Honored By W.A.A.
The W.A.A. has finally decided its
more proficient members deserve a
place in the sun. At least, the
maidenly athletes are going to get
their pictures prominently displayed.
A six-by-four foot bulletin board
arrangement will be given the tasks
of framing, supporting, and separat-
ing the pictures. Boldly painted in
blue and yellow, it bears the legend,
"W.A.A. Honors," with the names of
the various sports. Under each name
is, at present blank, rectangular
space, whose size is apparently pro-
portioned to the importance of the
sport whose devotees' pictures and
achievements it will contain.
Designed in characteristic sym-
metry by a student of engineering,
this board is destined to be hung in
the W.A.A. building.

Dinner Suits Are Fashionable
For Informal Week-End Dances
By BARBARA LOVELL
With the resumption of the week-
end dances at the Union and the
League appears the question of what
to wear while you and the music are
going "round and round." This is
the time of year at which your ward-
robe appears at its very lowest ebb -
that is, unless you received some par-
ticularly welcome replenishment at
Much the latest news in informal
evening wear are dinner suits. They
are innovations in comfort, smart-
ness and practicality. In this field
the Spanish influence is very much
in evidence, with much red and
black, full skirts and high heels. The
overdone Grecian mode is dead.
Suits Are Good
One particularly stunning suit isf
of black crepe romain, with a long
skirt, simply cut, and a tailored
double breasted jacket like a man's.
With flattering incongruity there is
a soft, rippling collar on each of
whose wide lapels is placed a huge
floppy red rose. Another suit is bril-
liantly composed of a pea jacket of
white crystal pailettes over a dull
black skirt. The mania for black
persists in a very sophisticated,
starkly simple broadcloth outfit
which is buttoned up the front with
If you desire something a bit m
colorful there is a lovely changea
net which shifts from garnet
purple. A wrap-around skirt is vE
full and the jacket has amus
puffed sleeves. Correctly, on the I
lapel a mammoth garnet silk flo
is placed. An unusual color sche
is carried out in the combination
a short, fitted jacket of pink blott
paper flannel and a skirt of de
red velvet. This suit may also
