Lecture Initiates New Series O Orientation Events
Dr. S. A. Courtis
League Committee Inauilrates,
New Program For Orientation
"Why Come To
I' Subject Of
Dr. Stuart A. Courtis of the School
of Education addressed the freshmen
women yesterday afternoon at the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre. His talk,
entitled "Why Come To College?",
was the first of a series of eight orien-
tation lectures to be given for the
benefit of freshmen women by prom-
inent members of the faculty. Many
atten~ded this address.
"Every year a great Niagara of
youth flows through this University;
some turn out failures, some meet
with success," said Dr. Courtis. "All
the opportunities are here ready for
yqu, but each year the faculty must
sit back and watch, dreading to see
the students choosing unwisely. The
campus is full of dangers as well as
possibilities and opportunities for
growth and advancement."
"When you look at the buildings on
this campus, probably not one of you
stop to think of the millions of people
who have given time and money to
give you these buildings. These peo-
ple of the state of Michigan believe in
the importance of your education. It
is your responsibility to justify this
"Your professors are not merely
crabby old men and women who re-
fuse to understand young people, they
are men and women who have been
selected because they have a great
deal to give you and desire to be of
service. I admit there are cross,
cranky old fossils around-they are
to be found on every campus; but
they have become that way through
disappointment as year after year
they have watched young pebple go-
ing their own way, in spite of the at-
tempts of those who have had years
of valuable experience to help them."
"Whether you like it or not you are
going to eat here on this campus of
the tree of good and evil; won't you
also reach out your hand an pick
an apple from the tree of life?"

Very Dark Shades
For All Occasions
Stockings can be depended upon to
cause greater grief to the wearer and
her allowance than all other apparel.
The first weeks of school diminish
the once ample supply of hosiery for
every occasion to almost a minus
quantity. The situation is a desper-
ate one 'to remedy, but when the stock
has to be replenished here are a few
The shades for winter are darker
this season than before. One of the
lighter colors is called Bark and goes
equally well with black, brown, green,
navy blue, or grey. It is a neutral
shade with a slight brownish cast.
Another color that goes well with
black, grey and green is Smoky.
The darker stockings are called
Heather, Malacca, and Ebony. The
first mentioned is designed exclusive-
ly for wear with lighter shade of
brown. Malacca is a rich mahogany
brown that is perfect with brown
suede shoes, brown velvets, and wools.
' he sheer Malacca-colored stocking
is shadowless and ringless and is de-
signed solely for dress wear. The
same may be said for the Ebony color.
I~t is really a cobwebby two-strand
black stocking and is hardly fitted
for street 'wear.

Upper classmen will assist in the
work done by the University during

WASHINGTON, Sept. 26- (A')-

apparel here is Sept. 15.
Nail Lacquers Are
Newest In Brilliant
Colors For Everting
According to a representative of
one of the leading New York houses
specializing in manicure necessities,
the darker shades of polish in red
are definitely losing favor in Paris.
Local custom still sanctions the bril-
liant lacquers for evening °wear, but
they will be seen almost never in the
Among the new paler shades is a
particularly beautiful one called Cyc-
lamen, which is unique in that it is
more natural than the usual natural
shades by other makers. The basic
color is approximately that of the
blood, which makes for a very pleas-
ing and unobtrusive appearance.
Three good bright reds by the same
maker are Mahogany, Fire Engine
Red, and Oxblood. These are as good
reds as can be found.
Some of the newest ideas in eve-
ning nail make-up may be a little
extreme, but very intriguing effects
may be produced if a reasonable
amount of discretion is brought to
bear on the selection of colors. An
iridescent gold is fascinating with
the proper gown, and a new pearly
rose creme polish achieves amazing
results. Other shades to be used very
carefully are Amythest, Violet, and
White Pearl. If handled properly
they are in perfect taste, but if im-
properly used any outstanding color beside two shade of polish and re-
