James H. Curtis is in charge of the

The traditional Homecoming dance
at the Acacia house is being planned
by James Lientz, '36E and Willis
Player, '37. This party will also be
informal and closed.

Fancy Materials Are Popular
Quilted satin, organdy, and velve-
teen, are of course less durable than
the other pillows, but are very pretty
for the dainty room. Velveteen pillows
are especially decorative in small
squares, on which Scotty dogs and ter-
riers are sewn in bright mosaic work.
A pleasing feature about pillows this
year is that the majority of them are
not in thie conventional square, round,
or rectangular shapes, but in most
cases are in the form of elephants,
horses, dogs, and innumerable kinds
of dolls.
For the studio or den, some very
appropriate pillows are those of Chi-
nese print. They are made of genuine
imported Chinese silk and are em-
broidered with gold thread. The de-
signs consist of Chinese pagodas,
