ays that students here
re work to do outside
those in Iceland.
in Iceland, he com-
uires academic free-
a sudden' in trans-
gan tradition to have
air styled by our
-classmen about us.
A graduate student in chemical
engineering, he commends the fre-
quent quizzing here because it
forces a student to be up-to-date
in his studies.
Kristinsson attended the Uni-
versity of Iceland for one year and
then transferred to MIT where he
received his BS in 1951.
Iceland's University, like all
schools there, is government owned
and supported, Kristinsson said.
Plans' To Return
He worked for a paint manu-
facturing company until coming
here this fall with his wife and
two sons and plans to return to
the same company after receiving
his masters degree next spring.
Kristinssoncommented that Ice-
landic students who wish to enter
the university must take six years'
of Danish, five of English, four ,of
German, and three of French.
Iceland has been greatly under
the influence of the Americans
since American troops were there
during World War II, he remarked.
He pointed out music and movies
as especially noticeable examples.
He is living with his family at
the Saline Valley Farms.
Add Rug, Cafe Curtains;
Cheery Theme Chases
Dullness from Living
By NANCY VERMULLEN
Dorm rooms can be deadly-or
A little elbow grease and a lot
of imagination can work wonders
on those four "colorless-colored"
walls. Why not hide a scratched
desk surface with, a pretty scarf?
Or a worn chair with a bright
cushion? Throw pillows, cafe cur-
tains, canvas-bottom chairs, mu-
seum prints-Clever (and inexpen-
sive!) ways of adding life to your
room are endless
Go 'All Out'
If you want to go "all out" on
your decorating kick, choose a
main theme and plan everything
around it. One girl we know chose
an Oriental mood for her room,
and made it a unique place to live
with the help of black and gold
lacquer, kites, coolie hats 'and
Oriental-patterned spreads and
drapes carried the theme still fur-
ther. A low table was made by
hinging two supporting boards to
the underside of a top one; then
painted with red Chinese lacquer.
Final touch: Japanese water-color
prints on the wall.
Coeds from New England might
enjoy recapturing the "folksy"
atmosphere of their home. Try a
calico spread on the bed; a hooked
rug on the floor. Substitute
wrought iron kitchen utensils for
ash trays, and for that "extra"
chair, why not a high stool from
the hardware store?
Do It Yourself,
If you are a "do-it-yourself-er,"
why not make your own shelves by
attaching knotted ropes to the
moulding? Notch and paint the
boards, then rest them on the
knots-it is as simple as that!'
For lazy coeds who like to study
in bed, a foam-rubber bench cush-
ion is easily transformed into a
back rest. String the cushion on
ribbons and brass hoops, and then
attach to molding with picture
hooks and bows.
If your room has beige walls
and you prefer red,, donot upset
your housemother by getting out
your paint brush. An easier way
of achieving the bright color you
want is to buy a long, wide strip
of solid-colored paper and attach
it to the molding. For more fun,
paste up cutouts and snapshots.
Take a French Tip
Everyone has a bulletin board,
so why not take a tip from the
French and make yours individ-
ual? The French tack ribbon tight-
ly at the edges of the board to
make a criss cross of ribbons; then
they slip things under the ribbon,
rather than tacking them to the
The college room Is a bedroom,
dining room, beauty parlor, smok-
ing lounge and study hall all in
one, so do you not owe it to your-
self to make it as liveably-attrac-
tive as possible? Do not be dis-
couraged if you have never thought
of yourself as the creative type--
Just remember that it takes only
a jiffy to change the word "home-
ly" to 'homey!"
