Theta Phi Alpha's Connie Fisher, standing, appears to be giving Ann Zimorski the "Me Jane, You Tarzan" line, in the sorority's skit, Catch Him If You Can. The skit was judged as the best in the variety competition in this year's Blue Key Talent Nite. By winning the award, Upsilon Beta Lambda fraternity's five year reign on the variety category came to a close. The Great Society, rag time, parking problems, folk songs, sprinkled with a little Christmas snow, all played a part in the three-hour extravaganza called Blue Key Talent Night. Held Saturday night before a capacity crowd in the Fieldhouse, the 29th annual display of Loyola's entertaining prowess proved that a snazzy band, the story of girl catching boy and censorship can delight such a congregation as students, kids and parents that interrupted the show on numerous occassions with applause. Theta Phi Alpha took first place in the variety acts, breaking Upsilon Beta Lambda's chain of four consecutive past wins. Their skit, "Catch Him If You Can" depicted two modern coeds, Genevieve Dellgallo and Karla Vulliet, looking back in history to note how the women of the past, Connie Fisher, Kathy Green, and Jeannie Conner, caught their men. Upsilon Beta Lambda captured second prize with "Nanny of the North" a skit showing the takeover of the North Pole by Mary Poppins ousting Santa Claus. Third place in variety went to Tri Sig with its version of "Gee, Officer Tessie", a skit satirizing the two-hour parking problem at Loyola. Chuck Cavet, Evening Division freshman, captured top honors in the individual competion with his vocal rendition of "Satin Doll" and "I Only Miss Her When I Think Of Her". Music Senior Judith Ann Fisher won second place singing "Musetta's Waltz" from La Boheme. Third prize went to A&S freshman John Colwell with his version of a news interview about England's "Great Train Robbery". First place in the Group competition went to the Prolifically Pretentious Philharmonic Precepters and Marching Society. Their musical rendition of "Mame," "If You Knew Suzie," and "Happy Days Are Here Again" pushed "Can- Can" by Les Jeunes Filles into second place. The Hollinshed Singers won third prize with "When The Ship Comes In" and "There is a Ship". Law School players received the loudest acclaim With their tableau explaining their original skit was censored. Blue Key President Robert Caswell, who was master of ceremonies, said after the show that the players were left in the show because they had passed the audition. Caswell said he was satisfied with their presentation. Bob Perez, stage manager, said the show lacked some polish because there was only one night of dress rehearsal. However Caswell called it the best he has seen in the four years he has worked with Blue Key. Judges for Talent Night included Dick Bruce, local radio personality, Dr. John Corrington, head of the Loyola English Department, and Howard Jacobs, local columnist for the States-Item. Jerry and Don Marshall, former Talent Nite winners and now prominent performing singers, made a special guest appearance. The Loyola Stage Band provided the music under the direction of Mr. Joseph Hebert. The Homecoming Court was presented with Campus Queen Sally Droppelman and her maids: Diane David, Janie Maher, Mary Susan Breaud, Mary Ann Sterck, Cheri Weil and Audrey Coleman. The queen and her court, elected by the student body, were presented by Robert Caswell, president of Blue Key. Miss Droppelman was crowned on stage by Margaret Cloutier, last year's queen.
