'Aunt Ruth'W
She's not glamorous, blonde and 21,,
but nevertheless Aunt Ruth Buchan-
an's 1,200 "nephews" find her a better,
morale-builder than Lana Turner or
Dorothy Lamour.
Twenty years older than the aver-
age student, Aunt Ruth began her
career at Michigan when she entered
the University in 1926. She took
courses in art, journalism and play
production, the subjects she dreamed
of taking when she looked through
the University catalos of her under-
graduate sons.
Not austere but highly practical,
Aunt Ritutth's love of ichigan and
interest in its students was born in
her undergraduate days.
She was in Prof. Valentine Windt's
first production and was costumiere
for Prof. Windt, the Hillel Players
and several other campus theatrical
Writing has brought Aunt Ruth her
widest recognition. A one-act play,
"The Doll," was printed in the campus
literary magazine, The Inlander, and
her three-act play, "Bondage," was
produced at the Lydia Mendelsohn
Theatre by the Wesleyan Players.
She was on the editorial staff of
"The Wesleyan" and contributed
poetry to various publications. Dur-
ing one summer term she was a re-
porter for The Daily.
Humanitarian and farsighted, in
1932 Aunt Ruth helped to found the
Michigan House, the first co-opera-
tive house on campus. With six boys
to help her, Aunt Ruth canned 500
gallons of fruit and vegetables, which
enabled her to serve perfectly bal-
anced meals to a group of 25 boys for
a dollar apiece per week.
Showing her militan spirit and
ability to get things done, in World
War I Aunt Ruth received an award
for outstanding Red Cross work. She
organized the Estabrook Women's Re-
lief Corps, and was one of the found-
ers of the Starr Commonwealth for
Boys at Albion.
Aunt Ruth believes that her big
gest job is to send letters and
Dailies to servicemen, a project
which began three years ago.
It all came about when a letter from
Major Garnet J. Burlingame, com-
mandant of the Ann Arbor National
Guard Unit, Company K, arrived, say-
ing that the morale of the boys was
teing lowered since they were losing
contact wit4 home,
Aunt Ruth decided to turn her
hand at remedying the situation. She
wrote to all the boys in Company K,
asking each one if he wanted mail
and news from home.
The response was tremendous
She received replies not only from
Company K, but also from hun-
dreds of other servicemen. Aunt
Ruth answered every request for
Letters-hundreds of them- start-
ed pouring in and the stream hasn't
waned. And in reply Aunt Ruith
wrote birthday cards, Christmas
cards, get well cards, sympathy cards,
and letter after letter. She spent all
her spare time looking after soldiers
and sailors who needed "some helping
over the rough spots."
Aunt Ruth set aside work on her
miniature theatre and put away her
half revised novel to devote all her
time to :her most important project,
writing to her "nephews." And she

received the only reward she wanted,
letters from the boys telling her how
much they appreciated the work She
was doing, and telling her of their
lives and duties.
She received other awards also.
Aunt Ruth is an hol orary member
of the Navy Mother's Clib and has
been given an Emblem of honor
Pin, an honor ordinaily reserved
for mothers of four orineru killed in
In 1942 an article in The Daily by
Hale Champion was copied by World
Wide Service and brought in many
new names and birthday dates. She
:eceived one letter from a British
soldier in a London hospital who had
ead about her in the London Daily

"The rea ou I do this work is that
I'm ,so grateful to the boys for what
they are doing," ,Aunt Ruth said.
Vast 60 new, and slightly cripled,
she works seven days a week in the
University Museum.
She is "awfuly proud" of her "neph-
ews and loks forward to the day when
she wil be able to meet them all per-
After the war a "Family Reunion"

interested in the organization. At
this time the bok of letters and photo-
graphs, and "tall tales" of the boys
wil be put into a book which will be
called "The Family Album," Aunt

Dr. Gabriel Atristain of Mexico,
who is now taking a post-graduate
course in public health here, will
speak to the members of the Spanish
Club at 8 p.m. Tuesday on the "De-
velopment of Mexican Literature."
In his lecture, Dr. Atristain expects
to treat principally the period of
Mexican literature "from its origin
in the year of the conquest, 1 21, up
to the time of the war for indepen-
dence in 1810, mentioning important
persons and factors flhat have, con-
tributed greatly to this epoch."
His interest in literature began
while he was in preparatory school
and in his last year of high school,
Dr. Atristain won a contest with his
short novel, "La Perra." le received

his doctor's degree in medicine at the
University of Mexico and in 1939 was
