decide which of seven prominent

ture is most worthy to be saved,

Each person will try to convince
the audience that he is the one
who should be saved. An audience
vote at the end of the debate will'
decide the question.

Frank German, Grad., Helen of
Troy; Vincenzo Peri, Grad., Diony-
sus (Greek god of wine); Robert
McEntire, Grad., Orval Faubus;

"Society Hop." But the juniors in
1883 came back to sponsor it once
more as the "Junior Social."
In 1900 the dance had record
attendance. Before that any man
who did not ha've a date from out-
of-town would stay at home.
J-Hop was an annual affair un-
til 1913 when a group composed
"partly of students and partly of
local riff-raff" crashed the dance
causing 425 damage and injuries
to a janitor. Because of this the
1914 J-Hop was banned.
