Jack Frost Makes Vandal's Visit
To Fraternity and Sorority Houses
(By Alfred P. Robertson)
Fraternity Row, or what passes for
it at the university is in sad distress
this week. Students, climbing wearily from
rattlers Monday,
and expecting a luxurious hot bath
and long snooze before going out to
struggle with a first hour Tuesday
morning, were amazed, shocked, grieved when they pushed open the doors
of their respective houses and gazed
at the unexpected desolation within.
For while they had been going the
social rounds in their natal cities,
Jack Frost was throwing many a
frigid party in their domiciles and he
left plenty of evidences of his occupancy. And all because the students
failed to turn off the water supply
before cheeking out for the holidays.
The most plaintive jeremiad of
them all comes from the Pi Kap
house at Rose and Maxwell streets.
Three cold and weary members of
the Pi Kap vanguard, Cap Mauzy, Ab.
White and Ed Hampton, pushed open
the doors of the chapter hotel Monday
morning and prepared to make the
place livable. They built a huge fire
in the furnace, not knowing that the
pipse had been frozen, and wondered
why the house did not warm. As the
