The psychic pain created by a disappointing game against Yale was eased somewhat
by our annual post-game Class Cocktail Party in the library at
Terrace Club. Attending were Beaver, Bush, Conway, Detjens, Hillegass, Joan Sachs
Shaw, and Southwell. Reported to have been around, but not seen here, were Gargalli,
Howson, Max, Santee, and probably a few others. Those who did not attend missed a
wonderful variety of food, including spiced tofu, skate, chicken wings, salsa and
guacamole, and sandwiches and wraps, along with lots of beer and wine, and good companionship.

was there also but doesn’t get any credit for photography.
