Humor In Clio-Phi Setting for the humorous pro gram in the Glio-Phi hall is an alley scene with city buildings and back fences. When the program opens, the narrator, Louise George, who represents a bum, is lying on a' pile of coal under a lamp post. The - lamplighter, Jean Stamey, wanders up, lights the lamp, and the two stroll down the alley. Along their path, three cats, por trayed by Joanna Green, Margaret Lee, and Ann Blair, jump out of a trash can and sing “My Sweet heart’s the Gal in the Moon.” In the foyer the path continues to a fountain of life. Behind the fountain are steps leading to a continuation of the path and a background of trees. The path of life divides, and one way leads through a picket fence covered with roses and ivy to the Non-Eu landing. The other side leads through a “back alley” to the Clio- Phi landing. On the Non-Eu land ing is a scene from a city street. On the opposite landing is a scene from a street in a ghost village. Reception Follows Next Paralee Neerguard dashes out as an enraged Mrs. Murphy who is trying to discover who threw the overalls in her chowder. As the bum and the lamplighter go further down the street, poor Johnny, who is trying to see Mag gie alone, crai^ls from under the milk bar followed by his family who compare him to his, Scotch cousin, Bevis, McTavish. Mary Howard Frank, impersonating the 'cousin, comes on the scene to do the Highland Fling. Following the program, society officers welcome guests at the door of the reception room where refreshments of turkey salad, cookies,, punch, and favors of pea nuts in a basket hanging from a cloud are to be served. The theme of the reception room, “Each path entwines around the stairway to heaven,” is written on an arch of clouds over the serving table. Clouds decorate the walls of the room. A miniature stairway leads up to one wall and the stairway continues on up into the heavens. On anoither wall is painted the big dipper which is spilling a path with Walt Disney characters running along it. On a third wall is a large Bible with a ray of light sliining on it which forms a pathway from the Bible to heaven. PaA Yates concludes the program with the grand. finale, singing “Thanks for the Memory.” Doris Ann Link, president of Waltzes are played while the guests are being served. Coats are checked in the lab as the Non pareils and Euthalians enter. The checks are small golden wands sprinkled with dew.
