"Dutch" Walen and a nlne-plecel orchestra will delight the dancers with the new ?tyle of popular music. Th% roof will be made Into a wonderful Varden?a regular fairyland, with decorations and attractions that will daatle. The committee seems to believe! that It would be better not to give tout any further Information as to Y favors, decorations and any other features. It has been decided thai the senior prom will be exclusively an affair for the graduating class and s>me of the alumni. Inaamuch as the prom ia a senior affair, it was decides to allow none below the eighth semester to purchase tickets. \ Notices regarding the specific ar rangements are being sent t\> every member of the senior class. Tickets will be sold through the corfrnlttee and the class officers only. \ The Bulletin and Review staf* will i be given a banquet by the dhhool I Friday evening. June 2.

"?he I affair will take place about 7 o'clolk in the lunchroom. The scene will resemble a banquet hall, a large table being arranged in the shape of \ "C." Martin White Is the generaa chairman of the committee to make) the arrangements. Miss Roblnette is P the faculty representative on this committee. The two staffs, to show that they appreciate the value of such an affair, and to make It a real success, are arranging a varied program, some what In the style of the famous Grid iron Club dinners. With the help of Mies Robinette and Miss Murray the people are planning stunts, take-offs, toasts, other amusing numbers and a few serious talks to make the even ing well divided. The menu itself will play no small part In contribut ing to every one's enjoyment* TECH HIGH SCHOOL. The class of June. '22. at Tech is giving a play on class night in lieu of the exercises which generally grace the last social activity of the school year. This course was decid ed upon as the best possible, because It would seem unfair If only a few member? ?f a class could participate in the exercises, especially when there is so much dramatic talent to ,be utilized. The play Is Lady Gregory's "The Dragon." a fairy fantasie in three acts. The scene is laid in the palace of an old Irish king, representing a long time ago In the days when people still believed In fairies. The cast Includes some of the school's popular dramatic favorites. Phil Holmes has the title role. Oth ers are Lelght Barber. Laurp. Vander cook, Alison Denison, Catherine Mat thews and Tennyson Myers. Some regret was expressed when it was discovered that neither Oscar Shaw nor Max Walten. both of whom held principal parts in the spring play, were not to take part in the play.' This play is the last distinctive ef fort of a class which has since it was first organized endeavored to make Itself stand out from other classes. The Shakespearian pageant, writ ten by Miss Sarah Simons, head of the English department, was given by Tech last Thursday. Those who played leading roles were: Denison. as Shakespeare; James whisman, as Touchstone; Ruth Russel, as the Shrew, and Lelght Barber, as Pe truchlo. The pageant was a combination of short scenes from some of Shakes peare's comedies. It was titled a "Fantasy of Mockery and Mirth" and lived up to its title in every way. EASTEBN HIGH SCHOOL. Eastern enjoyed one of the most spirited assemblies of the year Tues day. The purpose of the assembly was not only to encourage the stu dents any team* for the game with Western, but also to present, unoffi cially, the new colors of the 3d Regi ment of the Cadet Corps. The ceremony, while Informal and unofficial, was most impressive. The colonel of the High School Cadet Corps, Oscar Shaw of McKlnley, pre sented the banner to Lieut. Co I. Anna dale of the 3d Regiment. Thanks were extended to Mr. and Mrs. Saug stad, who undertook the making of the standard, and a pair of silver can dlesticks also was presented them as a token of the appreciation of the 3d Regiment. CoL Craigle, military instructor of the Cadet ?orps, also spoke, expressing encouragement for an Increase of enlistments for next year. Lieut. Tater, 3d Regiment in structor, made an address confirming . CoL Cralgie's hopes for an entire regl v' ment . at Eastern next year. Mlsa Alice Deal, CapL Johnson, Frank C. Daniel and Mlaa Rebecca Shanley ^Another assembly was held Wednes day, In celebration of the Tlctorj over Western. Excitement over the "win" was MiMeially vtrkcd. Bar* G. Joniher and Mr. Bowles ofthe alumni association outlined PJ<*n* for the alumni excursion P?rtj. which will take place June 1# at Marshall ] Hall, and which, according to plans,, will be the largest affair of its kind ever undertaken by the school. The Merrill Club girls of Eastern High School have added considerably to their "shack budget." On Fridav and Saturday. May 19 and 20asuc cessCul (financially and dramatically) | vaudeville entertainment was staged. The program was divided into two parts, the first being given by the "P. M.," or afternoon chapter, ana the second by the "A. M." chaPter The "P. M." giris made a great hit with their Russian dance and eastern navy. The costumes in both were very effective. The Russian dancers followed a black and white color scheme relieved with bright sashes, while the rollicking navy girls wore white middies with black ties, white skirts and white sailor hats. The girls were ably led by Edna Horner and Isabel McQhan, who did the. Sailors' hornpipe. The A. M. girls' main feature was a schoolroom scene. All the girls were dressed as little children ana sang amusing kindergarten songs. An absurdity in two acts entitled "Love Will Find a Way" also was pre sented. Mildred Boynton. Mildred Carroll and Ruth Perkina starred in the schoolroom scene. A few Eastern boys were called upon to contribute to the program. Between acts Leigh James and John Voegler entertained the audience with songs. Mary Kirby and Raymond Hutchinson were very amusing In the song. "A Baby In Love." "Three CClock in the Morning." as sung by Phoebe Atkinson and George Galla horn was an added attraction. Ru belle Blanton gave a dance to the "Spring Song," sung by Anna King. This was regarded the most suc cessful play ever given by the club. With the large sum of money made, the purchase of a shack is now al most a reality. WESTEKN HIGH SCHOOL.

In base ball he is a good batter and can play almost any position, his forte being catching. In basket ball his play has featured nearly every game Dunbar has played. A fine shot, excellent guard and center, he should have no difficulty making his alma i mater team no matter where he goes. \ In track Drew has broken all rec ords for the running high Jump by leaping 5 feet* 10 inches at the recent Hampton meet, thereby setting a mark that has never been reached by any high school athlete in the Dis trict of Columbia and which, it is be lieved. would win him a place right now in most college meets.
