General Chairman

Harmonious Colors
Form Keynote For
Lovely Costumes
It has been said; "To know the
language of color is to know how to
dress, and to know how to dress is
to know how to live." Few of us
realize how sensitive we are to color
or how easily it may irritate or
please, enliven or depress us.
Costume designers understand the
use of color in conveying dramatic
impressions to an audience, making it
more receptive to the effect of scene
and dialogue. In exactly the same
manner a person can express his or
her mood and personality through
choice 'of color.
Color Groups
There are two general groups-the
"warm" and the "cool." The warm
colors are red, yellow and orange
which arouse sensations of heat and
activity. The cool colors, blue, green
and violet suggest rest and ease.
Color combinations also have in-
teresting effects. Bright colors used
with white are-expressive of gaity and
informality. Colors combined with
gray suggest subtlety, refinement and
charm. Combinations with black
show strength and dignity but some-
times have a sinister tone.
Red Is Enlivening
Single colors also have their as-
sociations. Red is stimulating, or-
ange bright and enlivening. Yellow
and gold 'are gay and rich. The
shades of blue and green with their
intermediates are tranquil and pas-
sive. Purple signifies solemnity,
pomp and vanity.
Black, though smart, is to some
people depressing if unrelieved by ac-
cessories or jewelry. It is most ef-
fective if used with its opposites-
white or bright colors. White, re-
flecting the most light, is luminous
and symbolic of spirit.
A color effect depends upon the
tone of the color also. A reddish
purple is vastly different from one
with a blue tone.
Whether we realize it or not, color
and its correct use influence us
greatly and are important in our
daily life.
Alpha Xi Delta will hold a rushing
dinner tonight, in charge of Jean
Friederici, '37. The decorations will
carry out a Thanksgiving motif. Sat-
urday the sorority will hold open
house after the game.

Recreational Lines
Are Valuable For
College Graduates
"Any college graduate with skill
along the different lines of recreation
is likely to prove more of an aid to
her community than the more stu-
dious graduate," was Miss Agnes
Wayman's answer when she was
asked her views on women's recrea-
Miss Wayman, the head of the
physical education department at
Barnard College and president of the
American Physical Education Society,
is here for a council with Mr. Mitch-
ell, secretary of the association.
"Women who have taken physical
education throughout college will
help to keep certain standards of good
sportsmanship both in the recrea-
tional and educational activities, in
their communities," she claimed. An-
other important idea that she empha-
sized was that adults should have
organized recreation also as well as
"A four year requirement of physi-
cal education," she said, "was a very
practical idea." This is in practice
at Barnard and she said there were
very few complaints against it.

A Little Light on Books and
1. What society is so instinctively
moral and absolutely unselfish that
its members require no ethical train-
ing whatever?
2. Who wanted to make herself a
sleeveless Sunday dress out of the skin
of her enemy?
3. What play of Galsworthy's made
George Arliss so stout that he could
carcely move?
4. Why does the face of the Mona
Lisa resemble Leonardo da Vinci's?
5. What is burking?
The answers to these questions can
be found in the following books which
are on the display table in the League

Let Greene's Experts
Solve your Blocking

How much light is there outdoors on a bright, sunshiny day? If you were standing
in an open field on such a day, there might be as much as 10,000 footcandles of light
falling on you. The sun might supply 8000 footcandles of direct light and the sky
would give 2000 footcandles of reflected light - just as the ceiling of a room reflects
light from a floor lamp. If a dark cloud suddenly passed in front of the sun, it might
cut down the amount of light to only 2000 footcandles of light.
Now if you went indoors and stood beside a window where there was no direct
sunlight streaming in, you would expect that the light at the window would be less ...
because from the window you can see only a small part of the entire sky. As a matter
of fact, from an average-sized window, you can see only about one-twentieth of the
entire sky. So if the total light outdoors that came from the sky alone, or about 2000
footcandles of light, were reduced to one-twentieth, you would get only 100 foot-
candles of light at the window sill. Of course, this amount varies a lot in the course
of a day and also from one season to another.
Of the 100 footcandles of light that strike the window glass, as much as one-quarter
may be reflected back by the glass itself, just as a mirror reflects light. In addition,
another 10 footcandles are absorbed by the glass when they pass through the window.
If screens are used, about one-third of the light may be shut out by the screen. Even
a week or so after cleaning, the thin film of moisture and dust that collects on the
window will cut down the light by one-quarter.
The point is that it is very difficult to get daylight indoors. In fact, by the time
we get it just inside the window, 99 percent of it is lost on the way. That's one reason
why most schoolrooms have many windows. Proper lighting means less effort in see-
ing - less strain on eyes, nerves and body. It is just as necessary as proper glasses.
Light and glasses are good friends. Eyes should be examined every year.
The Detroit Edison Company will gladly check the lighting in your classrooms to
