Plans First

Forum Series To Begin:
Next Week; No Further
Charge For Feature
The Union will again resume its
plan of social hours with the fourth
in the series of buffet suppers to
be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. tomorrow
in the main dining room.
Hf. Murray Campbell, '38, who is
in charge of the suppers, stated that
the attendance has been quite good
at preceding suppers and that he
feels they will become more popular
since exams are over and the new se-
mester has begun. All students and
faculty members are invited to at-
tend in order to encourage Sunday
evening gatherings.
The second floor ballroom which
has been converted into a lounge and
radio room has been open for all
guests until 10:30 p.m. but Campbell
wishes to stress the fact that this is
one of the most important features
of the evening and to urge more peo-
ple to enjoy the congeniality this room,
affords. The game rooms will also be
open for men and women during the
afternoon and evening.
A series of forums which will pre-
cede the suppers is to be a new fea-
ture but they will not be inaugurated
until the following week. The speaker
for the first forum has not been an-
nounced. There will be no additional
charge forithis new entertainment
and the price for the supper will re-
main 50 cents.

Feminine Trend Shown

ideal length just covering the hip-
bones. Shoulders are square and box- N EW C LA
