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

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
“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

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

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,

a very good and active season.

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
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

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
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—
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
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.
