The first Ruthven Tea was held
in 1930, after President Ruthven

teas were given by the President
and his wife for five years before
the League began sponsoring them.

IN 1935, the League Social Com-
mittee organized and took charge
of the teas. Since that year the
members of the committee have
served as hostesses at the teas to
introduce students to President
and Mrs. Ruthven. The hostesses
also serve as guides for a tour of
the President's home.
Since then bimonthly teas
have been held and have become
popular with the students. Spe-

LANTERN NIGHT as it has
come to be known on campus, is

field day on Palmer Field, and
all coeds took part in various
races and other events. Later
class stunts were participated
The first line of march took
place around Palmer Field in 19-
