Lane Hall To Sponsor Art Exhibit

The Indian art display, formal-
ly opened by President Harlan H.
Hatcher Tuesday at the Lane Hall
Library, presents a varied picture
of art patterns in India, both Pld
and new.
Open from 2 to 9 p.m. today and
tomorrow, the exhibition features
objects contributed by Indian stu-
dents and the Indian Trade Center
in New York.
Oldest of the things shown are
two paintings of the Mughal per-
iod, depicting historical scenes.
Both are estimated to be 500 years
Illustrate Trends
Prints of paintings by Kanu De-
sai and Vilvamangal illustrate
trends in contemporary art.
Several landscapes, done in In-
dia by former student Dilip Jamda,
are also included in the painting
Intricately hand-carved jewel
boxes, vases and religious figur-
ines, done in ivory, occupy a large
section of the exhibition.
Ivory Carvings
Among the religious carvings'
are delicate ivory and sandalwood
renderings of Lord Buddha, Lord
Krishna and the Goddess of
Clay portraits of Mahatma
Gandhi and Lord Buddha also
demonstrate the important reli-
gious influence on Indian art.
Hand-carving has been tradi-
tionally important and the ob-
jects "featured are illustrative of
the kind that have been produced
for centuries. A tiny seed, con-
taining ten smaller, carved ivory
elephants, demonstrates the abili-
ties of the Indian artisans.
Practical Art
Illustrating the more practical
side of artwork, the exhibition has
colorfully striped bedsheets and
tablecloths, practically all hand-
woven, and several pairs of em-
broidered Rajputana shoes.
Colorful hand-made fabrics, done
in cotton and silk, interwoven
with gold and silver thread, are
also shown, some a hundred years
Variations in architecture are
pictured by photographs of the
old sections of India and also the
more modern parts, where West-
ern ideas have been influential.

Woman E
When Dorothy Lewis says she's
up in the clouds with her job, she's
not exaggerating,
For the past eight months, pert,
blonde Miss Lewis has been work-
ing as stewardess for a national
She entered training last June,
two weeks after graduation from
the University of New Mexico. "I'd
majored in education," the slim
stewardess said, "but somehow I
didn't like the idea of such a rou-
tine job,"
Flights Always Differ
Her flying duties are far from
routine. "One flight is never the
same as another. There are al-
ways new faces, new challenges."
Airlines don't take just any ap-
plicant into their training course.
Miss Lewis described the qualifi-
cations a woman needs:

for it," she shrugged and smiled,
"it really shows."
Most of all, Miss Lewis enjoys
being able to make people happy'
and comfortable.
Helps Passengers
Many people who get on the
plane are worried, perhaps an-
noyed about something or gener-
ally in a bad mood. It's our job
to divert their minds and help
them to enjoy at least this much
of their trip.
"You have to exert yourself,"
she admits, "but the satisfaction
gained makes it really worthwhile."
Like all others, Miss Lewis' job
has its ups and downs. And the
"downs" come in the form of the
hours. She has a contract that
says she can fly an 85 hour a
month maximum. But in the
smaller print the fact is empha-
sized that these 85 hours must be
measured from when the engines
are turned on until they are turned
Gets Some Compensation
"That's why stewardess' faces
always grow longer when a plane
is delayed several hours," the vi-
vacious blonde laughed. "How-
ever, we do get some compensa-
tion for the time we spend with
our passengers when the plane is
not in actual flight," she added.
On the more attractive side of
the pay scale, Miss Lewis men-

expense money to pay hotel bills
and other extras when away from
home base.
Aside from the experience of
meeting persons from all over the
world in all walks of life, many
would-be stewardesses are attract-
ed by the traveling aspect.
Join-See the World
"In our profession the maxim
'Join-and see the world' is truly
applicable,". Miss Lewis declared.

Miss Lewis' flight run is far from

There, Alpha Delta Phi will hold their pledge formal, "Moonlight in

Taking advantage of this beautiful spring weather, Chi Phi and
Sigma Kappa will have a picnic tomorrow afternoon. Alpha Epsilon
Pi is also moving outdoors for a party in the form of a barbeque.
However, a little work by the couples attending will be expected, as
this is also. a Michigras float-building party.
Deserts of Arabia
Two members of the Four Freshmen will be at Phi Kappa Psi's
dance also being held tomorrow evening. The setting will be the
deserts of Arabia and the music will be by John Hodges and his Band.
Tau Delta Phi is planning their annual Tau Delta She party
for this weekend. The men's dates will go through Hell week, ini-
tiation, and various other rituals during the course of the evening.
However, they will have the opportunity of pulling pledge pranks. The
penalities for pulling these pranks weren't revealed though.
