Union To Hold
Women Need Good Judgment
To Solve Decorating Problems
By JEAN RUSS
Many coeds today are faced with
the problem of managing a home
and, even if it is a one-room flat,
there is still the problem of deco-
ration, often on a limited budget.
The trouble with most women
who set out to decorate the fam-
ily homestead is that they try too
hard. The average hausfrau starts
out to select new furnishings in
a daze, bedazzled by pictures in
magazines and confused by con-

it fits the needs of her own family.
"PEOPLE DON'T buy a house
or furniture often enough to know
how to go about it. They get so
much advice they are dizzy," re-
ports Dan Cooper, well-known de-
signer of home furnishings.
Perhaps it would be a good
idea to keep these suggestions in
mind if ever faced with the
problem of planning a house:
Lots of parties demand a living}
room that encourages sociability,
with furniture arranged to accom-
modate groups of people; plenty
of coffee tables, serving tables,

joys reading and music will plan
in a different manner. The most
comfortable chair and the best
light will be conveniently situated
near the bookshelves for pleasant
Windows and artificial light-

best light for the piano.
No particular room will be set
aside for dining with meals served
informally in the living room or
kitchen. The extra space can be
used for a library or music room.
Common sense is more practical
than current decorator's patter in
planning a home, After all, who's

Each semester when final exam-
inations roll around, the Union

This semester the dance is being
held from 9 p.m. to midnight Sat-
urday in the Union Ballroom..
The purpose of such a gay af-
fair at such a "blue" time is to
