The Kappa party was tops as
always. I thought it was very
thoughtful of the boys to present
Dr. Crump with a silver loving
cup to show that they appreciate
all that he has done for them. He
has been adviser and confidant for
the Kappa lads for a long, long
time, and he really deserves some
token of appreciation. He and
By Nellie Dodson
pretty Mrs. Crump are the most
popular couple with the younger
crowd, and they are always sought
after for the parties. Grand peo
ple, both of them.
Here and There: June Hawkins
and Earl Shamwell are becoming
very, very constant company. . . .
The Jeanette Williams - Kermit
Kitchen duo is also in the too-con
stant class. . . . And Al North and
Marie Miller are going places to
gether these days. . . . Harvey
Atkins crooned his songs in the
Moonlight-and-Roses manner at
the Kappa party. And did every
body like it! . . . That beer counter
in the downstairs part of the
Chalet seems to be the rendezvous
for even the bone-drys at the
parties. . . . Two of my “silent”
crushes; Dave Hall and Don Bona
parte. . . Some lady down here in
the office just said that she thinks
Richy Adams is the “cutest boy.”
And two other gels who are here
agreed very emphatically. . . . Earl
E. Shamwell just came in. Wait
until he finds out he’s “in print”
this week! . . . One of the St. Paul
brothers whom I mentioned as
two-timing lawst week, glared at
me in a most ferocious manner the
other evening, but as I was telling
the truth, my frans, he couldn’t do
a thing BUT glare.... After every
party there are about a dozen of
them wandering around trying to
kid the public. . . . Marie Hughes
is making the best advertising
woman this town has had in a
blue moon. She’s put through
gangs of political ads for the
paper. Which tickles me, as there
has been a procession of men ad
vertisers parading through here
for weeks and none of them have
done much of anything but talk
big. ... I wish school was just
beginning for the year instead of
letting out. I’ve been out on that
campus so long that I don’t know
. . . that the new lower electric
rate enables you to add electric
refrigeration, electric cooking,
and electric water heating, to
your home ... and bring your
electric rate down to around 2
cents per kilowatt-hour ?
this new rate will gladly be fur-
nished upon request. Northern
States Power Company.
Electrify your home
what to do when I’m away from
it. . . . One Minneapolis society
lady saw Bud Roach dancing with
sister-in-law Agnes Ellis at the
Kappa party, and said what a nice
couple the “newlyweds” made. I
beg your pardon, madame; it’s
Agnes’ sister, Susie who is Bud’s
missus. My goodness, what a
mix-up. . . . Earl Shamwell pops
up again. Marie Hughes just
asked him: “How are you and the
string beans making it?” (She
was referring to the fact that Earl
can really go for string beans at
dinner.) But Earl said vacantly:
“Who? Me and.?” Here he
mentioned the name of a very tall
gel around the cities whom he was
formerly accused of paying some
lukewarm attention to. So the
gal’s a string bean, eh, Earl? . . .
Henrietta Anderson is one of the
prettier of the younger debutantes,
I think. ... If half of the people
who have invited themselves to go
pay a visit to Wilda Parker in
Chicago this summer, carry out
their intentions, the Parker house
will resemble a summer hotel or
A certain Minneapolis lady was
swinging lightly along Nicollet
Avenue one day recently, when she
saw a well-known gel riding up
the street in a car of Rolls-Royce
dimensions. A few minutes later
she saw a certain man-about-town
standing on a street corner laden
down with a huge bouquet of
lilacs and numerous small pack
ages. He said that he was wait
ing for, —of all people!—the same
gel who was riding in the big car!
Seems as if the gel had given him
the packages and told him to hold
them while she went on an er
rand, or somethin’. While he
held the packages and looked silly,
she was riding nonchalantly up
the avenue on twelve or sixteen
cylinders. Tsk, tsk.
