Used To Royalty
By JAN FARRELL
Diane Peterson, new Honorary
Commandant, is not unaccustomed
to being considered royalty. In
fact you might even consider her
a double royalty, for she was a
countess in this year's Ak-Sar-Ben
Bail. Diane, Miss Navy, is a senior
in Home Economics from Fremont
and a member of Kappa Alpha
Theta sorority. v
I asked Diane if she was sur
prised when she was named to
Honorary Commandant' and she
said, "Of course I was surprised.
I didn't know that I had been
chosen until Ron Blue was standing
m front of me on the stage.
"It wasn't like the Ak-Sar-Ben
Ball because I had known for such
a long time that I was going to be
a countess. The Military Ball was
much more of a surprise. I don't
think that my parents even knew."
When I asked if anything excit
ing happened before the Ball, she
said, "oh, nothing except that I
almost didn't have a dress to wear.
I decided to wear my Ak-Sar-Ben
ball gown, but it had to have the
train cut off, and I didn't get
around to taking it to the dress
makers until Tuesday. When I got
there she was so sick and didn't
think she could have it finished by
Perhaps you wonder Just as
much as I do what an Honorary
Commandant-to-be does just before
she goes to the ball. Does she
worry? Chew her nails? If Diane
Is the answer, she went out to
dinner, not in her ball gown, but in
a pair of jeans.
Diane said she had only one
complaint about the ball. She
thought the Nav-Cad choir was ex
cellent, and Diane Knotek sang
beautifully, but she didn't get to

If your answer to the question is a quick NO, think
again! You may be gambling with fire every day.
Do you think that by obeying a few rules you are
protecting your home and family from the danger of
fire? If you do, you're a real gambler, all right!
The only real way to prevent fire is to become aware
of the causes of fire. Make yourself fire conscious! The
man who is careful not to smoke in bed can lose his
family, his home and his own life as well, simply be
cause the curtains in the kitchen were hung too close
to the stove.
