Hop of Upper Classmen Less Crowded
Than Former Ones. Department
Store TagB Used.
The Junior hop, given by the claRs
of 1914 Friday night, was a decided
success. Tho crowd was limited to
one hundred couples and the floor was
not as crowded as It has been at Homo
of tho other hops of the Beason. Tho
program which included sixteen
danceB was enlivened by good muBlc
and everyone seemed to enjoy them
selves. The further searchings of the com
mittee after means by which to keep
out of the roomfl couples who had no
right to be there was evidenced by a
new style of return check. Unlike its
more simple predecessor of the Fresh
man hop, a plain red validated slip,
the new tags were of the department
store variety and were required to be
worn on the coat lapels of tho gentle
men. The effect was rather novel.
Tho chaperones were Professor and
Mrs." Condra, ProfesBor and Mrs. Bar
ker and MIsb EnBign.
