Descending upon Ann Arbor's
campus last night and Wednesday
night were many groups of stu-
dent carolers.
Early retirers were reawakened
by strains from favorite carols
being sung under the windows of
dormitories and other housing
units throughout the campus.
* * e
MANY groups took advantage
of the 11:30rp.m. permission on the
two nights to combine, forces in
Sometimes occupants of the
houses being entertained by the
carols would join in with the
caroling group. Santa Claus,
paying a visit at the time at a
Christmas party, came out in
his regalia to join in the sing
at one house.
The hospitals are never forgot-
ten during this season. Carolers
from the Michigan Christian Fel-
lowshipwere admitted to Univer-
sity Hospital Wednesday night
and helped to bring a touch of
Christmas to the patients on all

SOLOISTS were often chosen
to help with the songs while the
"chorus" hummed in the back-
Since men could be in wom-
en's residences until 11:30 p.m.
on the two nights, tired carolers
trouped back to many of the
houses for refresments. Hot
coffee and cocoa were favored
drinks and popcorn balls, ap-
ples, and Christmas cake helped
to restore energy.
Wednesday night Beta Theta
Pi combined with the Delta Delta
Delta's in a caroling party.
* * *
Hispanica, and Deutscher Verein
held a party Wednesday night
also with entertainment in a Rus-
sian style to round out the in-
ternational flavor. Refreshments
were served and then the first
two groups went to sing their
songs in French and Spanish.
Since the members of Deutscher
Veein had celebrated for the hol-
idays the previous evening, they
remained behind.
The women of Newberry and
the men from Gomberg House
found that they weren't too
tired to return to sing around
Newberry's piano and be enter-
tained by one of the cast from
Union Opera.

groups to have caroling parties

fice of the Dean of Women.
