Last night's intramural coed

Erminie Crockett, Martha Cook,
last year's individual winner,

Add Touches
To Wardrobes
In the days of yore, a woman
smoker was condemned to using
giant sized kitchen matches or else
stealing her husband's far from
dainty lighter, but society is now
smiling on the scene and today's
coed may sport her own fashion-
able flint.
Nowadays lighters come in any
variety of shapes, sizes and shades.
Currently popular are the gold
and silver plated variety embel-
lished with engraving or else per-
fectly plain.
For the more sportsman type
of woman, a leather covered light-
er may prove to be useful. Most
outdoor women also prefer a light-
er which features a protective
shield from the wind.
As for the size an shape of a
lighter, there seems to be no limit.
Currently topping the fad list are
the minature varieties.
Now that milady no longer has
to sneak a smoke in hidden quar-
ters, she is completely on her own
in adopting lighters and cases to
suit her own fashion needs.

Will Present
Bad Luck Ball
Ignoring the traditional belief
in Friday the 13th bad luck,
Martha Cook plans to prove its
fallacy at their "Superstitious
Sock Hop" Friday night.
Open umbrellas, ladders by each
door, crossed knives and forks,
eight balls and spilled salt will
provide a maze of bad luck sym-
bols for Martha Cook coeds and
their dates to test.
Each couple will dress up their
socks with ribbons, trinkets and
clever designs and compete in a
contest to crown a king and queen
having the most original socks. All
shoes will be checked in the cloak-
room before entering the Blue
Room where the dance will be
The dancers will also welcome
seven years of bad luck when they
attempt to shatter a large mirror
by tossing pennies at it.
In addition to record dancing,
a caller will be on hand for square
Adele Hager will sing and dem-
onstrate her talent with a ukelele
for the intermission entertain-
Programs with a three cigarette
and one match design will be given
to each couple. Cider and dough-
nuts will be served.

Start Activities
WAA Will Resume
Co-Recreational Club
The co-recreational WAA Bal-
let Club will resume activities for
this year at 7 p.m. Monday at the
Barbour Gym Dance Studio.
The club is open to all interested
men and women, beginners or in-
Its aim is to better understand-
ing and appreciation of ballet and
to give members a chance to im-
prove their technique.
In general, it will offer begin-
ners technique classes stressing
bar work, adagio, and floor work.
Intermediates will have a chance
to try their skill at chireography.
Last year the Ballet Club pre-
sented two concerts in conjunc-
with the Modern Dnce Club. The
first of these was a demonstration
in which club members presented
a short ballet based on a skating
theme. In the spring the Modern
Dance Club and Ballet Club par-
ticipated in the Inter Arts Dance
In addition to the two perform-
ances planned for this year are
being made for club members to
study various kinds of folk and
national dances. Also, it has been
suggested that club members
might enjoy studying older forms
of dance such as those performed
during the Renaissance and later
periods in European history.
All those who are interested
are invited to come to the organ-

RainsBring Fashion Change

raincoats currently appearing on
the market which may be quickly
converted to suit either the clouds
or sunshine.
Corduroy and gabardine have
been converted to materials which
may be worn in storm or sun.
Bright colors also seem to rule the
day as may be .witnessed by the
mass campus invasion of bright
reds, blues and plaids.
Books, which always seem to
develop a tendency to run when
subjected to a few drops of dew,
have been adapted to a classy
change-over. This consists of plas-
tic bags which may be purchased
at bookstores. Other more clever
minds, though, have adapted
cleaner's bags into a bad weather
The current campus woman
may undergo a complete conver-
sion when rain clouds threaten,
but when she gets inside the dryer
quarters she is almost bound to
look none the worse for the wear,

AQUATIC COEDS-Nancy Hilton, Marianne Kull, Nancy Wat-
kins, and Jacqueline Priebe were among the 250 participants who
took to the water in last night's all-campus women's swimming
meet. The meet was co-sponsored by the Women's Athletic As-
sociation and the Women's Physical Education Department. The
intermission program was furnished by two members of the WAA
Michifish Club, Janet Dewey and Priscilla Ball. They performed
a water ballet to the tune of "Peg of My Heart." Their well-timed
precision swimming was a -pleasant diversion from the excite-
ment of the various events and also gave swimmers a chance to
relax before their next event.

Home permanents have certain
advantages, especially for the col-
lege woman, not the least of which
is the fact that they can be given
any time, day or night, without
waiting for beauty shop appoint-
Manufacturers of home perma-
nent kits work out accompanying
instruction booklets carefully.
Their first "do" for a successful
permanent is: follow these in-
structions to the letter. Attempts
to improve on them can end in
coiffure catastrophes.
* * *
makers of home permanent kits
offer is that it is best to cut and
shape the hair before waving it.
This makes the wave prettier and
more manageable, and trimming
off the ends of an old permanent
before applying a new wave is
better for the hair.
Strenuous scalp massage im-
mediately before a permanent
should be avoided because it
increases the possibility of scalp
irritation, the experts warn.
Oil conditioners and shampoos
with oil bases, contrary to a mis-
taken popular notion, should not
be used just prior to a permanent,
the manufacturers say. Oil film
on the hair hinders the action of
the waving lotion.
* * *
avoided immediately before a
permanent also, because they are
apt to leave a film of insoluble
deposit on the hair which retards
the action of the waving lotion. A
creme-type synthetic detergent
shampoo is recommended by home
permanent authorities.
An excessively oily scalp may
require three light sudsings. To
complete the pre-permanent
shampoo, the hair should be
rinsed thoroughly with clear
water, not with a special rinse
such as lemon or vinegar.
Manufacturers warn against the
use of metal curlers or bobby pins

when giving a home permanent.'
The metal reacts with the waving
lotion. Metal bowls for the lotion
or neutralizer are taboo for the
same reason.
* * *
CAREFUL blocking and wind-
ing of curls contribute greatly to
the success of a home permanent,
according to the manufacturers.
Winding too much hair on a
curler may prevent the waving
lotion from penetrating the hair.
Twisting or stretching the
hair when winding it on the
curlers produces uneven curls.
In the winding process a room-
mate may come in handy as an
Beauty experts agree that the
timing of the wave is the most im-
portant factor in successful wav-
ing. One permanent kit includes a
timing device which eliminates
* * *
TEST CURLS should be taken
each time a permanent is given.
Hair changes from time to time
due to various factors such as
weather, shampoo, systematic re-
actionsrand preparations used on
the hair.
Processing times are based on
average indoor conditions. Man-
ufacturers say that artificial
temperatures of any kind will
tend to alter the action of the
waving lotion.
Therefore they advise against
using a hair dryer or sitting in the

sun or near a stove while the hair
is processing.
A thorough job of neutralizing
is what makes the wave perma-
nent. It is important therefore to
be especially careful in following
instructions at this point.
It is best, the - experts advise,
not to do any vigorous brushing
or shampooing until a new perma-
nent is about a week old.
