Brings Social Events to Halt
The approach of final examina
tions will bring campus social af-i
fairs to a virtual standstill this
week-end, when University regula- l

for the first closed week-end of

Chi fashion dance Saturday night.
Living groups, however, are
planning more than the usual
number of exchange dinners, des
sert dances, and faculty dinners
during the week, as a final gesture
