What a weekend, what a weekend!!! Do you feel like we do now that
you suddenly have a week of real STUDYING before you? Exams next
week, remember? Have you lost your pep? Are you sluggish, run down ...?
Well, try Carter's Little Liver Pills . .. (adv.) This leads up to the fact that
everybody started celebrating early and amost forgot to stop this weekend.
After all, Summer Session is nearly over, and, well, can we blame all the
teachers what have to go back and teach come next year and all the stu-
dents what have to try (I just said try) to learn next year for attempting
to make the best of what's left of the summer . . . Only one more weekend
to play!!!! And don't you forget it!

the ones who have classes only on Mon., Tues., Wed. and
Thurs. nights! We saw Mary Peirsol and Dex Green enjoy-
ing the benefits of the Pretzel Bell, also seen were Bill Under-
down, Pete Olmstead, and Tom Peirsol. Came Friday night
and we started out with the play which was very swell ...
In the intermission we saw Johnny Moser wandering around
looking for somebody . . . Dave Spengler was talking over
the play with two charming young ladies ... .
Sing And Sway.
Later Friday night the League went wild with a dance contest. All the
jitterbugs from all around Washteriaw County came. The winnahs of the
smooth dancing section were John Clifford and sister, Cathleen. John, by
the way., learned to dance at the League dancing classes during his Freshman
jiving section Helen Corman and tddie Stoffer came in first ... real rhythm.
Watching the proceedings were Lillian Schoor, June
McKee, Ted Mattsen, Dave Rice, Bill Hoot, and Sandy

ington, Bernie Freidman, Steve Irving and Bob Levin t
all making merry . . . also seen-Johnny Schwarzwalder
and Mary Jordan. And continuing the merry-making in
Detroit at the Wonder Bar were Jane Carey Fristo and

League with the usual dancing. Ann Livingston, Gerry

Babe Young (sliding), New York Giants first sacker, had a busy
day in the first game of a doubleheader with the St. Louis Cards. Here
he is stealing second as Catcher Mickey Owen's peg to Joe Orengo
(jumping), Cardinal second baseman, is high. in addition to the steal,
Young hit two home runs to aid the Giants to a 5-4 decision.

side as the British prepare to face a German invasion, contrasts sharply
with the placid surroundings. Sheep and ducks move about them un-
