Campus Dress I N various forms of dress or undress, the students of Centenary go blithely through their days, su- premely unconcerned or satisfactorily conceited about their appearance. During the cold winter months, little attention is paid to the color harmony of any outfit, since most people quite wisely con- sider the problem of keeping warm of major importance. Eccentricities in dress are evidenced mainly on rainy days, where the Boots and Breeches Brigade is out in full force, along with their com- panions-in-arms — the rain hat, the cellophane cap and gown, and the silk umbrella. Spring brings with it loud sweaters and ties, polo shirts with no ties and numerous other things too un- pleasant to mention. At this time of the year Mary Ella brings forth her green and silver sandals- — ideal for classroom wear. Ben Sheppard turns back his collar and lets his hair grow a la Lord Byron. Social functions find the boys casting aside the decorous black and white of the wmter for gaudy plaid shirts and two-tone effects. Some still wear suits (with vests!) to class which doesn ' t seem to embarrass their less formal brethren a bit. White shoes walk on the scene and depart very much the worse for wear after a round trip to South Hall. The gals dig up last summer ' s gullottes and ank- lets for this year ' s season. As days get hotter, the spasm of dress-up passes and people go back to being as comfortable as possible again, which means to seek a cool spot and lie there and complain. Which seems to be an excellent idea, so we ' ll quit this copy and let you finish it yourself, if you ' ve gotten this far in it. McFadden and Clark fitted out in a positive and negative manner, as a photographer would put it The accepted Chapel attire tor cold v inter days, as demonstrated by Doyle and Bourdier The cooler and more comiortable polo shirt outiits oi Wini and Sam are " the thing " tor Spring .... Tell us the joke too, Jimmy! Smart sport outfits appear all over the campus, as on Marguerite Lockhart. Page 117

The whoopie belle of New Year ' s Eve is the droopy girl of Examination Eve; the top male of the Christmas Ball is the flop man of the Fall Quiz. No matter how " comprehensive " the modern college becomes, students remain uncomprehending (and if you think you can change us go ahead and try.) Whatever is said, exams remain what Sherman termed war.

Kollege Kapers J_ _OLLEGE Kapers Kontinues Komic — to be specific, it grows in comicness, if there is such a word (or even if there isn ' t) with the addition of such shining Thespian Ughts as Hall McCord and Parry Stewart. Hall waxes eloquent both rhetorically and operatically, and Parry uses his deep bass voice to such good purpose that the general effect upon his audience, considering his lack of inches, is one of, " Tain ' t so. " The newly discovered elasticity of John Vantrease ' s arms, together with his hitherto unexploited blankness of countenance, makes him one of the outstanding comedians of the show. He fills to over- flowing the shoes of Red Kirkland of former fame. Sammy Peters and his inevitable and talented clarinet produce an atmosphere which is slightly disturbing, at the most conservative estimate. The appreciation with which Kollege Kapers was received is due in large measure to the orchestra with its timely (and a pun, however weak, is intended) pieces, ably directed by Dana Dawson, who is com- monly, and at the addresser ' s own risk, know as Mr. Beautiful. Betty Lane Grigsby and Allen Prickett accomplish the impossible by being received with greater enthusiasm this year than last: by each other and by the audience, both on and off the stage. Ruth Richards and Grace Virginia Rathburn, both new to Kollege Kopers, and the Three Notes, Doris, Phillis, and Irene, sing with the orchestra, adding to the quality of musical numbers. Helen Rosen- blath does a solo tap dance. " Gipsy " Shirley Simmons and the veTy-dTamatically-sold roses . . . Pretty pianists }o Beth Nel- son and " Wini " Boles ready to tickle the ivories . . .
