In the T.O.O.J hall on the night of December 22, 1921 there assembled about 175 freshman and sophomores for their annual reception.
The hall was beautifully decorated in the color of both classes which were red and black for sophomores and marron and white for freshmen.
Throughout the evening games were played including rook and other card games. Victrola music was enjoyed by those who could get near enough to hear, and at an appointed time the lights were turned low and in came Santa amid shouts of delight and anticipation from the freshmen. He went to a tree which was standing at one end of the room and which was laden with gifts and began to distribute various parcels and packages to the delighted guests.
Shortly after the gifts were all given out delicious refreshments were served consisting of sandwiches, salad, pickles, and cocoa.
At a late hour all departed in high glee.
We all had a good time. The best thing in the evening was Derb McReynolds jig dancer. Of course we all enjoyed the ice cream and cake.
