Women who are planning on sub-I

Arbor, and the name which will ie

as has the "tap room" in the Michigan
Union building.
The contest, which is being con-
ducted by the Alumnae council ai
Women's league, is open to all undce-
graduate women, It has been hoped
that a policy of making the contest
an affair of the individuals in vari-
ous houses would be adopted. If the
undergraduate women do not respond,
the finding of a name will have to
be turned over to the Alumnae wo-

"Why a nursery school?' ask many,
and this question Miss Clancy, super-
intendent of the Merrill-Palmer
school answered in a recent inter-
view. "The stbject of the nursery
school," says Miss Clancy, "is not a
new one but it has loomed up in re-
cent .yeas as a very important ques-
tion for educators, social workers and
those interested in mental hygiene to
consider and discuss. It is these
years, so the psychologists tell us,
that are the most important of our
According to Miss Clancy, a nursery
to most people suggests the home,
where a child may play and is car-
ed for, school on the other hand sug-
gests- a place where children learn
and they wonder what young child-
ren can be learning in a nursery
school. Miss Clancy says, "They are
learning many thlngs. Of course it is
not a type of formal training as a
child will receive when he enters one
of our public schools but we hope
that he is acquiring in this little
school the foundations which will
help him to live efficiently and ef-
fectively according to his utmost ca-
The nursery school in Ann Arbor
is a branch of the Merrill-Palmer
school of Detroit. Itwas organized in
the spring of 1925 with a limited
group of children selected from nor-
mal average homes and ranging in
age from 18 months totfive years.
Children who enroll in the Merrill-
Palmer school, have a complete phys-
?cal examination at regular periods.
in a room, made attractive with toys,
bright (colored pictur'es, low t ables
'nd chairs, the childlsoon'learns to
1 el that this is the place where it is
fun to come and that it is not the
much dreaded doctor's office that in
(be child's mind has been associated
with pains and hurts.
A daily inspection of each child's
iose, throat, and chest takes take 's
place upon arrival at the school in
r rder to keep out colds and in fec-
tions. "In this inspection," says Miss,
EClancy, "the child soon learns to co-1
operate, onening his mouth and put -
Iing out his tongue, an incident whicii
time and again outside is an occasion
for battle."
"Following inspection by the dwe-
or, wraps are removed, each child
having his own locker which ie lo-
cates by a little picture on a tag,
perhaps a guinea pig, or a bird," as
Miss Clancy explained, "Just some
silple object to visualize his own
place in his mind, for of course, we
can't read in this little school. Ga-
loshes, leggings, coat, and hat all
come in for attention because each
child is learning how these things
are putonand taken off learning in-
dependence in looking after himself
and care in putting away his things."
To a room with low ceilings, bright
colored curtains, and toys arranged
on low shelves within easy reach, the
children come for their indoor play
period. Before the play period each
child is given tomato juice and cod-
liver oil with it and," smiled Miss


Clancy, "amazing as it seems thw
children love it." In the play tiiw
there are blocks, beads, books paint-
ing, clay-modelling, andMontessori
material for the younger c'hiilren
and carpenter work, with real saws,
hammers, and a work bench for the
older ones. Also dolls, small dishes,
and household equipment to play
house with--in fact most everything
to delight and interest the child.
Next comes the out-of-door play
time in a yard equipped with swings,
slide, a junglegym to climb, balanc-
ing-board, kiddie-cars, tricycles, sand-
piles, shovels, sandtoys, large and
small boxes to build with, and a piano
box in which to play house or store.
Inside again the children gather in
a circle for a story, a song, a game.
or "news" as the children call it.
"And how they love it," says Miss
Clancy,"to show a favorite doll, a
new pair of shoes, a book, or one of
their favorite toys."'
After this the children rest 15 min-
utes before lunch listening perhaps
to a Brahm's waltz or a bit of Shu-
mann or Schubert, or perhaps even a
story, but always resting.
At a lunch prepared by a trained
person and prepared in a most appe-
tizing manner, it iscthe accepted so-
cial custom for the children to eat ev-
erything on their plates, except per-
haps the child who has just entered
and he is never coaxed, threatened,
or wheedled into eating his food. He
eats his lunch as a matter of course,
and is soon among the brigade clam-
oring for "more dinner."
Nap-time follows lunch when 25
little tots, each on their own little
bed, covered up with a woolly ban-
ket are soon fast asleep. At a quarter
to three nap-time is over and it is
time to go home. A busy time with
each child trying to find the right
shoo for the right foot. ".Busy, yes,"
s~ys Miss Clancy, "but they love it
The greater part of the Hall estate
fund was designated for the American
College at Athens, Greece.

Forinail opening of the new fih!
house will not be held until 1128, but
the Women's Athletic association has
been given special permission to hold
en informal housewarming there on
Dec. 14. The party will be held from
5:30 to 7:30 o'clock and supper will
be served around a grate fire in the
main lounge.
Members of the party will take af
tour of inspection around the field
house where later on the activities of
the association are to be centered.
The large hardwood floor is almost
finished and already presents a shin-
ing and glassy surface. Bowling al-
leys, and rifle and golf ranges are'
taking shape downstairs. There are
beautiful locker rooms downstairs,
and lockers upstairs for profession-
als. There is a kitchen in the building
which is lighted by many little win-
dows and which is painted white ev-
erywhere, with light green shelves.'
In the basement is a tiny heating
room which members of former hock-
ey teams will doubtless rate the most
important of all. This room has been
in operation for some time now and
those who attend the housewarming
will find the whole house warm.
Members and prospective members
of the Women's Athletic association
will receive guest cards through the
mail. These cards will enable eachf
one tosbring a friend whoisnot eli-
gible to W. A. A. membership- a girl
friend--and they themselves may gain
admittance only if they remember to
bring their membership cards. Au-
drey Wright, '28, treasurer of the as-
sociation, will be at the door with
nembership cards for sale.
90 women were awarded honors by
the AE. A. A. for their work in at- -
letics, at the annual spread of the

Final reIpoits have been estimated
for the amount of money which the
Christmas card committee of the Un-
dergraduate ca up aign committee has
been selling this fall and the amount
approximately reaches the sum of
$126.00 as an entire profit. These
cards were ordlered rom Mrs. Gue-
ger~ell of Chicago and the nuumber
ordered had to cover all postal rates
and insurance costs. The league re-
ceived 50 per cent of all the profits
derived from these orders. This sum,,
while not the actual amount of profit
received by the league is as near as
any estimate can be reached at the
present time. Not all the orders have
been received and the orders yet to
arrive may enlarge this sum. As it
now stands the committee has enlarg-k
ed their profits from last year and
show an increase over last year's
The choice of cards this year was
wide and unusual. The prices of all
the cards was extremely reasonable
and orders have been received on
very short time limits. Most of the
cards have arrived and are being de-
livered but the last orders will be
taken care of before the Christmas
holidays begin. They will be delivered
before the 16th by members of the
committee. Virginia Read, '29, is the
chairman of this committee and it is
through her untiring efforts that the
su mof money has surpassed that
earned by this same committee last
