Suit Classics Shown For Campus

Simple suits like those pictured are being seen left and right on
campus this spring. On the left is a light weight wool cut on fitted
lines. And on the right is a sheer wool with a classic car digan
front. Both suits are worn either with contrasting or dyed-to-match
wool blouses or a short sleeved sweater if preferred. They are shown
in all the new pastel shades which are so popular now.

Beauty Exercises
Taken With Music
Alleviate Boredom
Two by two they steal softly down
the stairs at 10:30 when house doors
are closed. What for? There are
symphony and swing records in the
living room to alleviate the boredom
of before-bed beauty exercises.
Yes, it seems to be the new mode
to combine the aesthetic qualities of
dance with the beautifying properties
of bending and twisting. Beethoven's
fifth is a good rhythm for "run run
run leap," while Tschaikowsky's
Sixth is apropos for "bend two, up
Breathing exercises go best to sym-
phony orchestras too, while mock bi-
cycling in the air is exhilerating when
done to the swing rhythm of "In the
Mood." Balanced exercises, such as
in sliding down the wall eight beats
for posture and back up again for
eight more beats of posture fit in
very well with most of Haydn's sym-
phonies. Rhumba rhythms add
"oomph" to leg and arm swinging
To the second movement of Bee-
thoven's seventh goes the following
athletic accomplishment: partners
sitting on the floor take turns pull-
ing each other up slowly so that one
is lying down and the other is stand-

better" is the thesis of this exercise,
so that one variation of the main
theme to one "pull-up" is the proper

advise. You shake gently. Nothing

"Press button"; and if you can lo-

upper half of the spokes. In a stiff
wind, they fly up, and instead of a
reliable article for keeping the rain
off, you have a pancake of a parasol
with the bottom half of the spokes
waving grotesquely in defiance of all
laws of gravity.
'Fool The Public'
But assuming that the wind was
not blowing, you carefully flatten the
sections of the spokes, gently push the
button and press each spoke until it
clicks. But what you didn't realize
is that they have another plank in
their "fool the public" platform. As
you press down one spoke, the one
on the other side pops up. Quite a
successful platform, don't you think?

Triangle held a hard times party
last night ro celebrate the birthday
of Adolph Hitler. The house was be-
decked with paintings of Hitler and
swastikas, while the radio furnished
the music for the guests to dance. As
an added attraction, games were play-
ed. These were a combination of Kay
Kyser's "Kollege of Musical Knowl-

Questions were asked concerning Hit-
ler's favorite songs and pastimes.
