She feels that it is no more a feat
than playing tennis or golf. IgA
fact she regards gliding as a sport
of that period. All she hopes is
that any publicity she may have
aroused will interest more people
in gliding and hasten its becoming
a popular sport. Already two other
girls are ready to follow her and
are only waiting for the return of
the Aeronautical society's own
ship, until they make their initial
flights. ..
When asked if she is interested
in aeronautics as a profession,
Miss Fox laughed and replied that
she has always intended to be a
Latin teacher, and she has not yet
I changed her mind. Her interestj
in flying is merely a side-line. She
has never even been in an air-
plane, but shc hopes to be able to
go up soon, not to be a girl pilot
and establish new records, but
"just for fun."
In Germany gliding has become
accepted and there has been no
loss of life. For this reason the
fear of injury from aeronautics is
rapidly waning. Miss Fox feels
that if only we could interest the
people in this country in gliding
that the same fear so prevalent
here would soon disappear.
Women's Clubs May
Use W. A. A. Building
According to a statement made'
by Dr. Margaret Bell, head of
the Women's department of physi-
cal education, the Women's Athle-
tic building will be available for
use by campus organizations. Al-i
though this was at first believed
impracticable because of the con-,
fusion that might arise, due to the
.number of organizations that
would desire to hold affairs there,
it was finally decided that when
the building was not in use it would1
be open to the women's organiza-I
tion on the campus.1
"The Women's Athletic building,"
Dr. Bell said, "offers great social
benefits to the women students at
Michigan and we want them to
realize these benefits."
Many organizations have already
observed this and taken advantage
of the privilege. According to the
schedule arranged for the build-

ciation plans to hold a meeting!

Plans for. the annual party
which Senior. Society will give for
Wyvern and Mortarboard, March
27, are to be kept a secret accord-
ing to Marie 'Hartwig, '29, presi-
dent[ of Senior Society. Betty

are in charge of the party arrange-
ments and will not disclose the
plans until a few days before the
Julia Ferguson, '29, is chairman
of the committee to sell the senior
collars. This duty always belongs
to Senior Society andd makes it
possible for senior women to
obtain their collars at the same
time as their caps and gowns.
The sale will be held between
March 11 and 15 at Barbour gym-
At the last meeting of Senior
Society on Tuesday evening, a pro-
gram was made out for all the
meetings for the rest of the year.
A new plan will be carried out
after the initiation in May. Here-
tofore the girls have been initiated
and then left to organize them-
Members for the society are
elected from the junior class, part
at the end of the second semester,
and part at the beginning of the
first semester. They ,include in-
dependent women who are prom-'
inerit on campus.

The Hospital library contains
about 1500 volumes, but there is
need for a much larger number,
and with the addition of a li-
brarian to the Hospital schooll
staff, any material will be much
better handled.
Patients, who in the course of a
year number over 30,000, all enjoy
books. In addition to general
reading, there is instruction in the
various branches of elementary,
high school, and commercial work,
under the guidance of the hospital
school, and the bedside work that
has become a specific part of the
curriculum. About 2,000 pupils are
enrolled annually for instruction.
Books of adventure, detective.
stories, and light novels are ur-
gently requested. In addition, text
books of all kinds are welcomed.
The large number of foreign qtu-
dents makes the contribution of
texts in languages other than Eng-
lish extremely accep.table.
The newly adopted program of
the Hospital library and its staff
will. become one of its most vital
projects. It is therefore a matter
which should be made a leading
interest of all the women's organi-
zations of the campus.
Miss Mabel Van Kleek is chair-
man of the Hospital committee of
the American Association of Uni-
versity Women, and will gladly re-
ceive any contributions at her
home at 333 E. Williams, or they
may be taken to the information
desk at the University Hospital.
