(By Howard Donahue)a
Sophomores started their Prom at 9
o'clock last night afthe opening meas-
ures of the gand march hushed the
chattering throng gathered in the ball
room and upper corridor of the Union.
The grand march, led by John P.
Bernard, '24E, and Elsie Stevens, '24,
paraded twice around the dance floor
with some share of the necessary dig-
nity, paused while a picture was snap-
ped and then broke quickly into a fox
trot as the strains of "Drifting" broke
across the palms n front of the or-1
Decorations Enhance Beauty
The artistic beauty of the ball room
was enhanced by decorations consist-
ing entirely of floral creations. Two
huge baskets of premier and ophelia
roses sprinkled with snapdragons
were mounted upon pedestals at the
main entrance to the ball room. On
the north wall above the fireplace was
hung an illuminated shield done i
the sophomore class flowers, aid bear-
ing the class numerals outlined in
white roses against a background of
red premiers. The fireplace itself was
all but covered by a profusion of
smilax strands and banked palms.
The soft colors of the ifowers and
green was further subdued by the
mellow light from the ceiling lamps
which were lighted at a half tone.
The dinner tables in the main din-
ing room and the women's . dining
room, where the traditional Prom din-
ner was served, were centered with
yellow, and blue bud vases containing
spring flowers and roses.

continued without interval except
during the dinner hour, at which time
the Varsity Banjo quintette entertain-
ed the diners with stringed versions
of the newest popular numbers.
As the grandfather, clock in the
upper corridor chimed 2 the 1922
sophomore Prom, like the memorable

memory of riotuous good music, flash-

successful 'pleasure quest. Its suc-

President Burton Extends Welcome
To Visiting Schoolmasters'
More than 5,000 students, members
of the faculty and visiting educators
attended the, first monthly Convention
held yesterday morning in Hill audi-
torium, in which Dr. George E. Vin-
cent, head of the Rockefeller Founda-
tion, was speaker.
The attendance was even larger than
had been expected and people who did
not arrive at 11 o'clock or before were
unable to secure seats, despite the
fact that' Regents, Deans and faculty
members were seated on the platform.
Strikes Convocation Keynote
Suiting his address to his student
audience after having planned to
speak to the Schoolmasters' club, Dr.
Vincent struck the keynote of the Con-
vocation idea, talking to the students
on a subject which appealed to them
and in a manner which drew repeated
laughs. Speaking on "The League of'
Nations of Central and South America
to Banish Yellow D'ever," he said it
was the only league which was not,
opposed by both ends of Pennw;_l-
,vania avenue and which is in eficient
operation now.
He trac'ed the campaign against the
ravages, of yellow fever under th2
direction of the Rockefeller fonnda-
tion in Cuba, Central America and
South America. He showed how in the
city of Guay quil, Equador, where in
1919 there rere reported 465 yellow
fever cases, eight months after Dr.
Connor began the work of attacking
the germ beds of the disease, there
was not a case reported, and has not
been since. I
Sees Elination of Yellow Fever
"We have pe that with continued
work yellow fever will recede from
Its -strongholds and be eliminated
from the world," Dr. Vincent said.
"We are now working in Mexico, since
she has recognized us," he stated in-
timating that the United States had
been tardy in recognizing her southern
"Great progress has been made in
checking the ravages of this disease,
but even after the public health officer
has done his duty, the fact remains
that 80 per cent of diseases are viola-
tons of the laws of health, for which
responsibility rests alone'with the in-
dividuals themselves," he said.
Goetz 'Explains Purpose
The purpose of the Convocations
was explained by Angus G. Goetz,
'22M, president "of the Student council.
He told of the action the Council had
taken in presenting the matter to the
Deans and how the Deans had sup-
ported it, although several had been
skeptical. For this reason he urged
attendance at the remaining Convo-
cations of the year. "Everyone must
help make these Convocations a suc-
cess by their attendance, to .the end
that next year Convocations will -be
continued," he concluded.B
President. Marion L. Burton ex-
tended another welcome to the School-
masters' club in which he offered them
all the facilities of the University for
their meetings. He introduced Dr.
Vincent, who was formerly president
of the University of Minnesota.
