The first group project of the non
affiliated women on campus, the As.

in the ballroom of the League. Th
general chairman and heads of com
mittees under her will begin work 01
the project immediately.
At the last meeting of the As.

At the Panhellenic Banquet held
each year, a scholarship award is giv-
en to a sorority house with the high-
est standing, but the disorganization
of the non-affiliated women maks
it necessary for a different rating to
be used. Miss Marion Williams,
statistician of the University, is
checking the scholarship records of
all independent women and three
awards will be made to those of high-
est scholastic record.
The Assembly comprises half of the
Board of Representatives and mem-
bers of it are chairmen and assist-
ant chairmen from the nine zones
in which the University has been
divided. For every forty non-affiliated
women, representatives have been
chosen for the Assembly.
Other officers of this group are
Eleanor Peterson, '36,tpresident, and
Margaret White, '35. Miss Ethel Mc-

tee on arrangements.

Before Campbell Black soared away
from England with C. W. A. Scott in
the London-to-Melbourne air derby,
he asked Florence Desmond (above) to
marry him. She told him her answer
would be ready if he won the race
-which he did. So it appears there
may be wedding bells soon for the
plucky flyer.
Variety Of Design
Used In Season'sc
New Tunic Models
As soon as fashion had declared
the tunic definitely in for the season,
everyone turned instinctively towardI
originality and cleverness in design.
Nor in the future will they be disap-
pointed in the imaginative creations!
on display in the various stores.
One of the most outstanding of
these is a copy of Mainbocher, flar-
ing slightly and in Cossack style. The
ecclesiastical effect produced by the
tunic is heightened by a silk cord,
bound about the waist and falling in
tassels from a knot at the front.
Metallic Tunics Popular
The popular trend toward metallic
cloth is exemplified by a tunic of!
imported metal, which presents a
striking appearance in black, silver,
or Patou red. It is set off to its best+
advantage when worn over a black+
underskirt of either velvet 'or silk.
If -one prefers something less formal
in metallic design, a tunic dress with
a metal-embroidered crepe blouse,
makes an outstanding gown.
A great success, too, is the Russian
pencil silhouette, worn over a slim
lovot skirt ThPflnnhr II
