hy Youngsters Go To J-Hops Olsen
In Only One Easy Quotation A

EDITOR'S NOTE: Mr. Fuller is, na-
turally, not to be held responsible for
the following interview, which is in
line with our policy of sensationalizing
the news through false quotations.
Why is the J-Hop?
Commenting on this question from
a sociological angle, Richard Fuller of
the sociology department last night
said: "Yes."
Mr. Fuller pointed out that defi-
nite sociological motives, to say noth-
ing of psychological motives, have
definite effects on J-Hops. Financial
motives, incidentally, he inferred,
also have definite effects on these
For instance, why does one go to a
Three Categories
Mr. Fuller said he didn't know. He
offered the suggestion, however, that
there might be three classes of per-
sons who attend the J-Hop.
These are: (1) Those who like to
be seen there and have their names
in The Daily; (2) Those who can find
no other way to hold girls in their
arms; (3) Others. This last category
is largely made up, The Daily was
informed by reliable sources, of Gov-
ernor Murphy and the few members
of the faculty who do not fall into
groups one and two.
(Those persons who actually and
honestly like to dance, as everybody
knows, do not attend the Hop, so Mr.
Fuller naturally excluded them from
his classification).
Thus having disposed of the soci-
ological aspects of the problem, Mr.
Fuller, slowly puffing his pipe, turned
his attention to political considera-
tions. Although refusing to say defi-
nitely whether the J-Hop falls in
conservative or liberal ranks, he

I-lines Play
(Continued from rage 1)
swing pianists, was the rhythmical
center of attention together with the
electric guitar and organ which fea-
ture Olsen's 'music of tomorrow."
Simple and sophisticated decora-
tions transformed the gymnasium
into a beautiful ballroom. A modern,
semi-classical trend borrowed from
Europe dominated the scene.
Soft Light Floods Room
Booths around the edge of the
dance floor were set apart by tow-
ering silver columns. Booth decora-
tions were in light blue. The ceiling;
amber-colored near the booths, melt-
ed into duskiness above the center
of the floor. At the east end of
the ballroom four dancers were de-
picted in large panels.
Lighting was indirect, flowing from
canopies above each booth, and re-
flecting large stars hung above the
panels at each end of the hall.
Henry W. Ruifrok, '38A, Saginaw,
headed the decorations committee.
From the arrival of the first couples
at 10 p.m. the two bands played con-
tinuously, alternating in 30-minute
periods-Earl Hines on the north side
and George Olsen opposite.
Dignitaries Numerous
Couples poured into the ballroom
in a steady stream, coming from
house parties and formal dinner
dances. With the beginning of the
Grand March the gymnasium was
packed to capacity.
The patrons' booth was crowded
with more than 200 dignitaries, Uni-
versity administrators, faculty mem-
bers, and parents of committee mem-
