Law School Says Theme Is 'An Ill-Fitting Thing'
Student Body Fell in Deliberate Trap
With Choice of Jr. Weekend Theme
I'ENTON HALL, State of Hoi
lis Apr. 15 "Pre-pubescent Pon
dering*," Is the theme for law
school weekend ceremonies, an
Eirjerald wire recorder learned to
The theme was selected by the
standing committee on themes aft
er nearly a year of deliberation.
The wire recorder was pretty near
ly worn out.
Robert Abrams, committee
chairman and Queen of last year’s
law school weekend, stated that
‘‘this theme embodies all of the
joys and sorrows of childhood un
dergraduate days, and is symbolic
and emblematic of the carefree
times before the stern and self
sacrificing life of the law student
is embarked upon by these ster
ling examples of young red-blood
ed manhood and womanhood.”
This theme., he said, was much
prefered to a similar one, "Child
hood Memories,” which was "sub
mitted by a disgruntled faculty
member of the speech and drama
department for the consideration
of the law school committee.”
Theme Was Not Mature
"This puerile suggestion was, of
course, rejected immediately, as
^not being in keeping with the sort
of theme which the mature young
collegian would care to have asso
ciated with his University,” he
Edward V. O'Reilly, president of
the law school student body, asked
of the reason for the similarity be
tween the law school and general
student body theme, stated that
"in the past it has been our ex
perience that the general student
body committee on theme selec
tions has been able to find out just
what* the selection of the law
school committee was before it was
"This time,” he sneered, "they
were given the impression that the
rejected theme mentioned by Mr.
Abrams was, in fact, our selection,
and as in the past, they stole it.
We were careful to make it like
our theme as much as possible be
cause we feel that by doing so we
are making the general student
body’s Junior Weekend a more dig
nified affair, rather than the fiasco
which it usually is!”
He was coaxed into admitting,
however, that the Junior Weekend
theme was really a poor substtiute,
in his own words "an ill-fitting
Student Body Foiled
Asked her opinion of the con
stant burglarization of the law
school weekend themes by the gen
eral student body, Miss Corrine
Gunderson, secretary of the law
school student body, drawled "of
course they didn't get away with
it this time since they weer foiled
by the committee's plot."
She was nice enough to, add,
however, that "if the general stu
dent body has a little bit nicer
Junior Weekend by stealing their
theme ideas for us. we are happy,
for we regard the members of the
general student body’ as little
brothers and sisters, each and
every one of them."
O'Reilly, finally’ convinced he'd
better talk about something else
before some outsider blew his pre
vious law school smitherines, did
say that, the nominating assembly
for members of the law school
weekend court would be held to
day in room 307, Fenton Hall, at
"We* will have maestro Bobby
Christ and his Fenton Filharmonic
music makers as the convention
orchestra," he said, "and every
one appearing will be given an old
"Vote for Wilkie" button free. The
convention, he remarked is expect
ed to be the same staid, dignified
affair it has always been in the
