in progress, attended by about wC
hundred men, mostly veterans, for-
gn students, and fsshme For an
hour they earnestly l)U7iei-d their
.partners around th, floor to the ac-
companiment of loudly shouted di-

Mr. Gwinn, formerly a lieuten-
ant-commander in the Navy, said
that he had first developed an in-
terest in teaching social daneing
at Kanoehie Naval Air Stat'ion ini
the Hawaiian Islands.
"Some of the boys usrd to sit
around wondering what to do," he ex-
plained. "They seemed to be inter-
ested in learning how to dance, and
as I had a professional course, I
started to teach in the rec hall."'
Mr. Gwinn said that the classes
here compare very favorably with
those at Kancehe. "No one seems at
all backward about entering into
the thing," he commented. One
source of confusion to him has
been the Del Foy. People kep ask-
ing about it, and he doesn't knew
it. Apparently the Del Foy has not
yet reached the Hawaiian Islands.
JGP's social dancing classes are a
very good idea, according to Mr.

2'~'nnHle pointed out that the
lass es are a wonderful place to make
nistakes without being conspicuous.
Some of the social dancing done on
Wis campus has surpri-ed him con-
idem ably. "Girls nowadays have to
be riagicians to figure out what will
happen next." he remarked.
