Faculty Member Spends
Attending Florida Aquatic Forum
look their prettiest and
look of individuality.
One University faculty member,
who expected to outwit the weath--
erman by spending her Christmas
vacation attending a national
aquatic forum in Florida, found
to her dismay water not only in
the swimming pool but also pour-
ing down from the heavens.
Miss Betty M. Spears, assistant -
supervisor in physical education,
attended the tenth annual Wom-
en's National Aquatic Forum from
Dec. 20 to Jan. 1 in Hollywood,
ALTHOUGH she is now acting
as program chairman, Miss Spears;
has been elected chairman of the
Forum for the years 1952-1954.
Approximately 155 women
from all over the United States
and Canada took part in the ac-
tivities which included group
and panel discussions, poolside
talks, demonstrations and woik-
LECTURES by experts in fields
such as swimming, diving, syn-
chronized swimming, camp-
waterfront work and canoeing
were also given. Miss Spears cited
as noteworthy, a lecture by a man
from Egypt who explained the
strict water program in his home
One of the most interesting
parts of the Forum, Miss Spears
said, was the unusual program
on conditioning and exercises
Another outstanding demon-
stration and discussion was given
on the modern dance foundation
of synchronized swimming:
"Swimmers are orphans borrow-
ing from modern dance," she
said. A great deal of synchronized
swimming is done by the Michi-
fish, she added.
Miss Spears explained that
"the Forum is a very interesting
project to participate in, but it

NEWEST NEWS in resort styles
is the hemline which is definitely
the shortest it's been for three
years. Fashionable length for
summer dresses will be thirten or
fourteen inches from the floor,
or just calf-length.
Cottons for 1950 have an air
of femininity and are designed
to be worn for any occasion.
Most startling is the return of
sleeveless, basc kless dresses
which were popular in 1923.
Featuring a high, peter-pan col-
lar and full, full skirt this
sleeveless fashion is much more
elegant than the former vogue.
Fbr the opposite extreme, a
prominent designerthas created a
new narrowed look for resort or
town wear.- Shown in washable
Irish linen, the dress features a
mandarin plunge neckline, very
narrow skirt and button accents.
WASHABLE plaid gingham is
used in a dress for more casual
wear. One style shows an apron
effect of scallops, accenting a
skirt of graceful fullness. Its
buttoned bodice with a wide,
spread collar is a nice balance for
the full skirt.
Many summer styles combine
such interesting fashion notes
as out-size pockets, button de-
tail from collar to hemline, and
a popcorn-shirred elasticized
One New York designer covers
a narrow, camisole-topped sun-
dress with a belted Parisian jacket.
The jacket features raglan sleeves
which will also be popular in

ANOTHER sun-style features a
cap-sleeved blouse that buttons to
a tiny round collar and ties at the
waist. The blouse is worn over a
draped-bodice sundress with a full
skirt of unpressed pleats.
Most styles are shown in wash-
able chambray, broadcloth and
linen. Although pastel shades,
mostly pink, are most important
they are interspersed with colors
such as true orange, turquoise and
White and off-white are being
shown as well as beige with a

New Year's Eve was the last
fling before finals for many stu-
dents as the campus population
prepares to hole up and ignore
everything but dusty textbooks
and illegible lecture notes.
A few houses, however, have
planned informal parties as this
semester's social season steadily
nears an end.
AT TAU DELTA PHI's prison
party "Jail Break," barred win-
dows and a heavy iron gate will
help protect the house tomorrow
from just such an occurrence as
that suggested in the name. In
one room guests may view a
rogues gallery, where the most
dangerous criminals in the land
will be pictured. Traditional pri-
son food consisting of bread and
water will be served. A skit cen-
tering on the penitentiary theme
will help amuse the inmates.
ANDERSON HOUSE has slated
an informal record, dance and
-television party tomorrow as the
last of its social events until
A BRAND NEW phonograph
will be initiated by the Theta Xi's
and their dates at a record dance
ENTERTAINMENT by "mem-
bers at large" and refreshments
will be featured tomorrow at Phi
Tau's record dance.
JORDAN HALL residents will
entertain their dates at an "in-
formal night" today. Dancers will
wear jeans or sweaters and skirts.
Refreshments will include marsh-
mallows roasted over log fires,
coffee and doughnuts.
INFORMALITY will also per-
meate Alpha Delta Phi's record
