Finals Strain
To provide a relaxation period
from the stress and strain of final
examinations, the Union Executive
Council will present the semi-
annual "Blue Book Ball" from 9
p.m. to midnight Saturday, Jan.
25 in the Union Ballroom.
The dance, offered each semes-
ter, will feature Frank Tinker and
his 14-piece orchestra. Tinker is
heard at the weekly Union dances.
Favors in the form of miniature
blue books are to be presented to
each couple. During the intermis-
sion, the guest holding the highest
graded program will be awarded
a prize.
In addition, a quiz program will
be held during the intermission.
The winners will be presented with
four record albums.
Tickets for the informal affair
will be placed on sale Monday at
the main desk of the Union, and
may be purchased by those holding
Union Cards.
General chairman of the dance
is George Shaffer.

One of the many foreign coeds
who are concluding their first se-
mester here is Josefa Sastre, a
graduate from the University of
Tucuman in Tucuman, Argentina.
She is one of 150 students from
Argentina who was chosen for the
cpportunity of continuing her
education in the United States.
Miss Sastre was teaching child
psychology in the normal school
connected with the University of
Tucuman before she came here.
During the course of her work.
she received an invitation from the
Inter-American Educational Foun-
dation, connected with the United
States State Department, to spend
10 months in this country--one se-
mester at any university, and the
remaining months visiting other
schools throughout the country.
The Educational Foundation in
Washington found a place for her,
at Michigan.
The educational system in Ar-
gentina is quite different from
ours. Miss Sastre received her
degree of Prof. of Philosophy
and Education from the Uni-


Schreiber, band; Andy :Poledor,
programs; Bill Hannig, tickets;
and Lenore Olson, refreshments.
Special 1:30 a.m. permission will
be granted to all coeds attending
the affair.

from our sense of the word.
On Aug. 28 Miss Sastre left
Buenos Aires by plane, and-after
a brief stopover in Miami, Fla., and
Washington, D. C., arrived in Ann
Arbor on Sept. 18.

The student government at uni-
versities in Argentina is quite
strong. Each faculty or school
within the university is governed
by a council, made up of seven or
eight professors and three stu-
dents. The dean of the school is
also a member of the council.
Every student in each school is a
member of a student union, and
these unions make up the Univer-
sity Federation of Students. The
members of this federation in turn
are automatically made members
of a National Federation of Stu-
dents, which lately has been con-
ducting student strikes against
the unfair practices of the national
government against the country's
