Senior Women
To Wear Garb
Of Graduation
Vocal Groups To Vie
For Winners' Awards
Senior women, robed in their
caps and gowns, will be honored
Monday; May 15, in the annual
Lantern Night tradition.
The main event of this 37th
Lantern Night program will be the
singing competition between chor-
al groups from the women's resi-
dences. The winning chorus will
be awarded the first place cup,
won last year by Mosher Hall.-.
THIS YEAR, however, elimina-
tions are being held and only 13
groups will sing instead of the
large number of entries in past
years. The eliminations, will be
1held from 7 to 10 p.m. Monday in
the Hussey Room of the League.
The newly inaugurated award
for posture will be judged Mon-
day while the groups are parti-
cipating in the eliminations.
This will give every group a
chance to receive the award even
A if they don't sing in the regular
Lantern Night program.
The posture cup, which was giv-
" en for the first time in 1948, is now
held by Pi Beta Phi. The cup will
be awarded Lantern Night to the
winning group.

begin with the traditional march
to Hill Auditorium. All women stu-
dents are to line up at 6:45 p.m.
in front of Angell Hall. The Michi-
gan Marching band will lead the
parade around the original 40
acres of the campus and finally
end on the "mall" in front of the
According to the tradition, the
seniors will wear caps and
gowns; junior women are to
have yellow hair bows distin-
guishing them from the sopho-
mores wearing red bows and the
freshmen who will wear green
hair bows.
Strangely enough, Lantern Night
is an out-growth of a program
which originated in 1913 and was
a women's field day on Palmer
Field. All coeds participated in
y various races and events. Gradual-
ly class stunts took the spotlight.
The first line of march took place
around Palmer Field in 1932.
WITH THIS IDEA of a parade
came the tradition of Japanese
Lanterns and hoops and thus the
name'Lantern, Night originated.
It was the custom of the day
for all the seniors to carry Jap-
anese lanterns in the procession.
At the same time, juniors car-
ried hoops through which the
freshmen jumped
At the close of the program, the
senior lanterns were given to the
juniors while the hoops were pass-
ed on to the sophomores.
The school has grown since
then and now all that is left of the
lantern tradition is the carrying of
lanterns by the seniors who head
the line, of march.
