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-

and sequins and accessories of gold 1
and silver reflected the maize col-

The climax of the evening, the
grand march, was led by Winifred
Bell, '36, and Edward Litchfield,
'36, general chairman. Miss Bell se-

with matching' barrings and bracelet.
