Choosing Girls; 43 Women
Survive Tryouts
As a result of the tryouts which
have been held during the last week,
43 women have ben admitted to the
University Girls' Glee Club. Jt was
difficult to choose, there were so many
good voices, Miss Nora Cane Hunt
said, in remarking on the tryouts.
Many lovely second soprano voices
had to be rejected simply because they
were not able to sing independently.

Initiation services for 72 new wom-
en were held in Martha Cook building,
Sunday, Oct. 2. The speaker for the
occasion was Miss Emily Sargent of
Detroit. Miss Sergent was president
of the first group of girls who entered
in 1915, when the building was open-
ed and is now a member of the board
of governors.
Miss Sargent told of the days when
there were underclassmen as well as
juniors and seniors in the building.
In reminiscence, she recalled the
formal opening of Martha Cook. On
this occasion Governor Ferris, Presi-
dent James B. Angell, the deans of
the school and the architects of the
new building were present. The ban-
quet was held in the long corridor.
Later the students in Martha Cook
gave President Angell a birthday party
cn his 87th birthday. It was at this
time that the President dedicated the
fireplace in the Blue Room.
Martha Cook Alumnae are organiz-
ing in different large cities where

Co-Education Is Considered Dangerous M.E ATICLES ARE XV. A. A. Endeavors To Interest Women
In Japanese Schools, Says Dr. Nakao In Outdoor Sports, Says Miss McCl..
BeiCDrinAPflDvwnlMu ___- _

Co-ed ication is considered danger-
ous in Japan, according to Dr. Asa
Nakao who has come from the Tokio
Women's Medical College to study
public health.
"Thirty years ago in Tokio there
was one school, the Saisei Medical in-
stitute, which admitted women," the
small Japanese student stated. "The'
women were very misearble at this
college, were made to sit in the corn-
ers in the class rooms, and were look-
ed upon with disgust by the men. But
in 1901 coeducation was abolished as a
dangerous custom, leaving the 20
women medics without means of con-
tinuing their professional training.
"That the practice of medicine by
women, which was officially recog-
nized in 1885, (lid not disappear in
Japan was due to the efforts of Mrs.
Yayoi Yoshioka, now a very well
known woman in Tokio," continued
Dr. Nakao. "Mrs. Yoshioka, coming
to Tokio in her early youth, graduat-
ed from Saisei Institute in 1890, and,
although without material support
for such an adventure, she determined
to realize her ambition of establishing
a medical college for her countrywom-
"On September 5, 1901 this woman
doctor, assisted by her husband who
had been educated in Germany, found-
ed the Tokio Women's Medical school.
The first year only one woman grad-
uated and only a few attended the in-
stitution. It was a very poor school,,
the pupils sitting on the floor about
Mrs. Yoshioka, for there were no
funds to supply modern school equip-
ment. Often discouraged, Mrs. Yosh-
ioka fought against the common uni-
versal prejudice opposing colleges
for women.
"To increase the difficulties, the old
system which permitted anyone,

whether a college graduate or not, to
take the examination for medical prac-
tice, was disturbed by the law speci-
fying that applicants for examination
must be college graduates. Then, for-
tunately, the Russo-Japanese War
hastened the awakening of the na-
tion. Applicants for entrance to the
Women's Medical school increased and
the enrollment mounted to 200 stu-
dents. Through the persistent efforts
of Mrs. Yoshioka and her pupils, who
aided her in giving musical concerts
and other entertainments to raise
money, the maintenance of the school
was made secure.
"The supreme triumph came when
the school was recognized by the de-
partment of education and raised to
the rank of a college," Dr. Nakao said,
concluding the history of her Alma
Mater. "From an institution which
could scarcely afford to buy a miscro-
scope, Mrs. Yoshioka's school has
developed into the present Tokio
Women's Medical College, the only
medical college for women in Japan."
The Tokio Women's Medical College
is attended by 700 women including
more than 30 from China and others
from Korea and all parts of Japan.
The faculty consists of 25 professors
and 30 lecturers representing the most
learned men of the universities of Kao
and Tokio.
. Dr. Nakao stated that the Japanese
government desired to take over the
college, but Mrs. Yoshioka declined,
as it is her plan that after her retire-
ment the director. of the school shall
always be a woman from among the
"Mrs. Yoshioka is also ambitious to
raise the institution to the rank of a
university," Dr. Nakoa added, "on the
same level with the men's medical

"Most anything can happen in a I get started with my bag slung o



little game of golf," as the feminine
men of the Opera sang last Spring.
Yes, I agree: anything but the right
thing, which is, of course, making a
good score. The main thing that hap-
pens to me is the disappearance of
balls before my very eyes; and to
mention minor things, I have had my
head split open, and my ribs cracked,
all in a game of golf. But it's a great
game, as the saying goes, and doubt-.
less possesses many benefits. The
greatest of these is that it allows us
to walk.
Any chance observer would at once
note the great affinity of Michigan men
and women to walking, and although I
wouldn't dare to speak for my fellow
students I know that as for me, after
I have walked down to campus from

There are other benefits golf secures
to its partisans. To some, it gives an
opportunity for verbal self-expression.
For others, it is a fine chance to ex-
ercise their self-control. To some it
brings patience. Others learn from it
not to concern themselves with trifles.
In short, like the exercises that are at
the same time reducing and fatten-
ing, it cures any desirable quirks in
your temperament, no matter what
they are. By all means, take it up,
and emerge-the Perfect Woman!
Sophomore women at University of

the purpose of which is to encourage
entering women to observe traditions
of the school.
