WOMEN’S NEWS AND FEATURES MARY LOUIEE EDINGER, Editor j £ g 3 CAMPUS COSTUMES By MARY GRAHAM ( Those who saw Marlene Dietricl in “The Scarlet Empress’’ will re call how she looked in the Russiai tunics, pajamas and cossack stylf hats she wore; so stunning anc breath-taking. Fashion designer: must have the same recollection ol how clever Miss Dietrich lookec for they have decreed Russian cos tumes are for the well-dressed girl this season. Cossack hats and suits are tak ing the country by storm, which reminds me speaking of storm, ons of the elver styles is a new white galosh with white fur trailing around the top. It makes one wish for the snowy Russian steppes so one would have an excuse to wear it. Then there are the hats. Cylindrically shaped and high in the crown, some of the hats follow the Cossack hat rigorously in style. Others are more modified in their style but fur and fur cloth mate rials are used for both. y For street wear Russian suits are very much in vogue, either one piece dresses long skirted, or sep arate skirt and coat. The coats are belted closely around supple waist-lines, descending and flaring as they go to achieve quite wide widths around the knee. Skirts are patterned straight and slim, with graduated tucks and a bias cut to give them a good fit. Fur and as trakan seem to be the most popu lar trims for these suits although some fussy models have the gold braid effect across the front. Tunic blouses worn w’ith these suits also use a cut which suggests the general line of the Russian blouse—high necks, voluminous sleeves caught into a tight wrist band and braided cords forming the belt. Peasant blouses finished in bright colored smocking are still very much in vogue, fitting in ex cellently with these new styles which will soon grace many a fem inine wardrobe. ^ The trend toward Russian styl ing does not confine itself to day wear alone though. Lounging pa jamas of luxurious brocaded crepe Dean Sehwering Interested In Merits of Women’s Page i Dean Schwering has much to i say in behalf of the University j women as she expresses her op ! inions in the following statements: "I am happy to know that the woman's page is to be continued. It provides an opportunity for the women of the campus to express their opinions regarding women's participation in the affairs of stu dent government and their influ ence as world citizens. The recent movement of active discrimina tion against women by certain for eign governments has made us aware of a growing attitude to put women out of industry and rec ognized positions of leadership. On the other hand, in our country at the present time, women are play ing a very prominent part in gov ernmental affairs. They have in terested themselves in legislation and broad social movements per taining not only to the welfare of women but men and children as well. The day of the suffragette is past and women of ability and leadership assume their positions I with dignity and wisdom. “Through the many activities of I the Associated Women students, it is possible for women students of the University of Oregon to use this opportunity to learn the needs of their fellow students and to set up a program vital enough to carry over when these same students function as adult citizens. The As sociated Women students must be conscious not only of the problems of women in industry, the profes ■ sions, the unemployed, and recog nize the tremendous force of unitec efforts in bettering the bewilder j ing problems of society today. "The Associated Women stu dents should assume the leader ship in placing the emphasis on the intellectual development of the stu dent. In every way promote a high regard for scholarship. Their re cent policy of disqualifying stu dents with less than a “C” average from participation in activities .is praiseworthy. “Through their organization there is a real opportunity for the development of leadership, not in a spectacular fashion, but rather through the quiet strength of the well equipped woman. There is op portunity for the development of responsibility, not to a den or to the administration but to one's self as a matter of pride and self respect. There is opportunity for the development of tolerance for other races and for the opinions, weaknesses, and strength of others. “Through the cooperation of all, the Associated Women Students should be concerned with building a dignified, wholesome social tone among the students on the campus. The whole program of activities should not mean hurrying after ex perience without stopping to see what we are hurrying after. Too often, participation in activities makes one’s life a subway rush with an underground look. The real purpose is rather to provide fund amental basis for a well balanced life.” I and crepe satin have trousers of a. dark color and the tunic blouse of a contrasting color. To add that more imperial touch one might have her monogram embroidered on the pocket of the blouse. Curled up on the couch before the fireplace, a book in one's lap, a cigarette in one's hand, and dressed in a pair of these pajamas, to a casual observer one might even look like Natasha herself. Schedule Coming Soon For Intramural Sports The schedule for this season's intramural sports for women has not as yet been announced, but the announcement is expected in the immediate future. Teams for basketball, hockey, and other women’s competitive sports have been practicing for some time, and there is promise of a very good and active season. Theta Sigma Phi Holds First Meeting of Year Theta Sigma Phi, women's pro fessional journalism fraternity, held its first meeting of the year Tuesday noon at the College Side.

