Brecky Club Holds Halloween Dance Appropriate Decorations Lend Atmosphere of Enchantment ; Dtoghmrts and Cider Served Witches and goblins havb may e een stalking without , but inside the gymnasium on Saturday night , November 2 , the Brecky Club dance made gay with music and fantastic step . The formal Tuxedo rubbed elbows with costumes from more than one trunk upstairs , and now and then with an unassuming plain white shirt . All in all , it looked very much like a Halloween party . Orange and black streamers , with now and then a lantern peeking through at discreet intervals , formed the overhead .

For a brief space of time neither side gave way , then Johnson of the frosh began to skid into the muddy path of the hose . After that , all was up for the dinks —each succeeding tugger skidded into that wet barrier until at last Weeks , the last man , slid through in a more or less supine position . The teams gave their respective yells , the multitudes dispersed , and the tug-of-war was over for another year . However , a postdiluvial specta...
