Islands on Christmas Eve as well as in
America, says Esperanza Castro, petite
graduate student from the Islands.
In most ways, the two countries
have no major differences, excluding
the lack of the biting Michigan cold,
she has discovered. Two places so
widely separated by ocean waters are
bound to have a few differences, but
she says these are minor ones for
the most part. We in America have
customs similar to those of the Philip-
pines, almost identical fashion styles,
and in general, Manila could pass as
any American city. ; They even see
plenty of snow there, she laughs, but
it's never first-hand-only in the'
Incidentally, motion pictures are
one way in which the Islanders have
it all over less fortunate people in
the United States, Miss Castro was
surprised to notice. "I saw 'Lost Hori-
zon' in the Philippines last April, be-
fore I came here," she said ("Lost
Horizon" played at a local theatre in
October of this year.)
With all these correlations between
the two ways of living and considering
the additional fact that she has been
studying English since she was 'way
back in the grades," Miss Castro feels
almost at home in this land where
she plans to spend the next three or
four years. There are days, however,
when she gets "pretty homesick" she
Now Studying Pharmacy
' She graduated from the University
of the Philippines, and as a Barbour
Scholar is studying synthetic phar-
macy at Michigan. She plans to go
back and practice in the Islands when
she finishes her course here. Not
many people are engaged in synthetic
pharmacy there, and it affords a very
good chance for advancement. In
fact, the Philippines sound like a
veritable business utopia for women.
They have invaded most of the pro-
fessions excepting engineering, she

silve; evening sandals, similar to they
ones worn in America, peep out from
beneath the dresses. The Philippine
garment, while very beautiful, is too
inconvenient and fragile for daytime
wear, she pointed out.
About the coming freedom of the
Islands from the United States, Miss
Castro had this to say: "We like to
be independent very much, but of
course we enjoyed the possession by
America. America has done a great
deal for the Philippines, especially in
the educational line."

There will be no open-house at

vacation, Hope Hartwig, '38, presi-
dent of the League, announced
yesterday. She also said that the
