 4 HANSOCRACY UNMASKED 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."

Must we endeavor lo delude the public and make ourselves look like "what we’aint'?" Must we. with egotistical complacency, put personality and individuality above the demand of the masses? If we follow not in the chosen path of Style, Class, and Fashion, what will people say 1 Captain Hansen found us unprepared, hut in the exultation of internal peace and satisfaction. Today, we are not prostrate before this apostle of Harmony, but steeled to resistance. Let us avenge ourselves Oh Xonualites! and hope the day will soon come when we mav again worship at the Shrine of the (ioddcss of Fashion. C. 13. SHE CAME. SHE SAW. SHE CONQUERED. "'I he lady o! the house, 1 presume? I am the traveling agent for Pratt's famous new edition of the Child’s Encyclopedia and Books of Knowledge. I will just step in, and we’ll glance over the hooks together before I take your order." As good as her word, the formidable speaker of these words opened the screen door, walked briskly in. and seating herself in the nearest chair, proceeded to Open her sample case. "The encyclopedia, as you see, will help your children greatly in their school work, and this book of Questions of Childhood Answered contains answers to those startling and incessant questions that children ask daily. Here, for example, is a perfectly satisfactory answer to the irrelevant question How far can a cow jump? and here is one on hat does Cod eat?' N on can----’’ "lint," timidh interrupted the anxious “lady of the house", “We have no-------” "Of course." interposed the other, “you have had no trouble as yet with the questions of your children, hut you know that as their minds develop they must be fed the knowledge they demand, and this set of books was especially compiled to meet that demand. This is a chance no mother can afford to lose. It is an absolute necessity for the busy parent, and certainly a great bargain for only $24.4 ) the set and six months to pay. Just see-----" "There are only two-------", stammered Mrs. John Deering, bride of three weeks, twisting her hands nervously in her apron, and glancing toward the clock. “Only two. but two children ask as many questions in a day as ten, and they will find such company with these hooks. I hev will have so many interests in common, and though it will be mere play to them, the results----” “My husband------’’. cut in Mrs. Deering desperately.
