princess from Hainonis, George May, princess

white balloons with helium. At the formal,
Gayle Garth was presented a bouquet of roses
and a silver bracelet. The following officers

In the spring the members elected Anne

paraded a cow across the campus carrying a
sign "This ain't no bull-the Sing Sing Swing's
the best dance ofthe year", or the next morn-

a stop in front of the school-five boys jumped
out and chased Johnny Miller across the
campus until, with the aid ofa straight jacket,
he was hauled back into the ambulance and it
went screaming off. The lrari boys will remem-
