Music for the annual winter en-
gineers' hop will be furnished by

which has recently completed an en-
gagement at the Waldorf-Astoria n
New York. The orchestra has at-
tained a great deal of popularity in
recent months playing at many of
the nation's largest hotels and mo-
tion picture houses.
The decorations for the dance will
conform to the spirit of "Modernism"
consisting of models of such thing'&
as the cross section of an engine, a
girder, a large gear, a pulley and
belt and a ladle filled with molten

J n Jep Cap-

While we still trudge the snow of
northern climes, style-setters are
busy presenting their new ideas
for a far-off time called spring. But
it would seem a lot closer if we actu-
ally could see the clothes we'll be
wearing then. By means of the fore-
casts in Mademoiselle, Harper's Ba-
zaar, Vogue, and - even more up to
the minute -The New York Times
report of "Fashion Futures", thatI
great spring style show held last
week, every one of us can gather up
enough notes for a very complete
picture of this coming spring and
Green is the color that New York
stylists want to make us conscious
of - consequently a heyday for
dark brownettes and red heads -
and it will be seen for everything
from lettuce green shantung casu-
al dresses to exotic white formals
with big, splashy green flowers on
them. Purple and orchid may make
a small comeback too.
Such colors fit in well with a new
love for Chinese effects. Mandarin
coats and house-boy jackets will be
worn with tassled pillboxes, coolie
hats or modifications of the head-
gear of dancing girls. High necked
dresses will feature braid and em-
broidery this spring, and with the
;ummer will appear coolie pajamas.
The Chinese emphasis is part
of the "fashion loyalties" trend to
honor the countries fighting for
their 'liberties. Others are tweeds
for England and -draped gowns
for Greece. And just for the sake
of salutation to our .neighbors,
there will be many frilled rhumba
skirts from South America. Colors
that fit this idea are "pursuit red,"
"pilot green" and cadet blue.
For loyalty to the United States
there will be lots of military, with
chevrons for decorations and straight
hanging pleated skirts or skirts with
a single front pleat fitting in well.
The big emphasis is on sailor styles.,
There'll be middie blouses over light
summer skirts and sailor hats with
long velvet streamers.
To compliment the military is
a rush for capes to be worn morn-
ing, noon and, so sweepingly and
romantically, at night. Clever
things can be done with linings
that match the costumes or that
contrast the outer side. Gold braid
or jeweled clips add dash to capes
The silhouette that plans to greet
the spring sunshine is very slim, with
shoulders rounded, but definitely not
drooped. Cape sleeves accent such
shoulders. .So for your spring coat,
pick something slim fitting, with
mammoth patch pockets.
Although there's to be many a
conservative, even'tailored, formal,
most evening dresses will either
"go native", or go "the South

American way". Bare midriffs are
for resort wear, and the sarong is
to be oft adapted for both evening
and bea6h wear. Lots of tucks and
drapes find a place in these tropi-
cal formals. Another trend will be
to big, checked "mammy" skirts
and bandannas for evening.-
Mammy will have her influence on
sports dresses too. But most sports
dresses will be sleeveless linens above
the knees and with scarves tied
around the neck. Summer sport
dresses are to be very, very short.
All sorts of things are being done
with stripes for spectator frocks,
and there will be, as usual, many
jacket dresses for town.
Slacks are to be tight fitting
and have long jackets, either fit-
ted or with short flaring tunics.
The long, straight English short is
still the favorite, some being worn
with hip-length jackets. Most
bathing suits will go native.
A florist shop is the only compari-
son for spring hats. There will be
lots and lots of flowers built up on
hats that come 'way, forward, pom-
padour hats on the back of the head,
or oriental turbans. But to save the
conservative co-ed from going hat-
less, little pillboxes will be arranged
in many - not too fancy - ways.
To bring you back to our winter
scene, here is Nancy Chapman, '42,
the Best Dressed Co-Ed of the
Week. She catches the eye with a
mink trimmed hat worn with a
mink-dyed muskrat, and, inci-
dentally, is known as a fashion in-
novater on campus, having been
among the first, for instance, to
wear a baby-bob hair-do or to
sport a fireman red jacket.
Professor Rieg
To Expect F
Editor's Note: This is the last in a
series of three' articles on the tech-
nique of obtaining employment. To-
day the writer is concerned with the
results of the interview.
"Don't expect to be hired on the
first interview," is the sound advice
that John W. Riegel, Professor of
Industrial Relations in the School
of Business Administration, offered
to prospective job-hunting students.
The ordinary response that the
applicant will receive after his in-
terview with an employer will be
noh-committal, Professor Riegel de-
clared. He warned those seeking
employment, however, against be-
coming discouraged .for it is not a
hopeless reply.
A man wants to think over the
possibilities of his applicant and pos-
sibly determine whether or not there
is a vacancy in his firm, Professor
Riegel explained during his analysis
of the art of seeking employment
by the college, graduate.
"One common error," he observed,
"is that the student does not make
this a real problem. Planning is
most important." Professor Riegel
emphasized the need for the would-
be employe to market his services to
more than one firm. He warned
against seeing one or two prospects
and then "going home to wait for
the phone to ring."
"In general, he advised, "it is a
good idea for the student to work
in home territory first. Here he can
make many canvasses for employ-
ment inexpensively and develop
After the initial interview, if re-
sults are satisfactory, a mention of
salary may be made. Professor Rie-
gel recommended that the applicant
refrain from mentioning the ques-
tion of salary until he is asked.
Then the strategy to be used is

