which added to the general fun
among those on the ball room floor.,

White Is f avorite
Color For Formals
At Sigma Nu Party
White seemed to be the predomi-
nating color at the Sigma Nu for-
mal Friday night. Satins and crepes
that were built high in front and
with tricky crossed straps in back
lead in importance. One chalk white
crepe was distinguished by a little
cape that buttoned down the front
and had a wide pleated ruching
around the bottom. Another frock
of flowing white satin was straight
and high in front, with Grecian dra-
peries at the shoulders, and a very
low decollette in back. A waist-long
red velvet cape was worn with one
white rough crepe gown, while a
broad belt of the same bright color
set off an egg-shell velvet frock,
with demure puffed sleeves to strik-
ing advantage.
One individual emerald green crepe
we noticed had a triangular-shaped
bib effect in front that was bordered
with brown fur and crossed in the
back with wide straps that were
edged with the same fur,
The sport coat of Leila Hyams seen
above emphasizes many of the sea-
son's most important style points. It
is of the fashionable three-quarter
length, it is untrimmed tweed, the
neckline is severe and high, and the
sleeves are raglan,

houses have suffered most heavily
from decreased enrollment at the
University of Illinois this year, fig-
ures prepared by the office of the
dean of women indicate. Last year
883 women lived in sororities, but this
year the number has dropped 20 per
cent to 703. Total registration of co-
eds in the University is 2,281 this
year against 2,459 last year, a de-L
crease of only 10.5 per cent. Women's}
residence halls and dormitories show
smaller io.sses.
