Trousers For Women I
Is Latest Fashion Note
LOS ANGELES, Feb. 22.-The fad
of trousers worn by women made its
appearance at Los Angeles Junior
College this week, meeting with much
approval and disapproval.
One girl attended thus attired and
said that the "slacks" were both com-
fortable and attractive, and perfect
for dancing.
Most women like the new style "but
wouldn't be the first to wear them."
Men are divided in opinion and one
said "they not only step into our
shoes, but ,also into our trousers."

Two arresting fashion change
have been inaugurated for spring, or
in the new hats and the other in bot
the daytime and evening silhouette
The new hat fashion is probabl
the most startling, mainly for th
reason that nothing was done to a
low us to get used to them graduall:
The srtaight way of wearing hat
this spring right over the eyes (bot
of them instead of one) will seer
strange to many of us after th
cocked attitude we have been use
to all winter.
The high crowns that practicall
all the new hats will hvae will con
pletely change the head silhouett
from the shallow pan-cake typ
crown. These new high crowns ar
best typified in the "fez," the ne
square-like turbans of Turkish ex
In costumes the changes are ac
-omplished with more subtlety. Th
basic lines of skirt lengths, shoulder
and sleeves continue to give the sam
impression. Skirts are straight I
daytime clothes, and molded abot
the hips for evening, with flare
emanating below the hipline.

The Penny Carnival that was to
be held March 11 will be indefinitely
postponed, according to a report
given by Jean Berridge, '33, general
chairman of the event.
Permission for the postponement
was given by Dr. Margaret Bell who
was not in favor of the carnival to
be given at this time because of the
scarcity of money now in circulation.
Although further plans will be held'
up until a future date, Miss Berridge
suggested that the various houses
make definite plans for decoration so
that all will be in readiness when the

Seen At Early Spring Formals

Spring is in the air and corre-
sponding new notes are appearing
in Milady's clothes. The week-end,
fostering several dances on campus,
provided ample opportunity for ob-
servation of the latest colors, mate-
rials and styles. Amidst the: groups{
of dancers we caught glimpses of
turquoise, lavender, powder blue,
creme and rose. Laces, in the ever
popular black and white, chiffons,
and georgettes are already coming
in; and thelittle cape sleeve and
square neckline bid fair to attain
popularity this spring.
Friday night's rain did little to
dampen the spirits of the 40 add
couples attending the Delta Gamma
formal house dance. Mary Phillips,
'33Ed., was seen wearing white chif-
fon, with a high front neck-line and
a low-V back, and white low-cut
sandals. Virginia Roberts, '35, ap-
peared in a stunning creme-colored
creation trimmed with a dark lay-
endar cape which carried around to
the front to form a sash. She wore
slippers to match the cope. Margret
Schermack, '33, attended the dance
in a white lace dress with off-the-
shoulder cape sleeves supported by
white satin straps.
Jane Mitchell, '33, was at the
dance in a gown of powder-blue
triple-crepe chiffon, the top of which
was encrusted with brilliants. Silver
slippers completed the effect. Look-
ing around, we spotted Betty Eagles-
field, '33, among the dancers wear-
ing a black lace dress with a belt of
turquoise blue crushed velvet, and
dainty cape sleeves of lace. Catherine

the hip line. A Victorian air was
achieved by purple rouching round
the hips ending in a bustle effect
in the back. A brilliant clip at the
neckline, brilliant earrings and white
slippers completed the costume.
Jean Botsford, '33, wore a black
velvet formal with a detachable cape-
jacket fastening in the back, the
sleeves of which were banded with
silver sequins. Her accessories con-
sisted of black pumps with brilliant
buckles and crystal earrings.
A gown of soft light blue crepe
with a three tiered flounce at the
'bottom and a soft pink sash was
chosen by Jean Porter, '34. She com-
pleted her outfit with crystal ear-
rings and matching sandals. Tur-
quoise blue was selected by Dorothyj
Van Riper, '34. Onto a band of se-
quins at the back was joined a tri-
angular piece of the blue material
which fastened in a brilliant buckle
in the front. Her satin sandals
matched her gown.
Blue and white were popular colors
at the Kappa Alpha Theta formal
last night. And if beng well dressed
has anything to do with it, all of the
members should have had a mar-
velous time. Dorothea Hunt, '34, was
charmingly gowned in a turquoise
crepe with beaded straps. Rhinestone
earrings and blue shoes completed
the costume.
Clara Grace Peck, '33, was dressed
entirely in blue. Her gown was of
crepe with a cape jacket effect, and
her earrings and slippers were of the
same color. Blue and white were
pleasingly combined in the costume
worn by Betty Little, '35. White vel-
vet rouching bound the cape and the
bottom of her white crepe dress and
her slippers and earrings were of tur-
Red coral velvet formed the cape-
top of the formal selected by Mary
Stirling, '35. The white skirt and
coral slippers made a striking con-!
