with the renewal of the tremendous
rivalry which has existed between the
Law School and the College of Engin-

building many years ago.
Theme of the Slide Rule Ball will

the second is a sophomore working
busily over his books with women
on his brain; in the third is a junior,
busily engaged in activities, and bus-
ily thinking about the fair sex; and
in the fourth is a senior, disgusted
with women, work and activities.
Additional decorations will be a
collection of the insignias of the var-

Fashion Show
To Be Given
Couples To Model Date Clothes
At Union Ballroom Thursday
Fashions for couples will be the
key-word for the Union style show,
"Co-eds in Fashion," which is sched-
uled for 8 p.m. Thursday, in the large
ballroom of the Union.
What each party of a couple should
wear that will be complementary to
the outfit of the other has long been
a score on which women and their
dates miss fire completely. "Coeds in
Fashion" will present 24 couples mod-
eling clothes that belong together
for every occasion.
Tom Harmon will be the commen-
tator for the style show. A musical
setting for the costumes will be pro-
vided by Gordon Hardy and his or-
chestra, with Chan Pinney singing.
Fashions for spring, fashions for
spring picnics, canoeing, formals,
campus wear, riding-in short, fash-
ions for all occasions will be shown.
Admission will be free. Ten cpmpus
shops will contribute the clothes
which will be featured.,
Here, then, is an opportunity to
solve the problem of the man who
turns up with his shoes neatly shined,
and his suit carefully pressed, to find
the woman in the question habitually
in saddle shoes and babuschka.
