Of Junior Weekend we sing today,
Of a formal dance and a luncheon gay,
Of what to wear at each event.
We hope your time will be well spent.
You’ve been hearing about it
for weeks: you've seen evidences
of it in the roadside signs along
Thirteenth street, the huge stage
being built in the Igloo, and the
pictures of Queen Ellie and her
court. Tomorrow is the official
beginning of Junior Weekend and

school and Friendly hall, you’ve
missed a vital part of the cele

something light if it is warm—a

High, spot for junior women at
the annual campus luncheon to
morrow noon will be the tapping
of new members of Mortar
Board, senior women’s honorary.
In accord with tradition, black
robed undergraduate and faculty
members of Mortar Board will
move through the luncheon
crowd to present the red rose of
pledgeship to new pledges.
Scholarship requirements for
Mortar Board membership this
spring are the highest for many
years, according to President Bil
lie Christensen. Because of the
upward swing in the campus
GPA, Mortar Board require
ments move up in equal propor
tion. A minimum of 2.8 will be
necessary for pledging. Activities,
character, and attitude are the
other considerations, Miss Chris

it's time to give her hosiery
A good excuse for giving your favorite
Mother something rather special to show
that you think she’s something rather
special. This year more than ever she’ll
welcome hosiery that’s all silk and
just as sheer and lovely as it is
durable and practical.
