What A No-Show Can Do
And like another slogan from another re
cent campaign, it is up to you, and us to do
something about it. If we don’t, it won’t get
Election Day is almost tomorrow and it is
certainly no time to be a no-show, at the polls.
The up-coming elections are classified as
“off-year” as we will not be voting for a
president, but when, certainly not in recent
years, has there been so much “pohticking”
There is bound to be a reason that both
partisan and non-partisan sources are literally
begging for participation at the grass roots
Grass roots, that’s us. The Silent Majority.
This is our year and our chance.
The issues are big, Vietnam, the Middle
East, education, pollution and inflation will be
among those given the voter for decisions.
Down to basics, this year’s is an important
political election. There is a lot, in fact a
whole bunch, of power in the balance. Up
for election or re-election are 35 senators,
35 state governors, all 435 members of the
House of Representatives and more than
7,500 state representatives.
If you are dissatisfied, and who could be
content, with the way your country is being
run, this election is your chance to help de
termine who’ll be at the controls of the U.S.A.
for the next couple of years.
Bear in mind that if you decide to be a
no-show at the polls and a candidate with
whom you disagree is voted into office, it
may take as much as ten long years to unseat
him. A decade will give you plenty of time
for second thoughts about why you didn’t
A no-show at the polls is very much like a
no-show at the ticket counter; your vote, like
your seat on a flight, is a very perishable
commodity. Being there is the only way to
Do's and Don'ts . . .
PROPRIETY OF PANTS
The first day’s reactions varied from shock echoed
by wonder at Women’s Lib, to blatant curiosity.
As we go to press casual attention is setting in.
The revolution has come and is gone. The pant suits
There are still little problems of course.
Perhaps President Davis okayed the pants suits to
give Piedmont the lean, keen look. But not all Piedmont
girls are equipped to give the suits the lean, keen look.
The round, sound look has appeared along with an
occasional obtuse chartreuse. But then, these have
reassuring charms and wasn’t it Shakespeare himself
who mistrusted the lean and hungry types?
Of course, Shakespeare never wore a pants suit,
leaning to tunics and a pantyhose sort of outfit with
bloomers, himself. So he was never confronted with
the problem of deciding what was a pants suit as
opposed to a pants outfit.
To make these weighty decisions some guidelines
of propriety are offered.
• the top of the pants suit should come down to
the top of the leg, or longer.
• it should not be too casual, such as sportswear
or loungewear, but not too dressy either. In other
words, no dungarees.
• the proper accessories should be worn with the
pants suit, i.e. shoes with a heel. Definitely no
tennis shoes or flat sandels.
one-piece pants suits, jump suits or culottes
not proper office attire.
• dresses that are in any way revealing (to say
the least!) at the slightest movement are entirely
Regardless of the outfit, girls, you should maintain
your femininity and show in your manner of dress your
self pride and your pride in Piedmont.
Although dress is a matter of personal taste, there is
a place for supervision of attire when it comes to the
outward appearance of Piedmont. For this reason, if
you are not dressed properly, whether in a pants suit or
not, your department head has every right to, and
should, call it to your attention and remind you to
maintain good grooming practices.
