Sparsity Of Hats On Campus Lantern Night
Makes Your Old Ones News Will Feature

uttons Decorate Summer Dress Coats I Riders Present

Have you noticed that hats have
been disappearing from the campus
However, that doesn't mean that
they're not fashionable anymore, just
that they're seen less often on the
head of the average coed. So what
new position does that give your old
hat? It means that if the average
costume is not liable to include them,
they can thereby add a dash and
bring attention to more sombre out-
fits. So aring out the snap brim
that you haven't touched in weeks,
and -see if you don't feel like a new
woman even though you're wearing
last spring's Easter suit.
Even better, get a new hat to add
the brightening touch. For campus
wear, spring's shining stars are cocoa-
nut straws. They're dark honey-
colored hats, and usually with some

bright color, or combination of colors,
wound around the crown. If you
want to feel light-headed, but look
like you have a hat on, cocoanut straw
is the answer.
In the evening, or for a Sunday
afternoon walk, wide brimmed halo
hats are a happy thought. They are
probabWry the most complimentary
type for any woman to wear, and are
adaptable to any material or any
color. Be sure, though, that you can
get it on and off easily, for if you
should decide to go dancing they're a
bit cumbersome.
There's a time when everyone wants
something on their heads, and that's
in rainy weather. Gabardine hats are
the most attractive things this occa-
sion can bring on. Made in every
color, they're pretty in the sunshine
as in the rain.

appearance of the Theta Xi song-
birds, winners of the Interfraternity

precede the contest will start from
the main library and continue past
the League to Palmer Field. Seniors
will be distinguished at the head of
the line by mortar boards and gowns,
plus Japanese lanterns.
"With Japanese shipments becom-
.ng more and more difficult," said
Marjorie Allison, '41, in charge of
!anterns, "the lanterns are corre-
spondingly more difficult to replace."
About sixty to one hundred of these
uminous symbols are destroyed each
near because of careless handling;
-he fine paper work has never been
reproduced by American labor.
Jane Grove, '41, heads the com-
nittee for Lantern Night arrange-
nents. She is assisted by Margaret
Van Ess, '41, in charge of the line
