to Reach All


Violation of League House Rules
Cited by Sallie E.sminger,
Head of Council.OI



Use of

of Others Governs
Building as


Starting a campaign to acquaint
women with its purpose and organ-
ization, the judiciary council, as a
part of the self-governing system
of Michigan women, is instituting
an advisory plan through which it
hopes to reach every woman on
"We wish to remind each woman
that the council stands ready to
help her at all times with any prob-
lems which may arise, and that
she should feel free to come to the
council or its members at any time
for advice or information," stated
Sallie Ensinenger, '32, chairman.
"There is a false notion from
former years," Miss Ensminger
went on, "which regards the cdun-
cil as purely an agent of criticism.
This supposition is baseless, for the
council exists primirily for cooper-
ation, and only asks the coopera-
tion of the women in return."
"We are established in the name
of Michigan women," she continu-
ed, "and each member has her duty
to the whole group, to consider as
much as her own individual re-
sponsibilities. As long as the dean
of women feels that we are capable.
of handling our own problems, dis-
cipline will remain in our own
hands. However, if it is felt that
we, as Michigan women, are not
capable of meeting situations which
arise, or that under suchpa sys-
tem, our behavior as a group is un-
disciplined and negligible, then
the right to discipline. ourselves
will be denied, and we will have
failed in our aspirations as a self-
governing body."
League is Club House.
"There is a definite set of
League rules, which have been en-
acted by all women on campus
through their board of representa-
tives. It is up to each woman to
acquaint, herself with these rules,
and to regard their strict obser-
vance as a personal sight of that
the ).eague is a club house for
Michigan woman, and is not open
to the public. Every one of us, hav-
ing this interest at heart, must
consider it as such, and help our
making it a club where we may at
all times feel at home."
Rules Violated.
"In this consideration, a viola-
tion of the rules has arisen which
has been a considerable annoyance
in the League to the people in
charge, the members, and to their
visitors. This violation has been
in the form of undignified behav-
ior with men in the various lounges
of the building. Such a breach of
etiquette is not only painfully em-
barrassig to anyone coming into
the room to study or read, but is
indicative of poor taste and incon-
sideration on the part of the of-
"If, as individuals, we remember
that this building as a club is open
at all times to the use of the mem-
bers, we will conduct ourselves in
such a way that no other members
will need feel embarrassed, or feel
that her rights as a member of the

Women Manage the Home, Act
As Business Heads, Care
for Large Estates
Prof. Ralston Hayden -of the po-
litical science department, who has
just returned from the Philippine
Islands, says that the position of
women there is a very exalted one
owing to three hundred years of
Spanish culture and Christianity
enjoyed by them prior to American
intervention in 1898. I{
"The Filipino has culture and po-
iteness as well as a chivraious at-
itude. towards women that Spain
and the influx of Latincivilization
brought them," he declared. "Wo-
men manage the home, arrange
the education of the children, often
manage large estates as well as
very often being the business mem-
ber of the family. General Wood
calls her 'the best man of the is-
Among the peasant class she is
often subjected to manual labor of
the most tedious sort; that which
required in rice-planting of each
blade of rice being thrust in two
feet of muck under water. There is
no social stigma attached to this
work and it is made a festive so-
cial occasion as fifty women wil
work in a field of one neighbor one
day and in the field of another the
"They do not have woman suff-
rage but the majority of women
do not ask it. The House of Rep-
resentatives is ready to pass a bill
granting it but is blocked by the
Senate. Women have great politi-
cal influence but are not united in
demanding the franchise. Many
well-educated - women feel that
their influence and great position
would be endangered by placing
themselves on the same level as
men ,are. Many more of them oc-

Smart Ensemble Features Jacket
And Skirt in Harmonious
Color Scheme.
Among the smartest of the new
modes for this fall is the jacket
and skirt ensemble in harmonious
shades of brown and rust. The
skirt is of the plainness that spells
chic. It is made of a dark brown
wool crepe and measures nine
inches from the floor. The neck-
line of the jacket which is made
of the same material as the skirt
in a spanish tile shade is construct-
ed of lapses which are most suit-'
able for the college miss.
The jacket is folded over the
front and buttoned on the left by
three large buttons of the same
shade as the skirt. It is finished
by a wool crepe belt which accen-
tuates a slender waist.

for they are pharmacists, lawyers,
physicians and on faculties of the
universities. Marriage does not in-
terfere with their pursuit of a voca-

Professor Hayden says that the
status of woman has changed
amazingly in all parts of the Orient
touched by foreign influence. The
young have rebelled against par-
ental rule and now make their own
marriages. Since the Chinese are
so practical a people; woman's em-
ancipation has been developed
along practical lines. They are in-
d.pendent as individuals and prac-
tice teaching, medicine and the
administration of medical enter-
pnrises. The Chinese girl has de-
signed a very striking costume
evolved from a combination of Eu-
ropean and Manderin style. Mod-
ern dance-hall 're to be found in
Tokio, costing tensen a dance and
aided by collegiate music; a thing
unbelievable ten years ago.
Tomen Interested in Selves and
Not Jobs Never Get Far,
"Girls who are more interested in
themselves than they are in their
jobs will never get very far in busi-
ness" advises Owen Ford in an
article entitled "How To Keep A
Job" appearing in a recent issue of
McCall's magazine. The competition
is too keen, he says, and that while
some girls quit work at four forty-
five to study the color of their new
nail polish, some more ambitious
girl will be staying late to~study the
job ahead.
This vital question of keeping a
job resolves back to personality, not
in a superficial sense of wearing the
right sort of clothes, using the cor-
rect brand of complexion, or smil-
ing in the most, pleasing way, but
rather in the matter of thoughtfully
expressing our innermost thoughts
and ideas-our character. If we re-
veal this stuff we're made of to be
loyalty, courage, honesty, and pa-
tience, we have a magical poweri
that inevitably opens the doors to.

The degree of B. S. is of doubtful'
aid, affirms one person interview-
ed, although the knowledge can
not be other than an advantage. It
is the personality of the woman
,that counts, she affirmed.
Schools have been established ini
large department stores to teach
this kind of work, but because of
the general business depression,.
two stores in Detroit have closed
their schools.
The salaries of buyers are fairly'
high. A linen buyer, for example,
if she is very good in her line, may
receive a salary of $4,000 a year
and will be sent to Ireland or other
parts of the world perhaps three
times during the year. A buyer,
especially a buyer of clothes must
have the ability to forcast fash-
