Coed Rules Changed

One of the most fully represen-

women on campus today, the
Board of Representatives, remains
vastly underestimated by a ma-
jority of students.
This is the only powerful body
wherein all women, including
those in League Houses, sororities,
co-ops and dormitories, are pro-
portionally represented.

"Here comes Peter Cottontail."
With less than a week before
Easter, the bunny business is real-1
ly booming.
One expert on \the subject of
Easter bunnies, said that city par-
ents try their best to give their,
children a touch of country life.'
He said this accounts for the $10,-
000 worth of live Easter bunnies
sold in Manhattan every season.
* * *
"RABBITS ARE the biggest
sellers, baby chicks next and then
the ducks," said Gabriel Krakau-
er, who personally accounts for
about 2,000 Manhattan Easter
rabbits via the poultry company
that he and his brother operate
on Long Island.
A department store in Man-
hattan is the only large store
which sells the live animals be-
fore Easter. Their 500 seasonal
bunnies come from the Kra-
kauer brothers.
Another Manhattan store keeps
a display of Easter. rabbits, but
the children can only look, not
buy. "We give them away after
Easter, but it's too much trouble

to sell live animals,"
John Reeves, assistant
the shop.

substituting ducks between now
and Easter," he said. He explained
that ducks are the fastest grow-
ing of the pre-Easter poultry, so
young ones have to be substituted
midway in the display season.
In one corner of the Easter
display a lively man-sized bun-
*ny cavorts with the children.
"We dress up one of the girls in
the store to resemble "Sonny
the Bunny," our big promotional
rabbit," Reeves said. He con-
tinued, "the kids can sit on her
knee and tell her what they want
for Easter just like they tell San-
ta Claus."
The youngsters usually ask only
for colored eggs, a little candy and
a rabbit or two.
At one store, the pet shop man-
ager has had to clean out cages
and move dogs to new pens to
make room for the rabbit rush.
"Adults buy them too," said man-
agm Henry Fried. "They let them
grow a while, then make hausen-
Fried whispered that last word,
with warning glances at the chil-
dren nearby, because he said thatI

SENIOR WOMEN will view the
first performance of the play
Thursday as a climax to their
Senior Night activities.
After an informal dinner at
the League, the coeds will go to
the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre
for the play production.
Written, produced, and directed
by junior women, JGP is in the
final stages of production this

tonight for members of the cast,
and the coeds in the cast have
been heard to state that they will
have so much spare time next
week -relatively, that is - that
they might even be able to do a
little homework.
Members of the Central Com-
mittee are holding their breath
in an agony of anticipation
during these last few days, even
while theyare finishing the last
minute functions of their com-

script, will have a chance to see

of characters, "It's The Payoff"
deals with a subject far removed
from the affairs of college life.
However, certain of the scenes in
the play are definitely reminis-
cent of the happenings in college.
The plot of JGP is tradition-
ally kept as secret as possible
from the rest of the campus,
but for some reason, probably
because most of the women in
the junior class are in some
way connected with the play,
information has leaked out to
other students.
JGP has not always been the
production that it is today. In
1904, Miss Myra Jordan, dean of
women at that time, suggested'
that the juniors give a play for
the benefit of their senior cohorts.
Since that time, the affair has
developed from a skit presented to
senior women only to a campus
event of considerable proportions.
" Only since 1923 have men been
allowed within the sacred portals
of Lydia Mendelssohn theater to
view the results of the efforts of
the coeds.
Although there is no actual
lead in the play this year, Nancy
Carter, Sarah Hoffman, Betty
Bridges and Joyce Rashti have
important parts in "It's The Pay-

Spring Parade
It's the pyramid this spring.
Not in architectural development,
but in coats.
Coat designers this year have
gone back to the ancient pyramids
of Egypt to find their basic de-

a roll collar or a small round
style, they break away , with a
long row of buttons down the
Jeweled buttons, either rhine-
stones or colored gem stones to
blend with the coat color, are
a new fad this spring. They add
sparkle and brightness to a
Raglin sleeves are popular in
the pyramid style, for they em-
phasite the illusion of space and
volume which is found in the coat.
They are not only smart-looking,
but they are roomy for comfort
and ease in movement.
* * *
ALTHOUGH the fashion em-
phasis this spring is on the pyra-
mid style, the ever-popular classic
straight coat is still a favorite
among many women.
It is being featured mainly in
plaids, the most popular of
which are beige, yellow, grey
and toupe.
Fitted coats, too, are still high
on the list of best-sellers.
This season they, like the Pyra-
mid coats, are most popular in
smooth doeskins and soft fleeces.
In the Pyramid coat, as well as
in other styles, pastels are most
important this spring. Plaids are
running a close second,.and navy,
wit hits great versatility, is high
on the list. Most *dark colors are
being used only slightly.
Apricot is a new and very popu-
lar shade. It blends well with
most of the darker shades, brown,
navy and green, and it can be
worn with other pastels.
The trend in coats, as in other
clothes, is toward comfort and
ease -combined with beauty and

Rapidly changing hemlines have

No Such Thing
"The 100% he-man and the
completely feminine woman turn
out to be mere romantic fantas-
ies," according to a recent psy-
chological poll.
Although this statement may
seem disillusioning to some peo-
ple, it states, nevertheless, a very
important truth, for Nwithout a
mixture of feminity and mascu-
linity in men and women, "there
could be no love, no sympathy, no
poetry and no art."
