Women To Greet New Holder
For Cosmetics, Bobby Pins

"Bathkets" is the new lisp-in-
spiring novelty cosmetic item
which an enterprising former co-
ed at Indiana University has com-
mercialized into a growing busi-
"Bathkets" are the invention of
Barbara Holder, who originally
obtained her idea from a grand-
mother - to - mother - to - daugh-
ter tradition in her own family.
JUST BEFORE Miss Holder left
home to enter college, her mother
made her a little plastic cloth-lin-
ed wicker basket, with pockets
and flaps to hold all her toilet
articles. It was much the same as
Mrs. Holder's own mother had
made her when she went to nurs-
ing schpol.,
It didn't take the other 'girls
in the dorm long to notice that
while they ran to and from the
showers dropping bobby pins
and spilling their powder, Miss
Holder carried all her toilet
necessities ,neatly arrayed in
the pretty ruffled wicker basket.
So many of the girls asked her

Of all the "boards" on campus,
from the Board of Regents to
Mortarboard, the Senior Board is
the one most closely associated
with interests peculiar to the sen-
ior class.
The Senior Board, made up of
senior class officers and committee
chairmen, numbers among its re-
sponsibilities such things as cap
and gown arrangements, gradua-
tion announcements, collection of
class dues, Senior Ball, class reun-
ions and the senior gift to the Uni-
With such a varied number of
responsibilities resting }on its
shoulders, the Board meets from
time to time throughout the school
t year.
The four class officers on the
Board ,re elected by members of
the senior class. This year's of fi-
cers are: Charles Murray, presi-
dent; Jack Arbuckle, vice-presi-
' dent; Patricia McLean, secretary
and Dave Belin, treasurer.
Chairman of the five committees
are selected by the officers on the
basis of petitions and interviews.
Chairmen for the class of '51
are: Carol Schumacher, announce-
ments; Joan Willens, caps and
gowns; Wally Shapero and Maxine
Ryckman, publicity; John Donald-
son and Mary Martin, reunions;
Jean Heidgen, finance and George
Milroy and Valerie Lemper, special
These chairmen and co-chair-
men are assisted by a number of
committee members'.

where they could buy one, that she
once kidded her mother: ' 'You
should go into business."
IT WAS A few years later how-
ever, before Miss Holder and a
sorority sister, Mrs. Robert Lee;
decided to commercialize the
bath basket.
With a 75-cent initial invest-
ment, they bought wicker bas-
kets and part of a plastic
shower curtain to start experi-
menting. Then they branched
out and added a shower cp that
matched the liner.
They tried them out on their
sorority sisters and found them-
selves swamped with orders for
many more than they could man-
ufacture on their rented sewing
machine. The idea caught on
among the other coeds, and the
two girls soon had over 300 or-
ders for their "bathkets."
dies Miss Holder visited depart-
ment stores in cities near the col-
lege. When they showed interest
in the bath kits, she signed a con-
tract with a firm to make the plas-
tic cases and shower caps.
The "bathkets" are now be-
ing sold in major department
stores in over 70 cities in the
U.S. and in half as many col-
leges and universities. A local
Ann Arbor store is now featur-
ing "Bathkets."
"Bathkets" are designed es-
pecially for girls who share a
bathroom, or who live in rather
crowded quarters, and for people
who just like to be neat! So that
makes them perfect for the col-
lege coed.
Another use for the "bathket"
is as a waterproof pouch for a
suitcase. The ribbons untiefrom
around the handles of the basket
making this possible.
Every woman ,can make her
own organization as to what she
wants to put in each of the
pouches of the "bathket" accord-
ing to her own needs and tastes.
New Fashions
To Help Solve
As coeds' thoughts turn to sew-
ing summer dresses they are faced
with the problem of choosing a
pattern which emphasizes their
good points and conceals their
not-so-good features.
To help solve this problem the
editors of a national magazine
have assembled a number of
styles to suit different kinds of
faces and features.
If one wants to belittle her hips
the editors suggest a one-piece
dress with a flared peplum and a7
skirt that is straight in the front,
flaring at center back.
To emphasize a tiny waist two
flanges that run from shoulder to
belt and a full skirt that is
gathered all around are recom-
The slim figure calls for a fake
bolero in a solid color contrasting
with the color of the dress beneath,
and then to slim a full figure, it is
best to wear a coat dress with a
narrow horseshoe collar.1
Those with good figures may
wear slim, dramatic dresses of
worsted doeskin with velveteen re-I
vers and pocket flaps in a newk
stole effect.
