"Sting, Stang, Stung" is a comical piece written about the senior ladies discussing what male students are available for them for the ball. Each of the senior girls is mentioned, each singularly discussing who they would like to take to the ball and who is unavailable. The discussion soon turns to what faculty members the girls would take to the ball. After two hours of debating, the girls finally head off to bed. As an "N.B." the piece states that on the next day, the "boys came to the rescue...better late than never."
