Mamie's lose Bleed Startles
Tiger And Settlement Party

The bus rolled to a stop to the tune
of " . . . 5, 6, 7, 8-who do we appre-
ciate-the driveer, the driver, rah,
rah, rah!" Two seconds later the
mad scramble began-children tumb-
ing over each :other in their eager-
ness to be out, the volunteers strug-
gling to keep them in place till a
little order could be brought about.
Each child was adorned with a
circle of colored tissue paper, the color
corresponding to that of the volun-
teer who was in charge of his particu-
lar group. They were a typical cross-
section of settlement children-almost
without exception brown-eyed, dirty,
poorly dressed, and terribly affection-
ate. Colored and white, mulattoes and
morons (there were a few of both),
they were all thrilled at the prospect
of a day at the zoo.
Nose-Bleed Disrupts Party
There was little Mamie Misuraca
who .disrupted the party by coming
downdith a violent nose-bleed in
front of the tigers' cage, and was left
stranded with her sisters Angeline,
Beverly, and Jennie on a bench near
the drinking fountain. Sebena Rich-
ardson, the little female colored pill,
kept her volunteer in hysterics try-
ing to keep track of her. Luscious
Baldwin and her sister, Jimmy Lee,
were inseparable and they could al-
ways be seen wandering around 4n
close company with the Castandis,
Julia, Virginia, and their brother Kar-
They were funny little kids, with
a charm composed partly of their
flashing spirits, their smallness, and
their dependence. They lived in un-
painted, crowded houses, or two story
tenements filled with drunken, des-
pondent adults and viscious older
brothers and sisters. The settlement,
all new and shining, was at once
their happiness and their health.
Fully equipped with nurseries for the
tiny children and amusements for all
ages, it was designed and run for
their benefit, in the hope that they
could be kept off the streets and
guided into a little finer adulthood
than that which they came in contact
Settlement Stories
There were many stories connected
with the settlement and its children.
The case of Fergie, the social worker
who was in charge of finding clothes

for the most destitute, who gave awayC
skirt, sweater, and underclothes to a
young girl who badly needed them,
and then found that they belonged
to Marie, the maid, who changed into
her uniform daily.
There was a funny little Syrian lad,
awfully belligerent, whose waist-
length hair was neatly braided and
pinned up high. It seems that his
father had wanted a son very badly,
and had made a vow to God that if
his child was a son he would never
cut the boy's hair until he could send
him to Jerusalem to have it done
Ten years ago the man who teaches
boxing at the Franklin Settlement
had a very promising pupil, a colored
boy, who in 1938 holps the heavyweight
championship of the world. In short,
ladeez and gentlemun, in this corner
we have Joe Louis !
Queer to think that ten years ago
Joe Louis might have been visiting
the zoo!

Other Schools Adopt Course
Since the University ofdNorth
Carolina experiment, the idea has
spread to numerous colleges through-
out the country. Men's, women's and
co'-educational schools-they've al-:
most all followed suit. Vassar last
year presented one of the best courses
given, with particular emphasis laid
on the physiological and psychologi-
cal sides of the problem. A study made
in 1935 by Cecil E, Hayworth of
"Education for Marriage amongj
American Colleges" found that 225.
colleges were giving 234 courses
which in whole or in part dealt with
preparation for marriage and family
Plans for an extra-curriclar
course in marriage relations are slow-
ly developing on this campus, and it
is to be hoped that they will mature!

Party Line

Karpinsky were enjoying themselves as were Eleanor du Pont and Robert
Houze. Phyllis Carey and Ralph Erlewine had quite a chat during the inter-
mission, and Bunny Huistandahl seemed to have a
tot to say to Boz Williams.
Virginia Appleton gnd Lynn Reiss were tear-
ing around getting their wraps and Jeanne Crump *
was seen looking for Bill Langford. Midst merry
goodnights, Pattie Hadley and Bob Lovell made
their exit as the hands of the clock neared the
witching hour. We peeked in at the Union and saw
Dottie Baxter dancing by with Bob Mix. Bob /
Steinle was beating out a specially hot dish as
Before we left we saw Bill Briggs stagging around,

looking for his date and a good time was had by all. This is just the briefest
of summaries of who went where this past week but we'll have more dope
for you next Tuesday.
The class of '42 will have some scholars in their midst, if circumstantial
evidence will hold with the jury. Nancy Chapman, Mary Neafie, Mary Ann
Berg, Caroline Holt and Margo Thom have been patronizing the book stores,
and they look as though they meant business, too.

Women interested in trying out
for the Women's Business Staff of
the Michigan Daily are asked to re-
port at 4:30 p. m. Tuesday at the
Publications Building, Helen Jean
Dean, '39, women's business man-
ager, announced.


School days, school days,
Classes and dancing and social maze,
Coking and beering and library dates,
Even canoeing on various lakes;
Butdon't forget there are bluebooks too,
For they sort of sneak up on you.
Mix pleasure with work andyou'll have fun,
Such is life at Michigan.
