New furnishings costing about $500
were installed yesterday in the wom-
en's rest. room of Hill auditorium.
They included a davenport, couches,
rockers, chair's, rugs, and window cur-
tains, according to Irving . Truett-

Mrs. Nellie Taylor Ross, governor
of Wyoming, states that co-education
is conducive of greater serious in-

One of the chief motivating in-
fluences of today, according to Robert
Frost, "our New England poet," who
has been visiting Ann Arbor $during
the past week, is fear, fear of all
kinds.
"And the chief fear of all," he said,'
"is the fear of not being taken. The
fight for freedom is a pretence. We
want to be bound, to be captured by
sone great art. We are afraid lest
we will not be taken by. some com-
pelling ideal. We are afraid that
we won't want to do some one thing
so much that we will be willing to
sacrifice everything else to it."
And this fear, says the poet, dom-
inates all our lives. "Progress," he
said, "is being scared out of your-
'self forward. It is the result of the
fear of not achieving. I can remem-
ber the same fears I had when I was

a boy on campus. I have always
been afraid. It makes me tired when
people are afraid of fear."
All of human kind want to- be
happy, and it is Frost's belief that,
true happiness comes only from this
being completely captured by some
idea that requires expression. "And
men and women are both alike in:
this respect," he continued. "What
the woman really wants is to be cap-
tured by a man, to have a husband
and at home. She wants divorce least
of all. Her fear is that she won't be'
captured."
Robert Frost leaves today. "The
stay here this time has been so brief,"
he said, "that I air unable to do
many things I should have liked to
have done. I shall be going back to
the farm," he smiled. "My tripsj
from there are always short."
