project presented each fall. It is
the night on which all independent
women gather for an evening of
fun and to honor outstanding
coeds and dorms. A skit is pre-
pared by each independent resi-
dence and a gold cup is awarded
to the group whose playlet is se-

BEFORE COMING to Michigan
last fall, Miss Fontes had taught
English at an American school in
Rio de Janiero. This school is one
of very few in Brazil which fol-

system, she stated.
According to Miss Fontes, the
preparatory schools in Brazil

Upon matriculation each stu-
dent must have decided upon his
course of study and follow the pro-
gram that is mapped out for him.
Students live at home, because
there are no dormitories. A col-
lege education is much cheaper
there, she said, since tuition totals
only about $20 per year, although
books are just as expensive as they
are at Michigan.
