Bold flower prints on rich, heavy
satin are distinctive in an evening
dress which perfectly expresses the
elaborate theme of a season head-
lined by the British coronation.
The gown is made along simple

Sorority, zone and dormitory teams
wishing to compete in the 75-yard
relay for women in the annual swim-
ming exhibition will have their last
chance to tryout from 8:15 to 8:45

be composed of four members, Miss
Harp stated.
That the statement so often found
on articles made of leather, "Genuine
Leather,", means very little in de-
termining its quality? It harks back
to the old question of "How many)
hides has a cow?"
The only really strong, durable and
good looking surface of a piece of
cowhide is the outside, or hair side
of the hide. Because of its thick-
ness, it is frequently necessary to
thin the hide before putting the
leather into a notebook or brief case.
The leather is split on a large ma-:
chine into from two to five or six
hides. This is known as "skiving,"
and the lower cuts are known as
"split leather."
First quality leather goods are
made only of "top grain" leather
because of its smoother surface, re-
sistance to abrasion and long-
wearing quality. Second quality
leather goods may legally be marked
"Genuine Leather" because it IS
leather, but of a far inferior quality
suitable for use only where abrasion,
and stretching are not likely to be
