OH, NO! by Dan Pogoler It was a drowsy winter day of January, 1970, when I awoke from my slumber with my head feeling like a two hundred ton brick. Being a neurotic I decided to have a visit with my special psychiatrist, Fraiilein Annette Weiss. Because I was in such a hurry, I hailed a Leon Katz Yellow Cab, which was driven by Andy Hazelle. As I entered the reception room of my psychiatrist, I was greeted by the receptionist, Norman Siegel. While I was being ushered into Fraulein Weiss's ottice, to my amazement whom should I see rushing out, but the mad musician, Peter Vogler, with scraps of sheet music flying from his fBillyl Davis hat! After inviting me to recline on the couch, Faulein Weiss then proceeded with her fPeggyl Barret treatment. My mind slowly wandered back to the previous night and the gala ball in honor of the Count and Countess Berman Knee Mickey Gartieldl of lKennyl Kuhlman Kounty. As I entered this dazzling affair, I remembered my wraps being taken by the two head butlers, John Allen and Don Houk. While the orchestra played the Uanetl Schroeder Concerto, under the direction of Selwyn Rose, I made a mad dash to the newly invented IBIIU Clack phone to call Susan Bichachi, editor of the Daily Darrow, to inform her that her gallant reporter, fme, of coursej was covering this social event of the year. I got back to the hall in time to witness the can-can dance done by Beverly Silver and Dorothy Duke, which was presented by Diane Plotkin's Can-O-Matt. Following this was Rod Edwards, the famous singing star of North Atlantic, accompanied by Kenny Johnson at the piano. Afterwards various other acts were presented by Faye Aratani's Holeless Do-Nut Shop, which gives you more dough for your money, Robert Lewis's Reducing Salon, Steambath KC-Peralolinel Murray, Rock's Novelty Shop, COMBINED COUNCILS Row I-Linda Crickmore, Janice Yamamoto, Dora Silk, Betty Todd, Susan Bichachi, Kenny Johnson, Shirley Bennion, Helen Strasser, Rosalie Gross, Frances Marcus, Barbara Suval, Bobbie Perll, Wanda De Witt.

Sharon Mack's Peroxide Bottling Company, Big Bob's Watch Manufacturing Corporation, and Norma Peterson's Voice Studio. Wild Animal Trainer Margie Drake began to clap loudly, and everyone else joined in, including her favorite wild animal, Carl Hunn. There were many celebrities present, and among them was Marion Megrdichian, famous little bad kid of the stage, Sheila Ann Miller Margo, noted tap dancer, Marcia Gilbert, Spanish quiz kid, and Vernon Landry, radio's Sam Spade. The highlight of the program was an original play, Forever Chuckie, penned by Nancy Baker and Shirley Bennion. Seated in the audience was the worId's greatest Olympic orange squeezer, Moe Bloom, who seemed to have eyes only tor Shirley. The drama was sponsored by the Silk-Wolf Sweater Shoppe, located on No-land Johnson Boulevard. Refreshments were served by Ted Matthews and Fred Rosenthal, from the Schwartz Catering Service and Seltzer- cola was passed around by dispensers Bobbi Perll and Pat Motfet. In a second there was a shrill scream and the lights went off. I sensed someone near me, and I knew then that my pocket was being picked. When the lights went on, I realized my story of 259's football triumph was gone, and I noticed Jesse Miranda on the roof above crawling into his Polin helicopter. Dashing to the home of my two mechanics, Roger Summers and Joe Miller, I picked up my Kelley rocket ship, manufactured by the Mad Irish- man, and took after Miranda up the .loyce Motty Trail to the fMarilyn1 Bluh Planet. I parked my rocket ship at

Remember that Miranda was a reporter for a rival paper, The Atomic News, owned by Marvin Snyder. Feeling hungry and in need of energy, I entered Coast's modern ice cream parlor, owned by Nathan Karsh. I ordered a fLarryJ Pear-sall sundae, and was waited on by Irene Levonian. The sundae was all lshy-Kanian. At that moment newsboy Marty Ansoorian was selling the latest issue of the Atomic News, and the front page surprised me, for the story which was stolen from me was not printed. Now intent on the idea of seeing Miranda, I started on my way. As I entered the building of the Atomic News, I spied Rosemary Hoffenberg, known through- out the world for her tremendous height, and a group of howling girls around the well-known French actor, Frank Abrahamian. I got up to room W. 1950 by means of a Knapp elevator run by Marilyn Lee. Upon arriving at Miranda's office, I was ushered in by his private secretary, Audrey Smylie. As I looked around the room, I then knew the reason behind my story's being stolen but not printed. It was a cover-up. Miranda was working for 218 and dangling from the ceiling was 259's football pennant. I snatched the story from his desk and ran to the Daily Darrow building, where it was given a first page banner headline. The next day I picked up the paper. The headlines read: Winter '50 Graduates Make Good in World. EDITOR'S NOTE: Any resemblance between the foregoing article and Danny Pogoler's original version is purely co- incidental! THIS TERM'S COUNCIL A successful Big and Little Sister party and luncheon, a beautiful installation ceremony, and an enioyable Council luncheon, featured another active semester of the Girls' Council, sponsored by Mrs. Catherine Brown and Miss Mary Helms. They also sponsored publication of Poems of Thankfulness at Thanksgiving time. Elected officers are Shirley Bennion, President, Rosalie Gross, Scribe of the Manor, Betty Todd, Mistress of the Wardrobe, Helen Stras- ser, Keeper of the Insignia, and Susan Bichachi, Lady, of the Manor. Most memorable activity of the joint councils this year was the Log Cabin Christmas for which all members ioined with Cabinet to collect usable toys and clothing, worn but wearable, for needy children of Kentucky. Chief innovation of the Boys' Council this year was the launching of the Big Nine and Little Seven Party, initiated with the intention of promoting good fellowship between the A-9's and incoming B-7's. Patterned after the tradi- tional girls' party it met with great success and will prob- ably be continued throughout the coming semesters. Boys' Council officers are Kenneth Johnson, president, Jerome Franklin, vice-president, and Jimmy Kimsey, secre- tary. Sponsors are Mr. Karl Lovejoy and Mr. Don Campbell. ,.,.
