Lucy and Snoopy, sporting an "I

Second place standing was
awarded to Betsy Barbour and

Traditional Festivities Liven
Coeds' Senior Night Agenda

One evening a year, senior wom-
en gather for the traditional fes-
tivities of the Senior Night dinner
and program.
This event dates back to 1933
when a senior supper was held in
Betsy Barbour dormitory. After
dinner, coeds clothed in caps and
gowns, paraded to Waterman gym-
nasium to see the new show pre-
sented for them by junior women.
When the union was completed,
senior suppers were held in the
new building. The ensuing show
was at that time held in the old
Whitney Theatre on Main Street.
Traditional Dinners Held
Starting in 1936, and continuing
to the present time, traditional
dinners have been held in the
During the war years, the Senior
Supper was discontinued, although
seniors were still invited to attend
the first production of Junior
Girl's Play.
Senior Supper became Senior
Night in 1949 with the traditional
march from the library to the
League starting at 5:30 p.m. Fol-

lowing the parade, a banquet is
served in the League Ballroom.
Romantic Status
At the dinner, each senior wom-
an bears a sign of her romantic
status. A married coed carries a
candle, and those who are engaged
suck lemons.
A pin cushion especially made
by Miss Ethel McCormick, Social
Director of the League, holds safe-
ty pins which a pinned coed must
wear instead of the traditional
fraternity pin. Every senior night,
the general chairman inscribes her
name on the cushion at the end
of the ceremony.
Unattached coeds carry pennies
to toss in a wishing well, one for
each year of their age.
After the dinner, the seniors see
a preview of the JGP production,
presented in their honor by the
junior women in the Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre.
In 1938, the custom of throwing
pennies was tabooed. In previous
years the seniors wore caps and
gowns but due to the increase of
the garments in price the custom
was dropped in 1952.
