Is Restored To Calm
The sudden drastic change of at-
mosphere in the Undergraduate Of-
fices these days makes us stop and
wonder, 'when we dash through on
an errand in the afternoon. There
are no long, endless lines of women
waiting to be interviewed for vari-
ous and sundry positions around the
campus, and the new effett is really
rathe': refreshing.
Orientation advisers, JGP chair-
men, Judiciary Council members--
all have been chosen for next year,
to say nothing of the officers of the'
League themselves. So now one may
Walk untrampled through the offices
and not even have to have someone
bring her a coke to revive her while

But definitely!-we approve of con-
ventions. Especially when we hear
what results from them. Right now
the subject under discussion is the
tutorial system which is being or-
ganized by Congress-and it's the
fruit of a nation-wide convention of
representatives of independent men's
Yes, the meeting was in Kansas
and the idea comes from the Univer-
sity of Oklahoma. It seems that
they've had a system for several years
whereby members of numerous cam-
pus honor societies sign up to tutor
various sub-par students who stand
in need of a bit of aid if they're to
keep their noses above water scholas-
Tutoring Is Honorary
The post of tutor is made honor-
ary, and students who desire to offer
themselves for a couple of hours of
service each week are selected on the
basis of scholastic rating and general
ability. The task is not burdensome
since it is confined to one or two
hours each week and it answers the
age-long wail of the scholastic society
that it has no function.
You probably didn't realize it, but
just such a system as the one out-
lined above has been in operation for
several weeks here-on a limited scale,
'tis true. Approximately 25 students
have been tutored while the plan is
yet in the eperimental stage and it
is hoped that next year that number
will increase considerably.
Societies Offer Help
Tau Beta Pi, Phi Eta Sigma, Alpha1
Lambda Delta, Wyvern, Mortarboard,
and Senior Society are among the
honorary groups which have already
signified their desire to back the pla.
The work will be confined to fresh-
men in its first stages since it is felt
that it is in this group that the great-
est good can be accomplished. If the
service out-grows the limits provided
by the freshman class, it will progress
into the other classes.
Seems like a good idea, doesn't it?
Here you have a plan which offers
honor on the one hand and much-
needed aid on the other. A perfect
combination, it seems. We hope that
next year will see this service reach its

Is Season's Trend
In Beach Apparel
Sunny days and warm breezes turn
a young woman's fancy to thoughts
of clothes and more especially to
bathing suits. Beach apparel this sea-,
son is following the general trend in
all clothes toyard more and brighter
colors. Paris openings for summer are
showing many suits , of chartreuse
with large flower decorations in con-
trasting tones.
An unusual one of this shade is
;wo-pieced cotton with navy ric-rac
trim. Dressmaker suits are going to
be fashion leaders again this summer.
Jackets for out of the water wear
have come into their own and will
be seen in both bolero styles and
three-quarter length models.
Sharkskin is making its appear-

maker styles and two-piece suits.

Ten years ago tonight, the Class of
'32 "danced their way out of their
freshman year in a one night per-
formance of 'A May Dream'."
In the 10 eventful years that
have passed since that evening, many
changes have been wrought on our
campus. One tradition that continues
however, is Lantern Night, annual
spring affair given in honor of senior
The Lantern Night of 1929 was a
far cry from the simple yet impressive
ceremony of today. In those days it
was a four hour affair, replete with
colored jackets, flags, picnic lunches
and white garbed leaders.
12 Leaders Chosen
The 12 most outstanding women of
each. class led the pr.ocession. Chosen
by a committee consisting of the
Adviser of Women, Advisers from
the Physical Education Department,
the President of the League and the
President of the Women's Athletic
Association, the women were known
as "the four leaders and eight aides
of each class." ,
Instructions ran in The Daily for
days before the event. New W.A.A.
jackets were to be worn, each class
having their own color. The jacket
of the freshmen were green, those of
the sophomores were red, yellow for
the juniors and blue for the seniors.
The leaders and aides were instructed
to wear plain white dresses and to
carry flags similar to those that
decorated the field.
Box -Lunches Eaten
Box luncheons were distributed
from 5 p.m. on, until the start of the
pageant. These lunches, ordered be-
forehand, and costing 35c, consisted
of a salad, relish, four sandwiches, a
cake and eating utensils.
While the Freshmen Pageant took
place, the audience ate their supper.
These pageants, in which all the
freshmen women participated, as-
sumed elaborate proportions. Floats,
dances and vivid costumes all added
to the general gaiety of the occa-
After the pageant; the aides for
the march passed through the audi-
ence requesting the women to join
their class formations on Observa-
tory Street. After the lines were
formed, the leaders and aides dis-
tributed Japanese lanterns to the
seniors and flower-garlanded hoops
to the juniors.
