invites all residents of the dormitory
in which she is visiting to listen to
or participate in the discussion. For-
eign students are especially welcome

Clever Novelty
Jewelry Is
Clever novelty jewelry has always
been an important accessory, but not
until lately has the jewelry been
really useful in an informative way.
Designers hit upon a good idea
when they thought up the college
football necklace. This necklace is
made of leather pennants. Upon each
pennant is placed the name of the
football team against which your in-
dividual school will play. After the
game is over and the score is an-
nounced, you may have engraved on
the pennant the football score. Thus
at the end of a football season, you
have a necklace with the scores of all
the games upon it.
Not quite as new, but still useful is
the patriotic necklace and bracelet
set and the political set. Both of
these inform all those with whom you
come in contact of your political and
patriotic beliefs. Perhaps the poli-
tical necklace with Willkie or Roose-
velt written on it would be a good
investment for most women. Then
if your date begins to undermine the
character of your favorite candidate,
all you need to do-is display the jewel-
ry, so that he will know he is tread-
ing on your toes.
In addition to its attractiveness,
novelty jewelry is also conversation-
provoking-a grand thing on a blind
Ode To A Sweater 'n' Skirt:
There was a young lady in college,
Who claimed that she came there
for knowledge;
But dating and beer
Really made it appear,
As if knowledge
Meant little in college.
