Radcliffe Dean Urges Women
To Pursue Professional Study

S.' " A. IAIIAAL1 Invading Men's Domain
Metallic Cloth And Velvet All Right, But Hang On
Are Used To Brighten To Fenininty, She Says
Masculine Severity The belief that women have a
definite contribution to make in all
Going home for Christmas means fields of knowledge was expressed
a round of dinners, dances, and the- Friday by Dean Bernice Brown
atres. Books are forgotten and old Cronkhite, Dean of the Graduate
friendships and acquaintanceships School of Radcliffe College, and vice-

are renewed. For the frequent occa-
sions when you will want to dazzle
your friends but will not want to be
too dressed up, the new "scotch and
soda" dress will fill a definite need.
A "scotch and soda" dress, estrictly
defined, is a street length dress with
She elegance of a formal. Cut simply,
its fabric and trimming display a
sumptuous quality that is unusual on
,a short dress. Many of them have
demure little jackets which hide a
blouse of surprising richness.
Borrowing again from the men's
fashion world, one dress of this type
is startling with a white collar and
tails on its jacket. To be sure, the
collar is not stiff and the tails are
a trifle abbreviated, but the rela-
tionship is there. Silver buttons close
the jacket. Under it is a short-
sleeved blouse of white lame trimmed
with narrow bright green ribbon.
This model is unrivalled for restau-
rant dining and dancing.
Another "scotch and soda" dress
features black velvet and egg-shell
satin. The long-sleeved jacket which
has double revers of stitched satin
covers a blouse of satin. This blouse
relies on the beauty of its material
for its trimming, having simply a
jabot at the neck. The "scotch and
soda" influence is even being ex-
tended to formals. One gown of ma-
roon flannel shows a tong-sleeved
jacket with tails. The dress top is of
maroon metallic cloth.
The Vionnet wide gold belt strikes
a rich note on another short dress
of this type. Black velvet with a
horizontal gold s t r i p e running
through it fashions this one-piece
model, which has no trimming save
the belt. However, the belt is very
ornate and the dress does not need
anything else.
Extremelyssumptuous-looking is a
tunic ensemble of silver metallic
cloth and velvet. The long silver
tunic is unrelieved except for a bril-
liant red velvet sash with fringed ends
and a narrow edging of the velvet at
the throat. If you don't want to wear
a long dress on New Year's Eve, this
would fill the bill.
Pratt To Speak Dec. 9
On School At Malines
Wilmot F. Pratt, carillonneur of
the Charles Baird Carillon, will be
the speaker at the luncheon for grad-
uate students to be given at noon
Wednesday in the Russian Tea Room
of the League.
Mr. Pratt will speak on the sub-
ject of the carillon training school at
Malines, Belgium, which he attended.

president of that college, who spent
several days last week here in Ann
Arbor. Dean Cronkhite, enthusias-
tically described the recent entry of
women into fields of work and study
traditionally reserved for men, and
cited the splendid work done by
women in many of these fields.
Because women are trained to deal
with individuals rather than with
abstractions, her work gives a new
point of view to the conclusions us-
ually reached by men, explained
Dean Cronkhite. She quoted John
Stewart Mills, in giving this belief,,
as follows, "Women's thoughts are
thus as useful in giving reality to
those of thinking men, as men's
thoughts in giving width and large-
ness to those of women."
In discussing the attitudes of men
toward the entrance of women into
medicine, law, and other hitherto ex-
clusively male domains, Dean Cron-
khite stated that she believed that it
is not this so-called invasion which
is so resented, but rather the loss of
feminity which so often character-
ises the woman doctor or lawyer.
Dean Cronkhite described the ad-
vantages of Radcliffe College, at
which the students have all the life

of a women's college, coupled with
the opportunities provided by a great
university and all the excitement of
a coeducational institution. This she
believes to be the ideal situation for
a broad college education.
"If women can engage in their
professions as women and can keep
their feminine charm, they will soon
find that they are welcomed in all'
professions," asserted Dean Cron-
khite. Dean Cronkhite has been the
guest of Miss Ruth Danielson at Hel-
en Newberry Residence during her
stay in Ann Arbor. She has been
visiting the University of Michigan in
order to understand the environment
from which Michigan graduates en-
ter the Radcliffe Graduate School.
She was honored at a tea given
Thursday at Helen Newberry Resi-
dence, at which the Radcliffe Al-
umna of Ann Arbor were present.
She plans to visit the University of
Toronto, Queen's University at King-
ston, Ontario, and to address the
University Club of Ottawadbefore her
return to Cambridge.
