Wedding Gown
For Elizabeth
LONDON, Nov. 4--(IP)-Princess
Elizabeth's wedding gown-about
the biggest secret around these
parts since General Eisenhower
picked a D-Day--is a lush creation
that likely will knock the word
"austerity" right smack out of the
royal vocabulary.
This is not one of those uncon-
firmed reports which are a dime a
dozen around the wedding prepar-
ations. I saw the skirt of the dress
and some sketches of the whole
thing at a private preview this af-
ternoon in designer Norman Hart-
nell's swank Bruton Street fashion
Every representative of the pub-
lic prints who got into the place
had to sign written promises to
keep their mouths shut about the
whole business until the day of
the wedding, because the Princess
doesn't want every fashion shop
to have replicas of her dresses in
the windows before she even gets
to wear them herself, 17 days from
So my lips are sealed, as they
say. But if anybody tells you the
Princess is going to be just a
plain Jane when she treks the
middle aisle over the tombs in
Westminster Abbey, he's relating
an opinion through a large Stet-

Volleyball, badminton and paddle
ball have been added to the list of
activities. Swimming will be di-
vided into two periods, a 7:30 to 9
p.m. and a 9 to 10:30 p.m. period.
By this new plan the board
hopes to eliminate the crowded
conditions which have previous-
ly existed in the pool. Gymnas-
tic equipment, including the use
of the trampoline, will be avail-
able for use in the side rooms.
Bridge will be offered for those
who wish quieter recreation.
Throughout the year exhibitions
will be featured during the eve-
ning. Professionals will perform
on some occasions with demon-
strations by members 'of women's
athletic clubs at other times.
Among these clubs will be swim-
ming, tennis and golf.
The sports night program will
be open to all students, and
identification cards will be re-
quired. Exception will be made
so that wives of students may
also attend the program. Offi-
cials of the joint board will wear
white shirts and blue ribbons for
identification. Questions about
facilities may be addressed to
these students. Suggestions as
to further improvement of the
program may be offered to them 1
for consideration of the board.
Women members of the board
are representatives of the Wom-
en's AthleticAssociationBoard. E

Sports Plan
Will Aid Coed
Physical Education Shown
To Improve Student Health
Shouts of "fore" and "thirty-
love" are heard four days each
week as 850 University women
participate in the program of
Physical Education required by
the Board of Regents ruling.
Thirty-two classes, each meet-
ing two days a week, are offered
to help women develop a feeling
of well being, a degree of skill, and
of most importance, to attain a
love for the sport which will con-
tinue after the required work is
In providing a program for
the individual student the de-
partment takes into account the
experiences the student has had
in high school. The medical ex-
amination given to each coed
entering the University is used
as a basis for estimating and de-
veloping-the physical potentiali-
ties of the student.
Standards are set up by the de-
partment so that a well-rounded
experience may be obtained.
Dance, team sports, or individual
sports may be recommended if
the student has not had sufficient
experience in the field.
Any woman student may en-
ter the Posture, Figure and Car-
riage Clinic designed to help in-
dividuals with particular prob-
lems in this field. The student
may come to the clinic on her
own initiative or may be re-
ferred to it by the Health Serv-
Sports are centered at the Wom-
en's Athletic Building and Palmer
Field during the present outdoor
season. Barbour Gym is used for
dance classes and the "bathtub"
for swimming, during the indoor
season, activities center at the
Gym. Intermediate swimming and
Life Saving classes are held at the
Union Pool.
Dr. Margaret Bell, Chairman
of the Department of Physical
Education for Women, plans for
the future of the department.
An extended program would in-
clude an increase to three or
four hours each week of re-
quired sports.
This is speculation, for facilities
are at present limited, both as to
staff and physical pant. One of
the most acute needs is the long
discussed Women's Swimming

t ,~v-'af .. lrlf fi IIn t

You've reached a point where you wonder
if you ever will know what you really do
think ! This time last week you blew dead south. But so
many things have happened since then to change your direc-
tion to due north. Right now 3ou feel rudderless... and
Somebody asks you to go somewhere.You can't make up
your mind. You answer "maybe" or "I'll see"... vaguely put-
ting off the chore of coming to grips with a decision. You
don't know what you want to do. You can't decide what to
cat ... what to wear...who to call ....what to think. You have
moments when you feel completely unstrung.
And for some of you those moments last for years. You
never quite get yourselves collected. You keep blowing hot
and cold. Going overboard for things one minute...avoiding
them like the plague 'the next. Falling head over tincups
for people one week...blithely ignoring them the next.You
wear your emotions lightly on the sleeve. And people think
yours is a fickle eye.
They could put their finger on you more readily if your
pros and cons stood lined up in plain sight. If you'd make
it known which foot you stand on. If your opinions and
interests were definite.You'd be easier to cope with...and
to catalogue ... if you weren't so changeable.
When you were twelve you were positive you'd grow up
to be a missionary. When you were fourteen you were
equally sure you'd have separate rooms when you got mar-
ried.When you were fifteen you knew you'd found the love
of a lifetime. You may not now agree with your former self.
You've accumulated information, experience, new points of
view to color your thinking.
So think as straight as you can right now. Be flatfooted
in your convictions-but keep on learning new ones. Have
reasons for your tastes. Make sharp decisions. It's not a
fatal operation to change your mind!
