friendly relations between foreign
students and American women. Mem-
bers of the fellowship committees ofI
the Y. W. C. A. and the S. C. A., the
Cosmopolitan club, and all foreign

Besides this there is given every

further the friendly feeling with the
foreign students.,

Miss McHugh made a reputation

five years. She had been one of the
chief backtops for Taggart. So when
he fell ill this summer she was the
