NICHES PROVIDED
UNUSUAL SEATING
(Continued From Page Ten)
A number of small niches in the
building terrace were provided for
seats for the guests. These were all
indirectly lighted with a soft red glow.
A larger booth for chaperones, decor-
ated in the same manner as the oth-
ers, was provided almost directly
across the dance floor from the or-
chestra.
Outward from the elevated track,
long streamers of crepe paper were
hung from beams, effectively hiding
for the most part the roof construc-
tion of the building, the color com-
bination of which gave the impression
of bright sky. Directly over the cen-
ter of the dance floor was hung a
large octagonal Incan sun-symbol,
through which shaded lights glowed.
All the lighting for the affair was in-
direct, providing somewhat subdued
illumination which lent charm to the
bright colors of the decorations. It
was a striking picture in which this
social triumph of the architects was
staged, and one which will undoubt-
edly live in the annals of campus so-
cial events.
the party of this year. As we finish
this history this party is still in the
future, but as you read this the
party will be only a mem-ory. As we
write we hope that this party proves
to be a worthy successor to the long
list of social triumphs that have pre-
ceded it and will be entered in the
annals of campus life as another testi-
monial to the creative genius of the
members of the College of Architec-
ture.
