":-':v-;. i Having Fun With Pop Art at Mary Institute By JicJt January, a Post-Dlepatob FbotoKrapair Miss Robbin McDonnell, a student at Mary Institute, with her pop art piece, "The Nest." It is made of insulated book wrapping and seed pods. By Dorothy Jane Aticood WOE TO THE WOMAN who throws away an unmatched earring, a rusted hair clip or a nut without a bolt. For out of these and other seemingly useless items, a Mary Institute student has made (if that is how you say it) a piece of pop art. Suspended by wire from an egg carton partition, she has constructed an object. Its artistic value appears to be up to the viewer to determine. "The Alexander Calder exhibit on display at Steinberg Hall has nothing on us! " Aimee Schweig, head of the art department at Mary Institute, said. "Pop art is not serious just creative. Anything which stimulates creativity aids self confidence and a youngster's ability to put together unexpected elements into new combinations. Thus creativity aroused in art might carry over Into other subjects, such as English or dramatics. Creativity is one of the greatest assets a person can have, and one which is useful all through life." Materials used by the students are collected at home and around the Miss Lois Shapleigh puts the finishing touches on "Mechanical Mind." It is made of plastic toy cogs and odds and ends found at home. The question mark and dollar sign are interpreted by some to be results of man's thinking. classroom. Some collect with a definite idea in mind. One girl is doing a pop art piece on Czechoslovakia. Others just assemble what they find in waste paper baskets and drawers and decide later what they are making. James Bond, the late Ian Fleming's dashing hero, is the subject of a combined work of pop art and collage, the assembling of printed material on one surface. The collage shows pictures of British Secret Service Agent 007 pasted on gold painted cardboard. The pop art is a gun extending from the hero's hand. When completed the student and an older brother added a bit more Bond to it they shot holes in it. One pasteboard box, wrapped in a red and white checked cloth, holds a plastic drinking cup, an assortment of pill bottles, a toothbrush, an empty cough drop box, artificial flowers, cotton, a thermometer case and a get well card. One other object was included in the apparent medicine cabinet collection, a cigar. Pop art, a product of the sixties, is an outgrowth of collage. The first modern collage was made Ly Pablo Picasso in 1912. He affixed a piece of Miss Jane Fordyce creates "Atmosphere," a mobile Incorporated into pop art, out of scraps of metal and paper. She plans to hang crystals from the picture frame and paint it silver. oil cloth, painted to simulate a chair caning, to a cubist still life. Shortly thereafter, Georges Braque used newsprint in adrawing and Juan Gris used mirrors and photographs. Mrs. Schweig says pop art is relaxing after hard work. The art program at the school includes drawing, painting in water colors and oils, sculpture and ceramics. The girls are also looking at examples of "op" art. Op means optical illusions. So far none have attempted op. Some students confessed they have not tried pop art. "I don't appreciate It" and "It's silly" were reasons they gave. But Mrs. Schweig says, "We keep up with the trends In art. If they try It themselves, they understand it." One alumna, hearing of the program thought it sounded like fun. About to depart for a Florida vacation, she has envisioned a pop art piece made of sea shells hung with seaweed from a piece of driftwood. Her problem: How will she get it home? fjjet Lag' Unbalances Victims' Time Sense Four Scholarships Abroad Available FOUR travel-education scholarships are being offered to residents of St. Louis and St. Louis county for the summer of 1965 by the St. Louis Council for the Experiment in International Living.

There is "tremendous need" for women trained for such positions, says Dean of Women Miriam A. Shelden. "The house director position is a demanding one.

MEMBERS of the Mount Providence Mothers' Club will meet at the school, 8351 Florissant road, Normandy, next Tuesday evening at 8 o'clock. Guest speaker will be Dr. Joseph Haberle, assistant professor of pharmacy at the St. Louis College of Pharmacy and Allied Sciences. His topic will be "Two Thousand Years of Cos-motology." By Eugenia Sheppard pplsii '; v t; ONE OF THE CHIC new ailments is jet lag. To suffer from Jjfet lag it's necessary to have traveled six or seven hours on a .jet, long enough to have dislocated the time perspective slightly. The symptoms of the disease are vagueness and dizziness and the duration may be as long as a week. Jet Jag strikes suddenly. The victim disembarks from the jet plane feeling gay as a sprite, dashes through customs, checks into a home or a hotel as the case may be, finds there's just time to make the next party, greets friends and in the course of the next few hours falls into a light coma. From then on there's no quick cure for jet lag. described by V various sufferers as like a -nng hangover," "like dancing out of step," and "like feeling as if there were a huge sheet of plate glass between yourself and ;the rest of the world." i A seasoned traveler hardly likes to admit feeling jet lag from "t little jaunt such as a flight to New York from London, Paris or "Rome. The trip the other way, though, is apt to have more erious consequences. There's the tempting arrival in the morning with a whole brand new European day ahead. A night's sleep goes down the drain, never to be caught again. Actually jet lag from a little trip is harder to fight, psychologically, at least, than jet lag from a longer one. Travelers around 'he world usually just have to give up and sometimes sleep i J8 hours at a stretch. v Remedies for jet lag are as individual as the symptoms of !tlie disease. Try a long brisk walk. Try another hot meal, even ,4f you've just finished one on the plane. Try going to bed immediately. Try not going to bed immediately. Try sliding gently jiom the last time schedule Into the new one, or move the hands Qf the traveling clock forward and do it all at once. Try everything and it won't do any good. Jet lag will still be 4here a minor but ghastly kind of emotional shock. I A gorgeous girl in the Sherry Netherlands bar, movie star !aliah Lavi, was suffering from jet lag. She had flown in from Xondon. She was coping with jet lag by working through a full-icale luncheon oysters and chopped steak with onions and inushrooms. Later she planned to ease Into life In New York by driving around the city and looking it over, ff Frequent trips are no inoculation against jet lag. Store .buyers, dress manufacturers, editors, fashion photographers and iahers who travel two to six times a year to far places know :nd dread the inevitable attacks. :i For his last trip to Europe, designer Bill Blass decided to jilay smart. For eight nights before he took off, he collected an aextra hour of sleep. In Paris he came down with a worse case qf jet lag than usual. j Copyright, 1863, Htrald Tribun tiw Senica Women's Week at St. Louis U. t 1' A SERIES OF TALKS will be given to lay women students of fit.
