on the University campus!
It takes less than very little to arouse the local party spirit. Look
at the Thank God Its Friday Club-do they need an elaboroate ex-
cuse to celebrate?
OR FOR THAT MATTER do the Tau Delta Phi's? Believe in
the "man's fest friend" school or thought, the Tau Delta Phi's will
celebrate the birthday of their dog, Landa Don Lattendurg tomorrow
evening. Landa (and perhaps the Tau Delts) will feel right at home
among doghouse decorations. While the guests dance to record
music Landa will chew upon the gifts which will be opened at pre-
cisely 10:30 in the evening.
At the Sigma Alpha Epsilon house, "Tin Pan Alley" has in-
spired a party tomorrow night. Dressed as song titles, couples
will enter the house and continue to the ballroom through a series
of large replicas of song sheets. Music by a combo will share
the attraction in the ballroom with sheet music and streamers
with notes attached decorating the walls.
Newberry women and Michigan House men will get together for
a "Jam session" with the music being supplied by the Michigan House
men. As yet the men have not revealed just where the music is com-
ing from but it is suspected that it will be a conglomeration of "local

SHOES WILL BE scarce at both the Theta Delta Chi and the

When the Theta Delts feet get tired, they will play such

will be strung up about the rooms for decorations.
Delta Chi's will hear the patter of stockinged feet to record music.
CHINATOWN, U.S.A. will be depicted at the Zeta Beta Tau house.
And what would a Chinese settlement be without chop suey? Play-
ing to the click of chop sticks as couples sit on the floor and eat chop
suey from collapsed card tables will be Earl Pearson. Lanterns and
other decorations peculiar to the Orient will hang from the ceilings
and walls.
Roulette wheels and 'dice will be rolling at the Delta Sigma Phi
