S1 YLISH SPECT ACLES:
Glasses Become asset to Coeds' Beauty
By MAD DAVIS .
Coeds who are forced to wear
spectacles to be able to see the
puddles in the street need no long-
er have fear that the students sit-
ting on benches on the Diag will
turn thebother cheek when they
According to a recent release by
a fashion survey, glasses are more
help than harm to -the beauty of
the human face.

HOLLYWOOD has discovered
r that 20 per cent of a star's person-
ality is expressed by the voice, 20
per cent by the body, 10 per cent
by the eyebrows and the remaining
50 per cent by the eyes.
Once more the eyes have "it".
Consequently, the authorities
feel that, since the eyes are so im-
portant, the more emphasis placed
on them the better.
SPECTACLES, in today's mod-
ern designs, seem to be able to
emphasize the eyes almost better
than eye make up.
Although today glasses are
modern in their design, includ-
lng the slanted harlequins, the
square heavy frames and the
"top-heavy" frames which cover
only the top of the lenses, eye-
glasses made their first appear-
ance in the modish world at the
courts of monarchs and, the
palaces of the nobility.
The accidental fact that no sat-
isfactory way existed of attaching
glasses to the face caused them
to be held in the hand, and thus
led to the primitive form of the
lorgnette-a device which natur-
ally lends itself to stately manners
and social prestige.

HOWEVER, the popularity of
glasses did not diminish with the
introduction of bows or ear-pieces.
Rumor has it the young ladies
of Spanish nobility wore glasses
for cosmetic and stylish effect,
although they were blessed with

ACCORDING to the survey, if

tator, the cinema center is it.

and color of eye glass frames are
substituted for make up pencil and

same "ovalizing" effect.

In League Services,
Honored at Breakf ast
Senior Society held its initiation
at 7 a.m. in the League Chapel this
The seventeen new members,
dressed in pastel colors, took the
oath of the society and were given
pins by the black-robed graduating
seniors. The ceremony was fol-
lowed by breakfast at the League.
SENIOR SOCIETY is an honor-
ary organization for senior inde-
pendent women who are outstand-
ing in activities and who have at
least a 2.62 scholastic averag.
The society is the oldest wo-
men's honorary in existence on
this campus and was founded to
promote "good fellowship and
interest in activities among the
women of the University."
The organization h o 1ds bi-
monthly socialmeetings at which
the girls discuss business and
Tapping takes place at Assem-
bly Fortnite in the fall and at In-
stallation Nite in the spring.
LETTERS asking for recoi-
mendations for new members are
sent to almost ninety campus
leaders and the girls suggested, if
they meet the scholastic average,
are then considered by affirmative
discussion in the closed tapping
One subject that has often
been discussed is the double
tapping between Senior Society
and Mortar Board. Senior So-
ciety chooses girls Independent-
ly of Mortar Board's selections.
A girl tapped by Mortar Board
is not automatically tapped for
Senior Society, but usually her
record is outstanding enough
that she is honored twice.
To lighten the double responsi-
bilities of such an honor, the girls
now being chosen for Senior So-
ciety who have already- been
tapped by Mortar Board will be
given an opportunity to become
associate members of Senior So-
ciety. This is a new policy being
tried for next year.
General information about the
organization was given in an in-
formal get-acquainted meeting for
all old and new members last Sun-
