The Yoncopin, 1933 s SOCIAL LIFE Well, the old School ' s social activities started off with a bang — or at least we heard a report. And thus began open season on debutantes, social climbers (cousins to " the " porch climbers of Sing Sing) and members of a certain sorority, the name of which is too obvious to mention, who went out for big game only; in fact, they " went out " altogether. However, they didn ' t have to play solitaire very long, as their brother frat, " the Fraternity of the South, " that refuses to ac- knowledge a chapter above the Mason-Dixon Line, submerged for the third time in the social swim. So, without much deliberation, the two got together, tilted their nostrils, and started snoot- ing anyone they could get to look at them. Then came a deluge of afternoon teas, a few outstretched rubbers of bridge, and rummage sales given in honor of everyone on the campus the} ' could think of except Jim the Janitor, who, knowing the organizations as he does, deemed it a compliment. The good folks of the local col- lege slaved so hard at these affairs that even the tea felt the strain and the whipped cream was all worked up. Soon the preliminary bouts were over and the gong sounded for the " Centenarv Merry-go-Round. " Everyone began chasing someone whom they thought might be " raters " or among the " elite " in a mad passion of social climbing. However, they discovered that they were going in an endless circle, and only rated in their own estimation. So, when they took stock of themselves, they found they had sold short. This placed the bunch on its own rock-bottom level, which made it hard on the members thereof. Then, since they couldn ' t go any lower, thev tried to stage a " come-back " in a " daze " time, and knowing that " dazies " won ' t tell, the bells chimed in and tolled. This put them far ahead in tin social whirl, thereby tieing the score with an even o. One of our fair young maids got social register and cash register somewhat confused, think- ing that by putting money in it she could cash in on " e pluribus unum, " but the only tag she could ring up was the " No Sale " sign. Finally the struggle of getting nowhere fast was lessened after several severe transfusions had introduced a little blue blood on the campus. Thus was the finish of the year ' s social ambitions and a couple of our best students. • PAGE 174 •

COWAN — Saved the Zeta ' s traditions by being the only member having a K. A. pin this year. FRED EDGAR — President of the student body was seen posting an independent ticket for the popularity contest directly above the ballot box, possibly to inspire clean pol- itics — his own name, however, headed the list.
