Enid Bush, '33, Chosen to Suc-

Due to Resignation.
TO GIVE PARTY FRIDAY
Gamma Phi Beta to Be in Charge
of Arrangements; League
House to Assist.
Enid Bush, '33, was named new
bhairman of the League (social com-
mittee to succeed Catherine Heeson.
'33, at a recent meeting of the
League board of directors. The ap-
pointment was made following the
Sposer or '- wn en, You} Come to the
End of a Perfect Day," "I Love You
Truly" "Just a-wearyin' for You"E
and countless other lovely songs.
These simple melodies have brought
beauty and serenity to people of
all classes, from the lowliest of
homes to the White House itself.
But as Neil M. Clark says of Mrs.
Bond, "Great songs do not spring
out of empty lives," and I think
we should know something of the
poverty and hardships, the loneli-
ness and sorrow in the life of this
courageous woman, to appreciate
the quality that makes her songs
Born in Jaynesville, Wisconsin,
Carrie Jacobs received all the mus-
ical training that a town of its
size could offer and at an early age
was heralded as the local pride.
However, she was thirty-four before
necessity swept her into the work
she had always wanted to follow.
At this time she was left desolate
"New fashions, if they are to be
successful, must be in accordance
ewithcertain ideals current at the
time they are launched," states
John Carl Flugel in an article on
the "Psychology of Clothes" in a
recent issue of 4the Golden Book
"Fashion has established a defi-
nite economic order; as fashion has
spread downwa:'d in all classes,
large and powerful commercial in-
terests have become involved and
great industries have been built up.
Fashion changes with the rapid
changes in social and scientific de-
velopment. In fact fashion expres-
ses the ideals, the spirit of the age,"
Anatole France has said this in
regards to fashion. "If I should be
allowed to chose one out of all the
books that will be published a hun-
dred years after my death do you
know which I would take? I would
take, my friend, a fashion maga-
zine, to see how the women were
dressing a century after my de-
Pli-r, nvea-sts, preachers anda ser-
In conclusion Mr. Flugel says
"fashion writes history-are the
Empress Eugenie hat and the re-
vived bustle the forerunners of a
new golden age of prosperity?"

by the death of her husband and
the failure of all their investments,
and from then on life became a
continuous struggle to obtain sus-
tenance and shelter for herself and
young son. She painted china, did
sewing, wrote songs and even gave
concerts to advertise her songs, in
an effort, to support herself.
I think it is indicative .of the
beautiful character of Mrs. Bond
that during. this period she was
able to create friendships that
somehow never failed her. And
gradually through these friend-
ships, as well as by the intrinsic
worth of her songs, she reached
the goal of success.
Her music is characterized by
sincerity and simple beauty. It is
never pretentious, and yet it pos-
sess a quality that made their com-
poser welcome at the White House.
"The Perfect Day" was the favor-
ite song of President and Mrs.
Harding. What is finer still, her
songs have lasted beyond a mom-
ent's popularity, and will probably
live for years in the hearts of the
