Rhapsody in the Style of Blue Dominoe

Rhapsody in the Style of Blue Dominoe

Recently a number of young people gathered in the University Tramping hut in the Southern Tararuas to celebrate the coming of age of one of the members of the Club, Bruce Popplewell. Brace's parents were unable to attend and hostess duties for the evening were assumed by Miss Helen Thompson and Miss Judith Elwin.

A novel note was struck by having the seating arrangements in two stories around the fire, and also by the serving of a delightful stew, indeed an unusual venture.

For the occasion Bruce wore a charming creation in two-tone (mud and otherwise).

A number of the young people went for a stroll along the picturesque banks of the Tauherenikau River, and enjoyed the lovely starlight night.

Well known New Zealand folk songs were sung by Messrs. Prebble, Prebble and McCann. A delightful exhibition of ballet was given by Miss Leslie McLauchlan.

Others present included Cedric and students who wish to remain anonymous.
