Bever House Presents Scene
Of Congeniality,_Cooperation,

keeip IL;'Oof hlCoton

University Residence Hall
Successfully Combines
Work, Fun, Friendship
Adelia Cheever, a University resi-
dence hall managed on a parially co-
operative plan, houses 23 women stu-
dents "in a pleasant atmosphere, in
which we do just enough work to
stimulate the cooperative feeling,"
explained Mary Lowrey, '42, president
of the house.
Cheever House, which operates un-
der the supervision of the Board of
Governors of Residence Halls and a
Board of Patronesses, has a house
director, Mrs. Holly Dobbins, with
M4artha Bailey, Grad, as staff assist-
ant in Pamela Noble Cottage, the
annex. The work necessary to main-
tain both units is done by the stu-
dents, with the assistance of a cook.
Valuable training and experience in
home management is acquired at
Cheever House. Work is apportioned
in varying amounts among the resi-
dents, and each one is paid by the
University for her services. The
money earned may be used in any
way desired, but is usually applied
to current living expenses.
Miss Lowery described the feeling1

among the residents to be one of
real friendliness and interest in self
development. Officers are elected
yearly, and those serving with MissI
Lowery are Christine Chambers, '42,
vice-president and social chairman,
and June Densmore, '42, secretary-
These officers were installed Wed-
nesday at an honor banquet, and
Sonia Yanosky, '41, was the outgoing
president, with Miss Lowrey and Ell-
en Was, '42, as her officers.
This home in which the women live
was originally the home of Judge
Noah Cheever and his wife, Adelia,j
former Ann Arbor residents, and re-
tains much of the charm and hos-
pitality characteristic to houses of
that period. Pamela Noble Cottage
was named for Mrs. Cheever's sister.
Many of the original possessions of
the Cheever family are still in use
in the present residence hall.

To the Editor:
The letter printed on your page of
yesterday's Daily and signed "THE
Women," aroused me to write you a
letter on behalf of us 'boes. The auth-
ors of the letter state that the Mich-
igan men should "dress UP to the ho-1
boes, and not BELOW them." 1
In the first place, we 'boes .object
to being classed with Michigan stu-
dents. Oh, college fellers are all
right, but after all they really don't
come up to the standards set up by
the knights of the road. In the sec-
ond place, most of us 'boes have a
healthy set of whiskers;-and at
Michigan we didn't see five men cap-
able of sprouting chin-underbrush.
Being a hobo, naturally I am a stu-
dent 9f psychology. Enough, at least,
to lnow that any group of women
that signs its collective name as
"THE Women, with capital THE is a
not-too-mildly-egotistical collection
of hens. In other words, they think
they're THE women; the only wo-
men on the earth. We 'boes think
that they aren't THE women, not by
a long shot; and we've been around.
I hate to give away secrets, but we
'boes can see the true reason why the
Ypsi girls were alienated recently by
Michigan students. To use the prev-
alent terminology, it was a fifth col-
umn of Michigan women that insti-
gated the whole plan-the Ypsi girls
were offering too much competition.
That competition had to be stamped
out, so these wicked designing females
set out to do it. Now, no self-respect-
ing Ypsi girl will speak to a Michi-
gan man.
Hoboically yours for light and

Miss Christians
Approves Sport
Program Here
"You girls have a beautiful life
here," Mady Christians, currently ap-
pearing in "A Winter's Tale", com-
mented after viewing the women's
sports set-up at Michigan. The op-
portunities for athletic recreation of-
fered here appealed to Miss Chris-
tians as the perfecting touch to col-
lege life.
Miss Christians, who requested
sports privileges for the duration of
her visit in Ann Arbor, had only one
adverse criticism of the athletic
equipment here-and that one was
based upon her love for swimming.
"I intended to swim every morning,
as I do in New York," she said, but
the twice weekly privileges offered
to women by the Union pool upset all
those plans.
An enthusiastic .skiier, Miss Chris-
tians has been a firm believer in that
sport since she first took to ski poles
at the age of five years. Not
only as a participator but as
a spectator the long snow stretches
lure her. "In skating, for instance,"
she remarked, "you are confined to
one small lake or pond."
As to long ski jumping, she is not
quite as exhuberant, but "I can jump
when necessary" Miss Christians fin-
ally admitted. She expressed her ad-
miration for the well-kept tennis
courts at Palmer Field, for tennis
ranks among her top favorites in the
athletic world. Tennis tournament
competition, which used to be a part
of her sports program, is eliminated
now by the rush of the rehearsal-
performance life of an actress. Sail-
ing in Long Island Sound is another
of this stage-veteran's pleasures.
"You can't get up at 6 a.m. for a
brisk swim when you've gotten to
