does not wish her name revealed.
By RHODA LESHINEt
Sparkling eyes, an enthusiastic1
voice and a personality abounding
with that certain "continental charm"
were the attributes that impressed
this interviewer at the first introduc-
tion to this 21 year old Belgian wo-
man who arrived in Ann Arbor direct-I
ly from Europe a week and a half
ago.
"My first impression of Americat
at New York was that I was in a
free country where I might speak
and do as I liked," she declared in
her newly acquired English language.
"The consistency of smiling faces
took me by surprise," she disclosed.-
First Desire Was To Drink Milk
"The first desire I had was to drink
some milk as I had not been able
to obtain the beverage for two months
at home," she confesses in answer to
my question as to what she wanted
to do first after stepping from the
Exeter liner which she had boarded
in Lisbon, Portugal.
The pretty blond-haired visitor told
of her work in Paris where she has
been employed with the Belgian Em-
bassy for the American Red Cross
since spring.
"The Red Cross is doing wonderful
work in France," she affirmed, "in
the distribution of food supplies to
alleviate the suffering of the refugees,
and the French are thankful and
appreciative of American aid."
'Paris Is Tres Triste'
"Paris is tres triste," she comment-
ed when I asked her about her im-
pressions of the capitulated city. "The1
German soldiers are calm, however,
as they have strict instructions from
Hitler to act correctly. They *are en-
deavoring to change the bad reputa-
tion they received in the last war
because of their actions," she ex-
plained.
Sports Enthusiasts
To Discuss Winter
Plans Tomorrow
Winter sports lovers will meet at
2 p.m. tomorrow at the Women's Ath-
letic Building for an organization
meeting to form plans for the com-
ing Outdoor sport season.
Skiing, tobogganing and ice skat-
ing are among the activities to be dis-
cussed for this year's schedule, as
definite plans for regular meetings
will be decided by those attending
this first consultation.
An ice skating party will be held
after the meeting Saturday; all those
who own skates are urged to bring
them to the WAB by Gertrude In-
wood, '43, president of the Outdoor
club. If weather permits, toboggan-
ing and skiing parties will go out the
same day.
