Es- corts at church and at Sunday dinner caused quite a commotion, and then, alas, at two o ' clock curfew sounded and many dejected girls found them- selves either hopelessly in love or hopelessly out of it, but deserted in either case.

Contrary to all expectations, bas- ketball, not skiing, was the sport of the winter season, especially among the Griffins who began to take their turn at success.
