Party Dresses
Feature Detail
Fabrics, Necklines
Create New Interest
By MARJORY REUBENE
Party and "special" date dresses
for the holiday season willhave
interesting neckline and fabric de-
tail in keeping with the current
style.
Top of the fashion news in
fabrics is velvet, which lends it-
self to the trend of graceful lines
and the luxurious look. Sheath
dresses with cover-up jackets for
daytime wear are especially popu-
lar in rich velvet
SHORTER lengths promote a
slightly flared or voluminous
gathered skirt and dipping or
strapless neckline. One designer
features a low-cut, square-necked
gown of red velveteen with a
gathered skirt. The graceful folds
of the skirt are accentuated by its
14-inch hemline.
Deep purple velvet has been
made into a sheath dress by
another stylist. Its simply cut
strapless top is balanced by a
flared skirt and the outfit is
topped with a buttoned-to-the-
collar jacket. When worn with
the Jacket, the dress is perfect
for afternoon teas.
Moire is another favorite fabric
choice. A noted fashion designer
favors the sweeping effect of his
moire creation. The full skirt of
unpressed pleats is combined with
a wide-cuffed, victorian necklinec
and fitted top.1
* * *
CREPE is still used for "dressy"
dresses. Typical of the new styles
is one with a tiny roll collar, short
V-cut in one line from the collar,
unpressed pleats in the front and
a plain back.I
Separates in velvet have be-
come popular for their versa-
tility. Black velvet gather skirt
and deep V-cut, sleeveless topI
when worn together become a
striking combination for eve-1
ning. The outfit may be dressed
up with rhinestones or pearl
jewelry.
For a more informal occasion
the skirt may be combined with
a plain blouse or may be dressed
up with a brocaded top for events
that call for amore elaborate cos-
tume.
Overskirts are newest news fdr
versatile dress. One designer's
creation consists of black velvet
sheath dress, which ma; be worn
withor without a velvet-edged
ipet skirt.
The same stylist has designed a
black jersey dress with a boat
neckline. A bright red taffeta
skirt ties, apron fashion, over it.
Wittenberg Fraternity
Offers Pledges Course
On Newspaper Reading
A course on "How to Read a
Newspaper" is now being required
of all pledges of one fraternity on
the campus of Wittenberg College.
The course is being offered for
the purpose of giving pledges a,
better background in becoming
intelligent newspaper readers.
Members of the college public
relations staff and upperclassmen
in the fraternity who are experi-
enced in journalism are teaching
the course. The text material con-
sists of local, state and national
newspapers.
These, various newspapers are
studied and analyzed. As a check
on the students, weekly tests are
given to find how well they have
learned to read.

The president of the fraternity
said this course is being requiredf
of the pledges "because the frater-
nity realizes that being an alert,
intelligent and conscientious read-
er of the newspapers is an im-
portant part of the development
of the successful man."

Social Record
Prominent Families
Snubbed by Register
The New York Social Register
for 1951 has snubbed a record
number of socialites who have se-
lected "non-blue-blood" mates.
Members of such families as
Roosevelt, Vanderbilt, Van Rens-
selaer and Belmont are either
missing from the little black book
or have simple marriage listings,
indicating they will not be in-
cluded in the next edition.
Archibald Roosevelt, grandson
of the late President Theodore
Roosevelt, was dropped from the
blue-blood bible for marrying
Selma Showker, who was socially
unknown before the marriage.
Mrs. Killiaen Van Renssalaer,
widow of the head of New York's
most aristocratic Knickerbocker
family, did not retain her listing
because of her marriage to Harry
Granary, an unknown southerner.
Leaving only nine of the once-
numerous Vanderbilt family in the
social register, Lucille Parsons
Vanderbilt was blackballed be-
cause of her second husband, Ron-
ald Balcom, whose cafe society
circle was unacceptable.
Morgan Belmon,t member of
Newport's one-time ruling family,
was dropped from the register for
marrying the former Mrs. James
H. Hildreth.
Winthrop Rockefeller and his
estranged bride, miner's daughter
Bobo Paulequite, maintained a
marriagenlisting but no address
was given.
Mrs. Romaine Dahlgren Pierce
Simpson succeeded in obtaining a
listing for herself and new hus-
band, a cousin of the King of
England.

REBIRTH OF THE BLUES:
Hot Record Society

Promotes Jazz Interest

Whether it's swing, jazz, blues,
bebop or Dixieland-the Hot Rec-
ord Society provides music to suit
the tastes of rhythm-minded stu-
dents.
Organized to promote interest
in jazz and jazz musicians, the
society meets each week to hold
record programs, combo concerts
and discussions on the various
phases of the jazz world.
* * *
OVER 2Q0 foot-tapping, hand-
clapping jive enthusiasts set the
League Ballroom reverberating at
an informal jazz session staged by
the society a few weeks ago. Three
student ensembles provided music
for the concert.
Well-known Jazzartists are
also scheduled by the Hot Rec-
ord Society to present campus
concerts each spring. Stan Ken-
ton and Art Hodges and his
Dixieland band appeared re-
cently through the efforts of
the society.
The musical group got its start

in the fall of 1946 when an ad-
vertisement to sell some jazz rec-
ords appeared in The Daily. Sev-
eral students responded to the ad,
found they all had a common in-
terest in jazz and decided to band
together to compare record col-
lections.
The Hot Record Society was
formed and approved by the Uni-
versity.
* * *
"WE HEARTILY welcome any-
one who would like to join our
club or merely drop in at our
weekly jazz sessions," said Wayne
Garrett, president of the society.

Meetings are held at 8 p.m.
every Sunday in the League.
Record programs are given each
week by club members who spe-
cialize in some phase of jazz.
Going along with Fats Waller's
ideas on jazz, "If you gotta ask
what it is, you'll never know," the
members maintain that it is im-
possible to describe jazz. They say
it is music that must be heard to
be undestood.
"We feel that too often students
are either indifferent or form
wrong ideas about jazz music be-
fore the techniques are explained
to them," said Garrett.
