to women, was provided for by a
bequest of Mrs. Laurel Harper
Seeley, who died here last March.
Mrs. Seeley was an Ann Ar-
bor resident from 1902 until her
death and was active in further-
ing various women's organiza-
tions. She was on the Board for
the Cheever Residence Hall and
an honorary member of the
American Association of Uni-
versity Women.

and other smaller awards which
were included in the bequest, are
decided by a Committee of Alum-
nae, consisting of representatives
of the Council and of the Office of
the Dean of Women.

Now that the busy days of rush-
ing are quickly coming to an end,
general chairmen of the Student-
Faculty Hours are preparing for
their first meeting to be held at
4 p.m., March 3 in the Grand Rap-
ids Room of the League.
The purpose of these gather-
ings, according to Helen Smith,
co-chairman of the teas, is, "To
promote more casual and infor-
mal relations between the faculty
and students than can be ob-
tained in the classroom." The idea
seems to be a sound one.
Cokes and potato chips, not tea,
are served over red-checkered ta-
blecloths at 4 p.m. each Thursday
afternoon in the League. A differ-
ent department is honored each
week and all students are eligible
and invited to come.
TIE HOUR is filled with ping-
pong, bridge, watching the tele-
vision set and many varied, help-
ful and fascinating conversations.
Co-chairmen of the central
committee are Helen Smith and
Jean Hleidgen; Barbara Barker
and Thelma Williams are pub-
licity chairmen; Ginny Walpole
and Lynn Streeper are in charge
of refreshments; Justine Bess-
main and Billie Per'kins take
care of the invitations and Sue

Maurice A. Melford, stpne-like
sculpture of simplified design is
being made available to everyone.
Melford's brainchild is devised to
put sculpture on the American
cian art, he would like to see more
of his statuettes in modern homes.
So would everyone. But the rub is
the high cost of months and
months of chipping on a chunk of
granite. The very nature of sculp-

tough for a genius to fill his bread-
basket and still enjoy his. art.
Thirty years ago Italian ven-
dors carried wicker baskets filled
with plaster statues and peddled
them from door to door. In that
day most homes proudly exhib-
ited a sentimental piece of art.
But the plaster statues were
easily damaged. The paint
chipped. Broken parts were some-
times used as chalk by children
for marking out sidewalk games.
THE PLASTER statue's real-
istic design has long since passed
out of vogue.
Art lovers, who have long-
ingly looked but not touched,
now can own lasting pieces of
art. New works are in keeping
with modern architecture and
industrial design. Modern sculp-
tors base their figures on nat-
ural forms, but with original in-

Pajamas Aid
Insanity Help for
There is a special type of man
iac who invents pajamas.
He varies from the hat designer
and the mad tie designer in that
le not only creates make believe
nightmares, but he aids in the
nightmare itself. No, it isn't every-
one who can design a truly gaudy
and horrible pair of pi's. It takes
a wealth of background.
Take those yellow silk ones, col-
ored with orange balls and green
dashes here and yon. Take them,
is right, for no one else would
want them. The man who thought
up this creation had, no doubt,
formerly worked for the city in
the capacity of garbage collector.
THE RICII AND true tones of
orange peels, banana skins, lettuce;
leaves, and a rare tin can or two
show this to be true.
Then there is that original
pair in red, white, and blue. Pa-
triotism is a lovely thing, but
not when mixed up with sleep.
One is apt to find one's self
standing upright in the middle
of the night and singing "God
Bless America" at the top of
one's lungs. This designer must
have been a flag pole sitter in
his youth.
Some people might actually pre-
fer the baby blue butcher boy pair
with its gentle little polka dots.
They may find that they are a
soothing comfort.

one's eyes to send one off to
dreamland. The psychology in this
lies in the fact that one gets dizzy
from seeing all those nasty little
specks swarming around.
Not only are pajama makers
maniacs, but they must also
have no sense of the fitness of
things. They make delightful
filmy (and completely tantaliz-
ing) honeymoon creations, and
then shove them off on some
unsuspecting aunt.
