Servis Leads March
Jane Servis, '36, general chairman
of the ball, led the grand march,
attired in a violet crepe gown, with
short sleeves and inserts of silver
lame. The low v-shaped decolletage
was marked by a sash of the material
tying in back. Miss Servis was es-
corted by John Carstens, '35BAd.
White moire taffeta was chosen by
Margaret Cowie, '36, publicity chair-
man, whose dress was gathered to
fullness in the back with a bustle
effect. The simplicity of the gown
was relieved by a silk cord belt and
a ruby clip in the center of the large
white bow at the neck. Miss Cowie
was accompanied by William Cutting,
of Detroit.
Margaret Mustard, '35, ticket chair-
man, escorted by John McCarthy,
'36, wore a black crepe formal, with
top of gold sequins, and a short train.
Bitter-sweet velvet was selected by
Betty Rich, '36, program chairman,
whose dress also ended in c short
train. Frank Rennell, '36D, accom-
panied Miss Rich.
The chairman of music, Jean Shaw,
'36, escorted by Parker Lofthouse, of
Detroit, appeared in wine velvet, with
a deep cape of silver sequins. Blue
moss crepe trimmed in net pleating
at the square-cut neck was chosen
by Madeline Coe, '35, chairman of
floor and refreshments, who was es-
corted by Harold Klute, '37L.
Metallic Notes
Louise French, '36, wore a gown in
effective and smart black-and-white
contrast. The skirt was of black
satin and the top of white taffeta
shot with gold threads in plaid pat-
tern. Miss French, decoration chair-'
man, was accompanied by Dewitt
Snyder, '36. Jean Laitner, '36, pro-
gram chairman, was attractively
gowned in wine velvet. A rhinestone7
buckle fastened the belt which crossed
in the back and met in the front.
Van Dunakin accompanied Miss Lait-
ner to the dance.
Peach net over taffeta of the samef
shade fashioned the formal worn by
Betty Aigler, '35, president of Pan-
hellenic. The dress fitted tightly to'
the knees, flaring from there to the
floor. A cape of net was worn with
the gown. Miss Aigler's escort was
Don Bulmer, '35M.l
A light blue dress was the choice
of Ruth Root, '35, secretary of Pan-
hellenic, for the annual dance. A
silver sash and silver sandals were
the bright touches of her attire.
Campus Leaders Present
Maxine Maynard, '35, president of
the League, was charmingly gowned{
in a scarlet moire robe de style. The
off-the-shoulder design and full skirt,1
tightly gathered at the waist, were
indicative of the popular revival oft
the picture dress. Her accessoriesl
were black.
An apple-green crepe dress was
chosen by Katherine Rietdyk, '36,
member of the J.G.P. committee.
Ruffles fell from the knee to the floor,
an extreme decolletage was another
smart feature of the gown. Silver
sandals and rhinestone jewelry aug-
mented her attire.
The general chairman of J.G.P.,
Julie Kane, '36, selected a formal of
a deep purple crepe to wear to the
ball. The dress was simply cut in
a v-neck, and was accented with
flowers at the shoulders.
Kathleen Carptenter, '35, chairman
of the JudiciarytCouncil, selected a
brown lace dress, effectively con-
trasted with accessories of orange.
