Unique Dress
Worn by Coed
In Chatanooga
A coed at the University of
Chattanooga wore a hat composed
of one white lampshade, one bath
tub plug chain, one shoe lace, two
paper clips, and a skimpy bouquet
of artificial flowers, during all of
one day. The only impression She
created was the envious stare of;
a waitress in a restaurant.
—Hampden-Sydney Tiger.

trees begin to leaf and so do

of corsage do you want ? Four

widow is what you take on a hay-1

doesn’t make a fool out of a coed
nearly as often as a coed makes
money out of a fool.

Higher Learning . . .
School days, school days,
Dear newfangled school days;
Fencing, eurythmics, and plastic
Taught by the aid of a Binet chart;
I was a lad with a low I.Q.,
You were a maid with a minus
Just what we learned we never
But that is a new-fangled way!

Wild West Will
Reign Soon in
A WS Carnival
Jump up seven, come down
Swing your partner* like a gate.
, Rattle your spurs,
And trail your heifers,
i And all stampede.
With the calls of the square
dance and the strains of the cow
i boy band, the little pioneer town
of Eldorado comes into existence
for one night of revelry in the
rambunctious western spirit.
Along main street the doors of
the gambling houses, the saloons,
the barber shops, the bank, and
the shooting gallery are thrown
wide open for the frontier cele
And Eldorado does come into
existence April 23, when the
i AWS sponsors its anual carnival
in McArthur court.
Business houses will be op
erated by University living or
ganizations, and music, in the old
and new manner, will be supplied
by Carl Rooen and orchestra.

Frosh Coalition Meets
Disaster; Blocs Reign
The frosh coalition, heralded as a political.“cure-all” early this
week, was shattered yesterday when party organizers, boring from
within, split the class into two distinct blocs and pushed up the
barriers for spring term “horse-trading.”
Art Hannifin and Wally Rossman rallied support for a Sigma
Chi, Phi Delt, ATO bloc. Each was maneuvering for bloc support
in the race for soph class presidency. Stan Steiger held the position
of “number one map” in the Sigma Nu-Kappa Sig party.
The coalition split evolved into tw'O blocs, formed around a few’
houses. The support of either group among other houses remained
indefinite test night.
In spite of the “rebel” bloc formation, it was believed possible
last night that a third bloc might form from the houses remaining
in the one-time coalition.
