Friday The Thirteenth Furnishes
Motif For Yesterday's


The following women were guests
at the party given by the Women's
league yesterday afternoon in the
parlors of Barbour gymnasium: Miss
Grace Richards, Miss Alice Lloyd,
Miss Ione Johnson, Mrs. Louise Van
Sickle, Miss Ethel McCormick, Dr.
Margaret Bell, Miss Ruth Figge, Miss
Annis Hall, Miss Lauri Campbell,
Mrs. Elizabeth Woodward, Miss Doro-
thy Ogborn, and Miss Ella Rawlings.
The party was called a "Supersti-
tion Party" because of the date be-
ing Friday, the thirteet. Guests on
entering found themseves walking
under a ladder. Going further into
theparlors they saw posters on the
walls with mystic inscriptions and
superstitious bugaboos printed there-
Miss Velma Johnson provided en-
tertainment with a specialty dance.
There was dancing for all with music
by Edna Mower's four-piece orches-
tra. Afterwards there was a "Bread
and Butter" grand march. Refresh-
ments were served at the end of the
Hostesses were members of the
entertainment committee of the Wo-
men's league. Arrangements were in
charge of Jean Dow, '28, who was as-
sisted by the members of the enter-
tainment committee.
Fields Of Service In
HospitalAre Varied
According to Miss Dorothy Ketch-
am' of the Social S'ervice Department
of the University Hosital, this de-
partment is composed of three divi-
sions. First, there is the school di-
vision, second, there is the occupa-
tional therapy, and third, the social
case work.
The school department deals with
children who are in the hospital for
treatment, and who are missing their
school, work at home. The school di
vision has trained teachers, with stu-
dent assistants, who teach the child-
ren. The work is supported in part
by the King's Daughters and partly
by the University Hospital.
Workers Have Degrees
Workers in the occupational thera-
py all have college degrees with spe-
cial training later at either occupa-
tional therapy schools or the Univer-
sity Hospital. This work occupies the
patient while he is in the Hospital.
Training has a two-fold purpose:
first, the training of the muscles, and
second, occupation of the patient's
time. One man, who learned basketry
while a patient, earned over $300 aft-
er he reached home, by making bas-
Social case work deals with the ad-
justment of the patient to his dis-
ease and to his environment. Many
persons who enter the Hospital for
treatment arenot fitted to go back
into work they were formerly em-
ployed in. So the Hospital social ser-
vice fits them for some other em-
ployment and helps to find work.
Have 50 Workers
There are about 50 workers in the
department, including teachers, sten-
ographers, and workers. All work-
ers must be fitted and trained for
the work they are doing. College
degrees and continued study are
necessary. The workers wear yellow,
the occupational therapists pink, and
the case workers wear green. "Were
is a great opportunity for women in
social service," concludes Miss Ketch-
Such a delightful

"That deferred rushing makes for
unfriendly relations among sororities
has been reported as thesexperiences
of Hillsdale cqllege," stated Mrs.
Waldo M. Abbot, patrone'ss of Pan-
Mrs. Abbot pointed out that the
sororities under the plan of second
semester rushing would be rivals the
whole first half of the year and that
there would be the constant suspi-
cion that rules were being disregard-
ed if any indications of acquaintance-
ship between freshmen and upper-
classmen were observed.
That the two weeks period of con-
centrated rushing has great disad-
vantages since it places a strain up-
on the entering women just when they
should get acquainted with the uni-
versity classes and do well in their
studies during the first weeks when
first and often lasting impressions are
made upon the professors, was the
opinion of Mrs. Abbot. A 'shortened
period of rushing to be completed be-
fore the official opening of school
work was the plan recommended
rather than deferred rushing.
Margaret Breer, '28, former presi-
dent of Pan-hellenic, said that accord-
ing to the experiences of other cam-
puses with deferred rushing as re-
vealed by discussions on the subject
at the Pan-hellenic convention last

'spring it had not been successfully
carried out except in small schools.
ThedUniversity of Pittsburgh has
adopted second semester rushing but
the problem there would not be as
complicated as at Michigan which has
a larger number of women students.
Deferred rushing was voted down at
the University of Minnesota, and
while given a trial by other schools,
has generally been abandoned and
the former concentrated rushing
period reinstated.
One reason for the reported suc-
cess of the method at Leland Stanford
in addition to the fact that the plan
was given three years in which to be-
come organized, has been that the
university was in a position to make
concessions to the sororities to assist
them in meeting the practical diffi-
Florence Holmes, '29, president of
Pan-hellenic, stated in referring to
second semester rushing, "While
there are many points in favor of the
plan, the arguments against its prac-
ticability at Michigan outweigh them.
The suspense of rushing would be ex-
tended through the first semester and
the present friendly feeling among
sororities would be strained. Two
weeks of rivalry do not destroy this
feeling, but a whole semester of ten-
sion might do so."

Society Girl Plans
To TakeUp Flying
Following a 100 mile an hour
flight from New York to Miami which
is the first non-stop flight between
these two places, Miss Ruth Nichols,
Rye, N. Y. society girl, plans to go
into the flying business.
Accompanying Miss Nichols in the
Fairchild pontoon monoplane were
Harry Rogers, president or an air-
line in Miami and Major M. K. Lee,
retired business man and an amateur
Miss Nichols is the only woman
holder of an international seaplane
pilot's license and has been flying for
five years. This non-stop flight was
her second trip by air from New York
to Miami. The previous trip was
made in short hops with an aunt as
a passenger. On the non-stop flight
Miss Nichols was at the controls for
five consecutive hours and for two
shorter intervals. "Flying," she says,
"is the only real way to go any ap.
preciable distance."-
There are 53 recognized organiza-
tions of women students at the Uni'
versity of Texas, according to records
kept in the office of the dean of Un-
iversity women. There are about 671

famous Soong sisters to the defeated
but honorably esteemed Marshal Chi-
ang Kai-shek, resigned generalissi-
mo of the now scattered Nationalist
armies which, under his leadership,
once conquered half of China.
Chiang appears as the most matri-
monially romantic of n'odern Chinese
conquerors, because he has openly
persisted in wooing a lady known to
have refused him at first. Such a re-
fusal in China causes the suitor to

rather than endure it. The use of

She told no one 'of her affliction
