Coronation Is
Theme of Dinner
By Alpjha Xi Delta
Portraits sketched on place
cards of well-known and glorified
persons of the United States from
little Shirley Temple to the WPA
workman, formed an interesting
part of the coronation dinner given
last evening by members of Alpha
Xi Delta. Mrs. Agnus Beckett, Al
pha Xi Delta housemother, planned
the dinner at which the faculty
were special guests.
The table was set with red, white
and blue decorations. A golden
crown surrounded with spring
flowers formed the centerpiece.
The unique place cards made by
Sheilah Beckett caused consider
able comment.
Between courses of the meal
Miss Jessie Long sang "Land of
Hope and Glory." As a toast the
guests, rose and sang, “God Save
the King," followed by one verse
of “America.”

Vi itli Proper Care
We aren’t all, unfortunately,
blessed with perfect features, with
large, datk-lashed eyes and Cupid’s

’{figures convex and concave sur
faces arc too often in distressing
1 reverse to what the Creator in
tended them to be.
Tint one thing every coed should
• have is a head of shiny, well-cared
! | for hail , done in an attractive
1 coiffurk. If the curl in it isn’t
' natural and Cod-given, kind pro
■ vidence in the form of a perman
' ent-wav'ng machine can remedy |
that little difficulty quickly and
I comparatively inexpensively.
I Care Important
First rule for hair loveliness, is,
of course, cleanliness. No coiffure
can be attractive that is not based
on sweet-smelling, shiny-clean
hair, immaculately combed and
brushed. Next most important is
the choice of a becoming style,
i whether it is to be brushed into a
. sleek cap fit ling the head, or
combed cut into fluffy curls.
Dry, wispy hair that always
looks as if it had been out in a
strong wind storm, and stubbornly
refuses to curl enchantingly must
be dealt with with a firm hand.
Hot oil shampoos lavished upon
such hair, and frequent brushing
to give shine are excellent. If you
haven't funds for an oil shampoo at
a beauty shop, try one at home
with hot olive oil, rubbing it well
into the sealp, and clear out to
the dry ends.
Coiffures Varied
For hair that becomes dry with
curling, a coiffure brushed simply
baok from the facp, .and curled only
on the ends is most practicable.
Oily, stringy hair that stays
fluffy only a day or so after it is ,
washed presents another problem. |
Frequent washing, at least once a
week, or even oftener, is the best
solution of the problem. The use
of an astrigent shampoo or tonic is
beneficial. Oily hair, with its an
noying tendency to separate into
stadards and hang dismally, is bet
ter with a permanent wave often
the (flightly drying effect of a per
manent is very good for it.
Hair styles this spring tend to- 1
wards simplicity and naturalness. )
Set-looking waves are of course ,
out, and even the tightly-rolled ^
curls of last winter are giving way
to a smooth, sculptured effect. The
hair, brushed away from the fore
head and breaking into curls ’
around the ears and the back of I
the head is a good style note.
Style Must Suit Type
A round, ingenue face is most '
charming surrounded by a soft coif- t
fure, running towards curls. For 1
the girl with the long face, and ir- s
regular features, a more sculp
tured hairdress is better, with ac- '
j cent on the beauty of the hair it- '
self rather than on the way it is
done. 11
The moral effect of trying some- ■ s
thing now with your hair is not to i
be underestimated. Perhaps if you l
try a new curl or a new part you
’ll find your face isn't nearly as )
uninteresting as you’d thought. In v
fact, it might be a very fascinating j
face an entirely new-looking you. ,

Admittedly, he was the best dancer on the campus. Everybody knew
dm. Hq crashed into college society down at the public rat race the
ery first week he hit town. He sauntered in casually, stepping across
he floor in time with the hotcha rhythm of the band that dished out
orn to the local boys and their gals.
He took a look around the room, picked out the lucky girl who was
■oing to get to dance with him, and made his debut right then and
here, with a "Come in baby, let s
wine: it.”
From that (lav forth his success
/as assured. Everybody knew

is face right off. but if they ever
aw him dance they never forgot,
'here was something about the

Tie used to love the rally dances
he campus held in the fall. They
lilted him a little better than the
lore sedate affairs like the Senior
"Give me a rat race every time,”
e used to tell the boys. And he

p a tune that sent his w'eaker
rothers panting to their seats. He
ad a regular technique that used
o wow the girls. First, he made a
oint of going chiefly to the no
ate dances tlie campus sponsored,
artlv because iie had such a wide
uriety of partners to choose from
aero when lit1 stagged it, but rnost
v because he found the girls he
sked for dates were becoming in
leasinglv busy as his fame grew.
"Sorry," they would say when
s' called up to ask them to go to a

lie dance for weeks." It baffled

ny girl wouldn't be glad to break
date with some ordinary stooge
a go out with him. lie couldn't
nderstand why girls were so
fraid of hurting other peoples'
eelings. He couldn’t understand
ither why girls let themselves get
ated up so far ahead. They must
liss lots of wonderful opportuni
sms that way.
So because girls were so silly
bout getting themselves all tied
up ahead, he took to going to the
public dances and to the no-date
affairs. There he could have as
many partners as he needed, and
if one didn’t suit him he could al
ways get another. He found that
the girls liked it that way, too.
They seemed to enjoy dancing with
other men, he guessed, because they
wanted to get to know more people.
He gloried in his dancing. He
knew he was plenty good. He’d
clutch his partner tightly around
the waist, hunch forward and ex
tend one hand grasping hers out
into the atmosphere, and away
they’d go with a dip here, a series
of loop the loops, and end up with
an intricate back bend. The on
lookers always felt disappointed
when he was done. Somehow you
expected the dance to end with
something dramatic, like a double

He started out a week ahead of

they hadn’t been foresighted
enough to know he'd call them up.
At last in desperation he gave tip
and let bis roommate get a blind
date for him. He couldn’t help but
feel sorry for all those poor girls
who were losing out tonight.
The date was a lovely sylph-like
little thing. He was amazed at his
good luck and he had delighted

visions of himself and this charm
ing nymph floating about the floor,
doing his entire repertoire of tricky
steps, her feet following his like
twin magnates. Again he felt sor
ry for the girls who had been dated
up. How envious they’d be.
The music began. Ah, she would
be like putty in his hands, she
would move at his command.
He clutched her tightly around
the.waist, and started out, and then
he realized that something was
wrong. A moment later h'e was
| stumbling along blindly after her,
his feet doing strange things as
they followed her. He hung on
tightly and did the best he could.
Once he tried to right things, and
he grabbed her more firmly around
the waist, and sought vainly to
steer her along the intricate lines
he usually followed, but to no avail.
At last, a shrinking, hulking mess
of crushed humanity, he gave up
all hope and settled down to con
centrating on keeping his feet just
one jump ahead of his partner’s as
she plowed ruthlessly around the
floor. He knew right then and
there that he was licked. Licked

Johnston’s orchestra from OSC

“The Plaid Ball’’ is the Delta
