Extra-Curricular Activities

Senate Meets;
Views Ideas-
On Curfew
By NANCY VERMULLEN
Womens' hours and publicity
for League elections were the
main topics at yesterday's Senate
meeting.
Carol Sparkie, taking League
President Sue Arnold's place, ask-
ed for suggestions, concerning'
publicity for the League elections.
Poster campaigning literature in
individual rooms was discussed, as
was posting the information on
floor bulletin boards. Others
thought distributing pamphlets to
students would be more effective.
Running the candidates' plat-
forms in The Daily was suggested
as a fourth alternative for publi-
cizing the election, but a floor
vote decided that distributing
pamphlets on the basis of indi-
vidual rooms would be the most
effective procedure.
Carol Sparkle brought up the
question of women's hours, stating
that many students feel there are
not enough late pers and would
like to see a new system intro-
duced on campus. There is also
a conflict between university func-
tions and individual house func-
tions being held the same night.
The present system of women's
hours consists of a 12:30 a.m.
deadline on Friday and Saturday
nights, with 1:30 a.m. permission
granted for special events. The
Calendar Committee would like
to see the late per system done
away with completely, with 1 a.m.
as the deadline every Friday and
Saturday.
Lynn Allie of Women's Judic ex-
pressed the feelings of Judic by
remaining neutral to the proposed
1 a.m. per, while Panhel and As-
sembly both expressed their ap-
proval of it.

FLOWER SAVER - With Christmas formal dances soon ap-
pearing on the holiday scene, here's a handy tip on how to keep
corsages and boutonnieres fresh longer. Wrap a piece of dam-
pened cotton around the stem of the flower and then wind cello-
phane tape around the cotton. To give a more professional look
to the stem, use dark green tape to hold in the moisture. Flowers
stay fresh longer.
Symphony Band Will Tour Cities

Despite the briefer cultural
heritage of Americans, Professor
Marvin J. Eisenberg, of the Uni-
versity of Michigan Fine Arts De-
partment, believes that the gen-
eral American public is better in-
formed and will accept new art
forms more readily than the Euro-
pean public.
He stresses the importance of
the effect of the mass media such
as journalism, television, and
periodical -literature, in bringing
about a greater awareness. How-
ever, he also said the publics are
alike in both Europe and America
in that they are so often 'victims
of fads, advertising, and tricks as.
readers of mainly popular, mass-
distributed literature."
An example of a praiseworthy
influence can be found in the av-
erage American home, with its
advanced trends in furniture and
appliance design, said Professor
Eisenberg,
Warns Against Inconsistencies
He warned, however, against the
"mass of inconsistencies within
the variety of tastes and trends
in which the public can be
caught."
Another major influence in pro-
moting artistic understanding is
the museum education depart-
ments, points out Professor Eisen-
berg. "They are doing a great
deal to appeal to the layman and
have made great advances recent-
ly. In Europe," he remarked,
"there is nothing comparable to
this trend." These active museum
programs have played an impor-
tant part in encouraging artists,
he said.
A third factor brought up by
Professor Eisenberg is the great-
er spread of the artistic centers in

lrl 1 u .u v . 11x1a V , 111
center is essentially Paris; in Italy,
essentially Rome, Florence, and
Milan; but in America, it is not
only New York, but also such cities
as Dallas, Los Angeles, Chicago,
and Seattle, although New York
is, of course, dominant."
More Original Contributions
As a result of a well-informed
and ever more interested Ameri-
can public, Professor Eisenberg
said there have been "more ori-
ginal contributions lately," as
compared to previous years, and
"not as much dependence on the
artistic traditions of Paris and
Rome."
These contributions have been
especially important in the realm
of architecture and applied de-
sign, as evidenced by Professor
Eisenberg's remark that "there
is no more influential individual
than Frank Lloyd Wright" on the
world architectural scene.
Concerning the types and qua-
lity of these contributions, he said
"the arts, both in Europe and Am-
erica, must be divided between
those artists who are pursuing
their personal search for expres-
sion and those seeking more im-
mediate applications to everyday
use in the applied realm."
WAA Tournament
Women's basketball tourna-
ment will continue at 5:10 p.m.
today with Alpha Xi Delta
playing against Alpha Gamma
Delta and Gamma Phi Beta
challenging Alpha Omicron Pi.
At 7:10 p.m. tonight Kappa
Delta II plays Newberry II and
Stockwell challenges Tyler II.

MEDIA ROLE CITED:
America Seen Artistically Alert

Of American commercialistic
tendencies, he said there is more,
than in Europe, but only because
the greater amount of mass me-
dia cause the artist to create im-
ages whose first purposes are
sales and appeal.
The centuries of leadership by
France in the art field is attri-
buted by Professor Eisenberg to
the "constant patronage of the
artist. No other country," he con-
tinued; "has had such continuity
of patronage as France since the
17th century."
"The sense of the past and of
the history," alsosaccounts for an
artistic awareness, "especially in
Italy, more than any other Euro-
pean country." Proressor Eisen-
berg also said that "there is a re-
alization that the past is a part
of the present, even though often
to the detriment of progress and
change."

Recognized by her Harvard
book bag and saddle shoes, Asso-
ciate Astronomy Professor Hazel
Losh is a familiar figure around
campus.
With an uncanny memory for
names and faces, she manages the
fantastic achievement of knowing
all the pupils in her large lec-
tures in a matter of several weeks.
"A boy in my class practically
fell over when I asked him where
he was this morning," said Prof.
Losh of the student whom she had
seen only once, in her lecture of
275 people. Her well-known talent
"just comes" to her.
Prof. Losh undertook her career,
f so unusual for a woman, simply
because she has always been inter-
ested in "star gazing".
Active in extra-curricular acti-
vities, Prof. Losh is senior advisor
to Mortarboard, senior woman's
honor society, and was chosen an
honorary member last spring. She
has been secretary-treasurer of
