Dorothy Thompson Tells
Views At Dormitory In
After her lecture last night in Hill
Auditorium, Dorothy Thompson, wife
of Sinclair Lewis, was entertained in-
fonally at Martha Cook Building
as the guest of Mrs. Kathleen Codd
and Miss Sara Rowe.r
Among the guests present were Miss
Ethel McCormick, Mrs. C. S. Yoakum,
Miss Alice Lloyd, Mrs. Randolph G.
Adams, Mrs. Jesse S. Reeves, Miss
Reeves, Mrs. Lucille Conger, and sev-
eral members of Alpha Chi Omega
soi ority, to which Miss Thompson be-
Punch and cookies were served in
the Blue Room by Mary Delnay, '36;
Jean Hollenbeck, '37; Eraine Hem-
meter, '37; and Grace Woodley, '37.
Marguerite Creighton sang a selec-
tion from Carmen and a song en-
titled Ashes of Roses.
Although Miss Thompson did not
give a speech, she was bombarded
with questions by women who had
heard her lecture. One of her most
interesting views is that America to-
day is far more absorbing than Eu-
rope. Any expected debacle in Eur-
ope, she said depends upon a far
more important debacle in Amer-
ica, where, she believes, a revolution
is taking place, that will shape the
course of American national life as
profoundly as did the Civil war.
If she were to graduate from col-
lege now, Miss Thompson said, she
would not go to Europe. She would
spend three years learning to know
conditions in the United States, work-
ing first on a San Francisco paper,
she explained, then on a Los Angeles
paper, perhaps then take a sojourn
in Seattle, and finally go to Washing-
Economics, political science, and
history are the best college subjects
for a newspaperwoman, Miss Thomp-
son believes. History cannot be em-
phasized too much, she said, because,
like Goethe, she believes man cannot
know anything about today without
an intimate knowledge of the past 3,-
Miss Thompson attended University
of Chicago her first college year, and
then finished at Syracuse University
in two years because she was "boredr

To That Of Typical

Commending America for its free-
dom and efficiency, Charmaine Tseu,
'37, Shanghai, compared the demo-
cratic informality of University stu-
dents here with the strict formality
of students in her own country in an
Miss Tseu's first name, Charmaine,
was adopted at the suggestion of her
brother, Tsangtze, who has spent
many years in France. Charmaine
is equivalent to the name Tsangming
Born In Chekiang
Born in Chekiang, situated in
southern China, Miss Tseu attended
the Virginia School for Girls, an
American missionary school. Follow-
ing her graduation, she studied medi-
cine at the German Institution at
Shanghai, and came directly to Mich-
igan, arriving here last September.
Miss Tseu originally planned to get
her college education in Germany, but
her family objected to "Hitler's race
theory." Consequently, on the
recommendation of a friend, she de-
cided to enter the College of Phar-
macy of this University - expecting
to teach or to enter into clinical work
in her home land in the future.
Likes American Spirit
"I am impressed with the friendli-
ness of the studetson this campus,"
she said. "In China everyone is so
reserved. I have noticed here that
people whom I don't know often greet
me on passing. This could never
happen at a Chinese university."
Miss Tseu, an accomplished pian-
ist, regrets not being able to continue
her studies in this field, due to the
fact that her work in pharmacy leaves1
her no leisure time. She stated that1
occidental instruments, especially the
violin and piano, are very popular
with Chinese students.
Another interesting fact disclosed

The student body as a group has hib-

No blaring trumpets will break the
frosty week-end stillness surrounding
fraternity houses. Even the chink of
glasses at the Bell will have a sub-
dued tone, and the dogs who stalk
squirrels back of Haven Hall have
desisted from their daily pastime. A

Sport Styles Decree Plaid
Skirts, Tweed Jackets In
One must admit that a coat is a
very important article of apparel from
the point of view of style and neces-
sity alike. But the dress that goes
under the coat is equally important -
particularly as it is seen more than
usual this year beneath the hem of a
swagger style fur or cloth coat.
For Sports Wear
For sports wear, any nice tweed
jacket or sweater and skirt combina-
tion is, as usual, good. Incidentally,
sweaters, though they have had a long
run since last October, will continue
to be popular up through April in
lighter yarns and pastel shades. Sport
dresses in warm, colored wool are
equally good. Plaids are particularly
attractive this year -not too definite
or bright (except in scarfs), but in-
determinate and soft.
For afternoon tea or Sunday eve-
nings, there are numerous charming
styles. Most of them are suitable
now, even though they definitely sa-
vour of spring. Others will be most
welcome through March and April.
A navy-blue frock of sheer wool with
small white pique collar and lacings
on the cuffs is both youthful and
Grey For Afternoon
A delightful afternoon tea dress in
grey crepe is made with hundreds
of small graceful pleats which are
bound into tucks in the bodice and
shoulders. The fullness of skirt makes
it ideal for dancing. Black silk jersey

son." Made up into a short-sleeved
afternoon dress with the ever-popular
tucks flared out into another full,'
