Frat Frolics Flout Facts, Fantasy by Micky McLaughlin Dwarfs, donkeys, dancers, and Zouaves frolicked before appreciative audiences in the annual presentation of Frat Frolics. The least enjoyable parts of the show were its length and several off-color remarks which might have cast undesirable reflection on Greeks. "The Enchanted Toyshop," was presented by Delta Zeta as ihe opening number. It featured a singing puppet, a dancing doll, and a jack-in-ihe-box, but the prancing donkey stole ihe act. A silent movie melodrama, "Hearts and Flowers," was presented by Alpha Sigma Tau. An exceptional job of pantomiming was exhibited, especially by the mother. "And the Lamp Went Out" by Sigma Tau Gamma was quite similar to the preceding act since it was also a melodrama with villain, heroine, and prop man. Props were used to play up words—"she turned a little pale (pail)." "Jonny's Big Day" presented a great variety of talent from Phi Sigma Epsilon. Jonny's dream included beautiful women, skillful tumblers, a jazz combo, and a fabulous rock and roll group. "Big Fat World" was ihe Teke iake-off on ihe Dave Garroway show. The audience first saw a South American combo group. Next ihe "Jackson Alumni Slouaves" gave iheir interpretation of the famous Zouaves. Marching and drills were done to perfection. The wedding of Grace Belly and Prince Raineye in Phi Kappa Phi's "They are Here" lent a humorous note.

Louise Sharp, Leslie Carlin, Katherine Oppenheimer, Esther Altman. favorite pastime, involved most of the wedding party. Garthur Oddfry, complete with Mony Tarvin, singing commercials, and talent scouts was presented by Alpha Sigma Alpha. "Blue Suede Shoes" was pantomimed well. One of the most effective acts of the show was Pi Kappa Sig- ma's dark, weird, and dramatic "Beyond." The presentation used spotlights only with effective modernistic costumes and props. Dragnet sneaked into the TAU's "The Shooting of Dan McGrew," and humor was added to the lively poem. "Stranger in Paradise" was an excellent display of modern dance by Sigma Sigma Sigma. , The red lighting added a great deal io ihe outer space setting as ihe dancers emerged from a space ship. The secrets of a woman's beauty were revealed by Delta Sigma Epsilon in "Lipstick, Powder, and Paint," a delightful combination of singing and dancing. Concluding the program was Zeta Tau Alpha's hilarious version of an old fairy tale retold in modern, "Snow White and the 37 Dwarfs." The 37 dwarfs looked the part, and their unique dancing abilities highlighted the show. . the play is under the direction of Fred Bush, associate professor of drama. The setting for the play is a trial scene in a modern courtroom which is being designed and constructed by members of the class under the direction of Allan Hammack, technical director. The plot of ihe play concerns Maxine Lowe, played by Karen Burchard, who is on trial for ihe murder of her husband. Many witnesses are called io ihe stand by ihe various attorneys, portrayed by Larry Schlaack, Jerry Dahlmann, and Jo Anne Hibberd. What appears to be an compar- itively easy case, soon develops into a very dramatic situation. No one knows the solution until the very end.

'Snow White and 37 Dwarfs/ "Big Fat World' Wm Frolics Zeta Tau Alpha's "Snow White and the 37 Dwarfs" and Tau Kappa Epsilon's "Big Fat World" were judged winners in last week's Frat Frolics according to Dick Florence, chairman. The Zeta Taus were first among eight sororities while the Tekes took first place among the six fraternities participating. In ihe sororities class, Sigma Sigma Sigma and Pi Kappa Sigma tied for second place with iheir acts titled "A Stranger in Paradise" and "Beyond," respectively. Delta Zeta's "Enchanted Toy Shop" was third. Among the fraternities, Tau Alpha Upsilon's "Shooting of Dan McGrew" took second place and Pi Kappa Phi's "They are Here" copped third.

Phi Sigma Epsilon was also disqualified for going over the ten- minute time limit set for all acts during the Thursday night presentation. It was also decided ihat ihe two organizations would be put on probation during next year's presentation and if they again break ihe rules governing ihe show, APO will eliminate the groups from ihe following year's show.
