To Stimulate Interest In Reading
And To Offer Individual
Wider Field
The freshman class of the Univer-
sity Hospital School of Nursing has
"adopted" the fiction library of Cou-
zens Hail and through it will work out
special educational projects. Plans
are being made to build up an excel-
lent and well chosen fiction library.
The present library, although still
small, has a complete set of Conrad
and is starting 'a collection of Kipling.
To aid in their work the freshmen
have formed a book group, which will
put their ideas into active form. The
group is working out a method of
classifying and catalouging the books,
which will be both simple and effi-
At the last meeting of the class the
freshmen voted to join the "Book a
Month Club," which furnishes the sub-
scribers with reviews of the outstand-
ing books of each month. Upon pay-
ment of a fee the subscriber is en-
titled to receive the book which is
considered by the critics who sponsor
the club to be the finest fiction of the
month. This book will be put into
circulation in the library of Couzens
Hall. At the monthly class meetings
five-minute book reviews are to be
It is the purpose of the class to
stimulate in this way a greater in-
terest in reading, and to bring before
* the school a wider knowledge of the
best fiction, in such a way that it will
become a part of the everyday life ofl
an increasing number of students.
Special attention is to be paid to the
books of dramas and poetry in the
library in hope of making them an im-
portant part of the collection.
Further plans are being made by the
book groupato put on a newspaper
project which will encourage students
to get the "newspaper habit." The
details- of this project are yet to be
worked out, but tentative plans have
been thoght of,. which include stunts,
and other unique ways of stimulating;
' interest in current news.
The book group will comprise the
freshman unit of the literary club
which is in the process of organiza-
tion in the School of Nursing. The
chairman of the group is Ella For-
quer, '30, who has as assistants Mar-
ian Hassness, '30, and Bernice Ferg-
uson, '30.
League To Benefit
By SaleOf Gloves
Mortarboard's annual sale of gloves
will be held today and tomorrow in
University hall near the candy booth.
In addition, they are being exhibited
at the various dormitories, sororities,
and league houses. The proceeds of
+ the sale are donated to the Women's
league building fund.
Anyone who would like to buy
gloves, and is not reached through
other channels, is asked to call Jose-
phine Norton, '28, at 2-1752.

Southern colleges, some private strain. During the hockey and has-

schools and small universities are in-
cluded in the list of those sponsoring
extra-mural sports for women. The
University of Maine has had a varsi-
ty teams in hockey for five years and
in basketball for about fifteen years.
They have played such opponents as
Sargent, Connecticut Agricultural
College, and state normals as well
as women's athletic clubs. It is be-
lieved that competition in making the
university team provides greater in-
centive for the development of skill
in cooperative athletics, rapid mental
and physical coordination, self-con-
trol, and resourcefulness.
In an attempt to overcome one of
the main objections to intercollegiate
games for women, namely, that they
tend to benefit the few of advanced
abilities rather than encourage the
many women of mediocre skill, the
University of Maine has organized in-
ter-class competitive sports for those
who are proficient but not sufficiently
adept to make the varsity teams. Thus
it is maintained, that all are provided
with opportunities for participating in

In former years very little interest
was shown even among the women in
intercollegiate sports, the attendance
at games being small. The men on
the Maine campus gave no support to
this activity of the women and gen-
eral enthusiasm lagged. Recently,
however, it is stated that under the
leadership of the present coach, in-
tercollegiate sports for women have
gained in popularity and are being
carried on successfully.
In an article printed in a late At-
lantic Monthly, it was declared that
one of the advantag'eous features of
the educational programs at the east-
ern women's colleges, such as Vassar,
Smith, Barnard, and Mount Holyoke,
was that the school year is not in-
terrupted by intercollegiate athletics.
Interclass contests are encouraged
rather than extra-mural activities.

Until 1914 women were not allowed
to attend Oxford. Later they were
allowed to take courses but no de-
grees were awarded. At the present
time the number of women admitted
to Oxford is limited, although degrees
are awarded to those graduating.
Professor Quibley explains this
omission by stating that at the time
that the will o2 Cecil Rhodes was
written women were not admitted to
Oxford, and that therefore no provi-
sions have been made for them to re-
ceive the awards.

Feminine Beauty Is
Subject Matter Of
Rubenstein's Book,
Mme. Helena Rubenstein, whose
book, "Feminine Beauty: the Aesthet-
ics, Cosmetics, and Dietetics of Its
Preservation," was published last
month, is widely known in Europe
and America as an authority on beau'
ty culture.
The subject matter of her book is
not limited to a study of physical
beauty. It also embraces the subject
of beauty as a social force as repre-
sented in literature and the other arts
and by concrete examples of living
personifications of beauty. The de-
velopment of various forms of treat-
ment, the use of light and heat, ex-
ercise, diet, bahs, and the upbuilding
of the science of cosmetic dermatolo-
gy, clothes, plastic surgery, and other
affiliated topics are discussed and ex-
plained by Mme. Rubenstein.
The book has a wide appeal among
women because of its practical value.

Of Annual Atlet le
Tonight will see the formal closIng
of the hockey season with a fifth an-
nual banquet. - At this time the cup
will be presented to the winning
hockey team of the past season.
According to Janet Jones, '29,
hockeymanager, the banquet this year
will be the largest and one of the
best in the short history of the organ-
ization. Jo Parker's will be the
scene of the gathering. Beside the
four-course dinner, there will be peppy
music for dancing, and short speeches
by members of the faculty of the
physical education department. The
four class colors will be used in decor-
ations. At this time the all-star
hockey team will be announced, the
members of which are chosen from the
best players of this season and the
class numerals will be awarded.
At the close of the season in 1922,
the hockey manager decided that
something should be done to cele-
brate. The team managers planned a
picnic in the form of a weenie roast,
but inclement weather on the day set
fo " the picnic forced them to hold it
in Barbour Gymnasium.
The following year, the same idea

in the form of a dinner. For the last
two or three years, the affair has been
