Plaids are- deluging the fall fashion
marts. Genuine Scotch clan pat-
terns are the thing, but American-
ized versions in gay color schemes
are very attractive too. Skirts, suits
and tailored dresses all
* stress plaids. And the,
pleated-all-around plaid
skirt has become a classic
part of the coed's ward-
robe. This season it has
added a jacket, usually
[.cardigan style, and be-
come a suit. It's new to
match a pullover to the
plaid color and a cardigan
to the background, wear-
ing all three at the same time. Some
of the more prominent clan plaids are
Stewart (red and green), McDuff,
(brown, green and blue) and Gordon
(Navy and green). These same plaids
are also being used for one side of
reversible raincoats.
In addition to the matching skirts
and sweaters of last season, sports
manufacturers are offering suede
jackets, cardigan style, also dyed to
match. Most popular colors are moss
green, blue and wine, and the suede
is unusually soft and supple.

havoc with your curls and the sun

: Wool gabardine is a new pet fabric

for fall. It makes smooth tailored
clothes, and the dull sheen and fine
wale are most flattering to all fig-
ures. It's particularly smart in a
neat, button-down-the-front model:
which helps you dress in firemen's
time if you have an eight o'clock.
Padded shoulders and a convertible
neckline (button it up high or leave
it open) are other highlights of this

One of the smartest new arrivals in
shops here is a greyed blue tailored
dress of soft material made by a fa-
mous manufacturer of camel's hair
coats. This dress features the new
three-quarters sleeves and the latest
pet of the college girl-a zipped on,
detachable hood. The skirt is ex-
tremely full and the bodice fastens
with round, silver wagon wheel but-
tons. A most flattering "first" fall
find to start your wardrobe off with.

popular cardigan neck-

straight lines ' that you
never grow tire t of. By
all means, when you
choose a fur for college
wear, get a tough one that can take
the wear and tear of dormitory life.
Muskrat, skunk and raccoon (clipped
shorter and made new again) are
some more of the hardier skins to


Dining with Arabian shieks, long
camel trips into the Sahara Desert,
nights in palm-dotted oases are only
a few of the many adventures of her
year in Algeria related by Christine
Duesel, Summer Session student from
Worcester, Mass.
Following graduation from Wor-
cester State Teachers College and a
year of study at Middlebury College,
in Vermont, famous language school,
Miss Duesel was granted a fellowship
by the Institute of International Edu-
ca'tion. It was arranged by the
French Minister of Education for
Miss Duesel to spend her year at the
University of Algiers. This is the
only one of the 17 national French
universities which is located outside
of France itself. Part of Miss Deu-
sel's work consisted in teaching Eng-
lish at the Lycee de Jeune Filles d'
Despite an active interest in the
United States and despite their pur-
chases of automobiles, cigarette light-
ers and lipsticks, the 'Arabs remain
a people apart, Miss Duesel says. She
illustrated this by telling of a holy
man whom their party met in the
desert. He was a very intelligent
man who asked innumerable ques-
tions about this country and said that
he would liked to have visited here.
"However, I don't believe he would
have cared for it very long," Miss
Duesel continued, "for the stream of
autos would have disconcerted him
and the noise would have invaded
his prayers and soliloquies."
Although there is squalor outside,
the Arab's home is filled with beauty.
He is a lover of gardens, good things
to eat and the pleasures of life. How-
ever not centuries of contact with
Western civilization have made him
other than an Arab.
Awareness of the inevitability of
progress was one of her chief impres-
sions, Miss Duesel reports. France
went into Algeria a little over 100
years ago to colonize it. "Your sense
of fairness and justice may suffer as
you see the hand of France and Great
Britain heavy on these primitive
peoples; but you cannot help seeing
that civilization has bettered the lot
of these peoples," she says.
Algerian tribesmen may fling de-
fiance to French troops but where
the French reign has penetrated,
there is science and education.
"Perhaps you remember Sidi-Bel-
Abbes in Percival Wren's romantic
'Beau Geste'-with its gleaming ram-
parts in the desert and behind whose
walls a handful of Legionnaires did
battle with a horde of savage tribes-
men?" Miss Duesel aked. Coming on
it one day in North Algeria, she

found its outlines as stark and grim
in reality as they were in the stirring
Mounted troops of the Foreign
Legion passed under the windows of
her room every morning, dark men in
red capes riding on white horses, this
is indicative of the color of this Orien-
tal city so near to the Occident.
Only' 24 hours by boat from Mar-
seilles, a few hours by plane from
Paris and only a day and a half from
the United States on the new clipper
airliners, Africa is now brought to
our backyard as well as to Europe's.

