in a typical ballroom scene.
"SANTA'S FANTASY" is the

dance given by the Union. The
first dance was held in 1939 and
was entitled the "Jingle Ball."
Old Saint Nick was present in
all his glory with a bag full of
gifts for all who attended the
ball. The evening featured spe-

various fraternities on campus.
The Christmas ball in 1940 was
highlighted by the entertainment

A ten foot Santa Claus kept a
watchful eye over all the night

The Union executive council was
feted at a banquet preceeding last
year's dance climaxing their weeks
