The club derives its name from the Greek mythological muse "Terpsichore", who was the goddess of dancing and choral song. The first members were mostly freshmen and sophomores at North Carolina State College, but soon afterward the constitution provided that the membership be limited to residents of Raleigh w h o were between the ages of twenty-one and thirty-five. According to the constitution of the club, drawn in 1932, the purpose was to encourage "social activities in the city of Raleigh and the state of North Carolina, and to provide and sponsor social entertainment to such ends." As the debutantes' activities grew from a one night ball to a weekend of parties, teas, luncheons, and a second big dance, the method of having the debutantes give the ball was established. Each girl invited to make her debut made a contributon to defray expenses, and was ai- Jowed to choose one chief marshal and four assistants. This custom remained until 1956. Due to the gradual increase in the number of debutantes over the years, the number of assistant marshals was necessarily cut to two. Beginning this year the Terpsichorean Club encouraged the selection of fathers as chief marshals in order to share with debutante families their m a n y contributions in making their daughters' presentation possible. The Debutante Ball has been given every year since 1923 except the years 1942-1S46. during World War II. Because of the polio epidemic the Terpsichorean Club postponed the 1948 Ball until a few days after Christmas. This year "the Debutante Ball will" be held on September 6 and 7. and is expected to be one of the best in its history- ATTENTION BRIDES For Sunday publication, pictures of brides and brides- elect must be in the office of the woman's department of The Enterprise by noon on Tuesday.
