That was in the late 1920's and
now wMi the chemise.
As a designer and as a man,
Henderson doesn't like the new
look. "The basic principle of wo-
men's fashion is to enhance the
figure's natural form," he said.
"The chemise destroys the waist-
line, always an essential to the
"Generally the more beautiful
and flattering a style fis, the
(longer it lasts." He gives the
chemise "a couple of years."
Weber college SIGNPOST ed-
itors are also viewing with alarm

ment, will be published April 30.
This book is the culmination
of a long interest in James
Thomson and considerable re-
research in various university
libraries for scattered manu-
Though Thomson was the
"most popular Scottish-born
writer before Burns," he is one
of the few major eighteenth
century writers whose letters
have not been collected and edited
in the last generation.
Dr. McKillop's book, according
to the cover, "furnishes import-
ant biographical and literary
evidence and casts light on his
personality. The editor, a well-
known authority on Thomson,
supplies helpful notes."
The book is Dr. McKillop's
sixth, and was completed during
his recent Sabbatical leave for
study in England and Scotland.

THE MENTAL MARVEL mentioned above is so studious
he made Phi Bete in his junior year—of high school!
When he walks into classrooms, professors stand. The
last time he got less than 100%, the proctor was
cheating. When it comes to smoking, he gets straight
A's for taste. He smokes (All together, class!) Lucky
Strike! Naturally, our student is fully versed on the
subject of Lucky's fine, light* good-tasting tobacco.
He's well aware that it's toasted to taste even better.
So when someone asks him for a cigarette, he's
happy to spread the good taste. And that makes him
a Kind Grind! Assignment: try Luckies yourself!
Don't fust stand there...
