Unique Ideas
Livened Past
Ml tar y Ball
By HELEN BRADY
"At 9 o'clock the three orchestr
will strike up the 'Victors' and t
impressive grand march will beg
While this is in progress the strai
will change to the 'Stars and Strip
Forever,' the marches will straight
their ranks and the onlookers w
stand rigid at the side of the buil
ing."
And this, in short, is a descripti
of the highlight of the second a
nual Military Ball, held way ba
in-well, just way back. Backi
those just referred to days, the b
was held in Waterman and Barbo
gymnasiums. There were spec
booths for the fraternities and pun
was always served.
While many features of this a
nual dance have been added throu
the years, the spirit of tradition a:
all that, has kept alive certain a
tivities such as the surprise stun
arranged by the men of the mi
tary ranks.
We can well imagine that onloo
ers stood rigid at the side of t
building when a blackout and a s
prise air-raid occurred in the mid
of one ball. A small dirigible s
pended from the ceiling was f
lowed by ,a ray of light, burst wi
the well-known "bang," having be
shot down by the energetic lit
plane.
The goddess of peace was featu
at one dance as the tradition
stunt. This lovely lady (in lumi
ous paint) evolved from a huge mi
ral of men fighting. To make
sound less involved, when the lig
were on, one saw many soldiers b
tling fiercely; when the lights we
out, there was the serene godd
herself.
And then there was the time th
the Military Ball made history.
was in 1922, when the ball mu
was broadcast. It was the first ti
dance music was ever broadcast fro
an affair of this sort from any u
versity.
Costume Jewelry
Adds Personality
To Sprim Clothe
Psychologists should make a stu
of women's clothes, especially th
jewelry. For nothing reveals a w
man's personality more than t
clothes she chooses and the jewel
she wears.
Floral necklaces and clips a
among the more popular styles<
the season. It seems that no we.
bred coat-suit or blouse can go wit;
out these clips and many and vari
are the types of lapel gadgets whi
are appearing on the jewelry cou
ters of the nation this spring.
Ceramics Used
Ceramic faces, animals and flo
ers are among the more popular
the bright colored clips and pi
and have the added attractionc
their versatility. They may be wo
as pins at the throat or used1
decorate the lapel of one's ne
spring suit. Glamorous flowers wi
brightly colored stones and rhin
stones are among the many oth

White Adds Extra Dash

New Hosiery Material Is Made
Of Coal, WVater For Durability

In Return Engagement,
Shawl has New Uses
Shawls are treading a smart and
sophisticated way back to fashion,
New York stores have been announc-
ing lately.
That might be good news for college
girls, the biggest boosters of simple
sophistication. They'd be worn over
the shoulders, perhaps off one shoul-
der, being attached by loose ties close
to the neck, or with clips. If worn
over the head, they're long enough to
cover the shoulders.
There isn't any use they can't be
put to, and some of the suggestions
are over suits, as sweaters on campus,
for after sports or for evening wear.
One can follow the Latin-American
trend by having them flowered, one
can be Scotch with plaids, or have
them match your pastels. They're
made of soft wool, silk or even linen,
and most of them have deep fringes.
There's already been a preview for
shawls this winter with the large
triangles of lace that have been worn
over evening dresses, and this is sure
to continue throughout the summer.
Addition Of White Gives
Zest To Spring Outfits
If you want to have a high average
in the dating league, then listen to
what stylists say about accessories.
According to them any spring outfit
can have that extra amount of 'dash'
by adding white. A smart white bre-
ton sailor with a ribbon about the
crown to match the dress, is very
chic.

Durable Synthetie Yarn
Has Fast Drying Quality,
Limited Supply Available
By DORIS CUTHBERT
"Don't look now, but I believe,",
paid one daintily clad foot to an-
other, "there is a heel following us."j
She was absolutely correct, though'
what kind of a heel it was, we must
leave up to conjecture. There are
at least seven well known varieties
Jnluding silk, net, lyle and cotton
and silk mesh, rayon mixture, and
two new products soon to be on
the market. The latter two are
Bermber and Nylon.I
Dupont holds the rights to Nylon
yarn, and only eight plants in the
country are licensed to weave (he
new material. Different persons in
authority have described the simil-
arity between this hosiery and a!
sheet of glass. "Wash it," they say,
"hang it up and the water runs off
just as it does with glass."
Record Drying Time
It also makes a claim to an all-
time drying record of fifteen min-
utes. Experimenters say that it does
not lose its shape even when wet,
and wears longer than the usual
hosiery. However, even with this,
they have not succeeded in manu-
facturing the perfect stocking; that
is, Nylon hose catch and run just as
others do.
No one is quite sure of what this
Nylon material is made, but there's
a rumor in the air that it containsj
coal, castor oil, ammonia, tar, air,
and water. We will know more about
it after May 15, when it goes on the
market.j
Little Yarn Available
Wha'ever it is made of, Nylon will
not seriously affect the silk industry
for a good many years to come, for
the supply is limited. It is estimated
that Nylon cannot replace more than
5% of the silk stocking market at
the most, because there is not enough
yarn available and there will not be
enough for five years.
Bemberg hose is a tested rayon
fabric, reputedly stronger than silk
and less likely to run and snag. It

is less expensive than silk, but looks'
as sheer. Net and mesh stockings,
which are becoming more popular
this year, have a highly touted rep-
utation for being immune to that
perennial nightmare, the run, al-
though they are subject to snagging.
Novelty hose seem to be having
a small hey-dey of their own this
season. One pair noticed particular-
ly was called crepe twist. It was of
silk yarn, woven with a stripe to
represent a lace effect, but succeeded
in making the stocking look very
much as if it had a bad case of runs.
