"MOONLIGHT" DANCE IS
UNOFFICIAL BAN
MI8S EN8IQN ISSUES DEATH
WARRANT OF POPULAR
PASTIME.
FRESHMAN COMMITTEE IS WARNED
Lack of Facilities for Properly Stag
ing Affair Chief Reason of
Facult yActlon.
Tho "moonlight" danco at Univer
sity parties is a thing of fond mem
ory now, as Miss Allco Ensign has
Issued aa odlct barring this popular
pastimo. It iBn't tho "moonlight"
danco Itself at which her manifesto
Is aimed, but at tho facilities for
staging this form of dance. ShosayB
that in dances of this sort thero is
danger of not properly rogulatlng tho
lights. Tho transformation of alleged
mooplight Into complete darkness at
tho freshman law hop last Friday
furnlBhed tho prime reason for Miss
Ensign's action.
Tho freshman hop, which will bo
held next Friday at tho iLncoln will
not bo featured by two "moonlight"
dances as tho zealous committee In
charge of tho affair has advertised.
Tho committee has been warned to
dlsponso with this portion of their
plans.
Issues a Statement.
In a statement Issued yesterday
afternoon In regard to tho "moon
light" danco, Miss Ensign says:
"In dances of this sort thero is
danger of not properly rogulatlng tho
lights. Howovor, tho 'matter has not
boon taken up ofllclally except In ono
or two Instances and this was boforo
ono or two committees, ono of whlcn
had not planned for such a danco
and tho other which felt tho result
of tho action, but waB entirely will
ing to ellmlnato tho danco and thus
refrain from establishing a precedont
which might bring forth criticism to
tho school. Tho reason is that a
great many of tho hallB aro so ar
ranged that tho danco cannot bo put
on effectively because of arrange
ment of lights."
LIMITED HOP THE "LIMIT"
FRESHMAN LAWS, DESPITE ECON
OMY, REPORT DEFICIT OF $30.
Tho freshman hop, hold Saturday
night at tho Llncol, was truly a lim
ited dance. It was "limited to olghty
flvo" with a total of fifty couples In
attondanco. It was really tho first
limited danco In tho history of tho
University and pronounced by at
tendants to bo "the limit" in more
respects than tho ono.
Tho moonlight dance was not In It
with tho twilight variety which grad
ually dimmed 'itself until tho olevonth
and finally the twelfth hour was
reached. Water, a la hypo-chlorito,
was served in placo of tho usual
punch. In spite of this economy, tho
hop committee has announced a de
ficit of about $30.
WEATHER REPORT.

An unguarded query from Profes

ships for tho Grand Inland business
college this summer in Idaho. He was

operated upon, but at that tlmo his
physical condition was such that tho
appondlx could not bo safoly romoved.

vorslty as a debater and orator, be
sides being popular In dramatic cir
cles, having taken tho leading part In
tho senior play in 1910, as well as
that In several other University plays.
