Freshmen Get the Neck of the Chicken
WHAT'S IN A LEAF?-Elaine Lueck, '51, and Don Ennis, '51,
ponder the question as they seek a significant interpretation of
the ordinary. As part of a Fine Arts I exercise, they will incor-
porate the leaf design in an overall pattern. The course, initi-
ated on campus this semester, attempts to "create expression" in
students without a background in art. The course is open to all
students except those in the architecture school.

HORDES OF IRATE upper-
classmen crashed through a
locked door to capture and sub-
jugate a lonely freshman at Cor-
nell. In the ensuing melee, the
victim received a partial head
shave and a cut lip, the Cornell

Needless to say, the assailants
turned out to be sophomores.

The course is designed to offer
the student who has had no for-

elementary steps in creating works
of art. Education, lit school, Bus.
Ad. students-any school except

Among the problems students
have worked on are those dealing

According to Prof. J. D. Pren-
dergast, who, together with Prof.
Gerome Kamrowski, is in charge
of the studios, the students were
encouraged to take these subjects
and put them in another form.
They were encouraged to use these
materials to express themselves.
In her project, Anita Saidel, '50,
interpreted the pin-up girl poet-
ically. She arranged the parts of
the girl's body in a loose, dis-
jointed mass, noteworthy for its
artistic and rhythmic flow.
Mrs. Elain Lueck, '51, filled in
an outline of a pin-up girl with
picturesof waraatrocities. She felt
the girl symbolized the beauty in

Miss Smith, and Mrs. Loy who
are education majors said that
they were sure the course would
help them in their primary school

ing will always be useful," Miss
All the students agreed that the
course has succeeded in stimulat-
ing their interest in the arts.
And Prof. Prendergast said that
the course is very exciting to
teach. Students are so alert and
quick because they do not have
preconceived ideas. So they can
take a stimulus and work it but
are not dependent on teaching,
The purpose of the course, he
said, is to create expression in
the students. "People who are
creative areamade active, and ac-

The course, besides stimulating
an interest in art, has also en-
couraged the students to attend

"However, an appreciation of
Stan Kenton by classic lovers is
as important as one of Horowitz
for the be-boppers."
Extremely pleased with the re-
sults so far, Prof. Prendergast said
he hoped there would soon be
openings for more students.
