Hoods Add Glamour

Hooded gowns nave invaded the
field of evening wear, as well as
that of day-time dress. This pop-

excellent protection to a party-go-

The hood may be worn p or down

Activity Of Sun
Spots Studied
By Astronomer
"You may quote me as saying that
I think there is absolutely no corre-
lation between sun spots and the
present state of affairs in Europe,"
declared Dr. Hazel M. Losh of the
astronomy department.
Both astronomers and astrologers
have found many correlations and
made many predictions on the
strength of the kind and amount of
sun spot activity over a period of
years. There has been a good deal
of discussion recently over the mag-
netic storms that have interfered
with radio and short wave reception.
Two very interesting correlations
that have been established besides
that of electrical disturbances are
those of the northern light display
and tree growth. It has been found
that the space between the rings in
a tree is greater during maximum
than at minimum, showing a greater
growth at that time. This may be
due to an increase in rainfall or to
the activity of ultra violet rays.-
When questioned on the potential-
ities of the astronomical field for
women, Dr. Losh replied that the work
itself was limited since it can only
be followed up through research and
teaching. Women astronomy teach-
ers are carving a field for themselves,
especially in women's colleges. Until
recently, astronomy was taught as a
separate subject only in a few of the
larger colleges.
Although astronomy is predomin-

ately a man's field there are a few
women scattered here and there. Wo-
men are good at computation because
there are more particular about de-
tails, while men are better at hand-
ling the large instruments used.
