will take a break and law students

approach of the Christmas season
at the Barristers' annual dance,
'Wig and Robe', to be held in the
Union Ballroom from 9 p.m. to 1
There is a, legend that goes
around about the origin of this
now traditional dance.
Seems that many years ago BLQ
(before Law Quad), a budding law
student by the name of Tommy
Tortfeaser conspired with a group
of his fellow strugglers at the
Orient, the before-blue-laws-bar.
"Forty-eight years without a
break is enough," moaned poor
Tommy, recalling all the Satur-
day nights he had studied.
He decided to take things into
his own hands and, aided by a
successful law student, one Mr.
Phogbound, future senator, Tom-
my aroused spirit in his fellows
and they organized a dance.
. Today, some many years later
the counterpart of this historic
first event is being held in the
Union by the sons of the original
Rex Smith and his band will be
on the bench to provide 'nusical
recess for the dancing couples at
the semi-formal dance.
