Simplicity was the virtue of the

One fraternity celebrated the
Irish day, and one guest re-

board four - leaf - clover. It
weights down her board, but
happily, is balanced by the

there remains the program evi-

slyly with one man to the Soph

after with some "black feet."

Here we are fortunate enough
to have also an array of colorful
fashions from far off countries,
among them outstanding exam-
ples of Indian and Chinese ward-
The sari, customary dress of the
women from India seen on cam-
pus, differs in its length of yard-
age, color and design according to
the town or province and caste of
the wearer. This gown is usually
made of a very fine material, often
hand-woven a n d embroidered
pure silk, linen, or material simi-
lar to our chiffon. Although the
younger generations have nation-
alized the five yard sari, the older
women still wear one of nine
yards, according to Indumati Ten-
dulkar of Bombay.
In strong contrast to some of
thenbeautiful and ornate saris
are those worn by the workers of
Gandhi. He himself emphasized
simplicity and this feature can
be found in the plain white,
rather coarse, homespun mate-
rials worn by them.
Men in India need not bemoan
the latest creation, for the women
wear no hats, but as a sign of
modesty at times may drape the
upper part of their saris about
their heads.
FORMERLY the only cosmetics
used by the Indian women

was the small red spot centered
on the forehead, which is compul-
sory for the married women. Now
the young girls and society have
also brought in powder, and per-
haps some lipstick.
Esther Shen of Canton, China,
describes their current fashions
as "very simple." The Chinese
dress is one piece, never belted,
with no diagonal cuts. Its dis-
tinguishing features are the typ-
ical Chinese high collar, often
copied here, and slits on the
sides for free movement. The
length may be from below the
knee to the ankle. The type of
material and not the length de-
termines the occasion for which
the dress is worn, but each is
tailored for its individual wear-
er since ready made, stores are
unknown in China.
Shanghai is the Paris or New
York of China in fashions. Its
"latest" is shoulder padding in
dresses and the bun in hair styles,
since Chinese women wear no hats
either. However, Shanghai obvi-
ously is feeling the occidental in-
fluence for Chinese girls are rap-
idly becoming Americanized in use
of cosmetics and permanents.
Althought the Far East is pick-
ing up more and more of our fash-
ions, with such examples of unus-
ual clothes on our campus it may
prove an incentive for New York
to look to Bombay or Shanghai
for a few ideas in fashion.

Even the least superstitious
bride will find herself conforming
to ancient customs associated
with the ceremony. The wedding
ring has signified eternity for
twenty centuries. The reason for
slipping the ring on the third fin-
ger left hand goes back to the
times when people believed there

was a vein running from this fin-
ger to the heart.
Another custom is having the
bride stand on the left of her
husband. This dates back to the
days of chivalry when the man
had to be ready to draw his sword
in case of danger.
Shedding a few tears of happi-
ness may not improve the bride's
appearance, but it is supposed to

bring good luck. The legenaary
witches in league with the devil
never shed more than three tears
at a time. A sobbing bride would
at least show her husband she has
no connection with evil spirits.
Even after the ceremony su-
perstition holds sway. Leaving
and entering the church by the
same door is supposed to bring
extra good luck.
