Conference Of
MiThigan Deans
Held At League
'Let Us }Be Intelligent' Is
Theme Of Third Annual
"Let Us :Be Intelligent" was the
theme of the Third Neighborhood
Conference of Michigan Deans, held
yesterday at the League. Deans from
20 Michigan colleges attended the
Following registration and a gen-
eral assembly in the Grand Rapids
Room, at which Maxine Maynard,
'35, president of the League, presided,
a luncheon for the 90 delegates was
held in the A.B.C. room. Miss Alice
Lloyd, dean of women, gave a welcome
address, and introduced the -mistress
of ceremonies, Jean Keller, '35. Prof.
0. J. Campbell of :the: English de-
partment spoke on {'Intellectual We-
fare for the Student." Seated at the
speaker's table were Professor Camp-
bell,, Dean Lloyd, Miss Keller, Miss
,Maynard, Marie Metzger, "35, chair-
oman of the reception committee, who
rmade arrangements for the confer-
,ence, Barbara Sutherland, '35, Geor-
gina Karlson, '35, Mary Sabin, '35,
\Mary Ferris, '35, Mrs. Alexander G.
fauthven, Mrs. Bertha S. Davis, dean
of women at Western State Teach-
ers' College, and Miss Lydia Jones,
:dean of women at Michigan State
)Normal College.
Each dean was accompanied by
several student delegates from her
college, and after the luncheon, the
students were divided into six dis-
cussion groups, which were presided
over by members of the League Coun-
cil. The subjects of these discussion
.,groups were orientation, women's
-athletic associations, judiciary coun-
cils, social problems, finances, and
tcity colleges. A meeting of all the
deans was held in the Grand Rapids
Room at this time, at which housing,
the problems of the working girl, and
orientation, were discussed.
The closing feature of the confer-
ence was a general assembly held in
the Grand, Rapids Room. 'The chair-
omen of the. student groups summar-
;ized discussions held by the groups,
:sand Dean Lloyd reported the work
fidone in the deans' meeting. In com-
=menting upon the orientation prob-
lem as worked out at Michigan, Dean
Lloyd said, "Such an orientation pro-
-gram planned and supervised -by stu-
dents is one of the most important
things that has happened here in two
years. Another solution of the- ien-
tation problem was presented by the
delegation from Ypsilanti State Nor-
imal College, where each freshman
,woman is given a "campus sister,"
either a sophomore or a junior, who
,acquaints her with campus activities,r
and helps her to become adjusted to
college life. Each campus sister is
under the supervision -of a senior
woman known as a "campus captain."
Varying methods of carrying on
judiciary work were presented by the
judiciary council discussion group.
"The two -which were the most widely7
,used were the increasing of a woman.
.student's privileges regarding latet
fours in proportion to her year onf
campus, and the increasing of her
privileges .according to her scholar-

Rich, Solid' Colors
Are Favored For
Cloth Winter Coats
It is high time to be thinking
about winter coats now that the leaves
are practically gone and the air is
nippy most of the day. It is a little
premature for fur coats so it will be
better to mention some of the fabric
I coats that are being shown now.
The colors for winter coats are rich
solid ones of forest green, wine red,
rust, deep brown, and black. The lines
are for the most part fitted with an
occasional belted model for the
slender indi-vidual. Sleeves are tight
fitting at the wrist and usually very
full at the elbow.
Furs are being treated in ever new
ways, draped, dyed, and flaring. A
dull green coat of a plain fabric de-
pends wholly on the dyed green mole-
skin that composes the collar and
upper part of the sleeves. Another de-
signer chooses a belted coat of black
that .has sleek galyak for the entire
upper part of the model.
A more sumptuous fur is the fa-
crite mink combined with brown tree
bark fabric. The fur collar is the new
platter effect that is so flattering to
its wearer.
Beaver is an excellent choice for
rust materials and is ever so com-
fortable to fasten about the throat
in cold weather. A French copy coat
is the most startling of all. It is of
a very soft rust color and entirely
without fur "trim. The interest of
design is its best factor. The back
is gracefully bloused, the sleeves in-
tricately fashioned, and a flattering
ruching is at the neck. A narrow
belt on the front of the coat ties snug-
Wine is one of the best colors
this winter. One coat of great in-
terest is a mottled red fabric with
an immense natural lynx collar. The
sleeves are full at the elbow and pleat-
ed at the wrist.
Black and silver fox combined is
always a good combination, and de-
signed with this year's best features,
is a coat to be recommended.
Other furs that are being shown
this season are kolinsky, krimmer,
cross-fox, and fitch.

Too Little Emphasis Laid
On Intellectual Life In
Present Education'
The social and extra-curricular ac-
tivity blanketing the intellectual life
of University students received a se-
vere flaying in the address delivered
by Prof. 0. J. Campbell yesterday
before the Third Neighborhood Con-
ference of Michigan deans. "In our
organized efforts for helpful super-
vision of students' life," said Profes-
scr Campbell, "we have not so much
done unnecessary things as made all
the secondary things primary, and
all the primary things secondary."
That the students themselves were
not entirely responsible for the
anomaly, Professor Campbell con-
ceded. "Now may I be forgiven for
thinking that the officials who con-
trcl and supposedly direct under-
graduate life are partly responsible
for this absurd situation. They con-
cern themselves with everything un-
der the sun except the students' in-
tellects. We have deans of students{
who spend much time scrutinizing
and superintending the financial con-
dition of fraternities and sororities,
of seeing that their rushing is car-
ried on according to the latest rules;
they even register and tabulate the
marks of the various social groups,
and figure out to three or four deci-
mal points the averages. Yet these
officials do nothing to affect for the
better the situation which offers
them so much opportunity to be
Complexes Popular
Enumerating various unhelpful and
overemphasized phases in University
organization, Prof. Campbell declaredC
that the women are "mental-hygiene
conscious." "Almost every woman
who receives a mark below "C" in
any course hies herself to the place
appointed for psychoanalysis or to
any other official who offers her the

freshmen women who were noticed
included Betsy Baxter, Helen Doden-

gowned in pale green crepe; Marion
McDougall selected the fashionable
tunic frock in rough black crepe, and
Ann Edmunds chose a black velvet
gown. Blue velvet trimmed with er-
mine tails at the neck was worn by
Gertrude Sawyers.
The Theta Xi fraternity dance at-
tiacted a large number of the cam-

Barrus, and Anna Jean Chamberlain

recently selected members of Comedy
Club, selected a rust colored gown.
tique of the educatiorial system came
in his statement, "An intellectual)
life cannot be developed in three'
hours of a 16-hour working day, when
the social world in which a student
spends the other 13 is organized on
principles which are hostile to thatI
life." One of the chief faults of this
inimical atmosphere is the housing
Lituation that precludes intellectual!
privacy. "Fraternities and sororities
and girls' dormitories as I know them
have about as much peace as the
concourse of the Grand Central Sta-
tion." He continued, "Thought ofI
any originality demands quiet, peace
and a certain amount of solitude.
I have long believed that the legisla-
tion that would do most to stimulate
the intellectual life here at Michigan
is the immediate abolition of room-I
