Grand March Wearing
Blue Uncut Velvet i
By Elsie Pierce
The old-fashioned elegance of,
Empire styles vividly contrasted with
the sophistication of modern gowns
made the 1936 J-Hop the most bril-
liant social event of the year. The
dark blue of the ceiling decorations
provided an effective background
for the vivid colors and dainty ma-
terials. Glittering trimmings of lame
and sequins and accessories of gold
and silver reflected the maize col-
ored lights.
The climax of the evening, the
grand march, was led by Winifred
Bell, '36, and Edward Litchfield,
'36, general chairman. Miss Bell se-
lected a charming robin's egg blue
uncut velvet formal, made in the,
Empire style. It featured a short
bodice and a full skirt, with a short1
train, while the neckline was trimmed'
with a draped collar, shirred at the
front which outlined the V-neck. She
wore a rhinestone clip at the neck,
with matching earrings and bracelet.
Her shoes were white velvet, trimmed
with silver, and she wore a black vel-
vet wrap with a white lapin ascot

committee, attended with James Wil-
