Twelve new desks in the League,
and 12new committee chairmen in
charge of the desks and the duties
that go with them, marks one indi-
cation that the new League system is
under way.
There have been several external
evidences of thepnew regime. In the
hall, for example, is an information
desk, that is to be occupied by mem-
bers of the reception committee. Of-
fices have been exchanged. Miss Eth-
el McCormick, social director of the
League, occupies the office that was
formerly known as the business of-
fice. Prof. Herbert Kenyon, director
of dramatics, now has an office in the
building, whereas Russell McCracken,
dramatic director, has his desk in the
outer office of the Undergraduate
'Every day the undergraduate of-
fice hums with activity; conferences
are the thing of the day. Maxine
Maynard's desk pad has been marked
for days in advance for consultations
with each one of the committee chair-
men, for the process of defining the
respective duties of many committees
is not easy.
The constitution, of course, has to
be revised, and the women have re-
written many of the old clauses, add-
ing the new features.
With the League Council meeting
twice a week, the work of each woman
is becoming more clearly defined.
Chief of the duties of each of the
chairmen now is the handling of the
petitions which have been received
from women desiring to have some
part in the new system. So many
petitions have been received, Miss
Maynard said, that announcement of
the new committee members will not
be made until next week, giving the
women an opportunity to consider
all applications fairly.

The mysteries of the Sphinx in that
distant country of the Nile diminish-
cd in importance less than a decad:
ago when remarkable archeological
discoveries revealed the treasure
houses of the famous King Tut and
his court. The entire world was so
stirred that not only were new words
added to the cross-word puzzles and
women's styles changed, but even
the architects decided to use Egypt-
ian art for their decorative scheme in
A great gilded boat, such as Cleo-
patra with her 1000 snaves must have
sailed in during the days of the
Caesars, was depicted on one of the
panels forming the large freizef
around the ballroom. A mighty (
Pharoah mounted in his flying char-
iot stormed a fortress in another!
panel.rA touch of humor was lent to
the scene by the maps which are dec-
orated with ancient Egyptians in
modern settings.
In order to lay out the details of
the decorations on a large scale a
steoroptican machine was used to
throw the outline of the different
buildings upon large sheets of paper
tacked to the wall. The students
simply traced these outlines, rapidly
obtaining the exact proportions. The
Daily account of this ball says "that
these decorations could not be dupli-
cated by professional decorators for
less than $5,000. The Egyptian Par-
ty has also been the subject of much
unsolicited publicity in papers of the
state and rchitectural journals."
Elf Party Held
Then in a whimsical moment the
committee decided the next year that
history was all right for the theme
of the previous year, but they say
that "history repeats itself" and ev-
ery May Party must be new and dif-
ferent, so they made preparations
for the "Elves Garden Revel."
One's first reaction after passing
through a knarled old tree trunk,
leaving the materialistic and mer-
cenary world behind, was to feel the
effect of the huge blue sky above the
large low-hanging cobweb. Stretch-
ing oti t on ali sides it gives one a
feeling of isolation.
Around [1 ic walls, in a continuous
d'esign, mnrt)strous bugs and garden
creatures of vivid coloring and imag-

inative design peered at one through
he tall grasses, while more than one
pair partner shrunk back from the
immense soft garden snakes which
served as seats.
Ball On Mars
Another flight of imagination a.
few years ago brought forth the Mar-
tian Ball. Many a co-ed sat in class-
es wearily trying to figure what
would be appropriate for a dance
given on that stellar body.
The costumes that year showed
more originality and more effort in
design than any previously. Heading
the list, of course, were the stately
ing and queen of Mars. The latter
wore a shimmering gown of silver,
with a tall headress and sparkling
gauntlets, while her escort was garb-
ed in a shining suit of mail.
Many came dressed in geometric
designs, in cork-screw-like outfits}
and spherical suits. The prize for I
the best costume went to the couple{
dressed as silver funnels.,
This year there will be fewer cos-
tumes, but the plans for the decora-
tions of the ball are being carried out
on a large scale to provide a real sett-
ing for the famous "Arabian Nights."

Shows New Ice Box
(By Intercollegiate Press)
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., May 10. ---
A magician's ice box with the almost
incredible range of 162 degrees Fah-
renheit is one of the new marvels of
science demonstrated here at the 87th
annual meeting of the American
Chemical Society.
This refrigerator can be kept at the
comparatively mild temperature of
55 degrees above zero, or by a turn of
the dial can be chilled to 107 degrees
below zero.
Described as a conquest of consid-
erable importance in the field of re-
frigeration, the invention for the first
time harnesses the intense cold of
solid carbon dioxide, commonly called
dry'ice, and bends it to man's will.
Unlike ordinary ice, carbon dioxide
does not melt but evaportes, leaving
no moisture whatever in any part of
the refrigerator. A cake of dry ice laid
upon the dining room table will soon
disintegrate without wetting the cloth
or injur7ing it in any way.
