Arabian Party
Takes Place
At Fraternity
Phi Rho Sigmas Add
Chapter to Old Tales
Of Oriental Splendor
A new chapter was added to the
old tales of the Arabian Nights by
the Phi Rho Sigmas Saturday
when they presented their party,
"1000 Second Night."
Amid oriental splendor, tur-
banned, bearded Arabs entered the
Phi Rho Arabia with their harems.
* * *
EACH MAN had to have at least
four dates who were to constitute
his four wives. Upon arrival these
women were escorted to the living
room "harem," where under the
guard of "eunuchs" they awaited
their master's beck and call.
The "harem" presented a pic-
ture out of the Arabian Nights,
complete with bright cushions,
stuffed peacocks and a fountain
shooting water into a small pool.
Across the sandy desert of the
hallway, where camels (on cig-
arette packages) lined the way, the
Arabs and their wives reached the
palmed splendor of the oasis.
Here they were served a "loaf of
bread and a jug of 'wine'." Pine-
apple punch and cocoanut ice
cream, as well as the desert fare of
dates and figs, gave refreshment
to the Arabs and their wives.
Russ Plimmer and his band pro-
vided the musical background for
the oriental scene.

plenty of powder with clean cot-

she dusts off excess for a velvety
