Tomorrow practically everyone
will be leaving Eugene to spend the
holiday? at home, and the football
men leave to battle the Huskies in
Seattle. Our campus will be de
serted except for a few who remain
to study. The past week-end was
the last open to house affairs, so
that from now until Christmas very
little will be done on the campus
in a social way.
Many informal house dances
were given Friday evening, but'of
highest importance in social affairs
of the week-end was the Sophomore
Informal, given Saturday evening
at the Armory.
Phases of college life which are
perhaps most firmly impressed on
the mind of a freshman were used
as the incentive for decorations at
the informal dance with which
freshmen of Kappa Sigma enter
tained the sophomores of that or
ganization Friday evening.
In the hall were miniature steps
to represent those at the library
and a duplicate of the Oregon seal
was printed on the floor. Other
bits of college life represented were
the senior bench, the freshman bon
fire and the “O” on Skinner’s
Mr. and Mrs. K. W. Earl, Capt.
and Mrs. F. E. Culin Jr., Capt. and
Mrs. F. M. Moore and Mr. and
Mrs. Jack Benefiel were patrons
« * *.
Chineso lanterns, (Japanese pic
tures, scrolls and incense gave tho
Phi Kappa Psi underclass dance,
Friday, an Oriental atmosphere. The
couples were met at the door by a
boy attired in Chinese clothes who
later assisted in serving refresh
ments. Perhaps the most effective
-bit of artistry was the altar, ar
ranged with many beautiful silks,
on which sat a large Buddah.
During the evening pleasing mu
sical numbers were given, in which
Fred West, Paul Peek, Alan Smith
and Ted Larson participated.
Patron and patronesses were Mrs.
W. F. G. Thacher and Mr. and Mrs.

Thursday afternoon from four
until six, members of Alpha Phi
honored Mrs. Henry Augustine with
a formal tea at the chapter house.
Receiving with Mrs. Augustine were
Mrs. Virginia Judy Esterly, Mrs.
W. F. G. Thacher and Miss Eliza
Autumn tones were bright in the
reception room, with baskets of
flowers attractively arranged. The
tea table was lovely with a huge
cluster of flowers in the center and
long candles in silver candle hold
ers at each end. Presiding at the
tea urns were Mrs. Frank Cham
bers, Mrs. Joseph Williams, Mrs.
Bruce Giffen and Mrs. William
Members of the chapter gave a
musical program of variation dur
ing the tea hours when about
eighty guests called.
About fifty couples enjoyed the
informal dance of Beta Theta Pi
on Friday evening at their house.
Palms, ferns and streamers in pink
and blue, colors of Beta, used in
the living room and hall gave them
a formal appearance, while the din
ing room was quite the opposite,
transformed into a barn. Bailed
hay, burlap sacks, stuffed /birds,
horseshoes and saddles were much
in evidence there.
Feature numbers, composed by
William Grantham, were given by
Frank Roher, vocalist, and William
Grantham, who played banjo.
Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Casey, Mr.
and Mrs.. Hugh Rosson, and Mr.
and Mrs. Walter Snyder were pat
rons and patronesses for the af

Overalls and aprons were the
costumes worn by those who par
ticipated in the “Hard Times”
dance at which the underclassmen
of Alpha Delta Pi were hostess
Friday evening at their house.
Lanterns were used for lights,
and pitchforks, alfalfa and hay
were in evidence around the house.
Miss Susan Elliott entertained those
present with a solo dance during
Mrs. Jennie Burrows and Mrs.
W. J. McKnight were patronesses.
Bacon buns, coffee and doughnuts
were served late in the evening.
Upperclassmen of Phi Delta
Theta were hosts for a formal din
ner dance Friday from 6:30 until
10:30 at their house. A number of
floor lamps cast a dim glow over
the rooms and lovely shades of
chrysanthemums in baskets gave a
