would be interesting for everyone.
"The cooperation of a great many

work," stated Miss Deemer, "and the
true Christmas spirit was expressed
by their interest in others to the ex-
tent that they wished the hospital chil-
dren to have a happy Christmas.",
The workshop is a part of the social
service work carried on by the Uni-
versity Y. W. C. A. Anna Arnold, '27,

play. The title of this year's pro-.

From now on the Women's league
orchestra will play for any organiza-
tion for a small sum, according to
M argaret Purdy, '27Ed., new manager
of the orchestra. Anyone wishing to
engage the orchestra may do so by
calling Miss Purdy at 7717.
Since its organization early in the
fall, the orchestra has played for sev-
eral league functions where it has
proved very popular, and in addition
has given one radio concert. From
reports received by members of the
orchestra, it has been learned that the
concert was heard by people all over
the state of Michigan and even as far,
south as Missouri.
At the present time, the orchestra
has seven members. Gwendolyn Wil-
son, S. of M. besides being director
also plays the piano. Angeline Wil-

for various functons. Up to now they
have donated services free of charge.

Y. W. Secretary
States Purpose
Of Organization
"Creation of high ideals, develop-
ment of character and the opportun-
ity for service and training in leader-
ship is the purpose of the Y. W. C. A.,"
stated Miss Ruth Deemer, general sec-
retary of the University Y. W. C. A.
"The Y. W. C. A. in a college com-,
munity is a group of women who have,
voluntarily united in loyalty to a com-
mon purpose which is the determina-
tion to seek after and find a way of
life which is finer. It is a help in col-
lege and later to meet the problems of
life in a way satisfactory to themselv-
es. This was done through their ac-
tivities which are well known on the
"The social service work which is
carried on by the organization grows
out of this purpose" continued Miss
Deemer, "and the world fellowship
work, by recognizing the value of in-
terests, culture and tradition of other
countries, broadens the life of women
by developing interest in and contact
with women from these countries.'
"A set of standardsh helping fresh-
men adjust themselves to life in a
large state university is given by the
leadership commission and practice in
the development of qualities of real
leadership. It fits them to meet the
problems in a large university and de-
velopes friendships" said Miss Deem-
"The community service is unique"
stated Miss Deemer. "While in col-

lege students become divorced from
their home town and have no contact
with a community. They are a part
of the campus, but they are going in-
to a community after they are out of
college and they should have the con-
nection by social service work while
they are in college. The Y. W. C. A.
presents a real opportunity for serv-
ice and is worth while" stated Miss
Deemer in conclusion.
