committee yesterday. This has been
an unusual ticket sale, the sell-out
coming afte; a sale of only a little
over a week. Absolutely no more
tickets will be available, said Wencel
Neumann, chairman
This sale shows the unusual re-
sponse of the Sophomore class, for
the sale was limited to sophomores
for the entire first week so that this,
contrary to most of the large class
dances, is proving to be really a class;
Plans for decorations for the Prom
have recently been completed. The
color motif will be red with ever-
greens and southern smilax used as
the background. The decorations will
feature a large shield containing the,
numerals of the class of '36, which
will be placed over the fireplace in
the Union Ballroom, making this the
focal point.
This resembles the sun which'was
the feature of the decorations for last
year's Senior Ball, one of the first
decorations of this kind to be used.
It is covered with a luminous sub-
stance, slightly iridescent, which
makes it a sparkling as well as color-
ful note.
