22 red noses lined up on a frozen bockey field last Tuesday and 22 pairs of logs
trotted up and down its length until they were severely chapped. From the first
bully on, it was anybody's game, for the Sigma’s, in their "rod pinnies", and the
Mu's pushed the ball everywhere except into the goal. A small, benumbed and bravo
cheering section yelled vociferously until their tonsils'collapse'd from the strain,'
oven though the game ended in a C—0 tie. Then in a throe-minute,,extra period, with
but one minute to plhy, Lib Parham, a Sigma, broke through to make goal and win
the game^for-the'SigmaJls .1-0.

It did us no end of good to see Betty Gaither well again and back at school last

We, the little gals of Saint Mary’s Episcopal Institution For Females Exclusively,
wlish to tell ycu what we.want most for Christmas. There isn't a nicer present in
the world than a fraternity pin—you know, Santie, the sweetheart kind. Lots and
lots of years ago v;e asked for curly-hcaded dolls; later for our first pair of
stockings; and. later s^ill for our first lipsticks. You'll have to admit that we
have done pretty \;ell ’’.vith those and other gifts you have passed our way. There
for o, we arc now asking you for this pin (though you know it’s not our first.') and
since you read minds well ’.;g, wont say -..'hich ones. Honest, Santia, you've got to
see that we get it 'cause cn account of we’ve dene all ./e can ('..liick we think is
pretty good) and (whisper) the outlook on Ufa is still kind of futilo. Just pin
it on our pillo\/s and wo’ll do the rest.
Thanks a lot, Santio darling; wo still think you're faithful even though we ki.nda
suspect ether people aren't.
