First Meeting
Of Assembly
Held Yesterday
Independent Women Are
Urged To Participate In
League Activities
Presidents of the campus league
houses attended the first meeting of
Assembly, organization for indepen-
dent women, at 5 p.m. yesterday at
the League.I
The purpose of the meeting was to
explain to them the rules regarding
the organization of independent
women and to familiarize them with
the governmental system employed
by Assembly.
Three members of the League
Council spoke at the meeting. Mary
Andrew, '37, president of Assembly;
Maryanna Chockley, '37, head of the
Judiciary Council; and Marjorie
Mackintosh, '37, chairman of the
publicity committee, were the speak-
Explains Zoning Systems
Miss Andrew explained the zoning
system to the assembled house pres-
idents. She stated that there were
three representatives from each Zone
who kept the girls in touch with
League activities.
The opportunities offered by the
League library were also presented by
Miss Andrew. She urged all women
to take advantage of this place of
study. Announcement of the series
of luncheons for unaffiliated women
was also made at the meeting. The
luncheons will be held in the Rus-
sian tea room of the League some-
time in the near future, Miss Andrew
The importance of taking part in
extra-curricular activities was em-
phasized by Miss Andrew. She hand-
ed out activity cards to the assembled

director of the League, also encour-

Tells About Newspaper
The "League Lantern,' a newspa-
per being published by the League,
was described by Miss Mackintosh,;
editor of the publication. Unusual
features of the paper were mentioned
and also the special rate of three
subscriptions for 75c each instead
of the ordinary price of $1 for a single
Miss Mackintosh stated that the
first issue will be a special orientation
edition and there will be no charge
for it. She urged the women to sub-
scribe to the magazine in order to
keep in touch with the League and
its activities.
Many of the women at Northwest-t
ern University have admitted that
one of the reasons why their parents
sent them to college was simply to
place them in a favorable marriage
market, according to Dr. George W.
Crane of that University. He be-t
lieves that young people should selectr
their mates where there is a large
variety to choose from.r

Waits For Flier

Chinese Girlis
See Opportunity
I HeE d Ucati
Colleges Train Women For
Professional Work Says
Dr. Yi-FangWu
Chinese girls are strikingly differ-
ent from their counterparts in Amer-
ican life, according to Dr Yi-Fang
Wu, president of Ginling College,
China, who spoke last night at the
First Baptist Church.
A college education is regarded as
a rare opportunity by Chinese wom-
en, said Dr. Wu in an interview pre-
ceding her talk. They take it so
seriously that Chinese educators find.
the main problem confronting them
that of preventing the students from
oveiwcrking. Educational opportu-
nities for women are much less ac-
cessible in China than in America.
College is regarded, not as a mar-
riage mart, but as a training for a
career, she continued. Among the
fields in which women are attempt-
ing to gain prominence in that coun-
try are the once forbidden ones of
medicine, law, business and educa-
tion. Today women graduates are
much in demand and a job awaits
each one when she leaves college.
Chinese college women marry much
later than American students, Dr.
Wu said, but they are expected to
combine marriage with a career. Re-
futing many opinions held in this
country on the subject of careers for
women, Chinese women usually man-
age to make a success of married
life. Although laws have been passed
permitting divorce, it is exceedingly
rare in China, Dr. Wu stated.
China is fast becoming American-
ized, and in this new movement Dr.
Wu is oneoftthe leaders. Among the
projects that are being encouraged
is adult education. China is endeav-
oring by these methods to bring her
people out of the dark ages into the
light of modern civilization.
Dr. Wu is making her present lec-
ture tour for the purpose of r'aising
the sum of $50,000 for Ginling Col-
lege, so-called sister college of Smith.

10 "Sure' Remedies
To_0Hold In Reserve
or Those Hiccups
All of us at one time or another
lhave been stricken by the severe and
annoying ailment of hiccups. It is a
malady which has absolutely no mor-
als as to where and when to make its
appearance. A siege may start in
classes, at a conference, at a dinner,
during a heavy date, at a movie, or
practically any place except at home,
where they could be enjoyed in
Some persons are ignorant of the
ways in which this social pest can
be scotched: hence the following
variegtated suggestions on what to
do when faced with an attack of hic-
Place the index finger of the right
hand to the hollow of the neck ana
press firmly for seven minutes.
Eat three dry crusts of bread.
Sit before an open window in a
rocking ciair and breathe deeply.
Wrap a towel saturated. with ice-
water around your head and cough
three times.
Hold breath as long as possible.
Drink a glass of water by putting.
the lips to the "other," or far rim of
the glass.
Hold a glass of water on your
head for 12 minutes.
Get a terrific scare.
Take 13 swallows of water slowly.
Turn five handsprings.
And if you're really interested in
hiccups make a study of how dif-
ferent environments affect the dura-
tion of the attack. The date might'
prove extremely important some day.
Kappa Sigma fraternity is enter-
taining its sister sorority, Chi Omega,
at a buffet supper tomorrow evening.
Gene Caldwell, '39E, is in charge of
arrangements for the affair.

Perfume Has History
A new fragrance with an exciting
history has been put on the cosmetic
counters recently. Its creator is re-
puted to have been banished from
his country because his perfume oc-
casioned such a stir in a certain
European court.
Even Saturday classes would look
bright to the person who was the
proud possessor of a bottle of this
intriguing, heady odor. You can get
it in bath powders, oils and lotions
too. And the bottle itself without its
delicate perfume is worth having, for
it bears an interesting foreign label.

Pool Hours For
Women Changed
In accordance with the large num-
ber of requests last year, the Union
swimming pool has been opened to
women every day from 1:45 p.m. to
3 p.m. at which time there will be
both classes and free swimming. All
women interested" are urged to at-
tend as this will be done for a trial
period only, and the size of atten-1
dance will determine whether it will,
remain open at this time for the
remainder of the year.J
Other hours open to women are 9
to 11 a.m. Saturdays and 7:30 to'
9:30 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Consolation Matches
Planned For Tennis
The W.A.A. is planning a consola-
tion tennis tournament in connection
with the women's matches now being
played off, to be held if a large enough
group sign up for the original affair.
If such is the case, according to Hope
Hartwig, '38, tennis manager, the
winner of the consolation matches
may have an opportunity to play the
winner of the regular contest.
