National Y. W. C. A. Makes Plans For
Pilgrimage To Foreign Edu.
cational Centers
Another student pilgrimage to Eu-
rope has been arranged by the execu-
tive committee of the National Y. W.4
C. A. for this coming summer, open
to members of the movement who
wish to know students in other coun-
tries and who would like to know,
some of the political, economic, social,
religious problems of Europe, as they
affect students. Information regard-
ing the proposed trip has been receiv-
ed by Miss Ruth Demer, secretary of
the University Y. W. C. A.
The party will sail from New York
either on June 23 or 26 and will be
due in England on June 29 or July 4.1
The return sailing from France will
be' on August 28, due in New York
on Sept. 6. The party will be to-
gether during the time of the ocean
trips, at the sessions of a conference
of the British Student Movement in
England, and of the International Stu-
dent Service in Jugoslavia. The rest
of the time the plan is to divide the
'party which will consist of 24 into two
groups of 12 each and have them fol-
low different itineraries. In all of the
countries they will meet student
groups and visit the colleges. In Eng-
land theydwill visit both Cambridge
and Oxford.
It is hoped that the personnel of the
party can be determined by Feb. 1, in

America, according to a poll of thej
leading women and men in the coun-
try. Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt. so-
cial, political, and philanthropic lead-j
er, ranks second, while Mary Roberts
Rhinehardt wins third place.
The contest was the result of a
table conversation at which a certain
name was brought up as that of the
most interesting woman in the coun-
try. In the following discussion nol
three of the people present could
agree as to who could claim the dis-
tinction.. Finally the names of 1,000
persons were selected from Who's
Who, 500 men and a similar number
of women, each state being represent-
ed according to population.
Those chosen were asked to name
the woman in America whose career
had been the most colorful, and who,
either by surroundings, achievements,
in art, literature, society, or public
service appeals to them the most;
who in their judgment would have the
most interesting story to tell and
would make the most interesting table
Out of the 130 names sent in, Miss
Addams easily led the field. Her
works at Hull House has brought her
the admiration-of men and women all
over the country, and the number of
votes that she received bore testim-
ony to the esteem in which she is

Plan Party For
Entering Women
Preliminary plans for a party to lo
given for women entering the Uni-
versity in February were made at a
meeting of the honor council, Monday
afternoon in Barbour gymnasium. Al-
teouh wmen who enter in the fall
4are overwhelmed with attentions from
all organizations on campus whose
purpose it is to make the freshmen
feel at home, those who enter in the
middle of the year are rather neglect-
ed on that score. It is the purpose of
the honor council to remedy this sit-
nation and it will make every effort
to successfully reach these women.

may specify which of the two groups
they wish to travel in..
A letter from Kate Sawyer, '25,
who went on the student trip last sum-
mer has been received here, in which
she tells of her pleasant experiences
in some of the other countries. "Leip-,
sic was one of our happiest and mosta
valuable experiences," states Miss'
Sawyer. "The fineness of those Ger-
man students and the reception they
gave us was an inspiration.

Few of the prominent stage or

the few mentioned.'
