The University marching band
will lead the line of march around

group will proceed to the audito-

"Yellow and Blue" and the "Star
Spangled Banner."
Seniors will wear caps and
gowns to the traditional event.
lnderclassmen will wear col-
ored hairbows to designate their
class: juniors will wear red bows,
sophomores will wear yellow,
and freshmen, green.
Each house has been assigned
a position on the program. Pre-
sentation rules state that not more
than 30 singers may participate in
any one group, no soloists may be
t ed, and no song may be over
three minutes in length.
The name lantern night origi-
nated from the fact that in early
ye ars senior women carried Japan-
, e lanterns. Juniors carried col-
ored hoops through which the
freshmen jumped. At the end of
the program, lanterns were given
to the juniors, and sophomores re-
ceived hoops from the juniors.
Thus the seniors were honored and
passed from campus life.
