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 $100. 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 front. (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 stranger. 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 boiling.” 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.
