Helpless Designers Victims
Of Culture, Authorities Say
CHICAGO, Oct. 4-UP)--Ameri-
can women have the most glam-
orous hair in the world, an Aus-
tralianhair dresser saidetoday,
but "they must learn to relax" or
they will get that European
If milady doesn't stop letting
things get in her hair, said Fred-
eric Rau of Melbourne, her hair
"may fall out or at least lose its
luster," because "nerves have
everything to do with hair."
"In England hair is rotten to-
day," Rau told a reporter at the
National Hairdressers and Cosme-
tologists :Association meeting.
"The bombings did it. They
shattered women's nerves and
ruined their hair.
"Your American women have
the finest hair in the world and
enough money to keep it that way.
"But I wish the American wom-
an would slow down. Take it easy.
Steady her nerves. Or she will
look as if she was bombed, too."
The weekly Sunday Open House
will be held 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. to-
day in the Grand Rapids Room of
Entertainment will include
gaes and juke box music furnished
by the League social committee.

The decline and fall of milady's;
hemline has caused more furore
than anything since Dizzy Dean
tried to rewrite the grammar rules
for the King's English.
Before skirt lengths fall another
inch, you might as well know,
kiddies, that nothing short of a
scissors is going to shorten your
Those vile epithets you have
been hurling at the helpless de-
signer are futile. He, or she, like
the rest of us, is a victim of our
culture, according to Jane Rich-
ardson and Alfred L. Kroeber in
their study, "Three Centuries of
Women's Dress Fashions: A Qual-
itative Analysis," published in 1940
by the University of California
These cyclical permutations of
our calture, Prof. Kroeber thinks,
are priiaarily a departure from or
adherence to a constantly chang-
ing ideal for women's dress.
Designers Have Foresight
The part of particular individu-
als in molding basic dress style is
comparatively unimportant. Evenr
the great personalities of an age
do little more than change acces-
sories of fleeting mode. A success-
ful designer, however, Prof. Kroe-
ber says, has foresight enough to
recognize the coming of a new
War and social unrest tend to
precipitate a change in the ideal,
and thus tend to disrupt the estab-
lished dress style. In normal times
adds Prof. Kroeber, the ideal tends
to vary only slightly.
Prediction Is Unsafe
Anyone who attempts to predict
the whereabouts of the hemline
ten or 50 years hence, is putting
himself out on a limb. According
to Prof. Kroeber the only safe pre-
diction is change.
Already it has been alleged that
an upperclass coed followed by two
sorority pledges holding up her
train was caught trying to force
her way through the Union front
door. So you see, gals, there is no
use fighting this thing, it is bigger
than all of us.
Coeds interested in serving
on committees for Recogni-
tion Night may sign their
names on the list posted on the
bulletin board in the Under-
graduate Office of the League.
Women are especially needed
to help with refreshments, dec-
orations, and publicity skits
