Vichy's New And Old Foreign Ministers West Quad Features French Tables
By DAVID LACHENBRUCH
'On parle francais" every day of
the week at the new French tables in
the West Quadrangle dining halls.
There are 10 tables per week, where
students interested in conversational
French may learn it by actually
speaking. All this is under the direc-
tion of Bertram Smith, Grad., a
graduate of the University of Lou-
vain in Belgium.
There is one table for beginners, at
which very elementary French is
spoken, and there is adtable for those
who ar'e extremely advanced in the
language, mainly those who have
been abroad and lived for some time
in French-speaking countries. Then
there are graduated levels of ad-
vencement at various other tables.
But there is one iron-clad rule
which all tables have in common,
and that is that the speaking of
English is strictly tbaoo!
To facilitate the introduction of
members of the tables and to "break
the ice," the table members congre-
gate 20 minutes befo-e dinner time

AME Society Will Hear
Prof. Harry E. Miller
At Meeting In League
Capt. A. L. Davidson of the naval

of the student chapter of the Ameri-
can Institute of Electrical Engineers

Prior to the talk, which will be on

bility of a series of field trips to big
manufacturing concerns in Detroit
Meanwhile, the Society of Ameri-
can Military Engineers, closing their
activity for the calendar year, will
hear a talk by Prof. Harry E. Miller
of the Department of Public Health
Engineering and Sanitation at a
meeting at 8 p.m. today in the League.
The subject of Professor Miller's
talk will be "What Would It Mean
to America if Great Britain Were
Defeated." As a colonel in the Army
Reserve Corps, Professor Miller is well
qualified to speak on this subject.
in Smith's room, where they partake I "tres interressants, tres interres-
of cocktails <consisting of tomato
iuice). Over a glass of tomato juice
and a pretzel, introductions are made
_n French and the students acquaint
themselves with each other and get
"the feel" of speaking French.
At dinner the conversations go
from politics to religion, to sex to
philosophy-all in French-with an
cccasional "passez-moi du pain," or
"les pommes de terre, s'il vous plait,"
interspersed in the conversation.
The French tables in the West
Quad have had very successful ex-
change dinners with the French
tables set up in the girls' dormitories.
The mademoiselles, they explain, are
And when a member of one of the
tables turns to a innocentguest
who happened to be invited to watch
the goings-on, and asks, "que pensez-
vous de la?" he'd better think of
something clever in a hurry.
Keniston To Speak Today
Prof. Hayward Keniston, chairman
of the Department of Romance
Languages, will discuss the charac-
teristics of a good doctoral thesis

news of the dorms
By GLORIA NISHON and DAVE LACHENBRUCH
Stockwell Hall will hold a formals
Christmas dinner tonight which will,
from now on, be an annual affair,
adding still another tradition to the
new dorm's ever-growing list of them.
Edythe Anderson, '44, will enter-
tain the residents and their only
guest, Dean Alice Lloyd, with some
selections played on her vibraharp,
an unusual instrument combining
the physical characteristics of a
xylophone with the sweet musical
qualities of a harp.
A pageant, to be presented in the
drawing room after the dorm has
been closed for the evening, will in-
clude some typical Christmas tableaux
enacted under the direction of Edith
. . . and the nurses will have
their annual tree-trimming party
Thursday night . . . a private
gathering with caroling and the us-
ual Christmas festivities and
decorations, which, by the way, will
be handled under the capable direc-
tion 'of Pat Davis, '42SN, and Betty
Conner, '43SN. Jeanne Thatcher,
'42SN, is general chairman.
Stockwell's camera contest may
not produce results as hifalutin' as
the fine collection displayed at the
West Quad's faculty tea Sunday, but
they'll certainly be interesting, es-
pecially since the snaps will include
not only the ordinary outside views
of the dorm, but also some typical
