SWEETHEART BANQUET BOWS
TO LEAP YEAR TRADITIONS
Once every four years the fe-
male population of the world Is
given an opportunity that only
something like Leap Year can
However when this opportunity
presented itself to coeds on cam-
pus confusion and turmoil reigned
Indicated a poll taken In the dormi-
tories. The purpose of the poll
was to decide whether or not wom-
en students should ask men stu-
dents to the All-School Sweetheart
Banquet Friday February 12.
The "ays" outnumbered "nays."
As a result tentative plans are now
set for female to ask male and for
all women students to avail them-
selves of the privilege this year
brings according to Miss Martha
St. Clair director of student activi-
ties. "Stairway to the Stars" is the
theme of the banquet which will
feature Mr. Benny Bray Focus

Gene Smith program chairman is
also planning entertainment pro-
vided by local talent. Highlight of
the evening will be tho formal
presentation of tho BSU Sweet-
heart. Tickets are now on sale on the
campus. Holders of meal tickets
may purchase tickets for fifty
cents Those not holding regular
meal tickets may purchase tickets
for $1. Deadline for buying tickets
is February 10 at 5 p.m.
The banquet will be in the col-
lege cafeteria at 7 p.m. The revers-
al of who asks whom for the date
is only one factor that promises to
make this one of the most unique
college-wide social events of tho
year according to Martha St.

tion and activities and Shirley
(Crunch) Crenshaw banquet chair-
