What w11 you wear to J-Hop?
That's always a pleasing problem to
settle, and even more pleasing and
more of a problem this year be-
cause of the new innovation of the
second night dance. And to answer
the question probably the best peo-
ple to ask are the committee women
and the dates of the committeemen.
Chairman Lee Perry has asked
Carol Glidden to come from the
East for the memorable week-end,
and she sends ahead to The Daily
a description of her formal gown.
It has a gray and black taffeta
skirt with a black velvet, high-
backed bodice. The sleeves are
short, and, from the waist to the
neckline, will be lacing of the same
pattern as the skirt.
The next evening, to add dignity
to the informal dance, Carolyn Den-
field, co-chairman of patrons, plans
to appear in red and black. The
black will be a crepe skirt and the
red a fitted crepe jacket. It has
gold braid accents, long sleeves and
a high V-neck.
Lou Carpenter, partner in the
patrons chairmanship, will wear on
the Krupa-Scott night a peach
dress with draped satin bodice and
chiffon skirt. The neckline is heart
shaped, the straps of rhinestone
and the accessories silver.
Mary Major, who is to accompany
publicity chairman Dick Arbuckle,
suggests silk print as being ideal for
the informal night. Her dress, of pas-
tel pink flowers on a dark green back-
ground, has a V-neck and yoked
shoulders. The whole is accented
with brown accessories.
Argentina is the inspiration for
the formal that Frances Aaronson,
favors chairman, has chosen. The
black silk jersey top is long waisted
and has a high back, short sleeves
and a low neckline. The rhumba
skirt is made up of tiers of black
and white lace. Red shoes and a
red and gold earring and pin com-
bination completes the outfit.
Another lbng torso dress will ap-
pear in red silk and will be worn by
Deena Beiber, to bp escorted by Syd
Aronson, co-chairman of booths, on
Saturday night. The metallic ac-
cents are heightened with a gold
kid belt, and a foot-wide flounce is
at the hem. The round, yoked neck-
line has the bodice gathered under
Entirely individual will be May
New Lecture
And Roundtable
group Formed
For the purpose of stimulating con-
versation in French, a new lecture
and roundtable group has been
formed at the International Center.
The purpose of the club is to cre-
ate a typical French atmosphere to
provoke intelligent discussion on lit-
erature, politics and the arts. They
plan to have either guest speakers
or members of the group itself lead
the discussion. The club has planned
to meet at freouent intervals, twice
a month.
At the last meeting of the society,
Maud Callis, Grad., who has spent
a number of years in China studying
art, spoke on 'L'art du chinois,.
The next meeing of the society takes
place Friday, Jan. 31. Mr. Robert
Sethian will lead the discussion at
7:30 u.m. at the International Cen-
ter. All those who have a genuine in-
terest in French, are very cordially
invited to attend.
