"Women" were voted to be the
"greatest need of Dartmouth College"
today, in the annual vote of the
"senior preference;." Likewise, it
was found that the greatest regret
of the senior class was "No Women."
The departing class wanted a course
in marriage, and designated Smith
College "the institution doing most
for Dartmouth." Nevertheless, the
typical senior chose milk as his fa-
vorite drink.
Our Suggestions for
If she's in town, bring her in
and let her see how smart '
and economical her daughter
is- She may even reverse
c t radition and buy you some-
If she's away, send her a
small gift of lingerie or hos-
iery. She'll appreciate some-
thing practical.

Mode~rn' Michitgan,
Miss Keeps iCool
In Sheer iFormal
Despite exams which are approach-
ing slowly but surely and despite the
open season on roller skating which is
in full swing, there still seems to be
enough enthusiasm left for various
other forms of merrymaking, notably
ormal fraternity dances. How the
;ay young thing can spend her morn-
.ng hiking, her afternoon playing ten-
ais, and still be able to blossom forth
ill fresh and cool and fragile-look-
ing in the evening is a mystery.
Some credit for the transformation
is due of course to the exceptionally
fresh, cool, and fragile evening gowns
which are the mode. The fabrics are
such as to make dancing on the hot-
test evening a pleasure, in other
words they are as cool and sheer as
they can possibly be.
Organza, mousseline de soie, chif-
fon, nets and laces all do their best
to keep the dancer cool in spite of
everything. They are all soft and
fluttery, but if you prefer something a
bit crisper you may choose an organ-
dy or starched chiffon. Even lace
has its stiffened version in the horse-
hair lace which is more like a stiff
net than lace, though it does have a
barely distinguishable pattern.
Even as you can get either soft
clinging materials or stiffer, crisper
fabrics, styles vary so that the per-
sonality or the mood of the wearer
can be expressed in very feminine or
very tailored evening dresses. The
feminine mode is expressed in ruf-
fles, ruffled capes, ruffles on the
skirt, and even tiny ruffled muffs, or
gloves ending in huge frills.
A new feature in ruffles is the un-
der arm frill which has just made
its appearance. This sticks up from
below the arm and almost forms a
sleeve when it meets a tiny cap sleeve
which approaches from the other di-
The tailored type of evening gown
is the shirtwaist frock or its modi.-
fled version, the tom-boy dress. These
are made with the regulation but-
toned up the front style of the shirt-
waist frock and some have little round
collars and great flowing bow ties un-
der the chin, very much after the
style of Little Lord Fauntleroy.
The skirts of these tailored gowns
are rather trim as compared with the
exuberant flounces of other evening
frocks, but several of them achieve
fullness through large puffed sleeves.

Shier Chosen
President O
Researeli Club
Officers were elected for the com-
ing year by the Women's Research
Club at a dinner meeting Monday
night in the League. Dr. Louise Shier
was chosen as president; Dr. Doro-
thy Bard, vice-president; Miss Caro-
lyn Sheldon, secretary-treasurer; ex-
ecutive board members, Miss Ellen
Bach, h o n o r a r y; Dr. Elizabeth+
Thompson, active; and Mrs. William
R. Taylor, associate.
A paper on "A genetic study of
musical imagery in its relation to the
Wagner-Hanslick aesthetic contro-
versy" was presented by Dr. Martha
G. Colby. According to the result of
experiments conducted over an eight-
year period with the Griffitts gen-
eral imagery tests, it was discovered
that 84 per cent of adult subjects
have vivid visual and kinaesthetic
imagery as a factor in their musical
response, causing their musical pref-
erences to run largely to descriptive
or programmatic music. Much more
rare is dominant auditory imagery,
which seems to be an essential part
of musical success.
