weekly orientation lectures given for
the freshmen women will be held at
5 p.m. today in the Lydia Mendels-
sohn Theatre. The program has been
planned to include three speakers.
Dean Alice C. Lloyd has planned
to devote ten minutes to the discus-
sion of the desirable personality to be
obtained by University women.
Mr. Valentine B. Windt, director of
Play Production, and newly appoint-
ed director of the Children's Theatre,
will continue with an explanation of
the opportunities in drama which are
offered to the students.

Mexico - land of volcanic peaks
smoldering against a blue sky, of
ancicnt r~ed rocks lying in mammoth
folds where lizards doze and scramble
in the brilliant sun: home of the ba-
nana, the noisy monkey tribe and the
treacherous alligazor; where fields of
maize and sugar cane flourish in clear
mountain air just an hour's journey
from the humid vapors of marsh
lands; a land of contradictions - an-
cient ruins vying with modern indus-
tries, tropical foliage sene from the
snowy summits of towering moun-
tains, peace versus revolution.

Spanish movies and theatres and
joining in their activities. She has re-
turned with a fund of fascinating ex-
periences and ideas compiled in lec-

Aren't you proud of that glorious rosy color
this fall weather is doing for your skin?
Aren't you about ready to discard the former
and flatter the latter? Then, by all means,
have a BLACK dress. It makes you look radi-
antly healthy, sleek, svelte, sophisticated.
Because the smartest women in the world
wear black, because the black frock has a
distinction that is absolutely unique, because
it has ever been a Paris favorite (and still is)
and because it has a particular appeal, a very
special chic, at this point in the year, Jacob-
son's features it importantly now.

3. What is the most complete and
perfect piece of glasswork in the
world, and where is it?
4. Why did Frank Craig, the artist,

5. What famous woman at the mo-
