HALL SCENE OF All-Gi- rl when last ment Association, aasisted by the Y. s of the W. C. A. entertained the dormitories in a last party before the Christmas holidays. The hall was charming in the profuse decorations betokening the Yule-tid- e season, and made a charging background for the program and stunts of the evening. The six corridors in charge of their respective protectors put on stunts, which due to cleverness and originality shown by they proved to be very Interesting and the source of great merriment. Toward the middle of the evening the lights were turned off and the Y. W. C. A. choir entered in a processional, carrying white candles and singing Christmas carols. Two duets sung by Louise Will and Sallie Bruns, and Margaret Smith and Carlisle Chenault furnished the other Christmas music. One of the most interesting features of the evening, however, were the delightful Christmas stories related in a most engaging way by Dean Simrall. Refreshments of ice cream cones and Christmas candy were served. The guests included all' Patt. Hall, Smith Hall and Maxwell Hall girls, town members of the Y. W. C. A., members of the Advisory Board, and other friends of the association.
