Coeds Paddle Canoe on Diag,
Launch Soph Cab Publicity Drive
By JANICE JAMES
Even with winter and its icy
blasts, the Sophomore women on
campus evidently still find amuse-
ment in the age old custom of a
leisurely canoe ride-down the well
Students hurrying to class this
S mrning were readily awakened
from their weekend daze when a
swiftly paddled canoe was discov-
ered making itsway across cam-
pus energetically propelled by
three members of the Soph Cab
EMBLAZONED with 'the slo-
gan "We can go Soph Cab-Can
oe?" this land going water vehi-
cle invited one and all to the class
of '52's "As You Shake It!"
Many a lecture will be enliv-
ened this week when coopera-
tive professors include invita-
tions to the Cabaret in thier list
of lecture slides.
Diners at fraternity houses
were considerably astonished when
waiters delivered mysterious boxes
to two members of each house.
The recipients of these presents
were even more amazed on opening
them to discover a kiss, candy,
from their favorite girl within
each box. These should serve to
provide the inspiration for Soph
Cab dates among the men and
their favorite cam"pus women.
"NEVER underestimate the
power of a woman" seems to be
the idea behind the stamping of
dinner napkins in all the wom-
en's residences this week. If the
men fail to cooperate perhaps the
women can help the situation
Nevertheless, t h e crusade
aimed at the men continues with
suckers being delivered to all
men's residences this week.
These will heip push the cause
with their slogan, "Don't be a
sucker, go to Soph Cab!"
There seems to be no end to the
tricks Bev Howell, stunt chairman,
has up her sleeve, what. with the
appearance of two living salt and
pepper shakers on campus all this
week. Bearing the fitting 'title of
this year's Cab, "As You Shake It,"
the shakers will advertise the an-
nual presentation of a well known
Confusion will reign and curi-
osity will be aroused all this week

Fashion World Shocked at Backwards
NEW YORK-(/P)-It takes a lot
to startle New York fashion world,
but a London woman did it today.
She wore her overcoat back-
On purpose, that it.
AND THE STYLE specialists1
couldn't make up their minds
whether this was a fad that ought
to be suppressed or the brightest
idea since the "peek-a-boo" waist.
In London they knew what
they thought. It looked good on
Barbara Goalen, the shapely
model who originated it, but for
women in general-"Too terrify-
ing to contemplate," shuddered

Over here, opinions differed.

"I GUESS it would be all right,"
said Brigance, an eminent coat de-
signer, "so long as the woman has
long arms-or a patient husband."
But Helen Fraser, director of
the Barbizon School and Model
Agency, wouldn't hear of it.
"They'd have to furnish a free
maid with each coat," she said.
"Also a free chiropractor in case
you tried to put it on yourself.
Anyway, who wants to sit on
Lisa Kirk, the sleekly groomed
singing star of "Kiss Me Kate,"
came out on the London girl's
"Why is it any sillier to wear a
coat backwards than to wear a
cardigan backwards as the girls
were doing a while back? I should
think .the garment industry would
encourage new style ideas.

light for romance, in the opinion
of a Hollywood photographer, be-
cause it has a ghost-like quality
which is unflattering to anyone
it shines on.
