Shades Of Blue
Will Form Ball
Color Scheme
Coral And Blue, With Black
For Contrast To Appear
In Decorations Of Bars
Blue walls, blue ceilings, and satin
diops are among the plans for the
decorations for Senior Ball, to carry
out the theme, "Symphony in Blue,"
which the committee decided on
earlier this year, Roberta Chissus,
'39A, chairman of decorations, an-
nounced yesterday.
The walls will be in three shades of
blue, the lightest being at the top,
and the ceiling will be medium blue.
Bars, where coca cola and ginger
ale will be served, are placed along
the walls in between the booths, and
will have gray backs, blue disc mir-
rors, and the bar itself will be coral
with black musical notes. There will
be black patent leather tops, and the
whole effect will be sophisticated.
Each bar will serve two fraternities
or organizations.
The band stand will be odone in
black, with a coral drape over the
back-drop which will be of silver
satin with a cleff and note motif
done in black glitter material.
Bob Crosby's orchestra Ais to play
for the dance, which is to be held
from 10 p.m. till 3 a.m. Friday, June
16, in the Intramural Building, and
William Grier, '39, is general chair-
'man' of the dance.
Color And Frivolity
Are Gayest Whims
In Season's Clothes
Color variety, prne requisite for
our lady's spring wardrobe, is being
treated with singular frivolity and
flipancy by fashion designers this
season. No longer are red, yellow,
and high pink being kept in their
usual places; more and more articles
of "la mode" are demanding their
share of the rainbow hue.
The prim miss with a gypsy soul
can now rejoice in the frankly loud
linings of huge purses whose outsides
are smartly tailored. Or she can sat-
isfy mother's practical streak with
navy-backed gloves whose red palms
would appeal to grandma's liberal
For the moderns who like their
classics with a bit of swing, the shops
are displaying the usual saddle shoes
different-ized by their blue or dark
red saddles. To these can be added
the reversible-cuff ankle socks; smart
navy emphasized by yellow or pink.
A pair of plaid laces will dramatize
that already well-worn brown and
white pair of campus trotters.
Colors has even invaded the cream
colored sphere of the sub-deb pearls.'
Delicate hues of pink, blue, lavender,
and yellow, in triple strands, now
adorn the new spring sweaters. Toy
orchids to the co-ed who dispassion-
ately strung her younger sister's
brightly-hued jacks into a most un-
usual necklace.

Colleg'e Audiences Do Not Daunt
Cast Of 'American Landscape'

College towns and, more particular-
ly, their typical uninhibited under-
graduate audiences, hold no terrors
for the actresses appearing in "Ameri-
can Landscape," second of the Dra-
matic Season plays. Explanation-
they have all taken the precaution of
immunizing themselves with a dose
of the dread disease itself!
Hathaway Kale, who plays the part
of Betty in the play, was part of the
undergraduate body of Smith Col-
lege in 1934, and an enthsuiastic
member of Prof. Sam Elliot's dra-
matic courses.

White coats are always favorites for summer wear and are appropriate
either for land or sea. Flannel is a very practical material for this type
of coat and "swans down" is finding much popularity. The coats are
the swagger type and both have sleeves that are fulI at the top and
tight at the bottom. The coat on the right has a collar and an inverted
box pleat in the back. The other coat has stitching down the front to

replace the collar. These coats are
or dark accessories.
