Modern Methods
Prevail In China
Says Miss Wong
Chinese colleges .of the present
time are not greatly different from
those in America, according to the
report of Priscilla Wong, grad, who
has come from Canton, China this.
fall to take special work in sociology
at this University. She is a resident
of the Adelia Cheever house.
Miss Wong is a graduate of the
Canton Christian college. This, like
most of the large schools in China,
was estalished by missionaries, and
most of the work is given in English.
Several of the colleges encourage co-
education, although this custom is not
followed in the secondary schools.
Athletics have their place in the
curriculum of a Chinese school as
well as in the American school, and a
Michigan student who visits China
need not be lonesome for the sight or
a game of basket-ball, base-ball, vol-
ley-ball, or football,. Dormitories are
also a feature of their school life
Miss Wong states that at the schools
where she has been, the living quar-
ters are somewhat similar to those
-of our own large dormitories, with the
exception that, in the secondary
school dormitories, there are often
three or four girls in a room.
These modern conditions prevail in
the schools in the region of Shanghai,
Canton, and Pekin, but are found less
often in the interior. The contrast

'26, also of the Adelia Cheever house.
Miss Chang is also from Canton, but
she left China for America ten years
ago when the old system of education
was still practically the onlyone in
China;. Miss Chang obtained he
early education in a small school for
girls, conducted in a temple or some
other public building where the stu-
dents were even required to furnish
their own desks. Most of the time
was spent in learning to read and
write the Chinese characters, and to
Both of the women expect to go
back to their own country as teach-
ers becase, in the words of Miss
Chang, "Over here there are so many
who are well equipped, and one should
give to one's country some of what
one has learned."
Foreign Students
Michigan is a hard place in which
to get acquainted, because it is large,
but for that reason also it has more
to offer, in the opinion of the six for
eign students at Betsy Barour house.
Three of the six, Taus Jodai, grad..

Anna Lan, grad., Imay Jong, '28M,
and Hsiao Lu, '27 are Chinese. Most
of them have taken a leading part in
student activities in their native col
Some of their customs, they explain,
are noticeably different from those of
our country. In gymnasium work
more stress is laid on calisthenics
than specialized athletics. The wom
en find it very difficult to get ove
their nervousness in playing hockey
which seems a strange game to them.
Church customs also seem differ-
ent to them. "Nothing is quite the
same as we have ben taught but we
love to hear the singing," one of them
said. They cannot understand wh
most American students take re-
ligious matters so lightly. To them
the churiwh is the most important
thing in their lives.
All of these women believe that'
they should retain the characteristici
life of their nationality because it is
most natural for them, but they are
anxious to learn all about the Amen

public health work. Americanization

cause their. population is born to the
soil and they have no such problem.
Betsy Barbour 'is an ideal place to
live, they think. There a foreign
woman can become better acquaint-
ed with American life and ideals ana
fell more at home than at college or
church functions.

Cho Ren, '27M, and Yi Fong Wu,
grad., come to Michigan from Ginling
College, China. Both expect to get
doctor's degrees before leaving, Miss
Ren in medicine, and Miss Wu in
"We had heard many nice things
about Michigan before we came here
but it is better than we expected,"
Miss Wu says of the University.
"Everyone is friendly, but I guess
our names bother people." Chinese
children, she says, are not given
anything but a pet name until they
are of school age. The name a: child
receives at the age of five or six is
the name he uses outside of the fam-
ily for the rest of his life but the
familiar name is always used in the

a master's degree in social science
next June. She received the bach-
ellor's degree from Ohio university
where she spent two years as a gov-

can exchange. Previous to that time
Miss Steinfeld studied at Lycee de
Jeune Filles at Strasbourg Bas-Rhin,
in Alsace.
"Foreign universities are only for
graduate work-perhaps that accounts
for the difference in foreign and Am-
erican university life," said Miss
Steinfeld. "There is no social life at
foreign universities. There are no
dormitories, no sororities, no fra-
ternities. Any clubs that may be or-
ganized are for intellectual purposes
only. A paper such as your Michigan
Daily is not necessary; an officialj
bulletin of an entirely scientific na-
ture takes care of important class

she would not see the representative

the demonstration at Ferry Field dur'

she didn't expect to see any of the

me," she said, "I get too nervous."

Attracts Students
Students comerto Michigan from all
parts of the world but it is decidedly
unusual to see on our campus the
native costume of the Hindu woman.
E. K. Janaki, grad., comes to the
University from Malabar, in south
India, to do special work in the nat-
ural sciences. Miss Janaki holds two
degrees from Madras Christian Col-
lege, Madras, South India. She says
college work in India and at Michi-
gan cannot be comparced because it is
very different but she comes to Michi-
gan for the wide opportunity it offers
to do research work in her chosen
line of study.
William T. Tilden II, who is about
as good a tennis player as there is in
the world today is to leave the courts
for the stage. The latest reports have
it that he will join Stewart Walker's
company sometime in November, al-
though before that he was rumored
to be headed for the movies.
Johnny Lavan, former infielder for
the St. Louis Cardinals, will manage
the Kansas City club of the Ameri-
