India Neglects Primary Schools
Expands Universities, Student

Installation banquet became past
history at 8:30 p.m. Monday and next
year's crop of BWOC's received their
well-earned recognition in Tuesday's
Daily, but for approximately a quar-
ter of the 933 women who attended
the dinner there was another angle
which remained unexpressed because
it is the peculiar heritage of the
senior class.
It was for seniors alone to watch
the play's progress and experience a
vicarious thrill for the juniors, and
yet to know that Installation Banquet
was only a scene in a larger play-
the development of the League. For
them it was the fourth such ban-
quet, and we'll wager that most of
them recalled their first as they
watched the juniors pass in review.
Extra-curricular activies come in
for a lot of debunking at one time or
another, but the debunkers would do
well to stop a minute and consider
with the seniors what it is that
draws almost a thousand of the 2,500
undergraduate women on the Michi-
gan campus to a dinner which costs
them 65 cents. Call it ambition, the
"natural frivolity of the female sex"
or what you will-the figures remain
Natural corollary of this consider-
ation is that the League with its 1,000
Installation Banquet attendance did-
n't spring up overnight. Behind the
figures for Monday's banquet one
finds a League tradition.


White collar on a silk jersey dress
is a combination which is ever new.
There is nothing more flattering
to the face than a touch of white,
especially with silk jersey which
is the season's new favorite in
materials. Its popularity lies in
its non-iwrinkling quality. Eve-
ning dresses and blouses are also
being shown in silk jersey or silk
jersey combined with another ma-
terial, such as wool.

Philippine Woman Notes
Freedom And Vivacity
In American Colleges
Freedom from the chaperon sys-
tem, snowfall, football, five and ten
cent stores, automats, cafeterias, and
the skyline of metropolitan cities have
made an idelibleimpression on Este-
fania Aldaba, a charming student
from the Philippine Islands who is
earning her doctor's degree in psy-
chology here at the University.
Although American campus life is
similar to the college life of students
who attend the educational institu-
tions of the Philippine Islands, Miss
Akdaba stated that the dating sys-
tem is conspicuously different. The
men and women attend the formal
parties and other social functions in
their respective groups, she said. The
women are, as usual, accompanied by
chaperons who diligently fulfill their
duties as scrutinizing proctors.
Another aspect of American life
which contrasts sharply with that in
the Philippine Islands, Miss Aldaba
explained; is the fast moving tempo
so characteristic of Americans as
compared with the slow and leisurely
pace of the Filipino. "Life is very
short at best, and the Filipino would
question what enfoyment is to be
gained from the feverish activity of
the Westerners when he can get as
much out of it with less effort," she
Siesta Hour Is Tradition
Siesta hour after lunch is tradition-
al in the boarding schools and con-
vents, she stated, although this sys-
tem, coveted by many American col-
legians, has been abolished in the is-
land colleges. The school year, Miss
Aldaba pointed out; begins in June,
continues through the rainy season,
and concludes with graduation week
in March-and it is spring and sum-
mer the year round with temperatures
ranging from "cold spells" of 50 de-
grees above to heat waves of 110 de-
The girls are less independent and
more reticent in nature than the
typical American coed, Miss Aldaba
said, accounting for this difference in
part by the strict regulations of the
convents aid boarding schools which
prohibit dating during the week and
allow only for Sunday visiting hours
supervised by chaperons. "However,
they are gradually stepping out from
their shells and fast absorbing the
more practical ways of their Ameri-
can sisters," she said.
Emphasis On Basketball
More emphasis is directed toward
intercollegiate varsity competition in
the Filipino colleges with particular
stress on basketball now. Miss Aldaba
misses the popular American institu-
tion, football, in the islands. "I
cannot imagine a university without
its usual share of football heroes
and fans," she said.
American customhs have been adopt-
ed in the general culture of the is-
lands, in the social and moral stand-
ards, and in the prevailing philosophy
of life; she noted. Much progress
has been made, she said, since the
American regime began forty years
ago. Supreme Court Justice Frank
Murphy, she continued, is very pop-
ular with the Filininn: onr hnoe nn-

though fear of a Japanese invasion
causes many to favor maintaining
the -ties with United States, as the
island is not adequately protected to
ward off such an invasion.
Minor Key Dominates Iusic
"Of music and dances, the beauti-
ful and natural tropic setting provides
an endless inspiration to the- musi-
cally minded Filipinos." Native com-
positions are usually written in the
minor vein although the 1940 Philip-
pines takeina wide variety-from
the exotic tangos and rhumbas which
reflect the Spanishinfluence to the
more modern and typical American
swing and jitterbug stuff.
After receiving her B.S. degree
from the Philippine Women's Uni-
vesity and her master's degree in psy-
chology at the University of the Phil-
ippines, Miss Aldaba came to Ann
Arbor where she will complete her
graduate work on a Barbour scholar-
ship. Miss Aldaba lives in the Mar-
tha Cook Building.
