Contest In May
Prize To Be Two Weeks
At Sketch Camp; Details,
To Be Announced Later
The University Art Exchange, lo-
cated in the League, is planning a
contest to offer two weeks free tui-
tion and living expenses at the Mich-
igan Sketch Camp to any student
now enrolled in the University who
submits the best work of art com-
pleted during the spring semester of
this year.
Only work done in water color,
pencil, pastel, or block printing will
be judged in the contest. The re-
quirements offthecontest will be
published in full at the beginning
of the spring semester. The contest
will terminate in the second week of
May, exact date to be announced
later. Judging will be done by a
committee selected by the Art Ex-
The Michigan Sketch Camp is lo-
cated about 15 miles north of Har-
bor Springs in the northern part of
the lower peninsula on the shores
of Lake Michigan. The site is heav-
ily wooded and its natural beauty
is great.
Saturday, Aug. 13 is the opening
date of the camp. There will be two
periods of two weeks each with the
closing on Friday, Sept. 14, the dates
planned so that students who wish
to attend summer school in Ann Ar-
bor will also be able to attend the
camp before school opens in the fall.
Attendance will be limited to about
30 or 35 people interested in art
work. Daily classes in drawing and
painting will comprise part of the
camp program.
The purpose of the Sketch Camp
is to give the members an uninter-
rupted opportunity to draw and paint
with expert aid from well-known

Value And Dangers In Use Of
Cosmetics Revealed In Report,

Although most cosmetic products
are harmless enough, there has crept'
into use an occasional beauty prod-
uct, the use of which may be highly
dangerous, said an official report of
the University Health Service re-
leased yesterday.
Such products cannot be too
strongly condemned, especially in
consideration of the phenomenal
growth and use of cosmetics during
recent years, largely caused by ex-
tensive advertising through the pub-
lic press, magazines and radio pro-
Cosmetic creams may be classified
in three types as follows: cold
creams, finishing or foundation
creams, and those of the absorption
type or tissue creams. The selection
of any particular type of cream is
dependent entirely on the needs of
the individual skin.
A particularly objectionable cream
is the freckle remover sold for beau-
tifying the face, removing freckles
and moth patches. These freckle
removing creams often contain as
the active agent, ammoniated mer-
cury. The use of such cream is dan-
gerous and many cases have been re-
ported in medical literature of severe
cases of dermatitis resulting from
their .use.
On the other hand, cold creams
and cleansing creams may be used
to cleanse the skin, they being suit-
able agents for the removal of sur-
face waste as powder and rouge. The
quality.of the article, however, is in
no relationship to the price some-
times asked for it. Recently a qual-
itative analysis showed a particular
brand of expensive cleansing cream
to consist of cotton-seed fat and
vaseline, perfumed with synthetic oil
of rose.
Creams of the cold and cleansing
type consist of a high oil content
with sufficient hardening agents such
as wax to give it stiffness. The in-
corporation of a small amount of
water is of value, as the emulsion
so produced cleans s more effective-
Finishing and foundation creams
are used extensively as powder bases
and to protect the skin from irrita-
tion. The common types used are
made up of a large percentage of
water, glycerine and soap. Some
types are quite alkaline, and un-
doubtedly have a drying effect on the
skin. Recent experimentation has
shown that it is possible to produce
creams of this type which are non-
alkaline and quite safe to use.
Tissue creams, though not a re-
cent development, are being exten-
sively advertised, claiming to be "re-
juvenating" gnd "nourishing" in ef-
fect. Such claims cannot be sub-
stantiated by act and are mislead-
ing. These ciieanms are like cold

creams with varying amounts of
lanolin added to increase absorp-
tion. Such creams may be useful if
the skin is unusually dry and harsh.
The use of some cosmetic creams
certainly has a legitimate place. They
may have a softening, emollient and
cleansing effect on the skin, but the
chief objections lie in the extrava-
gant and often ridiculous claims
made by the manufacturer together
with the skin damage which results
from the use of some of them.
