Cupid Plays Part in Annual Affair by
Playing Havoc With Hearts
of Men
(By Joseph A. Bernstein)
I sought for joy and found it;
I reveled in delight;
I danced and sang - then lost it;
Come back, come back - 1Ho
Gone-is the Junior Hop of 1920-
down into history as a success never
before equalled in the annals of Mich-
igan social history.
With the dawn of morning, the
breaking day, peering through the
haze of a night marked by joy unre-
fined, found Waterman gymnasium de-
serted, peaceful and quiet. Just a
few hours before it had been the scene
of alluring delight. Hundreds had fill-
ed its massive expanse during the
night. Hundreds had sought and found
gayety there. Hundreds had been en-
Hop-Now Memory
Now the hundreds have Memories
and Dreams even sweeter than the
Through a program of 26 dances,
more than doubled by the insistent
demands for encores, 500 couples had
danced their way to the Memories and
Dreams. Dreamy alluring waltzes,
delightful fox trots, and on', steps
formed the program of the evening.
Music that was incomparable furnish-
ed the stimulant for joy - and joy
there was.
Youthful beauty drawn from every
state in the Union and from even the
four corners of the globe vied with
the splendor of the decorations for the
honors, and youthful beauty won. If
Cupid had been in attendance, as he
undoubtedly was, Leap Year must have
been a success - but that, we leave
for those who hold the ^ecrets.
From the moment the first note of
the Victors resounded through the
transformed gymnasium until the final
strain of Auf Wiederseen filtered
tthrough that Georgian smilax, joy
reigned supreme. The sombre black
contrasted with the white of the men's
formal and the many colored gowno
worn by the ladiea present fitted in
with the spirit of the moment, only
as it can at a Michigan Junior Hop-
and every note of the Victors sounded
Michigan-On Parade
It was Michigan on parade, and
Michigan did itself justice. It was
Michigan vieing for the championship
of the social world, and to the guests
alone we reserve the decision.
The grand march led by Roswell
Dillon, '21E, chairman of the J-Hop
committee, and Miss Wanda Gilling-
ham of Bayport, inaugurated the event
to the tune of the Victors. The 26
dances followed only too rapidly.
Booths elaborately furnished opened
receptive arms to the dancers, yet
there were few who availed themselv-

es of the opportunity for rest. The
Dance called, and the call was ans-
wered until 3 o'clock in the morning.
Then they dispersed. Reluctantly
the guests left that forest of delight
for home, to think and dream of the
Junior Hop of the class of 1921.
