The North Salem Woman 's club with
its characteristic originality has formed
a magazine conimitUte whicn has raised
$1.00, and subscribed "for six magazines.
These magazines are technical and the
purpose of the eeleetion was to relate
them closely to tne;iiv,es and work of
the members, as the purely literary
and cultural magazines may be read at
the public library and elsewhere. . The
magazines are:. The House Beautiful,
Motion Picture Magazine, Book News
Monthly, Mothers Magazine, Good
Housekeeping, and Modern Priscilla.

high score and Mrs. Lloyd Stiffler cap
tured second honors. Refreshments
were served afterwards by Mrs; Hansen
Mrs. James Chinnock, Mrs. Lloyd Stif
fler. 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.

Mrs. Baldwin P. 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

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

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

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. I explained
to her that she had crossed her color
scheme. She had a violet gray. She
was sl.eptical but finally we ilid her
room in the proper gray and she was
perfectly satisfied.
I want to sound a note of warning j J
against copying color schemes or homes It

Portland there is a bungalow craze that
is all wrong. Bungalows do not be
long in Oregon. The wide overhang-,
ing eaves, porches and pergolas over
all the windows and doors that cuts
out all the sunshine is all wrong for
us. In California it is all right. There
they were the result of a natural and
legitimate need. The style was evolv
ed there to suit that climate Then
the dnrk interior decorations used there
was restful after the outdoor glare of
sunshine, but in Oregon we have green

Whichever is our psychic color that
is the one we love best. We vibrate
in harmony with it. Color vibrates
as well as music, all life vibrates. If
you think you have no decided choice
in colors test yoirrself and see. Bring
in a bunch of flowers, spread them out
and see which color you choose and
like best. The flowers that you in
stinctively ehoose when walking in a
(tarden or in the fields or woods will
prove a test. It is the eolor and not
the kind of flower that makes you ex
claim "Oh, how lovely." Then take
samples of paper or fabrics and the
eolor that gives yo a thrill of pleas
ure is the one your psychie eolor and
if you were tested scientifically, it
would be tke same. I've never known
it to fail. Men will often say "Oh.
