Deutsches Haus
Ends Summer
The Deutsches Haus, inaugurated
by Dr. Otto G. Graf of the German
Department, will conclude its activi-
ties for the summer Wednesday eve-
During the past eight weeks the
house was in the center of extra-cur-
ricular programs which supplemented
work in the classroom. The Haus, lo-
cated in the Alphi Sigma Phi fra-
ternity, 1315 Hill Street, also served
as the meeting place of the. Summer
German Club.
Through an arrangement with the
Dean of Men and Dean of Women,
room accommodations for men and
eating facilities for men and women
were offered. Two excursions to near-
by lakes, a talk by Prof. Hanns Pick,
illustrated with records and lantern
slides, several evenings of informal
entertainment, and a final banquet
high-lighted the social ,calendar of
the Haus.i
As the attendance record proves,
interest in the venture was most
gratifying, according to Dr. Graf. A
large number of students, visiting
teachers, and others interested in
the speaking of German took whole-
hearted advantage of the opportuni-
ties the Haus offered.
The German Department plans to
continue the Deutsches Haus in the
summer of '40 and announcements
concerning plans and programs will
be published in the course of the year.

A SUMMER in which the fe-
male has hogged the fashion spot-
light leaves the clothes conscious male
somewhat in the dark as to what the
fall will bring in the way of apparel.
The injustice of the situation is ap-
parent since the man's clothing prob-
lem is infinitely more complex than
the woman's. For the coed, a pair of
soiled saddle shoes will suffice. She
can build the rest of her wardrobe
around this basic item of apparel. A
few accessories: i.e. a sweater for pins,
an uplift brassiere and a skirt non-
descript hue, and she is ready for any-
thing from Arboretum to J-Hop.
Not so the suffering male. Fashion
dictates that he change his shoes
when he shifts from the golf course
to the dance floor. It also demands
that he don matching coat and pants
for more formal occasions.
However the pendulum is beginning
to swing the other way at last. Pre-
season dope indicates penalties for
the fairer (?) sex in the form of
bustles and what not. But trend is to-
ward growing casualness for the male.
It is scarcely surprising, then, to
note the monopoly which the easy
fitting, physique flattering three-
button drape suits will hold over the
style market this fall. For the cam-
pus collegian, one or better two, of
these suits are a must. A drape in
one of the rougher tweeds will make
the most emaciated male look like a
football hero when he strolls across
For the lad who can afford it, one
of the new two-piece suits which
threaten to set the pace on campus
this autumn would be the ideal sup-
plement to a wardrobe boasting some
of the more conventional models. Cut
from the roughest tweeds, these new
ensembles might best be described as

sport coats with matching trousers.
And the possibilties for combinations
with odd slacks, other suits and jack-
ets appear endless.
In keeping with the air of casual!
smartness, tweed, of course, will be
THE material. Covert, a sensational
hit last season, will be fading come
fall, and gabardine, a bit too smoothy
for campus wear, will give way to
Colors and patterns will not (vary
radically from their predecessors this
autumn. A bit more sutlety of tone
and weave will be the only alteration.
-In other words, GREENS will still pe

and vice-versa.

big year, but in more subdued designs,
Diagonals are pushing into promin-
ence and day hold the spotlight for a
while until spring. And, (reminis-
cent of the old Joe College days)
checks and plaids are staging a come-
back campaign.
As for accessories, the foulard tie
striped shirt, rough woven sports
cravats, and brown brogues (witlh
double leather soles) appear the besi
bets. Definitely relegated to the pasi
are saddle shoes (for men), regimen-
tal striped ties and French cuffs with
white collars and tinted shirt.
One last word to the occasional
male who dresses (unconsciously of
course) to please the ladies. A poll
of campus beauties last spring in-
dicated that one garment, at least
has undebatable sex appeal. That
garment is the camels hair sport coat
If you have only 15 dollars for your
wardrobe this fall, this old faithfu
looks like your safest bet. You can
wear it to anything but J-Hop-the
coeds have us there.

Why Is a Needle?

You wouldn't try to sew with a tenpenny nail.

It would

be a most ineffective implement. But some people try
to do other jobs with equally incompetent tools. Some
people try to sell articles, offer services, find lost objects
with tools that are as ineffective as a tenpenny nail

These days when the pollen count is soaring up around 180 you're
probably going quietly mad with hay fever, but since we're not a specialist
on the whys and wherefores of allergy all we can do is raise a couple of
blood shot eyees and in a slightly (?) nasal accent interspersed with violent
sneezes offer you our whole-hearted condolences.
However, the very fact that you do feel like something the cat dragged
in should be all the more reason for you to take especial care with your
grooming, as the psychological effect of knowing that you look right should
serve to bolster up your spirits.
Lipstick has often been called woman's "symbol of courage," and if
you try a new shade right now you may find that life isn't so bad after
all. A new and perhaps radical change in hair style should also prove to
be a spirit regenerator, particularly if it's becoming and yet cool and easy to
to take off. Also, don't forget to wear bright-colored hairbows on top of your

days, and furthermore, it doesn't make you feel as though you have barber's
For something in the manner of a dress that will pick you up faster
than six beers, we suggest you try to get one of those little white pique

an inexpensive one at the summer sales, and even if you do have to spend
more than you bargained to, you'll feel that it's worth it in the long run,
