Novel Designs
To Be Shown
In Shoe Styles
So your size fours (or eights) ar
itching for something new and dif-
ferent in the way of shoes to ador
them! Well, from the looks of things
the shoe designers haven't missed a
trick to please your taste.
We'l mention the spectator pumr
first because youve never seen suc
a variety of styles emerging frorr
the standard brown and white o
black and white, as there is forthis
summer. There are also beige anc
white, blue and white, and especially
new, attractive patent leather and
white, or if you want something really
novel, try that snappy combination
of white specs with snakeskin toes
and heels.
Variety In Design
Not only is there a variety in colors
but also in design this year! We've
seen specs with or without toes, and
on some of the newest ones, there's
a perky little bow to match the con-
trasting color, which you can put
on or take off at your heart's desire.
Now that we've covered the specs
we'll go onto some of the styles that
are making first appearances right
now. Fabric shoes, of course, are
up there in the running. There's an
especially smart pair of pumps made
up of beige rough fabric. Linen is
to be seen in all colors, but there's a
pair of red linen sandals we saw that
would take anybody's eye-they're
wedge-heeled, with latticed toes.
Mesh For Coolness
White mess fabric shoes look like
the 'best bet to keep your feet cool
and yet smart in the hot weather
that's coming; They come in san-
dals, pumps, oxfords, almost any style
you can mention, and they're comfort
plus. For anyone who desires the
latest in shoe modjes, there's an ultra-
sophisticated little pair of pumps
made of that transparent fabric
which looks like glass.

Impertinent Petitioner Puzzles
And Amuses Judiciary Council

Fairly Normal Life Continues
In Midst Of War, Letter Says



A second letter, written in April,
came the other day from Dorothy
Diamond in England. It had been
opened by examiner 6395.
"At the moment," she says, "I'm
(thoroughly enjoying life. It takes con-
ditions like those under which we are
at present living to make one realize
just how adaptable man is. Just like
you, at one time I would never have
thought it possible to lead a fairly
normal life with such devastation
always imminent; yet there are days
when the war can almost be forgot-
ten were it not for the black-outs.
Describes.War Days
To us, here in America, certainly
her description of the first few days
at war would be interesting. "The
first few days of war have impressed
themselves in my memory, never to
be forgotten. They seem to be full
o flurry and calm, anticipation and
fear and wonder. My elder brother,
Roland, was full of patriotism and the
longing to do something active. He
had, joined the Territorials and has
been spending two nights a week
training so he is already a well-
trained soldier."
The dinner table that night had
shrunk to a bare four, for they had
packed the younger brother and sis-
ter off to the country where arrange-
ments had been made for the schools
to function and Roland had been
First Impressions
Dorothy tells her first impression
of the black-out in these words: "I
had arranged to go to the Shake-,
speare memorial theatre at Stratford-
on-a-von to see "The Tempest." When
we came out of the theatre every-
thing was in complete darkness -
no one had thought to bring torches!
It seemed almost uncanny, as we
drove along miles of country lanes
not to see the usually brightly lit
windows of the farms and cottages."
Her recreation was most striking

when England declared war. "I shall
never forget the shiver that ran down
my spine when I heard the Prime
Minister say the actual words, 'we are
at war!' I felt that I had to find
out that everything was still O.K. at
home, although I knew perfectly well
that nothing could have happened.
I was surprised to find that the
streets and roads looked just the same
and that people were walking about
just as though such a momentous
thing had not taken place.
Dorothy celebrated her 21st birth-
day in March, but she says that any
big celebration will have to be post-
poned until after the war, and since
Roland's 21st birthday was just after
the outbreak of the war, Dorothy
says, "we've decided to have a really
big double affair after the war even
if we are middle-aged!"

The petition was outstanding in
the eyes of Lorraine Judson, '43, of
Judiciary Council. "Roberta Shedd"
was the name penciled in the upper
Scribbling carelessly in the various
blanks, Miss Shedd had continued
with her various qualifications. She
had, she declared, a C to D scholas-
tic average and was queen of the
May in high school.
Sketches Cartoon
The petition suggested, "If you
have not enough room write on the
back of the sheet." "O.K.," retorted
Roberta and turned the sheet over to
draw a grinning cartoon with the la-
bel, "My boyfriend, Joe Gooch, and
how happy he'll be if I get this ap-
The petition was, in short, every-
thing that a petition should not be,
including late. And true to her form
as the typical unpopular petitioner,
"Miss" Shedd waited until the last
few minutes of the last day of inter-
Roberta Interviews
Then to the amazement of all,
including Jane Baits, '42, head of ,
Judiciary Council, Bob Shedd, alias
"Roberta," minced nervously in. He
took a chair before it was offered
him, and asked in a high falsetto, as
he set about to break all the rules of
interviewing etiquette, "Ja mind if I
smoke?" Without awaiting an an-
swer he lit a cigarette.
The first thing Miss Baits asked
for, when she recovered from sur-

prise, was his eligibility card. "Oh,
sure!" giggled Shedd, but after a
fruitless search thu dtheuthick pile
of papers on his lap-which he con-
tinuously dropped on the floor, said,
"I guess I forgot it. But I'm awfully
eligible! "
Shedd Sheds Tears
When asked what his ideas were,
"Miss" Shedd said, "I think we
should have May dances," although
the suggestion was entirely irrele-
vant to the position in question. No
amount of tactful explanation would
convince him of the impracticality
of his suggestion. "And I think the
League should cooperate more with
the Union, and I think-" he went
on stubbornly, explaining his the-
Judiciary Council tried to urge
"Miss" Shedd to go. Their time had
extended far over bounds. His lips
trembled and he nearly burst into
tears, but finally consented to force-
ful evacuation.
After he had left, the council con-
ferred awhile on his qualifications
for a League position. It was de-
cided, then, that he would make a
fair chairman of entertainment for
the Judiciary Council. But as an
example of all the interviewing
"don'ts" in action he was worthy of
