The second annual military ball of the Ann Arbor Light Ioiantry held in the armory Tuesday evening was one of the most successful social events of the year. The arinory was handsomely and tastefully decorated with buntitig and the llags of different nations suspended and entwined together, making a pretty display in the intermingling of the bright colors. Music lor the occasion was furnished by the Ohequamegou Lirass band and orches,ra. The program coniprised 20 regular nimbéis and innumerable eztras durng the time that refreshments were aeing served. The arrangement tor serving the refreshments was a new one and it worked well. The programs were numbered in live sections with 20 couples in each section and as the numbers werecalled each section went in turn to supper. At 8:3a p. m. the bugle sounded the assembly and in place of the usual grand maren the guests of the comaany were entertained íor a brief perod with an inspection and drill of the eompany. After the command to 'break ranks" had been given and the soldier boys had doffed their accoutrements the programs were handed around and in a very few minutes the strains of the tirst waltz were lieard and soon all were enjoying themselves to the utmost. String music was given tor the waltzes and the brass band alayed the two steps and lanciers. It was after 3 a. m. when the last waltz ended and the seeond military ball of Co. A was a thing of the past, but ;hose who were there vote it one of :he best parties they ever attended.
