There's nothing quite as engross-
ing during the first days of a semes-
ter as the problems in interior dec-
oration which assail the distracted,
co-ed who is just moving into new?
quarters. If it happens to be herj
first experience with a sorority orI
dormitory room the problem of dec-
oaating it is a major one and even
if she is an old hand at the matter
it is a project which is apt to con-
sume all her time and energy for
the first few weeks to the exclusionI
of such minor matters as classes and
the getting of an education.
The main problem is that of raak-
ing a cell-like "dorm" room which
seems almost microscopic to the poor
freshman girl a bit more spacious and
home-like. This may be solved by
the judicious use of color and ar-
rangeinent of furniture, says Profes-
sor Herbert A. Fowler of the decora-
tive design department.
The large backgrounds and the
most important color notes should be
in general of blues, greens, and vio-
lets, the so-called cool colors, which
give the eflect of misty distances and
vistas. Por more striking spots of
color the orngyes, reds, and yellows,
and the neutra+l shades, for instane,
henna and the new tiger lily shade,
wvhichare oranges greyed, may be
used. ihe smaller articles such as
cushions and spreads should be in
these colors to give t o ii c h e s of
warmth to the room.
Orderliiess, w"lhicli is (Jite defi-
nitely not the forte of the average
college girl, is one of the prime req-
uisites for a sense of spaciousness.
By this is meant not only ordinary
neatness but primarily the placing
of furniture in many convenient
groupings with a free area left in
the middle of the room where one
may get at least a little feeling of the
wide open spaces.
To Carry out this effect a large
carpet is better than numerous small
rugs. It gives the illusion of space
as well as being more practical for
hurried exits and entrances or for
setting up exercises and the like.
The wall space may be treated in
much the same manner with pictures
grouped in connection with the fur-
niture to give an orderly effect and a
good deal of space between the
gioups to give the illusion of "mag-
The pictures themselves in such
an intimate room should be small,
but the groups may be built up to
a considerable. size. The principle
invlved in the building up of large'
groups seems a bit complicated. A
person looing at a large group of
pictures infers that the room itself
must be large as there would not be
space enough in a very small room
for such a sizable group.
It may sound only like a very spe-
cial way of fooling the public, but it
really does work according to all the

An unprecedented event in the his-

in connection with this year's Frosh

Last year the Frolic was not sold
out until the day before the dance,
and then only when the price was

300 tickets were sold in all, at $2.00
each. The dance takes place March

,1atake-up Techi iq ttehImp ofna it
For Various Roles In J. G. P .
By MARIE MURPHY
Just as it is important for the mod-
ern girl to apply make-up to empha-
size her best features, so it is on the
stage that by following certain tech-
nicalities in the use or rouge and
black "liners" the essential charac-
teristics of a type may be brought
out. This was pointed out by Mary
Ferris, who is in charge of make-up
for "Gang's All There," in a recent
"The more general types are fairly
simple to portray," Miss Ferris said,
"Old age, for example, is shown by
dark grey "liners" for wrinkles at
the corners of the eyes, lines at the
mouth, shadows in the hollows of the
cheeks and spirit gum on the eye-
brows to make them appear shaggy,"
It is even possible, Miss Ferris
stated, to make the face appear
broader or longer by placing the
rouge correctly. To effect an appear-
ance of wide features the rouge is
applied from near the center of the
face, shading almost tothe hairline
at the side of the face; for length,
of course, the opposite would be true.
In addition the eyebrows would be
drawn close to the eyes and the lips
colored broader to produce a full,
The choruses for "Gang's All
There," according to Miss Ferris, will
require make-up judiciously applied
to transform feminine faces into
those of gangsters, chorines, "high
yaller gals," and Viennese doctors.
These will all provide interesting
problems in characterization, she
"The mug," she explained, "would
need coarse features, and so we will
have to thicken the eyebrows, brush
the hair straight back from the fore-
head, and darken the skin coloring.
There will be nothing on the eye-
lashes, and just a bit of eyeshadow,
while the lips will be a dark red with
the lower lip a little thick."
The doctors will have thin lines
drawn at the sides of their eyes, and
heavy shadows over the eyes to give
j dark effect, she continued. "We
shall probably make quaint Van Dyke
beards for them too."
Make Up "High-Yallers"
The "high-yaller gals," the colored
dancers in a night club will be cov-
ered with a dark yellow base; their
eyelashes will be heavily beaded, and
their lips will be thick and brilliant
red. The "molls" will not be espe-
cially difficult to make-up, Miss Fer-
ris remarked, for placing the rouge in
round, red spots in the center of the
cheek, brightening their lips, and
giving them a great deal of eyesha-
dow will produce that "hard' look.
'In any dramatic production the
acting is naturally an outstanding
feature, but just as good sets and
appropriate costumes are essential,
the proper make-up is necessary,"
Miss Ferris said.
