Gabriel Fuentes, '39E, of Spanish
descent but a native of Puerto Rico,
likes the University of Michigan for
its democracy and its women students.
"On our island," he said, "there are
distinct social classes. If you come
from an old family which is well-
known, you are accepted without
question in society. But if your family
isn't known, you are not one of this
socially acceptable group. Up here,
there is no distinct line. You often
can't tell the difference."
Puerto Ricans More Considerate
On the other hand, Fuentes says
that in his country Negroes and
mulattoes are treated with much more
consideration and respect than they
are given in United States, even in
the north.
As to Michigan women, the-man-
with-the-accent simply stated that he
likes them and that he begs to differ
with the gentleman who thinks that
four out of five women are beautiful
and the fifth comes to Michigan. He
preferred not to be quoted on specific
examples to support these statements.
Fuentes transferred to Michigan from
the Unive'rsity of Puerto Rico, where
he studied engineering. When asked'
to compare the two schools, he re-
plied that work at the University of
Puerto Rico is conducted in much
the same manner as it is here, English
textbooks being used, although recita-
tion is always given in Spanish.
Univesrity Less Interested
But outside the classroom, the uni-
versity has much less interest in the
student's life than at this university.
There are no regulations for men'

about automobiles, rooming houses,
or the use of liquor.
An interesting difference in socialI
custom can be noted in the conven-1
tional courtship of Puerto Ricans.
Young women of good familiesalmost
never "date" unescorted. At dances,
movies, or even on walks, the couple
are escorted by her parents or friends.
But even escorts are human, and will
occasionally loosen the apron-strings
a bit. "It's more or less like a game,
you know?" Fuentes smiled.
But before a man may begin to
~"date" a young woman, he must ob-
tan consent from her father. When
he wishes to marry her, again he
asks for her father's permission.
If Fuentes is a true product of his
environment, we may assume that
Puerto Rico, "where it is always
spring," is a place where one is con-
tent with the present and optimistic
about the future.
This laughing, black-eyed Spaniard
from the West Indies was in difficulty
about his program at the time of his
interview. "I have taken many of
the wrong courses," he confessed.
"Now my schedule is so confused. But
.when things get too mixed up, I just
close my eyes and wait till they get
better." And with another quick grin
he dismissed his troubles.
Honor Deans With Dinner
Dean Alice Lloyd, Dean Jeannette
Perry, and Dean Byrl Bacher were
dinner guests of Kappa Alpha Theta
Thursday. Following dinner coffee
was served in the living room before
the group broke up to attend the lec-'
'ture at Hill Auditorium.

"'Where shall I go to buy
Dependable furs?"
Noteworthy, isn't it, that
the answer of so many un-
prejudiced people is . . . .
"ZWERDLING!" They may
know little technically
about furs. But an impres-
sive number of men who
have been around and who
do know values, have had
reason to recognize the de-
pendibility of Zwerdling
Furs. Someone among your
own friends has had the
same experience. Ask them
the question. "It's our best
