Military Ball has one of the
longest histories of any event on
campus.
Begun in 1918
Started in #1918 by ROTC and
NROTC units, it was discontinued
during World War II, but was
revived afterwards.
It' is sponsored jointly by the
four ROTC units on campus: the
Army, Navy, Air Force and Mar-
ines. In 1951, the Army ROTC
Pershing Riflemen demonstrated a
precise drill formation under gun,
which meant that they presented
an exhibition of the positions of
the rifle.
A 15-foot model rocket ship
highlighted the 1954 Ball, while
last year's theme was of a medieval
castle.

Named After Symbol
The name of the dance, Chan-

At last year's Chancellor's Court,
d-orations featured balloons with

Annual Senior Night dinner and
program festivities, honoring grad-
uating women, will be held Thurs-
day at the League.
Until 1935, a senior supper was
held in Betsy Barbour. Coeds,
clothed in caps and gowns, parad-
ed to Waterman Gymnasium to
preview Junior Girls' Play.
When the Union was completed,
senior suppers were held there,
while the shows were presented at
the old Whitney Theatre on Main
Street.
Held in Ballroom
Beginning in 1936 and up to the
present, the traditional dinners
have been held in the Ballroom of
the League.
Graduating coeds take full ad-
vantage of their senior status by
requesting jepeat performances of
any JGP song, dance or scene
they particularly enjoyed.
Such customs as throwing pen-
nies, confetti, gumdrops and other
sticky materials were tabooed in
1938.
Discontinued During War
Although seniors were still in-
vited to attend the JGP produc-
tion, the suppers were discontinued
during the war.
In 1949 Senior Supper was
changed to Senior Night.
Beginning at 5:30 p.m., the
Senior Night program starts with
the seniors participating in a tra-
ditional march from the Main Li-
brary to the League. After the
parade, a banquet is served in their
honor in the ballroom.
