KeynoteOf Informality
Pay-Off, annual sweater and skirt
- dance sponsored by Mortar Board,
senior womens' honor society, will be
held from 9 p.m. to l a.m. Friday,
Feb. 23, in the League Ballroom.
Informality is the keynote of the
dance which is a women's invitational
affair. All women on campus may at-
The dance will be the third "Pay-
Off." The idea was originated in
1938 to provide an opportunity for
women to extend an invitation to their
escorts. It was hoped at that time
that the affair would become tradi-
Patricia Haislip, president of Mor-
tar Board, is general chairman of
the dance. Roberta Leete will direct
publicity and Jean McKay is in
charge of patrons. Ellen Redner is
head of entertainment, and programs
" will be under the direction of Mary
Honecker. Alberta Wood will direct
the ticket sale and the ballroom is
under the charge of Beth O'Roke..
McKinney's Cotton .Pikers furn-
ished the music for Pay-ff last
year. An original jazz toe dance by
Jeanne Burt, '40Ed., was an added
entertainment feature. Jenny Pet-
erson, '39, was general chairman of
the dance. In addition to the wear-
ing of sweaters and skirts to empha-
size informality, vegetable corsages
for the men were sold by Mortar
Board preceding the dance.
Jimmy Raschel and his' z;rchestra
played for the dance the year before,
the original "Pay-Off."
Plans for the annual affair were
made at a meeting of the honor soci-
iety held Wednesday.
Winter Sports
Feature White
Skating Outfit
Now that finals and cold weather
are making their debut together, an
ideal form of relaxation from those
long hours of studying is ice skating.
And when you wear the stunning new
creations for skating, your pleasure
will be twice as great.
For the woman who can be certain
of remaining on her feet while skat-
ing, the white corduroy outfit is very
attractive. The jacket is double
breasted with a reverse collar, the
.only trimming being the brass but-
tons. The knee-length skirt is lined
with red.
Floral designs on a white cotton
quilted background is also very smart.
In addition, the sleeves and neck are
- trimmed with black velvet. The
skirt for this outfit is black-the
Jacket red. Another variation of this
style is the floral design for the lin-
ing, with red cotton quilting forming
the outside of the jacket.
Ski suits are still as chic and
practical as ever, although they have
been somewhat outshadowed by the
- more striking skating skirt outfits.
Two woolen outfits are especially at-
tractive. The red one is very simple,
trimmed merely with a black zipper
fastening, and a black zipper pocket.
A brown set had a lastex tri-colored
-waistband, and buttons down the
front, topped with a simple shirt
collar. Similar outfits are to be
found in gaberdine.

Unfortunately, there are thousandst
of "best-dressed" girls and women in
every college and in every town in the
country. Naturally, only a compara-
tively few of them can become de-1
signers. What then, you ask, are theI
qualties that distinguish these few
from the rest?
Designer Termed 'Idea-Woman'
The successful designer might be
termed an "idea-woman." She must7
have a great deal of originality com-
bined with the ability to look be-
yond the accepted fashions of the
day, for after all, it is her duty to
keep the, styles from becoming static..
If the clothes shie originates are mere--
ly in keeping with the trends of the.
present, she will soon lose her-market.
It is a decided asset for the amateur
who is seeking such a career to be
able to draw. Her prospective em-
ployer will invariably ask to see
samples of her work, and it would be
very cumbersome to have to carry
around finished garments.
The young designer must also be
a seamstress. While she is in the
lower-income class,. it is more than
likely that she will have to drape and
sew up her own brain-children. Large
firms demand quick work on the part
Rooms In New Dorm
Will Be Ready Feb. 10
Applications for rooms in Stock-
well Hall are still being accepted at
the office of the Dean of Women.
The new women's dormitory will be
ready for occupancy Feb. 10, and all
women will move into their rooms on
that date.
Many of the rooms are already
complete with furniture and the
others will be finished before the sec-
ond semester begins.

Many manufacturers object to in-
experienced designers because they
refuse to "subjugate their art" and,
realize the practical considerations
which are necessary. It is excellent
experience for the girl who wishes to
become a designer to supplement her
actual training with a period of ap-
prenticeship in the form of selling.
clothes. Here she is given ample op-
portunity to discover what the people
who will be her future customers
wants to wear.
This article should not be as dis-
couraging as it may seem. If you are
good, these obstacles will not hinder
you in your progress. If they appear
insurmountable to you, then it is en-
tirely probable that designing should.
not be your chosen field.
Like all popular professions, design-
ing is overcrowded. Once you have
crashed its gates, however, opportuni-
ties for advancement are infinite and
the monetary proceeds are lucrative.
