Xtarlan L. Welles, '28, 1Iepresentative
At 1926 Convention, Gives Conm-
ment On Federatlon'sAims
"When the National Student Federa-
tion of America met here last De-
cember, a striking change was made
in its program from that of its first
meeting at Princeton in 1925. Recog-
nizing that'fact that the national and
international political problems which
it had considered at the first confer-
ence were so far above the practical
life of the average student as to hold
little interest for him, they scheduled
fqr discussion the more vital ques-
tions, to the students at least, of col-
lege athletics, student government,
the curriculum, and the like," affirm-
ed Marian L. Welles, '28, who was the
women's representative at the confer-
ence last year.
"It was hoped that the studentl
would be awakened to a realization of
the existence of these problems, and'
the need for serious thought and ac-
tion. I felt, however, that they were
not getting very far," Miss Welles con-
One of the difficulties which hinder-
ed the organization from becoming an
efficient working unit, according to
Miss Welles, is the actual territory,
which it must, almost of necessity,
take under its scope. Another objec-
tion is found in the fact that few of

"Black satins will be very good for
'1ing; wear," according to Miss Irene
Ilohlenkamp, who has just returned
from New York. where she goes ev-
ery season to personally select the
dresses for Mack and company. "They
are decorated with brilliant pins, in
arrows and various other shapes, and
with lace of either black or cream
color. Drapes are used to a large ex-
"Suits will be popular, espec.ally in
the light colors. Tweeds and kasha
are almost entirely in light colors,
and twill in navy. White satin vestees
will be worn with the suits, in, place
of waists. Coats are in straight, tail-
ored lines, with and without fur col-
lars. Kasha is here again, in the
light colors. Some will be made with
an ombre effect, of kasha and tweed
material," Miss Hohlenkamp went on.
"In dresses, there is no particular
neck line, as yet, although some col-
larless neck lines have been used.
Circular skirts are good. Ensembles
are in both silk and wool. Some are

short. Where the coat is full length,
there may be a one piece dress with
it, if not, a skirt and waist. T'he wrap
and dress combination is especially
good this year.-
"Beads and sequins are being much
used on evening gowns. In both eve-
ning gowns and dinner gowns, uneven
hem lines and drapes are common.
Most of the dinner gowns have low
V necks. Lace and chiffon, and taffe-
ta in the bouffant style, decorated
with tulle, are the most popular of
the evening dresses.
"Hosiery will be light. At present
gun metal is popular as it always is
during the galosh season.
"Lacy things will be very good, and
lace is used in combination with
georgette especially. All colors will
be used, but especially pastels, biege,
navy, and black, as far as has been
yet decided. Prints will be common,
especially "talk-of-the-town," a n d
Indian tribe prints which represent
scenes, and are similar to the Western
park scenes used a year ago," Miss
Hohlenkamp concluded.
