WOMEN'S LEAGUE TO'
Motifs Of All Holidays Will Expresst
1Uique Theme Of Affair t
DANCING TO BE FEATURED'
With the expression of the unique
theme of combining the motifs of allz
holidays in one, the Women's league
is sponsoring an entertainment from1
4 to 5:30 o'clock this afternoon in
Sara Caswell Angell hall.
Perhaps the first one of its kind ont
campus, this all-Holiday party has
been the recipient of special attentionz
on the part of those in charge, and it
Is expected will prove even morerz
popular and successful than former
league parties. All University women
are extended invitations to the affair.
The program of the afternoon willn-
be varied. Feature dances, entertain-
ment, and refreshments will be comn-c
bined with dancing in the presen ta-
tion of an affair that has been plan-c
ned on a larger scale than formerly.
Edna M'ower's jazz orchestra will
furnish the music during the affair.E
As has been the custom in the past,
all women on campus have been ex-
tended the privilege of bringing their
friends, and "a gay good time with the
opportunity of meeting other womens
will be assured to every guest" say
those in charge of arrangements. El-z
len Groff, '28, heads the committee.z
JOAN OF ARC HAD
BEST OF GUIDANCE
"If it be madness to be guided by thet
voices such as those which guidedt
Joan of Arc, I wish that some of us
could lose our senses also," Miss
Maude Royden said recently in speak-
ing of the voices of Joan of Arc.
"Joan believed she heard these voices,
and that they told her first of all 'to
be good,' and afterwards to go and
save her country."
In speaking on this subject, Rev.
Robert Nelson Spencer, of Kansas
City said recently: "Maude Royden
was born with a gold 'spoon in her
mouth, a very different fate from that
of Joan. Her father, Sir Thomas Roy-
den was lord mayor of Liverpool.
Her brother, the present Sir Thomas
Royden, is chairman of the Cunard and
Anchor Line steamship companies,
and a director of a number of rail-
ways and banks in England.
"You may not call it much, the
way Miss Royden got her call to
preach," Rev. Spencer went on. "One
day when she -was a little crippled
child, a carriage stopped at her house
during a bitter rain, and a dowager-
like person got out. When Lady Roy-
den expressed pleasure at the call, es-
pecially on such a wild day of rain,
the dowager-like person exclaimed,
'Oh, you know I came in a carriage.'
It was right there that the child re-
solved that if strength were given her
she would tell all England that not
everyone can ride in carriages. It
was not that it was a sin to ride in
carriages; it was the tone of the
"A tiny, tiny thing, you say. Yes,
but they are not always loud, these
voices. Is it because her physical in-
'firmity, her earlier years of pain,
schooled her to such sympathy as she
shows in her sermons, and in her pub-
lished writings? If so, she has war-
rant to speak to all who suffer, and
to speak victoriously, for she over-
came to a great degree her physical
handicap," concluded Rev. Spencer.

GREENE SAYS SPEED OF READING VARIED ?EATURES
EFFECTS NO CHANGE IN RESULTS ILSRE!
I I - . - w -% W-ft e4 I
Daily Bulletin of Sportswomen "
Following a series of experiments in
which four groups of students engaged
last semester, Edward B. Greene of
the pyschology department concludes
that the speed at which technical ma-
terial is read makes little difference
so far as results are concerned. He
describes the experiments as follows:
"Four groups of students engaged
in an experimental study of controlled
reading last semester to find out
whether the 'speed of reading serious-
ly affected the results on immediate
and delayed tests. Approximately 75
students, two-thirds men and one-
third women, composed each group.
They were directed to read technical
articles! each 2,500 words long. Group
I was to read very slowly; Group II
read slowly and took notes; Group III
and IV read a's fast as they could and
repeated the selection several times.
"At the end of the experiment the
students were all asked to estimate
their familiarity, interest, and effort
on each topic, and also to indicate
their usual reading habits on this sort
"The results in general show that
all the groups were approximately
equal in ability when measured by the
Iowa reading tests, scholastic aver-
ages, and usual reading habits. Fol-
lowing directions Group I actually
read at the average rate of 122 words
a minute; Group II at 104 words a
minute; Group III at 180 words a
minute; and Group IV at 185 word's a
minute. There was a very small
overlapping between the slow and fast
reading groups and a very reliable
average difference which amounted to
approximately 65 words a minute.
"On the immediate tests those that
took notes did not make quite as high
scores as the other three groups, but
there was no reliable difference be-
tween any of the groups which could
be attributed to 'speed of reading.
"On the delayed tests the group that
took notes equaled or exceeded the
other groups in every topic, indicat-
ing that they had retained more in-X
formation in spite of the fact thatt
they had not reviewed their notes in t
"The students estimated that the
first topic dealing with the mental
measurement of a vaudeville memor-
izer was the most interesting. The
last topic, on auditory discriminationT
in white rats, proved to be next mo'st
interesting to all except Group IV.1
In Group IV a large proportion ofr
students rated this topic below aver-1
age in interest, and they also made
scores below average on the tests.
This indicates that all studies of this
sort must be accompanied by a reli-
able student estimate of interest. z
"Student estimates of effort indi-
cated that none of the groups main-
tained as much effort at the end of aj
25-minute reading period as they did,
at the beginning. I feel that even for
a college student 25 minutes of un-
interrupted reading of hard technical1
material is too long a period. A more#
efficient use of the time would prob-
ably be found in reviewing or resting,
every 10 minutes. Other experiments
are being carried on now to try to
find out the best use of time."

Group I Overwhelms!
Alpha Omicron Pi
Rough play and crude floor workt
characterized games played yesterday f
in the semi-final round of the A intra-
mural basketball tournament between.
Alpha Omicron Pi and the Group Ij
independents in which the independent
team emerged victorious by a 50 to
18 score. By winning over the sor-
ority team the Group I six put itself in
line to meet the Martha Cook building
team to determine the champions of
the 1928 intramural tournament.
The game started with a rush, both
teams showing nervousness due to
over anxiety to gain possession of the
ball. The sorority team was first to
score but was soon headed by the in-
dependent team. During a let-down
period of guarding Stahl and Zauer
tallied three goals apiece and put their
team into a lead which they main-
tained throughout the remainder of
the period. At the end of the first
quarter the score stood 13 to 4 In
favor of the independent six.
The second quarter opened with a
quick succession of goals by the Group
I players. The game slowed down
considerably, both teams making er-
ratic passes and numerous fouls being
committed. The players resorted to
long overhead passes which were re-
'sponsible for the .erratic play, the
snappy close-in passing game of the
earlier period being abandoned. The
ball rolled out of bounds frequently.

OVER LAST YEAR
Regardless of various rumors that
the enrollment of the University of
Michigan has fallen off in the past
year, statistics from the Registrar's
office show a total increase of 301
students over last year's 12,313. This
increase may be found in all of the
different schools and colleges.
The business administration school
leads the increases with an exact
doubling of its enrollment. Th-a num-
ber of men and the number of women
are both doubled. This school now
ha's an enrollment of 114. The lit-
erary school stands next in the list
with an increase of 102, totalling 5630,
then the medical school with 61 more
students enrolled for 1927-28, making
a total of 666.
A loss of enrollment is found in the
College of Engineering and Archi-
tecture, the Nurses' Training school,

the Advisory Board are grateful to them. But we have not heard
from a large number of Ann Arbor citizens who, no-doubt, would like
to help but who have not had the opportunity. Their pledges are
essential to success. Without them we cannot win-and to fail the

We must not fail-and with your help we shall not. For your
convenience a pledge card is printed below. Fill it out and mail it
to campaign headquarters at the Salvation Army Citadel or call
