Now that the majority of the classes
of the engineering college have held
their class meetings, at each of which
a distinctive bit of wearing apparel
was decided upon, a "correct dress
chart" has been prepared for those
en :'nvcrs who wish to be fastidious
and correct on all occasions; and. for
the Information of others who do not,
wish to mistake an upperclassman for
an employee of the buildings and
grounds department.
The correct clothes for engineers to
wear when strolling o'er the campus
or attending classes is as follows:
Senior engineers should wear light
brown corduroys and a thoughtful
look at all times when on the campus.
Junior engineers on the other hand
should have gray-brown corduroys.
Those members of the class who want
to be "chic" should by all means wear
an entire suit of the same material of
which their trousers are made.
Sophomores and freshmen are still
in that state of indecision which is

so typical of them. The sophs want
to wear corduroys and the freshmen
would like to further label themselves
as yearlings by wearing flannel shirts.
Having wisdom beyond their years,
however, they have decided to ask the
seniors for permission before they
take any further steps.
The denizens of the architectural
drafting rooms are still "up in the
air" about their fashions. Perhaps
it is because they are "up in the air"
that the senior architects have
decided on a distinctive hat for their
badge. If they don't find anything to
their liking in the realm of "hattery,"
they will adopt a coat as their con-
tribution to the sacred cause of tradi-
tin.' The fresahman architt lsn

Illinois Legislature to Be Offered
Amendment to Bill
Springfield, Ill., Nov. 30.-When the
legislature of Illinois convenes an
amendment will be offered to the
child labor law to prohibit the employ-
ment of children under 16 years except


except during school vacation."
At present children in Illinois be-
tween the ages of 14 and 16 are al-
lowed to work the year around under
certain limitations as to hours of la-
bor. They must have a certificate to
show that conditions have been com-
plied with.

Thanksgiving patrons of the Ma-
jestic, usually of a lenient nature, had
small cause to exercise their leniency
last night when Boyle Woolfolk, Inc.,'
presented "The Girl Worth While."
The musical comedy is built around
a vaudeville star, who, while resting
.in the Wisconsin dells, falls in love
with a- traveling man who is attempt-
ing to promote an automatic hook-
and-eye dress, that is "both a boon to
the wife and a cure for the divorce
evil." Complications ensue the mo-
ment that the star, Flora Fine, learns
that she is the owner of valuable lake
front property. She comes very near
selling it for $500, but through the in-
tervention of Arthur Conrad, the com-
mercial man, she is given a check for
$20,000, and Flora, afraid that Conrad
is wanting to marry her only for her
money, ends the affair.
Two years later, Flora, now a Broad-
way star, rich, and the owner of a
beautiful home, meets Conrad., new
agent for a steam radiator concern,
and although for a short time deluding
him into believing that she is mar-
ried, he learns the truth, to their mu-
tual satisfaction.
Flora Fine is an actress with a most
charming personality, and no little
ability to dance, but her husky voice
is a great handicap. Silent Smith
evokes waves of laughter in his
periodical trips to the water cooler,
and the audience thoroughly appreci-
ated the waking-up of "the unsoph-
isticated girl."
Picture Taking on Canadian Front in
France Is No Sinecure
London, Nov. 10.-(By Mail.)-Film-
ing the Canadian "Tommies" on the
Somme is a dangerous but interesting
occupation, according to the man who
has turned the crank or pressed the
bulb for months for the benefit of all
the eyes of Canada.
Canada's official picture maker is
Lieutenant Ivor Castled it has just
been publicly announced. Armed only
with a black box and a photographic
lense he has been under fire hundreds
of times. Pictures which have thrilled
Canadian and American movie audi-
ences and filled the Anglo-Canadian
newspapers have in most cases been
made with death lurking near.
Back in Fleet street where (Castle
was a press photographer before the
war, he is hailed by his fellow journal-
ists as a hero. Like veteran war cor-
respondents, Castle practiced for the
job of filming Canada on the Somme
by photographic work during the lit-
tle skirmishes before the great world
war. He faced fire with his lens in
the Chinese revolution, the Balkan-
Turkish war, the South African war
and the Turco-Italian trouble. When
the king and queen arrived for the
Indian Durbar, Castle was there to
film the ceremonies. But these were
mere trifles compared with the Can-
adians on the Somme, Castle has told
his Fleet street colleagues.
