As the Grand March Was Concluded

Beau Brummel III Advises Girls Who
Wish To Be Different Not Tock }
Attend Annual Dancea
By Beau Brummel III
Bobbed hair is fading into the past-
at least, that is the opinion of the mas-[
culine reporter who gazed at the col-s
lective beauty of the J-Hop last night.,
And the girls that still have short
tresses are talking about letting them
grow! With the advent of the unbar-
hered locks, ornate headdresses to hold
stray curls in place have been rein-
stated in feminine fancy.
Despite the rumors from Peoria that ;
skirts are getting longer and longer,
the dresses at the J-Hop continue to
be varied in length-some knee-length,
others raeching to the ankle. The
longer dresses have uneven hems-
either scalloped or with an upward -~ - --

Comments On edievalism
Though the decorations were hardly
what 1 would brand as medieval, they
were very beautiful. One of the com-
it "een" iftrme" e that they
sers es"sed to create an atmos-
phere that would have been felt by our
forefathers. Our ancestors must have
felt badly if they had to hunt for at-
mnosphere as hard as I did. Led by the
committeeman, who was anxious to
please me because he was afraid I
would razz his lop, we started in
search of the bits of decoration with a
msedieval tinge. Finally we found the
atmosphere creators--four pictures of
scenes in medieval times, and then
too there were suits of armor to be
seen in various parts of the hall. Why
suits of armor are medieval is hard to
say--they are exactly what every resi-
dent of Chicago is buying for his
new spring suit. Really, seriously
speaking, the things more medieval
about the settings were the antique
rafters which could be seen above the
strips of colored cloth.
The grand march wasn't so grand
after all, having only lasted for 20
minutes and taking place 25 minutes
late. After the march, a picture was
taken and everyone looked pale in the
dazzling light, as they look in the
picture. Movies were taken of the
dancers and, as usual the people flock-
ed around to get in the picture.
Mentions Tariff
When one of the students told me
how much he paid for his Hop ticket,
I was shocked. I always had faith in
young America, but I guess P. T. Bar-
num was right. The ticket scandal
evidently came from someone who
failed to get a complimentary ticket
as he was not as good a politican in
the spring elections as some other fel-
The competition between orchestras
was amusing-at one time it got so
keen that two orchestras tried to play
at once. The couples near Goldkette
were waltzing, those near Fletcher-
Henderson were fox-trotting, the cou-
ples in the center were divided, the
men doing one dance, the women an-
other. This is a polite way of saying
that many couples looked as if they
had seldom danced together before
and that the worst dancers often get

where they can be seen the easiest.
But, after all, the Hop of 1928 was
as good as any other Hop. It had
good music, the decorations witnessed
sincere effort, the favors were excep-
tionally good, and many girls wore
lovely evening dresses. Still, the Hop
had its old fault--it was too big to be
thoroughly enjoyable.
