Miss Garth Honored

Harle Garth of La Jolla, who announced her engagement last week to Thomas Damman, gave her Pi Phi sorority sisters at Stanford a double surprise when she told the news.  In the first place, they all had been led to believe, very cleverly, that Harle had returned to school for winter quarter, and had registered just as had every other student.  Harle, whose European trip last summer prevented her from getting back in time for fall quarter, returned to the campus last week only to make her completely surprising announcement.  For two days—all of registration and day and during the first day of classes, she pretended that she was living in the house, and enrolled in school.  On Tuesday evening, which was her first opportunity to make the announcement to the whole sorority, the betrothal was told via the traditional five-pound box of candy at the head of the table.
