A member of the ticket committee for the annual charity ball
With sweet chariy as the underlying
motive about fifteen hundred of Salt I
Lakes wealthiest patrons and patron
esses graced the annual charity ball at
Odeon hall last night assuring a ftnanr
cial success for the annual venture ae
well as a tremendous social triumph
Society in ultragay bedirenment
spent hours in fullest enjoyment of an
affair for which the fair sex had spent
weeks of preparation Gowns of costly
fabric and richest hue draped the forms
of Utahs fairest women diadems in
waving coiffure or encircling fair
throats sparkled a radiance across an
everhanging vista of color iridescent
lights cast a soft glow from the great
dome upon a moving throng while the
strains of sweet music lulled the danc
ers in the waltz or quickflied them in
the twostep this was the spectacle of
the charity ball at its height
This picture with a background of
stars and stripes festoons of greens and
drapings of color set here and there
with clusters of roses showed the
artists touch The gayest throng that
ever attended a charity ball made that
affair a wholesome success last night
Coming from all directions through
the snow autos and cabs and other ve
hicles brought hundreds to the door of
the great hall With the arch of lights
set against a background of windowed
color it presented a pretty sight The
chill of winter dissipated m the warmth
of the hall and inside the very limit of
enjoyment was reached
Cause Not Forgotten
To one who passed from the garish
light of the street into the charming
circle of merrymakers the thought
that these people came together to do
homage to charity seemed to rise far
above the thought that they consid
ered the affair a medium for the display
of costly garments and to compete for
highet honors Jr dress The great heart
of humanity I > tit a rhythmic accompa

another year
Aside from the decorations about the
ballroom the lower rooms of the
building were adorned with cut flowers
and in the supper room scores of tables
were set for the dancers and here too
the women who arranged the affair
lavished roses carnari ns and chrys
The great floor was filled with danc
ers and above in the balcony hun
dred of persons were content to watch
without participating The orchestra
enlarged for the occasion kept the in
terest of dancers at Its height and yet
there was diversion aplenty for those
who did not dance Below the ladies
had considerately arranged one of the
rooms for card games and again a
room for conversation and informal
gatherings Everything that came with
in the purview of prearrangement
seemed to have been thought of In time
and no detail was lacking in any of the
Those who enjoyed the affair but
who had little to do with Its prepara

fair manager To tio executive com
mittee is du < > a gnat deal of credit
