Oh, What Fun!
The game is played by two
teams—the frosh on one side, the
sophs on the other. The general
idea is to pull your honorable op

have decided to place a wager of

Only One Obstacle

way of the fun-bent children. The

would not buy the rope for the
boys to play with. Staiger and,
Daniels replied that they wouldn’t
buy a rope either but said that
they might be able to pick one up
some place. So anyone missing a
nice length of rope will kno w j
where to call for it.
Patrons and patronesses of the

Chi O-Sigma Chi Float to
Satirize Croquet Scene
“Alice thought she had never
seen such a curious croquet ground
in her life: it was all ridges and
furrows: the croquet balls were
live hedgehogs, and the mallets live
flamingoes, and the soldiers had
to double themselves up and stand
on their hands and feet, to make
the arches. The players all played
at once, without waiting for turns,
quarreling all the while, and fight
ing for the hedgehogs; and in a
very short time the Queen was in
a furious passion . . .
And again Lewis Carroll’s
“Alice in Wonderland” has offered
the' theme of a Junior Weekend
float. Sigma Chi and Chi Omega
are capitalizing upon' the scene
describing "The Croquet Game” for
their float. Dorothy Ash, Chi O
representative, and Ed Wallis and
Glenn Briedwell, Sigma Chi work
ers, will design a float from that
conglomeration of fantasy. But

fetes, the new achievements in the
way of decorating, the music of
Art Holman, and a UO-type of
bringing a lunch from home. Ma
jors should sign up on the sheet
on the bulletin board so that the
committee may know how many to
plan for, Tom Potter, president of
the Allied Arts league, said.
It was decided that each stu

friend to the outing.

Political Satire
Politics being a fertile field for
satire these days, the Chi O-Sigma
Chi delegation will inject a smat

into their offering. The United
