D I Athletic Ecents ~ New W.A.A. Sport Season To Include

J- lop To Have
Sky Blue Motif
In Decorations
End Panels To Be Draped
in Red Velvet Trimmed
With Metallic Material
Silver glitter stars in a center pan-
nel of blue will give a sky effect to
the decorations planned for the 1939
J-Hop according to Wes Lane, '40 and
Don Nixon, '40, co-chairmen of dec-
The ceiling of the room will have
large strips of medium blue cloth
and light tan cloth running the
length of the Intramural Building.
There will be a six foot valance of
blue material connecting the ceiling
with each booth, and on each valance
fraternity insignias will be placed to
designate the various booths.
PaInels To Have Red Velvet
The focal points in tnis year's
scheme of decorations are centered at
each end of the room and on the two
band stands, Lane said. The end
panels will be draped in' a dark red
velour trimmed with metallic drapes.
It is planned to throw spot lights on
the cloth so that the figures will be
shown in relief at each end of the
The booths will be draped with bur-
gundy sateen trimmed in gold to meet
the columjns. The booths at the west
end for the independent groups will
be furnished with red chrome chairs
and daenports. ,
Modernistic Lighting Effect
The columns around the room, sep-
arating the booths, will be semi-cir-
cular and. will be arranged to pro-
duce a subdued lighting effect, in
keeping with the metropolitan air of
the decorations. The top of the col-
umn will be of a modernistic design
to blend with the valance, Lane said.
For the first time in its history, the
J-Hop committee has provided for
an attached seat around the base of
each column, the chairman of the
decoration committee announced. In
this manner it will be possible to give
additional seating facilities for those
attending the dance.
The band stands will be directly op-
posite each other on each side of the
room and will be draped with red ve-
lours background. The base of the
bandstands will be surrounded with
stiff metallic material with a scal-
loped edge.
Now Stressed
For All Nurses
Social life for the student nurses at
Couzens Hall, which, with its 285
single sleeping rooms, lounges and li-
brary, kitchenette and sun parlors,
makes one of the most modern and
complete nurses' residences in the
country today, is of necessity a little
fuller in some respects than is that
of other dormitories on the campus.
As life begins at 6:50 in the morn-
ing and continues through the day
until about 7 p.m. for the majority of
student, it is easy to see why they
participate so little in ordinary ex-
tra-curricular activities. When we
add to this the fact that most study-
ing must be done between 7 p.m. and
10 p.m., with lights out at 10:30, we
find a practical reason for the at-
tempts to increase the social life with-
in the Hall itself.
Activities Are Regulated
The Student Cooperative Govern-

ment Association, to which every stu-
dent belongs, the Executive Commit-
tee of this organization, and a Fac-
ulty Advisory Committee regulate, in
a general way, all undergraduate ac-
tivities that are not academic in na-
The Outdoor Club provides, for
those who are fond of this form of
receration, such activities as hiking,
breakfasts at the Island, camp-fire
hours, canoeing and tennis.
F The school sponsors three outside
dances a year, two of which are for-
mal and are held at the League, and
one of the informal type, given at
the Women's Athletic Building. One
or two house dances are also included
each year.
Edit Two Publications
Two publications, Scalpel, an an-
nual, and TPR, a monthly magazine,
are edited by students who are in-
terested in this type of activity.
A Dramatic Club, with membership
open to all residents, meets for the
purpose of reading and discussing
plays and their authors, as well as
the art of stage management. The
Club's one-act plays are a popular
feature on many of the school's en-
tertainment programs.
In such ways does the school,
through the medium of social ac-
tivities, try to provide a carefully
planned recreational program which
will meet the extra-curricular needs
of the undergraduate nurse.
