Annuo! Frosh Glee Canceled
Financial Flop, Says Council
The Frosh Glee will not be held this year. At a special meeting last
night, the executive council voted unanimously to call off the traditional
freshman class function.
Financial statements of the past three Frosh Glees influenced the
negative decision. Dick Williams, educational activities manager, re
ported that the 1946 dance had broken even; the 1947 dance lost $100;
and the 1948 dance went in the red $190.
Judging from the figures, Williams said that the dance will probably
lose money again this year. Since the present sophomore class is in the
hole over $500, the council decided that it would be a protection for
this year’s freshman class to wait until next year to undertake its first
class function.
Ticket sales for the Glee have averaged 394 for the past three years.
Average income has been $558 and average expenses, $655 making the
average loss $97.
More specific details of the dance show that in 1946 the freshmen
sold a total of 323 tickets at $1 each bringing in a net income of $323.
Total expenses were $323. The dance broke even.
The following year 501 ticketts at $1.33 each were sold making a net
income of $775. Expenses totalled $875. The dance showed a loss of
The 1948 Glee income totalled $575. 357 tickets were sold again at
$1.33 each. Expenses tallied $765 and the dance lost $190.
When the student union is finished, it is hoped that the Frosh Glee
will be made an affair for members of the. freshman class and their
dates only, Williams added. This will be done with the class approval,
he said.

She Bears and Valentines Worry Columnist
By Hal Boyle
NEW YORK, (AP)—Is a house
wife more sentimental than a
showgirl ? Is a blonde warmer than
-a brunette or redhead ? What does
a lady bear do in a bar? Yes, a
real lady bear.
These pressing problems of ro
mance and animal behavior were
- settled in a single action-filled af
ternoon on the pseudo-scientific
(Gad, and to think, when I was
in college, my journalism instruc
tor wasted time with such que
ries as, “if you owned a smal.
.. weekly newspaper and your lead
ing advertiser got arrested for
stomping a young orphan to
* death, would you print the story
—or ask him for an ad?”)
But to get back to the thermal
nature of women and the barroom
habits of she bears:
Six beautiful girls—A house
wife, a business secretary, a col
lege freshman, and three broad
way showgirls—were the subjects
of the first test.
J. Harry Lange, 56-year-old
salesman for the Hallmark greet
ing Card company, read a senti
mental, novelty, and humorous
valentine card.
Their reactions were recorded
i a “sentimeter,” which is the
nickname for ‘ a continuous-bal
ance electronic potentiometer.”
The machine scientifically records
temperature changes of one-tenth
of a degree in one-five hundredth
of a second.
Well, guess what? The house
wife registered “hot” on the sen
timental greeting but “cold” for the
novelty and humorous approach
es. But that’s no news. Any hus
band knows a wife can't see any
thing funny about love.
The secretary, on the other
hand, registered no change at all.
This may have been because she
had been taught never to mix
business and pleasure. Or it might
be explained by the fact that
Lange, after all, was to her only
another bald-headed married
The reaction of the blonde
showgirl to a lovey-dovey valen
tine was only “lukewarm." The
brunette, Norma Thornton, of
Iowa City, la., registered "warm
hot.” The red-haired lass, Abbe
Marshall, was clocked at "semi
But the blonde—Judy Sinclair
of Philadelphia—remarked:
"If they’ll give with a fur coat
instead of a valentine, I’ll burn up
the darn machine.”
Then Lange himself climbed on
the seat. As one showgirl read
him a valentine, the other two
suddenly threw their arms around
him and kissed him. He zoomed
the machine’s pointer to "boiling.”
And who would that surprise?
Everybody knows about bald
headed men.
Oh, yes, the bear.
Well, on the way back to the
office I saw a crowd outside a
bar. X went in and there was a
trained Russian bear, standing
behind the bar and wearing a
white apron.
The hear was Russian. She Was
named Laura and weighed 375
pounds. She was drinking a mug
of beer from Rita Colton, a tele- o
vision actress. One of the regular
patrons was grumbling about the
whole business.
“Give the bear a check,’’ ho
he grumbled. “Nobody lets me lap
up beer free.”
And I kept thinking about the
decline of press agentry in old
New York.
