WIVES INFiLUENCE
CHINESE POLITICS
Behind the scenes in China three
women are exerting an increasing
influence over the course of event.
These are the wives of the three most.
important military men of the hour,
Chang Tso-lin, Chiang K4i-shet, -nd
Feng Yu-hsiang.
These three women are about as
different as it is posgible 'for theam,
to be. Mrs. Chang is the typical old-
fashioned wife, who remains cleist-
ered in her home and who takes no.
outward part in he) husband's ac-
tivities. She is never seen at state:
banquets, she holds no atdiences, and
receives no foreign visitors. She is,
however, the head of a model lruse-;
hold, and is the symbol of her hus-
band's conservatism.,
Mrs. Chiang-shell, on the contrary,
is extremely modern. She was edu-
cated in America and was gradiated
from-L Welles ley only a few yeas ag.
She dresses in the European fashion,
and speaks English well, and she is
equally fluent in classical Chinese.
She expects her husband to win be-
cause she wishes him to.
Mrs. Feng Yu-hsiang is also mod-
ern, but in a different way. She is
active in the affairs of the worldain-
stead of being confined in" a harem.
Her support of her husband is differ-
ent than that of Mrs. Chiang ka-
she's, however, for she believes in
her husband's aims and works by his
side to bring them to fruition.

Elder, Mrs. Frances Grayson, and
others.
Their exhibit consists of a com-
plete line of aviation clothing, hel-
mets, goggles, gloves, boots, "waders,)
fur-lined mocassins, and a new
communicating helmet, whereby the
pilot can talk to the passenger with-
out the noise of the motor drowning
his voice. All the latest official ma-
terial used by both the Army and
Navy will be shown by this company,
who are the official outfitters for the
Army, Navy and Marine corps.
Other noon-day events of Women's
day will include a luncheon of the
American Business club at the De-
troit-Leland hotel, at which ;Casey
Jones will speak on "Experimental
Flying." Commander George Narville
will also be a luncheon speaker, hav-
ing as his subject "Trans-Oceanic
Flying," and Major Herbert A. Dargue
will talk on "The Pan-American
Flight" before the National Town;
and Country club.,
At 6:30 o'clock the Border Cities
Chamber of Commeree will have a
banquet at the Prince Edward hotel
in Windsor.

Teams To Be Chosen
Class baseball teams will resume
their practicing at Palm'er field this
afternoon preliminary to a series of
games which will open on Tuesday]

ENGLISH POET IS
WRITING LONGEST
EPIC IN LANGUAGE
One of the most unique poems in
the English language is the work of
an English woman, Miss Katherine
M. Buck, the daughter of a Nor-
olk doctor.
It is unique chiefly because of its
length. Although it is not yet finish-
ed, it already comprised eight vol-
umes, containing 3,000 printed pages.
The poem is known as the Wayland-'
Dietrich saga. In blank verse it de-
tails the legend of Northern Europe.
When finished it will be 6,000 pages
long, four times the length of Hom-
er's Illiadi and Odyssey combined.
Miss*Buck has been woirking on the
saga for 20 years. It was started
after she found a German translation
of the - old Icelandic and Swedish
versions of Thidrek:'s . and Didrick's
sagas, and was imnrediately siezed
with a desire to translate them into
English, so that English readers
might share the pleasure she derived
them.
In 1920 Miss Buck handed to the
proprietor of a. London bookshop, a
canto of the poem, IHIe read it and
encouraged her to go on. For four
years. She handed the shop keeper
canto after canto, until in 1924 she
had enough for a book. Thereafter
numbers appeared frequently, one
each month. The great libraries be-
gan to subscribe for it.
Miss Buck has traveled through-
out Eurone in search of mraterial for
the epic, and likewise to south Rus-
sia, India, and Palestine.
Dr. Rosalie S'. Morton, who has
made a test in the stores of New
York says that the health of men is
equal 'to that of the women and they
also have headaches and indigestion.
Thyra Samte Winslaw, novelist,
says that the flapper originated with
the oldish women who tried to coun-
terfeit youngishness.

Model assembly of the League of
Nations will be held at Michigan State
in May as an experiment in political
science. It is hoped to secure the
chamber of the house of repre'senta-
tives in the State capitol for the ses-
sions. Committees are being appoint-f
ed and all plans are being laid for a,
well-organized educational project..
Each country will have one repre-
sentative who if possible will be a'
native of that country. If he wishes,I
he may address the session in his
own tongue, since interpreters will be
present. The topics discussed will be
those before the league at this time.

deal of furniture has been delivered at
the field house, the decorating has not
yet been done. This work will be
completed before the dedication which
{will probably take place in either
April or the early part of May, ac-
cording to present plans. Everycne

lockers before the hour of practice.
The squad managers are Helen
Beaumont '28, Anne Zauer '29, Mar-
geret Bush '30 ,and Elizabeth Wood
'31. There are two diamonds avail-
able this spring, which makes it pos-
sible for all games to be played at
the same hour. They will probably
be scheduled at 4:15 on Tuesdays
and Thursdays. Spectators will not
only be welcome,. but are urgently
invited to come to see the games.
