another ball given, this time in college hall, formerly the old church, with

Professor Tyler hung over the stage to form a dignified featore [sic] of the Al-
umni dinner earlier in the same day held there, was left by accident in its
temporary place of honor and proved to be the only adorment [sic] of this end of
the building, from which it stared benignly down upon the "pretty pairs"
circling so madly beneath.
