Sixteen Additional
Foreign Women
Enter University
With the fall semester in full
swing, Michigan welcomes approxi-
mately sixteen new foreign women
These new Michigan coeds come to
us from all parts of the globe-from
our own hemisphere-Iceland, Can-
ada, and South America-to the Far
East-India, China, and the Philip-
pines. Most of them formerly at-
tended universities in their respective
countries and are graduate students
here in varied subjects such as chem-
istry, public health, economics, edu-
cation, and English literature. They
will return to their native countries
to work after completing their edu-
cation here.
A few of them have rooms in the
dormitories here, some live in Willow
Run Village, and some in private
homes, but all add a note of color
and cosmopolitanism to the campus.
A few more students from India ar-
rived within the past couple of days,
but very shortly we will find them
rushing to classes as matter-of-fact-
ly as our own seniors.

Are Oriented
This Semester
About 650 freshmen women and 225
transfer coeds, including many vet-
erans, comprised the orientation
group this year, according to Joan
Schlee, chairman of freshman orien-
tation and Lois Iverson, chairman of
transfer groups.
Sixty-one advisors, all upperclass-
men, were needed to conduct the
freshmen women through last week's
activities. The program, designed to
acquaint the new students with the
intricacies of Michigan life, included
a rally at Hill Auditorium to meet the
various deans; an assembly in Lydia.
Mendelssohn where skits from Soph
Dean of Women, Alice C. Lloyd
will address the second and last
orientation meeting of freshmen
women to be held at 4:30 p.m. to-
day in Rackham Auditorium.
At the meeting, which is part of
the freshman orientation program,
student social customs and regu-
lations will be discussed. Dean
Lloyd and Mrs. Mary C. Bromage,
Assistant Dean of Women, will
also answer questions about the
social and academic life at the
University which have been asked
by the freshmen women.
Cabaret, JGPlay, plus addresses from
Dean Lloyd, Ellen Hill, Jean Louise
Hole and numerous other campus
leaders were presented.
On Saturday, to culminate the
week's intensive program, the Union
sponsored a mixer from 2-5 p.m. for
all freshmen men and women.
For the transfer women and their
19 advisors the program was very
similar, except that the organization
was entirely independent from the
freshmen. This is the first time an
attempt such as this has been carried
out, and, according to Miss Iverson,
was very successful.
The transfers were also introduced
at various meetings to those 'U' fac-
ulty members and students who would
prove most helpful. Together with
the transfer men, the women at-
tended a special meeting at which
Provost Adams spoke, the cheerlead-
ers performed, and student policies
were discussed by the leaders of the
Union, League and Judiciary Coun-
A voluntary acquaintance bureau
was temporarily established for
transfer women and veterans. Blanks
were distributed upon which indi-
vidual preferences were made, and
these were matched. The boys were
given the coed's name and telephone
number, and from then on it was out
of the hands of the advisors.

'Michigan Diag'
To Go on Sale
"Michigan Diag," the short-cut
beaten path to campus custom and
conduct etiquette book, put out by
the League Social Committee, will be
placed on sale the middle of next
week at the campus diagonal.
The pamphlet was distributed to
new coeds during orientation week,
and will now be available to all wom-
en. This is the first of its kind to be
edited by and for coeds, and thus far
it has been received with a great
deal of enthustasm.
The editor is Betty Needham '46,
assisted by Dorothy Wantz, '46 and
Estelle Klein.
Cleverly illustrated by Joan Read,
the booklet contains hints of do's and
dont's of campus social life. Among
them are class etiquette, garb, dating,
traditions, activities, and rallies.
Stressing social finesse, the editor
writes, "Custom is the result of pat-
terns of living and tradition passed
down from one class to another.
Herewith are collected some of the
rules and regulations, as well as the,
customs and traditions, that make
you, the University women, a part of
Michigan, and Michigan a part of
