This year for the first time the matinee performance on Tuesday at 1 p.m. will be open to the entire school as well as the sister-students. Terrapins Tango That dances have amphibious qualities will be demonstrated when the Terrapins swim and sway to rhythms which are bound to suit even the most exotic tastes. Those who enjoy dances with a Latin American beat will delight to a trio of senoritas gliding through the water to the intricate movements of the Tango. North America's latest and most popular south-of-the-border craze, the Bossa Nova, has been adapted to an aquatic medium with rich jazz background music by Si Zent- ner. Those whose tastes are more classical might prefer the new look of that elegant 17th century French ballroom dance, the minuet. The synchronized movements of swim mers who waltz nimbly through the water to strains of Johann Strauss will also interest the discerning au dience. Officers Perform Two solos will be performed by Terrapin officers. Jackie Koss, president, will interpret a modern dance and Betty Hansen, treasurer, will tap dance to the tune of Fas cinating Rhythm. Other dances which are strictly American in origin include the lively Square Dance and the Roar ing '20's Charleston.

The world is so you have something to stand on when you get up in the morning. Shoes are to walk in, but whatever happened to the student teachers? Last semester these same girls were wearing sloppy sweaters, knee socks and dirty tennie pumps. Now they're teachers in two-inch comfort shoes, or, better yet, old-lady stacked heels that look like under developed tree stumps. What's next wedgies??? But all is not lost. Congratulations to student teacher Mary Lou McGraw. She still wears three-inch heels and doesn't even ride the elvators. NEW FRONTIER: After the Terrapin show, Mrs. Gorski hopes to set up an intramural-type swim program for everyone who just likes to swim. After all that swimming, anyone who says that Mundle Bundles aren't physically fit is a dirty suburban Republican. And if swimming doesn't prove female prowess, then let's all take a walk. We could probably out-hike the Boy Scouts and at least portly Pierre Salinger. (For an elaboration on Mundelein's 50-mile hike, see Page 2.) WHATEVER HAPPENED TO: Sister Mary Liguori's government class? The good ole days when dances lasted more than an hour, eh, St. Mary's ? Cleopatra ? She is scared to go to Colorado. She heard there is an Aspen, Colorado. Ron Andretich and Michael Cronin? They're engaged to Sheila Ganley and Marge Casey (respectively). The snip clipper or clip snipper? Since Jan. 15 that bulletin board around the corner from the elevators has been boasting of Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities and Theologian Hits Segregated Churches. Won't the snip snipper clip clipper change it or at least take down those back dated to December? Loyola when they lost to Bowling Green? The coal mine at the Museum of Science and Industry? Some sen iors tried to get in and couldn't. They were no longer minors. (It seems this is true at Hamilton's these days too.
