Tea Thursday
The International Center will hold
its weekly "Open House" Tea from
4 to 5:30 p.m. Thursday for the bene-
fit of all University students who are
interested in meeting people of other
nations in an informal atmosphere.
The Center, located in the south1
wing of the Michigan Union, is a
delightful corner of the Michigan
campus that is unknown to many
students although all are welcome
to visit that cosmopolitan seat of{
activities-the International Center.-
The Center itself comprises a
pleasant group of rooms which serves
the need of the many persons- who
frequent them. The attractive lounge'
with its soft carpets, paneled walls
and luxurious chairs and couches is
the place to relax and to meet people
of this and other countries. Latin
America, Europe and the Orient, as
well as the United States, are well
represented. A well stocked reading
room is available to all foreign and
American students.
In addition to the Thursday after-
noon tea, at which guests gather in
groups of four and five for lively dis-
cussions, games of cards, or listen to
music, the Center presents a program
each Sunday evening. The Center is
open every Sunday at 2 p.m. and at
7:30 p.m. the program begins at
which a speaker is featured each
week. This is followed by a social
hour complete with refreshments.
At both the Thursday teas and the
Sunday programs guests are welcome
to come and go at will.
With all of these advantages avail-
able to Michigan men and women,
no student can afford to miss the
opportunities offered by the Inter-
national Center--the opportunities
of meeting and getting to know new
and interesting people.
