With Other Women—
Women Prove TO Be
Superior Scholastically
Women are superior scholasti 7
cally at the University of Texas
too. We say "too" because last
semester Penn State men had an
average of 1.37 while -the women
boasted a 1.62.
Speaking of superiority, the
Delta Zetas at the University of
Southern California defeated the
Theta Xis in a brain battle which
was broadcast.
Mortar Boards at the Univer
sity of . Utah published an eti
quette book entitled "As We Do
It" to raise money for an under
graduate loan fund. Mortar
Boards at Texas• sponsored an
open house. Tickets sold for 10
cents and entitled the - holder for
a chance , on a. $l5 prize.
Another money raising scheme,
invented by . Phrateres, senior so
ciety at the University of Cali
fornia, is an apple sale with free
dance tickets concealed in two
of the apples.
As part of their intramural
tournament, Texas coeds had a
comic swimming relay. Each
team was given one pair of over
sized shorts and one big ,sports
shirt which had to be worn by
each member of the team on her
lap of the race.

Feet Hurl !
Gel New Shoes
If you have foot trouble, you
may trace it to the shoes you are
wearing, according to -Dr. Harriet
M. Harry, physician of the Col
lege Health Service, in an inter
view yesterday.
A well-fitting shoe, she said,
should leave at least a half an inch
of space for the big toe, and the
heel should be snug. The heel
should not be more than three
fourths or one and a half inches
high for day wear, for Dr. Harry
stated that high heels cause large
legs and sway backs. However,
she added that very few persons
can wear moccasins because they
are bad for the arches.
"Soles should be thick enough
to cushion the feet," Dr. Harry
continued, "and leather heels are
more resilient than wooden •ones.
Rubber soles are bad for feet that
perspire excessively."
Commenting on posture, Dr.
Harry said that the weight should
be equally distributed between the
ball and the heel of the foot and
that half the weight should be
held by each foot.
Feet should be frequently exer
cised and washed and dried well.
Most coeds' saddle shoes are too
dirty to be sanity she concluded.

'More Machines°
Cry Home Eccers,
"Why can't Atherton Hall have
more sewing machines?" com
plained one desperate home ec
cer, trying to finish her dress be
fore 10 p. m., but waiting in a
line of seven for the Sewing ma
chine in one of Atherton's pres
sing rooms.
"At least," pouted an inexperi
enced sewer, far behind in her
dress construction, "they could
leave the sewing room open all
night instead of closing at 10
"Darn it all," exploded another
seamstress working furiously to
beat the dead line. How can I ever
press this sleeve without a sleeve
board? I've got to finish this dress
or else."
Many other home economics
students taking courses in cloth
construction are voicing the same
complaints. A certain day is set
in every clothing class when the
finished dress is due. With ap
proximately six hours a week out--
side work required for every stu
dent, present sewing facilities in
Atherton Hall are inadequate.
'Headaches and backaches would
be lessened, more dresses would
be finished on time, and many
more coeds would be happy if
only Santa Claus would surprise
Atherton coeds by leaving a new
sewing machine and sleeve board
in each pressing room. Now, all
they need to know is Santa Claus'
