Merit System
At League Put
On New Basis
Junior Women Are Urged
To'Check Activity Points
In Undergraduate Office
Reeheck Necessary
"All junior women should come
next week to the Undergraduate Of-
fice of the League and check up on
their activity points," Barbara Brad-
field, '38, chairman of the League
merit system committee, announced
Miss Bradfield will hold office hours
from 3 to 5 pm. every day next week,
beginning Monday, in the Under-
graduate Office. She said that al-
though the activity cards had been
checked last year, there still may be
some mistakes.
"It is very important that these
mistakes be corrected," Miss Brad-
field added, "because that is the only
activity history we have for women
students. The honor societies will be
checking through these cards, and
the Judiciary Council will check them
when the time comes for considering
junior women for next year's major
positions of the League."
New Point System
Miss Bradfield said that League
appointments will be made not only
on the strength of how many points
have been earned, but on the positions
that have been held and how well
they have been carried out.
This year a new scheme of award-
ing points has been started, said Miss
Bradfield. The whole system works
on a sliding scale of 50 points to one
point, and this is derived from the
plan of giving one point for every 10
hours' work.
The president of the League re-
ceives 50 points; th Women's Editor
of The Daily and the chairman of
Iudiciary Council, 40 points. All
other council jobs merit 35 points.
Amount Of Credit Varies
The chairman of the Junior Girls
Play receives 20 points and the other
members of the central committee*
receive 15. The Sophomore Cabaret
chairman is awarded 15 points, and
the central committee members, 12.
The chairman of Frosh Project re-
ceives 12 points, while the members
of the central committee receive 10.
Junior positions on The Daily staff
are awarded 15 points.
Presidents and officers of Senior
Society and Mortarboard, senior
women's honor societies, merit 5
points, and members of these societies
each receive 4. The president and
officers of Wyvern 'junior women's
honor society, receive four points,
and members receive three. Other
honor societies and departmental
clubs are awarded 5 points for the
presidents and two for each of the
Cup Is Awarded
Members of the League committees,'
understaff women writers on The
Daily and committee members for
class projects are awarded points ac-
cording to the number of hours they
give to their work, Miss Bradfield
said. The committee chairmen keep
track of their committee members'
hours, and the Women's Editor does
likewise for The Daily understaff
An activity cup is awarded each
year to the sorority, dormitory or
league house zone whose members
have done the most extra-curricular
work, said Miss Bradfield. The total
number of points for each sorority,
dormitory or zone is divided by the
number of women living there. Delta
Gamma sorority won, the activity cup
for last year.

Lillian K. Starrett. '39F&C, the
only woman student enrolled in the
School of Forestry, scoffed indig-
nantly at the suggestion that forest-
ry is strictly a "man's job," and en-
tirely too difficult for girls.
Miss Starrett, who has spent her
last two years in the forestry school
and the past summer at Camp Phila-
bert Roth at Golden Lake, doing field
work with a contingent of other Uni-
versity students, claims that the work
has caused her no unusual hard-
"Even though I had to ride five'
miles every morning to get, to the
camp base from a private home
where I was staying," she remarked,
I enjoyed the work very much."

Fall Hat Fashions Are Extreme;
'Unusual' Is Style's Password

If you are one of those people with
a flair for the unusual and extreme,
this season in hats is definitely yours,
for new and startling are the angles
in milady's head apparel. But, even
if you are very conservative, you will
be intrigued by the novelty of this
fall's chapeaux.
The most marked change has come
in the crowns, which are soaring to
new heights with bows, feathers, veils
and ribbons to soften their ascent. We
found one such hat in black antelope,
strictly off the face, with gilded
feathers on the side. Another is of a
very soft navy blue felt with a satin
lacing which starts at the top of the
very high crown and ends in a bow at
the bottom. A noticeably attractive
hat is a turban of green antelope,
twisted to a point at the top. A large

Thing new is the brimmed swagger hat.
The brim goes down in front, up be-
hind, and has several different sorts
of bands. One of these has a natural
leather band which crosses in front
and is very narrow-giving the hat

Hats went off


Days of 1937-stream-lined trains,
proposed trans - Atlantic clippers,
sleeper 'planes and universal tpeed.
Modern life demands clothes cut
along the same crisp, decisive lines.
Let those who doubt it cast theirr
optics above. The morose figure in'
the raccoon coat is the college woman
of two short years ago. Swaddled
in a voluminous 'coon coat,, a beret
carelessly pulled over fly-away hair,t
she is the epitome of "Joe College,"
vintage 1935.
Modern Dress Snappy
How she ever got to a football game
in time for the kicroff if she had to
struggle down State St. hill in the!
long skirt is a puzzle. The snappy
little number at the left is, however,
completely modern. Her. dress is
simple and youthful, the skirt high,
but not ungracefully short, andt
flared- at the hem.
Raccoon coats, long straight skirts
and hats that are too terribly "sport-
sy" are out--out as definitely as Em-
press Eugenie's or bertha collars.
Old Cycle Goes On
The old cycle in women's fashions
goes on. Ten years ago the latest
shriek was to wear skirts up to the
knees, belts around the hips and
turbans down to the eyebrows. Diet-
ing was the rage, and many a flat,
scrawny figure was achieved by
means of bananas and skim milk.
Styles shifted from the elaborate'
to the ultra-casual and climbed back
to a normal combination. The women
on campus used to wear satins, furs I
and "spike heels" to class. Then camea

face, hemlines dropped down, and
every gal had a waistline.
But hems continued to drop at an
alarming rate, until last year saw
them at eight inches abovfl the!
ground. Yet there wasn't a womanI
who didn't swear to high heavenr
that she would never display great,
amounts of leg again. No matter I
what "they" did, she would not be
one of the common herd.j
Seductiveness Back
Look around. The new dresses have
full skirts, fifteen inches from the
floor. Femininity and seductiveness
are back full blast, but not at theI
expense of smooth simplicity.
Hats are high this fall, adding the
final touch to the long slim 1937
figure. Gone-for another three
years at least-are all signs of fussi-
ness, gee-gaws and cumbersome,
flapping skirts.
Hair Styles Different
Even hair styles are different. Spit
curls and elaborate bobs of the "It
Girl" period have given way to sleek,
shining coiffures. Concentration is
upon the woman herself, not uponI
the amount of trimming with which
she can drape herself.
Straight, clean hair cut like a page
boy, or softly turned up at the ends;I
tall hats; short, smooth little dresses;
sheer light hose; high shoes; and
glitter and glamour in abundance..
That is the woman of 1937.
