Costume Girls Begin
Preparation for Plays
Startled spiders, daddy long legs,
and stray mice have suddenly
found themselves on the hostile end
of a determinedly-wielded broom
as they were swept from one of
their favorite haunts—the costume
department in the basement of
Friendly hall.
The broom belongs to Pat Lane,
now head of the costume depart
ment for the University theater,
who has some definite ideas about
how a costume department should
be run.
“Although one feels like a mole
after being down there for an
new head of the costume depart
hour, I hope that we will be able
to get the costumes cleaned, mend
ed, and catalogued before the end
of the year,” Miss Lane declared.
Considering that there are 200
costumes, 50 hats in various states
Miss Lane and the 14 girls helping
her have chosen a man-sized task.
But to this job are added the sea
sonal difficulties.
In the fall one must wade
through the mountain of leaves
that pile up on the steps leading
down to the basement. These same
leaves clog up the sewage system
so that the drainage seeks a new
outlet onto the basement floor.
I .
“This is really a small trifle com
pared to the results of the spring
floods,” said Miss Lane as she an
ticipated the half a foot of water
that covers the basement floor dur
ing the spring rains.
The costumes hang from racks
and therefore aren’t damaged by
the submerged floor. Dust and dirt
perform the real damage to the cos
tumes which range from medieval
period to 1930.
The collection is made up most
ly from donations, although some
have been made by the department
and others purchased. The most
prized possessions of the depart
ment are the authentic1 19th cen
tury gowns and suits which have
been used in many period plays
produced by the University thea
ter. Occasionally, the theater must
rent costumes for a production
causing a noticeable effect on the
cast “who love to wear rented cos
tumes and always work with in
creased enthusiasm,” Miss Lane
The first project on her program
will be to get dust covers for the
racks of costumes. Marilyn Vogt,.
Hazel Jennaway, Barbara Kirsch,
Nancy Humble, and Anita Hager
are busy cleaning those costumes
that can be washed, while the sew
ing and mending will be done by
Shirley Peters, Marilyn McLough
lin, Joyce Nixon, Leona Anderson,
and Nancy Humble. After the
cleaning, Nancy Applegate, Donna
Wells, Marian Roberts, and Myr
< lene Larson will catalog them.
“It’s really like playing in the
attic with our mothers’ long dress
es," Miss Lane confided, which in
dicates that in spite of the spiders
and mice, the girls really have a
good time.
