New Co-op Unit
One Hour A Day Of Work
Is Expected To Furnish
Half Room And Board
Twenty undergraduate women will
compose the University's first wom-
en's cooperative house, Muriel Bre-
mer, '38Ed said yesterday.
The cooperative which is to be es-
tablished next fall will be located at
517 R Ann St., Miss Bremer con-
By doing all the work in the house
themselves, such as planning and
cooking meals, cleaning and buying,
the girls expect to furnish both room
and board for $5.50 a week. It is esti-
mated that each member of the house
will work approximately one hour a
Planning Began In Spring
Since spring vacation a few girls
have been working on this coopera-
tive project. They have succeeded
in 'enlisting the support of the off e
of the Dean of Women, renting the
house of Mrs. Louis Salow, and in-
teresting a considerable number of
both faculty members and students.
About forty girls expressed their de-
sire to live in the house.
Mrs. H. L. Pickerill, active in Ann
Arbor cooperative movements, has
been advising the group. Other aid
has been obtained from the existing
campus cooperatives. There has been
an exchange of ideas with the men's
cooperative at 535 Thompson St. and
there is a possibility that the houses
will work in conjunction next year.
Differs From Cheever house
While the new women's cooperative
resembles in some ways the Adelia
Cheever and Alumni Houses, there are
m~any differences. Both Adelia Chee-'
ver and Alumni House are owned by
the University and in both, the girls
must pay for their room. A girl can-
not earn her full board at either. At
Adelia Cheever it is possible to earn
-half board by working twelve hours a
week and in Alumni House two thirds
of the board is earned by fourteen
hours work. Although all do the ac-
tual work, such as cleaning, cooking
and dishwashing is done by the
women, the meals are planned by the
In the women's cooperative it is
possible to work toward both room
and board. By working seven hours
a week the women will cut both room
and board expenses to 'approximately
half of the regular dormitory fees.

"The Bartered Bride" is a comic
)pera about Bohemian life written by
Friedrich Smetana, with lyrics by Sa-
bina. Smetana, a pupil of Liszt, com-
posed eight operas during his life, but
it was this one that made" him fa-
mous and brought his appointment as
director of the Prague opera. First
performed in Prague in 1866, it was
not brought to America until 1909. It
received its first recognition when
performed in 1892 at the Vienna
According to the plot, the betrothal
of Hans and Marie is threatened by
Marie's father, because he has deter-
mined she shall marry Wenzel, the
son of an old friend of his, Micha.
Nenzel is extremely unattractive, but
Kruschina, the father, and Kezal plan
to push the marriage.
Kezal offers Hans 300 crowns if he
will give up Marie in favor of Wenzel.
At first he is refused; then Hans con-
sents, providing Marie will marry only
the son of Micha. Kezal is delighted
and signs a paper to this effect.
Marie cannot believe that her lover
has sold her for 300 crowns, but is
persuaded when she sees the agree-
ment. However, Micha returns and
Maims Hans as his long-lost eldest
son, and Hans thus wins 300 crowns
besides the bride.
