Woman Student Made Member
of Law Review' Because
of Fine Record.
WOMEN SELDOM CHOSEN
Because of her unusually high
scholastic record last year, Mrs.
Florence Frankel, '31L, was recently
made a member of the "Law Re-
view" staff, the official organ of
the Law school. Last year, she re-
ceived only one grade below 'an A, '
and that was a B, the first sem-
ester.
Mrs. Frankel is a graduate of the
University of Illinois, in the class
of '27. She majored in French there,
and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa
in her junior year. She took her
first year of law at Western Re-
serve college, Cleveland, Ohio.
This nonor is one which is sel-
dom accorded to women, but Mrs.
Frankel's consistently high average
was taken as a proof of her ability.
Chauffeuring, as well as other
forms of employment, has been
provided for many women students
at the University of Hawaii.

Professor Robert E. Rogers, of the
Massachusetts Institute of Tech-
nology, recently attracted nation-
wide attention by saying that
women teachers are largely respon-
sible for many of the defects in our
educational system. The speech
which caused the disturbance was
in part as follows:
"Our boys and girls have not
been taught to think. They are
interested in applications, n o t
principles. They have had no
fundamental instruction in ethics
and conduct, in the problems of
society and government, in genuine
science as opposed to tinkering.
They reach maturity ignorant of
these things and unable to criti-
cize in any but the most superficial
way.
"The faults I have been speaking
of are the faults of women teach-
ers: preoccupation with method,
interest in details, insistence on
discipline, disinclination for poli-
tical, mathematical, and philo-
sophical thinking; an inclination to
insist on abstract beliefs to be
accepted docilely, rather than the
free give-and-take of criticism.
"Man knows that truth is a
plural kind of thing, capable of
containing, and even sustaining,
many inconsistencies and contra-
dictions . . . Woman is a monist.

She likes to mold and shape things
over-her husband, her sons, her
community .."
"I call your attention to the key
words here: 'leadership,' 'inspira-
tion,' 'great moral issues,'-the old,
old line of goods that during two
generations our schools have been
selling instead of the hard facts
and tough thinking we need so
badly. Incomplete Platonists all of
us, living in an imperfect world
that exists in perfection only in
our minds."
Miss Ruth Yap, instructor in the
University of Hawaii mathematics
department, recently acquired some
early mathematics findings. She
found that the Chinese used cubic
equations a thousand years before
Carden, and the Horner method of
approximating roots centuries be-
fore Horner was born.

Martha Cook Receives Portrait
of University Head.
President Alexander G. Ruthven
has presented his autographed por-

His picture, which arrived Tuesday

completely than it was last year
by the women students themselves.
The real purpose of this newly
created organization will be to
offer varied opportunities to those
women, who are interested in the
theatre as a recreation.
The group definitely will not
enter into campus dramatic compe-
tition, but will endeavor to put the
theatre to the best use. Among the
projects suggested for activity have
been a series of plays for children,
to be presented on Saturday morn-
ings, a marionette theatre, and the
backing of certain artistic produc-
tions offering opportunities for ex-
periment in publicity and theatre
management.
Start as Unprecedent Project.
In order to start the group as
an altogether unprecedent project,
care must be taken that its early
presentations be successful and
therefore the first entertainment
which the members will undertake
to present will be a play for chil-
dren to be given Saturday morn-
ings in November. Nine children
will b.e included in the cast for the
prologue and wIl be chosen from
the Tappan School Players, who
have offered to co-operate with the
new group in theit projects for
children.
The 25 womenselected for mem-
bership in the group will meet for
the first time at 4 o'clock next Mon-
day afternoon in the Garden room
of the League building. G .

'First Lady' of Canada
Is Sister of Minister
Miss Mildred Bennett, sister of
the prime minister of Canada, the
Hon. Richard Bennett, is "first
lady"' of Canada, because of her
brother's bachelorship. Prime Min-
ister Bennett and his sister are of
the ninth generation of the family
on the American continent.
Miss Bennett is said to be one of
the most charming women in Cana-
da, and an able and eloquent speak-
er. She materially aided her broth-
er by her speeches in his campaigr
to defeat the former premier, the
Hon. Mackenzie King.
