Sept. J-| the V. . C. A. entertained the faculty and students of the scIi«m I at a “get acquainted party.” I he gvin was prettily decorated v ith aulnmn leaves gathered from the Drive. The most striking features of some of the students were made known, especially their weight and the length of their grins. As everyone knew everyone else before the party was over, the purpose of the party was accomplished.
A Halloween costume party was held in the gymnasium Oct. 31st. The gym was fittingly decorated with cornstalks, broomsticks and jack-o-lantcrns. There were costumes of every description ; sheeted ghosts, clowns, and witches. Every nation, every period of history, and every class of society were represented. Before anyone cotdd enter the gym lie was first conducted through Hades. f course the journey was only through the furnace room; Imt going through such a dark, mysterious place on such a dark mysterious night made one feel scary enough to be in the real Hades. Some marvelous feats were performed during the course of the evening: Lydia endeavored to show how a boat should he
rowed. My rtle I;lattner ran a race with herself, and Lawrence Fish sang a song without words.
I lie Senior Class president informed the Junior Class president that it was "up” to the Juniors to do something to entertain the Seniors: so the Juniors gave a dancing party in the gym. As it was a cold night, some of the girls ate supper at school in order to he right there when the party commenced. After supper several of them made use of the music before the musicians came, and others made use of the cot in the rest room. Dancing commenced at half-past eight and continued till eleven. Everyone enjoyed himself as usual.
THE POST-EXAM PARTY.
Jan. 31st a post examination party was given to celebrate the fact that the mid-year finals were over. This party we hope to make an annual event. With the strenuous mental strains of the week over, everyone felt an immense burden ofi‘ his shoulders and just in the right mood to enjoy the party. Stevens Point played basketball in Eau Claire that evening, and after the game the team was invited to the party. The presence of a few extra men added very much to the general fun.

long tlu turbulent tide of the times came the invasion of Costume Design. Heralded by a blare of criticisms, a flash of color, a veritable army of Lines, Spaces, Color, Harmony Contrast. Tones, Unity, Balance and Rhythm, and Miss Hansen, it beseiged our stronghold of Habit and Style.
Taking the initiative. Captain Hansen tore down our love of large bright areas, light shoes with dark dresses, weak pinks and blues, superfluous jewelry, white shirtwaists and dark skirts, middies, and conspicuous undergarments. She left behind her immense areas of devastation, lost and blasted hopes, and, in nut a few cases, resentment,
'The Students of the Kan Claire Normal (hitherto vain, deluded creatures) taking the defensive, struggled along with such ammunition a vain excuses and pitiful justifications. For instance, in response to the campaign of criticism waged against light waists, we said. “But they arc so easily laundered and make for variety." The counter-attack came in this wise. "Well, if you want to break yourselves in two, do it!"
After her first ruthless campaigns, Capt. Hansen set about to reestablish and rebuild broken ideals. We, the members of the Student Division, were forced to acknowledge that desirable and even enviable conditions existed where there was a proper regard for laws of Harmony and Dress Designs; that "the smaller the space, the brighter the color, the larger the space the duller the color" is both truthful and pleasing. How long shall we submit? When making or buying our clothes must we ask ourselves these Questions: If I am stout, shall I get a dress that has a slanting belt, a small pointed collar, and a V-shaped neck to feign slenderness? Or, if I am small and slender shall I wear round or square collars, round necks, and round belts as camouflage."
