Group Of American University Women
Will Travel Abroad To Promote
World Friendsliip
Announcement has just been made
that there are four more vacancies
in the Open Road tour of Europe
which is to be conducted for Michi-
gan women this summer by Mary L.
Lytle, social director of Betsy Bar-
hour house. The tour is being con-
ducted primarily for women who are
students at the university, and its
purpose is to foster a feeling of world
fellowship through students, and ulti-
mately a broader international under-
standing. Tours of the same sort are
to be conducted next summer With
student groups from all of the larger
American universities, special groups
of women and of men being included. 1
The Michigan Open Road tour has
been endorsed by President Little and
also by the committee of advisors to
women, and seven students have al-
ready, enrolled.
Women Will Be Entertained
While the group is abroad they will
meet and be entertained by students
in all of the cities and towns in which
they visit. A spirit of responsibiltiy and
a sense of the importance of the tour
constitute some of the main require-
ments for membeship in the group
which will go next summer. Arrange-
ments are already being made by stu-
dent and other organizations in the
different localities which the Michi-
gan groups will visit. The programs
are being worked.out with a view to
balancing country and city, society
and eight seeing, activity and rest. The
International Student Hospitality as-
sociation is taking special pains to
avoid over-organization, and to in-
sure that the Americans have time
for browsing in their own way.
In making the physical arrange-
ments, the aim is to approximate Am-
erican standards of food, shelter and
ti-avel comfort without isolating the
Americans on a pinnacle of fictitiou
wealth. Where there are good stu-
dent hotels or academic dormitories
they will be used; in some instances
lodgings will be in private homes.
and hotels will for the most part
be the less pretentious ones, patron-
ized by the people of the country
Meals will be served according to the
custom of the country. In almost ev-
ery country a student of the country
will travel with the group as guide
and host.
Will Return On August 26
The general itinerary includes four
days in London, with excursions t
Cambridge, Hampdon Court, Stok
Poges, Windsor, and Eton; Brussels

with a two days stay at Heidelberg;
and approximately a week is plann

Group Of University'
Go rfo Chicago7



Every year for eight years a group
of university women have gone to'
Chicago to work for a summer among'
the working women of the factories.
This group is sponsored by and is
under the leadership of the Y. W. C. A.
-a Y. W. C. A. secretary being usually
at the head of the group.
The purpose of the work is to give
the college women an insight in the
industrial life. It helps them to learn
more of the practical side of life. Any-
one who desires a position with a
trade union finds that this experience
is very helpful. The conditions that
working women have had to work
under have been deplorable but with
the introduction of the trade unions
they have gradually improved. If more
educated women can be induced to be
interested in this work, the conditions
will become still better.
About July 6 the women leave for'
Chicago. It takes them from one to
four days to become located and to
find a job, the women looking for their
own employment. During their stay
at Chicago, they are not requested to
work at any one factory all of the
time but they change from time to time,
going where they believe that they
can obtain the most helpful exper-
ience. While they are in Chicago they
reside at clubs where there are a
great many working women. Although
they do not live all together they meet
from time to time for group meet-
ings at which they have discussions
of their work, having many tme
speakers on social service and person-
nel work.
This is decidely not a money making
proposition, the average wage being
about $13. The money that is earned
is pooled and divided equally among
the group. This is done to help those
who are out of work or those who
wish to work at a factory that pays
very low wages.
An interesting thing is that the
group is inter-racial. It is especially
desirous that negro women join. The
conditions for the negro woman work-
er are much worse than those for the
white woman, a negro who was a
Class Day exercises which are held
about the last day of May are a
great event every year at Vassar col-
lege. It is, the last group activity
of the senior class, and to some the
most important. The pageant given
by the seniors is the main event of
the day, and is always followei by
the carrying of the Daisy Chain.
The story portrayed by the dances
is always different; usually originated
by some member of the class. One
year it was the "Wizard of Oz." In the
story the people of Oz were plagued
by the Wizard and finally thrown into
an enchanted sleep to be at last awak-
aned by Ozma, the Spirit of Youth.
The hand maidens of Ozma then
brought in the Daisy Chain, forming
an aisle down which the seniors pass-
The setting of the pageant the next
year was Russian. Lada, the goddess
3f spring, with her helpers chased
3ut winter and brought in summer.
At the conclusion the traditional Daisy
Chain was brought in by girls dress-
.d in Russian peasant costumes of
various hues which made a colorful
background for the white daisies.
Although there is often much con-
ecture each year about the procur-
ng of the daisies, no senior class has
gver yet had to have a chain of ar-
ificial flowers.

Women Will
To Work In Factories;
member of last summer's group hay-
ing worked ten hours a day, seven'
days a week for 14 cents an hour.
In order to go with the group one
must be either a junior or senior in
college, or a graduate student. It is
better to have had several courses in
social science. Then, one must show
a seriousness of purpose and a will-
ingness to cooperate with the rest of
the group in their group wrork. Each
must be interested in gaining know-
ledge that will help to better the
lot of the working woman. Each wo-
man is requested to bring enough
money for the first week's expenses
and extra $15 to be used in case of
For two years there has been a
representation from this campus. In
the summer of 1926 Mrs. Emily Fiel-
stra was a member of this group. Last
summer Cynthia Smith, '27, went. Miss
Smith is still obtaining experience
due to the fact that she intends to be-
come connected in union work later.
If anyone is interested in joining the
group this summer, all information1
can be obtained from Mrs. Emily Fiel]
stra at 551 Church.
Dr. Margaret Bell, head of the wo-l
men's department of Physical Educa-
tion, gave the principal address at the
Mother-Daughter banquet at Plymouth
last Tuesday night. The subject which
she presented to the Plymouth wo-
men was "Womanhood."
In her talk, Dr. Bell stressed the
point that women will always have to
set the moral standards of the world.
Dr. Bell very strongly condemned the
women of today who seek to imitate,
men, and to adopt masculine stand-
ards, the inevitable consetuence of
which, she declared, will be a return
to the era of barbarism.


"It may have been true a few years
ago that department stores did not
want college graduates for employees,
but it isn't true now, at least not
with us," said It. C. Bigham, employ-
ment manager of the J. L. Hudson
company. "We want men and women
who can think, and college graduates
should be able to do that."
"Besides the number of graduates
we employ every year, we also have
a training school. The number in this
school is very limited, but it is a good
place to aim for."
The training school at present has
17 members, 12 men and 5 women.
These people are directly under C. J.
Smith. They receive training in every
departmenti sin buying, selling and
general management, and while in
each department, are directly respon-
sible to the head. The course is two
years and anyone who is able and
permitted to finish it is assured of a
good position.
"The chief field for women in a de-
partment store is buying. .Of course,
there are exceptions, but more women
obtain high positions in buying than
in any other position," Mrs., Henky,
assistant to R. C. Bigham said. "Most
of our buyers come from the sales
force, in fact, we almost demand that
they do some selling before begin-
ning to buy. Each store has its own
type of customers and the buyer must
understand the customers before she
can buy for them."
"There is no special training a girl
must have to become a buyer except
experience. And even experience is
not always necessary. A position is
often given to a girl without experi-
ence who has a good appearance and
pleasing personality in preference to
one who has experience but lacks the
other qualities."
In answer to the question about
other fields for women Mrs. Henky
'said, "About the only position open
to women in advertising is that of ar-
tist. Good artists are always in de-
mand. There are few executive posi-
tions open, and to repeat again what
II said before, the best position for a
woman in a department store is buy-
