Time Piece 1947
In the 1950s cheese cake was frequently seen
on the front pages of The Ubyssey. It regularly featured campus
beauty queens and sorority chorus girls. The student paper
referred to them as girls, comely-co-eds,
beauties or lovelies.
During Mardi Gras, a sorority fundraiser, women were featured
in a beauty contest and a variety show that included scantily
clad sorority sisters. But dont be fooled into thinking
that it was all wide-open Dawson City. In 1959, a nursing
student was suspended from classes after kissing her boyfriend
on the hospital steps.
