viting all the members of the .lab. the un
IcrgrnduateF and Yale alumni of town, and
an equal number of St. I.ouis girls of the
younger and older sets. Dancing did not
begin until the close of the concert, which
was about hair after 10. and continued only
until mldnlcIiT. A supper followed in tho
dining-rooms across tlie ball.
Mr. and Mrs. Potter received with their
sons. Henry R. Potter. Jr.. and Ciarks.m
Potter, who are in tho junier and senior
classes at Yale. The daiiclng-room was
trimmed with holly and Christmas gre-ns.
and by reason of 'he short length or tlm"
for dancing this proved one of tlie jolllest
ball or th season, much m.iriment being
crowd. d into one hour or two.
Among the town guests were-
