School Colors
To Be Feature
Of Senior Ball
Diplomas, Ligbts, Ira)cI
Figures Of Graduates
Will Decorate Ballroom
Life not only "begins wi 40", ac-
cording to the senior catch-phrase,
but it also has a classic lilt to it, if
the Grecian lines of the tall white'
columns that will decorate the In-
tramural Building, June 14, at Senior
Ball, are any indication.y
However, the year 1940 will be
brought into sharp relief, and ancient
Greece will disappear upon closer ex-
amination of the columns. They are
to be huge diplomas of dead white,
tied with great maize and blue rib-
bons, Annabel Dredge 'and James
Wills, co-chairmen of decorations,
have announced.
Columns, Color Combine
Between the columns the tall win-
dows will be draped with soft folds
of color. The entire length of one
side of the ballroom will be hung
with maize, and the opposite side
with blue.
Overhead, side draperies will meet #
the folded ceiling valances of con-
trasting color, so that the total effect'
of the ceiling will be a maize and
blue arrangement leading the eye to
a painted drop, at the far end.
Magazine Cover Bright
Resembling the cover of Life maga-
zine, this drop will feature the figures
of a boy and girl dressed in cap and
gown, stepping forth from the maga-
zine to the ballroom.
Softening the classic simplicity of
these lines will be a skillful arrange-
ment of pale lights filtering through
the diploma columns. In contrast to
the rest of the ballroom, the magazine
cover will be brilliantly illuminated.

leann Miller's Soloist


Oser /ere


(Editor s Note: The opinions ex-
pressed herein are the writer's own;
The Daily assumes no responsibility
for them.)

Perhaps it's coincidence that the
events of September 1, 1939, which
furnished the inspiration for the title
of this column should cause it to
have peculiar significance as Ger-
many threatens Paris on the eve of
Swing Out, one of the oldest of Uni-
versity traditions.
It's not callous indifference to the
danger threatening the United States'
traditional allies which leads us to
point out the ironical connection, but
a still-firm conviction that war does
not solve the difficulties of the uni-
verse and a belief that to turn "Over
Here" into "Over There" would spell
disaster for the one corner of the
earth in which sanity still reigns.
It is not the business of a Woman's
Page column to delve too deeply into
the why's and wherefore's of the
world-we don't pretend to know the
answer to the difficulties which are
ravaging Europe. We only know that
we feel that to sacrifice the genera-
tion of which we are a part seems to
be making sacrifices without hope of
achieving anything by the sacrifice.
Rather than to pour the men who
will make up two thirds of the Swing
Out column into a war which the
greatest of our historians and states-
men cannot decipher into terms of
right and wrong, we would take our
chances on the future in exchange
for an uninterrupted college career
for our successors and a hope that
our own futures won't be blighted by
the horrors of war itself and of its
even more threatening aftermath.
This is not the argument of the
men who pose as wisest, merely the
plea of the generation which is most


Suits Retreat
~tTo Simplicty
Included with simple swim suits
this season, the summer resorts will
display a bevy of bathing costume
sets that replace last season's dress-
maker type of suit.
Fancy dressmaker suits have com-
pletely metamorphosed into conserva-
tive tailored types which permit that
50-yard dash to the raft. One style
that is riding the crest of the popu-
larity wave is a conservatively cut
printed cotton with a separate wrap-
around skirt that ties in a decorative
bow in front.
Topping a shining black lastex suit
which features the new ballet skirt,
a whitechenille reefer coat makes an
outstanding costume to wear on the
beach. But, if you favor the All-
American material, cotton, and de-
sire a costume which when complete
is a dress, there is a special model
for you. A gay green and yellow
leafy-diamond print two-piece swim
suit has an attachable dirndl skirt
and a chic little bolero to match.
For a variation of the usual suit
a white sharkskin is inviting with a
bright blue finger-tip blouse to slip
on when the sun has departed in
the West. A white sharkskin skirt
edged in blue completes the outfit
for a casual summer dress.
