-details concerning decorating,
programs, and fashion showings
occupied the attention of the dance
As the deadline drew near des
perate males threw frantic hints
at prospective dates and tried last
resort measures to get coy coeds
to pop the question. One group of
hopeless ones last night declared
they would stage a “brawl of their
own” in the event they were not
escorted onto the maple floor of
the Igloo Saturday night.
Meanwhile the committee went
on with its groundwork, announc
ing that programs would be in

i Fervor Rises; Long Shots, Also-Rans Numerous
(Taking an idea from the Texas Christian University Skiff,
the Emerald pari-mutuel “handicapper” has"“”listed odds on the
chances of various campus romances to last through spring term.
