found in them a friendly spirit toward
American students. In Budapest, Hun-
gary, where Miss Arrowsmith studied
last year, one of the favorite students
was an Ohio man who was studying
medicine there.. A warm welcome is
always afforded to Amenican students
who travel in Germany also, Miss Ar-
rowsmith says, and parties, entertain-
ments, and other enthusiastic demon-
strations are given in their honor.
"Last week I had the pleasure of
meeting some women at Smith college
who had taken the Open Road tour
last summer," she continued, "and as
several of them had been abroad with
their parents before last year, I was
inters-sted in hearing their views.
they all agreed that the experience
had been a valuable one to them, and
that it was entirely different from
going just for the purpose of sight-
seeing. They found that real friend-
ships were formed, because the. Euro-
peans and Americans were interest-
ed in each other, and were earnest
in their ideals of world fellowship."
Miss Arrowsmith said yesterday
that, besides the Open Road tours, the
N. S. F. A. fosters tours which travel
entirely under student leadership.
They are sent by the Conference In-
ternational des Eudiants, and the
total number of students admitted is
limited to 100.
"Summer before last a group of
European students came to the United
States on a tour much like the Open
Road tours, but this has not been

Thirty civic organizations have
pledged their support to restore the
:amous "hanging gardens" of flowers
in Minneapolis. When visitors from
all over the world go there this sum-
mer to attend the International Ro-
tary club convention and the meet-

sociation they will be greeted by flow-
ing vines, blossoms, and small cedars,
placed on 14,000 ornamental light
postsand in 15,000 or 20,000 window
boxes throughout the business dis-
tricts of the city.
Every spring for many years before
the World war, Mineapolis regularly
dressed itself forth in native flowers of
Minnesota, usually decked from lamp-
posts and windows. In 1911, after
the fame of the "hanging gardens"
had been spread, 54 other cities in-
quired about the plan, and a number
- of them afterward adopted it. The
plan was temporarily abandoned in

That there are few possibilities for a small daily or a weekly publication.

students graduating in journalism to
obtain positions on the staff of any
large daily publication, is the opinion
of Mr. Robert W. Desmond of the
journalism department. Last year,
between June and August, more than
500 applications were made for a
position on a large daily, and only
two of them were accepted in places
that happened to be open. The truth
is, the editor had previously taken an
option on those two as the best from
the graduating class, so that there
really was no chance at all for the
rest of the applicants. I'
However, admits Mr. Desmoid, very
few students receive positions through
"pulls" unless they are really capable
of filling the requirements. About the
only thing a "pull" can do is to make
the opportunity for acceptance great-
er if an opening does come.
"There are more opportunities with
With the lettering and numbering

Athletic building has been completed,

yesterday at the office' of Irving W.
Truettner, maintenance inspector of
the Buildings and Grounds department.

The smaller publication is more like-
ly to have positions open and they
cannot make such heavy requirements.
In any cases the large daily will not
take on any one who has not had
some practical experience on another
paper. They have not the time nor
the need to train applicants fresh
from school for practical work."
