Mass Meeting
Attracts Many
Junior Women
Stressing the fact that the one
opportunity afforded to the women
on this campus to joi together in
presenting a project is given during
the production of the traditional Jun-
ior Girls Play, Dr. Margaret Bell
opened the mass meeting of the jun-
ior women which was held at 5 p.m.
yesterday in the League Ballroom.
Dr. Bell also stated that out of
every class that enters the University,
only 150 women go all the way
through school. It is only in the
junior year, that the women ar- given
the chance to become acquainted with

the members of their class while
working together in their class pro-
Dr. Bell added that it was essen-
tial for all of the women to remain
in excellent physical condition while
working on the play.
Dean Alice Lloyd spoke on the tra-
dition that the play has become in
campus life. She gave a history of
the production - starting with the
first play which was presented in
1904 in Barbour Gymnasium, and
continuing to the present musical
revue, "Sprize!i"
Edith Zerbe, '37, chairman of this
year's play, introduced the members
of the central committee to the class
as well as the principle speakers. Miss

been completed by the central com-
mittee, and will be presented for Dean

proval this week.

New Style In Hats
Is First Ha,'binger
Spring Season
Hats this spring show many varied
influences, but the Chinese and Flem-
ish trends seem to be the most pre-
dominant. A peasant bonnet de-
signed by Maria Guy, showing the
Flemish influence particularly at-
tracted our attention, with its off
the face brim, and tricky little veil.
A Chinese coolie hat, with a square
ornament appeared very striking, but
rather difficult to wear, for the crown
is so exceedingly shallow. A more
flattering model, again showing the
Chinese influence, and designed by
Maria Guy, is that with a shallow
crown but deep brim, which is very
becoming to the type of girl who
possesses a long narrow profile.
In addition to those hats illustrat-
ing a Chinese influence, one also
notes the sixteenth century coach-
man's hat, with its stove-pipe crown
and broad brim. A variation of this
type is the felt bowler designed by
Mado, high in back, and dipped in
front. This particular angle seems
to berrather popular this spring, and
is very easy to wear.
In fact, the sixteenth century influ-
ence is so popular in Paris at present
that models range anywhere from
those which copy exactly the hats of
Henry III to those of a coachman of
the same era.

Tryouts For Male Cast
Will Be Held Tomorrow
Tryouts for adult male parts in
"Robin Hood or the Queen's Page,"
the second production of the Chil-
dren's Theatre which will be present-
ed March 6 and 7 in the Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre, will be held from
4 to 6 p.m. tomorrow at the League,
according to Valentine B. Windt, di-
This play has a large number of
good parts for men, according to
Mr. Windt. It is planned that the
cast will be selected before the second
semester so that rehearsals may start
with the beginning of classes. The
date for tryouts for women will be
announced later.

Pub ic School System Of
Homeland Described By
l-ucrecia Ruisanchez
Lucrecia Ruisanchez, '39, believes
that, in spite of the weather, Ann
Arbor is a more charming place than
the University of Puerto Rico, with
its white frescoed buildings and palm
trees. Her sister, Maria, received her
M.S. from here last June, and Lu-
crecia came to her commencement,
visiting the campus for the first time.
"I liked it so well that I just stayed
here and went to summer school," she
She plans to major in sociology andI
minor in French, and is taking Eng-i
lish, French, history and political
science. After commencement,bshe
will return to Puerto Rico to be a
social worker. Her sister, who con-
centrated in chemistry, is now teach-
ing at the Humacao High School in
Puerto Rico.
English Taught In Schools
Before coming to Ann Arbor, Lu-I
crecia had spent seven years in New
York. Upon her first visit to the
United States, she had no difficulty
in understanding English, for it isj
taught from the first grade in all the
schools in Puerto Rico. It is spoken
a great deal in the cities, and entirely
in the schools, all of the textbooks
being written in English. However,
Spanish remains the universal lan-
guage in the homes and in the coun-
try, where the children seldom go
beyond the fifth grade of grammar
In her photograph album, Lucrecia
had a great many pictures of the Uni-

versity of Puerto Rico at San Piebas.
The buildings are constructed on
the Spanish style, and the campus is
covered with beautiful trees and
shrubs that bloom the year around.
The Beach Club in San Juan, the
capital, is the favorite rendezvous of
the young people. A twelve-piece
orchestra plays for dancing in the
spacious ballroom, and outside, there
is a long bridge that spans the har-
bor. There, and along the rocky
beach, there are many beautiful
Describes Curious Language
Lucrecia is a graduate of the Hu-
macao High School of Puerto Rico,
where she was a member of the So-
cial Science Circle. Shortly before
her departure for the United States,
this club gave a picnic in her honor.
On her invitation was a clever cartoon
of a girl in a tiny boat midway be-
tween Puerto Rico and the United
States. It was written in a curious
language, which is really English as
a Spaniard would pronounce it:
"Umakao-Jai-Skul (Humacao High
School): The Fourteen maniakz kor-
dialli ynbite jou tu e piknik tu bi
zelevrated on Mey 30, 1934."
Lucrecia will stay in Ann Arbor
for the remaining two and a half
years of her college career, not re-
turning to Puerto Rico until she grad-
Mrs. W. H. McLaren, Mrs. E. C.
Whipple, Mrs. M. S. Elliott and Mrs.
J. B. High are chairmen for the
meeting- of the handicraft division
of the fine arts department of the
Ann Arbor Women's Club which will
meet at 2:30 p.m. today in the League.
