Swing Rivals Sweet
One reason for his lasting popular-'
ity is the versatility of his arrange-
ments. Record sales show that his
swing numbers are as enthusiastically
received as his sweet tunes.

Benecke does novelties; Miller has al-

BREEZE-COOL summer shoe

Low peg-top heel.

"Roll your own," will be the slo-
gan of American women this sum-
mer and it won't apply to cigarettes
or stockings, but to those new
- crinkly "broomstick" skirts, bor-
rowed from the Indians.
r These gay garments come in a
variety of bright cotton prints and
get their name from the fact that
their crinkly pleats are obtained by
winding and tying them around a
broomstick while still damp and al-
lowing them to dry in this manner-
reputedly an old Navajo trick. In
the modern version the stick is not
borrowed from the nearest kitchen
but is a little bamboo one that comes
with each skirt.
These typically American styles
come in street and floor lengths and
will be worn on the campus and
beaches, yet they are equally appro-
priate for a picnic or a dance.
They may be worn with shirt-
waists, dainty white blouses, or, if
you prefer the peasant effect, with
an embroidered one of the Hun-
garian variety.
Continue Interviews
Interviewing for Soph Cabaret will

mittee organization.
