ter vacation with appointments
and tryouts.

.will be from 9 to 12 o'clock and,

the play. All juniors who are on the

ceived from Dr. Margaret Bell, pro-
fessor' of physical education and

Early History of United States
Portrayed in Paintings
by Benton.
Many favorable comments have
been made upon the Art exhibit
which is now being shown on the
second floor of Alumni Memorial
The paintings by Thomas Hart
Benton may be divided into two
groups. The first composed of sev-
en large canvases portrays the
Early History of United States and
includes paintings by the titles of:
Discovery, Prayer, Aggression, Re-
tribution, Struggle of Wilderness,
On the Mountains.
The second group, in the South
gallery, is smaller. It is composed
of the much discussed mural dec-
orations used in the Directors room
of New York School for Research.
For this reason many limitations
have been imposed upon the art-
ist. These paintings represent the
numerous recreational and occupa-
tional activities of America. So
much material is included in each
panel that it is difficult to title
them. In general they refer indi-
vidually to cotton, lumber, oil fields I
and the west, coal, steel, city and
ship building. One panel is devoted
to instruments of power and two
describe urban live with emphasis
on its diversions. They are, in brief,
a perspective of American life, with
all its gusto, vitality, and crudity,
at its most blatant height. It is.
America seen at its work and play,
in unmitigated inelegance. Benton

Aim of Discussions to Pre
Women for Collegiate

By B. A. C., '34.
Furs are not only used this sea-
son with regard for beauty and
effect, but also with regard for
practicability. Fur scarves on coats
are decidedly chic. However, the
newer ones have an especial attrac-
tion. They are detachable, and may
be used with woolen dresses as well.
Then, too, there are just small
notes of fur being introduced into
the frocks, a bow on a collar, for
example adding much of interest.
Fur trimmed cuffs are also de-
tachable. Those used on one's coat
may be used equally well on one's
dress. Some of the very newest
cuffs may be fastened together in
such a way as to form a muff.
Fur vestees are also used with
dark woolen dresses. Ermine and
broadtail, either in a detachable
vestee, or as an actual part of the
dress are very attractive.
