Promenade Is Headed
By Marietta Killian
And Robert Reid
Marietta Killian and Robert Reid,
patrons and general chairmen, re-
spectively, had the floor well under
control as they led the 1938 J-Hop in
a continuous grand tour around
the dance floor Friday night. The
aforementioned march ended in a
triumphant flurry of ticker tape and
gilt-edged securites before the official
Miss Killian's dress, incorporated
from her own design, was made of
white silk net over taffeta with a fullj
skirt. A distinctive feature of the1
gown was the narrow satin ribbon
which was applied in vertical bands
the entire length of the dress, and the
braided satin belt. The two net pieces
forming the bodice were softly gath-
erd at the waist in front, crossed at
the back of the neck, and joined the
waistline in the back. The exquisite
simplicity of her gown was carried
out in her accessories also: a white
net butterfly worn in her hair, and
white satin slippers. Miss Killian wore
no jewelry.
John Collins, secretary of the J-
Hop committee, escorted Virginia
Voorhees, '39. Miss Voorhees' evening
gown was deep coral chiffon with a
dramatic full-length cape. The dress
itself was made in the fitted style-
the bodice closely tucked over the
hips, and a flaring skirt-with rib-
bon shoulder straps. Silver accessor-
ies touched off her lovely outfit.
