Club To Sponsor
Children's Play

As a result of a recent survey
conducted by the University Wom-
en Veterans Association, during
which approximately 250 univer-
sities and colleges were polled, it
was revealed that there are many
campus organizations of ex-serv-
icewomen all over the country.
These women veterans have
banded together not rrey to en-
joy social fellowship but in many
instances for political and com-
munity interests as well. For ex-
ample. the 40 former service-
women at Kent State University,
Kent ,Ohio, recently sponsored a
drive to help solve the housing
problem among their fellow stu-

Prominent among these are the
groups at Texas Christian Uni-
versity, Fort Worth, Texas, Ufni-
versity of Colorado,Boulder,
Colo.; and Pennsylvania State
College, State College,, Pa.
At some, such as the Univer-
sity of New Mexico, Albuquerque,
N. Mex., and the University of
Minnesota, Minneapolis, Minn.,
the women veterans' association
is simply a part of the general
veterans' organization.
At the timedthe survey was be-
ing conducted, women veterans'
associations were being formed at
the Universities of Illinois, Ken-
tucky, Maine, Wisconsin, Denver,
Duke, Cornell, and Montana State.

2/-year-old Finnish boy is one
of 43 child war victims in Europe
that Pi Beta Phi national fra-
ternity is helping through Save
the Children Federation.
European War
Victims Aided
By Pi Beta Phi
At a cost of over four thousand
dollars Pi Beta Phi national fra-
ternity has undertaken, through
the Save the Children Federation,
to provide help for 43 child war
victims in France, Belgium and
Finland, the local chapter an-
nounced today.
The help will be in the form
of sponsorships for individual
children which will provide cloth-
ing, food and other necessities at
a cost of ninety-six dollars per
child. The balance of the fratern-
ity's War Project Fund was voted
to carry out the program. Mrs.
Warren T. Smith of Tacoma,
Washington, former Grand Vice-
President of Pi Beta Phi, arrang-
ed the program with the Save the
Children Federation.
Save the Children 'Federation
has been operating a sponsorship
program both for schools and in-
dividual children in several Euro-
pean countries for nearly two
years. Howard E. Kershner, vice-
chairman for Overseas work, re-
ported that undernourishment is
still rife in France and Belgium
and that conditions in Finland
were found to be worse than in
any other country in Northern or
Western Europe.
He found that there has been
a great increase of tuberculosis
and diseases resulting from under-
nourishment in these countries.
Under the system which has
been established by the fraternity,
children will be assigned to the
ten Alumnae Clubs and to the
six active chapters which contri-
bute most to the Physio-Therapy
Scholarships recently undertaken
by the fraternity. Each will
choose the country whose child-
ren it will help. In addition each
fraternity's provinces will be as-
signed two children to be selected
by the provinces' officers.
Foreign Students
Plan To Exchange
It is now possible for students
to correspond with students in
foreign universities according to
Barbara Raymer, chairman of the
Drives Committee of the League.
Due to the interest and requests
of various individuals and cam-
pus groups, names and addresses
of foreign students are now avail-
able to everyone. A system has
been initiated by which students
may choose the type and nation-
ality of foreign students with
whom theywish to correspond.
This preference may be stated on
blanks now available in the Merit-
Tutorial Office in the Undergrad-
uate Office of the League.
Miss Raymer stressed the im-
portance of continuing to write to
students once correspondence has
been started. If correspondence
is discontinued notice should be
given to the Merit-Tutorial Office
in order that the name may once
more be added to the list.
