Fourth Yeiar Of Dance
"Although this is only the fourth
consecutive year that the formal has
been held, Capitalist Ball has already
achieved considerable importance as
a school dance. It takes its place be-

It's definitely not smart for a col-
umnist to put herself out on a limb
by making predictions. Doesn't mat-
ter what you're talking about, it's
safer to wait and count chickens
when you're sure they'll be chickens
instead of a plate of scrambled eggs.
Nevertheless, there was never a
rule which wasn't a bit better for
having been broken, and in the spirit
of strict conformity we hereby pro-
claim that the years dating from
Feb. 15, 1940 shall be known in Ann
Arbor as P.C.-Post Curie.
Our reasons are simple. As one
having already been subjected to the
rresistible Curie charm, we predict
a definite trend toward smart sim-
plicity in dress (we know the ex-
pression is trite, but you won't know
what it means till you've seen it per-
sonified on the stage of Hill Auditori-
um tonight), to tailored coiffeurs,
and to the strictly feminine charm
which is the birthright of Eve Curie.
There it is, girls--for a change
from the Scarlet O'Hara thing you
wore at J-Hop, try the Curie effect

Versatile Daughter Of Science
Places As Leader Of Fashion

"Flibbertigibet" was the name as-
signed to Eve Curie by her brilliant
hardworking parents when this
youngest daughter, failing to follow
in the footsteps of family tradition,
deserted science for a career of music
and Bohemia.
And "fibbertigibet" she remained.
Prolific in her abilities and cosmo-
politan in her tastes, the charming
Parisienne, who will lecture here at
8:15 p.m. today on "Science and a
Woman," won distinction successive-
ly as a music critic, a playwright, a
biographer and, paradoxically enough,
as one of the world's best dressed wo-

Freshman Project
Petitions Are Due
Opportunity for freshman women
to participate in League activities for
the first time is offered by the 1940
Freshman Project, and petitions for
positions on the central committee
are being accepted through Monday.
Membership on committees for the
project will prove good experience for
future positions in the League, and
not least in importance among these
is the work on the finance commit-
tee. Collecting class dues and plan-
ning a budget are the two most im-
portant jobs of the finance commit-
tee chairman.

mirers, however, publicity-wise Schi-
aparelli persuaded Mlle. Curie to
demonstrate to the United States what
effect the war has had on fashion
styles, and, consequently, the brilliant
biographer of her famous mother will
appear here in an entirely new ward-
robe of exclusive design.
On the whole, Paris clothes are
much simpler because of war-time
activities, but they have by no means
become "militarized," Mlle. Curie said.
On the contrary, she continued,
Frenchwomen have purposely tried to
emain "as feminine as ever."
Clothes Are Severe
Mlle. Curie's own dinner dresses for
lecturing are severely plain with high
necks and long sleeves, achieving the
"covered-up" look, currently in
vogue. Color is introduced in some
of her formal evening costumes, but
never flamboyant color.
Mlle. Curie wears many suits, both
in silk and in wool, and varies them
by wearing colored blouses. She has
simplified the millinery problem by
wearing one style almost exclusively
-the pillbox. To create specific ef-
fects, she chooses one of a number
of de chable snoods of various fab-
rics a d colors.
