Hayden Talks
On Education
In Philippines
Concentration, Uniformity
Are Stressed In Speech
To Alumnae Club
Prof. Joseph Hayden spoke to mem-
bers of the Michigan Alumnae Club
on "Education in the Philippines" at
a meeting of this group at 2:30 p.m.
yesterday in the League.
Uniformity of education and con-
centration of the system at the hands
of insular authorities at Manila are
the outstanding characteristics of the
system of instruction in the islands,
Professor Hayden stated. This uni-
formity is necessary for a people liv-
ing in the tropics, he believes, and has
developed here a spirit of nationality.
The majority of teaching is for
grades below high school, the speaker
stated; 80 per cent of the people being
in primary grades, 15 per cent in
intermediate schools and only 5 per
cent in high school. All teaching is
carried on in the English language,
he continued, which gives a large
number of persons the opportunity to
become teachers, professional people,
holders of government offices and
clerical positions because of their
command of the language.
The people of the Philippines are
very proud of their educational sys-
tem, Professor Hayden remarked, and
are more willing to give appropria-
tions through the legislature for this
cause than for improvements in
health conditions. There are now
7,000 students enrolled in the Uni-
versity of the Philippines, he stated.
The main purpose of the Michigan
Alumnae Club is the collecting of a
fund for scholarships and fellowships.
All dues are being used now solely
for the G. Carl Huber fellowship. Any
woman who has at any time attended
the University is eligible for mem-
bership in the club.
Mrs. A. O. Lee, president of the club,
introduced the speaker and an-
nounced that Miss Alice Alexander
would speak at the next meeting on
April 4. Dean Clarence Yoakum will
be guest speaker for the May meeting,
she continued.
Of Graduates
A betrothal of interest on the Uni-
versity of Michigan campus is that

Both Small And Massive

Pastel Colors
The fresh gaiety of spring is echoed
in this spring's intriguing array of
new compacts. Tiny compacts prove
to be popular-one style is very small
and round and made of either gold
or silver on the sides and bottom -
the top being either black or white
with a design in the middle of the
same metal as the sides and bottom.I
The design may also assume the
form of a cameo. A simple adaption
of these compacts is one that is made
of either gold or silver in a lacy form
or the plain compact with a mirror
A Yardley compact of gold is des-
tined to become one of the favorites
of the season. It is a double com-
pact, rectangular in shape, with a
mirrored top which slides off reveal-
ing powder and rouge in separate
compartments joined by a hinge. The
convenient and odd manner in which
this compact works encourages one
