NoteTo Dress
The modern woman not only de-
mands thather life be led ina prac-.
tic l fashin but that her clothes
serve a' practical purpose. For this
reason leading stylists are featuring
such outfits as cardigans which but-.
3nap both the back and front. The*
lialf sweaters may be purchased in
i rious colors and are interchange-
able thus giving the wearer four dis-
t costumes for the price of two.
ese sweaters are not only practical
but very smart.
With an eye toward practicality,
the reversible dress also serves an
important part of the modern wo-
man's ward robe. One very chic re-
Srsible dress comes in a red flowered
cotton print. The top is separated
and has a quilted jacket of the same
" aterial on one side and a plain
Mite on the other.
Another dress of black and white
check comes with a handy coat. It
i. of black sharkskin and uniquely
zjps around the waist. The top can
be worn separately as a short jacket,
While the skirt can be used alone.
together they make a coat which
niay be worn for various occasions.
*Even 'formal wraps are being shown
if the more expensive shops made
up in this new reversible mode. One
is, of crisp paper taffeta of a royal
bie and white combination. The
coat has a full back dropping from
tiiy pleats at the shoulders where
the material of the full-length puff
sleves also gather their contours.

fair, guests may attend in formal
attire. Costumes may be rented in
Room 6 of the League. For those
attending in costume. prizes will be

the most humorous ones. "It is evi-
dent from costumes already planned,.
that humor and originality are the
deciding factors for ball dress," said.
Bruce Elliot, '41, publicity chairman.

Costumes that have already been
planned for the ball have such titles
as Futuristic Tramps, Surrealistic.
Babies and Sally Rand and the Cow
Richard Black, '39A, general co-

elaborate floor show will be included

Costumes For Ball
Have Been Subject
Of Much Hilarit y
The Architects' Ball being given to-
night marks another epic in the his-
tory of costume balls on campus. An
annual affair, it is the only dance of
its kind given here-a real beaux arts
Costumes for the ball have been the
subject of much hilarity and ingenu-
ty, even drama. For the 1937 ball,
"A Roman Holiday," Edward. Hal-
buch, '37A, "took the cake" and also
the castor oil! Dressed as an ancient
lover he wrapped himself in a bear
skin and much war-paint, added a
dash of handmade jewelery and won
the prize for the best costume and
also a few days rest in the hospital.
In his frenzy of originality and in-
spiration he applied too much grease
paint and so made himself a case for
medical care.
Last year the Roman's conquered
again, when Robert May, '38A, a
former chairman of the Architectural
Society, carried off a prize with his
garb of a Roman Gladiator. Gray
Maxwell, '39A and Dorothy Barrett,
'39A, continued the spirit of "Veni,
vidi, vici" with their interpretation
of Caesar and Cleopatra. The title
of the 1938 ball was "Rococco Revels."
So its what you wear and not what
you should wear that counts, the
theme is only a suggestion!
