A surprise shower was held
Tuesday by the Russian Club for
their adviser, Victor C. Strash,
who were married Aug. 6.
The food shower resulted in a
“supply of chocolate which will
last Mrs. Strash for several
weeks,” a smoked herring, Russian
caviar, anchovies, cherry and ap
ple pies, grapes, and apples. “The
apples were polished beautifully,
but the taste was what was really
good,” beamed Mr. Strash.
Mrs. Strash, the former Ursula
Koch, flew' to the United States
this summer from Berlin, where
she met her husband three years
ago. Strash, assistant professor of
Slavic languages at the Univer
sity, was then serving with the
allied military government. Miss
Koch was his secretary.
A sleeping person is said to move
every 10 minutes. A snoring one
should move once—and stay moved.
It’s very likely to be a successful
marriage when the wife is a treas
ure and the husband a treasury.
