A Zestful Note For SpringI

Fashion Show ,
Held At League
Attracts Ma ny
More Than 1 ,170 Women
Watch Models Parade
In SpringEnsembles
More than 1,170 women attended
the fourth League-sponsored Fashion
Show held yesterday at the League.
'Twelve students and twelve profes-
sional models modeled spring en-
sembles which featured short full)
skirts and hats with chin straps.
Marcia Connell, '39, one of the stu-
dent models, wore a navy blue wool
dress with a candy striped blouse.
With this a navy, off-the-face hat,.
tied under the chin with a veil, was
worn. Mary Randolph, '38, another
mcdel wore a tailored evening gown
with a navy skirt and chartreuse
blouse and magenta belt and ker-
Betty Gatward, '38, head of the
League social committee, was in
charge of the tea. Charlotte Rueger,
'37, announced the models as they
Seated at one table were Edith
Lynch, '41, with her mother, Mrs.
John Lynch, Betty Ronal, '38, Mary
Minor, '40 and Harriet Shackleton,
'38. Seated at another table were Pa-
tricia Haff, '40; Janet Allington, '38,

Spangler, '39, Jane Holden, '39, Caro-
line Martin, '40, and Mary Johnson,
'38. Erla Dodge, '40, and Mary Helen
Hurley, '38, were also present.

J.G.P. Women
Stitch Merrily
On Costumes
The costume zoom of the League
has become alive with the whirr of
sewing machines, manipulated by the
adept fingers of the many industrious
committee members who are whip-
ping in the stitches for the 1938
Junior Girls Play.
Mary Lavan, chairman, and her co-
horts have been spending their time
'midst the bolts of material that have
been collected for a variety of cos-
tumes that will liven the scenery of
"The Mulberry Bush." Everything
from Pericleans of the earliest vintage
to the latest in formal gowns are be-
ing collected, revamped or made anew.
Chorus Costumes Described
Costumes for the various choruses
are in the making and at present As-
pasia's Girls are about to be garbed
in yards of green and summer brown
giarquisette, which will constitutethe
long full skirts. The bodices will be
made of bronze satin.
The royal family has to be pro-
vided with army outfits, which have
swept the committee into a quandary
of what to do with the "rebels." Red
shirts have been the outcome and in
true keeping with the modern concep-
tion of "what's fit for the army."
No kingdom would be complete
without its peasant element and so it
is with the Kingdom of Boeotia. They
will wear gay skirts of prints and
plain materials with bfouses of white.
Problems Are Met
The Changing of the Guard have
also presented a problem of grave con-
cern,.according to Miss Lavan. Their
costumes will be as one committeo
member describes them "beyond de-
scription." Short pleated skirts, bo-
lero jackets and numerous other de-
tails will give the general idea.
