Deck Dancing Will Be Outside'
"Ship ahoy!" will be the call at
10 p.m., May 29, at the Sports Build-
ing, when those attending Senior
Ball leave port for a pleasure cruise
aboard a large battleship.
While the cruise may not be an
actuality, the dancers' imaginations
will not have to be overworked if
the promises of Phoebe Power, '42A,
decorations chairman, are kept. The
theme of the ball will be nautical
with an emphasis on the militaristic
side of rolling waves and cruising#
Battleship Bandstand
The winner of the "Pick-Your
Band" poll will arrange his orches-
tra on the decks of a replica of a
large battleship. "This battleship3

walls will be covered with blue voile,
and the ceiling in red and white
The ship deck scene will be car-
ried throughout the ballroom, trans-
porting the entire party from the
Sports Building to dancing under a
full moon, amidst cool breezes. Mo-
ther Nature permitting, the moon
and the breezes will be actualities.

door dance floor.
Tickets Still On Sale
The theme for Senior Ball will be
in keeping with the season of the
year, in that the following day is
Decoration Day. "Holding the dance
the day before a holiday will be an
added convenience to those attend-
ing from out of town," announced
Tom Williams, '42, chairman.
The few remaining tickets will be
on sale at the Union desk for the
first few days of this week. Those
who have not as yet purchased their
tickets are assured by Williams that
their votes will be counted in the
band poll.

fancy, that!
It all happened in the Garden of
Eden. "Adam," said Eve, "you're de-
pressed. Enough of these fig leaves!
Your morale needs a boosting so I'm
going to start a wardrobe."
It's the gospel, really. A dress man-
ufacturer told me. He swears by this
bit of history and has been righteous-
ly spouting the philosophy behind it.
Just in case you haven't been aware,
it reads something like this: "Keep
up the morale of your men by don-
ning the most glamorous creation ob-
tainable at the general store. Dress
up for morale!"
The Idea's I'
The idea has caught on, but we'll
be darned if we'll be taken in. The
way we see it is that the clothing
manufacturers are scared - plenty
scared-that the Government will
cut the production of evening go'ns
and that wome will subsequently
lose interest in fashions. So they're
doing a little flag waving on their
Before we go another "graph" of
the way, we'd like to vehemently de-
clare that, along with Glamourpuss
Gertie, we won't let formals go the
way of all frills-unless such a step
would definitely be of some value.
But we don't see how Johnny's mor-
ale will be maintained by so many
square, bare inches.
Clothes And Poise
If women continue to "dress pret-
ty" it will be, as always, an expres-
sion of their own intrinsic nature. If
there are men around, it's the way
of women, that's all. Although clothes
aren't the factor that attract men,
it's the poise and self-confidence that
clothes inspire that does the trick.
A well-dressed woman is much more
effective than a drab one. Conse-
quently, this morale propaganda is
pretty bad unless it's the morale of
the women that it's aimed at.
So far, it's still possible to purchase
a dreamy job for that dream date
whether for morale or not, and, ac-
cording to "them that know" there
won't be as many square, bare inches
as one would suppose what with the
cry of conservation to be heard on
every side. In fact the trend is quite
definitely toward cover-up in the
summer formal news.
Frills Are Patriotic
Everywhere you will find little
turn-over collars, buttons down prim
bodices, and a shirtwaist-look made
sophisticated by tucks, shirring and
applied details. There are lots of ex-
ceptions and one which is particu-
larly fresh, is a candy-striped bodice
top of taffeta made with torso length
lines. It tops a mound of white ruf-
fles each of which is edged with the
same striped material.
No, it's not unpatriotic to buy these
frilly affairs because dealers are just
that anxious to clear their decks
while they have the merchandise.
Have fun, but as Adam said to
Eve, "That snake in the grass had
ulterior motives. Morale, fancy that!"
I Might Reconsider

Women who were prospective re-
cruits for the Army and Navy will
have to postpone their service careers
because the Senate is worried.
That legislative body is concerned
over the broad terms of a bill which
would permit women to volunteer
for naval duty. The bill has gone
through the House but has been
balked in the Senate because, as one
Senator puts it, as the bill stood, a'
woman could become an admiral in
charge of the fleet.
As a result of this opposition, the
"sailorette" proposal will be com-
pletely overhauled by the Naval Af-
fairs Committee. The measure now
allows women to enter the Naval Re-
serves with no restrictions on where
they might serve; nothing would bar
feminine gun crews or sub torpedo-
women; no limit would be set on the
rank, nor on the number that might
be recruited.
Edith Nourse Rogers, Massachu-
setts Republican, proposed that the
Army incorporate the Women's Corps
rather than leave it as a separate or-

ganization. The Senate Military Af-
fairs Committee has already worked
over this bill and has amended it to
provide that "no member of the Wo-
men's Army Auxiliary Corps shall be
called upon to engage in combat,"
and limits the number in the corps
to 150,000. No age limit was set.
At some time in the future, when
the House and Senate agree on the
terms of a woman's recruiting plan,
the feminine gender will be faced
with the ultimate decision of con-
tinuing with their lives as such or
offering their services to the Army
or Navy.
It might be well to remember that
the Women's Corps will be a perma-
nent career for the duration. It will
be under the same army regulations
as every other division; enlistment
will be "for keeps."
