The ingredients of this spectacle of stars are dance, music, color and a light heart. When a Mexican wants a new costume, he looks at the rainbow, according to legend.

Nothing anywhere known to man compares with the originality and color of Mexican native wardrobes. They are a part of every ceremony, celebration and festival. Dance costumes, drawn from ?,000 years of textile art and thi’ee tivilizations, are of the most skill ful needlework.

The oxygen tent was removed from his hospital room. There was no thought of his as suming the burdens of a full White House schedule that soon. But, barring complications, administra tive associates seem agreed he will be able to make any necessary decisions fram the calm of his farmhouse at Gettysbui’g, Pa. The President will be 65 on Oct. 14. Some Outfits Violate 1 lazing Regulations Rumors of freshmen per sonal service for upperclass men are now being investiga ted, according to Col. Joe E. Davis, commandant. Several rumors state that fresh men have been cleaning upper classmen’s rooms, shining bi’ass and boots and doing other miscel laneous things. “Some outfits have lost more freshmen than they should,” Col. Davis said. “But we have not made any statements of disbanding any of them because they have lost some of their men.” During the officer orientation before school. Col. Davis said a unit, would be dissolved if it lost too many of their members. We cannot have such small outfits be cause such units don’t function properly, he said. Dr. Robert B. Kamm, dean of Student Personnel Services, said he had received several reports from freshmen about sophomores, with two cases where freshmen had to stand at a brace against the wall for two hours. Several company commanders are now in the process of writing reports on the cases involved. One of these reports is on a freshman who did 40 push-ups and then col lapsed. Hospital authorities said they knew “nothing” about such an incident. An 11:20 a.m. MST medical bul letin revealed: 1. The President slept this morn ing outside the oxygen tent for the first time since he suffered a heart attack early Saturday. 2. His condition “continues to be satisfactory without complica tions.” White House press secretary James C. Hagerty also disclosed that a tape recoiding machine was brought into the President’s room at his request and that he listened briefly to soft chamber music. Presidential advisers abandoned for the-time being any further con sideration of how Eisenhower could delegate authority to others as an other day passed without compli cations. The optimistic view that the President soon will be able to start resuming his duties, apparently shared by officials in Washington as well as here, was tempered by the knowledge that a setback could change the picture. As Dr. Paul Dudley White put it last night, the President “is not out of the woods yet, but he’s coming along nicely.” The eminent Boston heart spe cialist, who receives twice daily reports from physicians at the bed side by lonjg-distance telephone, said Eisenhower’s progi'ess is fol lowing the routine pattern. “It’s neither faster nor slower than nor mal,” he said.
