New Cosmetic
Stays on Lips
Chemist Undertakes
Experiment as Lark
An experiment "started as a
lark" has developed into a million-
dollar cosmetics business for Ha-
zel Bishop, a quiet New York
Using her kitchen as her labora-
tory, Miss Bishop worked night
after night for three long years
to create something that everyone
told her could not be done-a lip-
stick that would stay on until re-
moved with soap or cold cream.
"I did it because I wanted to
have something of my own in a
field where women wouldn't be
just on sufferance," Miss Bishop
During the day Miss Bishop
worked as organic chemist for an
oil company. As soon as she got
home, she would eat a sandwich
and then retire to the kitchen and
work at her experiments, until
"It doesn't take much to turn
a kitchen into a lab," Miss Bishop
said. "The gas stove is your
Bunsen burner; the double-boiler
serves as a water bath; the glass-
ware takes the place of beakers;
cupboards can hold chemicals as
well as soup cans; the refrigera-
tor is just what you need to cool
molten lipsticks; so the only
things you need to buy are a scale
and a mold, and you're really
Miss Bishop did admit that un-
der such conditions, cooking was
"a little difficult." She said that
neither she nor her mother were
inconvenienced, however.
"My family is used to me," she
explained, "I've always been going
off on experiments of some kind
or other." Miss Bishop would not
divulge what other experiments
she has worked on, beause she has
not given up hope for their suc-
cess, and does not want to inform
her competitors.
Miss Bishop started her lipstick
experiments one day when she
was tired of seeing smears on
glasses, cigarettes and napkins.

Blue Mood To Prevail Friday
As 'Little CIub' Doors Open

Blues will prevail when the "Lit-
tle Club" opens its doors to the
campus from 8:30 p.m. to midnight
Friday in the second floor dining
room of the League.
With Bob Leopold and his combo
playing such blues numbers as the
"Basin Street Blues" and "Bye Bye
Blues," patrons of the campus
nightclub will find themselves
amidst an atmosphere reminiscent'
of the Dixieland bistros.
Red and white checked table-
cloths will deck the tables, and the

finishing touch will be provided by
whiskey bottle candle holders.
Couples may also view the floor-
show which will feature a piano
duet by Nancy Alles and Jane
Ebner, who will play such long-
time favorites at "Sleepy Lagoon"
and "Cruising Down the River."
Admission for the entire evening
will be $1 per couple, but those
who prefer to go "nightclubbing"
after the early movie or sports
event will be charged 74 cents.

ROTC Riflemen To Perform at Military Ball
Exhibiting Traditional Training Maneuvers,

Long weeks of drill and practice

Gay Materials Spark
Room Redecorating
Spring is coming to the campus
as may easily be witnessed by the
boom in sales of ice cream cones
and cotton materials.
With this air of spring, painters
and upholsterers begin to make
plans for vast room redecorating
tasks, and paint brushes and sew-
ing machines once again come in-
o use.
A good idea for spring uphol-
sterers is to recover chairs and
davenports with gay spring and
summer plaids. For those who pre-
fer the sophisticated look, the
Provence plaid in vivid turquoise
and Bermuda pink provides the
To make spring bloom inside as
well as out, a lime, moss and green
combination fills the bill. A muted
cherry accented with moss green

is also exciting after a winter color

Windows should also be dressed

of which comes from the northern
part of France where the people
call them curtains "to cut the

In their American translation,
they look new and decorative when

This organization represents
the final step in military train-

ers in military training courses.
Like the Pershing Rifles, it has
a period of rushing, and new
members are chosen from the out-
standing juniors and seniors.
During "Hell Week" the pledges
of Scabbard and Blade are a fa-
miliar sight on campus with five
stars stamped ontheir foreheads
and a sword buckled to their
white-striped dngarees.
"These groups and all other
members of the ROTC units at
the University will step out in full-
dress uniform Friday night at
the Union when we present this

publicity chairman.
