The social hourglass of 1.954
has sifted itself away nito noth
ingness, yet Carolina socialites
have another year and a stream
lined new glass of time before
them. Among the sands of 1955
will be numerous parties and
pinnings, escapes and engage
ments, weekends and weddings.
This promises to be a year
of new looks the full classroom
look, the shapeless Dior look, th
higher dormitory bill look, and
perhaps the George-less look.
But with the same people and
the same places, bigger and bet
ter parties loom on the social
horizon. So relax and enjoy it!
After this and varied other
vigorous greetings to the New
Year, the first weekend didn't
seem typical of future predic
tions and aspirations. But those
time-consuming days are nearly
upon the Carolina calendar a
gain; so, on second thought, re
lax and enjoy it after Jan 29!
For instance, KAs, despite
the move into a decharred and
remodeled house, assembled
troops to a study party during

Construction of a million dol

begun on the new Wake Forest
College campus here, according
to college Vice President R. G.
The 10 building units will con
tain a total of 72 apartments to
be used by faculty and adminis
tration personnel when the col
lege is moved to Winston-Salem
in mid-1956, Deyton said.
Sixteen will be three-bedroom
apartments. The other 56 units
will be built on a "flexible
plan," he said, so that they can
be used as either two or one
bedroom apartments. '

gencies in Literature and Music
