On Tuesday evening, December 14,
at seven-thirty o’clock, the members
of the Tau Zeta Phi Sorority and their
giiests met in the Sorority room and
in the Y. W. C. A. Hall. Everywhere
Christmas was in evidence. The rooms
were dimly lighted with candles and
shaded lights. Holly, cedar and Christ
mas bells were used as decorations. A
beautiful decorated and lighted Christ
mas tree stood in one co'rner.
‘ ‘ The Grief-Killers-Entertainers, ’ ’
furnished the program. “Bill” was
there and gave us his version of why
he was good just before Christmas.
Then “Jigg’s wife—Maggie, and Weep
ing Sally”—gave a selection, Maggie
singing and '‘Sal” accompanying on
the ‘‘uke.” The last number was a
play, “A Co-ed’s Troubles,” in w’hich
a co-ed w^as confronted with the pro
blem of disposing of her many ad
mirers, in order to make room for more.
How the situation w’as met was quite
A musical contest was held, the
prize going to Miss Ruth Glenn Purvis.
Then came a delicious two-course
luncheon, in which the Christmas idea
was carried out still further. Each
plate contained a hand-painted place-
card and a sprig of holly.
Games and stunts were the order of
the evening. Just as every one had de

tained a number of girls in the B. O. B.
room of the Y. W. C. A. Tuesday eve
ning from eight to nine-thirty o’clock.
Speeches, jokes and gay conversation
were part of the merriment of the eve
ning. Miss Frances Sterrett, in a hap
py little speech, welcomed the guests
and made them feel “at home.” The
Christmas idea was carried out in the
decorations and refreshments. The
club room was lighted by candles; and
a myriad of tiny, vari-colored lights
shone from the gaily-dressed Christmas
tree, which stood in one corner of the
The fun reached a climax when Miss
Helen Rhodes, acting as Santa Claus, de-
livered the gifts, many of which were
characteristic of the girls. Every one
was told to read the “poem” included
in the packages. The reading of these
“poems” caused much laughter, espe
cially Malva Hight’s and “Bobbie”
Gatewood’s renditions. After the
presents were distributed, Christmas
refreshments were served. It is need
less to say that every one enjoyed the
party. Or, just ask Grace Stout,
Malva Hight, Alberta Roberts, Eunice
Simons, Nellie White, Emmalon Ben-
nick, Ruth Alexander, Carmen Collier,
and Miss Fisher (honorary member of

In the second half the White Oak
team came back strong and reversed
the order of scoring making twelve
points to the Christian’s six in that
period, but the lead w^as too great to
