An Immense crowd of hum folks at
tended the gymnastic and folk dnnee car
nival given by the Young Women's Chris
tian asxoclntlin at the Auditorium last
night, In which more than .100 girls of
seven years and more participated.
It was tho first time the Young Wonv
en's Christian association had attempted
a public affair on such a large scale, mid
nn abundance of credit was ghen Mis
Clara M. Brewster, ptiyscul director, for
the varied and excellent program.
The big arena on the main floor of tho
Auditorium was filled for tho opening
march which proceeded In a triumphant
entrance to tho applause of appreciative
fathers and mothers and sisters and
brothers, with Green's orchestru playing
a spirited air.
Surlmnilni; frill nml Dnnrrn,
Tho dumb-bril drill and the Junior sink
ing Karnes given by the younger Klrls
provoked hearty applause. The swim
ming costumes with their red caps lent
atmosphere to swimming drill, while the
esthetic dances and clog which followed
scored a decided hit.
Perhaps the participants themselves
gained more amusement from the zig-zag
basket ball race than any other event,
tho hall being filled with feminine
t-crcRms of delight as one side or the
other tossed the ball the inoie rapidly.
Tho Junior relays, too. proved a pleasing
novelty, ns did the body building exer
cises In which more than ICO girls par
ticipated. Volley ball Interested the men
and they rose in the crowded boxes and
cheered as the glrN and matrons thumped
the Inflated sphere, across the high net.

Then came the campfirc girls, dressed
Inflndlan costumes, with their wigwams,
cumpfires and welnles. As the tepc.es
were rapidly erected, tho fires were
lighted In large squares of tin. and the
Klrlfl sat about the blaze with their legs
crossed Indian fashfon and toasted the
"welnles." Then In the darkened hall the
campflres suddenly disappeared and In
nn instant 200 girls wth waving lighted
Jess sticks danced across the big hall In
the glow worrri' dance, which was per
