ORIGINATED in 1927 with a
circus theme, the Cab presented
a varied program of amusements
consisting of a floorshow, dance,
games and refreshments.
Following the "Bun ling Bro-
thers' Circus" of 1937, varying
motifs such as a music box,
Christmas celebration, trip to
the far flung planets and this
year's visit with Shakespeare
have been used.
Under the supervision of Bar-
bara Arter, the decorations com-
mittee has been planning the
transformation of a twentieth
century League into an atmos-
phere fitting for Shakespeare and
his company.
TED SMITH and his orchestra
will provide the musical back-
ground for dancing in the main
ballroom, and special booths and
refreshment stands will be set
up in the concourse and other
second floor rooms.
The floorshow, under the di-
rection of Lois Eisele, has been
hard at work perfecting its
dance routines and diramatic
parts so as to present a true
interpretation of the Univer-'
s i t y 's ancient counterpart
Tickets for the Cabaret will go
on sale Wednesday at the League,

the floorshow, two each night of
the Cab, there will be tickets of
four different colors sold.
The tickets will serve for en-

and the stubs will be used for the
floorshow, one color for each per-

SweetScents Convey Suggestions of Gaiety, Exotic Places

A Scottish atmosphere will pre-
vail on campus and in classrooms
next week when ye bonny Univer-
sity lads and lassies will be wear-
ing an array of plaid shirts, dress-
es, skirts and scarves.
Designating Nov. 21 to Dec. 3
as "Plaid Shirt Week," the fores-
try school plans to get students in
the mood for its Paul Bunyan
"Formal," Saturday, Dec. 3, when
jeans and plaid shirts will replace
tuxes, tails and the usual formal
The forestry school, faculty
members included, will appear en
masse in plaids next week. Any
forestry student who is caught
wearing the usual sweater or solid
colored shirt will be properly pun-
ished with a royal diag lynching.
COMEPTITION will also reign
among the rest of the campus as
to who can display the loudest
and most unusual plaids.
"There is an unlimited num-
ber of possibilities for plaid
dress," said Dick McArdle, pub-
licity chairman for the Paul
Bunyan "F o r m a l". "Shirts,
dresses, scarves, socks, ribbons,
coat and bookcovers are among
the ideas which students can
use," he added.
A wood cutting contest will al-
so be held on the diag next week

Those who followed the wedding
of Aly Khan and Rita Hayworth
no doubt noticed the report that
hundreds, perhaps thousands, of
gallons of perfume were used in
the swimming pools to provide a
fragrant atmosphere for the fam-
ed nuptials.
* The marriage attracted almost
as much attention as did that of
a British king when he abdicated
his throne to marry an American
divorcee. During the ceremony
sweet scents from the pool envel-
oped the entire town in a sea of
THIS IS reminiscent of the
courts of former times where per-
fume flowed like water from the
fountains in ancient Rome. Many
a historian has related how Nero
used more perfume at the funeral
of Poppaea than could be im-
ported from Arabia in a year.
Then too, who can forget the
fabulous reports of the "Queen
of the Nile," Cleopatra, who
made use of fragrant oils in cap-
turing the hearts of Antony and
and Caesar?
It remains an undeniable fact
that more use has been made of
perfume through the years than
of any other "aid to nature" dis-
covered since.
LAUNCHING a perfume is an
effort to put across an idea which
must suggest romance, love, youth,
tradition, moods of gaiety, events
of the bygone fashions, music and
artistic or exotic places.
All the elements, the names,
the bottle, the label, the package
and the advertising must have

a common characteristic which
aids the scent in conveying its
The perfume character and the
name are of primary importance
in conducting the idea. Sometimes
the idea comes first, and the prob-
lem is to find a fitting name and
scent. Sometimes the search for
a name will launch the idea and
the proper perfume will have to
be selected.
* * *
OR PERHAPS the scent itself
will suggest an idea and a name,
for, in this case, the perfume is
already an expression of an idea
born in the artist-perfumer's im-
As in every art, artists who
are able to combine the origi-
nality of their idea with the
perfection of their blend are
few. But if they are successful
they may create a style which
will become the starting point of
schools of expression.
The success of truly great per-
fume classics remains unchallen-
ged by the whims of fancy or the
fads of fashion.'
IN LAUNCHING a new perfume,
the trends of the day cannot be
ignored. They must be consid-
ered in order to determine the
types that are on the upgrade and
to make a selection that will con-
tribute to the consumer's accep-
The fragrance that is design-
ed to win popular praise must
be backed by the necessary
qualities that are the mark of
a good perfume.
No money-making scent has
enjoyed a constant popularity
through a period of years unless
it has these qualities.
* * *
AMONG THEM may be found

the heart, or basic characteristic,
of a blend. It must display a vi-
tality which other mixtures do not
have. Around this base, there must
be additional notes of a flowery,
leafy, spicy or woody character.
These elements must be
blended in such a way as to
give the odor the warmth and
life which a fragrance must
The perfume must also have an
originality which is achieved by a
substition or transposition of
skillful and daring specialities. It
is the particular aromatics used
in its creation that give a per-
fume the distinction which en-
ables it to endure in the con-
stantly changing fashion world.
* * *
blended in a harmony which shows
the outward qualities essential for
its appeal and acceptance. This
harmony must introduce the per-
fume in such a manner as to fully
condition it so that it makes a
satisfactory first impression.
Last but not least, a lastiness,
not of thesame odor for several
hours but of the fragrance's
main note, must be achieved.
This is easier to attain in heavy
scents than it is in light per-
However in today's modern age,
people want to concentrate the
maximum pleasure in the time
that circumstances allow. For this
reason, women of today's world
do not want a strong and lasting
perfume, but rather one that cre-
ates a mild illusive atmosphere.

fume basis to convey the idea,
