After a semester of learning

of the League, members of the
Buro-Cats will have an opportu-
nity to learn details about League
Buro-Cats will become ex-officio
members of League administrative
committees of their choice at the
start of next semester.
Approximately one hundred wo-
men are members of Buro-Cats,
Jackee Mervis, '60, secretary of
the League and chairman of the
Buro-Cat advisory board said.
The nine League committees
which Buro-Cats may join are
community service, house, inter-
national, public relations, social,
special projects, tutorial and Uni-
versity services.
Buro-Cat members are mostly
freshmen, Miss Mervis explained,
with some transfer students and
other girls who decided to become
active in the League during their
sophomore year.
During the first semester the
Buro-Cats have been working as,
members of five committees: These
are special events, receptionist,
secretariat, art and activities.
Buro-Cats will remain on these
committees but most of their work
will concern their own special
committee instead of doing work
for all the League committees,
Miss Mervis said.
Chairmen of the five commit-
tees are sophomores who peti-
tioned for their positions.
In April, she added, Buro-Cats
will be eligible to petition for
sophomore positions in the

SWEDISH SOUVENIR-A hand-carved wooden bird is one of
the few items purchased by Judith Morrison while living in
Sweden last summer on the Experiment in International Living.
She spent little time in curiosity shops, she said, preferring to
absorb Swedish culture.

"Unfortunately Sweden and the
Swedish people are greatly mis-
understood by a vast majority of
Americans who have never had
the good fortune of living among
them and getting to know their
way of life," Judith Morrison,
59Ed, said.
Miss Morrison was one of 750
American students who sailed
from New York last summer on
;he Experiment in International
Living plan. These students were
sent to various countries in West-
ern Europe where they lived with
a European family for several
Her destination was Sweden
where she was to gain some
knowledge and appreciation of
foreign cultures while at the same
time acting as a. good will am-
bassador for the United States.
"Americans have some idea that
the Swedish people are amoral,
loose-living people,;' she said. "Ac-
tually this is, not altogether true.
They are very warm, wonderful
and sincere.

sociation will hold "European

year, now is continuing her stu-
lies at the University.
She remarked that many of the
people she met had definite im-
pressions of Americans. The
Swedish people, she explained, are
very inquisitive about Americans
and American impressions of
them. "The first two questions they
generally asked me were, 'How
many cars do you have ,and
'What do 'you think of Swedish
"In Sweden," she said, "they
are very much concerned about
the segregation problem in the
South. The Communists, of course
play this up tremendously, but
fortunately the group is very weak
in Sweden. I never tried to excuse
it but simply explained the situ-
ation in its proper context."
"In Sweden I was accepted as
one of them, so I got a much deep-
er insight into their way of life,
which is' quite beautiful."
"I lived with two different fam-
ilies while I was there," she said.
They were very nice and they took
me not only into their homes, but
into their hearts. I learned so
much from them about their
people and culture," Miss Morri-
son added.
Discounts Language
L a n g u a g e differences, Miss
Morrison said, constitute only
minor points which separate
peoples. "In Europe," she said, "I
learned that one can communi-
cate with the heart as well as
with the voice. I discovered that
people can communicate with ges-
tures" to attain a mutual under-
Conversing with taxi cab driv-
ers, she counted as 'one of her
favorite pastimes. "In this way
you really learn to appreciate the
opinions of other people," she
said. "Despite air transportation
the world is still a very large place
containing a lot of different people
and ideas."
"Many Americans create a very
bad impression of our country,"
she continued, explaining that
"they are what I call the unde-
sirable element which is loud and
In spite of the wonderful time
Miss Morrison had in Sweden, she
was very .glad to return home.
"When you see the statue of liber-
ty from the deck of a ship," she
said, "you. really realize what a
wonderful country the United
States is."

Many a girl would rather walk home than
do without Camels. For the 10th straight
year, this cigarette outsells every other -
every filter, every king-size, every regular.
The Camel blend of costly tobaccos has
never been equalled for rich flavor and
easygoing mildness. Today as always, the
best tobacco makes the best smoke.
Don't give in to fads and fancy stuff..,
