r Christmas Dance of Sterling Club i
l Given Monday Night Decem
ber 26 at Trimbles Hall
In the opinion of nil present
I Monday night the dance given by
the Sterling Dancing Club was i
the most beautiful ever given i in
this city
The hall was decorated in south
1ern smilax and poinsetta the hen
utiful Chinese Christmas flower
and while the hall has looked
beautiful before these decorations
1ilatr surpassed anything ever seen 1
there before and certainly showed I
the artistic temperment of the
decorators Mr and Mrs Clarence
Leach of Lexington who were
j k engaged by the club for the work
J The walls ceiling and the posts i
1 through the center of the hall I I
t were draped with the smilax and I
the point setta tastefully arranged I
throughout their rich color show
ing the great advantage among
the green smilax
r The grand march was the most
r ricate and elaborate one ever
empted here and the figures
yore executed skillfully and grace
fully evoking rounds ofjjapplause
I from the interested spectators
It would bo impossible in mere
words to express the beauty of
I the ladies it would take an artists
pen to picture the separate and
distinct charm of each one of
them As one young man ex
pressed it I have been ton great
many dances where there were
beautiful women but the girls
here tonight certainly are dreams I
This is the first dance given n
under the new officers and too I
I much credit cannot be given Pres
L A Judy Vice President T P
Sutton and Secretary T B Rob
ertson for their untiring efforts to I
make this dance the huge success
it was There was nothing miss
ing or lacking every little detail
Y tbeing attended to The programs I
had the monogram of the Club in
gold on the cover while the in I
side sheet in steel blue gave a list
of officers chaperons and floor
committee besides ft complete list
iof the music Saxton Trost listI I
Lexington furnished the music 1
There were about forty couples
in the grand march Among the
visitors were Misses Ellen Kirk of
Maysville Marguerite Jurey of
Pcwce Valley Ellen Shauklin of
