Russia To Norway1

Ten foreign women of Michigan are
planning to take advantage of the
Christmas vacation planned for them
by Mrs. E. R. Van der Slice, of Lans-
ing, Mich.
Mrs. Van der Slice, who is a Mich-I
igan graduate as is her husband, Dr.
Van der Slice, has traveled around
the world and through her personal
initiative, thoughtfulness, and kind-
ness, is interested in placing foreign
women in American homes during the
Christmas holiday. She believes that
foreign women can not learn to know
real American family life through
teas and informal parties, and as one
step in remedying such a condition
she interests women in other cities to
open their homes to foreign students
who have not other Christmas plans.
The students are asked to state their
church and city preference and every
attempt is made to locate them in an
agreeable and happy home.
Of the ten students signifying their
desire to spend their holiday in anI
American home, four wish to go toI
Lansing, two to Detroit, one wishce
to experience the novelty of a farm,
and one desires to go to Battle Creek
because of the sanitarium.
Homes in Lansing, Detroit, Battle
Creek, Port Huron, Kalamazoo, and
Grand Rapids have been open to Mich-
igan foreign women. In each city a
cosmopolitan party is planned for all
foreign friends in that city. Aside
from that party, the women are free
to read or rest as they desire and
they are not asked to speak.

the world to hold such a position.

revolution Mme. Kollontay was an ex-
ile from Russia for her revolution-
ary views, and was living in differ-
ent parts of Europe., She learned to
speak French, English, German and
Italian as well as Russian. After the

executive committee of the Commun-
ist party. From 1917-18 she was head

sia in 1918-22, just before being sent
