Costumes Distinctive
Costumes were various combina-
tions of outfits collected from the
chests of faculty members and home
attics and later were made for a
great part by the women themselves.
Sue Calcutt, as the costume chair-
man, has designed costumes that
are imaginative, distinctive, and col-
orful to be in keeping with the mod-
ern trends of the play.
The singing in Junior Girls Pays
has never been all that even a kind-
hearted audience could wish it to
be. Maxine Maynard, with the as-
sistance of Prof. Arthur Hackett of
the music school, has trained a cho-
rus of 30 voices and groups of them
will do all the singing throughout
the play.

Prominent campus women served

day's fashion show held intheLeague.
Jane Servis, '36, showed to good ad-
vantage a brown suit in the wind-
blown style featuring the new turned
down collar and big patched pock-
ets. The suit coat hung loosely from
the shoulders, and was worn over a
shell pink crepe waist. With it Miss
Servis woi'e an off-the-face hat with
turned up rim.
Mary Sterling, '35, was particular-
ly attractive in a flowered print of
red and green contrasted with jacket
of plain material in bright green. The
jacket was removable, making the
dress suitable for dinner or strictly
formal wear.
Jeannette Detwiler, '34, modelled
several boucle outfits suitable for
street and sports wear. One in rose
was very popular.-
Students who assisted in receiving
the guests were Margaret Hiscock,
