All Work on Affair Is Done by+
Central Committe and
Class Members.
Eight years ago the Freshman
Pageant was inaugurated on this l
campus as an annual event with the
representation through dance of,
the Greek theme, Persephone and
Pluto. Since then it has grown to
be one of the University's most col-
orful traditions.
It has for many years been the
custom to have some form of enter-
tainment immediately preceding the
Lantern Night exercises. Until 1920
it was an all-campus affair with
both men and women playing parts.
In that year, however, it was de-
cided to open the parts to only
women students and a Maypole
Dance was presented at Ferry Field.
In 1923 it was decided that the
women should undertake the proj -
ect of presenting a pageant on that
night. It proved to be an outstand-
ing success and so Miss Jean Ham-
ilton, then Dean of Women, decided
to allow the freshman women to
attempt another pageant the fol-
lowing year. Since that time the
entertainment for Lantern Night
has been given over entirely to the
The idea of presenting the Greek
themes in the first pageants given
here was borrowed from Barnard
college. The idea of presenting a


Greek myth in pantomime was orig-
inated by them.,in 1903. At that
time athletics were stressed in the
pageant and the story was depicted
through games. Gradually the aes-
thetic side, was worked into the
theme until it replaced entirely the
games and an entire program of
dance was the result.
All the work of the pageant here
is done by the freshman women. A
central committee is elected by
them in March which has charge
of all arrangements. After the elec-
tion of the committee the actual
work begins. The theme is chosen
and intensive rehearsals begin im-
mediately. :All costuming and stage
settings are designed and executed
by the entire class.
Dean Lloyd Talks on

Knitted Suits and Matching Hats
Are Smart Spring
' By B.A.C., '3$.
Sports wear is commanding even
more than the usual amount of at-
tention here on campus this week.
The cause may be attributed to the
annual drive which is being spon-
sored by the Women's Athletic As-
sociation. A fashion show which
was held last Friday called atten-
tion to the correct mode in sports
Sports clothes for classroom wear
are always practical and advisable,
but never are they more appropri-
ate than in the coming spring sea-
son. When one is able to go with-
out a coat, nothing is more com-
fortable than a knitted sports suit,
,which combines practicability and
style. Worn with the new jaunty
little hats, mascothscarfs, and
smartly cut oxfords, a every attrac-
tive ensemble may be devised.
An especially charming sports
dress which recently came to our
attention was one of a strange
shade of rose-beige which was suc-
cessfully combined with garnet. It
was a knitted. two-piece suit, the
sweated blouse being quite long, and,
very plain. The material was close-
ly knitted and had an all-over pat-
tern of tiny squares which were al-
most imperceptible. Outlining each
of the squares was a thread of gar-
net which made one conscious that
a pattern,did exist.
The skirt was long and flare).
The trimming note was contained
in the scarf of the mascot type
Which outlined the neckline. The
scarf might be folded over at the
isde and worn as a stand-up collar;
it might also be worn as a mascot
scarf tying in the. front. The ma-
jor portion of this scarf was rose-
beige, but across either end were

two strips of garnet. The belt, too,
was of this same garnet shade.
The hat worn with this dress was
a tiny crocheted one of rose-beige;
there were rows of stitching from
the center to the.edges, and just at
the very top of the crown was a tiny
bow of garnet.
Yellbw and brown are also used
to good advantage in sports combi-
nations, one uisng brown for its
basic tone, and being trimmed with
a ,pale yellow was attractive. The
material used in the dress was wool
crepe, that yery popular material,
which also has the happy faculty of
being serviceable.
The yoke was of pale yellow, and
extended down over the shoulders
half-way to the elbow where it was
met by the brown lower portion of
the sleeve, which came up over the
elbow in the shape of an elongated
pdint. The cuffs were trimmed with
tiny yellow buttons.
The main feature of this dress
was also a scarf, showing that the
unusual popularity recently enjoy-
ed by scarfs of all kinds has not yet
definitely waned. The central por-
tion was of yellow; the ends were of
the same rich shade ofbrown as
the basic tone of the drass, and
they were accordion plaited. It was
worn looped over one side and al-
lowed to hang at the right, empha-
sizing the oddly shaped neck-line
which was definitely a one-sided v,
terminating at the right of the nat-
ural neck-line.
