Deans' Conference
The problems confronting deans
and advisers of high school and col-
lege students were discussed by .Re-
gina Westcott Wieman at a general
session of the Schoolmaster's Club
held at 9 a.m. yesterday in the Mich-
igan League.

stances arising among college stu-
dents was directly due to their being
suddenly massed together without
being educated for group associations.

of the Conference of Deans and Ad-
visers of Women was begun by a
talk on "Popularity from the Point
of View of Health" by Dr. Warren
E. Forsythe, director of the Health
Service. Dr. Forsythe stressed the
scientific approach' to the under-
standing of human behavior and per-
sonality, and pointed out the neces-
sity for the girl of high school age to
make a transfer from the natural to
the artificial in her manner of life.
