Since its inaugural on May 9'
1935 when 3,500 people jamnibd the
steps of the General Library to
hear fraternity men vie for topj
vocal honors, the IFC Sing has
grown to become an annual event
on the University social calendar.
FOUR YEARS after its begin-
ning, the Sing attracted 33 frater-
nities to its preliminaries; 16 hous-
es emerged to compete in the fin-
als before 3,000 students, with the
first winner being Theta Delta Chi.
The Sing was postponed for
the duration of the last war, but
it was revived in 1946. It was not
until 1949, because of unpredict-
able spring weather, that the
event was held in Hill Auditor-
The following year Sigma Phi!
Epsilon became the first "double"
winner in the Sing's history. Delta
Tau Delta duplicated this feat by
achieving top honors in 1951-52.

sung by Beta Theta Pi, received the
first place trophy last year.
