Curled heads, polished nails and fragrant corsages—
all these things and more were brought to perfection
at the Underclassmen Dance last Saturday night. Toes
tripped and hoops swayed to the tunes of Paul Moore
and his N. C. State Collegians; which reminds me, did
anybody miss Seeing Kiki Long’s red velvet dream with
its hoop skirt ? They tell us none of the boys did. And
(lid you know we have a “Two Million Dollar Baby
in our midst. Gillam was enjoyed by all, thanks to oui
helpful sponsor. “Old Man Mose” and “Deep Purple”
won our applause, and speaking of purple, what about
Honey Peek’s orchid-colored dress! Thanks to our
charming Presidents for helping to put over the first
Underclassmen Dance!
