A varied program of well-known
speakers has been planned, as
well as informal discussion groups
for the delegates at the conven-
tion. Miss Thyrsa Amos, president
of the American Deans Association
and dean of women at the Univer-
sity of Pittsburgh, the new "sky-
scraper college," will address the
entire group on the subject of "Per-

Other speakers on the program

secretary of the N. S. F. A. who has
visited Ann Arbor several times in
the last few years, and D. Mary

the representatives includes a re-
ception on Wednesday, the first
night of the convention, a campus

Nicholas Politis (Greece), chair-
man of the nationality committee
of the conference on Codification
of International Law, now in ses-
sion at the Hague, has granted one'
hour to the organized groups of
women to express their views on
the question for women.
The women have been lobbying
the delegates assiduously since the
beginning of the conference and
the formal audience is not neces-
sary to inform the convention of
the women's views, but it givves
them an opportunity to formally
present their stand.
Two women will speak-one to
represent the organized groups who
ask for equality in nationalty laws,
the other to take the contrary
view. The only contrary view so far
made public is that of a group of
about 12 Dutch women lawyers, not
associated with any organization,
who have presented a petition de-
claring that the existence of the
two nationalities in the same fam-
ly might have serious consequences
to its unity.
