witnessed many a financial battle
-financial in respect to ticket
prices, riot damages and private
detective fees.
The monetary ups and downs
began back in the ninetiesdwhen
the "Junior Social" was being held
at an "old rink downtown," and
later on at Granger's Dancing
Academy. A $1 admittance price
was established to permit couples
to dance to the music of two
FROM THE Academy, the dance
proceeded to Waterman Gymna-

of "Annual Ball."
During 'the following years,
the dance traveled from Water-
man Gym to Toledo and back
again. It remained in the Gym
until within the past decade or *
two when it moved to its present
site in the IM Bldg.
Finances still figured promi-
nently in J-Hop festivities when a
1913 riot resulted in $25 damage
to the gymnasium. The same riot
caused the dismissal of an intern
accused of hitting the janitor.
