WITH THE SEIGE of mental duress
fast closing in, thoughts of
clothes are limited to two major
considerations; one, how to find time
to keep cottons wearable, and two,
how to find time and resourcefulness
enough to cram three trunkfuls of
clothes into one.
But since The Clothesline is hav-
ing similar confugalties, don't expect
to find any great revelation here. In-
stead, we have every intention of
blithely rambling on, as far from
pertinent topics as possible.
As a matter of fact, it's amazing
what a lift bogged down exam morale
can receive from treating yourself to
a new outfit, or even a pair of shoes.
Being hard. under the influence of
philosophy and Neitzsche at present,
we must admit that a sartorial
splurge is merely a means of escape
-but at least, it's a good one.

rior costumes. A definitely covered-
up look is kept in front, some even
have hints of sleeves, but backs are
as completely bare as custom allows.
Brief skirts slashed to the length
of verra-short shorts are usually
pleated widely in unpressed pleats.
Wide leather belts cinch in the sun
gal's waist and complete the outfit.
One of the most striking of these
newest ideas in playclothes is of gray
butcherdrayon, finished off with a
wide red polished leather belt.
Designers this season seem to dis-
dain the common in playclothes, and
another new idea adapts the versa-
tile leotard as a basic form. Sleek
fitting and slim, these suits are strik-
ingly plain. The covered-up look pre-
dominates again, with simple round
necklines holding the spotlight. Short
sleeves complete the modest illusion,
which a downward glance contradicts
emphatically. Skin tight and brief
shorts are either diaper wrapped or
sarong style. Others feature legs cut
up almost to the waist on the out-
sidt. Again, the wide belt provides
the finishing touch.
FOR THE GAL with less sleek as-
pirations, fashion has provided the
exact opposite of these sophisticated
playsuits in femininely frilled styles.
Bloomers are unmistakably back in
all their pert glory and have readily
been adapted in playclothes. The
round look, decreed by Paris, is em-
phasized even more by the use of
ruffles, row on row, on the bottom
of shorts and bloomers.
One particularly attractive outfit
is of old fashioned checked gingham
and consists of shorts ruffled from
the hips down and a bra made com-
pletely of narrow ruffles. The brief
sun suit is topped by a short coat
will full push-up sleeves and cut to
flair in back.
MORE PROSAIC, but still practi-
cal, are the one piece short suits
with matching skirts. Designed to
defy discovery, many of these may be
worn as dresses, with nary a thought
of propriety. Definitely "this year"
are the smooth wraparound semi-
draped skirts which tie at the side.
Playshoes are as varied as ingenu-
ity can make them and finish off
new playclothes in a dash of glory.
Probably the most daring are thong
sandals. Their claim to fame is their
cool comfort, consisting of only a
sole, an instep strap, and a single
strip of leather from the instep which
fastens between the first and second

Because the ountry was at wiar,
the Council decidedtl to replace Soph
Cabaret, a traditional social event
since 1929, with Soph Project to pro-
vide particular service work for
sophomore women. Due to the ur-
gent need of aides by the hospitals,
the plan was later expan(led to in-
clude all eligible coed.
a Coeds were requested tosign for
at least 4 hours ofat'l..sp ial work
per week. A training period of sev-
eral weeks initiated the volunteers
to hospital ethics and routines. af-
ter Wlich each person waS assignied
to a definite station to be covered
each week.
The specific duties of these volun-
teers were varied and included: car-
ing of patients' flowers; passing
nourishments, food trays, and ice
water; putting away clean linen;
cleaning instruments; taking patients
to clinics; passing mail; and directing
afternoon visitors.
The true value of the volunteers
was that she could relieve the
nurses of so many small tasks that
prevented them from attending to
their more urgent technical duties.
The coed, too, could make life more
pleasant for the patients by doing
little services that the nurses and
ward helpers had no time to do.
During the war the program met
with considerable enthusiasm on the
part of the students. More than 200
women signed up for work during the
first semester that it was in opera-
tion, and contributed approximately
50 hours per person.
Although Soph Project was orig-
inally developed as a war measure,
its services merited perpetuation of
the program. During the past year,
the enrollment of women was not
as high as that of the war years,
but the demand has not been as
According to Mrs. Elizabeth Mc-
Coy, supervisor of the Volunteer Ser-
vice at University Hospital, "The
past year has been successful because
of the marked enthusiasm shown by
the students, who, no longer bur-
dened by the war effort, came to work
by their own volition."
Yolunteer work in Soph Project
has not been merely a one-sided
sacrifice on the part of the workers.
Many women Have gained valu-
able experience in the fields in
which they plan to concentrate.
Volunteering has provided the op-
portunity for future nurses to
familiarize themselves with the

general '7nditions seen in the

chemistry laboratories has also aided
some coeds in preparin- for their
future jobs as laborat ory assistants,

Hospitol has written recommenda-
tions to place some of the students in

during the summer.

nounced by cynth ia )C o ter present
