Princess Cantacuzene Contrasts Life
.Of usslau StudentsWith That
t Of lAlcigan Students
w .


Since the. war the number of women
students in iRussia ha~s decreased un-
til -at present there are, practically
none enrolled in the Russian univer-
sities, explained Princess Cantacuz-
ene, contrasting conditions there with
those on the Michigan campus.
"Student life in Russia is much less
luxurious than here," she stated.
"Students in Russia find the situa-
tion very difficult as there is not
enough food to feed them. Receiving
a higher education on a starved men-
tality many find it a weight to carry
and are literally crushed by it. Before
- the war there were great numbers of
women students. Many of these upon
receiving their degrees entered the
medical profession or mathematics
where they were highly esteemed.
The position of women in Russian
business life was a high one for the
Russians have very scientific minds
and were quick to develop them.
"In the last seven years the country,
has been thrown in'to a chaotic state,"
continued Princess Cantacuzene," and
afl 6,the question isno° longer what kind
of work the women shall take up but
what work they can do that will en-
.able them. to get food. They are no
longer able to follow a profession
which they have chosen for the inter-
est they have in it but they are glad
to secure any work which will allow
them an existence."
She explained that since the revolu-
tion of 1917 there are only one-half
as many children attending schools as
there were under the old regime. In
order to fulfill their promise to edu-
cate all people the executives of the
new government took the children of
f the upper class and the bourgeois
from the schools to make room for
those of the lower classes.
S"Sincethat time there has been a
_ great' falling off-In attendance _a~f
the equipment has deteriorated a great
deal," she said, Three years ago,,
?many of, the professors were banish-
ed, with the result that the teaching
force is very inadequate.".
Speaking of the theaters in Russia,
-rincess Cantacuzene remarked that
they were thrown open to the prolet-
ariat at the beginning of the new re-
gime in order to amuse them. This
condition continued until the goyern-
ment could no longer afford to sup-
port them. At present many of the
actors have become refugees. A
number of artists, such as Chalapin,
have left Russia to make tours of
more prosperous countries.
"There are few young women in R
Russia who are happy now," she said
in conclusion. "With the existing
chaotic condition their spirits havef
been crushed.".

Physical Culture
Lauded By Little
President Clarence Cook Little re-
ceigly spoke beforo the women mem-
bers of the prdfessional school of
physical education at their assembly
in Sarah Caswell Angell hall. In his
address President Little emphasized
the necessity of a symmetrical de-
veopnenta of enta1 and hysical
qualities, and stated his belief that
mehta' and ihi'cal abilitie are in-
separable and dependent upon one
another. According to President Lit-
tle directors of physical education are
in an excellent position to influence
people to bring out the best there is
in them, through the emphasizing of
the two qualities. He explained the
existence of a plateau of development,
beyond which many people do not pro-
gress, and said that physical education
directors had the opportunity of help-
ing them pass beyond this plateau.
President Little explained his at-
titude regarding the possibilities of
carrying over certain qualties from
the athletic field, especially leader-
The assembly was one of the weekly
assemblies held, by the women of the
school of physical education. Each
class has charge of one program, and
the faculty also participates. The
school has adopted an alma mater
song, and each class is separately or-
ganized. Special ring are worn by
students of the school, silver rings
with a silver figure of the winged
victory mounted on a black back-
ground. Upon recommendation of the
faculty, senior students .may wear
gold rings of the same design. A
special seating arrangement is used
at the assemblies, the senior students
and faculty members being seated in
front, behind them the junior and
sophomore women, and then mem-
bers of the freshman class. The alma
mater song is sung at the beginning
of all assemblies, and the "Yellow and
Blue" at the close.
. All entry blanks for the intramuralt
swimming meet to be given at 7 o'clock
tonight atthe Y. M. C. A. should be
turned in at the physical education
offices today. Women may enter only
three 'of the four events, which are
relay, dash, diving, and follow the
leader, and no woman may enter both
the dash and relay. Four entrants are
necessary for each relay team.
Miss Annis Hall, of the physical
education department, has been in
1charge of the meet, andwill act as
referee. Dr. Margaret Bell, of the de-
ratmen wjl4 be startEr, and Miss
P u ineI odispn, Miss B. Louise Pat-
terson, and Miss Laurie Campbell, also
of the department, will be judges.
Florence Wofte, '27Ed, with assistants
will act as scorekeeper. Mary Ails-
house, '27Ed, will be clerk of the
Eunice Child, '28, will head the fol-
low the leader event, which has been
planned to include all sorts of water
Owing to the large number of en-
trants, no spectators can be accom-
modated at the meet, but the results
of the meet will appear in tomorrow's

Changes have been made in the
time of the Junior Girls' play tryouts
today and tomorrow. The tryouts
will be held from 83:45 to 6 o'clock
both days in Sarah Caswell Angell
hall instead of from 3 to 6 o'clock
as announced previously. This change
has been necessitated because of a
gymnnasiui 'class that is accustomed
'to meet in the hall.
The committee chairmen who will
judge the contestants are requestedI
to appear by 3 o'clock. Irene Field,[
chairman of the play, wishes to call
the attention of the junior women to
the fact that dues of $1 must be paid
before they are allowed the privileg'e1
to trying out. A table will be placed
at the entrance of Sarah Caswell
Angell hall for this purpose.
Sandwiches will be sold from 3 to
5 o'clock on the first floor of Barbour
gymnasium by the W. A. A. tea room
for all women rehearsing for thel
Junior Girls' play, according to Mar-
garet Purdy, '27, manager of the tea
room. However, if tea is desired by
those rehearsing, they may get it
downstairs in the tea room. In order
to carry out this plan, Miss Purdy
will require the 'assistance of more
women than she has helping her, atl
present, and she asks that any who
are interested in doing so, call her at
Sociology Club

Miss Suzanne Copeland, head of the
application bureau of the Community'
union in Detroit, will speak to the
members of the Sociology club at 8
o'clock tonight on the subject "Op-
portunity in Social Work." The meet-
ing is to be held at the Kappa Alpha
Theta house, 1414 Washtenaw.
