Hobby House' Needs Decorators

Did you ever have the desire to
putter around with paints, to slap
a bit here and there- Didn't you
ever wish that you had some retreat
where you could go to participate in
your interest-be it knitting, sculp-
ture, or fasion designing-without
ridicule or interruption?
To accomplish thisdream the Pal-
mer Field equipment house is being
remodeled into a "Hobby House" un-
der the sponsorship of the Woman's
Athletic Association.
Jane Brichan, '40, chairman of the
group planning the redecoration of
the cottage, asks all interested wo-
men to come to the new Hobby House
during the working. hours. She ad-
vises all potential painters or interior
decorators to come in old clothes.
The working hours of the Hobby
House are from 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Tuesday and Thursday and from 9I
a.m. to 12 noon Saturday. The ma-

terials for the redecorating are to
be furnished by the University.
Needed especially is some creative
soul to paint the murals on the walls
of the house. Miss Brichan asks
that anyone with ideas for the mur-
als get in touch with her.
She. stressed that this' is a hobby
house for University women. They
may do whatever they desire with it.
Each woman is invited to add her
own personal touch whether it is in
hanging a curtain or designing a
After completing the renovation of
the building, the Hobby House will
serve as a center for all avocations.
If enough women are interested, Miss,
Brichan said that a photography
dark room would be designed in
the cottage.
Assisting Miss Brichan on the
committee are Margaret VanEss,
'41, and Ruth Allen, '41. 1

Annual Affair
To Inaugurate
1940 Parties
Dance Theme To Feature
New Year Predictions
With Zodiacal Symbols
"Capricorn Capers" will be the new
name for the annual "Come Across"
dance to be given by the Dormitory
Board of Assembly Saturday, Jan. 6,
the central committee for the dance
decided last night.'
As Capricorn Capers will be the
first big dance of the new year, the
committee felt a new name would
better express its purpose than the
former title "Assembly Come Across,"
Victoria Gellatly, '41, general chair-
man, announced yesterday.
Zodiac Signs Featured
The theme of the dance will be an
interpretation of the new year ac-
cording to zodiacal predictions. The
12 symbols of the zodiac will be fea-
tured prominently in the decorations,
and fortune readings will be one of
the main features.
Featuring a color scheme of silver,
black, and red, the zodiacal theme
will be developed by a magic carpet
and various booths for fortune tellers,
crystal gazers, and palm readers. At
the Capricorn Capers, Miss Gellatly
stated, one will be able to start the
new year right and to know what is
in store during the year.
There will be a mass meeting for all
those independent women interested
in working on committees for the
dance at 4:30 p.m. Thursday in the
League ballroom.
Committees Not Yet Completed
However, all those women interest-
ed in the decoration and publicity
committees should sign up early
Monday in the Undergraduate Offic
of the League, or contact Betty Lou
Witters, '42, decorations chairman
or June de Cordova, publicity chair-
man, as soon as possible, Miss Gel-
latly urged.
The rest of the central committee
as selected by the Dormitory Board
besides Miss Gellatly, Miss Witters,
and Miss de Cordova, is as follows:
eligibility, Jean Tenofsky, '41; tick-
ets, Nora Malmros, '42; finance,
Betty Altman, '42; patrons, Betty
Ployd, '40; music, Jean Hubbard
'42 and merit, Jean Gant, '41.
