SMART COATS and SUITS Appeal
ing to those who understand style
l \J/t 6*20
We are not offering the coats and
suits to women who are content with the
“ideas that are being worn this season.”
But to the smarter sort of woman
who wants more subtle expressions of
the vogue; individuality with simplicity
of youthfulness. Here are models that
will delight her eye, most of them Wool
tex designs. It sounds “shoppy” to keep
repeating that the right kind of coats and
suits are scarce and that it is wise to get
them while there is a selection, but the
woman who shops knows it is a fact. Ow
ing to our foresight in buying early and
selecting many models we have a very un
usual showing of really correct garments.
Come and see.

Arl Class Hikes on Spring Morning;
“Give Them Freedom” Says Schroff ,
(By Earl Murphy)
'T'hat the average student appreciates a |
certain amount of freedom in his class !
work would seem to be rather a truism, j
yet A. II. Schroff, professor in the art j
department, finds that instruction given ;
with a liberal hand is more valuable than j
that given by strict rule and monotonous i
‘‘You will find the students in our de
partment,” said Mr. Schroff yesterday af
ternoon. as he sat in his attractive
studio in Architectural hall, “ready to
work here late into the night. Why?
Because they have caught the spirit of
the thing. They see that we are trying
in this department of the University, at
least to get a broad and a true grasp
And to carry this idea, this larger
plan of work, into practical application,
the work of the department is so planned
that the individual Initiative is develop
ed. Freedom is given the members of
the class to work, but work is the
secret of it all, the artist says.
“They do work.” said Professor
with earnestness, coming down to the
“do” with stress. “There is no iinbU
ing of knowledge in these classes. Look
at this class" and ho nodded to the ad
joining studio where a half score of moa
and women sketched the form of a liv- ;
in? model from innumerable angels, i
"Perhaps some of those people will get j
mad or cry when they are rebuked. Well,
they come back again and they do better
work for “ They are earnest, that’s j
With the coming of these spring days ]
the class in open-air sketching has re- ;
mimed its trips on eaph Saturday morn
ing. There are about 31 members in the ;
class which meets at eight o’clock and j
makes a short trip out into the hills. j
"The main object, of course,” said
Professor Schroff, "is to give the class
actual practice in appreciating color val- ;
ues and the painting of them. At the j
same time a great leal of the artistic I
portrayal of nature is gathered and a '
keener sense of general appreciation of1
natural life is gained.”
Some very serious work in water col- 1
ors has been done by the class on these
trips according to Professor Schroff.
The most of the members of the class j
confine their work to sketching, with ;
charcoal or pencil but some attempt the
more difficult work in color.
