The Law Ball

The Law Ball.

This very enjoyable dance was held at the St. Francis Hall on Friday the 21st August. Some three hundred people attended with the Hon. Mr. Justice Smith and Mrs. Smith as host and hostess.

The Hon. Sir John Reed, C.B.E. (acting Chief Justice) and Lady Reed, Mr. P. B. Cooke, K.C., and Mrs. Cooke, Mr. D. Perry (President of the Wellington Law Society) and Mrs. Perry and many others were included in the official party.

The orchestra was good and each dance bore some more or less appropriate legal litle, viz: a "Paul Jones" was entitled "Judicial Separation" and a slow fox trot "The Bankrupt's Backslide."

An excellent sit-down supper was served.

There was unfortunately no bar ... officially. Our old friend the Commissionaire was in attendance medals and all. Who said he was teetotaller?

A popular feature of the evening was the vividly costumed Florentine Ballet which had previously performed with such success at the Plunket Ball.

Altogether an enjoyable evening for which the Ball Committee. comprising Messrs. R.S.C. Agar, A. R. Perry, R. S. V. Simpson and J. C. White are to be complimented.
