to be congratulated," Miss Goldberg

Femininity is back ! Or have you
noticed? The girl who went out
dancing last year in a covered up,
pencil slim, conscientious little din-
ner dress, will greet her New Year's
Eve beau this year in a purely femi- i
nine confection of a dress, even more '
persuasive because of its long ab-
Up-to-date gals now realize the
potentialities of pink for that, ultra- I
feminine, clear eyed healthy took.
Also the powers of flattery in a long,
I softly, curling hair-do. In perfumes,
the intriguing scents desirable only
a year ago, are replaced by pretty
fragrances. Jewelry is less massive,
cosmetic shades more subtle.
It's all rather startling, after the
incessant droning of fashion maga-
zines advocating simplicity to the
point of severity. But this year, fa-
shion has an urge to beauty and a
reversion to becomingness. Psycho-
logically, it is probably woman's in-
born desire to flatter man, to please
the boys who are already home, and
to show her confidence that others
will soon be back. But no matter
what the reason, this queer phen-
omenon called woman has finally
realized that she is at her best being
f erninine.

University coeds desiring to become

III Stockwell Hall had their annual
Christmas dinner yesterday with Mrs.
Robert Mercer and Mrs. Mary C.
Bromage, both of the Dean of
Women's Office, as their guests. A
program of carols and the reading
of the Christmas story around the
lighted tree in Stockwell's spacious
lounge followed the dinner. Miss
Kaye Keyes, staff member, will di-
rect the Stockwell chorus when they
carol at University Hospital Thurs-
day night.
Dean Jeannette Perry was Mosher
Hall's guest at their dinner yesterday.
After dinner coffee was served in
the living room, preceding the pro-
gram. Included on the program was
a selection by the glee club, a read-
ing of the Christmas story, by Serene
Sheppard, and a solo, "The Holy
Mother" by Virginia Zapf. Christmas
carols followed the program, with
Mr. Wilborne Hill, Mosher house-
man, climaxing the evening by ap-

of Santa Claus. !
At Geddes House Wednesday, girls
were called for by a group of carolers
who led them into the dining room

dren in the hospital, were exchanged
by the girls, and will be sent to Uni-
