Little Miss Margaret Raynal was
the victim of a surprise birthday
party last Friday night at her home
in Lehman Hall. Gowned attracti
vely in a size 39 man’s shirt and
Osh Kosh B’Gosh blue-jeans, little
Margaret jovially received her
guests as they entered. The room
was attractively decorated with tin
cans of Baby Breath placed at 15-
inch intervals about the room. An
atmosphere of congeniality and re
cline was created by removing the
furniture, leaving scatter rugs and
pillows thrown carelessly here and
there. Ruth Lenkoski, in high spirits
and high heels, playfully leaped
from stomach to stomach of the re
clining guests, causing slight un
pleasantness. No one was angry wh^n

ged for the remainder of the evening.

evening. Miss Betty Biles amused
herself by making hen noises in the
corner and Miss Janet Zimmer
stuck her fingers in everybody’s cof
fee. (two more bound and gagged)
Romping playfully, Carolyn Taylor
and Tootsie Gillespie enacted the
Rubaiyat of Omar Khayam, with
props. They were unable to get past
the “jug of wine”.
(Bound and gagged). Miss Dale
Smith and Miss Catherine Nicholson,
having been bound and gagged ear
lier in the evening, were sitting
quietly in the corner. Little Mar
garet, the only participant that was
free, ate all the refreshments, con
sisting of coffee and Chinese cab
bage with chocolate sauce (an old
recipe found in the Medieval Al
Having tired of her guests, Mar
garet rolled each of them down the
stairs, where Mrs. Pyron good-nat
uredly untied them, patted them
motherly and sent them on their
way. A good time was had by all.
