Plan to Exchange Students and
Professors and Establish
Lecture Bureau
Many plans for strengthening the
already rising feeling for cosmopoli-
tanism among the colleges in this
country were discussed by speakers of
nte at the ninth annual convention
of the Corda Fratres Association of
Cosmopolitan Clubs held last week at
Holyoke House, Cambridge, Mass.
Chief among these were the plans for
the international exchange of profes-
sors and students, and the establish-
ment of a cosmopolitan lecture bureau
by different clubs. The latter plan
is already being tried by Michigan with
much success, and it was on the
strength of this success that the plan
was suggested for national acceptance.
Michigan was represented by E. R.
Sylvester, '17.
Prominent Men Among Speakers.
Prominent among the speakers were
Charley D. Hurrey of New York, chair-
man of the central committee for pro-
moting friendly relations among over-
sea students of the Cosmopolitan
clubs, Dean Burton of the Massachu-
setts Institute of Technology, Dr.
George Nasmyth, preside'nt of the As-
sociation, F. B. Foulk, editor of the
Cosmopolitan Student, and President
Lemuel H. Murlin of Boston Univer-
sity. -
Student Exchange Important Issue.
The interchange of students was
one of the main issues of the conven.
tion. "What this interchange ef-
fects," said Mr. Durrey, in his address
on that question, "may be seen in the
transformed public mind towards
China, by which the Chinese in the
United States have been raised above
the cooley or laundryman class in the
thought of the people to that of
thinking, educated men, capable of
}eat friendships." Mr. Hurrey then
'told of the ways in which the Cos-
mopolitan clubs are able to help in
establishing a better international
feeling among students from other
countries in the United States. First
impressions, he said, count. greatly,
and the clubs might send representa-
tives to the boats to meet the students
when they arrive, welcome them, and
makesthem feel at home in this country
almost from the 'start.
. The clubs might also help find satis-
factory living conditions for these new-
comers, many of whom now live among
surroundings which do not have the
right reaction on their character. It
was suggested also that the foreign
student be helped in his selection of
studies and enrolling in the university.
Again the University of Michigan at-
tracts notice, having already a bureau
of informuation for foreign students,
under the direction of Professor Hild-
ner, which gives aid to students in
finding rooms, selecting courses, and
even suspends payment of tuition when
the student is not able to pay it.
Pan-American Relations Discussed.
The relations with Pan-American
countries were discussed in the Wed-
nesday session by Mr. P. A. Campos o
Porto Rico, president of the Harvad
Cosmopolitan'Club. Mr. Campos said
that the attitude of the United States

toward Cuba after the war with Spain
had been a potent influence in deter-
-mining the general feeling in Span-
ish American countries toward the
United States.
The session ended with a dinner att
the Harvard Union Thursday. At a
luncheon given at the Twentieth Cen-
tury Club, President Lemuel H. Murlin
of Boston University, representing the
universities of the east, was the prin-
cipal speaker. "The foundation of
cosmopolitanism," he said, "is to know
how to get along with our neighbor,
and that means how to treat eachI
other as gentlemen, coming togethert
with charity and courtesy. The greatt
business of the college is to train men
to be gentlemen rather than lawyers,
academicans or to fill other materialt
offices. Cosmolitan clubs in college
help men to find their way up and to
see the best in each other. Cosmo-
politanism makes patriotism take on3
a new and higher form. -'
Prof. Lorch Addresses Women at Dorn
Professor Emil Lorce of the Archi-
tecture department gave the first of
a series of talks recently at the Mar-
tha Cook building relative to the archi-
tecture of that building. He spoke'
of the traditions of dormitory architec-
ture and explained some of the basic
ideas of the Gothic style.

Another bill that contains every ele-
mnent of pleasure is announced to open
at the Majestic tonight. It is filled
with novelty and originality and a
very clever farce on "Votes for
Women" heads the bill. A most orig-
inal and clever sketch is also included
in the offering.
A combination of satire and musical
2onedy is found in "The Suffragette
girls." This is a short musicalcom-
edy in which ten people take part, in-
eluding a bevy of pretty chorus girls.
Described as the funniest act in
vaudeville, "Won By a Leg" will be
presented by Gordon Eldrid and his
company. This is an act which has
ueen made for laughing purposes
only, for it is a farce pure and simple.
The lines are bright and clean and
antirely free from the crassness and
characteristics of a great majority of
similar offerings.
Senator Francis Murphy is called
'The Chairman of the Committee." As
an orator, Murphy is in a class by him--

the European war to the Panama canal

laiming the attention of the public.

The very latest hit of the screen, "A
Woman's Past," will be seen at the
Majestic Sunday. The play was writ-

tains a cast of exceptional merit. Be-
sides Nance O'Neil, who plays the lead-
in role, there also appeal several of
the best known artists of the day.
kmong them is Alfred Hickman, who
' :jes his debut. Mr. Hickman became

and since the days of that success he
