Lanterns for the event will be dis-
tributed from 6:45 to 7 p.m. from

side of.the library.
Line To Start At Library
'From the library, the line of narch
will -proceed to Palmer Field where

and the first stanza of "The Yellow
and the Blue" will be sung. The senior

Attractive Linens
Are Choice Gifts
For Future Bride
The first of June is practically
here and with it will come many
showers and weddings. This natural-
ly brings up the problem of what will
be a distinctive gift, one that is both
appropriate to the type of shower and
which will suit the personality of
the bride-to-be. If she is fortunate
enough to know what type of inter-
Ior decoration she will have in her
home this is an important factor to
consider also.
For a miscellaneous shower the

range of possible gifts is endless.
Gifts for the home are more suitable,
if you are not too well acquainted
with the engaged woman, than the
more personal ones.
Linens are among the finest pos-
sible gifts and both the price range
and the possibilities for selection
offer a wide field for choice. Bath
towels with matching cloths are
bound to warm the heart of any wo-
man. They may be obtained in both
clear colors and bright woven pat-
terns. Deep burgundy with aqua or
yellow monogrammed initials makes
a wonderful gift that will be remem-
bered long after the actual wedding
day. Clear white with vivid fish pat-
terns or large red and blue anchor-
wheel designs make an attractive gift.
Table linens for both dress occa-
sions and breakfasts or cocktail par-
ties also make attractive presents.
Bright luncheon cloths with match-
ing napkins serve a dual purpose of
cocktail napkins and for bridge sets.
Dainty linen hand towels make
one of the most attractive and prac-
tical gifts possible. They make un-
usual and lovely packages because
of the numerous pastel colors

Checks Are Colorful

Perky checked gingham lends
zestful color to cotton sports cos-
tumes designed for action or
'spectating.' The puffed sleeires,
round neck, aind full freedom skirt
of this bicycling outfit follow the
trend towards comfortable charm.
The thatching scarf makes un-
r'uly hairs _stay "put."

Moping On The Mall
By Meandering Minnie
"Fan mah brow!" Muggy weather's here again which means we chums
sit under the trees and study or else we just sit under the trees.
Rumor has it that sun bathing is the pastime of the
hour for those who would have that "early Florida" look.
