BUILDING TO BEGIN SOON
Returning from Chicago, Thursday,
where she consulted with architects
concerning the new Women's league
building, Mrs. W. D. Henderson an-
nounces thi the plans for the new
building are completed, while the
specifications are almost ready to go
out to the contractors, assuring that
the construction of the building
should: start within six weeks.
While in Chicago, Mrs. Henderson
received gifts from Dr. Karl K. Koess-
ter, husband of the late Jessie Horton
Koessler, author of the map of Ann
Arbor, which has been sold for the
benefit of the Women's league, and
from Mrs. Koessler's brother, George
Horton, which insure the library of
ithe new building being set aside as a
memorial. The library will be 'as a
memorial to Mrs. Koessler and will be
known as the Jesse Horton Koessler
lbrary. This gift from the family of
Mrs. Koessler is augmented by a gift
fromethe Chicago group of Michigan
womrre n.
Mrs. Koessler graduated from the
University of Michigan in 1901. Up-
onl her graduation she enteredl the
RusliMeiral college in Chicago and
graduated from there in 1904. From1
Chicago, Mrs. Koessler went to Parisi
where she attended the Pasteur Insti-
tute, doing graduate research work.
While in Paris she met her husband,
and for many years she was associated
with him in scientific research in
medicine..
Recently g i v i n g up scientific
work she became interested in art, es-
pecially in murals, and took up this
study under several notable artists.
Several of her studies have been ac-
cepted in Paris. Mrs. Koessler's death
came in January, 1927.
Mrs. Koessler was the first Michigan
woman to make a gift of any size into
the Women's league building fund. De-
tails for the memorial are not yet
worked out but everything, according
to Mrs. Henderson, will be done to
bring out the dignity and loyalty ex-
presseml in the life of Mrs. Koessler.

Betsy Barbour Dormitory is very
fortunate in having for its new direc-
tor Miss Mary L. Lytle, a graduate of
Bryn Mawr College in Pennsylvania.
Dur~ng the past two years Miss Lytle
has made several unusual trips, among
them a long Mediterranean cruise, a
trip last winter to Cuba and the Caro-
linas, and this summer a round trip on
the great lakes on a large ore freight-
er. Miss Lytle says she found the
Mediterranean cruise the most enjoy-
able, as it was the most extensive and
varied.
Miss Lytle sailed from New York,
February 9, 1926, on the Empress of.
France of the Canadian Pacific Steam-
ship Company. The first landing was
at Madeira, a city in which she noted
that, although situated on a semi-
tropical island, there were no vehicles
with .wheels. Instead, sledges with
greased runners are pulled by oxen
over the soapstone pebbles with which
the streets are paved. A snowless to-
boggan slide down a 3,300 foot moun-
tain provides one of Madeira's most
novel and thrilling attractions.
The party then visited Portugal,
Spain, and Algiers, which Miss Lytle'

remembers as the first really Oriental
city. The trip continued to Syra('use,
Athiens, Constant tinojde a :nI I the Black
Sea, lialetine and y ii , i iad two
weeks in Egypt. The ship then cross-

WOMEN MAY TAKE
CORRECTIVE GYM
in order to encourage the practice
of good posture and to cure foot de-
fects, the department of Physical Edu-
cation is this year stressing its plan
of offering to women, classes in indi-
vidual and corrective gymnastics.
The classes, which are held on Wed-
nesday at the hours, 11, 2, and 4
o'lock, are composed mostly of fresh-
man and sophomore women, although
they are open to upperelass and grad-
uate women as well. In fact Miss
Rawlings, who has charge of the class-
es says, "We want all the girls to feel
that we are here to help them if they
want to be helped."
One hour a week is being devoted to
this work by those girls who have so
far enrolled in the classes. Enroll-
ment is entirely voluntary on the part
of the girls and does not count toward
fulfilling the hours of gymnasium
work required of freshman and sopho-
more women.
Of special interest in regard to this
work of the physical education depart-
ment,,is the installation in the gymna-
sium of a 'silhouettegraph' which, by'
pictures made from time to time,
shows the results of the department's
efforts.

MICHIGAN WOMEN
LAG IN POLITICS
Michigan women are lagging behind
in the interstate competition for po-
litical prominence, statistics show,
Ruth McCormick of Illinois, widow of
the late Congressman Medill McCor-
mick, announced her candidacy for
Illinois congressman-at-large. If
Mrs. McCormick should succeed in
winning a seat in the house of Repre-
sentatives she will be the second Illi-
nois woman to appear in congress. In
women's political history, eight have
appeared in congress. The first con-
gresswoman was Miss Jeannette Ran-
'kin of Montana, who was elected in
1916. Since that time the following
have held seats In the house or the
Senate: Mrs. Huck of Illinois, Mrs.
Nolan of California, Miss Robertson
of Oklahoma, Mrs. Norton of New
Jersey, Mrs. Rogers of Massachusetts
and Mrs. Felton of Georgia. It is
time that the women of Michigan
stepped forth in the political world.
said because the women are to be
the future mothers and teachers of
all mankind." Miss Tagore made this
statement in one of a series of lectures
at the World Federation of Educa-
tion convention, held this year in
Toronto, Canada. She is primarily
interested in the educational better-.
ment of the women of India. She
is very prominent among the people
in India, being president of the Wo-
men's Iklucational Societies of India,
and the head of a small primary
school in Calcutta.
"I came to this country to study
educational methods,'! s'tats Miss
Tagore, "and to take back something
to my own people." She thinks that
American people have the wrong idea
of Hindu women. They are not "down
trodden," nor the "playthings of, men"
as is the common opinion. In olden
times women of India talked with men
concerning philosophy, and music, and
political situations, and they are just
as capable now as they were then.
"What India does lack in," she
says, "is a real educational system
for women: only one per cent of the

TR-Y NEW CURE FOR
MENTALLY|DERANGEU
Interesting experiments directed to-
ward curing the mentally deranged
are being tried out at the Kankakee
state hospital for the insane. The
psychiatry department has instituted
a beauty parlor at the hospital. Pa-
tients who formerly fought any at-
tempt at cleaning up are now calmly
submitting to, baths, shampoos, hair
cuts, facial massages, and manicures
Some of the patients have fought
their way back to mental healti
through learning the art of beauty
culture. Since the beauty parlor wa
opened, twenty-two girls have left th(
institution, able to adapt themselve i
to conditions in the outside world
These results forcibly refute the the-
ory that loss of personal pride is the
inevitable accompaniment of a failing
mind.

"Journalism is a fitting profession
for women, and women are fitted for
journalism." This is the opinion of
Mrs. J. C. Mack of Newton, Kansas.
Mlrs. Mack is the daughter of Noble
Prentiss, former editor of the Kansas
City Star. She is recognized as a very<
capable journalist by others in the
f(id.
In speaking of women's qualifica-
tions for this profession, Mrs. Mack
saild that they were better spellers
than men, and more careful in their
grammar. Women look out for de-
tails, and observe the four 'W's'-why,i
where, what, and who. Women also
have good memories, and can give a(
hunman interest touch to a story, that(
a man could not.
Mrs. Mack further said that the flap-
per type was not fitted for journal-j
ism, nor for any other profession.t
Because dignity is needed in a profes-
sion, and because a flapper lacks dig-
nity, she does not make a good news-i
paper woman.
Mrs. Mack pointed out that she was
making these statements from thes
angle of "Womenin Journalism" and
not from any wish to discredit the men
in the profession.
