University women deserve ad-
vance warning that it always pays
to look their best, in the dorm
lunch-line, in classes and even
walking across campus.
Special Publications' men might
be looking them over, and nice
looking girls are the ones they pick
to adorn the pages of the innum-
erable pamphlets and booklets
which they publish to give pros-
pective students a good look at the
DICK HUFF and Fred Mon-
crieff are the two "pub-men" on
whom the load of picking photo-
genic models falls. They station
themselves at strategic spots and
look over the campus crop of wo-
men. Then, a secretary takes over
to make the approach and ask the
prospective model if she'd like to
pose. "It's a little easier for a
strange woman than for a strange
man to make an advance," Mon-
Right now, Special Publica-
tions is preparing a booklet on
dormitory housing, to show
available facilities to interested
students. During the past week,
Huff and Montcrieff have been
on the lookout for models.
Photogenicdwomen get their
* names recorded and when a Pic-.
ture is scheduled, they are con-
tacted and asked to pose. This is.
just a small part of the job of the
publications bureau, however.
BEFORE preparing a booklet,;
editor Alice Beeman obtains from
the department sponsoring the
publication a written record- of
what they want included. This is
adapted to a "saleable" vein, and
the art editor, Huff, begins to
lay-out the booklet and approxi-
After interminable intervals of
discussion between the sponsor
and the editors, final plans are1
laid for the publication and it
goes to press.
In addition to informative book-
lets, Special Publications puts out
a "house-organ" for the faculty,]
which tells what's going on in the
Administrative circles, the finan-
cial report and a monthly letter
to high school principals.

One of Prescott's major prob-
lems was getting the large candles
they wanted. As those proved too
expensive to buy, they were final-
drai pusu and caroard cyln-
ders. The cylinders come from lin-
oleum rolls and were donated by a
local hardware store.
When plans to secure tile blocks
from the Angell Hall construction
area were thwarted by an observ-
ant watchman, the men decided
to use painted pie tins as the bases
for their candles.

CONDUCTED as an informal
discussion, the conference makes
no attempt at passing resolutions
and does not go on record as ad-
vocating a particular reform.
Its chief purpose is to bring
together a representative cross-
section of students, administra-
tion and faculty so that mutual
problems can be openly and
frankly discussed, according to
James Robertson, Assistant Dean
of the literary college.
"Which does not mean that
nothing ever results from these
meetings," Dean Robertson added.
"Changes in the counseling ser-
vices among other things recom-
mended by the conferences have
been instituted in the college and
teachers have been influenced by
student opinion expressed there,"
After the meeting is over, a sub-
committee will be organized from
among students present which will
draw up a report of the general
trends of discussion.
The report will later be present-
ed to the college for consideration
