gin with the traditional line of

nate at 7 p.m. in front of Alum-
ni Memorial Hall and will end
on the steps of Hill Auditorium.
A huge block 'M', composed of
27 coed campus leaders, will march
directly in back of the band.
BEHIND THEM, in four lines,
will be the honored seniors, wear-
ing blue bows, and the junior

men will wear red and green bows,
respectively, to distinguish them
from the upperclassmen.
Each coed is asked to purchase
her own ribbon.
The parade will be held unless
there is a rainstorm. If the weath-
er is doubtful, participating houses
are asked to call Abbie Funk or
Nancy Fitch to determine if the
procession is to take place.

evening's main event, the Lantern
Night Sing, will be held in Hill
Auditorium. Choral groups from
various women's groups on cam-
pus will take part in this program
of vocal competition.

These Lantern Night festivi-
ties are an outgrowth Of a pro-
gram which originated in 1913.
Then all coeds took part in
races and various other events at
a women's field day at Palmer
Field. Later each class presented
a special group of stunts.
IN 1932 the first line of march
was held, with the procession tak-
ing place around Palmer Field.
From this parade came* the
tradition of Japanese lanterns
and hoops, and from this the
name, Lantern Night, originated.
At that time the seniors car-
ried the lanterns in the line of
march and the junior caried hoops,
through- which the freshmen

ning's fun the seniors gave their
lanterns to the juniors, while the
