    Feminine Corsage Creations
^Cause Catastrophic Conditions
After struggling through the mob of females checking and
unchecking coats, the roving reporter breathed once again and
looked over the dance floor and the dancers.
The women on the campus obviously have an innate sense
of humor and ingenuity after watching the hetrogeneous collec
tion of corsages and such donned by the campus swains for the
Mortar Board Ball. —_
.Despite the ceaseless drizzle SAE
Jim Kolz looked charming in his
Shriner-like chapeau, a white lamp
shade trimmed with a red satin
bow and matching streamers.
Pinned on his lapel was a corsage
of red carnations. Also seen in a
bonnet was Sigma Chi Bud Ros
sam, squired by Chi Omega Audrey
Berdine who decorated Bud’s bon
net with a spray of flowers.

You will have no trouble in choosing a gift
for the most descnminating when you select
from our varied stock.
Come in today and browse around
age for DG’s Jean Herndon and
Joan Williams who gave ..their
dates beautiful leis entwined with
their favorite brands. ATO Barney
Franks, on the arm of DG Barbara
Johns, locked a little discouraged
wearing his calla lily and baby
onion lei, tied with a huge red bow.
It seems that Barney is allergic
to onions.
Phi Delt Tom Kay, escorted
by Gamma Phi Joan Hibbs, and
Ed Salstrom, with Gamma Phi
Irene Moor, added a delicate spray
of spring flowers to their coiffures.
Upon careful examination SAE A1
Paulson’s corsage was distinguish
able, if not distinguished. It con
sisted of a mouse trap, complete
with mouse, a tooth brush, and
other serviceable little trinkets
from the imagination of Gamma
Phi Phyllis Holdman.
Vegetable Nosegays
Fiji B. G. Cox and SAE Wayne
Brown carried all-purpose )nose
gays of carrots, radishes, and pars
ley against a paper lace back
ground. When the lads got hungry
they were seen on the dance floor
munching at said corsages. Sigma
Chi Bob Daggett added another
Hawaiian touch by sporting a wrist
and ankle bracelet of spring
The crew cut and halo effect of
Kappa Sig Art Stilwell’s flowered
headdress looked strangely like
something worn by so-called native
Americans, and Art added to the
impression by greeting friends with
a significant “How!”
Each corsage was an individual
creation of the female mind, and
these are but a few of the maty
outstanding ones spotted. Some of
the fellows wore theirs proudly
while others ducked behind the
nearest pillars to avoid recogni
tion. Now the girls are well aware
of the intricacies and expenses of
campus dating and luckily, the gals
add, the Mortar Board Ball comes
but once a year.
