As a general "rule if they are not
•planning to teach, their school work
is not so important to them. Others
that are going to make their own
living must study hard, while the en-
gaged girl spends most of her time
wishing she could see hen boy friend,
nd she gets home&ick and blue."
On the other han<^ two people were

Simmons su; I " I <irp t'*" ways
of looking at the question. If it is
merely a m&tter of infatuation, they
pay no attention to their studies.
Their mind is chiefly on the young
man in question. But if a girl really
and truly loves a man she will give
helself to the utmost to please him
through jrood work. If I loved a girl,
I would work my head off to please
her; otherwise I expect I* %ould
spend more time in day dreaming."
^ Op.al McDougal was very definitely
of that opinion because she said, "The
cjMUfed girl sees a definite end and
pui5 se and neccessity for doing~her
best work, while a great majority
of the other girls have not decided
definitely what they are going to do,
and have no purpose in their work.
This applies to the sincere type of
girl. I do not think it holds true
for the more frivolous type.'

said Thelma Leo Deen, Sophomore,

pression I have when I see the long

claimed Ruth Bailey, sophomore,
Forney, when asked for her opinion.
Tlve long graceful- lines give length
and. sldnderness to the plump figure.
I am glad to see the long forsaken
curvos come into their own again."
Edna Hall, senior, Corpus Christi,
does not like the majority of the new
dresses. * "I do like the dresses longer
than the flapper length but I do not
think the extremely long ones, as are
now being worn, are at all pretty or,
graceful. The tailored and sport
dresses are espectelly unattractive
and inappropriate' in the new
lengths," she said. "They all hinder
freedom of movement and activeness."
