Hospital Aids
Meet Today

meeting of all eligible students desir-
ing to become Hospital Volunteerl
Aids at 4 p.m. today in Room 4408 at

unteers, will speak at the meeting
outlining the various duties and re-
sponsibilities which are demanded by
this service. Each student will also
sign up at this time for the type of
work she would like to do.
Minimum Hour Requirements
The volunteers are required to put
in a minimum of four hours of work
each week, which may be split up into
two-hour shifts. The specific times
when the student may work are left
entirely up to the individual. The
Hospital is open every morning, aft-
ernoon, and evening, including Sat-
urday and Sunday.
Students may be placed either in
the men's, women's, or children's
wards, and they work directly with
the patients. They may read, feed,
arrange flowers, or run errands for
the patients, and try to cheer up all
those under their care. In general,
they assist where the doctors and
nurses must leave off.
Special Laboratory Work
Special openings are available for
those students who are interested in
chemistry or physics. They may sign
up for work in the laboratories where
they will help by taking blood counts,
labeling, and staining slides. Those
interested will have an interview with
the lab director to make more thor-
ough arrangements.

known as Soph Project, but has re-
cently been made a division of the
League Hospital Service Committee.
Olive Chernow (2-3225) is chairman
of the committee, and should be con-
tacted by any interested student who
cannot attend the meeting today.

East Lansing, Michigan


The complex life on the Michigan
campus is usually strange to the
American coed coming here for the
first time, but imagine the bewilder-
ment of Miss Obba Armannsson who
came here this fall all the way from
Reykjavik, Iceland! In spite of the
complete change, however, Obba has
orientated herself as well, if not bet-
ter, than any other new Michigan
coed, and finds her experiences
Pere full of interest and excitement.
Obba spent one year at the Univer-
sity of Iceland before coming here.
Before that she went to the Menn-
taskoli, corresponding to our high
school, for six years. The educational
system in Iceland is quite different
from ours in America. Children start
school at five or six years of age. Then
when they are 13 or 14, they start
either -in the Menntaskoli or the
Gagnfradaskoli which is a two or
three year school. Graduates from
the Gagnfradaskoli, however, cannot
enter the University, but may con-
tinue at the Menntaskoli. "Students"
are only those who are attending the
Menntaskoli, and when they gradu-
ate they receive a coveted white cap.
One may very well wonder why
Obba came all the way from her
home to go to Michigan. Obba's
father, a professor of Greek at
the University of Iceland, met a
professor from Michigan who was
visiting in Reykjavik, and they be-
came friends. Tales of America
had aroused Obba's curiosity, and
when she announced to her father
that she wanted to continue tier
studies here, he wrote to his friend
to see if she could be admitted.
Through his kindness and interest
in her, Obba was accepted and se-
cured a room in a League House.
Obba traveled to New York by boat,
an 11 day voyage. On September 2,
a day she will undoubtedly always re-
member, Obba caught her first
glimpse of America. "I couldn't say
anything, I was so astounded," she
admitted. "It was such a change, be-
Chairmen Chosen
For Panhel Boll
At the Panehllenic Board meeting
yesterday, announcement was made
of the Central Committee for Panhel
Ball, traditional affair given by and
for sorority women .on campus.
General chairman of the dance will
be Polly Thompson, Alpha Phi. As-
sisting her and also in charge of fi-
nance is Kay McCord, Pi Beta. Jane
Quail, Delta Delta Delta, is in charge
of patrons.
The program committee is headed
by Jean Lee Van Leeuven, Gamma
Phi Beta, and the decorations com-
mittee by Mary Alice Cheney, Alpha
Gamma Delta. Shirley August, Alpha
Epsilon Phi, is chairman of the pub-
licity committee and Mary Buckmas-
ter, Kappa Kappa Gamma, is chair-
man of the refreshment committee.
Jerry Gaffney, Delta Gamma, is in
charge of the tickets.
Panhel Ball will be given Friday,
November 29, the day after Thanks-

For the finishing touch to that


cause at home we do not have such
tall buildings." Obba spent two or
three days in New York, and like most
first-time visitors, went to the top
of the Empire State Building.
On September 17 Obba arrived in
Ann Arbor. To the question, "What
attracted you most when you first
arrived?", she quickly replied, "All
the trees. They are beautiful." In
Iceland there are no trees in the
towns except in private gardens.
She is very proud of the natural
phenomenon near her home. The
mountains, rivers, and lakes are
breathtaking, and the geysers and
glaciers are famous for their
beauty. Another thing which im-
pressed her right away was that
all kinds of people are here-col-
ored, Indians, and all races."
Icelanders dress the same as we do
here. Coeds at the University wear
dresses, stockings at all times, and us-
ually need a coat. Obba is majoring
in Latin and is also taking Greek,
English, and drawing. At the end of
this year, she will probably return
home to teach Latin at the Univer-
sity of Iceland.
