"Heavenly Days" is centered about
college life and that there will be
many interesting dance numbers
including a Can-Can number.

four years ago by combined As-

THE CLASS OF '52 was the first
to hold a Frosh Weekend and they
originated the idea of having two
individual dances and floor shows
and for this purpose the women

Each team strives to outdo the

go ahead and decorate their part
in keeping wtih their theme.

copped first honors for the first
time in Frosh Weekend's history.
Their mwinning theme was "Make
Mine Moccasins" with members
becoming Indians of the Micha-
gauma tribe.

The year before, 1950, the Blue
team was victorious with "Watch
the Birdie" while the Maize team
