New Bathing Suits To Require
CarefulSelection, Good Care

The average coed may have to
take a little longer to make up her
mind about a swim suit wardrobe
with. so many styles to choose
from this season.
Although the average American
woman is getting cannier by the
moment as the anemic dollar re-
quires extra devotion to pull it
through the doldrums, most manu-
facturers agree that not enough
attention is paid to the purchase
and care of bathing suits.
THE INCREASING tendency to
go vacationing with more than
one :suit in a wardrobe bag may
prove to be advantageous.
If canniness stops there, man-
ufacturers offer some additional
tips for swimmers.
One suggestion is to find out
about the material in a suit. Sales
people have this information and
are anxious to pass it along be-
cause it means a satisfied cus-
IF A COED insists on an espe-
cially light-weight suit because it
dries quickly, chances are that she

must settle for one which tends
to lose its shape. The rubber is
covered with layton, known in the
trade as "roving cotton." Actually,
say manufacturers, it does just as
its name suggests. J

Since it
weight and

has practically no
it stretches with
stays that way.

Lastex, on the other hand, snaps
back into position, covering the
rubber snugly and keeping its
"aliveness" intact.
Another tip from manufacturers
is to sit down in a suit when it is
being tried on.
If the suit rides up, it will go
farther faster during beach and
wateruactivities. The suits which
are cut longer slightly in the back
and reinforced with elastic will
eliminate tugging at a suit when
emerging from the water.
The coed who kicks off a suit in
the rush is giving it a kick in its
longevity. Throwing it carelessly
over the line in the scorching sun-
light doesn't classify as good care,
either. A suit needs a rest from the
sun as much as the coed does.

Seeks Ticket
To 'BigScoop'
Rules of the League will need a
revision when a horse named
Scooper attends the Blue Team's
presentation of Frosh Weekend,
"The Big Scoop" from 9 p.m. to
midnight Friday, April 27, in the
League Ballroom.
Scooper heard about the dance
and decided to forego running in
this year's Kentucky Derby, and
take a quick jaunt north to attend
the "Big Scoop."
He arrived in town yesterday,
and since then he has amazed the
campus with his songs which echo
across the Diag. These songs re-
veal his reasons for leaving the
land of magnolias and mint juleps
in favor of the northern territory.
Joan Benizon, publicity chair-.
man of the dance, informed him of
the theme of the dance and the
decorations which are be in g
planned for it.
These decorations will depict the
formation, page by page, of a
metropolitan newspaper.. The
floorshow will also carry out the
theme of "The Big Scoop."
' Scooper's nose for news finally
led him to the campus in hopes of
." obtaining a free ticket to the
s dance, but he has run into com-
plications, those obstacles known
y as rules.
While Scooper is ,awaiting his
y complimentary tick'et, students
may purchase their "presspasses"
all this week at the League or Un-
ion. Tickets will also be on sale
tomorrow on the Diag and at the
Engineering Arch.
The tickets are priced at $1.50
per couple.

dreds of violets, the sorority flower, will be trellised along the walls
of the room to set the mood of the dance.
It will be "Muddled Madness" at the Trigon pledge formal. Silhou-
ettes depicting Hell Week and initiation activities will provide an ap-

will be saying after their formal tomorrow night. The dinner and
dance will be held at the house in a "rabbity" spirit.

will reign at Gamma Phis "April Showers." Hugh Jackson's orchestra
will set the musical mood for the evening.

at the League in honor of its pledges.
Formals and tuxedoes will also be in vogue at Delta Sigma Delta,

Pi and Delta Zeta.
"Turn about is fair play," say the pledges of Lambda Chi Alpha,
so tomorrow night they are giving a party for the actives. The party
will be strictly for "hobos."
DELTA CHI PLEDGES are also planning a party for the active
members of the fraternity, but they are keeping plans a deep dark
secret until tomorrow night.
It will be "Dutch Treat" at Mosher Hall's party. Windmills, picket
fences and flowers will set the "Hollandish" mood, while Mel Sach's
orchestra will provide the musical background.-
"Hard times will come a' knockin' " at Triangle fraternity tomor-
row night.
THETA CHIS and their dates will stroll down "Bowery Lane" at
the fraternity party. Amid the atmosphere of a French cabaret,
"Xavier Lipsqhlitz and his ruptured Hawaiians" will give out with
some "hot" music.

will be the way to the French apache party. Costumes and decorations
will depict life on the left bank of that gay city.
Captain Hooker, a famous Civil War general, will be the honored
guest at the Phi Delta Phi record dance. Although due to extenuating
circumstances, the general cannot be there in person, he will be pres-
ent in the spirits of the evening.
