Student Volunteers Convention In
Detroit Will Open Homes To
Those Attending
As the halls o residence and some
I-ague houses close during the Christ-
mas vacation, it is necessary for
foreign women who wish to remain
in Ann Arbor for all or part of the
holidays to make temporary living ar-
rangements. The situation is much re-
lieved this year by Alumnae house and
Stoughton house remaining open for
the entire holiday. The rate offered
by each is $5 per week or $1 per day.-
At Alumnae house no meals will be
served; at Stoughton house a kitchen-
ette privilege is offered.
Miss Graqe Richards, adviser to
women, asks all who desire help in
securing acceptable accommodations
to see her before Wednesday, Dec. 14.
The demand for kitchenette priv-
ileges has been met 'or the last twoa
years by the hospitality extended atI
Lane Hall, through the courtesy of the9
Student Christen association.<
Here there is a gas stove, sink, and
a table, cooking utensils and dishes.-
As many as 10 guests can be takent
care of. The room will be availablee
from 9 a.m., to 7 p.m., every day in-I
eluding Sunday for the entire vaca-a
tion period. It is hoped that foreign<
women students who remain in Annl
Arbor' during the holidays will use
this service freely for regular and oc-
casional meals, individually or in
groups, and that the National groups
will use it also. There is no charge.
To avoid conflicts, women are asked
to make arrangements with the cus-
todian of Lane Hall.l
Arrangements for out of town visits<
are materializing very slowly but willI
be hurried to completion before Dece
16. The Student Volunteers Conven-
tion in Detroit, Dec. 28 to Jan. 2 prom-
ises such unusual interest that efforts1
are being made to entertain in Amer-
ican homes all foreign students who
wish to attend. Due to Ann Arbor's
geographic nearness to Detroit, Michi-
gan has been allowed to increase itst
number of delegates from 42 to 100.
The occasion should be one of great
and far-reaching international inter-
est, in the opinion of Miss Richards.
Details other than those of living ar-
rangements can be learned from Mr.
Homer Grafton, associate secretary of1
the Student Christian association, at1
Lane Hall.
Hospitality in Detroit will not re-
place the annual plan of the American
Association of University Women toI
entertain foreign students in Ameri-1
can homes. Lansing, Battle Creek,
Grand Rapids and other cities will ie
with Detroit in entertaining foreign
students during the holidays.
All women who feel that Miss Rich-
ards can help with their arrangements
are urged to see her promptly.
Among the 50-odd foreign women in
the University, there are 19 from
China, 8 from Japan and 3 each from
India, Korea, the Philippines, and
Hawaii. Ireland and Russia are rep-
resented on campus by two women, in
addition to the men students, of
course. Austria, the Canal Zone, Den-
mark, France, Holland, Hungary, the
Malay penninsula, Norway, Porto Rico,
and Turkey have one woman each
on campus.
NORTHWESTERN.-Statistics show
that the men at Northwestern univer-
sity have more of their photographs
finished than the women students do.
The University of Chicago is going
to show wives how to feed a husband
on 51 cents a day.


All junior women who are on
warning or probation from last
