Co-Eds of L. S. U.
( By Eugenie LeCoq, a Coed.) ii Twenty years ago a coed at L. S. h U. was an unheard of thing, so have z a lot of things been unheard of in a years gone by, but no one is surprised a nowadays when they hear that there h are registered at the Louisiana State University two hunded and eight c young ladies preparing themselves for E practical things in life. i The young ladies have been put on n the level with the boys and have been h allowed the privilege of choosing i what ever subjects they desire. s Many of the girls are preparing a themselves for teachers, journalists, and some are spending most of their s time in the Home Economics depart- a ment preparing themselves for domes- s tic work as well as practical. The law school is graced by two young ladies who expect to make 0 successful lawyers, and all chances a are that they will succeed. Some v girls are taking the premedical course V and some women doctors are not a q surprise, these young ladies, too, will succeed. Sugar chemistry has been the choice of some. The same profes- r sors teach the boys and girls the same g subjects at the same hours, no par- i tiality is shown, which is an advan- c tage to both and so it is not surpris- a ing at all to hear that each term " brings more young ladies to the uni- * versity. The coeds, as the young lady stu dents are called, play an important s part in the college activities. There a are three social sororites, semi-chorus, d chorus, women's athletic association, ' hikers club, young women's christian association, Catholic coed clubs, journ- P alistic sorority and coed assembly. The sororites have been a great advantage and have given a great d deal of pleasure and entertainment t' to the members and freshmen whom a they rush. They also increase the P college spirit. The semi-chorus is the girls' musi- h cal organization which is directed by a Prof. W. H. Stopher and gives each C girl a chance in the musical activities. It meets twice a week. w The university chorus is composed ci of both the Glee club, the boys' musi cal organization, and the semi-chorus, ci or any voice student desiring to be- ti long. It meets every Monday after- ti is an organization which began in al 1919. It was organized by Miss p; Florence Smith, physical training director at the university. A few Ii: charter members were chosen from ge the department of physical training. Any coed gaining ten points either is by hiking, making a team, helping a Ml health card, etc., is elligible. All the E girls have entered with the greatest D interest and enthusiasm and it, too, S. has grown. It is through this organi ave zation that the coeds have their big in athletic games between the sections, sed and which has strengthened the col ere lege spirit among the girls. ate Some of the members of the Womn ght en's Athletic Association have organ for ized a hiker's club, and any member is elligible who hikes twenty-five on miles a term. During the Christmas een holidays, five coeds set out from Bat ing on Rouge and hiked to New Orleans spending the night in different towns, ing and reported a wonderful time. sts, The Young Women's Christian As ieir sociation and the Catholic coed club rt- are the two religious' organizations, ies- so some time is spent for the spiritual welfare as well as the socials at the two beginning of the year. These two ake organizations go in together and give ices a big party for all of the coeds, me whether Jew or Gentile. All are in Lrse vited and in this way all become ac t a quainted. will Then during the year the Y. W. C. een A. have a "stunt night" which is `es- real sport. All of the organizations me get up a stunt and they are staged ar- in the coeds' gymnasium, and of an- course all of the "boys" come and ris- amid cheers, laughter andf .flowers, rm mostly clover, the coeds stage their performance. The journalistic sorority is a pro tu- fessional sorority for the coeds ant studying journalism who have reached ere a certain standard. Although its duty is to carry on professional work, , it has a big initiation and a little lan "goating" also. The journalism de rn- partment is growing and of course the sorority is also. eat Coed assembly meets every Thurs. eat day. All coeds are compelled to at ent tend because this is the only time om all can get together to make future the plans. The coeds make their own rules and Isi- have an honor council. The rules are by apprived by the Dean of Women and tch Col. Thos. D. Boyd. ies. Each house has a house president who is supposed to report any mis ;ed conduct on the part of any girl. *si. Of course, at the ball games, the us, coeds have their own cheering sec be- tion and take an important part in er- the cheering. fo fege"enthiuslasm as the boys i'd in are just as true. And as each year iss passes, the school improves. ng Come on in, girls, get in the swim ew life at. L. S. U. It is great and you >m get the real college pep and spirit. ig.

Canities, from the latin word Canus, meaning white, is the blanching of the hair due to atrophy of the pig ment, it may be congenital or ac quired in type and maybe only par tial or complete and its progress may be sudden or slow. When congenital it usually occurs in patches. It may also be general, in such cases the person is called an Albino. Acquired canities may be premature or senile, if it occurs before the age of thirty-five it may, for convenience be called premature. We know defiA nitely what the atrophic processes are due to cellular degeneration and these may be caused by the gradual retro gression of hair and pigmient forming elements or to toxic, nelrotis or phy sic factors. Stimulation of the sc4lp by means of electric and other irr tating appli. "cations and medicationsl serve to re tard the progress of thik condition. When one's youthful dppearance or one's vocation demands that one must 3E subimt to grey hairs, then dying must be resorted to. 1's While one's occupational progress or A inclinations demands dark hair, it is It- only recommended as a last resort. Is. The individual cannot sucessfully color he his own hair. An inefficient, careless, il- ignorant operator is a worse evil. he When it is decided that dyeing of one's hair is necessary, select a person as who has knowledge of the formation :le of the hair, cellularly, and anatom u- ically. A thorough understanding of the various kinds of coloring agents m an the mode of careful, correct appli cation, also the chemical experience n- in neutralizing agents for removal in n> case the color does not please. A is, streaked, unevenly dyed head of hair as is now more unsightly than the grey. er Dyeing can be done so that it is not is possible to detect it and can be made k, to look perfectly natural. 's When a person begins dyeing, hair, ' it is. a long, frequent, tedious and ex pensive process and requires constant intermediate care and at the best it destroys the hair in a few years by the drying and brittleness produced through the chemical reactions be. I tween the hair substance and the f agents used. ". The metallic dyes are more or less ý. dangerous. The vegetable dyes are r~ safer and more satisfactory and this ry discriminating knowledge is essential to a successful operator. While the rs shades from metallic dyes are truer 1, the effects upon the skin of the head n are dangerous. It is amazing, the confidence and trust the laity evinces e in the average operator and the "e chances they take in placing them e selves in the care of persons abso i. lutely ignorant of all knowledge of ' the chemistry of hair dyes.. If you e must dye, do so carefully and in fear -. and trembling, or the results may be g green; purple or orange tresses or r- worse, a raw scalp, swollen face or puffed eyes. One helpful suggestion ,s may be, the vegetable dyes usually 1 are powdered and the metallic ones .usually liquid. Any way see that your operator knows what is the na r ture of the agent being used.
