An annual event in the Gamma
Phi Beta house, greatly anticipat-
ed by the hardworking kitchen
crew, is the "waiter's dinner,"
sometimes called the "change-
High point of the evening comes
with the crowning of the kitchen
queen. Etta Lubke, managing edi-
tor of the Ensian, recently copped
this coveted title which is awarded
by the kitchen crew.
Qualifications which Miss Lubke
had to pass were that she must
never come to lunch past 12:15
p.m., she must never put gum on
her coffee saucer or tray and she
must clean her plate at every meal.
Other requirements of the hon-
ored person are that she must
never leave her foot in the aisle
to trip unsuspecting waiters, she
must always remember to sign
guests in for meals and may nev-
er eat more than one dessert.
During this spectacle called a
"waiter's dinner," coeds don wait-
er jackets and aprons to take over
the jobs of the kitchen crew. The
"bus boys" also switch and eat in
the dining room with the rest of
The eight jobs filled are: three
waiters, two dishwashers, 'one sal-
ad maker, one pan washer and a
Since the event usually takes
place just before Christmas, gifts
are bought for everyone working
in the kitchen. In previous years
plaid belts and stocking hats knit-
ted by the coeds were bestowed up-
on the "lucky" kitchen chew.
After dinner, the men must read
aloud poems written to them by
the house members. This presen-
tation often reveals little-known
facts about kitchen crew members
which even they may not have
Jim Deland, salad mixer and
Dave Smith, general "cleaner-up-
per," presented their renditions of
Hawaiian melodies accompanying
themselves with ukuleles.
Working in the kitchen for the
past semester have been Schar-
mack,Spoelstra, Deland, Smith,
Paul Domine, pan scrubber; and
waiters Jim Knowles, Jim Beatty
and Cliff Michael.
Many, many hours later when
the kitchen is left "spic and span"
by the inexperienced crew, sighs of
relief from potscrubbing coeds can
be heard. Their last remark is
invariably: "I'm certainly glad this

Based on the "show within a
show" scheme, "Cock - a - Hoop"
deals with the adventures of 14
girls who decide to present a show.
The finale of their production
makes up the entire last act of
this year's JGP.
Entirely written and produced
by junior coeds, the colorful per-
formance will include a number of
different costumes and a series of
gay songs and dances.
Opens Before Seniors
The opening performance will
be presented before an audience
of senior women, as part of Sen-
ior Night activities.
All-campus performances will
be given at 8 p.m. Friday and Sat-
urday, March 18 and 19, with a
special matinee for sophomore co-
eds planned for 2:30 p.m. Satur-
Tickets, which go on sale be-
ginning Monday, are priced at 90
cents per person. All seats are re-