The Guild was established here
during the spring semester and has
become the center of interest to those
law students concerned with the pro-
gressive development of their pro-

versity of Wisconsin and Judge John
Gutnecht of Chicago, president of

State Can't Meet School
Payment, Brown Says
LANSING, Aug. 9.-(IP)-Auditor
General Vernon J. Brown said today
the state would be unable to meet in
full a $10,417,781 payment due schools
Sept. 15 from' the primary interest
"We'll have to send it out in drib-
lets as it accumulates," he said.
Brown said $2,300,000 remained in
the state treasury after payments of
$1,600,000 to municipalities as their
share fo liquor license fees. Of this
sum, $1,750,000 is due counties for
gas tax collections.
"We keep getting a little poorer,"
was his comment.
The full school aid payment would
represent $7.45 for each school child. -

Chinese Political
Unity Valuable,
Linebarger Says
Resistance To Invasion Is
Necessity In Conquered
And Independent Areas
(Conminued from Page 1)
the Chinese society itself, according
to Dr. Linebarger. If some sort of
resistance by the Chinese people tes
the Japanese in the occupied areas
can be maintained, the Japanese may
be driven out, he affirmed. The lec-
turer observed that the very weak-
nesses of the people that hindered
the government of Sun Yat-Sen at
the outset in 1911-12 may be the same
that will now work to drive the Jap-
anese out, an unwillingess to accept
a modern government at that time
leading to an enormous distribution
of arms so that many in the occupied
districts know how to handle firearms
and are equipped.
Also, he told, the puppet states of
the Japanese have been badly organ-
ized, and, through the policies of
Japan, have been misgoverned.
If Japan should negotiate a peace
and leave China, the United Front
government, because of its composi-
tion, might very well'help to break up
the pattern of the balance of power,
Dr. Linebarger declared, as in'its
make-up it has the possibilities of re-
maining friendly with both democra-
cies and totalitarian states; thus, the
conflict between the Axis and the de-
mocrabies, 'o6ice Japan's power was
broken in the East, would be localized
to Europe.
Dr. Linebarger traced the develop-
ment of the present government in
China, speaking of the nationalistic
movement and the opposition it re-
ceived, and of the San Min Chu I,
the three principles of the people.

Fanny Aronson
To Give Dance
Acts For BallZ
Dance selections from the reper-
toire of Fanny Aronson of the New
Dance Group and the Bennington
School of the Dance will be featured
at the Surrealist Ball tomorrow night.
Miss Aronson has studied under
numerous outstanding dancers in-
cluding Martha Graham, Doris Hum-
phreys and Charles Weidmann, and is
a talented artist in her own right.
Two dances of widely differing
character will be presented tomorrow
night. The first, called Psychopathic
Symptom, is a study of the eccen-
tricities of psychopathic anomalies as
seen through the three short pre-
ludes of Scriabine's opus 49.
The second, Exile, is an attempt to
present the heartbreak and present
hopeless outlook of the people of war-
torn Spain. Costuming for Miss Ar-
onson will be created by James Doll
of Play Production.

period occurred last summer in the

Willie Long Bone, the Oklahoma Del-

ly to attempt the broad structural
analysis of the language, leaving de-

so, the present work has shown that,
contrary to the imperfect reports
made by early missionaries, Delaware
is closely linked to its sister langtiages"
in the great Algonkian family. The
class analysis revealed new informa-
tion concerning the Delaware system
of speech sounds and the names and
degrees of kinship. Particularly im-

The Russian Language Circle will
complete its Summer Session series
of Thursday teas at 5 p.m. today with
a gathering at the International
Center, 603 E. Madison St.
The hour has been postponed from
the usual 4:15 p.m. because of Dr.
Hu Shih's lecture which is to take
place at 4 p.m.
The object of the Circle is to give
the students of Russian practice in
the language in addition to the regu-
lar studies, and to thus facilitate their
task of acquiring the richest possible
vocabulary within the limited , time
of the Summer Session period.
Russian songs will be sung and
gaoes will be played. Tea will be
served. Students and faculty mem-
bers speaking Russian are cordially
invited to attend.
