THE PHOENIX must come to an end we were all reluctant to see one-thirty arrive. It was with sighs of regret that we left the Ballroom. Once again the Orient had scored-we had all succumbed to its spell. Evelyn Aiken, KK.

THE INTER-SORORITY BASKETBALL GAME 'Twas rumored that there'd be a basketball game between the Delta Psi Kappas and the Alpha Sigs that Thursday afternoon. Nobody believed it, but sure enough, when the appointed time came, there was the Alpha Sig aggregation right on the soot, ready for come what may. But the deplorable part of the situation was that the Psi Kaps is a one hundred per cent Health Education sorority. Need I add that all the members of the opposing team were real "snarky" players who came in tricky white uniforms as though to impress us even more with their presence? And they had two full teams, too, which enabled them to ke,ep fresh players on the floor at all times. The Alpha Sigs managed one substitute and when she was sent in there was much quick changing of sneakers, for we had but six pairs among us. Be all that as it may, everything was conducted in a very orderly manner. Betty and Jean played forward, Peg and Elizabeth, center, while Evelyn and Ruth started at guard. But oh, those poor guards-the ball was always in Psi Kap's scoring territory, and before five minutes time had elapsed, the guards were worn out. The Veteran guard (who hadn't played for two years) had to retire to the corner of the room in favor of Kitty Hastings. Picture us, with half of our team made up of seniors who hadn't played for a long time, rappling for the ball against a d,ashing, flashing, half dozen white figures. But we saw it thru to the bitter end, and when the final whistle blew, we were only something like thirty-two points behind! However, no one was much concerned since the main issue was to have an hour's fun and we certainly had that. Better luck next time when our opponents will be ' the Phi Sigs, and they aren't a Health Ed sorority, thank goodness! Ruth Mercer, KK, '32.
