Orchestras Are Being
Lowest' TicketPrice in History,
Seven Dollars, Is
Agreed Upon.
Plans for the largest social func-
tion of the year, the J-Hop, took
definite shape last night when the
committee in charge of the dance
met in the Union to consider pos-
sible orchestras, favors, and decor-
The Ho will be held from 9 to
3 o'clock, Friday nlight, Feb. 12, in
the Intramural gymnasium. Tickets
hav been reduced to, seven dollars,
the 1owest- price in the history of
this affair. They will be on sale at
the main desk in the Union lobby
where they may be obtained only
by juniors until the end of next
week. After this time they may be
secured by members of the other
To Choose Bands Soon.
Orchestras that are being con-
sidered for the dance are Isham
Jones, Johnny Hamp, and several
others. The committee will make
the selection of the band within
the next ten days. Campus senti-
ment seems to favor Isham Jones
over the other orchestras that have
been suggested.
As has been customary in the
past, fraternities and groups of in-
dependents may secure booths,
which will be set up on the sides
of the dance floor. They will oc-
cupy these with their guests dur-
ing intermissions. The booths are
at the present time being assigned
to the various houses.
Favors Are Selected.
Favors have already been select-
ed. They will be imported Floren-
tine book covers of-genrine- leather
done in various colors and of suffi-
cient variety to suit all tastes. They
will have, "J-Hop of 1933," inscrib-
ed on the face. Balfour and Con-
pany, who secured the contracts
for these, are at the present time
working on them.
Decorations for the affair have
not as yet been decided upon. The
J-Hop committee expects to take
this up in the next few days. It is
expected that the auto ban, as in
former years, will be lifted for the
week-end betwen semesters. Last
year it was removed at noon on
the Friday of the dance and did
not go back into effect until Mon-
day morning at 8 o'clock.

clerks and a bomb expert. -
The men found in the lower New

York East side were being question-

The arrests were made in con-
nection with the investigation of
the bombing last week, in which
three men lost their lives, and the
finding of a dozen other bombs
there, and in numerous other cities.
The bombs had been sent to prom-
inent Italians and Italian-Ameri-
The identity of the suspects was
guarded closely, as also was the
chain of circumstances which4 led
to their arrest.
From unofficial sources it was
learned the arrests were made on
information obtained by s e c r e t
service men and postal inspectors.
They had followed a trail from Eas-
ton to Dobbs-Fe ry, where they
learned the dynamnite used in the
bombs had been stolen.
From'Dobbs Ferry, the trail led
