For MNitol Work's Lecture
On Bridge at Union
Tickets for the Milton C. Work pro-
gram, which have been on sale at
Wahr's bookstore since Thursday,
October 27, are reported as being
much in demand. More than 150
tables have been arranged for and de-
mands for places at them are contin-
ually coming into Wahr's and also in-
to the-Alumnae office.
Mr. Work comes to Michigan direct-
ly from the Pacific toast where his
time is in such demand that it was
only with difficulty that he could ar-
range- to give five days to this state.
Mr. Work will commence his tour in
Kalamazoo on October 25, going from
there to Battle Creek on the 26th. He
will be in Ann Arbor, October 27, Lan-
sing, October 28, and Jackson on
October 29.
The proceeds of the tour will be
turned into the Women's league build-
ing fund by the committees in charge
at the various places, Michigan wom-
en having charge in each of the five,
places. The visit of the international-
ly known bridge expert promises to be
one of the biggest events in the tiro-
gram of the fund raising campaign of
the Women's league this year."

Stresses "Caution" in Using Genetic
The keynote of the general sugges-
tions received was "caution." The
general warning is to proceed with
the greatest care and conservatism un-
til more data it forthcoming. This is
suggested in order to" prevent eugen-
ics from becoming sensational and
pseudoscientific. The need of further
research is cilphasized, and some sug-
gested the introduction of eugenics
into earlier phases of education
through physiology courses in high
schools and general s"ience and bio-

Woman's place is in the home but
not necessarily her own home, accord-
ing to women Fasciti organizations
which are training several hundred
thousand girls and women for produc-
tive occupations closely connected
with domesticity.
Italy's need for nurses will have
been satisfied within a few years as
five thousand have been graduated in
special courses and 35,000 more are
being trained. More than 100,000
women are being instructed as scien-
tific farmers with the intention of re-
lieving men of such work as animal
breeding, truck gardening, fruit farm-
ing and horticulture of all types.
The most far-reaching of the six
roles assigned to women by II-Duce
-the others being propagandistic,
sanitary, agricultural, scholastic and
pirotocQion of home products-is
"moral tutelage of labor," which
means that social work among labor-
ing classes of both sexes is their
Despite the tact that the principle,
of Fascism is to keep women out of
political activity it is pointed out that
they have equal rights in "politics" of
the new national labor unions. In
several unions women have command-
ing positions. Some say that women
will be permitted to be deputies when
the present chamber of deputies, con-
forming with Mussolini's plan, is
transformed into a "chamber of labor"
representingthe.productive popula-
tion of geographical regions.

Women Should Face'
Decisive Problems,
Says Carrie . Catt1
"More would be accomplished if
women would concentrate on some of'
the larger problems facing the coun-
try and pay less attention to the
minor 'matters," said Mrs. Carrie
Chapman Catt at a gathering of 60
Nvomen prominent in business or civic,
affairs, recently.
"Two of the most important are the;
spoils system and the proportion of I
crooks to honest people,' Mrs. Catt
said. "One is - illustrated in Major
Mill's article in Collier's on enforce-
ment conditions. What he proves is
that enforcement is difficult because
enforcement officers belong to the
spoils system. All parties have it. It
is universal and in itself a menace to
democracy and a disgrace to our
"Another thing prohibition h a s
brought us is the revelation that we.
are a nation of a great many crooks,
thieves and people without honor. It
has not made the crooks; it has simp-
ly lifted the curtain and revealed what
we are," Mrs. Catt concluded.
Mrs. Catt then urged that the presi-
-dents of all. the women's organizations
should meet and discu1ss the more
vital question. After that, she sug-
gested, the number of organizations .
could be reduced and made more effi- 1

.Laboratory study, stressed by scien-

that genetics should be a prerequisite
to the study of eugenics and 90 per
cent would insist on laboratory ex-

Portia literary society seeks to in-1
elude in its programs opportunity for
practice in public speaking, dramatics,
and informal discussions on questions
of popular interest. Women who be-
come members of such literary groups
as Portia and Athena obtain the ben-
efits to be derived from organizations
similar to the English university clubs
composedl of persons who are interest-
ed in sonic aim which all members
have in common. Like the English
groups, also, Portia offers to its. mem.-
hers a social group life which is com-
bined with the informal discussions
to which each member contributes his
share throughout the year.

Little said: "I believe the thing that
is really importantdfor eugenics is
the cultivationof dispassionate in-
quiry' as a habit of mind or at Y'east
respect for it; this depends on in-
struction in science particularly in
biology and it requires laboratory
courses, else the whole matter is un-
real. If this is taken care of through
courses in physiology and genetics,
the "application" will take care of it-
In concluding, the committee of-
fered several suggestions as to the
proper approach in the teaching of
such subjects, the general aim of
which was "a scientific method of
studying things in their genesis andl
wider causal relations."

"Moving pictures taken in the larg-
er universities of the United States
are fast becoming an important factor
in displaying of a true conception of
university life before the American
public," says Herbert L. Connelly,
Alumni Secretary of Wesleyan Uni-
versity at Middleton, Conn. Mr. Con-
nelly has made a survey on this sub-
ject, the results of which are an-
nounced in a recent number of the
Amateur Movie Makers.
Over 57 American Universities, In-
cluding Michigan, have determined to
incorporate movies in a scheme for
securing financial aid, attracting new
students, gaining the interest of the
Alumni, and for creating new and
greater interest in their institutions
in general.
An article entitled "The Traveling
Campus" also states that due to the
use of this new movie system the cam-
pus mountain has actually come to
the graduate Mohammed, and an-
other movie miracle is recorded. Al-
though Michigan is still contemplating
the project, 16 other universities are
now producing complete scenarios
consisting of campus scenes, atheltic
events, alumni reunions, pictures of
interesting people connected with the
university, and special events.
The prospective student will, in this
way, have a chance to learn something
of the actual life in the university
that he contemplates entering. The
absurd conception of college life
which is held by many Americans can,
in time, give way to a realistic picture
of what students are doing, on the
campuses. the filmf will be sent to
various cities to be shown and the in-
stitutions themselves may exchange

According to Miss Dorothy Ketcham
