Women Attend
'Vital' Forum
EDITOR'S NOTE: The following "mas-

the Daily sports staff who prefers to re-
main anonymous. The outburst came as
a result of an over the shoulder glance
at the college issue of a well known
women's magazine.

group of young women, (something
that proved nearly impossible until
someone suggested bringing a
group of young men along) to par-

subjugation of the returning male

After a lengthy four-hour discus-

The need for another session was
eliminated when the Forum mem-

cause of which, as they soon discov-

Every girl knows how imnortant a couple of COLLINS
wool classic dresses are for school, for afternoon dates
and "Rushing."
She knows how essential a COLLINS colorful basic
skirt is to her wardrobe-whether she prefers plains or
plaids she loves to change it by adding a beautiful COL-
LINS sweater one day, or a bunny soft Angora the next.
She knows an impeccably tailored suit is a "must"
in her wardrobe. A suit than can be dressed up with a
sequin studded scarf and kidskin gloves or "down" with
a tailored blouse and pigskin gloves. "With those early
football games in mind."
And of course for her "big moments" she has a basic
date dress that sparkles aglow with her Eisenberg jewelry.
These and her Coats, Jackets, and all the accessories
necessary to make a College girl happy can be found at
COLLINS, headquarters for the correct college clothes.
A counselor to advise you.
