Eujopean Studsntl Will Be Hosts To'
Tourist Groups; Itinerary Will
'over Favored Spots
In view of the fact that much en-
thusiasm and interest is being shown
in the Onen Road tour for Michigan
women students, the committee wishes
to announce that all formal applica- i
tions for one )if;tie thirteen places'
Sopen for the trip must be in the handsE
of Miss Beatrice 1'ohnson, of the -of-
fie of advisers to women, no later
1than Saturday of this week.
It is well that many women who
have expressed a desire to accompany
the group on its European voyage do
not realize that their applicationsl
must be in at this early date.
Plans have already been made on
the part of the European student
hosts and hostesses and preparations
are under way for the reception of
the group. An itinerary forwarded by
the National Student Federation ofr
America gives a brief idea of the ar-
rangements for each day, although
fully a third of the time has been left;
open to personal initiative.-
The thirteenth day, which accord-
ing to superstition should be gloomy,1
presents a different aspect when plans,
read as follows: (Scotland) accom-
panied by Edinburgh students, the
whole day will be spent in visits to
the Castle; the Royal Mile; Holyrood
Palace; the Scott Monument. Here,
too, the group will be entertained at
The twentieth day, which takes place
in England, will be spent at Oxford,'
"the world-famous university, that
home of lost causes, with its spires1
cutting the sky, its ancient serene
quadrangle, its dark rooms full of'
portraits of England's illustrious dead
who were once students in its halls."
The Hague will be the scene of the
2&th day, and there in the evening
with Dutch students a trip is schedul-
ed to the beadho ut Scheveningen:
swimming, dinner, open discussion,
and dance.
A rowing party ,with Belgian stu-
dents around and in Bruges, the Ven-
ice of the North, with a stop at the
"Lac d' Amour," will occupy the after-
noon of the 36th,, Y.
Five days will e spent in Geneva,
the International Student Center. The
program for this period has not as
yet been announced.
Versailles is the heading for the
51st day. The trip will be made by .mo-
tor with French ,students. From Paris.
the car will take the road through
the woods of St. Cloud. Sunday is'
chosen as the day when all the foun-
tains are playing, if possible, the
trip will be arranged when there is an
evening fete in the park.

Miss Etta L. Taggart
Miss Taggart, native of Washington,
is the first woman to be elected to
the bar association of the District of
Columbia. She is the daughter of the
late T. Taggart, for fourteen years
special assistant to the United States
attorney general.
After a ten-month test, the frater-
nity and sorority cooperative buying
association at the University of Iowa
has been pronounced a success by
Thomas E. Martin, business manager
of the organization.
Speaking in favor of the association
Martin stated that the average frat-
ernity and sorority does not try con-
sci ntiously to keep accounts, and
that the cooperative buying associa-
tion not only assists the fraternities
in their buying but helps them to
outline budgets.
On the Wisconsin and Illinois cam-
puses a method of fraternity buying,
called the Warner system, is employ-
ed. At Iowa', however, a new and
somewhat unique system has been de-
vised. The fraternities and sororities
that are associated with the coopera-
tive organization are assessed five
dollars per year per person.
The object of- the cooperative buy-
ing system is to stabilize fraternity
finance and to assist fraternities
which plan a building program or fi-
nancial reorganization.
Each of the Iowa fraternities asso-
ciated with the organization has
shown a saving in the food-stuffs pur-
chased through the agency. Foods are
not bought from the university, but at
university rates.
