"We're No Daisy, We Tell"
Senior Thresher spells Settlor Dirt
and we present what the dignified
Seniors should wear on their week-
ends . . . namely hats! And what day

There's that eyesore to the campus,
one ESQUIRE OPPENHEIMER who

Paris, and not thru the style maga-

"Wake me early mother dear, for
I'm to be Queen of the May!" says
our own petite BABY FACE WOODS,
and wonders what to wear. In fact,
shes been wearing everyone out about
what to wear. We suggest a ...
DRESS and let it go at that. And
why can't we meet at your house?
And who carries the torch for the
whole mob but WILBUR COMMUN-
IST BORSKEY? It seems that this
gay Lothario runs them on schedule,
and manages to keep them apart!
This, in itself, is an accomplishment, j
How do you do it?
The week's surprise came with our
apparently quiet and reserved Senior,
one MARGARET ELK INS who re-
vealed, albeit inadvertently, that her
knowledge of Love Life was pretty
thorough, and that she was not to be
GEORGE WASHINGTON BROWN
makes his debutttttte with one EFFIE
HUNT, and puts another one on the
train for Dallas one night last week,
on the sly! In fact, could he raise
one, he would probably be twirling
his mustachios this very minute.
While WHOOPS MY DEAR CRAW-
FORD says that each gesture of his
sleeve resembles nothing so much as
the flight of a swallow. But those
muscular legs give the whole thing
away! Sink me, if they don't!
BEVERLY RUDD has the nerve to
state that there is one professor whom
she has merely to appear interested in
and he gives her a good grade. After
this, we should say . . . both BEV-
ERLY and her profs . . . BEWARE!
And in the case of BUDDY DAU-
NOY, we say CAVEAT EMPTOR for
various and sundry reasons. We also
recommend that he go into business
as an OPTICIAN or OPHTHALMO-
LOGIST since he even got cupids vi-
sion up to some 12 feet!
Here, indeed, is a choice bit. Picture
our old friend AMPHOTERIC QJUS
KENSCHEN, coming down to break-
fast in red-striped black pajamas.
Gvis says, quote, I will fight for my
breakfast, and for HER honor! un- j
quote! He is also a pretty astute ;
judge at the Girl's Tennis Matches! i
Then, too, there is SUSIE PLAG-i
IARISM BUFORD who is all the time
stealing a famous authors stuff, and j
doing it better than he does himself, j
And is she a FLASH on the tennis i
court! Urnmmmh hhh'hhh! (indescrib- I
able sound!) i
"Don't forget our Scholarship," says :
ELIZABETH PERCENTAGE NEATH- !
ERY, Sweetheart of Rice (ballot box 1

now about the E. B. L. S.-PRE MED

on April 27, which is a Linen Formal,

put in bv request of SCOBEE, the ]
publicity manager of same). 1

BANNER said, "I see no reason why
we cannot have the Senior Banquet at

LAURA WASHBURN takes the
torch in English 400 as being the only
person called on but once, wjw an-

time honored phrase of Seniors, which
says, "I haven't given the matter any
consideration," or "I don't believe I
am quite familiar with that particular
instance," instead of merely, "I
DON'T KNOW!", or "HUH?" That's
all for-!this week. Be seein' ya! Also

!| The coming week brings one of the
season's gayest programs to Loew's.
Opening Friday is Metro-Goidwyn-
Mayer's musical romance, "Reckless,"
starring Jean Harlow and William
Powell, with Franchot Tone, May
Robson, Rosalind Russell and Nat
Teaming two of the screen's out-
standing romantic stars has apparent-
ly proved to be a happy thought for
Metro. For since they were cast to-
gether in this musical, stories are
making the rounds that Miss Harlow
and Powell have found romance in
real life. "Reckless" is said to be
something of a counterpart to their
actual romance off the Hollywood sets.
The picture reveals new accomplish-
ments of Miss Harlow's singing and
dancing. Preview audiences are re-
ported to have been greatly surprised

at the quality of the star's voice and
her expert footwork. Several new
swigs are introduced, along with a
new dance called the "Trocadera." In
this she is assisted by Carl Randall,
a famed Broadway dancer.
Much of the typical William Powell
wit, which served to make "The Thin
Man" one of last year's best pictures,
is reported to be used effectively in
"Reckftss." The story concerns the
adventures qf a bewitching dancing
star who becomes the foil for a front
page promoter of anything from train-
ed flea circuses to Broadway musicals.
Other features on Loew's master week
program include another issue of the
"Maroh of Time," a technicolor film,
and Easter songs led by Smilin' Ai
Evans. Loew's organist.
The story is by Bradford Ropes, au-
thor of "Forty-Second Street." Dance
ensembles were staged by Bobby Con-
nolly, with scores of Hollywood's
beautiful dancing girls. One of the
unique numbers is a replica of the
100 girls, is led by Jolaon and Mis*
