VARSITY BALL X HE " great god Bud " gazed down from dreamy half-shut eyes on the Washington men and women who danced about an an- cient Chinese pagoda at the Varsity Ball on December 4. The affair was held in the Civic Auditorium. A huge ball made of tiny chips of mirror hung in the front of the auditorium, reflect- ing the glow of three flare lights, and throw- ing white dots of light on the dark ceiling like stars on a midnight sky. Chairmanned by Jack Travis, the ball was known as " The Shrine of Buddha. " The at- mosphere of the ancient mystic Orient was carried out in decorations of huge lanterns, throwing weird shadows of dragons on the dancers. Couples met beside panels that bore the names of Chinese cities, painted in orien- tal lettering. Refreshments were cookies in the shape of Chinese pagodas, and punch made by an oriental recipe and served by Chinese girls in native costume. During the first intermission, a Chinese maiden danced on a platform, constructed on the folded hands of the thirty-five foot statue of Buddha. Second intermission marked the naming of twenty-eight pledged to Oval Club, senior men ' s activity honorary. Prof. Edmond S. Meany called the names and pinned the pur- ple and gold ribbons on each lapel, while the newly pledged men were greeted by two rows of Oval Club members who stood below the platform of the pagoda. 174
