10 BROOKLYN LIFE Yule Tide Ball , 1 At 3 o'clock last Wednesday evening, December 26th, . or, to be more exact, Thursday ' morning, taxis were crowded around the Heights Casino, and a large proportion of the stag line were still waiting for their hats and coats, This, as the dance ended at 2 o'clock, was in itself an unusual thing and serves as proof of the enormous crowd that was present. The Yule Tide ball - is an annual affair given by the Ways and Means Com-mittee of the Brooklyn Free Kindergarten Association. Although it is always successful, this last ball was notable. An illuminated Christmas tree was the chief - decoration, while from a far corner of the balcony, a spot light played upon the dancers. . , 1 The receiving line included Mrs. Frederic B.
