Mrs. F. Fisher Says
Gandhi Not Oposed
to Christian Ideals
By C. Miller, '32.
With a small bronze Buddha
watching knowingly, and surround-
ed by many Eastern art objects,
in her home, Mrs. Frederick Fisher
sketched word-pictures in such a
vivid fashion. in answer to ques-
tions of an interview, that the room
seemed to fill with the swarthy
faces of young Indian enthusiasts.
"Although the young students of
India pursue much the same course
of instruction that American stu-
dents do and that in the English
tongue, there is a very great differ-
ence between the Indian and Amer-
ican youths," she said, "in that the
youths of India must apply their
knowledge to a civilization which
is 6,000 years rooted in traditions of
Eastern thought, and impregnated
with Eastern dogma."
At the present time, she went on
to say, the youth of India is not
rebelling as many of our American
youths. are at the irksomness of
unsatisfactory educational systems,
nor are they at war with them-
selves as to the questions of reli-
gion, quibbling over a troublesome
agnosticism. They have caught the
note which Ghandi has instilled
into the country, and are afire with
enthusiasm for the independence I
of India.
For the most part, Mrs. Fisher
continued, the Indians accept their
religion as it is handed down to
them from thespriests, or if they
live in out-of-the-way villages, they
receive their religious instruction
from the story tellers, who are very
often illiterate.
"But it is too early," she added,
"to expect India to develop muh
in the line of education or religion,
for they are wrestling with the idea
of Independence. Russia and China
are also in the throes of assimilat-
ing a new idea, and ideas are more
powerful in their conquests than
"India, however," she continued,
"stands out above these two coun-
tries because she has received this
new thought from the Christ-like
personality of Ghandi. When the
young people of India have at last
won this idea as a part of them-
selves, then perhaps they will reach
the point of divine discontent which
is characteristic of the youth of
other nations. The discontent from
which progress arises."

seen through the dance, from the
primitive to the modern impres-
sionistic school. "In primitive times
everyone danced. They expressed
emotion this way as we do by going
to football games. Men danced more
than women at that time, although
women have been the chief sup-
porters of the dance during its long
decline in importance." However,
Miss White believes that the revival
which started fifteen years ago with
Isadora Duncan, and which is con-
tinuing with the German school
will bring the dance back to its
"Natural dancing is harder to
teach than clog dancing, yes. There
is fore to it. And for each of the
pupils it is more of an individual
matter: You can get out of it just
about what your interest demands,"
she said in conclusion.

er in the week. Members of her

"Our teas this year have been

League parties. "Attendance at all
the teas has been over 200," she
said. "There will be dancing, an

Dean of Women Discusses Tent
Year Program in Relation
to Alumnae. d
"To provide for needs of the Uni- r
versity not covered by state appro- t
priation is the purpose of the Ten-
year Program," stated Miss Alice c
Lloyd, Dean of Women and member
of the award committee of the c
Alumnae Council.
Other groups of the Michigan'.
Alumni Association are occupied
with raising money for a memorial
tower to Marion Leroy Burton and
to increase the salaries of valuable t
professors. The raising of a capital
fund of $150,000, the interest of
which at 5 per cent will provide for t
ten yearly fellowships of $750 and
of $750 for an immediate award
this year is the special project of 1
the Alumnae Council.
"Awards will be made to alumna
of Michigan wishing to work either
here or elsewhere, or to graduates
of other schools coming to Michi-
gan. In special cases some of the
fund will be used for gift scholar-
ships to seniors," Miss Lloyd con-
tinued. She stated further that
$15,000 of the total fund will be
known as the Lucy Elliott Memorial
fund and the interest on this will
go to either a man or a woman.
When asked for her opinion on
scholarships for freshmen and
sophomores, Miss Lloyd said, "Peo-
ple hesitate to give their money to
students who are still untried and
unproven. I doubt very much if
there will ever be many prizes for
those who have not shown them-
selves excellent over a period of
university work."

Outstanding Player Named.
"The outstanding hockey player
in America is Miss Anne Townsend,
who was captain of the All-Phila-
delphia team and then of the All-
American team which went abroad
and played England and other
countries" the article states.
"Hockey," the author goes on to
say, gives the participants exciting
out-of-doors competition over quite
an extended period of time each
"In England it has become a vital
part of the lives of thousands of
women of all classes and the article
is concluded with the statement
that it is the hope that there will
be "an ever-increasing number of
coaches and umpires, of beautiful
green, clipped hockey fields for
every locality."

Members of Miss White's classes
have been quite enthusiastic over
the creative approach that is part
of her teaching method. "Dancing
is an art," she said, "and in a class
of thirty there are perhaps onlyI
four who will make dancers." How-
ever, she believes everyone in the
class benefits since just running
to music gives satisfaction.
At present Miss White is working
on the Freshman Pageant which
aims to give a history of music as
