Women Here
Place Homes
In spite of all the dicussions we
hear about career women, University
of Michigan coeds prefer homemak-
ing to the world of business, a recent
campus survey shows.
Working through the Union and
the League, the Bureau of Appoint-
ments of the University sought to
discover what occupations most in-
terested young men and women in
the University. The results of the
survey they conducted will determine
the topics to be discussed at the
Guidance and Occupational Infor-
mation Conference to be held here in
How To Get A Job
First in the masculine mind was
how to interview and how to apply
for a job, while the fair sex indicated
this as their second interest.
Research work received the next
most check marks from the men,
women designating third greatest in-
terest in the field of personnel and
employment management.
Men More Helpful
Subjects of the questionnaires were
all members of the Union and the
League. Men students,, however,
proved more helpful in answering the
quiz, results showed.
Men students tended more toward
the technical, and scientific in their
choice of professions than did the
women. Manufacturing and factory
management, salesmanship, and poli-
tics and government service followed
closely as far as men's interest was

Professor Goudrmit
The city of Holland in this state is
more Dutch than is Holland itself,
according to Prof. Samuel A. Goud-
smit of the physics department in an
informal lecture Tuesday at a meet-
ing of the Deutscher Verein.
The people who came here from
the Netherlands 80 years ago have re-
tained their original customs to such
an extent that the homeland would
be totally unfamiliar to them should
they return, said Professor Goudsmit.
One big change, induced by the
willingness of the Dutch to adopt
foreign ideas, is the odd conglomera-
tion of architecture arising from the
construction of ultra-modern build-
ings next to medieval fire-traps.
However, the characteristic canals
have not changed much and they
still add much to the atmosphere
in more ways than one.
In reply to the question of wooden
shoes, Professor Goudsmit laughed
and said that only when working in
the gatden or when venturing out
on a wet night do the Netherlanders
wear them anymore.

plex by the dominance of the state of
Sao Paulo, the great coffee and man-
ufacturing center, which contributes
from 50 to 70 per cent of the entire
revenues of the federal government,
he explained, and which because of
its support of the federal treasury
was able to dominate the government
up to 1930.
The revolt in 1930 of Vargas, backed1
by the Brazilian army, was merely
the successful attempt of the other
states to break the dominance of the
hated Paullstas, the residents of Sao
Paulo, Professor James said. This
was not the first attempt to break
the dominance of Sao Paulo, he con-
tinued, for throughout the 1920's va-
rious combinations of states by such
schemes as padding the census rolls
so as to increase the representation
of their states in the Brazilian Con-
gress, fought against Paulista rule.
Vargas,; of course, immediately after
his "election" showed the power of
his regime by punitive measuresl
against Sao Paulo, such as the re-
placement of its governor with a man
from outside the state and the aboli-

Dr. Rabinovitz will assume his new

tion of the special taxes favoring theI
industries of Sao Paulo city.
TI tIns light, therefore, it is easy to
comprehend the revolutions of 1932, 1
1935, and 1938 as the unsuccessful
attempts of the Paulistas to return'
themselves to power, Professor James
declared. The revolution of May,
11938 was primarily the effort of
groups not in power to get back into
the saddle. There is no certain evi-
dence that the revolution was aided
by any European power, he added.
Brazil, however, does face a foreign
element problem, he explained, the
chief immigrants being German, Ita-
lian, Japanese and Polish. Although
many of these immigrants came to
Brazil as early as 1850, their tendency
to remain together in separate groups
has been troublesome to the Brazili-
an government. Brazil has attempted
to meet this problem by revision of
its immigration laws and quotas so
that there is a definite limitation to
the number of immigrants who are
permitted to enter the country. For
example, under the new provisions,
Germany's quota is about 3,000 of
whom 80 per cent must be farmers.
Brazil also faces the danger of in-
ternal disorganization and disinte-
gration, the Professor claimed. This
problem is due to the isolation of each
