Public J-Hopper Number One And Friend

Reported In
Same Condition
Two-Steppers Are Gratified By
Lightening Of Crush Of 'Cats'
On Dance Floor.
The J-Hop is on the way out.
When the Daily went to press at
midnight it was reliably reported
that approximately 86 couples al-
ready had passed out. Indications
are, informed sources have it, that
before many hours have passed, the
rest of the J-Hoppers will be in the
same condition.
No accurate count was possible at
this time, but exhausted dancers
reaching the side-lines reported
that in doing the two-step after
midnight, their feet were stepped on
only every other step, whereas be-
fore midnight, other dancers' feet
had been beating a constant tattoo
on theirs. It was also reported re-
liably that it was possible to dance
the length of the floor after mid-
night without being jabbed in the
ribs more than ten times. A falling
off in the number of glasses of gin-
gerale spilled on white vests in the
crush around the refreshment booth
also gave evidence that the ranks
of the original 3,000 J-Hoppers had
been seriously depleted.
Basie, Busse Busy
Count Basie and Henry Busse agreed
last night. They agreed you should
have been there. For the J-Hop was
definitely the place-giving keen indi-
cation that some day-and some day
soon-the J-Hop is going to take the
place of lawn croquet for Friday night
lulls. More than 3,000 people crowded
the floor.
The Intramural Building sported the
most nicely decorated gymnasium in the
country last night. However, a rumor,
started by a horrified taxi-driver, that
the swimming pool had been converted
into a punch-bowl, could not be con-
firmed. At least University officials re-
fused to admit it.
Donald Treadwell, '40, of 'grosse
Pointe, was present, ready to lead a
grand march along with his guest, Ei-
leen Hayward, of Detroit, but the near-
est the crowd came to a formal grand
march was when the photographer was
announced. Three people were injured
in the rush to get in the front row.
As to the decorations: silver stars in
a center panel of blue gave a sky effect
to the motif. Booths were draped with
burgundy sateen trimmed in gold to
meet the columns. The columns also
met the booths. These aforementioned
columns were semi-circular instead of
the ordinary round affairs and had a
modernistic design, Wes Lane, '40, and
