Funds To Eliminate Barbour

Council presents $1,400 worth of
War Bonds to the WAA for the

them over to the swimming pool,

$1,400, a sizeable gift for the need-

THE PRESENT Barbour Pool,
which is the only swimming fac-
ility available exclusively for the
5,000 women on campus is an an-
tiquated 19%' by 27%' depression
in the dressing room of Barbour
Gym which is four feet deep at its
deepest end and at present can
accommodate only the elementary
swimming classes. The mainte-
nance of the antique is especially
difficult as it requires draining
and cleaning totaling at least 12
hours per week.
"Not only are the women on
campus being deprived of rec-
reational and healthful oppor-

Woman Politico
From Korea
Stops Here
The first woman politico in
Korean history passed through
Ann Arbor yesterdayleaving the
impression of a regenerated wom-
anhood in her homeland.
Mrs. Helen Kim, Korean dele-
gate to the United Nations gen-
eral assembly at Paris and Direc-
tor of Ewha women's college in
Seoul, Korea said that the coun-
try was undergoing a peacetime
"We are making a century's ad-
justment in a year," she said. Be-
fore the liberation in 1945. Korean
women had little or no rights of
their own and took no part in
public life, Mrs. Kim said.-
The curriculum in Ewha college,
the oldest women's university in
Korea before the war, taught lib-
eral arts, music and home econo-
mics. Since the end of the war,
the increasing status of women in
Korea has brought about the ad-
dition of medicine, pharmacology,
finance, physical education and
teaching, to the curriculum.
The selection of Mrs. Kim as
delegate to the UN was the first
time that a woman was given a
part in Korean politics.
Women in Korea now have equal
legal rights with men, and they
are gradually acquiring those
rights in fact. "It takes time," she

Did you know that if you are
decorating a new home or apart-

Young women with eyes turned
toward a June wedding may find a
bit of council in these findings.
There is a reason of course, for
this shift in public taste. The.
trend from formality to casualness
is extremely strong.
TODAY'S LIVING, and there-
fore, today's home, reflects an em-
phasis on informality and relaxa-
tion. It is well for young brides-
to be to note that although the
basis of an informal room lies in
its important pieces, the end ef-
fect is made up of a combination
of many small things.
Placement of furniture, for
instance, and the color scheme
are as important as the kind of
sofa chosen. When decorating
a room that will truly reflect
your family living, pay particu-
lar attention to your floor cov-
erings. A bare floor looks cold;

WOMEN WITH an eye to the
future would do well to visit the
rug department of their favorite
store during March 1 to 10 when
the carpet fashion opening takes
place. Such a visit should give
her any number of ideas for in-
formal living.
The textured look, probably the
most important style note of the
year, is a particularly good choice.
Patterns will be shown, ranging
from abstract improvisations to
florals that are as bright and gay
as spring.M
