Spanish Tea .
Foir Students
To e Tuesday
Forty South Americans To Be
Guests At International Affair;
Dean Alice Lloyd Is Sponsor
Under the supervision of Mrs. Ruth
L. Wendt, language adviser, and the
sponsorship of Dean Alice Lloyd, a
Spanish tea will be given from 4 p.m.
to 6 p.m. Tuesday in the Grand1
Rapids Room of the League.
The purpose of this tear and of all
other international teas given dur-
ing the year, is to get American stu-.
dents in contact with foreign stu-
dents and to help them learn about
foreign countries. To this end, about
40 South Americans will be invited
as guests, and the students will be
in charge of receiving them, thus
learning to meet people in a foreign
tongue, and doing their bit toward
promoting the s'good neighbor" pol-
Mrs. Wendt pointed out that fluent
students and beginners, are never
placed together and said that stu-
dents will "simply be allowed to speak
and will not be corrected." She
stressed ,that the teas are for "every-
body interested in a better command-
ment of a foreign language."
Teas Part Of Program
The teas are a part o Mrs. Wendt's
program to help students in foreign
languages become more proficient in
speaking their chosen tongue. The
rest pf the project consists of lan-
guige tables in all women's dormi-
tories on the campus except Martha
Mrs. Wendt began with six tables
in February, 1940, and has made
them so popular that they have since
increased to 30.
Students in each dormitory or flu-
ent'dutsiders, some of them refugees,
preside over the tables whose mem-
bersare chosen according to their
ability to speak and comprehend the
Prench, German, or Spanish-which-
ever is being spoken.
Has Summer Sehedue
Mrs. Wendt carries her program
through the summer, not only as
language adviser to American stu-
dents, but a interpreter to the many
foreign students who attend Michi-
gan then. Last summer she had the
interesting experience of taking 50
South American students, of whom
only ten percent could speak English,
under her wing.
She relates that the first thing they
learned was what 8 o'clock sharp
meant (nobody from South America
ever bothers with time), and they
were also much struck with the hon-
esty, discipline, kindness of America
and the fact that Ann Arbor ,was
"not at al Hollywood."
At present Mrs. Wendt gives indi-
vidualized assistance to 250 women
every week, as well as directing all
of the international teas.,

At this stage of the fashion game,
every woman who wears clothes is
beginning to realize that the long
torso is not a reference to a trunk,
It's a style-or line, if you please-
or even a trend, if you prefer that
phraseology. But however you refer
to it, there's no doubt that the long
torso is dominating the field of wo-
men's wear, today.
The gown pictured above is just
about as smooth an illustration of the
long torso in a dress as you can find
anywhere. The bodice is character-
istically sleek and tight fitting and its
lines sweeps down gracefully to where
they break low on the hip.
Just above the flare of the skirt,
the material is gathered evenly into
cartridge pleats whose precise new-
ness accentuate the lower waistline.
Most interesting in detail as ,well as
in line, the bodice is circled from neck
to hip by rows of elaborately designed
braid and is buttoned down the front
with self-covered buttons..
A tiny turn-over collar and sleeves
whose newness is guaranteed by their
suggestion of the dolman at the
shoulder and their loose fit through
the length, finish a dress that will
not only give youi torso a long look,
but will also give it a well-dressed

j Pigskin Is Good
Of course, those soft pigskn slip-
ons are always good. They are usually
quite short but there are, wristlets
to wearhunderneathethem which are
effective for keeping snow; and wind
on the outside.
Everyone likes to don sleek white
kid gloves for formal wear but they
are better looking than they are
practical. Soft angora mittens have
both qualities and come in all shades
to match or blend with your formal
or coat. Velvet mittens with knitted
wool linings are also stunning.
