By FRANCES MENDELSON
England realizes that it lost an en-
ire generation 'of education in the
last war, said Lady Mayer of London
n an interview last night, and the
government, she said, is making every
pessible effort to keep the schools
open and operating.
Sir Robert and Lady Mayer, who
were in Ann Arbor yesterday in be-
half of the British Save the Children
Federation, said it was impossible, of
course, to insist that a child attend
school when his school has been
bombed, but, they added, the govern-
ment recently passed a law compel-
ing children to /attend schools when-
ever it is at all possible.
Children Are Moved
The fact that the children have
been moved about so much, added Sir"
Robert, is another difficult factor in
their education. One child of their
acquaintance had not been inside a
schoolroom'for more than six months,l
simply because he was never in one{
place long enough.I
The colleges too, said the English
visitors, are maintaining "business as
usual." Both the faculties and the
student bodies are depleted, they said,
but with those that are left, the
studies are continuing.
In the troops themselves, a new
type of school has been started. The
men are given intensive, if periodic,
teaching. Among the troops, Sir
Robert said, there are enough edu-
cated men-professors, lawyers, and
other professional men-to teach the
men who have been forced to cut
short their. formal education.
Music Continues
The Royal College of Music, said
Lady Mayer, received more applica-
tions last September than they were
able to fill. Sir Robert and Lady
Mayer were among the foremost
leaders of musical education in Eng-

land. They organized a series of
symphony concerts for children, pa-
terned after the Walter Damrosch
concerts in this country.
Both Sir Robert and Lady Mayer
have extensive musical backgrounds
themselves. He was a conductor, and

scholarships. Funds for running ex-

as the recent appearance of Elsa
Maxwell. Although scholarships are
now the principal contribution of the
clubs to the University, they were the
ones to start and build the League,
and they also bought Alumnae House

It was back in 1917 that these ben-
evolent Michigan women started their
work. In Washington, D.C., in that
year a meeting of the National Asso-
ciation of Collegiate Women was be-
ing held. But no representatives of
mid-western schools, or even co-
etducational schools, had even gone
to these conventions.
Why not be the first, said one en-
ergetic Michigan woman, Mrs. W. D.
Henderson. So we were. Thirteen
reresentatives went to the national
meeting and from it came our Alum-
nae Association, and froi the activi-
ties of the Association,. such as the
League, the groups spread all over
the country.
