Woman .StudfentOfPhilippines
Objects Ontly To Michigan Snow'

In answer to an anxious request for
an interview a soft voice said, "Won't
you come to tea tomorrow?" and
that was the way in which we first
met Gloria Cortes, graduate student
from the University of the Philip-
pines. This dark haired girl with
the friendly smile looks about 16,
yet she has obtained her master's de-
gree in pharmacy, from the Univer-
sity, and is now working on her doc-
tor's degree.
In -accord with many other stu-
dents Miss Cortes thinks the snow is
"going too far." She was impressed,
first, by the darkness of the clothes
of both boys and girls on campus, for
at her home they wear only light
colored and light weight dresses, and
the boys all wear white suits. An-
other thing she noticed was the
friendliness between students and
professors, which she heartily com-
mends. At the University of the
Philippines the professors are very
"stiff" and formal, and there are no
faculty dinners, she said.
What? Wide Open Spaces?
From her reading, Miss Cortes was
prepared to find the United States
"teeming with people." It was a
great surprise to her when she first
saw the vast uninhabited areas of
the western states. She could not
imagine "why no one lived there." Of
Detroit she said one could go miles
and not know where you are. To her
it is very big and dirty.
In the Philippines the school of
pharmacy is composed almost entire-
ly of women and about one-third of
the students in the medical schoor
are women. There are, however,
none in the school of engineering.
The lawyers are the "noisiest" and
they are the campus leaders. There
are no social sororities, and the dor-
mitories are not owned by the univer-

sity, but there is a plan in progress
to make them so.
'Mamma Dont' Allow..'
Dances are not held on Friday
nights but on Saturday, and they are
very well attended. The Big Apple
became so popular that the president
had to ask the students not to do it
at the formal dances or at those at-
tended -by the faculty. Movies are
shown there at about the same time
they are in the states. Miss Cortes'
favorite actress is Norma Shearer,
but she refused to acknowledge hav-
ing a favorite among the men.
Girls do not smoke as it is con-
sidered "too ultra modern," nor do
they indulge in sports

Last winter Landy played with
Sonny Dunham in New York City.
Dunham was formerly first trumpet
with Glen Gray and his Casa Loma
Orchestra, leaving to form his own
organization. The band was broken
up when Dunham returned to the
Casa Loma band, where he is today
one of the highest paid trumpet play-
ers in the country.
Bill Boyd's orchestra will appear
at the Masonic Temple Auditorium
while Bob Steinle plays at the Union
for the President's Ball.
