As a result of effort upon the part
of the French department of the Uni-
versity an innovation in the form of a
"Maison Francaise" will be establish-
ed on this campus next year. The
plan will be carried out by establish-
ing a women's league house which will
be restricted to women students in-
terested in French. That the purpose
of the restriction may be carried out,
it is announced that only French willl
be spoken by the residents, and that
the house head will be a native of
France.!
Both Miss Alice Lloyd, chairman ofj
the committee of advisors of women,
and President Clarence Cook Little
are actively interested in the experi-
ment. The plan was announced yester-
day in the French classes and many
of the details were described. It was
announced that those who did not wish
to live in the house might make ar-
rangements to board there. This ar-
rangement is open to men as well'
as to women students.
In addition plans for prospective
dances were outlined. At these affairs,
it is planned to make the speaking
