With the approach of the end of
fushing,sororities must begin to think
of the bid lists which they are to send
tn to the office of the Dean of Wom-
en, according to Betty Aigler, '35,
president of Panhellenic Association.
In order to facilitate the wprk of
the dean's office in sending out pref-
erence lists, sororities have asked to
hand in the lists of women whom
they are bidding at two diflerent
times. The first list, prepared after
the Wednesday formal, will be due
st the dean's office before noon Thurs-
day, and similarly, the second list,
must be in by noon on Friday.
Miss Aigler emphasized the fact
that there must be no duplications in
the lists. Each list, she said, must be
final, that is the names which appear
on the Thursday morning list cannot
One rule which is evidently not un-
derstood by all the houses is the rule
pertaining to decorations for the din-
ners, Miss Aigler stated. The rule
referred to states that all decorations
shall be simple, consisting of tapers,
and either fruit or flowers. Many

be announced at this time.
Newest Outfits Have
Plaid Touches To
Lend Color Note
The thermometer has dropped at
last in answer to our prayers that the*
weather would allow us to sport some
of our new wools. There seems to be
no doubt this year that the ward-
robe is incomplete without at least
one plaid outfit.
Plaids are being used for every pos-
sible motive-ascots, blouses, skirts,
jackets, and coat. Of the latter, we
saw a stunning style made up in rust
and brown check that is ideal for
football games. The two-piece suits
of dress and swagger coat are per-
haps the smartest campus outfit this
season. They are shown both with
the plaid dress and plain coat and
vice versa. Then, there is nothing
that so peps up a last year's skirt
as one of the tricky plaid blouses, that
are being shown in all colors. They
are fastened in front with an adorable
rittle pom-pom that slides up and
down a zipper. Some of the more
domesically inclined co-eds .have
made themselves plaid sets of skirt,
scarf, hat, gloves, and purse that
lok exactly like a picture out of
Fortunately, plaids are not confin-
ed to wools this year, and are even
s own in as frivolous a material as
taffeta. Some of the most formal
afternoon dresses include a plaid trim
of either neck-wear or an entire
blouse. A further innovation is a
plaid design of gold or silver threads
in black taffeta and crepe.
Costume jewelry is even made up
in plaid and is very new as well as
a good addition to one's accessories.

fit. So let's take a lesson from the
Scotch and "go to town" in plaid.

As is usual every year, there are
several clever innovations in knick-
knacks for the co-ed's room. One of
the most practical of these, which is
decorative as well, is called a "three-
way" lamp. It can be adjusted to
either stand on a table, hang from
the wall, or clamp on a bed - sounds
complicated, but really very handy.
Another useful attraction is called
a pot-holder stand. It is made up like
a miniature tree, from the branches
of which hang tiny plant-pots of
various colors. They look very pretty
on the new stools of natural wood
which stand about a foot high, and
dress up any small empty space.
No room, even if the occupant
does not smoke, is complete without
an ash-tray. There are several shown
in the gift-shops but one we've seen
is especially appealing. The ash-tray
rests on the end of the long tail of a
brown wooden cat. This cat will stand
very proudly next to any comfortable
chair, because it is all dressed up

Course Now Given

Three courses in radio technique
are being offered in the speech de-

The beginning courses are advanced

cifically with radio technique, and

with a large ribbon tied around its
neck. Of course the ribbon can be
changed to match one's room.
Sometimes one really feels like
studying and upon such an auspicious
occasion, it's smart to have a door-
knocker -- especially if it's as clever
as the one that is sweeping through
the dormitories. It is made of imita-
tion tree-bark. The visitor pulls a
small chain which incites a red-
headed woodpecker to peck against
the bark. They are made by real
hill-billies, and are much simpler than
a Rube Goldberg invention, and ter-
For bare wall-space there are sev-

which are attractively framed. Also
for this purpose are small Mexican
masks, shown in orange and brown,
and various other combinations.
Gertrude Stein To

Miss Stein's latest book, a collec-
tion of characteristic sketches of
some of her friends, including Picas-
so, Hemingway, VanVechten, Sher-
wood, Anderson, and Mabel Luhan,
will be published while she is here
Miss Stein will witness a perform-
ance of her opera, "Four Saints in
Three Acts" for the first time when
she arrives here. The play, withhits
original cast practically intact, opens
a country-wide tour early next

DON COSSACK RUSSIAN CHORUS
Exiles, men without a country - have the words "En voyage" written
in the passports issued to them. No wonder these men cherish a passionate
longing for their "beloved Mother Russia." Before the Russian Revolution
they served as officers in the cavalry of the Imperial army of the Czar.
In 1923 they were organized as a chorus by their dynamic young leader,
SERGE JAROFF. From that time on they have wandered throughout west-
ern Europe, England, and Australia, triumphing not by sword but by
song. In 1930, they made their first visit to America. They have mastered
every variety of choral singing. Everything about them is dramatic.
Although they sing in Russian -native folk-songs, as well as religious
and secular numbers - each song carries its well-detadied English version.
Their singing is thrilling in its intensity and fire. Ralph Holmes, the
distinguished critic, has aptly said, "You will never bclievc me nor anyone
else who tells you how wonderful the Don Cossacks are, ':nlcss you happen
to hear them yourself; for no words and no enthru ?,.rvm can do them
justice. Here is something superlative."
