Diagonal stripes, fashion's touch of smartness this season, are
shown to advantage in these two models. The ever-distinctive black
and white combination is used in the cocktail gown at the left. The
evening frock is of maize colored satin with a gold stripe.

Most desired in the production of
the legend is the spiritual quality.
It is not an imitation of the medieval
dances, but is the organization's own
interpretation of the meaning as de-
duced from selected material and
outside readings on the background
of the Middle Ages, including the so-
cial and economic life,
The purpose is to create the legend
through symbolical dances in their
own designs or terms of this day, sug-
gesting the middle ages. The back-
ground is necessary to interpret the
legend with medieval quality.
Costume Jewelry
Of Wood 4nd Silk
is Found Popular
What if you have pawned the fam-
ily jewels for bread in these trying
days, they're all out of style any-
way. The only thing that's really
good now is wood, so as long as
there are a few logs left in the old
lumber pile, you're all set as far as
the season's costume jewelry is con-
Jewelry is all barbaric; that is, it's
very large, very jingly, and exceed-
ingly exotic. Bracelets are much worn
since the high neckline prevents
necklaces from being popular. They
are for the most part very wide and
most popular in wood, of course.
Others which have just made their
appearance are broad bands of
braided silk which actually button
on with large wooden knobs.
Often there are rings to match the
bracelets, extra large too, and some-
times a necklace is included in the
set. One or two of the buttoned-on
bracelets have necklaces to match,
which button with the same large
buttons somewhere in the region of
the nape of the neck.
Colors in all sorts of jewelry are
exceptionally bright, just the shades
one would expect an Indian chief to
favor, and gold is shown much more
than silver.

"Personality in a Changing World"
was the subject of a talk given the
Roundtable by Prof. Bennett Weaver'
recently at the League. Prof. Weaver
stressed the fact that, contrary to
common belief, the personality of the
individual is not being torn down
by the speed and complexity of mod-
ern life, but rather is offered far
more opportunity for self-expression
and expansion. The tendency of the
modern young man to attack the
present social orders is no more than
a waste of time which might be de-
voted to study of oneself and work
within oneself, functions which are
essential to the man who would at-
tempt to study social conditions, Prof.
Weaver stated.
The first class of problems which
faces the, modern youth are those
associated with time, he said. Stu-
dents especially complain of lack of
time for their various pursuits. Prof.
Weaver offered the philosophy that
"there is no such thing as time."
Orderliness of endeavor and the vi-
tality resultant from sensible diet and
sleep are the best methods for com-
batting these difficulties, he added.
The second class of problems dis-
cussed was that associated with the
acquisition and retaining of facts.
Instead of blaming professors for as-!
signing too much work, students
should concentrate on developing the
aptitude for holding facts in the
right relationships, Prof. Weaver
stated; it is a talent which can be
acquired by anyone.
The third and most important of
the problems Prof. Weaver discussed
was the changing ideals of a new
era. One must not be afraid to re-
linquish old standards, he said, but
must be sure that the new are big-
ger and greater. "But," he added,
"we must never forget that there are
certain fundamental ideals which are
indisposable and to which we must
All students living in fraternity

The question of whether or not
traditions should be maintained is
one that troubles almost every cam-
pus. Recently Harvard voted to abol-
ish one of its oldest, and the Univer-
sity of Akron to continue one of
theirs under question.
Last week, President A. B. Conant
of Harvard, acceding to the wishes of
students in the yard, agreed that
Harvard University's college bells
should remain silent in the morning
until 8:40 a. m.
From the time the university was
founded until 1886, the bells rang
each morning at 7 a. m. to call the
students to compulsory chapel serv-
ices. In the latter year compulsory
chapel was abolished, but the tradi-
tional 7 a. m. bells remained on the
For years undergraduates, catching
that last few minutes of sleep before
8 a. m. classes, have cursed the tra-
ditional bells as they roused the en-
tire campus.. A controversy between
the students and college officials had
been going on for years until the new
head of the institution decided what
the students wanted was more im-
portant than ancient traditions.
By a close vote of 385 to 363, stu-
dents at the University of Akron last
week voted against abolishing the
tradition prohibiting smoking on the
University campus.
The question was brought to a
vote by the student government lead-
ers when the Buchtelite, undergradu-
ate newspaper, questioned the use-
fulness of the ancient tradition.
Faculty members retained a some-
what, neutral attitude on the ques-
tion, a great many of the professors
and deans holding that it was a mat-
ter for the students to decide.
Nevertheless, it was understood4
that a final decision on the matter
would be placed in the hands of the
faculty by President Hezzleton E.
Yale University s t u d e n t s have
launched a drive for $20,000 to be
used to support charities in New Ha-
ven and educational projects aided
by Yale in Labrador and China.
