English Influences
Are Evidenced In
Fashions For Men
In the opinion of a number of New
York style experts, the undergrad-
uates of Princeton and Yale come
close to setting college men's styles
at least as far West as the Mississippi.
One noticeable effect that this
condition has had, particularly in
the past few years, is the increasing
influence of English conventions in
dress. For instance, this fall the out-
standing college novelty in the East
is the Eaton muffler, a crocheted As-
cot type affair in regimental stripes.
Circular patterned wool hose is an-
other English style brought over by
Yale and Princeton men, and a third
is the black bands on covert-colored
felt hats, the most popular model in
collegiate circles still being the snap
The amazing spread of these Eng-
lish styles is due to the fact that a
large percentage of these under-
graduates travel in Europe during
the summer vacations, bringing back
with them bits of new wardrobe
which their friends immediately pro-
ceed to have copied by their Amer-
ican tailors. Style experts of the
larger cities are not slow to discover
these trends. Each year it is taking
less time for college styles to creep
into the cities, large and small, into
the wardrobes of young business men
and professional men.
Dr. Guthe Speaks
At Grad Luncheon
Dr. Carl Guthe, director of the
Museum of Anthropology, was the
speaker at the luncheon for graduate
students held at noon yesterday in
the Russian Tea Room of the League.
The subject of Dr. Guthe's infor-
mal talk was "American Indian His-
tory." A short outline of the history
of the Asiatic mongoloid race group
which later became the American
Indian after crossing the Bering
Straits and thence traveling south
into South America, was the main
topic of the speech. One of Dr.
Guthe's most interesting remarks
concerned the effect of the inven-
tion of agriculture and the greater
amount of leisure which ensued in,
the civilization of the Indians. The
contributions of the American Indian,
to our present civilization, according
to Dr. Guthe, may be compared to
those of the ancient civilization of
Greece, Rome, and Egypt to modern
