President Praises Thomas In Swing Through Oklahoma

Summer school being summer school, with plenty of leisure time involved,
Ann Arborites here in vacation are seen in great droves about the city and
its environs, making merry in various ways.
Summer Session dances at the League are always well attended, and
Saturday night was no exception.
Patty Hughes, Betty Nixon. Loren Parlia-
ment, Ruth Roberts and Jack Welty
were all there listening to good friend
Charlie beat it out. Walt Scholes and
Magdelen Collins were there, too. Bud
Cornell and Ida Mae Stitt were among
the dancers on Friday.
People head for Westwood like des-
ert travelers to an oasis these hot sum-
mer nights, and Friday night there was
" a big birthday party in full swing out
there. It was Barry Ratliffe's natal day
and Mary Ellen Wheeler, Libby Hegge,
a Carolyn Coller, Al Lee, Jim Norris, Stan
Moore and Dave Ladd were in the bunch.
Also taking in Mr. Lyman's band that
night were Jean Holland and Ted and
Sue Bragg.

Enjoying a party at a local tap room in these parts one night over the
weekend were Frank Carstens, Pierce Barker, Martha Peters, Rollie Clem-
ehts and Ruth Steinke.
Sports too, have their attractions, it seems. Swimming at Whitmore last
week were Ruth Heald, Steve Filipiak and Lloyd Bertman. Wilfred Reiner,
Tom Nunn, Dick Snell and Art Woods were disporting themselves in a little
light and airy swimming and sailing at Portage Lake recently, and Eleanor'
Bryant, Bunty Bain and John McClean chose to t
get their exercise at Loch Alpine. Paul Pinkerton -
and Mary Bennett vent canoeing Sunday morn-
ihg, and Ken Biederman and Ginny Fulford

The city golf courses were busy places Saturday. Fee Menefee, Kayl
Steiner and George McCain were all engrossed in conquering the Municipal
Course in the afternoon. Down at one of Detroit's amusement parks a crowd
of people from Ann Arbor was spotted on the roller coaster. By actual countc
they went on the ride three times, and later confessed to have entertained
themselves at the Walled Lake roller coaster shortly before. Tough kids,
those. Bert Katzenmeyer was one of them, and Marvin Taylor was also
spotted wandering morosely among the crowd.

furnished the music for the dancing.
Mr. Parker played the fiddle at coun-
try dances many years ago.

to be fully attained."
"In line with these purposes," he
