List Year's
Best Films
(EDITOR'S NOTE: In accordance
with its yearly custom, The Daily
presenti its selection o the year's 9
best films.)
By CYRIL CELLULOID
1. Hewig Zegan's masterful direc-
tion and the clever camera work
of Ching Ching Kong made Off
the Docks the year's most memor-
able film experience. Who can for-
get Garlan Brunch beating Mae
Hopticar with the celery stick, the
fight between the longshoremen
and the shortshoremen.
2. Ginny Fearland made a n
amazing comeback in A Diver Is
Born the tragic tale of two deep-
sea, underwater fishermen in love.
When he comes up, she goes down.
3. Japan's Door to Evil gave us
the year's best color photography.
Everything was done in soft pink;
the results was a screen in which
it was impossible to distinguish in-
dividual players from the back-
ground, but color conveyed the
entire mood.
5. The best comedy was Epic
Studios' Hhhhhhhggggggggg, the
hilarious story of a bride's wed-
ding night.

Under the House

By ROLANDA VANDERBEER
With the campus in a state of high excitement and frenzied last-
minute preparation for the J-Hop weekend, all-night orgies and late
breakfasts were all the rage.
While no fraternities planned activities for the earlier part of
Friday evening, at 3:30 a.m. Saturday morning the fun began.
Their house elaborately decorated to resemble the interior of a
Gohtic cathedral the Rho Kepsa Ex house was the host to University
officials Harlan H. Catcher and Nevera Quakin. With the atmosphere
somberand church-like, the Reeks had one o fthe quietest of the
fests, with only two raids from local police and one phone call from
a residence nearby.
The painstakingly carved pillars borrowed from the front yard
of the Architecture building and several busts from the Law Library
added an authentic touch to the decor. Pews obligingly lent by one
of the local churches provided ample space for the coeds and their
dates to sit and talk over the events o fthe evening, but one Reek
complained, "Those hard benches aren't too comfortable."
Borrowing their theme from the J-Hop itself, the Blanka Blanka
Blanka's called their party "Soused Pacific." Coeds dressed in grass
skirts, mostly, and salt from old pretzel boxes provided the White
sands of Bali H'ai. Plants from the lobby of Mason Hall looked like
real palm trees to the Tri-Blanks and their guests after the orgy
was well under way. Jungle juice was the drink most in demand, hav-
ing been mixed with alcohol obtained gradually over last semester
by an enterprising and fore-sighted Med student
The Rolla Paira Dise members went all-out for decorations and
atmosphere. Importing genuine apes and cobras from the wilds of
Ypsilanti, they called their gath--
ering "Tarzan Slept Here." The
walls of the house were entirely
covered with dark green, luxuriant
ivy plants to lend a jungle-like
touch to the rooms. Drinks of fer-
mented papaya juice were served
in actual coconut shells. The high-
light of the evening came when
the Roll's chose their queen. Joan
Simian, the girl who most resem-
bled an ape, reigned over the pro-
ceedings wearing a wreath of um-
gawa leaves. USED
