Rings, Earrings
Show Variety
in New Styles'
A'new revolution has come in
the field of women's jewelry, ac-
ording to prominent fashion, ex-
The current mode features rings
and earrings as big and flashy as
they come. Particularly striking is
the ring style which advocates a
different ring for every costume.
* * *
MADE OF inexpensive mater-
ials, resembling costly originals,
these finger rings come in a mul-
titude of colors. Very striking is
one design with a huge royal blue
stone in a setting of imitation gold.
This ring is displayed with a silk
scarf of the same color.
A more practical color, though
less flashy, is a very inexpensive
copy of a more famous acces-
sory. This style is imitation onyx
in a gold setting and is distinc-
tive due to the small "pearl" in
the center of the black stone.
Also very popular are etched de-
signs in varied colored stones. The
design is usually on clear colored
stone to refract the light.
* ~* *
. ..ANOTHER go-with-everything
ring is shiny, imitation pearl, us-
ually in a gold background. Ob-
long, round and diamond shapes
are popular in this stone, while the
square shapes are found in the
imitation onyx.
Earrings follow the same ex-
travagant fashion taking many
odd shapes. They may be found
to match the ring of the day or
may be worn in contrast to it.
Earrings are not confined to the
very inexpensive styles, but may
be found in the same designs in
rhinestone sprays.
mode is a series of sparkling
strings attached to a stone of the
same kind. Most earrings dangle
and sparkle these days.
These new styles are a boon to
tired wardrobes and empty purses.

Coeds Relive College Days
At Senior NightCelebrations

From the staidest to the snap-
piest members of the class, the
senior women really whoop it up
on their annual night to howl,
the traditional Senior Night!
The jump from green freshman
to worldly senior is a slow and
tortourous one, but when gradua-
tion time at last arrives, many a
memory of the "rah-rah" years is

tion of JGP, the opportunity is
presented for the graduating wo-
men to both show their superiority
to the class below and renew the
days of days quickly drawing to
a close.
Publicly sporting their caps
and gowns for the first time, the
seniors annually gather at the
first presentation of JGP to both
applaud and annoy the junior
women. At this time, it is the

senior's prerogative to stop the
play at any spot and demand a
repeat performance of a parti-
cular part.
Previously to this though, the
women line up according to resi-
dential areas and march to the

ior banquet is held. At this time,
the past four years of college life
are reviewed with skits presentd

of the ballroom, the seniors then
reveal their standing in the matri-
monial sweepstakes. Married wo-
men carry lighted candles, the en-
gaged seniors suck lemons, pinned
coeds sport straight pins and those
who are unattached toss a penny
for each year of their age in the
wishing well on the stage.
After the presentation of the
current year's JGP, the seniors
then return home to many and
varied types of surprises. The
many residences invent ways of
heckling the celebrators with
anything from locking them out
to hiding their shoes.
With the younger coeds then
impersonating the soon departing
ones, the evening draws to a close.
AS A RESULT, the consensus
of opinion seems to be that blue-
books may bounce and averages
may slide, but the women on this
campus seem to always have an
extra hour to put in on activities
which make the campus stare in
With the frosh frolicing at their
Week-end, the sophs cavorting at
their Cabaret, the juniors jiving
at JGP and the seniors sighing on

women are constantly on the jump

Blue Victorious
Over Weekend
Blue team has done it again!
To climax a most successful
Frosh Weekend, the judges of the
affair announced that the Blue
team was once again victorious.
* * *
LAST YEAR, with a theme en-
titled "Deuces Wild," the team
won over Maize, whose theme was
"Commotion in the Ocean."
"Watch the Birdie," an epic
of photographyrthrough the
ages, was the winning team this
year. The team's winning points
were gained through the decora-
tions and the floor show.
Floor show chairman, Joan
Brown, directed the saga which
concerned three generations of a
picture-taking family in Ann Ar-

"BIRDIE," played by Jean
Waidley, brought the still life pic-
tures to life. The three "pictures"
began with grandmother's day,
complete with old fashioned bath-
ing suits and handsome life-guard.
Next came World War I days, in
which a platoon of soldiers bid
adieu to their favorite coeds, while
said coeds lamented audibly, and
finally a plea for, if not better
weather, at least less rain.
An unknown freshman stole the
show with her characterization of
"Sad Sack."
