After computing figures
turned in by her committee,
Mother’s Weekend registration
chairman Kay Schneider an
nounced that the junior class
walked off with top honors for
the highest percentage of mothers
registered. 28% of their mothers,
out of a class of 196, were signed
up at Johnson hah.
The freshmen took second place
followed by sophomores and finally
the senior class. It is felt by
Mother's Weekend committee mem
bers that although complete regis
tration was not obtained, the num
ber was high considering that
housing problems prohibited the
offering of a prize cup this year.
Miss Schneider wishes to thank
all those who assisted her during
the weekend and also Dean Eai-1
for his help and cooperation.
Mothers not only enjoyed them
selves but got down to business as
well and elected a new state club
president, Mrs. John H. Carkin of
Salem. They accomplished this at
their Saturday meeting which was
deftly squeezed in before tea,
parade, picnic, open houses and
prom. Reports have it that most
students are still recuperating
from trying to keep up with
mother on her annual gay colle
giate weekend.
She enjoyed the programs pre
sented by Amphibian and Orchesis,
listened appreciatively to the all
campus sing, and even hit the high
spots of the Junior Prom from her
vantage point on the balcony. She
saw various University depart
ments on her campus tour of Satur
day afternoon, dropped in for tea
at Gerlinger, and bounded on to
parade and picnic.
Sunday noon saw mother feted
at dinner in the living organiza
tions of her sons and daughters.
