until 11 o'clock Friday and Satur-
day night, and from 3 until 5 o'clock
Saturday afternoon.
This is probably the largest func-;
tion of its kind ever to be held in
Ann Arbor; more than 1,400 invita-
tions have been issued.
Regents Will Be Guests.
During the evening the guests
will include the Regents of the Uni-
versity, members of the faculty,
members of the legislature, who
will spend Friday night at the Un-
16n, town~speople, and some few
guests from Detroit. On Saturday
afternoon the guests are to include
students on campus, heads of all
the organized league houses, and
various presidents of the different
dampus activities and organiza-
tions.
,The plan is so arranged on Fri-
day and Saturday nights that the
guests will have an opportunity to
she all of the furnishings of both
Balls in their entirety. Guests to
night are to be received in Mosher
hall, from where they will be con-
ducted to the third floor where the
lli v i n g accommodations will be
thrown open for inspection. From
there they will cross over into Jor-
dan hall where refreshments will
be served in the dining room. Once
more they will return to the draw-
ing rooms of Mosher, thus having
made a complete circuit of the two
halls.
Receiving Lines Announced.
The receiving lines for the var-
ious times are as follows: to night
in Mosher hall, Anne Davenport,
'31, Miss Inez Bozorth, President
Alexander Ruthven and Mrs. Ruth-
ven, Mr. and Mrs. Shirley Smith,
Miss Lloyd, Anna Lyle Spain, '32
and Miss Ethel McCormick will in-
troduce the guests to the line.
Tomorrow night the receiving
line in Jordan hall will be the same
as the preceding night except that
Margaret Mix, '31, will take the
place of Anne Davenport, and Es-
ther Emery, '32, will take the plac
of Anna Lyle Spain. Tomorrow af-
ternoon the receiving lines will be
as follows: in Mosher Mrs. A. J
Buffington, Anne Davenport, Anna
Lyle Spain, Margaret Davidson, '33
and Nolda McCamley, '34, in Jor-
dan, Miss Isabelle Dudley, Margaret
Mix, Esther Emery, Polly Walker,
'33, and Olive Dawes, '34.

that for many years there has been
a movement afoot in India for the
freedom of women from the retire-
ment in which they have been forc-
ed to remain up to this time. This
movement has been causing a sub-
tle stirring in the under-current
of Indian social life, and it origin-
ated even before the clamoring to-
ward nationalism which is now so
very much in themforeground.
Women Become Modern.
As an example of the difference
between the condition of women
now and in the past, Mr. Durant
related how he had dined with an
Indian woman representative of the
women of the higher caste in Mad-
ras, and how they had discussed
many conditions and problems of
the country. She was a member of
the city council and had educated
her daughter in an American col-
lege-seemingly she was just like
any woman of America in her opin-
ions and attitudes.
Entramural

der this bureau, a system whereby'
a student who organizes a group of,
ten other students for a European
tour secures his passage free, while
the members of the group also en-
joy reduced rates. More than sixty
people traveled abroad under the
N. S. F. A. auspices last summer,
and were entertained by members
of the Confederation Internationale
des Edudiantes, the world-wide or-
ganization of which N. S. F. A. is
a member.
International debating is another
of the projects which has been un-
dertaken. Teams have been brought
over from Germany, England, and
Turkey, and engagements are made
wil;h any schools interested. Radio
broadcasting over the Columbia
broadcasting system is being fost-
ered, also, and weekly and monthly
speakers present topics of inter-
est to students.
A plan of securing discount serv-
ice for students throughout the
country has been evolved, and is
awaiting the approval of the Con-
gress to b put into execution. The
idea is to issue identification cards
to all college and university mem-
bers, whereby reduction in hotel
rates, transportation fares, and~
even -living necessities may be se-
cured.
