States Philippine W
Strict European In
Philippine customs are essentiallyj
those of America and Europe, accord-!
ing to Miss Maria Lanzar, a Philippine
student who is doing graduate work at
the University of Michigan, and who
explains this fact in the following
manner: "For the last 400 years the
Philippine islands have been almost
entirely under European government
and influence. Naturally European
customs have been adopted, and dif-
fer only in that there is more conven-
tion observed in the Philippines than
in either Europe or America."
Miss Lanzar went on to explain that
the old fashioned Philippine women
were like the Americans of 50 or more
years ago. There is also, she says,
the "new woman," the ultra-modern
type who is regarded with disfavor as
a general rule by the more con serva-
tive families. As an instance may be
cited the custom of always having
chaperone in promenades with young
men. Few young women consider it
proper to go out with a young man!
alone. It is perfectly correct if there
s a chaperone or a party of young
people, and only very fast sets consid-
er disregarding this formality. The
younger women while at home abide
by the old conventions, although
while here accept the freedom America.
offers them.
"The principal occupation of Phil-
ppine women is working on the great
anded estates. The natives are most-
y farmers, as the Philippine Islands
are not industrial. Women are gene-
rally considered to have ability in
business. The upper class women I
usually work at home, making beauti-
ul gold jewelry and embroidery for'
heir dresses. The peasant women
weave silk for clothes, or perhaps
work in factories. The Philippine

A great many women attend the "
College of Pharmacy, and, after theyl Fine Furs and Si
are graduated, open a drug store in
their homes. Whether or not they
marry, they have a good business to
support them for the rest of their
lives. Miss Lanzar rather regretted
this tendency, inasmuch as it made
the interests of the women narrow.
She explained that although they had
spent several years in college, they
usually knew nothing not pertaining
to their profession, and seemed-ac-
tually ignorant. The School of Edu-
cation also claims a great many
