Time Extended
To Apply For
Award Blanks
Senior Society Applicants
Must Notify League By
5 P. M. Today
The deadline for turning in appli-
cation blanks for the scholarship
award offered by the Senior Society
to sophomore women has been ex-
tended to 5 p.m. today, according to
Betty Greve, president. These blanks
should be taken to the office of Miss
Ethel McCormick in the League.
The award amounts to $50, which
will cover the tuition of some soph-
omore woman next semester. The
choice of the society will be based
first on the need for a scholarship;
and second, on the scholastic standing
of the applicants.-
After all applicants have been dis-
cussed by the society as a whole, they
will be referred to a committee of
three, namely, Miss Alice Lloyd, dean
of women; Miss Marie Hartwig, of
the physical education department;
and Miss Greve. The final decision
will be reached by this committee.
The society earned the money
for this scholarship by selling senior
caps and gowns last fall at the
League Fair, which was part of the
Sophomore Cabaret.
Miss Greve urges that all sopho-
more women who feel a need for this
scholarship to put in an application.
These blanks can be obtained at Miss
McCoimick's office. The time orig-
inally set when blanks were due was
5 p.m. yesterday, but in order to give
a larger number of women a chance
to receive this scholarship, it was ex-
tended over an extra day. As the
closing date draws nearer the number
of applications has been increasing,
according to Miss Greve.
Tryouts For Play
To Be Held Today
Tryouts for the male parts in
"Robin Hood or the Queen's Page"
will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. today in
the League, according to Valentine
B. 'Windt, director.
This play which is the second pro-
duction of the Children's Theatre will
be given March 6 and 7 in the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre. Any student
interested may tryout for the play
even if he is not enrolled in Play
Production. There will be a number
of very good male parts according to
Mr. Windt.


Guests Are Announced

One-Piece Frock, With Redingote
Coat, Leads Styles For Spring

Exams are just upon us -that is
true. But even in spite of the ap-
preaching gloom, or what have you,
fashion is doing its part to introduce
a note of cheer with an array of
delightful new spring styles.
Double role gowns are to be fea-
tured it seems and are bound to
make an appeal to the college woman
because two dresses may be had for
the price of one. To their advantage
is the fact that they can be changed
entirely by the addition or subtrac-
tion of a jacket or a coat.
To get right down to business, here
is one ensemble which starts out with
a one-piece frock, having a box-pleat-
ed front panel and three-quarters
length sleeves. The sleeves are ren-
dered distinctive by a slight fullness
at the top. A detachable collar and
cuffs are practical features. The ma-
terial -plaid silk. And now comes
the second part of the outfit, a red-
ingote coat in contrasting shade.
Broad Lapels Are New
Then, there is a tricky little affair
featuring pleats and broad lapels,
which are so much in vogue this
spring. Skirt and jacket are designed
in a natural shade, while the blouse,
rather like a waistcoat, comes in
deep red.
Along the same line is a yellow col-
ored ensemble set off by four pockets
in its front panel and four more
pockets in its double-breasted blouse.
The skirt is pleated down the front
and back and is stitched to the knees.
Reminding one of spring after-

noons, but, nevertheless smart for
January, is a one-piece frock, made
up in green and having a scarf in-
geniously attached to a scarlet blouse.
The short fitted jacket has wide re-
vers and a yoke. If you prefer a
different color combination, the frock
may be had in one color and the
jacket and scarf in another.
To introduce the note of formality,
here is a one-piece frock and jacket.
'The frock is fitted tightly to the fig-
ure by darts placed above and below
a braided girdle. A circular collar
supplies a note of sophistication, while
slit sleeves present a gay appearance.1
