Fashion changes-taste remains by Karen Webb Fashion trends at OU vary distinctly from year to year. ln the past few years, there has been a definite revival of the 30's look. Flowered skirts fell to below the knees and tailored jackets were highlighted by wide collars and puffy sleeves. However, no matter how fashions changed, the mainstay of the coed's wardrobe was blue jeans. Yet last year trends moved away from the 'Lsloppy" jeans look. They were seen with a smartly tailored shirt, sweater vest, furry coat, or hooded jacket. As for accessories--knee socks of the boldest and brightest colors were a must! To spice up an outfit, coeds added a scarf, beads or a new stickpin to the collar. Footwear of all kinds--from silver Sequined shoes with three inch heels to brown back-to-earth hiking boots--was in style. As for men, they were seen in everything from the casual jeans look for class to the more dressy tailored suits for parties. Jeans became straight legged again and flannel shirts gained popularity. Bow ties were back in style to highlight single breasted suits of various styles and colors. Various colors were also seen in another fashion faction of OU. Foreign students many times wore their native dress to classes. One of the most frequently seen foreign dress was the Indian sari. ' Well-groomed hair was a definite asset for the windy days. Girls and guys both favored the new easy-to-care-for layered look. Rust, green and wine were popular colors. Yet during football season red and white still prevailed. While fashion trends continued to change, at OU good taste remained. Q Z 'Q W I.. F11 El' l ' .. W0 lb 1 1 . t In I a f if l l

66 by Stan Tacker "Well, I didn't try to get rich, I just wanted to make a living," said G.E. Mobley, a long time Norman merchant. i'l've been in business in Norman since 1955 in the same location on campus corner." Most OU students probably wouldn't recognize the name G.E. Mobley, because they have known him for years as Gradyg the same Grady who owned and operated Grady's Grocery at 323 White Street on Campus Corner. Grady retired and sold his store this year, after almost 20 years in Norman. Grady explained that business was getting slow at that location because all of the fraternity and sorority houses moved to the more southern parts of campus. "Back when all the houses were in my location, we used to have three people working behind the counter all the time and used two cash registers." "My wife passed away, you know, about three months ago, and I couldn't do without her. I'm 70 years old, soon to be 71. She did all the bookkeeping. After we were married I sent her to college and she took bookkeeping and accounting and she was an expert on it. Boy, the way it is now, l couldn't keep up with it. You know, a little man in the grocery business practically has to have a full-time bookkeeper, and they're high, very high. The books are complicated, very complicated. They fgovernmenti add more to it every year? Grady leaned back in his easy chair and said with a laugh, 'Tm older than the state of Oklahoma. I was born about 20 miles east of Ardmore in Indian Territory in 1904. "I was captain of the high school football team in Ard- moreg as a matter of fact when I was there, we only lost one game in two years." Grady came to school at OU in 1924 where he was a member of the freshman football team. I-Ie probably remains as one of the biggest OU football fans, to this day. What was the best year for Sooner football? 'Ll think this year's team is the best ever. This team and the 1956 team are a lot alike. They were both great." I remember..."
