It is difficult to be very helpful on
this subject (travel in England) in
the restricted space available. To one
visiting England for the first time,
and even to the seasoned traveler,
Muirhead's England, Scotland, Wales
and London in the "Blue Guide
Series" are indispensable. Also it is
well to join the English-Speaking
Union. Their spacious and beautiful
clubhouse is conveniently located in
Berkeley Square and their courteous
and efficient staff are ready to an-
swer questions on all sorts of sub-
jects: on routes, shopping, hiring a

London must be taken for granted,
except that one must not miss the
Tower, the Inns of Court, the Na-
tional Gallery, the National Portrait
Gallery, the Houses of Parliament
and Westminster Abbey.
Outside of London there are cer-
tain things that every tourist is ex-
pected to see, .Stratford-on-Avon,
Warwick Castle, the ruins of Kenil-
worth, and Canterbury Cathedral.
Obviously students should yearn to
see Oxford and Cambridge. The Ox-
ford High or High Street shares with
Princes Street. Edinburgh, the honor
of being one of the most beautiful
streets in Europe. Christ Church is
the smallest cathedral in England.
The town of Cambridge is not as in-
teresting as Oxford but the "backs"
or lawns sloping to the tiny river
Cam are unsurpassed and the choir
at King's College Chapel is heavenly.
Except for the marvelous Lake Dis-
trict, the most beautiful part of Eng-
land is the south and southern mid-
lands. Bath is teeming with literary
memories and is notable for its finej
Eighteenth Century houses. Wells is
near by with its fine cathedral and
exquisite Episcopal palace. Not far
off are the ruins of Glastonbury and
the ancient Pilgrim's Inn. Another
abbey is Tintern, which can be
reached by the Wye Valley, where
one can enjoy some of the finest
river scenery in England. The red-
rocked coast of South Devon lies only
a short way to the south. Clovelly
is a bit spoiled by trippers but re-
mains very quaint and Lynmouth and
Lynton are surpassingly beautiful.

Soviet Has Altered
Woman's Position
Women in Russia in the new order
of things are free and equal to men
in all respects, Mme. Lila Parginent
of the Russian literature department
stated in an interview. Before the
Revolution women of the higher
classes were free socially but never
on the same basis with men while
those of the lower classes were ac-
tual slaves.
This change has been brought
about by the fact that women of
the new Russia are expected to work,
Mme. Pargment stated. Everyone in
Russia works or he forfeits his right
to vote. Although the Russian gov-
ernment prefers to employ women it-
self, they are considered to be work-
ing if they keep house for persons
who are employed by the govern-
ment. The general trend is to keep
the Russian women from the kitchen
by the establishment of "factory kit-
chens" where food is prepared for the
whole community. These are under
the auspices of either the factory it-
self or the community as a whole.
With the woman working, family
life in Russia has taken a new turn.
Eight weeks' leave before and after
confinement is given to the woman
doing manual labor and six weeks
to the woman doing office work. She
is cared for in government-controlled
hospitals, as all medical care is
under the state. Salaries continue
during this time from a social in-
surance which has been especially
established for this purpose.
The opinion that Russian women
are lax in morals has been derived
from the fact that after the war they
were given freedom suddenly after
generations of repression and they
did not know how to use it. Under
the old regime divorce was practically
unknown because the church did not
recognize it and Women were finan-
cially dependent upon men. The only
professions that were open to women
then were medicine, dentistry, and
teaching and even those occupied in
these were few. Now there is no dif-
ference in work or pay for either



becoming re-established. The ruined
industries are being replaced by new
ones and re-population is taking;
place. It is by no means an unin-
teresting city to visit, although it is
1 more nearly a characteristic Euro-
pean city than Moscow, which is
completely Russian.
Traveling in Russia has been made
easy by travel bureaus which ar-
range for a guide who interprets,
pays all the bills, and arranges for
transportation while in the country.

improvement through the use of the
