Marion Bell Washington ' s Social Season By Marion Bel I Back to the moth balls goes my tux, Jerry. The social season at Washington is over. White gloves have v eathered the storm of popularity but tails and corsages still remain on the fence. Sorry I can ' t be here next year to see the continuation of the battle. Perhaps now I ' d better mention a few of the functions that I missed In the telling. The night of Varsity Ball the Frosh frolicked away the evening hours in the Queen Anne Community Club in a de- cidedly jazz atmosphere, hluge posters of Joe and Josephine College plastered the walls and huge notes ran riot among them. Robert Slr;tterdahl engineered a good dance for the Sophomores at Sand Point Golf and Country Club, on November 7. The committee had a good dinner before the dance and for those who enjoyed it the most the idea was a moonlight one. Those who went to the Varsity Boat Club party at the Queen Anne Com- munity Club, January 23, were offered the special attraction of miniature golf on an eighteen-hole course in the base- ment. Why anyone would rather play miniature golf than dance is beyond my comprehension, but the crowd seemed to enjoy It. The committee used " Beat California " as their idea for decoration and entertainment. 256

Fred Heclcer I TOLD YOU once, Jerry, thaf I always did like spring for- mals and I ' m nnore sure of it than ever now. Cadet Ball, on April 17, gave me, as well as the Freshmen, a big thrill. Freddie h ecker and his committee used the Civic Auditorium again and with the same success of the Varsity Ball committee. One would expect Freddie to have good music and he did. A " Heidelberg Idea " was used, with the setting an ancient garden among steins and ancient guns. The whole dance had a dreamy air and music from the " Student Prince " helped to pre- serve the atmosphere. I remember it as a flotsam of beautiful girls in light spring formals looking adoringly at the men in uniform; soft music and a good floor. Then I began to regret that it was the last dance of the year and this was my last year in school. Why is it girls always look so much better in dainty, spring clothes? I saw a dozen that I could fall for in a big way. Perhaps that feeling was part of the atmosphere but anyway " the memory lingers on. " Organdy, lace, net, and taffeta — those fabrics that always mean spring — no wonder I fell in love with all the girls. Lace mitts also substituted for heavier white kid. Funny how men like to cling to that old illusion of the fragility of the weaker sex, isn ' t it, Jerry? The military men put on a big pub- licity stunt for the dance by shooting blank cartridges at an elusive airplane up by the Chimes Tower. Cadet Ball is sponsored by Scabbard and Blade, men ' s military honorary. 255

Oval Club and Mortar Board gave an exceptionally good Open House the night of the Adelphi Mixer in the gym- nasium. The crowd went from one to the other ballyhooing favorite dark horses In the political race and dancing furiously meanwhile. They said they did not make as much money as in former years, but you should have seen the • crowds. I never miss an Open hHouse if I can help it, Jerry. They are so delight- fully informal. That ' s the way I met that date I had Friday night that you thought was so good looking. Not that I ' m trying to make you envious or any- thing but I just want you to agree with that man from Dartmouth who implied Richard E. Byrd ' s acceptance of an that the social life at Washington was honorary membership in Compass and the best ever. Chart was read during the evening. Compass and Chart, men ' s naval Flapping penguins and polar bears honorary, entertained In the Spanish figured in their " Arctic Idea " and the Ballroom of the Olympic Hotel, Febru- orchestra played from the depths of an ary 6, with their formal. Rear-Admlral Jce cave. I understand that the uniforms cut a pret ty figure. And will anyone ever forget the popularity contest, April 4, at the Knights of the Hook Informal. Again I remark that It was a shame that you had to miss such a brilliant season, Jerry, remembering how you shine at social functions. Perhaps it is just my V senile old eye, but I would say that co- eds are getting better looking every year, especially when they are dressed up. On that last sentimental note I will start consoling myself to a summer spent in a place where they won ' t know the meaning of the word " formal. " 257
