Prof. ,lobert Wenley Of Philosophy
Department Addresses Group
Coterning Work
The attitude of rien toward women
students in the universities and col-
leges in England is much better than
in our own national educational in -
stitutions, according to Professor
Robert Wenley, head nof the philoso-
phy department, in a talk to the
members of the Ann Arbor branch of
.American Association of University
Women at their meeting held yester-
fday afternoon at Martha Cook build
Professor Wenley told in an ex-
ceedingly interesting manner the ro-
mantic story of the growth of educa.-
tion in England. The story generally
related about educational 'facilities in
England has been greatly exaggerat-
ed. It has been compared to Scotland
'which has had universal education
since 1870, while in England no such
facilities existed, and there were only
three universities, which were at-
tended only by the sons of members
of the privileged class. "But this,"
says Prof. Wenley, "is only part of
the story. There are now 12 large
universities in 1ngand, 9 of which
have been founded since 1880, and
the most recent was begun in 1926,
such progress shows that England is
by no means at a standstill."
The first non-residential and non-
sectarian university was founded in
1827, but was never granted a char-
ter,~thus not being able to confer de-
grees. Shortly following this, in 1836
was the founding of the University
College, an entirely governing body.
"The call, for education of a higher
level," asserted Prof. Wenley, "was
small, and there was no desire for
a system of national education." Un-
til the introduction of the system of
primary education by Robert Lowe in
1870, educational growth was re a-
tively stagnant. This system, how-
ever, followed by a similar secondary
system stimulated the desire for uni-
versal education, and almost immed-
'iately a growth was noticed..
Victoria University was the first
Federal university, which was later
divided into three, Manchester, Liver-
pool, and Leeds universities. One in-
spired the other, and in a spirit of
friendly rivalry several large univer-
sities were founded. Prof. Wenley ex-
plained the distinction between Ox-
ford and Cambridge and other uni-
versities. Men attending the two
larger universities are being trained
for national service, while the small-
er ones train more definitely for lo- I
cal service.
As to the opportunities for women,
Prof. Wenley stated that until recent-
ly there had been no opportunities
for women in universal education,
" and that there had been no call for
it. The first great school for women
was Cheltenham College, founded in
1854, and many others followed this.
All universities in England are co-
educational, and men and women all
come together in societies. The total
number of students in the united
kingdom is 41,794, of which 12,881 are
John Lan gdon Davis claims in his
new book "A Short History of Wom-
en," that women have been victims of
superstition through the ages.

"American people have the queer-
est. ideas of our fashions," said Shu
Ting Liu, Chinese student in an in-
terview yesterday. "They think our
styles never change, and they picture
us always in pajamas, with flowers
for head dress. I think perhaps our
styles change more than yours do."
She pointed to the sleeve of the
dress she was wearing. "From the
niew students, I ;hear that small
sleeves, like this,, half way between
the elbow and the wrist, are fashion-
able' today, not the sleeves of several
years ago, that you picture us as
wearing, whose ends hung clear way
"Our materials change with the
seasons, as yours do, but more often,
I think. Here, you wear one .fur coat
for all winter. We change our fur
coats for every season of the win-
ter." She laughed. "I doubt if you
think of us even as having any win-
And fashions vary in different parts
of the country. In the north, in Pe-
king, the short skirt, so favored in
the south, and 'S'hanghai, is consider-
ed most immodest, which attitude
may be the more emphasized because
of the existing trouble' between the
two parts of the country.
Shanghai is the fashion center of
China. There, Western styles are fa-
vored. The bridal costume of the oc-


cident with its veil, is usually used,
not only there, but all over the coun-
try, and the formal dress of a man.
is the same severe black and. white
suit that Paris decrees. The formal
dress of a woman denotes the social
position of her husband; Mandarin
coats beautifu)ly embroidered and
tiecorated were used when. Shu Ting!
Liu left her country four years 'ago.
In general, older fashions, decreed by
custom, are worn for formal, by wo-
Of course the styles for students
and society, differ greatly. For the
former they are much simpler. The
elaborate head dress used for formal
wear by society is never used. And
colors used in dress are much
Some years, plain silks are used,
but usually the materials express-
change in style, more by change in
design and decoration. "For shoes,
we wear many slippers like those
you wear, here, as well as the em-
broidered silk ones of our own coun-
try. And of course you know, styles
of the married woman are different
from those of the unmarried woman,
as well 'as those of one class from

In the Freshman volley ball tourna-
ment the games have been re-scheduled
and the groups combined in order to
guarantee two full teams out for every
game. There are now nine full
teams with at least six players. The
new ruling of the tournament is that
any group which is not able to get the
minimum number of six members out
for a game will be oblidged to default
to its opponent. Last week out of
four games there was only one default.
It has been arranged that all the
games will be played on Wednesday
and each team will play one. Attend-
ance under the new arrangements is
proving much more encouraging and
as it is much more interesting to the
women to come out to play a good
game with a full team, than one with
only two or three players on a side.
Last Wednesday, Group I was de-
feated by Group III with a score of
10-39, Group II lost to Group IV, 51-
12, and Group VIII defaulted to Group
VII. Friday, the only game played
was between Group $I and Group III

Here on campus the outstanding fra-

'day evening at the Sigma Alpha Ep-
silon house at which a large portion
of the remaining students attended.
Another party which attracted a
great deal of attention was held on
the same evening at the Collegiate

guests were present for the evening
