Sigma Rho Tau
Meets To Plan
s For New Year
Embarking on its seventh year of
existence, Sigma Rho Tau, engineer-
ing speech society, held its first meet-
ing of the year last night.
Although the meeting was osten-
sibly to organize and present a gen-
eral set-up for the year, there were
several matters of importance that
were taken up. An election was held
to determine who should fill the va-
cated position of corresponding sec-
retary, since W. A. St. Jean, Spec.,
will not return to school this year. Eu-
gene Bychinsky, '39, was unanimous-
ly elected.
A vote of sympathy was taken in
memory of Leon Highhouse, '38E,
who was fatally injured in an auto-
mobile accident this summer. It
was also agreed that the mother of
the deceased be petitioned for a pic-
ture to perpetuate his memory.

if their missing menfolk are among
the cadavers left by the executioners.
The police, in efforts to identify
the dead, compiled a booklet con-
taining photographs of 250 bodies
unidentified during the four weeks
from Aug. 14. There were also pic-
tures of 32 unidentified women pho-
tographed where their bodies had

Pour a few drops of liquid over a RE-TEXTURED
Garment ... watch it scuttle off in beads. It rolls
OFF, not IN ... no stain... no water mark.
Certain fabrics and dyes resist the water repellent
feature of RE-TEXTURING, so if you succeed in
wetting it through, let it dry naturally . notice
there's no "pucker," no "puff, no "ring."
RE-TEXTURING is an added process that re-
places all of those essential "Weightings," "Cloth-
Oils" and "Dressings" that ordinary dry-cleaning
removes from the fabric
RE-TEXTURING is given to you at no additional
charge on any garment sent in for cleaning.
