Peace and quiet are again set
tling down on the campus, fol
lowing one of the greatest home
coming celebrations in the his
tory of the University. Yes, one
even finds students reading books
in the library these nights instead
of wandering about looking for
prospective dates . . . and people
are even awake in the browsing
room now (I watched until I saw
someone turn the page of a book).
In general, people are trying to
catch up on studies before
Thanksgiving vacation, the next
event to plan for this term. We've
heard of several students who
holiday tomorrow and have it last
are going to begin the four-day
through all of next week. That's
as bad as weekends beginning on
Thursdays and lasting until Tues
Tt’nt it fun to watch lil’ .Tack
Bryant collecting '‘dirt’’ for his
8-ball column in the College Side.
In case you’ve missed him, he’s
the cute little fellow in the bright
plaid jacket with the wad of copy
paper in one hand and a camera
in the other. We mention him be
cause we'd hate to see him miss
out on publicity just because he
writes the column!
Irony of It All

vacations perhaps this editor
should combine the two and cut

Many Pledge Dances Dominate Full Weekend
of the Week
Pretty blonde JANET GOR
ESKY stopped the show when
she appeared at the homecom
ing dance in a gay stop-red
A straight skirt, flared in
back with just the suggestion
of a bustle, topped by a tricky
bodice, buttoning down the
back, made Janet's dress an
ideal date dress.
The new shirred elbow
length sleeves and a touch of
gold costume jewelry at the
neck and wrist added a final
note of smartness to the cos
today’s epistle short to keep peace
with “Steve” at the press. But
first T must air my grief the ad
staff of this illustrious paper is
so ambitious they have a sell-out
every week for space on the wo
men’s page, which seldom gets a
chance to really shine for the gen
erous advertisers due to lack of
space. There’s no justice!

Tells Woes '
Here we are again—me with a
curler on the one piece of hair that
always gets caught in the shower.
I haven’t seen my shower cap since j
September 30 when Betty-—one of
our dear upperclassmen—admired
it so much.
Well, down to more serious
things. I don’t see how I’ll ever get
ready for this faculty dinner to
night. I have been assigned, under
Betty, for door duty, and I haven't
the least idea what they want me
to do. Shall I just open the door
and smirk at them, or shall I hus
tle the minto the living room and
then dash off with their coats?
Honestly, I’m so worried, I didn’t
even enjoy my ham barbecue when
we cut history this afternoon.

Gosh, if anyone finds this, think
of the demerits! I’d better hide you
in the bottom right hand drawer
under my pajamas this time, in
stead of under my stockings. For
some reason, no one has tried to
borrow my “stop red’’ PJ’s with
the bright green dragons on them.
Do you suppose they don’t like
Gee, there goes the first buzzer,
and they’re yelling at me to hurry
up and get downstairs. ’Course,
they aren’t even dressed yet—fact,
my roommate said she just passed
Betty on her way home.
Objects to Dirty Work
This heaping big responsibilities
on a freshman is even worse than
the house duties we have to do.
They’re an indignity—fancy moth

I don’t see how I can welcome all
these faculty members, when they
don’t even know me. I don’t see
why they don’t let freshmen pick
