TO BE OPEN TO VISITORS
by P. R.
Beautifully furnished rooms and
halls, well equipped service depart-
ments, excellent facilities of mod-
ern type and construction, and
properly chosen accoutrements
from the basement to the fourth
floor . feature the interior of the
new Women's League building
which will be seen by many inter-
ested groups for the first time to-
day.
Inspection of the building earlier
in the week revealed that every de-
tail throughout the structure had
received special attention by those
in charge with the result that the
completeness, the taste in furnish-
ings, and the adequacy of the va-
rious facilities can not Out impress
the visitor to the new home of the
Women's League.
Has Spacious Lobby
Two reception rooms form the
first view upon entering the build-
ing from the main entrance on In-
galls street. A spacious main lobby,
with numerous comfortable chairs,
occupies the space immediately in
front of the doorway. The floor is
of stone and inlaid tile in a neat
design. Opposite the lobby is the
information desk.
.To the right, along a hall in
which commodious lounging chairs
are placed at intervals, will be
found the entrance to a modern,
up-to-date beauty parlor under the
direction of a competent expert.
Specially constructed barber chairs
with black patent leather backs
and green trimming, all harmoniz-
ing with the general make-up of
the room, are striking points of in-
terest. Next to the beauty parlor isa
the tea room, which will be brought
into use with the Mortarboard ini-
tiation breakfast in the near fu-1
ture. Brilliantly colored tilesofd
purple, black, yellow, red, and
green hues form the floor, har- j
monizing with curtains of an ap-
propriate design.
Opposite the tea room, the vis-
itor will find the as yet un-named
cafeteria and the kitchen which
will prepare food for more than 400

pacity. A partition between the
serving line and the tables renders gui
the diners in the room free from e
1 noisy clattering of dishes on the
other side of the cafeteria.
At the opposite end of the hall is
situated the chapel shown in one
of the pictures on this page. Fine
oak panels and an altar of splendid
appearance lend an atmosphere of
quietude to this unusual room. The
remaining space on the first floor /
is occupied by the office of the gen- _ /
eral manager, Mrs. Z. B. Bowles, the
alumnae council offices, the W. A.
A. office and reception rooms, as
well as the box-office of the new
theater.

on the second floor. Here, too, areI
