Yet there are individuals who ob-
serve that the two go hand in hand
though nominally working against
each other-that excellence in the
one is often linked with excellence in
the other.
Experience recommends experi-
ment. Unfortunately it's the only
answer. Seniors may well advise
freshmen on the question, and fresh-
men are wise to consult them, but-
the proper ratio between these two
forms of activity is an individual
matter and can only be solved by the
person involved.

Sport Clothes
Are Informala
Date Features
It is one thing to be well dressed in!
one's best clothes designed for dressy l
dates, but it an entirely different,
thing to look your best in a sweater'
and skirt or a casual sports dress.
This is one of the problemst that#
will probably confront you tomorrow
night whether you go to the Ice Car-
nival or to Mortar Board's Pay-Off
dance at the League. Both these
affairs are strictly informal and de-
mand a sweater and skirt. One might
say that it is a sort of a contest to
see who can look her best in such
a seemingly commonplace outfit..
Although the designers and stylists I
of the East are featuring a new short-
er length sweater, the long classic
style still remains the popular favor-
ite on campus. Naturally, with spring
just around the corner, pastel shades
are again in the limelight.
However these new sweaters do have
their points, not the least of these
being that they are new and unusual
in their weaves, yarns and accessories.
Interesting carved buttons of a deli-
cate pearl material add much to the
uniqueness of these sweaters.
For Pay-Off one of these new sweat-
ers should certainly be your choice if
combined with a light-weight flannel
skirt. If you are in the buying mood,
why not choose a bright new skirt
that fairly shouts of spring and war-
mer days to come? Your possible
choices here in town are innumer-
able as most of the shops have their
spring collections in stock now.
Delicate plaids on pastel or white
backgrounds are seen more than the
plain flanels and are the newest thing
of the season. Four and six gore
styles as well as finely pleated skirts
are more popular than less flared lines
this spring.
For the Ice Carnival you will want
to wear your warmer winter outfits.
But choose a bright angora or cash-
mere sweater, a classic wool dress and
your fur coat. We can speak from
experience that there is no place much
colder than the Coliseum if one is
just sitting and observing.
Whatever your costume for either
the Carnival or Pay-Off, be sure that
it is sporting, cheerful and at the
same time good looking

Seek 'Bloomer Girls'
For JGP, 'Hi-Falutin!'
Natural-born "bloomer girls" of the;
junior class are being sought out and
lured from retirement in order to
make their appearance in the 1940
JGP, "Hi-Falutin!"
Search for junior women to play
the part of this product of the first
decade of the 20th century was re-
vealed at the mass meeting held yes-
terday as with a "one-two-three"
step and intricate ballets the dances
which will be presented in the an-
nual play, March 13, 14, 15 and 16,
swung into action.
Requirements for the "ideal bloom-;
er girl" begin with ability to flit'
across the stage in.various awkward
positions, stated Virginia Osgood,
dance chairman.

it's because the term covers so broad
a field-the League with its multifar-
ious committees and projects, the
Women's Athletic Association, the
publication building embracing The
Daily, the 'Ensian, and Gargoyle, and
the various other forms of time-con-
suming conduct which refuse to fall
into these two divisions.
We suspect that tie difficulty is a
little less definite than a question of
what the merit system committee
does, and where the Children's
Theatre plays come from. It's more
a question of weighing the relative
merits of "activities" (there's some-
thing to be said for this personality
gag-how much depends on you) and
"academic attainments" (and there's
still plenty to be said for the life of
a scholar).
Obviously, a medium between these
two extremes is a good thing. It is a
fact that activities cannot exist with-
