Keeping closets Clean, Orderly
Is Problem In Limited Spcace,
It was stated that interesting the
students in these things is made very
difficult by the fact that students
newly-arrived on campus, and even
those who have been here for some
time, are somewhat baffled by the
situation in which they find them-
selves and have not developed rules
by which to govern their lives nor
goals toward which they may work.

Dress Bags Of Cellophane,
Sweater And Hat Boxesa
By VIRGINIA VORHEES
Closets, like bureau drawers, need
attention when the subject of order!
arises. This matter seems an espe-
cially pertinent one when we take
account of the limited amount of
such space with which college wom-
en are supplied.
Although the redecoration of clos-
ets offers endless opportunities in the
way of added shelves covered with
materials matching the color scheme'
of your room and practical steel shoe
and hat racks which may be covered
with the same material and are
handy when placed on the inside of
the closet door, one is definitely lim-
ited in attempts to install such in-
novations. Landladies and dormitory
directors do not seem to appreciate
these indications of originality.
Order Is Important
A woman must consequently focus
her attention upon ways and means
of overcoming closet handicaps by
making use of less drastic measures
to maintain order and cleanliness.
It is hardly necessary to mention
the dustproof zipper or button dress
bags which come to fit formals or
street-length dresses. Perhaps a
newer addition in this realm are
those bags of glazed cheese-cloth, or
cellophane which come in the blouse
length as well as in the other sizes.
The transparence of these cheese-
cloth and cellophane affairs free the
time-saver from the trouble of un-
fastening several bags before the
right frock is found. This last point
