Lantern Night is one of the old-

into the senior class, and seniors
into the outside world. The pro-
gram will begin about 5:30 o'clock,
when people assemble to eat box
lunches sold by the committee. The
Pageant will be the first feature of
the entertainment, and at sunset
the lines will begin to form on Ob-
servatory ,avenue for the march
down the hill. The lighted lant-
erns carried by the seniors are
handed to the juniors, who in turn
pass on their colored hoops to the
sophomores. The ceremony is con-
cluded by the lines forming a light-
ed block "M" on the field, and sing-
ing the "Yellow and Blue."
Tentative plans are being form-
ed to make the Lantern Night pro-
gram the culmination of a Play
