To Intensify
Eng ineer Feud
ert Glass, '41L, and Phillip Durfee,
At the present time the 'Raw Re-
view" is concerned with the results
coming in from its conducted poll
among the local campus queens. The
object of the poll has been to ascer-
tain the .preference among the beau-
ties as to which make 'the more de-
sirable prospects for husbands-law-
yers or engineers.
"At present the results have been
overwhelmingly in favor of the jur-
ists. The only discouraging return
was from one coed who reported she
was engaged to an engineer," Craft
said. He added, however, that her
answer sounded apologetic.
Trouble Brews
As regards the prospect of a more
realistic feud between the lawyers
and engineers this coming season,
the "Raw Review" committee feels
that the Lease-Lend Bill is too late to
aid the "decaying Sliding-Rulers?
It seems that in the good old days
the feuds were intense enough to em-
ploy the aid of stink bombs. The
lawyers concluded with saying, "The
most they (the engineers) can offer
is exemplified by their past actions
'and deeds which, at the most, only
amounted to a BIG ODOR."

Members of Kappa Delta Rho will
hold forth at an informal orchestra
dance to be held at the chapter
house. Ray Carey and his Campus
Knights will furnish the music and
the chaperons, all alumni of the fra-
ternity, are Mr. and Mrs. George
Spring Colors
Flatter Brunettes;
Woe To Blondes!
Brunettes, this is your Spring! The
colors most becoming to you are be-
ing worn this year more than ever
before. This winter's black, gray
and navy suits and coats that look so
stunning on blonds and redheads,
and, though well-tailored, just a little
drab on you, are being replaced by
brilliant ieds, greens, purples and
a variety of pastel shades.
America, designing her own fa-
shions this year for the first time in
history, is trying to throw off world
gloom and depression by making one
4 paramount keynote for the season-

nette than it does to any other type.

do for her, but some are better than
others, depending on eyes and com-
