. "Besides having a high schol-

astic standing the student elected to
membership must have done some-!
thing for the college; thus the liter-I
ary clubs might require the publica-
tion of some literary work. Mostj
girls get into three clubs but no one,"
can belong to more than that number."
Three publications appear on -the
Smith campus. The Weekly, a news-
paper, contains only college news;
The Monthly, contains the literary
efforts of the women; The Campus
Cat appears, at irregular intervals in
the form of a "take-off" of some kind.
Tryouts and meetings for this maga-
zine are secret and the authors and
editors remain unknown until the endj
of the year. An official bulletin
similar in nature to Michigan's Daily
Official Bulletin is issued every Sun-
day and posted in all the houses.
A community Chest has been estab-
lished at Smith to care for all chari-
table contributions. Each student
pledges $12.50 and pays the subscrip-
tion on regular installments at stated
times. This general appropriationI
budget is favored by the women be-
cause it saves the annoyance of pay-
ing money constantly.
Sororities are not narrowing in-
fluences, not nearly so narrowing as1
unorganized groups generally are,
this student from a woman's college
maintains. "Cliques," she says, "are
inevitable anywhere. But sororities
get new members and cliques do not.
A clique grows up with a class and
maintains itself rigidly until the pass-
ing of that class; it is harder to get
into than any other kind of group be-
cause a clique is not looking for new
"I think that every single girl who
goes to an -eastern school, ought to
come out here just to get the different
viewpoint," said Miss Gilbreth. "There
is something different about it. I
felt it the minute I got off the train.
You know the girls in eastern schools
are brought up to think that there
isn't anything. west of the Atlantic
states; that all western universities
are insignificant institutions; and that1
all the good colleges are in the East."
As a final word Miss Gilreth added,
"While I believe that every eastern
girl should spend a year in the West
I likewise believe that every girl who
lives in the West should spend a year
in the East that they, also, may ob-
tain the different viewpoint."
Among the guests at the Zeta Tau
Alpha house over the week-end of the
Northwestern game were: Mrs. J. M.
Collins, '21, of Wyandotte, Mrs. I. J.
Turnbull, Miss Marjorie Stewart, Miss
Margarette Downs, and Miss Latta
