Ann Arbor Women Arrange Teas
For New 'International Wives'
By KATHLEEN MOORE
Wives of international students
chatted over cups of tea while;
their children, nearly all pre-
school age, rapidly became ac-
quainted with each other at a
gathering Wednesday in the Inter-
national Center Lounge.

The tea was part of a program
planned and executed by a group
of 40 Ann Arbor v-omen under the
direction of Esther S. Dunham.
Preceding the tea, the Ann Arbor
hostesses tok the "international
wives" for a drive through the
city to show them "some of our
beautiful spots," Mrs. Dunham
said.
She explained that the idea of
a program in which townspeople
and international wives participate
is not new. During World War II
such a group banded together at
the International Center to pre-
pare clothing for shipment to Eu-
rope, she explained.
After the war, "the interest
waned because the crisis was over"
and the group soon became ex-
tinct, Mrs. Dunham continued.
But, she added, international stu-
dents and their wives continued
to come to the United States and
the University - in increasingly
large numbers.
,With the idea that some attempt
should be made to become ac-
quainted with the 120 internation-
al wives who are not students now
living in Ann Arbor. Kathleen
Mead, International Center ad-
ministrative assistant, asked Mrs.
Dunham to plan a few informal
gatherings. Mrz Dunham decided
that the plan should be supported
by neighborhocd groups to include
a representation of women with
"variety of ages and faiths and
prefessions."
The neighbors she contacted
greeted the plan with interest, and
the international wives she talked
with were "as enthusiastic as the
neighbors," Mrs. Dunham said.
Thus encouraged, Mrs. Dunham
League TelIls
Of Program
For 'Week'
The League's project for Inter-
national Week will be to have each
women's housing unit except
league houses and Inter-Coopera-
tive Council co-ops sponsor a dif-
ferent country which is repre-
sented at the University, Eloise
Eberhart, '60, League international
chairman, announced.
Speaking at Wednesday's League
Senate meeting, Miss Eberhart
explained that each of the 48
houses on campus will take one
of the 48 countries represented
here, and working with students
from that country, plan a program
for the week.
The houses will fill out prefer-
ence sheets, and the country as-
signed to each house will be an-
nounced at the next meeting of
the senate on Nov. 5, Miss Eber-
hart explained.
"For added incentive," she said,,
"the housing units will turn in
a list of what they have done dur-
ing International Week, and the
house which has done the most
will receive a trophy such as a
small globe saying 'World Friend-
ship',"

TEA TIME-While their mothers have tea, these children, repre-
senting several nations play together. The tea was given at the
International Center so that wives of international students could
meet with a group of Ann Arbor women.

went ahead with her plans. The
first get-together was a garden
tea held in September attended
by five international wives and
seven neighbors of Mrs. Dunham.
This initial gathering she de-
scribed as "highly successful."

"Preparing for each Saturday's
Block-M display is a complicated
process," explained James Shapiro,
'60, co-chairman of the Wolverine
Club's Block-M.
Shapiro and Genny Leland, '60,
the other co-chairman, are respon-
sible for directing and coordinat-
ing the various steps which lead
up td the final product: each Sat-
urday's new display.
The first step, Shapiro said is to
talk to William Revelli, director of
University Bands to learn the
band's program for that game. The
Block tries to coordinate its dis-
plays with the band's performance
in so far as possible. If the visiting
school is sending its band, the
Block contacts them, and, if pos-;
sible, tries to coordinate with their
program also, he added.
Then the Block's design chair-
man works out the week's display.
He does it, Shapiro explained, on
a scale of the Block, so that all
the specific details can be drawn
up.
Immediately before the game,
the cards and capes to be used that
week are distributed under the
supervision of the facilities chair-
man. He must work in close super-
vision with the Stadium ushers.
The planning and organization
of the Block and of the designs
and displays must be precise, Sha-
piro said,, because of the large size
of the Block. It is 45 rows deep and
there are 29 seats in each row.
As a constant check and also to
serve as inspiration, photos and
movies are taken of the Block in
action, Shapiro concluded,

One prerequisite for a program
in which the main aim is to make
friends, Mrs. Dunham explained,
is to have "something to do and
something to talk about."
Keeping this consideration in
mind, Mrs. Dunham and her
neighbors are planning a series of
informal neighborhood teas during
November and December at which
there will be a "subject for in-
formal discussion." Although plans
are still "nebulous," the teas that
are held will be small, with no
more than 10 or 12 women in eachI
group, she said.
- Mrs. Dunham described the pos-
sible discussion topics as things in
which wives generally would be
interested. The groups may com-
pare notes on Thanksgiving fes-
tivals through the world, she said,
or exchange information on cook-
ing, handwork or art objects in
different cultures.
The group also hopes, she said,
to entertain the international
wives during the Christmas season,.
The whole program should pro-
vide opportunity for everyone par-
ticipating to make new friends and
learn of cultures and customs
other than their own, Mrs. Dun-
ham concluded.

Groups Plan
'Bucket Drive
For Camp
A bucket drive to support the
University fresh air camp will be
held Nov. 13 and 14, Joan Comi-
ano, '61, central committee mem-
ber announced today.
Sponsored by Assembly Associ-
ation, Inter-House Council, Pan-
hellenic Association and Inter-
Fraternity Council, the drive will
be conducted in more than 30
locations throughout Ann Arbor
and the University campus.
A similar bucket drive in 1956
made $4,057. The goal for this
year's drive is $4,000, according to
Miss Comiano. Residence halls,
fraternities and sororities will be
contacted soon by the committee
to man the buckets.
The funds will be used to pay
a portion of the expenses of the 70
emotionally disturbed children
who attend the University's fresh
air camp each summer.
In previous years $5,000 has been
donated by University drives to
provide the additional funds nec-
essary to pay each child's expenses
for the seven-week session.
Members of the central com-
mittee for the drive are Miss
Comiano, '61, from Assembly,
Charles A. Sheffer, '61, represent-
ing the Inter-House Council and
Peter Theut, '60, and Jonathan H.
Trost, '61, of the Inter-Fraternity
Council.
Panhellenic Association is repre-
sented by Toby J. Chapman, '61,
Denise A. Carne, '61, and Anna J,
Svenson, '61.
