American Colleges Lack Real Student
Self-Government, Especially
Large Universities
"The hone to do all in its power to
foster understanding among the stu-
dents of the world, with the goal of
world peace in mind, is the aim of
the National Student Federation of
America, which met in Lincoln, Ne-
braska for its third annual conven-
tion on Dec. 15, 16, and 17," stated
Cynthia Hawkins, '29, speaking before
the board of representatives of the
Women's league at their meeting yes-
Miss Hawkins attended the conifer-
ence in Nebraska as the representa-
tive of Michigan women.
"tters International Institutions
"Of course, such an organization
has its limitations, but if it can fos-
ter fellow-feeling among the students
of the world and build up interna-'
tional institutions, it has done a great
deal," Miss Hawkins continued. "In
line with this purpose, it sponsors
student tours, with student groups as
hosts in. the foreign countries; these
tours are directed by the Open Road
Seeks ToDevelop Student Opinions
The N. S. F. A. in its national as-
pect has several tasks, she went on to
say. No doubt thengreatest is that
of developing student opinion on na-
tional and international problems, and
to make the student conscious of the
importance of these problems, as well
as of his part in determining the pol-
icies which the nation shall follow.
The American organization has estab-
lished definite relations with the In-
ternational Confederation of Students
in carrying out this purpose.
To name the standing committees,
Miss Hawkins affirmed, would be
sufficient to give some insight into
the work of the organization. Among
the most important is that on iter-
national relations; another is com-
prised of members of the travel com-
mittee, while a third is termed -he
"speakers' bureau." The first two are
essentially self-explanatory; the third
deals with the arranging of reasona-
ble rates and the availability of good
Student Self-Government Discussed
"The greatest lack," Miss Hawkins
stated, "in American colleges, was
felt to be the lack of real student self-
government. This is noticeable partic-
ularly at denominational colleges, and
large universities. The subject was
one, of special interest at the discus-
sion groups.
"Here at Michigan, the women, as
represented by the league, have an
organization of self-government
which, compared with other schools,
which they can justly be proud. It
is very competent. and something of
has executive, legislative, and judicial
powers; it is working on a point sys-
system for activities, and is in com-
plee cooperation with the advisers to
women. These factors were stressed
as valuable at the convention.
Miss Hawkins went on to deplore
the lack of an efficient and responsi-
ble student body on the campus as a
whole, claiming that student self-
government, as outlined by the feder-
ation, is in truth, only in nominal
form here.
Regular classwork as done by the
women taking a physical education
major will be demonstrated by
them Tuesday night, Jan. 17, at 7, o'-
clock in Barbour 1ymnasium. Friend
of members of these classes and th
general public is invited to atten
the demonstration.
The following program' will be pre
sented,: posture parade by all class
es, clogging by the sophomores, gym
nastics by the seniors, dancing by th
juniors, stunts by the sophomores

folk dancing by the juniors, a relay
by picked people from each class, and
games in which everyone participates.
Judges of the competitive numbers
will be members of the physical edu-
cation teaching staff.

that help enhance youthful lovli-

buy at a tremendous saving, the
newest of the new, in design,
color, and material-in fact, you
may have two frocks at less than

Fashions that
Lead into Spring
Already the magic wand of
fashion is beginning to trans-
form our wardrobes from the
passing winter modes into
lightened and gayer Spring-
time styles. Every new frock
in the store today definitely
anticipates Spring, and their
details are indicative of the
true Spring mode.
Colors, too, brighten the
mood-sea blue, beige, na-
tural color, soft prints and
rosy beige, Lucerne blue,
cafe cream. The thrill of
fashion once again lures us
on into the fascinations of a
new season just begun.
