Change of Orchestras Is
Announced by Dance
Committee; Event to
Have Nautical Motif
As a result of the popularity of
Gus Meyers' orchestra at the re
cent homecoming1 dance, sophomore
informal directors yesterday can
celled a contract with George
Cropp’s Winthrop hotel orchestra
and hired the campus band for the
dance Saturday, November 14, in
McArthur court, which will be a
highlight of the season.
Along with the change of or
chestra for the annual campus af
fair, chairmen announced decora
tion plans built around a "Yacht
Club" motif. A model of a modern
yacht will rise from the center of j
the floor, thrusting a spirelike mast
into the colorful streamers which
will serve as a ceiling.
Decorations will be carried out
in nautical colors, and students can
expect "ship-shape” details
throughout. Gus Meyers’ orchestra
will ride the ship in the center of
McArthur court, and panels of life
on the "bounding main” will be
placed around the sides, decoration
Tickets for the informal will go
on sale next week. Sophomore rep
resentatives in each campus living
organization will act as agents.
Fort Builds Model Ship
Sam Fort, decoration designer
for some of the most successful
dances on the campus, has created
a model ship which enhances al
most every detail of a full-sized
ship. Dancers and songsters have
been scheduled for entertainment

W’ for Mussolini—Lessons for Young Fascists
The enormous capital “M” through which these young Italian Fascists arc marching might, from the
guns on the children’s shoulders, represent Militarism, but in fact stands for Mussolini. The symbol of
loyalty to the Italian dictator was erected at a youth camp near Borne. Through the center of the “M”
runs the Fascist emblem.

We all agree on this . . . cigarette
paper is important. For Chesterfield
we use the best paper that we can
buy. It is called Champagne Ciga
rette Paper. It is made from the soft,
silky fibre of the flax plant. It is
washed over and over in clear, spark
ling water. |
A lot of the pleasure you get in
smoking Chesterfields is due to our
using the right kind of cigarette pa
per. Chesterfield paper is pure, and
it burns without taste or odor.
R.eincttlbcr this . . . two things make the
smoking quality of a cigarette—the tobaccos and the
paper. The Champagne cigarette paper on Chester
fields is tested orer and orer for purity, for the right
hurtling quality. Another reason why Chesterfield wins.
