"Around the World in Eighty Days." To many
a dream would come true if they could take a trip
around the world. It would be an experience that
would be remembered through the years.
The 1958 Junior-Senior Banquet was held Sat-
urday evening, April 19. The gym was beautifully
decorated to carry out the theme "Around the
World in Eighty Days."
The entrance was decked with many colorful
travel posters and scenic photos of national land-
marks. As the guests entered through a make-
believe balloon basket, their first glimpse was of
a globe depicting the Western Hemisphere. Blue
and white streamers bordered the entry-way and
graced the ceiling.
The center of attraction was a huge 13 foot
balloon surrounded by blue angel hair represent-
ing clouds. It represented the balloon used in the
Michael Todd Production of "Around the World
in Eighty Days."
An Oriental motif predominated the east wall
and the stage. A three-dimensional scene consist-
ing of Oriental figures adorned the stage.
The polar, Pacific Island and desert regions
were depicted on the south wall. The Aurora
Borealis made a pleasing background for the var-

of the world. The Pacific Islands were represented
by a scene from Hawaii. A volcano and a starry
sky provided the background for Hawaiian dancers
and musicians. Fruit and red leis were strewn in
island fashion in the foreground. A camel train
bordered the desert display. Camels and Arab boys
were placed near the tent in front of the distant

to France. The Eiffel Tower was silhouetted
against a Parisian landscape and reflected by a
simulated water pool dotted with gay carnations.
The Ar De Triomphe de 1" Etoile was accented by
a picturesque arrangement of flowers. The high--
light of the scene was a sidewalk cafe, the Cafe des
Quartre Magots. Cafe tables and wicker chairs
were placed on a cobblestone walk. A brick wall
and a flower cart provided the contemporary back-
ground. A red and white striped awning added an

At 10:45 P.M. the intermission program was
presented by a group of freshmen and sophomores
