Transcript Jan Garrison zeroes in for a perfect landing in this D-Day event, above. As far as Patsy Burns is concerned, her milk gulping days are over, below. Add one part tub, one part mud and season generously with girls for the unappetizing mud- slug event, right. 88 Anticipating bedlam, Sigma Chi's get ready for the mystery event, above. Left, Spring Flingers battle it out across the reflection pond in the marathon canoe race. Spring Fling, Derby Day Cause Campus Chaos It was a mud-, milk-, pie-spattered campus as two organizations hosted their annual spring competitions—the campus dormitories' Spring Fling and Sigma Chi's Derby Day. A dorm's topsy-turvy marathon canoe race across the reflection pond and a wild, pie-slinging free-for-all were events typical of Spring Fling. The marathon was taken after six hours by the OB Gang Bangers and a combined Taub-Bates Hall team won the overall prize. Coeds in hot pursuit of Sigma Chi's kicked-off Derby Day. Each derby bagged gained the girls' organization a point towards the trophy. Field sport competition was the week's wind-up as groups competed in events ranging from a milk gulping contest to a "mud slug" where coeds fought in a tub of mud for chips bearing their organization's name. Zeta Tau Alpha won the overall competition with Chi Omega and Delta Gamma placing a close second and third. ZTA Connie Cox was named Derby Day Dolly and Joel "Mammy" Williams won the Dec-a-Sig contest for Alpha Kappa Alpha. 89
