Fitted Coats Are Smart

New Tailored Reefers
Are Campus Favorites
Give thanks, oh you women, who
have been bemoaning the fact that
the classic campus coats are warm
and practical-but not beautiful. The
loose box coat which is flattering
to so few people, and looks sloppy on
most, is very much on the wane this
Fitted sport coats which are suit-
ed to every occasion and almost every
figure are replacing the raglan-
sleeved swagger models. A reefer
coat, either double-breasted or single
like the one pictured, makes a per-
fect sport coat. It is tailored but
not sloppy, smart enough to wear
over a silk dress, 'but not. too dressy
to wear to class, and it is every bit
as warm as most camel hair

Art Work In Hawaiian Islands

Of Summer Seminary
By MARTHA POE
A summer seminary of art in the
Hawaiian Islands is being seriously
contemplated by Dr. Avard Fair-
banks, professor of sculpture at the
University. Thi opportunity will be
extended to about 50 persons-
beginners, advanced students and
professionals; in fact to almost any-
one interested in this type of a
school. The work will include all
sorts of graphic and plastic arts.
A great deal of the professor's
time has been spent in the Islands.
He returned in September from Hon-
olulu after spending a summer as
guest professor of art at the summer
session of the University of Hawaii.

not to catch this spirit and the beau-
ty of the region in your work. Also
there are tremendous sociological de-
velopments going on in the Islands
which would present interesting ob-
servation for any student. A large
per cent of the students at the Uni-
versity of Hawaii consist of oriental fasc r
Americans. The old Hawaii still re-
mains but Hawaiians as a pure race
are rapidly diminishing. In the
Islands there is an intermingling of
Philipinos, Koreans, Hawaiians, and
Haoli, or white race, including Span-
ish, Portugese, Latins, and Nordics.
Intermarriage among these various
peoples is developing a new type of
citizenry of which America will be
extremely proud. There is no na-
tional hatred among the races and it
appears that the finest qualities of
all are appearing in this new strain.
The oriental Americans calling
themselves the second generation
seem far more proud of being Ameri-

Came here 1929
An inspiring figure in the field of
creative art, Dr. Fairbanks came to
the University in 1929, directly from
the Seattle Institute of Arts where
he had organized classes in sculp-
ture and creative art. He began his
study of sculpture in New York City
and, following that, studied at four
institutions in Paris. He secured his
degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts at'
Yale University and that of Master
of Fine Arts at the University of
[Washington. From 1920 to 1927 he
was Professor of Art at the Univer-
sity of Oregon and in 1927 he was
awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship
'which made it possible for him to do
creative work in Italy. At the Uni-
versity of Michigan, in 1936, he
secured the degree of Doctor of
Philosophy in Anatomy.
Dr. Fairbanks in his own work is
primarily interested in planning
heroic statuary and has completed
many important commissions. Most
notable among which are the 91st
Division Memorial at Fort Lewis
Washington, Pioneer Mother Memor-
ial in Vancouver, Stanford B. Dole
Memorial, the Winter Quarters
Monument in Omaha, Nebr. This 'round the c
year his statue "Nebula" was ex-
hibited at the New York" World Fair.
"Hawaiian F i s h e r m a n With
Throw Nets" is the title of this
sketch for a statue designed by Dr.
He has lived there at four different
rime during the last 21 years,
and has created many beauti-
ful works of art for the Islands
among which are the Hawaiian
Motherhood Fountain, The Blessing
of Joseph, -decorative friezes on the
Hawaiian Temple at Laie, Oahu and
Typical Life of the Hawaiians for
the McInerny home in Honolulu. He
completed four portrait heads there
this summer and at the present time
is finishing some large subjects in'
painting and sculpture from sketches
made in the Islands. He also is
planning a monument of an "Hawai-
ian Fisherman With Throw Nets,"
