and
mainder of the week.
Nonpareil, welcomes guests into
each hall.
The approach to the Science
building is a path bordered by
white graduated Greek columns
entwined with ivy. On the front of
the building is a large portrait of
an angel sprinkling dew on the
path of life.
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.