A tiny Mary Stuart cap of pearls, caught at Hobby Divisions; Phi Theta Upsilon Will join Forces Aim Is to Cut Down Class Barriers and Promote Good Feeling Phi Theta Upsilon, women's up perclass service honorary, is com I posed of women who have received recognition for service on the cam pus. Sixteen girls are chosen each year—two from the junior class and the remainder from the soph omore class. Girls are chosen on the basis of democracy, service, po tentialities, and interest in Philo melete hobby groups, according to Valborg Anderson, president of Phi Theta Upsilon. Its primary aim is to cut down class barriers between fraternities and non-fraternity women, to gain friendly contacts among girls with similar interests and to promote a wide experience among college wo men. The main project for furthering the purpose of Phi Theta Upsilon is the Philomelete hobby groups. They are organized under the leadership of Miss Anderson. The president also has a position on A. W. S. council. The president of Philomelete, Dagmar Haugen, is a member of Phi Theta Upsilon. There are five hobby groups in Philomelete—charm, music, out door, prose and poetry, and travel groups. Each group is under the leadership of a president and spon sors are chosen from Phi Theta members to act as advisers to the group president. Officers of the honorary besides Miss Anderson, are: Alma Lou Herman, vice-president; Ebba Wicks, secretary; Gladys Burns, treasurer. the back with orange blossoms completed the outfit.

Roy Northcott of Portland was best man for Mr. Nunn. Mrs. Nunn attended the Univer sity of Oregon, where she was a member of Kappa Alpha Theta. Mr. Nunn is a graduate of Cornell university. I ONLY HEARD There has been some controversy on the campus as to whether Gus Arnheim’s dance last Wednesday night was a success or not. The majority seems to thing it wasn’t. We are feeling mighty sorry for some of the boys who paid out their good money and then were disappointed. We heard that the Theta juniors were entertained at dinner before the dance by Margann Smith. And almost all of them know the dance was a success. We have found it often proves useful to have “old school pals." At least the Phi Psis think so. A number of there were seen behind the stage talking to the Downey sisters and Maxine Tappan. Two of them even rated dates Friday night in Portland. Just school pals! The heat proved too much for the Chi Psis, and they decided to cast etiquette to the winds by re moving their coats during the lat ter part of the evening. We wager they were the only comfortable men on the floor. A number of the sororities were pleasantly surprised at being sere naded after the dance. And it’s a sad state of affairs when Oregon State men serenade the Oregon co-eds before our ov/n fellow-stu dents. And incidently, such har monly as in "Sleepy Head” won’t be heard again for a long time. Cigarette holders for women seem to be the vogue lately. And we have seen them in the most peculiar places. One fair co-ed was seen using one at the Hally last Friday noon—of all places! The only damage done was one burned hole in one man’s sweater. This same girl wras continuously saying during the rally, that she wanted the team. It was suggested that we wrap it up in pink ribbons and tissue paper and present it to her. We take off our hats to Beverly Berkett, and Alpha Phi pledge. She has already pledged the music honorary, Phi Beta. Various women’s living organi zations have turned into practice houses for the golf students. Two women seem to practice eagerly and frequently. We wonder if it is just their interest in the game or could it be the new golf professor? The first year pottery classes have turned out to be very amus ing during the last few weeks. Some of the articles intended to be pottery studies have turned out to be distantly related to such an art. The students’ theme song will soon be “Your’re Nothin’ but a Noth in.’ ” Last week-end proved to be too much for most of us. We lost out on some of our classes on Friday because we were absent physically. You could certainly tell from some of the students’ expressions Mon day that they were absent again— mentally. There were a number of sorori ties who had luncheons at various places before the game Saturday. The Gamma Phis had lunch at the Campbell Court hotel; the Chi Omegas at the Sign of the Hose; the Alpha Gamma Deltas at Kel ly’s; and the Thetas at Meier and Franks. The Pi Phis from both Oregon and Washington had lunch at Meier and Frrank's also. They created no little excitement by singing their fraternity songs and joining forces in singing “Bow Down to Washington’’ and the Ore gon alma mater song.
