BALI HAI THEY CALL YOU,
Alice Lloyd Dormitory Slates.
Traditional Semi-formal Ball

For the first time since the oc-
cupancy of Alice Lloyd Hall, the
new women's dormitory will hold
its spring semi-formal dance,
from 9 to 12 p.m. May 19.
The spring ball was started as
a tradition for the residence last
year before the entire dormitory
was completed.
"Bali Hai," theme of this event,
will feature the music of Frank
Tinker and his orchestra who will
wear colored shirts appropriate to
the occasion.
SCENES FROM Hawaii will be
reproduced in every lounge and
hallway to be occupied that eve-
ning. Bamboo poles and a tropi-
cal garden will decorate the main
lobby when guests arrive for the
gala affair. Coconut faces will
peer from nooks and corners of
the entrance way while crepe
paper flowers dangle from trail-
ing vines.
Of the two lounges used for
dancing, the general lounge will
follow an underwater theme.
Deep sea fishes and plants will
swarm over one wall and as
dancers look upward they will
seem to see the surface of the
water as viewed from the ocean
floor. This effect will be given
by dangling blue celophane cov-
ering the ceiling.
Fish nets will drape the arches
and "Bali Hai," printed in paper
flowers will reside over the band
stand.

DANCERS in the Hinsdale
lounge across the hall will view
a volcano about to erupt and
climbing vines will cover the walls.
The hard-working decora-
tions committee plans to dupli-
cate an equatorial jungle along
the walls of the dorm-length
hall way between the two danc-
ers' lounges. Balinesian silhou-
ettes will dance through the
jungle maze of bamboo poles,
vines and masses of flowers.
Dominating the whole scene
will be a Hawaiian sunset, painted
in red and gold colors.

Fashion Writer Gives
Rules, Posing Advice
For Camera Models
Most people are convinced that
they "don't take a good picture,"
but it is actually easy to have
your pictures flattering, natural
ones that will be as undated five
years from now as they are today,
says Selma Robinson, fashion
writer. She tells what to do and
what not to do in front of a cam-
era:
"The camera can be a flatterer,
a libeler, a gay deceiver, all de-
pending upon what you bring to
it.
"It's cold comfort, for instance,
to realize that nobody in the
world could possibly look as bad
as a passport photo. Or to go to
the other extreme and observe
t h e over-glamorized, over-re-
touched portrait that erases char-
acter along with wrinkles. Or to
feast your eyes on a stunning new
costume - is it the dress or the
girl you see?
"Your portrait should be un-
dated and a little flattering. It
ought to be you at the moment
when you look your best and
someone has just told you so.
"There are a few simple rules
to make the camera your friend:
First, get a good night's sleep.
Don't use much make-up. Don't
let your hairdresser change your
simple, becoming hairdo to some-
thing stiff and strange.
"Wear simple, ageless clothes,
like a sweater or drape. When
you are before the camera think
of something pleasant. Look down
until the photographer is ready,
then look up naturally t& avoid
a hard stare.
"Retouching and trick lighting
are fine in the hands of an expert,
but if your are in doubt there's
