Made Arrangements For 1926 May Party

BAROUR GYM TO REMAIN
SCENE OF MAY PARTIES
Barbour gymnasium will be the
scene of the Architects' May party for
another year at least, it was decided
at a 1ecent meeting of the general
committee. This decision denies the
rumor prevalent on the campus that
the affair would be transferred to
Waterman gymnasium next year.
The rumor grew out of the scarcity
of tickets for this year's party, only
28 tickets being placed on gencral
sale. This was necessary because the
gymnasium will accomodate only 275
couples and nearly that many tickets
were purchased by students in the
Architectural college.

When asked what he thought Of the
costumes, he said he liked his own
best, but ,agreed that possibly some of
the others were rather nice.
"Some of those people must have
spent hours or even days on their get
up," he exclaimed, "and we did not
kinow what -we were to wear until an
hour and a half before the dance.
evertheless, we consider our outfitas
appropriate as any present."
Sir Toby, as his friends call him,
wore a simple blue serge suit, soft
shirt and black tie, and black shoes.
Tle only way by which one could tellj
he was in fancy dress costume was
one gold stripe on each arm of his
coat. When asked what he repre-
vented he said:
"We represent a dead first mate.
What is more appropriate than that
for the bottom of the sea?" There
seemed to be no answer to this except
pcrhaps, two dead first mates.
"Yes," he declared, "that would have
been twice as appropriate, but," he
continued, quoting from one of his
own works, "thank God we were not
born identical twins." This seemed to
Sthaust this topic of conversation.
When asked what costumes some of
his acquaintances wore he said, "We
couldn't say exactly, what they were
meant to represent, but most of them
looked like sea-weed to us." And so
another topic was exhausted.
Having thus run down two themes
to their very bottom, it seemed wise
to veer off on an entirely new tack.
When requested to give his opinion onI
how the British General Strike had
effected the Architects' May party he
Vemarked that:
"It merely kept the Prince of Wales
from falling off a horse, which of
course would have little influence
upon the party except as a topic of
conversation for freshly introduced
icouples."

part of the French capital, the Ecole

all architects being located in this sec-
tion. Special costumes were worn for
the first time, and prizes were offered
for the best. The general treatment
of the gymnasium was cleverly exe-
cuted through the combined efforts of
the entire school. The small shapes
to be found in the quaint by-streets of
Paris formed the walls. Interesting
