Revise Point System
In commenting upon the amend-

passed by the Executive board of
the Women's Athletic association,
Betty Smither '29, president of W.
A. A., states that "to make member-
ship in W.A.A. possible for a larger
number of women is a step that has
been contemplated for several
years. Only three years ago the re-

All women who are interested in
doing costuming or designing work

those who would like to help or-
ganize a "jazz" orchestra are asked
to get in touch with Jane Yearnd,

Well, my dear, I'm all set to see
a really gorgeous game tomorrow.
I mean I think it ought to be a
truly thrilling one at least if it is
anything like last week's. I don't
know when I've been so positively
thrilled to death as I was at the
game last Saturday. The way our
men fought was actually inspiring
-I mean if I were a man I certain-
ly would have been filled with the
desire to get out and do something
bigger and better for our univer-
sity even though we did lose the
But, my dear, I was simply
crushed when Wisconsin made that
touchdown. Nothing, absolutely
nothing, was able to revive my
spirits for the rest of the week end,
I was so disappointed to think we
had lost. But really, when I stop-
ped to think about it,'I shouldn't
have felt that way because our
team was really the best one. And
I just know that they are going to
put up an even better fight against

painted in delicate tints harmon-
izing with cretonnes for divan and
hangings. "If Madam Hoff's
daughter or granddaughter should
step into any one of these rooms
designed for the girls of all lands,
she would recognize the loving
touch of the founder in all the,
artistic appointments."
"Unique in Paris is the infirm-
ary! A student alone in Paris, ill
and with no-one to furnish neces-

will find herself transported, to
the infirmary of the Foyer Inter-
national, where there are doctors,
nurses, where special food will be
prepared in the diet kitchen close
by, and where the only fee for all
this comfort and professional care
will be the actual price of the food
Except for the infirmary, the
Michigan League now under con-
struction will furnish the women
of this University with closely par-
allel privileges, making it evident
that the needs of college women
and the ideals of those people who
attempt to gratify their needs is
practically alike the world over. In
illustration of this point, there is
the easily observable similarity be-
tween the salle de conference, and
the Ethel Fountain Hussey lounges;
the salle de meditation, and the
League chapel; the bibliotheque
and our own Jessie Horton Koes-
sler Memorial library.
