you organise activities, plan with

for your life in future communi
ties of our country that we gave
the matter much thought.
And the facilities you have at
your disposal, daughter! They were
beyond our wildest hopes as adole
scents. We hope you realize your
opportunities and make use of
them. .
Really, daughter, have you stop
ped to analyze just what you can
get from your present experiences?
You are not only schooled in the
course you have chosen but are
also growing intellectually, moral
ly and socially.
You are on your own. It is up
co you just how much you get
from your college life. Away from
home, you are in contact with
people, the majority of whom you
never knew before. It is your res

A man's opinion of the coed's
wardrobe is conpidered so import
ant that various shops this year
invited college men to preview
campus attires throughout the
Ultra-collegiate outfits were
viewed with approval but the men
candidly claimed "some girls just
can't wear sports clothes."
One BMOC praised sweaters in
natural shades and okayed the
'White shirt which is becoming tops.
However, high wedgies are taboo
on campus because they're termed
too "clumsy."
Unanimous approval was given
to white and all-black evening
dresses but the conservative men
shied away from red velvet saying
it was "nice 'but a bit flashy."
Plaids and tweeds took first
place in masculine admiration.
College- women agreed on that
point but they all seemed to have
a place in their hearts for the red

Dr. Kingdon advised every fath

thing greater than himself to live
Stressing the clash of ideas

on in our minds."

Grooming Tips
For Chic Women
A well-dressed woman is judged
not alone by what she wears but
by how she wears it. Fashion mag
azines notwithstanding, last year's
clothes can look just as smart as
the new models with a bit of at
tention to details and a small
amount of proper care.
First essential in good grooming
is pressing. Woolens, silks, taffeta.
and linen should be ironed on the
wrong side with a damp (not wet
cloth. Velvet should be turned in
side out and steamed. Stubborr
pleats may be pressed on-the right
side, first with a damp cloth ane
then with a dry one, but never•
without some protection betweer
the iron and material.
Airing and brushing immediate
ly after ' wear will lessen the
amount of pressing no end.
Sweaters should he aired and
folded carefully and placed in a
drawer with plenty of space to
prevent crushing. They may be
laundered as frequently as neces
sary if blocked with an iron.
Leather and alligator shoes wil
keep their luster longer if polishec
often. Scrapes and scratches ma: ,
be hidden with a dab of iodine or
brown shoes or ink on black. Shot
trees are a must and should be
placed immediately after wearing
Dust is better averted than re
moved from hats and a hatbox is
the best precaution. Tissue paper
inside the crown and around the
brim will preserve the shape of r.
hat beautifully.
