J-lop Parade Of 1937 'Father's' Singer Olsen, Father' Hines
Shows Colorful Dress Provide Dance Music
By MARY WlLLIAMS The 1937 J-Hon became an event

Youth and beauty were plentiful at
the ball last night with gorgeous girls
vying with gorgeous gowns to attract
the attention of the numerous swains
with which the place was swarming.
From our seat among the patrons we
could hardly tear our eyes away from
the colorful panorama before us to

The 3,000 dancers, the largest num-
ber ever to attend a J-Hop, were led
in the Grand March at 11 p.m. yester-
day by Louis G. Hoffman, general
chairman, Glencoe, Ill., and Frances
Odell, '38, Highland Park.
Earl "Father" Hines and George
Olsen were there to fill the vast gym-
nasium with music that was both
sweet and hot until the year's biggest
party broke up shortly before 3 a.m.
and the throng dispersed for break-
fast and sleep.
