Acion I, Represeiitattvo 'Of Allj
Vioeni f on Campus; Pledge Will
Be Redeemed By T1eni
At a meeting of the board of direc-
tors of the Women's league held Sat-
urday, April 30, it was agreed that
the women of the University should
underwrite an additional pledge to
the League building fund to the
amount of $50,000 redeemable in
three years.
It has been the policy of the alum-
nae council from the beginning that'
the heaviest burden in the campaign
should be born by Ann Arbor and by
the undergraduate women in that
their immediate benefits would ex-
,ceed those in more remote parts,
and also to be a basis for appealing to
interested parties in other places. This
action on the part of the league board
is representative of all the women on
campus and will be redeemed through'
the efforts of all of them.
The undergraduate pledge for the
past year was $25,000 which has been
met and exceeded, through the con-
centrated efforts of the undergradu-
ate committee, the life membership
campaign and the special entertain-
ments such as the Sophomore Cir-
cus, the bazaar and the Junior Girls'
play. The present pledge will carry
over three years and with the interest
which has been shown this year
should be met with success.

British Isles, Belgium, France, Holland
Are In Michigan Open Road Itinerary

Michigan's Open Road tour for un-
dergraduate w a n en , originally
schedulcd for a trip through central
Eurone has been changed and an iti-
neraiy including two weeks in Eng-
land, an eight-day stay in Scotland,
several days at Holland and Belgium,
and fully two weeks in Paris and the
surrounding country has been sub-
Conferences with various women
students interested in a European
student tour revealed the fact that!
the majority of these were far more
interested in a trip such as outlined
above than in the previous central
Europe visit. As in the original plan,
13 women will be allowed to enter
the group which will be sponsored
by Miss Beatrice Johnson, of the of-
fice of advisors of women. The price
is slightly less than the former cost,
the entire sum, including aboslutely
everything outside of tips for per-
sonal service, being $860.00. Such
tips as those due the ship steward and
other assistants are already provided
This second tour was only made
available by the combination of the
Amherst and Dartmouth groups. Neces-
sarily the time left for organization
is limited and all acceptanIces must be
in Miss Johnson's hands by May 15.
The group will leave June 25 and re-
turn Sept. 17, having practically a
tlree months' stay.
Among the high spots of the period
in England is a motor-trip for three
days through the Lake district, re-
puted as one of the loveliest in the
world. London will be well covered,
while visits at Windsor Castle, Ox-
ford, and Stratford-on-Avon promise
to fulfill many a traveler's dream.
The eleventh day abroad seems par-

ticularly favored. It is scheduled
ror an all-day excursion to Loch Lo-
mond, the Trossachs, and Loch Kat-
rine of Scottish fame.
The program in Holland promises
a fascinating insight into the lives
if the people, since several old towns
will afford stopping places. Belgium
needs nothing better to offer than
Bruges, often called the Venice of
the North. And since no European
traveler would be satisfied without
a trip to the great battlefields, two
days will be spent in Ypres and the
surrounding country. Geneva will
play the host to the visitors for four
days following the departure from
It is almost futile to attempt to in-
clude France in a few sentences.
Cathedrals, feudal castles, stops at
Bourges and Tours are all a part of
the plans. Paris will just be Paris;
students, fashion, wealth, poverty,
gayety, the Paris of old times; pro-
vincial Paris. A performance at the
Opera, a party and informal dance, a
visit to a master of fashion, Paul Poi-
ret, Lucian Lelong, or Madeleine
Vionnet, with seats reserved for a
show of fall and winter models-these
are indicative of the social activities
in store for the. guests.
Throughout the trip the Americans
will be entertained by students of
the respective countries. More than
a third of the time has been left open
for personal initiative, so that the
program may be filled up as the group
desires. The ideal underlying the
trip is not a commercial one; inter-
national friendships and understand-
ing between undergraduates who will
someday have power in their various
countries is aimed at.
