Two hundred eager applicants for tickets to the first dance were unable to obtain admission. These "rationed" ii^terallied dances, designed especially for the edification and delight of young officers on leave in London, are smiled upon by the military autliorit.ies, a numhier of whom were present at the first. There were a hundred hostesses, many prominent in' English society, including Lady Randolph Churchill. American army and navy officers almost outnumbered British and French. One-ateps and t.7o-step8, which some Londoner.s refer to as "American stutter dances," alternated with the more'sedate waltzes. Two women police were there as chaper-ones, but they had little to do. Lady Randolph Churchill told a reporter that introductions, made by the official hostesses, were to be a feature of the dance."!. Single tickets are not to be sold to women or girls. "Can it be," one commenter asked, that this suddeuL resuscitation of dancing under the patronage of tho authorities is a foretaste of the reaction that will follow the strain and anxiety of tho war and fill the laud with laugh-tei'.
