According t o Webster's^ book the late She Shmoo' Saga.is as,misnamed as, one celebration can be. Consider "She". It is .pointed, out that it is not the "she" who is honored ..during the Saga. The "he" ...is the exalted - every phase •..Di the celebration.being dedicated to his comfort and- well-being. .. -A Shmoo is a little pear- shaped character, famed for •its edibility. While there.are . undoubtedly some at Central who answer this description, these individuals rarely show themselves. - And "Saga". This is away off the track. A Saga, says the dictionary, is a medieval story, legendary, of an Icelandic '. hero o r family. Whether or'not Sadie Hawkins was of Icelandic extraction is a moot point.
