The three requirements of a
smart spring dress this year are
that it must be of light weight wool
or flannel, two-pieced in appear-
ance and of a pastel shade as the
one pictured above. Such an out-
fit is appropriate for both class-
room wear and on dates. Matching
necklaces and bracelets are an ad-
ditional touch for dressy wear.
It's a characteristic trait of the
human race to sit smugly in the spot
which is home and consider all the
rest of the worid a carbon copy of the
area which can be seen between the
horizons. It's a bit startling to go
wandering and discover that the land
beyond is neither a carbon copy nor
the stuff of which dreams are made.
We made such an exploratory trip
to another school recently, and re-
turned home with a new perspective.
We learned to appreciate a variety of
things-the library, League, Publica-
tions Building, liberality of women's
hours (yes, even that!), and the com-
parative awareness of affairs -of the
world which exists, though slightly,
on this campus.-
Why This Rule?
We learned to criticize too, and ourI
criticism was directed primarily
against that time-worn and unques-
tioned rule that men must leave wo-
men's houses at 11:30 p.m. on Friday
and Saturday. Our criticism is not
based on the feeling that social con-
duct is too strictly regulated by the
powers that be, but rather that the
rule defeats its own purpose-or at
any rate, one of its purposes.
One of the most important factors
behind the rule is obviously conveni-
ence. To keep women's residences
open beyond 11:30 p.m. places an'
added responsibility on the shoulders
of the chaperons whose hands are
Yet, in spite of the administrative
difficulties involved, there is a very'
definite argument in favor of the
change. Theoretically, when 11:30
rolls around, the men go home and.
the women go to bed. Actually, both
[ men and women leave the house, and
are faced with two alternate ways to
spend the remaining hour or two until
women must come in-they can go
somewhere and drink cokes and talk,
or they can neck at the side of the
Two Disadvantages Involved
The 11:30 rule has two definite dis-
advantages. The first is that bridge
parties are broken up, only to turni
the participants out on the streetsto:
wile away the remaining hours as they
see fit, and second, that it places
entertainment and dates on a defin-
itely expensive level at this university
To Sell Collars
Senior Society women are becoming
full-fledged "white collar salesmen"
for in addition to their sponsorship
of the flower sale for Assembly Ball
tomorrow night, announcement has
now been made of a sale of white
collars for use with senior women's
caps and gowns. Beginning Mon-
day, March 11, the collars will be
available in the League Ballroom.
In urging that senior women pur-
chase these regulation white collars,
Maxine Baribeau, '40, president of the
society pointed out the desirability
of uniformity among all the seniors
and also the fact that they will be
needed for use with the caps and
gowns worn to Senior Supper, Wed-
nesday, March 13.
In regard to the Assembly Ball
flower sale, Miss Baribeau further
urged that flower tickets be purchased
now since it may be impossible to
supply all who want them with flow-
ers at thesdance. Both red and white
carnations will be sold.
"The Soul Of A Rat" ShowsAtt
At Interpretation Of Animal
The artist, Hugh Gray Lieber, auth- of lines indicates the restlessness and
and lays the major part of the respon-
sibility on the shoulders of the men.
It completely destroys the illusion
that women are at home, because
they canot entertain their guests as
they would if they were at home.'Men
cannot "come calling" as they have
done from time immemorial because
it implies that they are not willing
or able to do "the right thing"-take
their dates dancing or to a movie.
There's our criticism-take it or
leave it. We saw the plan at work
last weekend, and we discussed it
with those on whom it worked, in-
cluding the housemother, who showed
nothing but surprised disapproval for
the fact that women's hours here are
consistently one half hour later than
they were there.
Puts Spring Blouse
In Every Wardrobe
Who will not need a new blouse
this spring? "Nobody," deem the fa-
shion forecasters who have proceed-
ed to design a complete wardrobe of
skirt and suit accompanyers to make
spring shppping easier.
The classic man-tailored garment
is still leading sales for campus wear,
but the ultra-severe type is giving
way to feminine alterations. Round
peter-pan collars are replacing the
well known points and sleeves are
becoming softer and slightly wider.
Many blouses are now finely finished
at the bottom, to be worn inside or
out of the skirt band.
Especially smart under the peren-
nially good navy blue or black suit
are the lacy baby blouses that are
made to frame the face with dignified
frills or flambouyant fluffs. Under
short sleeved, close fitting sweaters,
the sheer batiste of thin rayon silk
bodice does not interfere with the
"smooth" effect but still lightens and
brightens sportsy attire.
Mr. and Mrs. Herbert L. Nichols,
of River Forest, Ill., anonunce the en-
gagement of their daughter, Bettie,
'40, to William H. Reininga, of Oak
Park, Ill. Miss Nichols is affiliated
with Pi Beta Phi, and Mr. Reininga
is a member of Delta Tau Delta at
Purdue, from which he was graduat-.
ed in February.
Miss Nichols' engagement was an-
nounced at a dinner party Monday
at the Pi Beta Phi house. The head
table was decorated with a center-
piece to which streamers with cards
bearing the initials of Miss Nichols
and her fiance were attached. The
small tables were decorated with bowls
of carnations and initialed cards.
Announcement has been made of
the marriage of Alberta Greenberg,
daughter of Mrs. L. Greenberg of
St. Louis, to Lilburn M. Ochs, '40Ed.,
son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Ochs, of
St. Louis. The ceremony took place
Saturday in the chapel of the Peo-
ple's Church at Lansing.
Matron of honor was Mrs. Eugene
Giard, of Lloyd House, and Thomas
Uetherton, of Colorado Springs, Col.,
was best man. In honor of the bride
and bridegroom a surprise party was
given by 250 foreign students of the
International Center, of which Mr.
Ochs is athletic director. Lloyd
Eouse, where Mr. Ochs had been
staff assistant, entertained the couple
at a dinner Monday.
