At Lincoln, Nebraska
Meeting for their third annual con-

yersities of the country will be repre-
sented at the sessions of the National
Student Federation of America, which
will take place at Lincoln, Neb., to-
morrow, Friday and Saturday.

Student council; and Jo Chamberlin,

been invited to speak before the con-

The federation is an outgrowth of
the Intercollegiate World Court Con-
gress which met at Princton in De-
cember, 1925. During the ensuing
year it established relations with the
International Federation of Students
and promoted European travel for
American students. It is now repre-
sented in the Confederation Inter-
nationale de Etudiants. Last summer
more than 200 students went abroad
in small groups under the auspices
of the American federation through
arrangements made by the Open Road
commission. They were received by
the national student unions, and
through this intimate contact with the
foreign student, it is felt that greater
spirit of sympathy and cooperation is
being built up. This one of the pri-
mary aims of the federation.
The federation at its first meeting
in 1925 was concerned chiefly with po-
litical questions, and the World court
held first place among these prob-
lems. At the second gathering, which
was held at the University of Michi-
gan, it was decided that these ques-
tions were so far above the practical
life of the students that small interest
could be aroused in them. Attention
was, .therefore, turned to particular
problems of student life, including col-
lege athletics, student government,
the curriculum, and the like.
These will hold the interest of the
delegates at Nebraska this year. Fra-
ternities will also be brought up for
discussion. The establishing of bonds
of friendship among the students of
the various countries, through travel
and study, will also claim attention,
being one of the foremost considera-
tions of the federation.
Miss Hawkins will present the ques-
tion of vocational guidance and' the
work of. the World Fellowship com-
mittee, as problems of interest to

A vital organization can not be
formed as long as the program is local
and only the few who actually take
part in the inter-class games are con-
cerned, according to Miss Fenwick.
The reason assigned by Miss Fenwick
for the lack of interest on the campus
as a whole in women's athletics is that
they have nothing to show for them.

en's representative to the first meet-c
ing at Princeton in 1925, said: "Many1
other countries already had such fed-
erations, which constituted organized7

ternational questions, capable of hav-x
ig considerable influence.e
"If the Federation can carry on the
purpose of educating the student bodyt
throughout the country toward ac
thoughtful opinion, and attitude one
political matters, it will have accomp-
lished a great deal. Then, too, thereI
is a voicing through the Federation ofI
the need of creating better feeling and
understanding among the students of
the world, and thereby among nations.
Whether or not this latter purpose can
be accomplished with any real re-
sults is as yet a question.
"One of the major difficulties fac-
ing the organization is its ever chang-
ing personnel, as students graduate.
It is felt, however, that once an actual
interest is awakened it will be carried
over after graduation. One of the
criticisms of the federation is its ideal-
istic nature; any organization, in ordert
to have an excuse for being, has to
have high ideals, something almost be-
yond reach," Mrs. Higley affirmed.
"But to attain these ideals, they must
French Designer Has
Trouble In Pleasing
At the Art Center, New York, there
have been on exhibition designs for
silk prints by eminent American de-
signers, illustrators, and artists. The
designs are expressions of a struggle
with dynamic decoration. Some of
them show respect for humble ele-
ments. Edward J. Steichen, photog-
rapher, for instance, scatters rice ker-
nals, or buttons and thread on a
smooth surface and then photographs
them, producing interesting designs.
Charles B. Falls uses pegs and tick-
er tape in two of his designs, and
Fifth avenue traffic is used by P. V.
Carpenter. Hollywood stars, um-
brellas in a storm viewed from a
height, Coney Island roller-coasters,
and letters of the alphabet are also
woijked into designs. John Held Jr.,
uses the instruments and players of
an orchestra in a print called Rhap-
The subject matter for these prints,
one is told, is derived from American
lie. The efforts are always interest-
ing, and in some cases successful from
the point of view of agreeable and
comparitively modest fabrics. In
cases where the patterns are too
bizarre and exaggerated for costume
silks, they take their place as histor-
Moreover these prints are publicity.

on the outlook for excessive red-tape.
"The representative should be pre-
pared to speak for the university," she
went on; "and this requires that each
campus have an organized opinion to
present. In this way the vastness of
numbers with which the Federation
must deal and the amount of territory
which must be covered in order to
reach the nation's colleges will be
overcome in a measure.
"I feel that the Open Road is one of
the Federation's finest and most suc-
cessful projects," Mrs. Higley conclud-

DESIGNS FOR SILK
PRINTS SHOW NEW
AND UNIQUE IDEAS
ByV. E. ,
American women seem to consti-
tute a Waterloo for Paul Poiret,
clothes designer par excellence. This
is because they refuse to accept any
material changes in fashions which.
the French style creator introduces.
The whole thing has been analyzed
as a question of comfort. Earlier gen-
erations of women struggled about in
long cramping, itching garments
which were too wide or too narrow in
the wrong places. When a fashion be-
came unbearable and rebellion became
acute, the style dictators would make
"changes," substituting for the ob-
jectionable style another equally un-
comfortable but uncomfortable in a
But for the last ten years or so
there have been no significant changes
in women's dress. Poiret, having es-
tablished shorts, finds it impossible to
persuade the American women to ac-
cept longs. They have, seemingly,
achieved the acme of comfort and re-
fuse to countenance any great change.
True it is that modern fashions are
attractive and becoming, but so have
all styles been-in their day. The big
fact is that the American woman,
having become accustomed to clothes
that give the greatest possible free-
dom, will not be coerced into wearing
anything that hampers her enjoyment
of life. Poiret may create and re-
create, but his patrons will have none
of it, unless he includes the big item
of comfort-comfort according to
twentieth century standards-in the
makeup of his models.
