This week will, in all probability de termine whether Salem people wish to continue the musical artists course, which was so successful last year, as subscriptions will start on Monday and the sale of tickets follow immediately if the demand is large enough to war rant the bringing1 of the artists to Sa lem this winter. It will depend neces sarily on Salem's support of the offered series of musical events. Though the course last year was a prolonged treat to music lovers of the citv, there is an equal if not greater opiiortunity of fered this season for hearing the truly great artists. If the course becomes a reality, Gailski will appear in Decem ber, Ossip and Clara Gabrilowitsch in January and Gogorza in February. - Suggestive in every detail of the gala spirit of Hallowe'en was t"ie quaint frolic given last evening by Miss Ruth Brown at her home on Union street.

Doolittle. the well known interior decorator of Portland, gave a most inspiring and revealing talk at the art conference at the State Federation on Wednesday after noon. Mrs. LKionttle, wbo is a former resident of Salem, leaves next month on an "extended tour through the Orient, where she will study the sub ject oi interior decoration and con tribute articles for several leading papers on the results of her research work. Her address at the Federation, on "The Influence of Color in the Home" follows: "Color has a deeper significance than is generally supposed. I believe the underlying principle of color is the first cause for the present demand for violet (both red violet and blue violet) yel low and blue in house furnishing ma terials as well as dress fabrics. These colors stand for spirituality, intellect and wisdom. Despite the dreadful war now raging in Europe that would seem as though we had returned to savagery, 1 believe the human race on this earth is yearning and longing for greater spiritual insight and is striving for the wisdom to work out the problem for world peace and harmony. Without understanding the laws of psychology the world is by natural selection choos ing colors that stand for spiritual growth. Consequently the study of the psychology of color is becoming ono of our most interesting ones and in the school for Interior Decorating, it is im perative to attend all the lectures on this subject in order to receive a diploma at the end of the course. We who have made even a beginning in this far reaching subject see how es sential it is to study our homes and bring our color schemes into harmony. As we grow older we begin to realize, as youth never can, how important are our Tir8t and early environments and impressions. How wonderful would be the results if all children from the mo ment they are born could be surround ed by right colors and things. William Morris said we should havo nothing in our homes excepting the useful nnd the beautiful but we have so many su perfluous things that are neither use ful nor beautiful. The Catholic says give nie the child till he is sevon and you may have him the rest of his life. We know that in tiiese first seven for mative years he will justill the princi ples that make character and that will abide with him all his life. Early im pressions may lie dormant all through middle life and then all of a sudden eomc to light. It is so in my own case and is in yours or will be . We all realize how bad it is to be compelled to listen to a discord in music. Let some one practice in our hearing and repent over and over the same mistake and it is maddening. Now color hns ita harmonies ami values as has music only it is not so well nor universally understood. To live in a house where tho color scheme is a discord disturbs our nerves, keeps up a wrong vibra tion and undermines our health even though we do not realize it There are people of highly strung personalities, who if confined constantly in a red room would go insane while those of a slow phlegmatic disposition would be helped, their intellect would be stirred and they would accomplish more. Consequently we should study our lieople. I always contend thn't each person should have his or her own room done in the color best suited to tho personality. To go to sleep and to waken in a room done in the color we love best is harmony nad rfives us strength. Euch Individual has a phsychie color. We are surrounded by nn aura and the color of this aura is the result of our personality and chang es with our development and moods. There are people who can see this aura and there is an instrument in the scien tific world that registers the color. This is a scientific fact and when once science demonstrates a thing it is no , , "",:. .!V'.."i'. f r i -, . V: . - '&; ; f I J. , , i . , . T 1,.. ,.., ......,,., & "imnn.it, ., .. . J Mrs. 0. H. Castner, of Hood River, who was elected president of the Oregon Federation of Woman's clubs, at the recent convention h.u this city. m HH4 A man will like a certain dress but all the light and warmth we can thinks it is the wearer well perhaps into our homes. So I advocate litlt it is but more likely it is both. I know walls gray, putty ivory or tan with rL a man wiio likes red roses, I Baid his , hancinirs. This color i imi(. .vT color was red. "Oh, nol I don't care, mullberry thut has been used so nimk for red ftnv mnrA thmi ntitrnlhniiAlnr TK tvKt :a .I.- i but when I had white roses, the same size, the same general arrangement, he did not even notice them. Some people have a prejudice against red which is foolish for it is a wonderful color, full of warmth, life and beauty. Red is right in its place just as blue is right; in its place. A blue color scheme in a north room with only north windows would be all wrong and make the room look cold as Greenland. It would not appeal to anvone. not even those who love blue best but put this onauge or red ' and the room would bo full of sun- shine. The complimentary color of red is green and there should always be a i touch of green in a red room. I want to now explain about groups. By mix ing red and green wq get gray. By ; mixing' any two complementary colors we get gray and when we do this per-' feetly we can not tell ono gray from another but this is so seldom done. If we odd a little more red than green we get a red gray, and a little more green than red a green gray. Both of these are warm colors. Blue and or ange make gray. By adding more blue than orange we get a blue or steel gray, the coldest of all colorB and seldom used. Violet and yellow make gray. 1 By adding a little more violet than yel low it is a violet or pinkish gray and when there is more yellow it is a French or yellow gray, so much used for walls. A neutralized violet or violet gray is considered by all scientists to be the most soothing color and is used in all our great sanitariums of the cast. When wo once understand color wo will know which gray to use with certain ! colors. For instnnce, with blue hang- j ings you would mix a color for your walls with orange and blue. A woman I called me in to do over a room. she. had gray walls, blue hangings and a j blue carpet. She wanted gray but had ' not been satisfied with her room anil thought she would change it.
