Benefit Party
A large crowd of members of the
faculty, town's people, and students
filled the ballroom of the Intramural
Building last night at the annual
President's Birthday Ball.
Among the patrons and patronesses
present we noticed Dr. and Mrs. Max
Peet. Mrs. Peet looked lovely in a
creen crepe dinner dress with puffed
sleeves. Mr. and Mrs. George P. Mc-
Callum, Jr., also attended the Ball.
Mrs. McCallum chose a white crink-
ly crepe trimmed with matelasse. The
dress was made on princess lines
with a slight train and featured a
short jacket that buttoned down the
In the ballroom we noticed Mrs.

crossed over at the waist of the dress.
Also among the patrons were Mr.

velvet gown with silver accessories.

Fashion. Forecast
Predicts Swagger
Coats, New Colors
There is evidence of several in-
teresting advance fashion trends. In
day clothes, skirts are definitely
shorter - twelve to thirteen inches
from the ground. Separate woolen
topcoats are very important. Not
limited to any particular style, they
may range from the semi-fitted red-
ingotes trimmed with fur to the fur-
less swagger coat.

Midnight Blue Set Off
Accessories Is Choice
Style Critksr
While it will be the gay colors


the unique designs of the formal
gowns that will give the J-Hop its
gala atmosphere, it will be the dark
dress suits of the male half of the
species that will furnish the back-
ground and enhance the attractive
qualities of each frock by the con-
Midnight blue, which appears
blacker than black under the light,
has become the accepted shade for
both tuxedoe's and full dress in Uni-
versity circles the country 'round. The
somber black, though still being used,
is just a little too dull for those stu-
dents'who wish a dash that will show
up well with the lighter shades worn
by each exciting bit of femininity.
Formality Is Stressed
Because of the increasing trend for
more formality, full dress, complete
with white tie and tails, will be the
predominate theme in men's dress.
The tux, however, will still be seen,
as its comfort values are obvious"
when one compares the advantages of
sitting down naturally and the dis-
advantages of having to sit with care.
The double-breasted style of coat
will be the favorite in tuxes, with
the puffiness in the chest being
transferred to the region directly
under the arms to allow for freer arm
A shawl collar is used on the
double-breasted suit, while the old
favorite peaked lapels will still be used
on the singl'ebreasted suits. Black
vests, to be used with the latter, are
following the trend of the white vests
used in the white-tie ensemble. The
lapels drop straight down the chest
to the level of the first button and
then execute a 90-degree turn, end-
ing their existence at the point of
contact with the button. It gives a

circle-within-a-square effect that is
decidedly virile in intent.
Full Dress Is Tops {
Full dress will be tops, however,
and a decided necessity to this en-
sembe is the new wing collar worn
with the shirt. It stands fully an,
inch higher than that formerly used.
Those devotees of the white tie, worn1
only with full dress, will find that1
the exact height of the collar must
be varied according to the individual,
but, it must be high er than formerly.
A new feature in studs, already seen
on the campus, is gold. For the
strictly formal suit they can be had
in pearl, mounted in gold. A small
gold tear drop is placed in the exact
center of the stud. For the less for-
mnal tuxes, the studs are made of solid
gold. The cuff links, of course, match
the studs.
Another accessory, now included on
the must list, is the gold or silver
woven watch chain, gold if your
studs are gold and silver if your studs
are plain pearl or smoked stone. It is
usually anchored in the watch pocket
of the trousers and, droped down to
the utility pocket. With single-breast-
ed tuxes, however, it may be worn in
usual vest pocket.
If you happen to be flush, your
white cord-knit scarf will give that
new military coat, designed strictly
for formal wear, the distinction
achieved by those who are smartly
dressed. The coat is light weight,
featuring a flaring skirt and the
short collar made popular by the
trench coat. The guards model, how-
ever, will be the dominant style. A
Homberg or topper, as the suit de-
mands, will compete the outfit. Some
of the hat companies are making the
toppers in midnight blue.
