American And Norwegian Women Shov
Striking Contrast, Says Birgit Foss


"Norweigian women are more inter-
ested in sports than are American
women," says Miss Birgit Foss, who
arrived in Ann Arbor from Oslo, Nor-
way, two weeks ago to spend a year
here as classifier in the main library.
Miss Foss was in America five years
ago, and studied at the New York
State Library School. She was also
employed on the staff of the Cleveland
public library. For the last three
years she has servedon the staff of
the public library of Oslo.
"In Norway," says Miss Foss, "you
would not find women going in large
numbers to a football game as they do
here. The Norwegian woman is more
interested in taking part in sports
than in watching them.
"This is especially true of skiing,
the Norweigian sport. This sport is
enjoyed throughout the long northern
winter, and quite as many women as
men participate in it. Last year there
was skiing in June, but that was an
exceptional case."
According to Miss Foss, tobogganing
is another favorite sport among the
Norweigian women. It has been de-
veloped almost to an art in that coun-
try. The toboggan slopes. are not
straight but have sharp turns. The
only means of steering the toboggan
is a six-foot pole held under the
arms. At the turns in the path there
is constant danger of being spilled out,
and the sport is frafght with danger.
Nevertheless, it is regarded as great
fun, and just as many-if not more-
women than men take part in it.
"Walking," remarks Miss Foss, "is
greatly enjoyed by Norweigian wom-
en. When there is no snow they goI
for a long walk every Sunday from 9
or 10 o'clock in the morning until 61
o'clock in the afternoon.
"The Norwegian woman's interest
in sport is undoubtedly one important
reason for her splendid health. She is,
more sturdy looking than the Amer-
ican woman, and has naturally rosy
cheeks. Norwegian women are even
more healthy than Danish women,
who are interested chiefly in indoor
gymnastics and do not ski."
Miss Foss explains that Norway was
the first European country to grant
universal woman suffrage. This was
achieved in 1913. Since that time sev-
eral women have been elected to the
Storting-the Norwegian parilament.
Women in Norway are especially ac-
tive in social and educational work
and in legislation affecting women and
children. They seek to better living
conditions for the poorer people and
to establish children's homes and
mothers' pensions.
"There is more respect for wom-
en here in America than in Scand-
inavia," observes Miss Foss. "There
the old continental ideas prevail. In
some sections it is not customary for
women unattended to go about on the

downtown streets iftci S or 9 o'clock.

interested in higher education is evi-
denced by the fact that they have en-
tered the colleges in such grat num-,
hers that an effort is now being made
to interest them in specialized and
techincal fields rather than in a gen-
eral education. While Norwegian
women show a great deal interest in
medicine, they are entering all pro-I
fessions, and in this they differ littie
from American women.
"It should be pointed out," says
Miss Floss, "that in Norway there is
a sharp distinct i on bet weed- a college
and a university. 'he university re-
sembles more closely the American
grailuate school, while the college is{
