Traditional Procession Marking The
Advancement Of Classes Ends
Colorful Affair
Lantern Night, the annual ceremony
which is to the women wh'at Cap Night
s to the men, again made Palmer
Field the scene of festivity last night.
With the appearance of the Freshman
Pageant, the affair was a brilliant re-
'iew of color and beauty throughout.
More than 1200 onlookers crowded the
surrounding hillsides.
A picnic supper, which has become a
iustomary part of the evening, was
held at 5:30 o'clock, and the specta-
tors were amused by stunts given by
the various classes. The sophomores,
,n white, assembled in the form of the
number 1926, doing homage to the
senior class. The junior group of-I
fered a representation of "required
gymnasium", while the seniors, in
large hats and long skirts, were the
participants of a Lantern Night base-
Pall game of 1890.
The stunts were followed by the
picturesque Freshman Pageant. The
pageant represented all the numerous
hopes and dreams and fears that enter
into the life of the three joyous maid-
ens who "trip onto the stage of life."
There is the jester, mocking all; then
cpme dreams, beauty, grief, toil,
doubt, fear, courage-and last of all
the wild exultation of joy.
After the last soft music of the
pageant had died out, the Lantern pro-
cession was formed. The seniors in
caps and gowns came first, bearing
brilliantly colored Japanese lanterns,
symbolizing the brightness of college
lays. Next came the juniors with
their, gay hoops, followed by the
sophomores and freshmen.
Marching to the strains of the Var-
sity band, the line descended and cir-
cled the field. The seniors then
marched down the center with a row
of juniors at each side, the sopho-
,,ores to the right and the freshmen
to the left. The senior line broke into
pairs and passed under the arches
]eld by the juniors; the sophomores
crossed over, marching through the
ranks of the freshmen, the four classes
finally assembling in a block M, with
the bright rays of the lantern outlin-
ing the whole.
Singing of the senior song, and the
innouncement of elections into Mortar
Board, Senior Society, and Wyvern
closed the program.
Irene Field, '27, was captain of the
procession. Miss Janet Cumming of

will be taken care of before the new7

a new plan announced by Ira M.

The new ,plan, it is expected, will
do away with the registration delay to1
a great extent. It provides that in-
stead of undergoing the usual medical
examination by University physicians,
the prospective student may be ex-
amined at home by his family doctor.
A standard blank is provided and the'
record is later scrutinized by officials
at the Health service upon arrival and
then accepted instead of the usual'
It is hoped by officials that the plan
will do much to eliminate the delay
and confusion of the registration

majority will and the policy is in line
with that of making easier the transi-
