"Every campus woman could profit
by the 1910 form of coquettishness
as displayed in this year's Sopho-
more Cabaret," Margaret HIscock,
chairman of the cabaret, said yes-

men of that era 'put them across' by
making the men think they (the
men) were pursuing the women and
by hiding the fact that they were
really throwing themselves at the
Speaking of the entertainment to
be presented in the floor show, Miss
Hiscock said "this floor show offers
entertainment unparalleled by any
previous cabaret. Such features as
the bathing beauty chorus and the
dance by the lovely ladies and their
swains are entirely different from
anything shown before."
The acts will be presented at 4,
9:30, and 11:30 p. m. Friday and at
4, 9, and 11 p. m. Saturday. Lasting
about a half-hour, the floor show will

play for the acts, which will be given

Sturdy Oxfords In
Rough Leather Are
Favored For Sport!
While the evening styles turn to the
ultra-feminine in ruffles, campus
wear becomes more and more Eng-
lish in trend. This is widely seen in
the durable campus oxfords now seen
so widely along the Diagonal.
While suede has proved itself a
smart complement for suits, many
are the regrets over the constant care
required for it. While the rough
leathers, mandrucca and alligator can
be scuffed and really like to take it.
A popular model is the modified
ghillie with a stub toe and fringe
shortening further the length. There
are two groups in the footwear fash-
ions of the day, those who advocate
the extremely long pointed shoe
which is said to be more graceful,
and the younger set, who have shown
their love of the petite ini the devices'
for shortening the vamp.
And with the short toe comes the
sturdy block heel, cutting straight
away from the body of the shoe. The
smart boulevard height is thought
better for more formal street wear,
in novel and combination leathers.
And the flat processed rubber sole
is popular among those who dislike
the click-clack of a leather cap.
Brogues are smart, but more and
more being built to take the hard
wear given to them.

tate, after which he went to Eng-
land. He was deported, returned .to
this country as an undesirable alien,

mony with details of the financial
