:i-Falutin!' Is Selected As Juior Girls' Play


Gay Combinations
Help To Eliminate
Examination Blues
Have the January blues set in? Do
you feel that the prof has not noticed
your innate abilities? To pick you
up from that let down feeling that
comes with approaching finals, try
a new campus outfit."
If you are daring and want some-
thing very different, try the bowling
skirt. Of Dutch blue gabardine,
shirred about six inches through the
waist, it is divided to look like the
Dutch boy's pants it was copied from.
Little basque sweaters with gayly
colored embroidery set off the new
flaired skirts and are a pleasant
change from the "sloppy Joes.' In

bon with matching plaid skirt. These

Most women are so busy defending
the fashion trends to men of their
acquaintance, that they rarely stop
to. realize how perfectly ridiculous
some fads are.
Far be it from us to denounce any-
thing new and slightly batty in the
clothing line-frankly, we love it.
But if you have a few extra minutes,
pick up a copy of one of the better
style magazines ad glance through
it. Some of the things you find
therein should make you wonder to
what the female sex is coming-or
at least to what the fashion dictators
think we are coming.
On the cover of one of these maga-
zines this month there is a very exotic
blond (betwen two equally gorgeous
brunettes). One glance at lady num-