to ask a price in line with the mar-
ket, he added. "Inquire previously

Sweater Hop
Will Feature
Bill Sawyer
Bill Sawyer and his orchestra have
been engaged to play at the Sweater
Dance to be given from 9:30 p.m.
to 1 a.m. tomorrow in the League
"Yes, My Darling Daughter," a
"super duper" swing number, will be
introduced by the orchestra, Sawyer
has promised. It is "the young maes-
tro's" latest swing arrangement and
he believes that it is the best one they
have introduced thus far.
Gwen Cooper, soloist with the or-
chestra, sings the leading role in
the arrangement and will be support-
ed by Sawyer's new vocal quartet,
"The Impossible Four." Big John and
Bob Holland will also be on hand
to lend their special styles of warb-
ling to the program.
Sawyer declares that "there will'
be no interruptions of any kind dur-
ing the evening, even for announce-
ments, and that a straight program
of regular dance music has been
planned, ASCAP tunes not excluded.
Dance tickets are priced at $1 per
couple, so if you haven't already
planned to go to the Engineer's Ball
Sawyer suggests that you don your
newest angora and dance the sweat-
er dance at the League,
Church Guilds
To Hold Party
The first joint party ever to be
held by the Methodist and Presby-
terian student guilds will be given
from 9 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. tomorrow
at the Presbyterian Social Hall.
Each guild will offer its best tal-
ent for the party including folk
dancing, group singing, games, spe-
cial music, and social dancing. All
students of Methodist and Presby-
terian preference and their friends
are cordially invited to attend, an-
nounced George Wills, '43E, and
Fritz Liechty, '43L, presidents of the
Presbyterian and Methodist guilds
respectively, and co-chairmen of the
The Presbyterian committee will
consist of Jack Weigel, '41, Bill Ja-
cobs, '42L, and Jack Edmonson, '42,
while the group from the Methodists
will include Jean Westerman, '42,
Jeanne Watson, '43, Byron Hatch,
'42, and Stan Summers, '44.
The chief purpose of the party,
as announced by its sponsors, is to
foster inter-guild participation in
handling all the various phases of
party planning and preparation, as
well as to afford students to become
better acquainted socially.

Most significant of Benny Good-
man's many tradition-breaking tri-
umphs is the Harvard-Goodman col-
lection of popular music, now per-
manently established in the Cam-
bridge institution's music library.
The top clarinetist, who will ap-
pear here Feb. 15 at the second night
of ,J-Hop, put his own "Goodman
Collection" of recent music at the
disposalnof Widener Library, when
it was announced that Harvard lT.i-
versity would set aside an annual
grant of $250 for the collection of
swing records.
Mlodern Music Valuable
Harvard. University deemed mod-
ern musis valuable in tracing the de-
velopinent of popular American song,
as does Goodman, who in his auto-
biography, "Kingdom, of Swing", de-
fined swing as "free speech in mulsic
for the musician - where a man can
express his own musical ideas with-
out the restriction of a 'sweet" or-
Included in the collection are many
fine early American rhythms, im-
portant because of the debt that
modern music owes to these basic
compositions. - The complementany
aspect of popular and classical mu-
sic is exemplified by the maestro's
recent appearance with the New
York Philharmonic-Symphony Or-
chestra, and the Rochestra Civic Or-
Fights Bad Swing
Although Goodman is known for
his famous renditions of such 'swing'
numbers as "One O'Clock Jump",
and "Don't Be That Way", both
among his favorites, he and his
whole band are fighting the evil
connotations that grade Z bands
have given the word "Swing". "Peo-
ple have forgotten," said the musi-
cian who has just won first place
in the last popularity poll of Down-

Stockwell Hall


Will Entertain
Faculty Today
Residents of Stockwell Hall, new-
est unit in the women's dormitory,
system, will entertain members of
the faculty and their wives at an
informal faculty dinner at 6:15 p.m.

the dinner will be Prof. and Mrs.
John L. Brumm, Prof. and Mrs.
George V. Rainish, Prof. and Mrs.
Lewis VanderVelde, Mr. and Mrs.
Frederick Crandall, Prof. and Mrs.
DeWitt H. Parker, and Prof. and
Mrs. Karl Litzenberg.

Beat, "that there's good and bad
swing, just as classical music may be
excellent or poor depending upon
the performer."
The fact that one. of the greatest
exponents of swing music is unable
to define his product is significant
in that it is an intangible thing; it
defies definition. Goodman's band
is fighting against the word "swing"
with music-"nameless music which
lies deep and ineradicable in this
country's soil and soul."
As Louis Armstrong says, "Swing
is the wavy I play a number", a mem-
ber of Goodman's band characterized
swing as "That thing without which
music just isn't as good as."
