Childre To Act.
About half the roles in the pro-

Student's Informal Manner
Makes Good Impression
By BETSY ANDERSON
American college women are not
nearly so interested in athletics as
their English cousins, according to
Miss Edna Lind, instructor of botany
at the University of Sheffield, Eng-
land, who has been touring the Unit-
ed States since she landed in Boston
early in August and who recently
spent a week in the botany depart-
ment of the University here.
First of all, she pointed out, they
do not participate in sports as much,
although they. have excellent facili-
ties for this. Miss Lind explained her
point by saying that one afternoon
a week, Wednesday afternoon, was
left open for sport matches at Shef-
field, and so great was the interest
that few classes were held at that
time. "Hockey is especially popular,"
she claimed. "In fact, almost every
woman owns a hockey stick in much
the same manner that an American
woman has a tennis racquet."
Another interesting feature she
brought out was the way that a col- ;
lege education for women was general
here. The few women who take it up
in England, she stated, usually go on
with a career, seldom marrying, while
here college often seems to be looked
on as a marrying mart and women
mix a career with marriage.
Debating is one of the more popular
recreations in Sheffield, while it oc-
cupies a much less prominent po-
sition here. Certain evenings a week
are set aside for it in Sheffield and a.
Sororities Will Form
Bowling League Soon'
A sorority bowling league will be
organized within a week or two, ac-
cording to Miss Dorothy Beise, wom-
en's faculty bowling advisor.
At present the bowling alleys in the
basement of the W.A.A. building are
open from 4 to 6 p.m. and from 7 to
9 p.m. during the week. The price is
five cents per game for women stu-;
dents in the afternoon and ten cents
in the evening. For men the price
is 15 cents at all times. Non-students
may bowl for 15 cents per game, or
12 games for $1.50.
larger part of the sudents partici- I
pate than do here.
Classes and activities are held on
a different basis, she pointed out, at
least as far as time goes. Hours for
classes are from 8 a.m. to noon, 1 to
3 p.m. and 4 to 5 p.m., leaving an
hour for lunch and one for tea. From
5 to 7 p.m. the different societies meet
and discuss their problems, rather
than dong it throughout the day as
is customary here, and dinner is
served at 8 p.m. There is more par-
ticipation in outside activities here
than in Sheffield, she said.
Classes are attended more to attain
practical knowledge than to obtain
culture, and the standards on the
average are higher. High school di-
plomas are not given ,and college en-
trance examinations partially fill this
She was especially interested in the
attitude of the college women at a
dance. After attending the Martha
Cook dance, she spoke of the social
poise of the women here as bringing
their escorts to be introduced to the
SIosson Will Speak
To Guild on Peace
Prof. Preston W. Slosson of the
history department will address mem-
bers of the Roger Williams Guild of
the Baptist church Sunday night on
the subject "Peace or Truce." Pro-
fessor Slosson will be the main

THE SILENCE of Electrolux
is a definite advantage in
itself. But it is also far more
than that! It is constant proof
of the basically different method

It is this utter simplicity
which makes possible lasting
Electrolux efficiency. It permits
an unusually low operating cost.

it reduces repairs to a minimum.
