Style For Campus
Wear Are Urnsual
The Sailor is coming in with the
"back to nature," good wholesome
outdoor girl attitude which always
comes with the spring. There is
nothing quite as dashing as a sailor
and nothing which is more appro-
priate for campus or spectator sport
wear. And don't think that they
resemble too closely the b r o a d-
brimmed hats with elastic under the
chin worn in our childhood days. The
modern sailor is so sophisticated that
one can trace only a most distant
r;lationship between the two.
Regardless of sophistication, ono
almost fears that a return to the
elastic-under-the-chin stage is in-
dicated because these newest sail-
ors have such shallow crowns that
it seems almost impossible to keep
them on. That is, it seems so until
one sees the modern contrivance
which is taking the place of the elas-
tic this season. This is the bandeau
which is a band set at side, front
or back of the hat and fitting it
snugly to the head. The bandeau in
the back or on the side gives the
hat a rakish forward tilt, while those
with the bandeau in the front have
the most extreme off the face line.
Among the latter types is the coro-
net sailor which is set far back on
the head, while among the other
styles are the Gibson girl, and the
saucer sailors both of which have
tie very fam iliar righit eye slant.,
This kind of hat applies all its trim-
ming under the brim on the bandeau.
It may be a bunch of flowers, a band
of ribbon, or a bow and it usually
provides a color contrast.

In the poet's own words - "A frog's

a very happy thing, cool and green in
early spring."'That poet had i't heard
the unhappy tale of the frog and the
Union pool.
Mystery enshrouds the story. Int
fact no one knows what it's all about.
How did it get there?kWhere did i
conie from? No one knows - or at
least no one will admit that he knows.
It all came about at the recent
time trials in preparation for the
approaching intramural swimmi 1

Beg Coins In FrontI

BERLIN, Feb. 23.-(,")-A Ho-
henzollern prince begging for coins
before the castle of his imperial for-
bears will be the compelling spec-
tacle offered residents of Berlin to-
morrow afternoon.
Prince August Wilhelm, fourth son
of former Kaiser Wilhelm, in his ca-
pacity as a group commander of
Nazi supreme storm troops, has been
ordered, together with all other
high leaders of the Brown-shirts, to
take his turn at standing on a street
corner with a slotted tin can to solicit
for the winter relief fund.
The forty-seven-year-old prince se-
lected Unter Den Linden, through

Since 1930 Prince August Wilhelm,i
aaist his father's wishes, has been
a devoted follower of Adolf Hitler,
while his famous father chopped
wood in exile at Doorn.
The Prince, who was clubbed and
roughly handled by police at a Nazi
rally three years ago- long before
the party swept into power -said
that the stern Hitler was sent to
Germany by God.

"The Pied Piper" is being produced
in an exaggerated manner; not only1

Special Music Written
Music has been composed especially
for the production by Everett J. Hilty,
'34SM. The dancing is under the di- I
rection of Betty Ann Beebe, '37, Jane
Edmonson, '37, and Jean Kepper, '37,1

group, and Alice B'igham, '36.

shouldn't miss the scene of the sack-
ing of the town hall, when the towns-
people, hysterical over their wrongs,
burst in upon the ermined Mayor
and his Corporation. The melodrama
of the play is that of the mob, and
of old-time elocution and oratory.
Tickets for the performance which
will be given the afternoons of March
1, 2, and 3, are now available at the
Lydia Mendelssohn box office. A
freshman and sophomore committee
will have charge of the business and
ticket sales for the play.

Charges of extreme cruelty, the

either party to a divorce action, and
court bailiffs ordered an eager crowd
from the courtroom.
