Dean Alice





First Orientation


Lectures Begin
At League For
New Women
College Conduct Is Subject
Of Address; Expense Of
Sororities Discussed
Mrs. Bacher Speaks
Modern Sports Clothes Are
Strongly Advocated For
Campus Wear
More than 200 freshman women
filled the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre
at 5 p.m. yesterday when Miss Alice
B. Lloyd, dean of women,' opened
the series of orientation lectures, hav-
ing "College Conduct" as the topic of
her address.
"Because you are college women,
Gertain refinements are expected of
you," Miss Lloyd pointed out in open-
ing her talk. "Living in large dormi-
tories necessitates consideration of
others around you, and life proves to
be so much nicer if this practice is
followed to the fullest extent.
Few Are Geniuses
"There are only a few geniuses.
But there is one thing which we can
all create as long as we live, and that
is fine human relationship. Out of
people's desire to do this has come
ourcode of manners," Miss Lloyd
In opening her speech, Miss Lloyd
indicated the attractiveness as well
as the comfort of modern sport
clothes that alone are correct for
campus wear. She went on to point
out how incongrous bright red finger-
nails and excessive make-up appear
with this conservative costume.
Smoking Fire Hazard
Women's smoking is a matter of
individual taste, but it is important
to keep it from being a fire hazard.
Already this year, one fire has been
caused from careless extinguishing of
Miss Lloyd explained to the fresh-
men women that any general soror-
ity information that they may de-
sire may be obtained from Miss Per-
ry in the dean of women's office. She
estimated the cost of belonging to
a sorority averaged $100 for the first
year, and from $40 to $60 the follow-
ing years.
Honesty In Education
Honesty, she stated, is important
in your attitude toward your college
work. "Honesty is the very basisof
good living and to swerve in the
slightest degree from such a stand-
ard is a denial of education itself.
You have come to the University to
gain insight and understanding, to
learn great truths of science and his-
tory. The greater your understanding,
the less you can tolerate dishonesty
in any form."
In conclusion, Miss Lloyd said that
it is up to the freshmen women to
set the standards of college conduct.
"Be sure that when you leave the
University it will be a better place
for those who follow because you have
been here."
Mrs. Bacher Speaks -
Margaret Hiscock, '36, chairman of
the League orientation committee in-
troduced Miss Lloyd to the audience,
and she in turn introduced Mrs. Byrl
Bacher, in charge of student employ-
ment, and Miss Jeanette Perry, in
charge of dormitory placements, sor-
ority information and student loans.
The second in the series of lectures
will be given by Dean Wilbur Hum-
phreys at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Octob-
er 9 in the Lydia Mendelssohn Theat-

and Now

Dormitory halls can be terribly l
drafty at night as soon as winter
blasts its way around - so can most
any hall when it comes right down
to it. At this time to be comfortable
becomes inevitably the college wom-
an's main concern.
No longer, however, need comfort
interfere with style; they go hand
and hand these days. The first thing
to do is to select a bathrobe which
wil prove both warm and smart, and
flannel is the standby material this
Color In Abundance
As to the colors, high tones are chic,
victory blue and red leading. Cerise
and brown are also good. The flan-
nel robes follow the military trend
and are bound in contrasting colors.
Little monograms of felt on the pock-
ets are being used a lot, and it is all
the better if they are made up in the
wearer's own initials instead of just
representing fancy designs.
Lounging pajamas, too, are a very
important item. They come in vel-
vets, costume velveteens and jerseys.
The latter are smart two-piece af-
fairs made up in mannish style with
high neck lines and"frog trim. Most
any bright color will do.
Slippers suitable to go with the
above garments are also essential.
For those cold floors it is a good
plan to have on hand a pair of fleece-
lined slippers, warm and comfortable.
If one wishes to be a bit more dressy,
there are mules lined in soft fluffy
fur. Bedroom footwear may be worn
in some neutral shade or may be

selected in tones to match or contrast
with the robe.
For The House Party
Of course the college woman does
not spend her entire time in the dor-
mitory. There are always those fra-
ternity house parties to think about.
For these robes in silk crepe, satin,
brocaded satin and plain satin with
contrasting sashes and trims are in
vogue. Some oriental trims are even
being worked in on the backs of the
For dressy occasions such as these,
lounging pajamas are smart if bro-
caded satin combinations, light and
dark. For sleeping they come in tuck
stitch, balbriggen and flannelette ma-
terials. Bright blue with red sash
or red with blue frogs are just two
illustrations of some of the clever
things being done with pajamas this
For those who prefer night gowns
are provided brocaded satin creations
