Theatre has affected a change of
policy according to Mrs. Grace B.

Dean of Women's Staff Explains
Work of Chaperones;
Tea Follows.
Chaperones from dormitories and
sororities and league house heads
were entertained by the staff of the
dean of women's office at an infor-
mal meeting followed by a tea at
3:30 o'clock Wednesday afternoon
in the Grand Rapids room at the
This meeting is held annually in
order to acquaint the new chaper-
ones with the work of the dean of
women's office, and to show them
how they can best cooperate in the
interests of the women students.
Various members of the staff ex-
plained their work. Miss Jeanette
Perry discussed university loans
and student funds, and Mrs. Byrl
F. Bacher announced the rules
governing university women's at-
tending out of town games. Chap-
erones were asked to be even more
careful this year about being cer-
tain that the women had letters of
consent from home as the dean of
women wishes the responsibility for
the trip to rest with the parents.

Two Auditions Necessary Before
Candidates Can Become
Members of Club.
Tryouts for Comedy Club, dram-
atic society, will be held next Tues-
day and Thursday. All women on
campus are eligible except fresh-
men, and transfers unless the lat-
ter obtain special permission from
the Dean of Women's office.
Time and place of the tryouts
will be announced in The Daily
next Tuesday. Altholgh not abso-
lutly compulsory, it is advisable for
tryouts to come on Tuesday, and
if invited back, return on Thurs-
day for their second tryout. The
constitution of the club state' that
two tryouts are necessary efore
a candidate can become a m mber.
Members of the club have been
discussing plans for a play to be
given sometie this fall. It will be
directed by Robert Wetzel, instruc-
tor in the English department.
There are always a few fine roles
open to women, and those who do
not take part in the plays usher at
the performances.
Comedy Club was decidedly ac-
tive last year. Two of the most
outstanding presentations were a
French farce, "Pierre Patelin," and
"Strait Jacket" which was written
by Prof. J. L. Brumm head of the.
journalism school.

styled in simple lines of red and
purple brocaded with silver.
A gown by Poiret featured long3
tight sleeves which came well over
the hand for evening. The neckline
was decidedly low and the skirt
trailed slightly in back.
Street and sport clothes too re-
flect this prevailing mode in wom-
en's dress but on much shorter lines.
All the vivid coloring of Eugenie's
days are used with many interest-
ing effects. Even the dark colors
are being brightened up consider-
ably. Spanish tile and brilliant
green are leading in most places
where women know the art of chic,
and they are cleverly combined
with smart black and smart brown.
With the styles as they are sur-
rounding women with glamour the
thing to remember is that the man-
ner must suit the dress. The effi-
cient stride which women have
acquired during the days of knee
length skirts and masculine man-
nerisms is entirely out of place, and
the days of bouncing into chairs are
over. If we are going ot dress like
an empress we must behave like
