Originating in 1913, the pro-
gram started as a women's field
day held at Palmer Field. All
the women on campus partici-
pated in various races and
events, but gradually class stunts
began to take the spotlight. The
first line of march took place
around Palmer Field in 1932.
At this time all the seniors car-
ried lanterns, from which the
name Lantern Night was derived.
The juniors carried hoops through
whcih the freshmen jumped.
TODAY ONLY the -first five
women leading the procession will
carry lanterns, and each senior
will be flanked by four underclass-
men. Each class will sport its
traditional colors; the juniors will
have yellow hair bows ,the sopho-
mores red and the freshmen green.
Leading the march this year
will be Patricia McKenna, presi-
dent of the League; Mary Carolyn
Wright, chairman of the Women's
Interviewing Committee; Patricia
Hannagan, chairman of the Wo-
men's Judiciary Council; Mary
Stierer, president of the Panhel
Boprd; Arlette Harbour, president
of Assembly, and Gwen Sperlich,
president of WAA.

cial year with a picnic to be held
from 7 to 10:30 p.m. today at the
Foundation on Hill Street.
The co-chairmen of the Social
Committee, Eleanor Goldman and:
Paul Siegal, are hoping that the

a half acres of grounds surround-
ing the Foundation.-F
Movies will be shown on a
screen erected on the back wall
of the building. They will depict
the antics of cartoon characters.

antics in the form of games on
the back lawn.
Play - weary participants will
have a chance to rest while re-
freshments are served. These will
include soda, pretzels, potato chips
and other picnic foods. There will
also be a marshmallow roast to
add to the outdoor activities.
There will be dancing in the

sororities were greeted with hu-

questions as, "Which of our love-
