Annual Soph Prom

To Be Held Dec. 13 In Union Ballroom

]ea er 9n Jier Cap-

Rings on her fingers, bells on her
toes, and she follows the rainbow as
she picks her clothes. At least that
was the opinion of a group of women
who, somewhere in this University,
fell on to the general subject of clothes
and from there to specific-colors.
It really isn't right to pass judg-
ment, they thought, on what one
likes or what is new in colors. They
should be chosen according to how
they go with the wearer. -Fads in
colors must be treated with the ut-
most care, for no amount of see-
ing a redhead in red will alter the
fact that it makes her hair look
How can one tell if a color is the
right thing? Skin tone is one ans-
wer. There are those who are of
the opinion that one's complexion
should be the only guide in the color
field. Using this method is largely
a matter of feeling. You look in
the mirror and a few moment's of
contemplation will tell you whether
its right or wrong.
A few generalities, however, can
be made. For instance, a dark com-
plected person should stay away
from an entire outfit of navy blue,
for the two are no compliment to
each other. On the other hand, one
with dark skin, especially a bru-
nette, has all the qualities of her
coloration brought out by more del-
icate tones like pink and beige. Un-
less those with very white, trans-
parent skins are adept with the
rouge in creating the effect of some
natural coloring, red or bright
greens leave only the clothes to be
looked at while the face with its
personality disappears. People
with extremely white skins should,
however, be first claimants to black
velvet for formal wear.
An easier, more obvious,way of
blending person and color is with the
hair. Red is this season's presenta-
tion to style. It brings up its prob-
lems. Although brunettes are quite
right in gleefully snatching it up to
cover themselves with, what about
blondes? Medium blondes and those
with chestnut hair may take it up
There are certain colors that be-
long to everyone. Black or light

each pair will indicate a page of the

There will be dancing and refresh-

are just crushed, the Wolverine will
reserve a table for you at a minimum
charge of 50 cents, if you will phone

ing of selling ideas is the most import-
ant item in the whole profession of
advertising, she believes, and while
the occupation means long hours and
hard work the exhilaration of the
job more than compensates.
"Most agencies employ more wo-
men than men,".Miss Devree encour-
agingly reports. She also feels that
college is valuable in that it gives
you some idea of the vast scope of
human knowledge and how to go
about getting information.
Good Salaries Possible
Financially a woman may start in
a clerical or subordinate position at
$20 to $25 a week, and there is the
opportunity to work up to a top-notch
copy-writing position paying a sal-
ary comparing favorably with those
in any business or profession, states
Miss Devree.
There are many varied fields be-
sides agency work in advertising. Pub-
licity, radio and the purchasing media,

"Good copy positions, especially in
department stores, are almost exclu-
sively the province of women," she
remarks. A college education, sales
experience and ad study are the pre-
requisites she lists for women enter-
itig the dynamic field of advertising.
Emily Post Gives
Campus New Rule
Emily Post's latest contribution to
college problems should also prove a
help to those who just can't remem-
ber someone's name. In her recent
article in "This Week" she stated
that one should never call another
person by name on the street (which
might include campus too.) Saluta-
tions should be "Hello," not "Hello,
Jim" and thus the necessity of re-
membering whether you just passed
Tom or John is alleviated. No more
guilty consciences, no more hurt feel-
ings, just remember Emily Post said
so. But what if Tom -or John hadn't
heard of Emily's new ruling? Some-
thing must be started to make this
