still during the past week due to the
influenza ban, although numerous
picnics were the order of the time.
The paper chase last Saturday morn

dances for many, and formed the
chief event of the week-end. Now
that the ban has been lifted, there
is a promise of many dances, formal
and informal, given by the different
organizations on the campus.
The sophomore class dance is the
largest this week, the others con

The men’s gymnasium is the scene
of the hilarious hard time lottery
dance given by the sophomore class

evening are being refreshed with

monade. Dean Fox, Miss Perkins,
Dr. Cole, Mrs. Beck, and Dean and
Mrs. Morton have been asked to
