Student Interests Considered First
By President, Mrs. Ruthven Says

Church Guilds
Discuss Peace
Armistice Day Themes
Dominate Programs

Faculty And Student Teas
Create Friendly Feelings
Between Various Groups
Student demands come first in the
lives of a university president and
his wife, Mrs. Alexander G. Ruthven
admitted as she cleaned her glasses
with her handkerchief and laid them
on the tea table.
No snap either, she said, is the duty
of a president to create friendly
feelings between the various groups
connected with the University-be-
tween the students and the faculty,
the students and the townspeople, al-
umni and the University, and state
officials and newspapers with the
Three Teas A Month
For this purpose, the house of the
president is open for three teas each
month, two for students and one for
the faculty. Progress in the cultiva-
tion of student and townspeople re-
lations were indicated by the dinner
for the president, Mrs. Ruthven said,
as many of the local organizations re-
quested tables for the celebration.
"It is impossible to do all the en-
tertaining actually required," she went
on, "but we. do as much as we can get
around to in a year, including many
local women's clubs and out-of-town
"O there's the bell again," she re-
marked as she got up to admit a man
and his young son. Loud "hello's"
were soon heard from the study as
President Ruthven greeted his guests,
Oregon Man
"That man just arrived by plane
from Oregon," Mrs. Ruthven ex-
plained when she returned to her
place on the divan opposite the in-
terviewer. "He's an alumnus of the
University and is going to take his
son to the football game. He was
just here a couple of weeks: ago for
the presidential dinner."
Returning to the subject of the in-
terview, Mrs. Ruthven explained that
she believed it her first and most im-
portant duty to take the cares and
burdens of entertaining and of the
family off the president's shoulders so
he can devote his time to other work
in the University.
To further encourage their alumni
elationships, the Ruthvens are leav-
ing tomorrow for a trip to Oklahoma

and Texas, where the president will
address groups in various cities in -
eluding Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Dallas,
Fort Woh, San Antonio, Austin, 'and
Loud Bark Heard
A loud bark was heard outside the
door and Mrs. Ruthven got up to ad-
mit Eleanor, the president's well-
known bull-dog., With a dash, he
came in to a warmer clime as the in-
terviewee explained that this was the
first time the household had ever been
left with only one dog.
Each year President Ruthven se-
lects a certain section of the country
for a trip, Michigan's first lady con-
cluded. Two years ago he chose
Seattle for his trip and became the
first University president to speak on
the West coast,
Newman Club Hears

Prof. Jerome G. Erwin, head of the
