.The never failing spontaneity and
originality displayed in campus
frolics of various kinds is an un
ceasing source of rvonder and sur
prise to everyone. Each affair sur
passes the preceding one in clever
ness and enjoyment, and a new
standard of perfection is reached
with each passing week.
The outstanding event of the
■whole year was the annual Senior
Ball, a strictly formal affair, which
was sponsored by the class of 1927
and was given at the Woman’s
building on Saturday night. A very
modern atmosphere prevailed, which
was typified both in the decorations
and in the feature. A color scheme
of black and white predominated,
brightened with splashes of color
in the chandeliers, the orchestra
box and the stage curtain. Alternate
squares of black and white covered
the walls, topped with long black
and white streamers reaching to the
center of the ceiling, from which
' hung a cluster of brightly painted
cylindrical shades. Any possible
monotony was broken by clever
sketches and silhouettes, all in black
Enclosed in each program was a
tiny painted handkerchief as -a
souvenir. Supper was served in the
sun room during the evening. The
College Knights orchestra from the
Campa Shoppe furnished the music,
and the feature of the evening was ,
in keeping with the spirit of the
evening, modern. From a darkened
stage issued two voices singing one ;
of the latest popular songs, and a
flash of light revealed Madge Nor
mile and Ted O’Hara, who gave a
number of the newest numbers, ac
companied by Billy O’Bryant at the
piano. The last song was sharply
interrupted by sudden darkness, the
loud report of a pistol, a woman’s
scream and a dull thud, and ended
with a ghostly skeleton dance by
three sheeted figures, to the tune
of a funeral march.
Patrons and patronesses for the
occasion included Governor and Mrs.
Isaac L. Patterson, President and
Mrs. Arnold Bon nett Hall, Dean Vir
ginia Judy Esterly, Dean and Mrs.
John Straub, Dean and Mrs. H. D.
Walker, Prof, and ’Mrs. W. F. G.
Thacher, Dr. and Mrs. John F. Bo
vard, Prof, and Mrs. E. E. DeCou,
Dr. and Mrs. J. Hi Gilbert, Mr. and
Mrs. G. T. Gerlinger, and Mr. and
Mrs. E. F. Lawrence. The general
chairman in charge of the ball was
Edgar Wrightman, and Eolf Klep
had charge of the decorations.

One of the most attractive and
entertaining affairs of the season
was the formal dance for which
members of Delta Tau Delta were
hosts at their chapter house on Fri
day night. The scene was that of
a New York night club, and the
rooms were completely transformed
to carry out the effect. The guests
entered by a long walk covered with
an awning, and were admitted by a
tiny doorman in a black and white
Pierrot costume. Lafge blue and
white checker squares formed the
walls, broken at intervals by color
ful sketches of modern young peo
ple in ultra-modern poses. Brilliant
colored arches divided the rooms
and formed an attractive setting for
the Chestnut Colonels orchestra,
which furnished the music. On one
wall was a large lighted reproduc
tion of the fraternity pin, and at
the opposite end of the room was
a little stage peopled by a group of
French dolls in a garden setting.
A feature between each dance lent
a heightened night club atmosphere.
The performers included Miss Sonia
Black, Miss Marie Gribbling and

dances, and Hugh Walton sang a
number of solos, accompanied on

The Valentine motif again fur
nished the inspiration for decora
tion at the formal dance given by
Hendricks hall on Friday night at
the Woman’s building. A large
balcony in black and white had been
erected at one side with a charming
tableau of Pierrette being serenaded
by Pierrot with his mandolin. Red
hearts and streamers from the ceil
ing gave a dash of brightness, en
hanced by soft light from tall floor
lamps, and in the corners were small
tables with pots of red tulips.
White leather .programs told the
order of dances, and Ed Cheney en
tertained with a soft shoe dance.

Beta Theta Pi entertained with
another of its enjoyable informal
dances at the chapter house on Fri
day night. Indirect lighting and
shaded globes gave the proper de
gree of brightness, and a bordered
frieze on the wall bearing the fan
tastic figures of old dragons in
bright colors made an interesting
background. Music was furnished
by the Benton hotel' orchestra from
Patrons and patronesses, for the
dance were Mr. and Mrs. Delbert

Scenes from old Japan made an
interesting and varied background
for the formal dance givep by mem
bers of Alpha Phi last Friday night
at their chapter house. Bright col
ored Japanese parasols, mandarin
coats and panels and coolie cats
adorned the walls, and covering the
fireplace was a painted screen de
picting a lovely Japanese landscape.
The dining room represented a Jap
anese shrine, made real with a huge
Buddha with tall candles on either

by a beautiful centerpiece in red
and white and green, carried out by
red carnations, salvia, freesias and
ferns in a long ^ow basket. Six

French maids assisted in serving.

signs which were take-offs on those
