Hundreds Dance

To George Dafy's Music At Annual Military Ball

Miniature Air Battle With
Noise And Light Effects
Surprises Crowd
A capacity crowd filled the Union
ballroom last night and danced under
shifting lights of red, white and blue
at the annual Military Ball sponsored
by members of the R.O.T.C. George
Duffy's orchestra played for the dance
which lasted from 9:30 p.m. until
2 a.m.
A unique feature of the affair was
the miniature air raid, a surprise
stunt planned by members of the
committee. A dirigible crossed the
darkened ballroom followed by a
squadron of planes and played on
by searchlights from various parts of
the room and exploded when it
reached the balcony opposite the or-
chestra, with all the uproar of a real
air battle.
Lyon, Heser Lead Grand March
Don Lyon, '35A, and Delbert Hesler,
'35E, led the grand march with Bar-
bara Shuker, '32, Detroit, and Lillian
Dannahower, Kansas City. Miss
Shuker wore a white gown featuring
halter straps of flame chiffon and
forming wide revers in the front har-
monizing with the pencil silhouette of
skirt. A cape decorated with three
scallops about the neckline completed
Miss Shuker's costume.
Miss Dannahower chose black net'
with black taffeta trim as her frock
for the ball. The taffeta formed three
large ruffles outlining the low decol-
letage and another ruffle about the
bottom of the skirt. A rhinestone
buckle fastened the taffeta belt, and
a rhinestone clip finished the back.
Other Conmittee Members
> ileen Lay, '37, attended with John'
Young, '36, a member of the commit-
tee for the dance. She wore white
organdy with a small red print and
puffed sleeves edged with red moire
ribbon. An unusual feature of the
frock was the row of tiny buttons
down the front of the dress from
neck to hem.
Paul Phillips, '36, chairman of pat-
rons, brought Betty Bowman, '37, as
his guest. Miss Bowman wore white
satin with rhinestone trim as did
Barbara Roberts, 537, the guest of
Kenneth Mosier, '36E.
Doris Vater, '36, appeared in tea
rose taffeta made in the princesse
style with square neck and a flared
skirt, with which she wore green ac
cessories. Miss Vater attended with
Charles Framburg, '36E, committee-
Pastel Colors Seen
Pastel shades of pink and Wue
were the choice of Alice Stebbins, 3,
and Inez Stevens, '37, who were the
guests of Jack Sinn, '37E, and Francis
Dulyn, '35E. Miss Stebbins' frock
was of organza, ruffled around the
bottom and accented with a blue
flower at the waist, and Miss Stevens'
which was of mousseline de sole, also
featured ruffles as trimming.
Rush Bowman, '37E, invited Dor-
othy Shutt, '37 to the Ball. She chose
dark blue net with a frilled train and
Dorothy Sprau, '36, who was the guest
of Don Norton, '35, ticket chairman,
appeared in green crepe with a black
stitched collar.
Betty Hill, '35, appeared in the
grand march with Don Norton, '35,
chairman of publicity for the dance.
Miss Hill's gown was pink crepe made
on simple fitted lines and with an
unusual collar finishing the neckline,
which was high both in front and
