A campus over-looking the Medi-
terranean, a faculty composed of edu-
cators from all over Europe, a stu-
dent body of 32 nationalities with an
American contingent numbering less
than 20-these are a few of the pros-
pects facing Constance Bryant, '40,
who is one of two exchange stu-
dents to study next year at the
American University of Beirut at
Beirut, Syria.
Miss Bryant, who has never trav-
eled more than 200 miles alone, looks
forward to the 5,000 mile trip with
great anticipation, and although the
common reaction of her friends is
"I'll bet you get put in a harem,"
she is not worried at the prospect of
being the only American woman in

The American University of Beirut
is the outstanding educationial insti-
tute of the Near East, according to
the January issue of Reader's Digest.
Mr. Bayard Dodge, its president, who

Center here last February, taught as
youngsters the men who are -now the

Co-education Not Accepted
Although that section of the world ere cones
is rapidly becoming westernized, co-
education is not yet an old and fa-
miliarly accepted idea, and it wasn't
so long ago that the Moslem womenY 4

One of the most popular costumes for beach wear this season will
be a cotton swim-suit. With a V-neckline this smart suit is of a quilted
and brightly flowered material. Younger sister can imitate older sister
since the outfit comes in varied sizes. Into the material is woven a
rubber thread which makes it fit perfectly. This, like many of the newest
models is skirtless. It has two bright buttons on each shoulder.
Seniors Find Campus Activities
Integral Part Of College Career'

Double commencemer- will take
place June 18 for most of the bally-
hooed, parlez-vooed "activities" sen-
iors-graduation from their classes,
and graduation from the campus, the
League, the W.A.A., the Publicationsj
Building, the limelight.
Unsecreted is the fact that the
women who have pursued four well-
laden years of forwarding their class
endeavors: cooperating, leading, aid-
ing, DOING, regard this part of their
college career as an integral part of
their education.
Activities Are Important
"The more you have to do, the
more you can do," asserts Marcia
Connell, who believes that the only
thing that extra interests retarded
was the wasting of time! Miss Connell
has found that potential employers
are interested in her spare time
activities at least as much as in her
Phi Beta 'Kappa grades.
The position which afforded her
the most fun was Chairman of the
League Orientation Committee, whose
duties extend over a summer of con-
tacting freshmen, and a fall of ac-
quainting them with Michigan and
with each other. The University's
top-ranking beauty believes, how-
ever, that nothing can be gained from
campus experience 'by an unenthus-
iastic participator.
Training Is Valuable
Sybil Swarthout gleaned more pure.
enjoyment from membership in Wy-
vern, junior honorary society, than
from her highest position, president
of the League Judiciary Council. In-
tending to work into the personnel
line, Miss, Swarthout is sure that her
four years of training in responsi-
bility, initiative, working with and

for other people will aid her greatly
in her plans for the future.
Miss Swarthout is a firm believer in
the time budget, in fact, she holds
that it is essential to anybody who
desires the most out of college life:
One can regulate that "most," too,
dividends will be in proportion to
the initial outlay!
JGP Was Fun
Although Jean Holland didn't
deny that being president of the
League is a terrific job, for unadul-
terated pleasure she will reminisce
about JGP, of which she was assist-
ant chairman. "Quote-shy," Miss Hol-
land did advance the opinion that
learning to get along with other
people, and to make them feel at
ease will help her in an immediate
future of teaching.
Margaret Van Ess Wins
Women's Archery Meet
Margaret Van Ess, '41, won the all-
campus women's archery meet held
Thursday afternoon under the aus-
pices of the Women's Athletic Associ-
Helen Pielemeier, '41, came in sec-
ond at the meet. Miss Van Ess won
with a score of 345 points, while Miss
Pielemeier's total was 285.
The meet was of the "Columbia
Round" type. Twenty four arrows
were shot off at 30, 40, and 50 feet.
Closing hours for women over
the holiday will be 1:30 a.m. Mon-
day and 11 p.m. Tuesday, Betty
Slee, '40, chairman of judiciary
council, has announced.
