and left envious hamlets in all parts
of the country to come to Ann Arbor
for a plunge into the orgy of music,
abandon of dance and riot of color
which we please to call the J-Hop.

student with the baggy trousers and
two days beard has become immacu-
late in the best "soup and fish" that
could be bought, borrowed or rented.

their combined glory have joined in
the night's whirl. There is not a dis-
cordant note to jar the atmosphere.
