Women Blame
College Clothes
For Sloppiness
Campus women are continually
accused of being sloppy, accused by
the men students, of course. The
usual reply of the defensive side lays
the blame on traditional college at-
Why should casual clothes be com-
pelled to be sloppy? Long sweaters
may reach to the hips, and still have
the appearance of good grooming.
If the neckline is not stretched, if
the sleeves are not worn down after
pushing up has destroyed their slim-
ness, if the whole job does not look
as if a trip to the cleaners or wash
tub is in order, the sweater can
hardly be called disorderly.
Short skirts are the rule, but the
rule is modified by careful dressers_
according to the shape of their legs.
If the mirror shouts "basketball
calves" to a girl in shorts, she will
lengthen those skirts that reach only
to the knees. If the hips of the gar-
ment fit firmly to her own, she will
allow an extra inch of hem for pro-
tection against "pulling up" wrinkles.
Glamour dictates "hair down, way
down," but it does not dictate "hang
down." A shoulder length bob re-.
quires as much careful grooming as
an "upped" creation.

Experimental Work This
Year Has Proved Needi
For League's Service
More stress on academic interests
is the purpose of incorporating the
tutorial system into the League or-f
ganization with its head a vice-presi-
dent of the League, according to Dor-
othy Shipman, '40, president of the
Tutoring of students as a service of
the League has been going through an
experimental stage this year. The
system as it will be adopted next year
will be a carry over of what was done
in the field last fall, with Jane Krause,
'41, and Jane Baits, '42, at the head
of the project.
The work done this year included
the soliciting of capable girls with
a good scholastic average to serve as
tutors. Most of these were taken
from the honor societies.
Card Files Kept
Card files were kept of the tutors
and the subjects they felt qualified
to teach and also of the applicants
and the subjects in which they de-
sired aid. A small charge of 25 cents
an hour was made for the service.
The chairman had charge of calling
people and arranging the tutoring
Freshmen and sophomores in par-
ticular applied for the service, and
most of the requests were for help in
beginning subjects. The faculty also
cooperated with the system.
During this trial period of the tu-
torial system, it was developed and
enlarged. The result was believed
worthwhile to incorporate into the

League system as filling a vital need,
Miss Shipman said.
Satisfies Tutoring NMed
The system as it will be adopted
will give girls who have academic
interests which exceed their social in-
terests a chance to take part in the
activities of the League and will pro-
vide them with a small remuneration.
It will also satisfy the need for tutor-
ing and give a maximum amount of
service at a minimum price. Finally,
it will round out the activities of the
League, Miss Shipman said.
Petitioning for the positions on the
League Council, including the vice-
presidency which is head of the tutor-
ial system, will close at 5 p.m. today,
Miss Betty Slee, chairman of judici-
ary council announced.
