"The raw material, the energy,

borah Bacon, referring to the at-
mosphere prevailing at the Uni-
She has studied in Paris at the
Sorbonne, in England at Oxford
and received her Ph.D in English
at Columbia University. She feels
that the atmosphere here at the
University is one of "extreme vi-
tality and energy."
LARGER CITIES with which
Columbia, Oxford and the Sor-
bonne are associated, she believes,
are so filled with their own vitality
that it is difficult for the students
to retain their identity.
Before assuming the position
of Dean of Women at the Uni-
versity, Miss Bacon spent a year
in Alaska as a missionary nurse.
For three and a half years she
served in the army nurse corps
with a unit attached to an evacua-
tion hospital of the Third Army.
This unit landed at Omaha Beach
and continued its service through-
out France, Germany and Czecho-

universities," she explained.

A CRITICISM, not against the
students or the University, but
against our form of democracy to-
day was voiced by Dean Bacon in
reference to the recent Student
Legislature election.
She believes that the students
reflected the culture about them
when upon tabulation the final
number of votes east were en-
tirely out of proportion with the
"noise" issued before the elec-
"I believe that 'you can't fool
all of the people all of the time',"
she said. "Supply and demand will
equal itself," and she hopes that
sometime the active interest the

rest of the year will equal the pre-
voting noise.
Dean Bacon has no definite
plans for thefuture. "I would much
rather wait and see and fit my-
self into the powerful background,
rather than try to move the back-
ground." But she is not averse to
taking a strong stand on some-
thing she believes in.
"Strong stands should be taken
rarely and wisely," she warns and
only after one knows when and
where he is going and what the
meaning of the place is.
Natural Look Stressed
Contrary to the much publicized
"doe-eyed look, fashion experts
still advocate the soft, natural
look for eye make-up.
They say to use very little make
up; heavy penciling is just for
photography or the stage. A slight
pencil touch is desired for em-
phasis, however.
