Radio Debate
To Inaugurate
1933-34 Year
A radio debate to be held Nov. 10
will officially open the women's 1933-
34 debating season, Floyd K. Riley
of the speech department announced
yesterday.

"Resolved that all radio broadcast-
ing shall be conducted in stations
owned and controlled by the Federal
government," will be the question
of the debate. This is also this year's
official proposition for the Michigan
High School Forensic Association and
will be considered throughout the
year by the teams of all the high
schools of the state.
Frances Drake, '36, Alpha Chi
Omega, and Dorothy Saunders, '35,
will uphold the affirmative side of
the question, while Roberta Thomp-
son, '34, and Harriet Kesselman, '35,
Alpha Epsilon Phi, will oppose them
on the negative. Miss Drake has had
debating experience in Monroe, while
Miss Saunders was a member of the
Ohio State University varsity debate
squad last year. Miss Kesselman held
a position on the freshman squad
at the University of Wisconsin.,
It is interesting to note that this
question of Federal ownership of
radio stations will be debated from 3
until 4 p. m. this afternoon over the
NBC and Columbia networks by two
teams of nationally known author-
ities.
Prof. E. C. Buehler, of Kansas Uni-
versity, Dr. H. L. Newbach, of the
University of Wisconsin, and Prof.1

By DOROTHY GIES
The age-old Oriental past and the
revolutionizing Occidental present
have clashed with amazing sudden-
ness in China in recent years, accord-
ing to I-Djen Ho, a Chinese girl
studying here.
I-Djen's grandmother, for instance,
never attended school, and her feet
were bound as her ancestors' had
been for centuries. Then when she
grew up she became intensely inter-
ested in the modernist movement
seeping in from the West. She started
one of the first girls schools in China,
organized women's clubs all over the
country, and was also one of the first
to advocate unbound feet for Chi-
nese women. This latter may seem
a somewhat trivial accomplishment,
until it is remembered that bound
feet made it virtually impossible to
walk, and the breakage from this
old custom symbolized a new free-
dom for Chinese women.
I-D en's home in Soochow has
more than a hundred rooms. In
China the sons of a family do not
wander away and found homes of
their own; instead, when each mar-
ries, he simply adds a new unit to
the home of his ancestors. The house,
therefore, is made up of a number of
courtyards with rooms opening off,
each suite constituting one unit of
the family. In the center of the
house is an immense assembly room,
and it is here the whole family meets
for the solemn and festive occasions
of funerals and weddings.
The greatest celebration of the
Chinese calendar is New Year's.
often the festivities begin a week
beforehand and last well into the
month. To Chinese children it is a
combination of our Christmas and
Fourth of July. They go to bed
scarcely able to sleep for eagerness,
and they all try to wake up as soon
as possible to shoot off the first fire-
cracker.
Gift-giving is part of New Year's
too, and particularly are the elders
in the household remembered. Cer-
tain gifts of food are always asso-
ciated with the holiday, and acre
made only for this occasion. "Djung-
tze" consists of rice-balls filled with
seasoned meat or sweets, the whole
wrapped in bamboo leaves. Another
dainty, yuen pao, dates its origin in
the early days of Chinese history
when one's wealth consisted of lumps
of silver and gold molded into a cu-
rious shape. For New Year's Day,
rice-flour cakes are made into this

same shape to represent treasure,
and sent to one's best friends.
Weddings are another occasion for
celebration. There is, first of aall, a
great procession, if the wedding is
an important one at all, from the
groom's home to the bridle's and
thence back again. There are cymbal-
beaters, drummers, bearers of "hap-
piness" signs, lantern-bearers, fan-
bearers, canopy-4bearers, dragon-
bearers, and finally in an elaborately
embroidered sedan chair comes the
bride herself-in pink, for that is
the traditional bride's color.
The wedding feast is as long and
impressive as the procession. A me-
dium-sized feast consists of 32
courses ,and a fairly important one
of 64. In between the courses des-
serts are served, instead of at the
end-both salted and sweet tidbits.
