EVENTFUL PAST:
Class of '57 To Present J-Hop

J-Hop, the annual dance pre-
sented by the junior class, will
mark its 79th year, as the class
of '57 takes over the affair to be
held on Friday, Feb. 10, between
semesters.
At a poll conducted during reg-
istration the orchestras of Ray
Anthony and Les Brown received
the most student votes. Repre-
sentatives of this year's J-Hop
committee are presently trying to
secure the services of these two
bands for the event.
Ron Bornstein, chairman of the
committee, said "The class of '57
is planning not only a* great
dance, but a bigger and better J-
Hop Weekend."
Tentative Plans
Tentative plans for this year's

.a

weekend include a skating party
to be held Sunday at the Coliseum
and a hay ride and square dance
to be held on Saturday night dur-
ing the weekend.
J-Hop, one of the most import-
ant social events at the Univer-
sity, features two name bands in
a one night stand. Until three
years ago the affair was held on
both Friday and Saturday eve-
nings.
Last year's dance featured the
music of Tommy Dorsey and The
Commanders. The weekend also
included a tobogganing party in
the Arboretum and a smaller
dance held on Saturday evening
at the Union.

various classes next week.
Yesterday the committee held
a mass meeting for those interest-
ed in taking the classes. At this
meeting the instructor. John Ur-
banic, was introduced to those at-
tending. Urbanic has taught at the
League dance classes for several
years.
Members of the exhibition
classes demonstrated several types
of dances for the students who
were present. Among the dances
shown were the samba, charleston,
fox-trot, mambo and tango. They
also demonstrated the latest danc-
ing rage, the cha cha cha.
Coeds interested in attending
the classes do not need to buy
tickets. They may sign up at the
entrance to the ballroom during
ticket sales.
Women may also enroll in the
classes by leaving their names and.
the time and type of class in which
they wish to participate in Jean
Underwood's box in the Under-
graduate Offices of the League.
The fall dance classes will fol-
low this schedule: Monday-ad-
vanced lessons at 7:15 to 8:15 p.m.;
exhibition group from 8:30 to 9:30
p.m.; Tuesday-singles from 7:15
to 8:15 p.m.; couples from 8:30
to 9:30; Wednesday-singles from
7:15 to 8:15 p.m., intermediate
couples from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m.
in the League Ballroom.

oftentimes bizarre history, since
it originated on Feb. 17, 1877 when
a group of students trouped down
to Hank's Emporium on South
Main to attend the first J-Hop.
The juniors continued to spon-
sor the event for the next four
years until a group of fraterni-
ties took over the dance and
promptly dubbed it the "Society
Hop.",
Juniors came back on the scene
several years later when they again
sponsored the Hop, changing the
name to "Junior Social."
Annual Event by 1891
By 1891 the dance was an an-
nual event requiring the music of
two bands. It also moved to a new
location and 300 couples waltzed at
"an old rink downtown."
About the turn of the century
it was a J-Hop custom to have
the guests received while concert
music played between 9 and 10
p.m. Then the committee chair-
man and his date would circle the
gym in a grand march until the
line was three couples deep and
a block "M" was formed. Regular
dancing then followed.
Many Coeds Present
The 1900 J-Hop boasted the
unique feature of having a "large
number of university coeds {pres-
ent-more than at any previous
hop." A total of 250 couples at-
tended the dance, but coeds were
extremely unpopular dates in those
days. Most men imported dates
from "back home."
In the past as in the present,
J-Hop was a signal for a week-
end of gaiety which included such
events as a play by the Comedy
Club, fraternity house parties and
concerts.
A riot occurred in 1913 when the
committee decided to discontinue
the practice of letting spectators
sit in the gallery. The midnight
riot was led by 50 "toqued" (tipsy)
students and townspeople.
An ensuing battle with fire ex-
tinguishers resulted in $25 dam-
age to the gym.
Past J-Hops have featured such
themes as "Artistry in Orchid,"
"Atlantis" and "Bali Hai" which
had a South Sea Island motif.
