University Student Describes
Thrilling Experiences In Peru
By FRANCES MENDELSON
Hanging to a shrub, 30 feet below
the top of a cliff and 2,000 feet above
the next landing, for 20 minutes un-
til help could be summoned, was only
one of the exciting experiences which
Ruth Clark, '43, had to tell about the
three months which she spent in
Peru this summer.
One of 16 American college stu-
dents who participated in this un-
usual program of education called
"International Living," Miss Clark,
a transfer from Saran Lawrence Col-
lege, said that, although the Peruvi-
ans lap up the type of Americanism
that they see in the movies, they re-
sent the inclination of any of their
own people to adapt the customs of
the United States. Altnough the
American students were accompanied
by several Peruvian boys on their
travels to the "backwoods," no Peru-
vian girls joined them because, Miss
Clark said, it would have outraged
the social conventions.
Girls Don't Attend College
It is almost equally unheard of, she
said, for the girls to go to college.
Most of them attendta religious school
or the equivalent to our finishing
schools, Miss Clark added. "When
a Peruvian girl goes on a date, even
if it is only to the movies, she must
be accompanied by a chaperon, gen-
erally a brother or sister or friend."
These customs, she said, are only true
in the cities as it is there that most
of the white people live.
Because the Peruvian white man is
expected to support his wife and sup-
ply her with servants, Miss Clark'
explained, there are many bachelors,
and those men that do marry usually
wait until they are about 30. The
girls generally marry when they are
Set Out For Andes
During the second month of their
visit, Miss Clark and her party left
the city of Lima and set out for the
Andes Mountains in a truck driven by
a "none too capable" native. It was
on this trip that she had the rather
"fantastic" experience of falling off
the cliff. "It seemed so ridiculous
that I could hardly believe it," Miss
Clark said when asked how it felt to
have nothing between her and a 2,000
foot drop but a small shrub.
Once, when coming upon an In-
dian tribe, the party was mistaken
for an Argentinian circus. When the
students had set up their camp, they
found themselves completely sur-
rounded by the Indians who sat in a
circle and just watched them for a
day and night. "Although they ap-
parently meant us no harm," Miss
Clark said, "it became very nerve-
racking to have every movewe Made
watched by strange eyes."
Lived In Inca Hlouse
On old Inca house, resurrected by
archeologists, was the home of the
party for three or four days. Among
the fabulous ruins which they visited,
Miss Clark cited the example of a
gold-plated cathedral which had an
altar of solid silver. "Any American,"
she said, "would have died a thous-
and deaths to see the large, jewelled
candelabra in a safe of rotted wood."
The "International Living" pro-
gram, a non-profit organization, has
been in existence for 10 years. By
sending groups of college students to
various countries, they hope to pro-
mote friendly international relations
by acquainting the students with cul-
tures other than their own. In for-
mer years, most of these groups trav-
elled through European countries, but
the war has temporarily curtailed
those trips. and at the same time
brought about an awakening inter-
est, on the part of the "International

swiftly, economically for practical
wearable gifts that are sure to please.
So you have a roommate, you love
her dearly, and want to give her a
Christmas present that will prove
it-but every time you start making
plans your thin pocketbook positive-
ly leers at you. Well then, just cast
your eye over the host of presents
available for a dollar and under, and
fool that pocketbook.
First of all, this present has to have
a special something that will raise it
above ordinary gifts. Monogrammed
gifts, gifts engraved with a first
name, crested gifts for sorority wo-
men, gifts bearing the Michigan seal,
all achieve the desired personal touch.
So do nailpolish, perfume, or col-
ogne that you know to be your room-
Cigarette Cases Are Inexpensive
Cigarette cases and compacts come
within the price range and you can
have initials or a first name burned
on them for no "extra charge. The
same articles can be purchased with
a Michigan seal on the cover. Crest-
ed compacts and cigarette cases run
just slightly over a dollar. Sorority
recognition pins fall within the
boundaries and make excellent gifts.
Monogrammed pins come in all
shapes, materials and sizes; so do

handsomest Michigan stationery yet
seen. It is available in several pale,
aristocratic shades, and the sheets
are large-sized with rough edges and
a small, clear Michigan seal in the
upper left hand corner.
Lipstick Offers Suggestion
By this time you know what shade
of lipstick and nailpolish brings a
happy gleam into your roommate's
eyes, what perfume, cologne, and
powder she most desires, and the
kind of silk stockings she delights in
wearing. This gives you a wide field
from which to pick a welcome gift.
Dickies, colorful woolen mittens,
ankle socks to match a favorite skirt,
or a gay silk scarf or two will appeal
to her tremendously. With black
embroidery silk and a little ambition,
you can please her all the more by
adding monograms to these articles.
Every girl likes a good book and
a year-round complaint of college
girls is that they don't have the time
to do all the reading they want to.
The bookstores in town are offering
best-sellers at amazing prices and
if you put one on your roommate's
shelf her laments will give way to a
host of thank-yous.

have a flap to stand on. You'll have
a lot of fun Christmas shopping this
