All girls who are in any way affil-

by which term is usually meant an
outright gift in recognition of charac-
ter, ability, and contribution to the
University life, but it is amply pro-'
vided with funds for scholarship loans
to women.
From time to time interested people
have left bequests or made gifts to the
University specifying that the interest
from them should be available as
loans to the new students. There are
.22 such funds. Some designate that
the borrower shall be of a particular
school; for example, the Florence.
Huson Fund is directed for the usp of
women in medicine, the Alice Freeman
Palmer fund for women of the grad-
uate school, the Nurses' Scholarship

Women have loan funds in the Univer-
sity treasury. The latest fund to be
created is the Charlotte Blagdon Me-
morial established by the Women's
league in 1925 in recognition of Char-
lotte Blagdon's ideals. This loan is
available to a junior or senior who
shows unusual interest in campus ac-
tivities, has personality and scholar-
The funds are designed for aid of
seniors and graduates, although a few
make loans available to juniors, and
under extraordinary circumstances
applications of sophomores are consid-
ered. It is customary to require that
a woman shall have been matriculated
a year before she applies. Since they
are scholarship loans, an accpetable
scholastic record is required. The
University asks no security; the loans
draw interest at 5 per cent after the
date of maturity. The Committee on
student loans have learned that repay-
ment on the partial payment plan of
$10.00 per month works no hardship
to the borrower and almost eliminates
The report for the year September
1st, 1926 to September 1st, 1927 shows
that 76 loans.to women were made to
the total amount of $9850.00, as com-

since registratio nbegan this autumn
and a number are pending.
The cumulative good which a loan
fund accomplishes, is remarkable. For
example, the Lucinda Hinsdale Stone;
report to date shows that since 1904,
when the fund was established, 1521
women have borrowed $19,275.00'from
The question of' delinquency is
always asked, Since 1923, 233 loans
have been made of which number 11
amounts re.presented are of $18,350.00
lent, $840.00 has become overdue. De-1
linquency among women of Michigan,
if not entirely unknown, is at least
not a great factor. But there is an-
other consideration; of 39 loans made
in 1924-25, 16 were paid in full before
the date of maturity. Gratifying as
this is to the University, it must have
been equally as satisfactory to the 16
women who used amounts of from
$50.00 to $209.00 for periods from five
to 22 months and paid no interest.
Miss Grace Richards, who is in
charge of ' applications at the office;
of advisors to women, commented on
the situation: "It is not easy for a
girl to take the point of view that a
loan is an investment and not char-
ity. It is in no degree charity but a
perfectly businesslike arrangement by
which she may safeguard her health
or cut down\her part time work, or de-
termine to live freely enough to enjoy
some pleasures, perhaps in her senior
year since it comes but once. If she is
reasonably sure of a position, from
the salary of a teacher, a librarian, a
journalist, or a saleswoman, she can
repay the small amounts with only a
fraction of the sacrifice she would
make to struggle on through college
without help.
