By GRACE MILLER
Appearing in this year's lecture
series will be a woman with the in-
telligence to write a nation-rocking
column three times a week, and the
femininity to dictate it while brush-
ing her hair-but don't mention
that angle to Dorothy Thompson.
It is said that she finds women
tedious, and they find her irritating,
with little or no knack for small talk.
Hence her preference to talk with
men who know their fields thorough-
ly. She dresses with arrestingly
good taste in clothes from Bergdorf-
Goodman and Saks-5th Avenue-
another reason for the green sparks
:that seem to appear in women's eyes
at her entrance. At 45 she is gray-
haired and handsome.
State Of World Deplored
Favorite pastime: exploding viol-
ently a hundred times a day over
the state of the world. She is a
chronic worrier over the affairs of
remote nations and peoples. Which
is supposed to be the highest form
of human sensibility and awareness.
Pet Peeves: Hitler! and the refugee
problem. Dorothy Thompson is an
almost perfectly extroverted person.
In her famous salons, experts on eco-
nomics, government, foreign affairs
and the hundred other questions on
which she writes argue with the tire-
less debater for hours at a time.
Of course she was a problem child
-running away from home at the
age of three, and then being found
asleep three blocks from home. As a
tree-climber and general tomboy she
,was excelled by none. The daughter
of, a Methodist minister, she man-
aged to keep the neighborhood per-
petually surprised.
Becomes Woman Suffragist
The woman suffrage movement hit
her broadside, and swept her along
in its current. Inevitable, that's what
it was. Although her voice was not
exactly golden, there was something
about her knack of compelling'
attention. Still this wasn't bring-
ing her very close to her desire to
become a newspaper correspondent.
This was remedied quickly and ef-
ficiently by simply packing up and
leaving for Europe, where her alert-
ness: and drive as a free-lance re-
po'rter finally landed her a perman-
ert job in Vienna. Somehow,
with .uncanny accuracy, she always
reached the scene of the crime just
as things happened.
After her first marriage resulted
in# a divorce in Europe, she met Sin-
clair Lewis, who managed to get in
-at least three proposals a day for
months, until Miss Thompson fin-
ally ;decided. Each found great in-

spiration in the other-in fact, too
much, evidently, for they are now
separated.
Miss Thompson's hatred for Hitler
approaches the fanatic. Yet she is
definitely pro-German. This ' feel-
ing dates from her days in Ger-
many, where she grew to love the
German people and their beautiful
homeland. She glories in her tri-
umphant exit from Germany when
she succeeded in so getting under
Hitler's skin that she was politely
but firmly conducted over the bor-
der.
To her, isolationists are narrow
and short-sighted. Her opinions are
a curious mixture of'both radical and
conservative thought.
WAA .Linked
With Women
By Managers
House managers form the initial
link between the individual student
and the Women's Athletic Associa-
tion. Through the managers, one in
each dormitory and League House.
any freshman may get started in the
particular sports attractive to her.
For each of the four League House
Zones, there is also a zone manager,
chosen from the house managers,
who has more direct contact with the
chairmen of individual sports who
are members of the WAA Board.
House and zone managers, and sports
chairmen are all accessible to each
women.
The WAA bulletin boards in the
League Undergraduate Office and in
the WAB, and the women's page
-f The Daily all carry notices of
coming events in the sports field.

Stelle, '43; Bowling, Margaret John-
son, '41Ed; Dancing, Neva Dilley, '41;
