a grand opening is being held to-
night. Dancing to Al Cowan's or-
chestra will begin at 8 p. m. and
last "until the guests go home," Grace
Mayer, '34, president, said last night.
New decorations and lighting ef-
fects will be the main features of the
event. Modernistic screens will divide
the east and west ends of the room.
The screens, designed and painted by
Miss Dorothy White, assisted by Ma-
son Whitney, '34A, are done on a
black background and outlined in
gold. Conventional designs in intense
colors of Chinese reds, jade green and
blues are carried out in studies of
three forms, water scenes, and exotic
flower designs. White forms an effec-
tive contrast to the vivid coloring.
Novel lighting devices make it pos-
sible for the west end of the room
to be entirely unlighted except fora
the reflections from the footlights at
the base of the screens. At the east
end the tables will be lighted by
candles. Flowers and ferns will dec-
orate the room further.
Flood lights on the lawn will be
turned on the windows of the grill.
This is being done so that students
will know that when the flood lights
are on there is dancing in the grill,
according to Miss Ethel McCormick,
social director of the League.
As a special feature tonight, loud
speakers placed at the windows will
carry the music out to the streets.
Miss Mayer emphasized the fact that
dancing will be a regular feature on
Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday

At the first meeting of the club

ton, '34, vice-president, and Marie
Prahl, '34, treasurer.
