sponsors for the R.O.T.C. drill, a cus-

course of the University of Indiana.
The Cadet Officers' club elected the
sponsors with the assistance of the
imilitary staff. Depauw 'university
has also adopted this plan.

alumnae house parties, formal and in-
formal dances were sponsored by the
various sororities and dormitories.
Alpha Gamma Delta gave a house

ficer, who has been a guest at the

ing in Europe for a year, will be the

ner at Alpha Gamma Delta house

hey of Traverse City, has been a
guest at the house for several days.

ender calendars were the decorations.

Women of Betsy Barbour have been

"Although I am not from one of the
48 states, I am nevertheless a citizen
of United States," said Miss Agnes
Johnson, a freshman on campus from"
the Canal zone. "Everyone seems to
think that I am from a foreign Land,
but the Canal zone is as much a part
of the union as Michigan, in fact
more so. We are under the direct
control of the national government."
According to Miss Johnson, the
Canal zone is something like a sec-
tion of land owned by some large com-
pany. Everything is owned by the
government, land, houses, stores,
movies, and even the club-house. She
stated that it is the one place in
the world where you do not have to
have money-but you must have a
coupon book. These are issued in,
various sizes and are used entirely in
place of money.
The city of Balboa in the Canal zone
and Panama City, Panama join's each
other with only a broad avenue r'un-
ning between them; and' for enter-
tainment the "Zonians" go to Pan a-
ma City. The natives there enjoy
holidays and have frequent festivals
of which the most important is the
Carnival, just before Lent. This holi-
day lasts three days and culminates in
entertaining their alumnae over the
week end. A. reunion banquet was
held last night following an afternoon
of bridge.

a great parade and dance. There are
all kinds of fancy dress worn but
most of the women wear the tradi-
tional "pollera," a dress with a long
full skirt heavily embroidered and
with many rosettes of yarn. The
Americans from the Canal zone are
the audience for the affair.
"But the Americans are really
spoiling it now," this student said.
"Before, it was a great holiday that
the natives enjoyed for themselves,
but now it is becoming more of a
show for the Americans and is not as
real and spontaneous."
When asked about the schools in
the Canal zone, Miss Johnson replied,
"They are no different than those
here. The schools are all run by the
government and have exactly the same
'system of hours and credits that you
have in the states. We have our
school annual, senior play, parties and
everything else the same as you do.
Our school is on the accredited list
and we do not have to take entrance
examinations for college. One dif-
ference is that the government furn-
ishes all our books and laboratory
equipment."
Miss Johnson decided in her junior
year in high school to come to the
United States to college, and chose
Michigan. "It was not so difficult to
get ready to come except that clothes
are always a big question, especially
when coming from a place that is
always summer to one that has weath-
er like Ann JArbor. Hrome seems
rather a long way off, especially when
I think that I will not see it for a
whole year more. I am planning to
go home only between my sophomore
and junior years."
