FROSH CLASS The class of 1945 started out their social activities with a reception at the home of Dr. and Mrs. John Wirt Dunning. Once in the swing, it wasn't long before the neo- phytes underwent their orientation into the duties to upperclassmen and the necessity for a particular type of distinguishing mark fgreen bows and potsj. After hurling ignominious epithets at each other for several days, the two youngest classes of men in Alma met, at the instigation of the Sophomores, at Davis Field for a flag rush of 15 seconds easily taken by the freshmen. The Paiama Parade brought Pioneer Hall out into the public thorough-fares of Alma to exhibit their gay night garments and to be duly cured of all insubordination in the subsequent command performance at the Strand Theatre, where histrionic ability early showed itself. November 8 marked the calendar with the Frosh Frolic, on the night of the Alma- Albion game. Making use of the fine new chapel recreation room, committees planned an All-Frosh class party for December 9. Early January brought a humorous chapel hour with freshman boys displaying their talents. At about this time marked ability in the freshman class in general began to show itself: Beth Aron and Emma Richter in debate and Bob Henny and Betty Powers in drama. The freshman were well accustomed to the idea of pledging by the latter part of January: smokers and open houses had been in progress all fall. Thus February found would-be fraternity men doing sentinel duty in front of Wright Hall, along with other equally unusual activities, and non-sorority women being led through a maze of spreads, teas, and rushing parties prior to their more belated initiations. All in all, the class of T945 proved itself worthy in many fields, scholastically it ranked very high, in debate, oratory, athletics, and general progressive outlook it took its place as well as filling to many leadership capacities. 105

HOMECOMING Gray skies and damp weather seemed only to heighten enthusiasm for all the activ- ities of Homecoming, 1941, from the bon-fire to the concluding dance. Coming in a years of "first" fthe new chapel having been dedicated only the week beforej, this year marked the end of the first half century of Alma College homecoming programs. To whip plans into shape for the event, a committee was formed, consisting of: Prof. C. Carney Smith, Chairman, Lee Clack, Vice-Chairman, Miss Smith, Miss Ardis, Prof. Ewer, Ruth Kolvoord, Ralph Brown, and Jack Heimforth. The Homecoming Queen chosen from the freshman girls was Bad Axe's Norma Hass. Her court consisted of Barbara Pettyiohn, Shirley Sharpe, Dorothy Champ, Barbara Van Giesen, Isabelle Purdy and Pat Williams. The brave college organizations drove their floats through the drizzle Saturday morning, bolstered spiritually by the Kiltie Band and all the trappings of the floats. Phi Phi Alpha pulled down first place with a hillbilly motif, "The Martins and Coys Phi-udin," followed in second palce by Alpha Theta, which chose to represent its crest. This year's homecoming luncheon was as crowded and as entertaining as ever, with the initimitable Scotty Purves piping the band to their places much to the delight of everyone. lt was a fine build-up for the Adrian-Alma game in Bahlke field, for Alma mowed down her opponents with effective steam-roller tactics, ending the game with a score of 46 to 6. After the game, everyone proceeded to Wright Hall for a sociable treat of coffee and doughnuts. Fulfilling the purpose of communion with friends old and new, the different frater- nities and sororities of the campus held their annual formal dinners. One of the most unforgettable dances of the year, the Homecoming dance had an unusually good attendance. Its guests enjoyed the music of Howdy Mack's orchestra and some very intriguing decorations by the art department from 8:30 until 11:30. All good things must end, as we are told in the Good Book, but this event of 1941, with its renewal of all acquaintances and old traditions will surely remain one of the very bright spots in the history of Alma College.
