W k-End Ptes
One of the most important social
events of the week-end was the for-
mal dance given by the Lawyers Club
Saturday night. Many campus social-
ites were seen dancing, garbed in my-
riad colors. One of the loveliest dresses
observed on the floor was that of
Jane Bassett. Of acquamarine crepe,
it was trimmed with brown flowers,
and clippers of the same shade of
brown completed the costume.
Betty Cooper wore a charming
gown of skipper blue crepe embel-
lished with rhinestone shoulder straps.
Betty Aigler chose peach as the color
for her gown. A dark shade of velvet
was the fabric of Margaret Anna's
long-sleeved formal. F r a n c e s c a
Schrauder was striking in emerald
green set off by a gold sash and
flowers. Rae Mann and Kathleen
Carpenter, the former in maroon and
the latter in black shot with gold,
Marie Abbott wore a simple but
unusually clever combination of the
ever-popular black and red to the
Alpha Delta Phi dinner dance. The
skirt was black and the tunic top red
with intricate gold stitching on the
collar. Josephine Cavanaugh attended
the same party gowned smartly in
light blue crinkle crepe and Mar-
garet Mustard wore distinguished
black with silver sequins. Marian Pat-
erson in pastel crepe and Betty Kay
Jones in blue with a large red flower
at the "V" of her decolletage were
seen, as were Mary Neal and Virginia
