TagDay Drive Provides
Funds for, Many Activities'
High over the Huron River valley under the eaves of University
Hospital is the Galen Shop for hospitalized children.
The'rooms which dominate the larger part of the ninth floor of
the Hospital are the home of a work shop and recreation center.
*a
THE SHOP FACILITIES are open to the younger members of the
hospital residents who need a place to let off some of their natural,
youthful steam in a constructive manner.
About 2 p.m. during the week days the children start gather-
ing in the Shop. The ones not able to walk are brought in wheel
chairs or in beds. The Shop which is staffed by trainied personnel
provides all the equipment needed for having fun.
Jig saws, a lathe, a sander, a drill, a circular saw, many hand tools,
work tables, paint facilities, drying racks and pattern books provide
all, the necessary ingredients for
the young carpenter. after the children leave the hos-
pital.

Six of the 16 Law School Case
Clubs have survived the first quali-
fying round of competition and
will take part in the semi-finals
next spring.
Each club will be represented by
its two highest junior individual
scorers.
IN ADDITION, two independent
teams remain in the running, com-
posed of students with the highest

individual scores chosen at large
from the rest of the competing
juniors.
The Case Clubs, a law school
extra-curricular activity, present
.cases in mock trials which are
judged by two seniors and a fac-
ulty member.
Leading the parade of qualifiers,
were Montgomery Club, represent-
ed by Scott Elder and John Perry,
and Cooley Club represented by

Mrs. Bromage Says Liberal
Education. Needed by Women

A JIG SAW IS PART--OF THE WELL EQUIPPED GALEN SHOP

UNDER careful guidance the
children are allowed to select their
own project. The projeots must
not be too complicated, too heavy
or too large for manipulation of
bed ridden or partially disabled pa-
tients. They must be appealing,
small projects that can be finished
in about a week.
For those not particularly in-
terested in constructive wood or
leather work, the Galen . Fun
Fund provides comic books,
manipulative toys, dolls, trains
wand books.
Recently the addition of the rec-
ord player has proven a popular
diversion. The childven enjoy lis-
tening to recorded stories and mu-
sic with their friends.
FOR THE MORE than 1,000
children who use the Galen Shop
each year, the informal atmo-
sphere fills the void left by the
missing playmates and parents.
The emotional adjustment that the
children must. make is difficult.
The Galen Shop provides the big
boost needed during their hospitili-
zation.
The Shop offers a place for
freedom from restraint of the
hospital routine where children
express themselves f r e e l y
through the use of tools and ma-
terials. Many of the hobbies de-
veloped in the Shop are followed

In addition to keeping them
busy, teaching them to use tools
and giving them an opportunity to
make useful and attractive things,
the Shop exerts a definite sooiahz-
ing influence over the boys and
girls. The Shop is a natural set-
ting for them to work together.
The high spot in the Galen Shop
calendar is the Annual Christn' as
Party sponsored for all children in
the Hospital. With a Santa Claus,
candy and presents the kids get
a taste of real Christmas away
from home.
* * *
THE REAL spirit and driving
force behind these activities for
the children of University Hospi-
tal is the organization known as
the Galens Medical Society. It was
formed in 1914 to act as a laision
group between the medical faculty
and students.
The honorary society which
concentrates on service took the
name of Galeh, a famous physi-
cian who lived in Greece 1800
years ago. One of its founders
was Dr. Albert E. Furstenberg,
present dean of -the Medical
School.
During the early years of their
creation the Galens concentrated
on medical student-faculty rela-
tions, sponsoring guest lectures
and providing scholarship.
* * *
THEN IN 1927 it was proposed
that the organization provide a
Christmas party for the children
in University Hospital. The idea
of a tag day was offered as a
money raising method. The plan
was carried through and the first
party was held the same year.
Shortly after the Christmas
party it was suggested to the
Galens by the social service ai-
rector of , the Hospital that a
work shop was needed for child-
ren the year around.
Using the remaining funds from
the Tag Day Drive the Galens es-
tablished a pre-vocational shop
for the hospitalized youngsters.
Since then Galen Shop has served
more than 22,000 children.

A broad general education is the
only real preparation for women
in modern society, Mrs. Mary C.-
Bromage, former Dean of Women7
declared yester'day.
Speaking on "From College to
Community" at the leadership
banquet of the Association of
Women Students at Albion Col-
lege, Mrs. Bromage explained the
value of a varied education in pre-
paration for post-college living.
County Board
OK's. Hike in
Rent Ceilings
The Washtenaw County Rent
Control Advisory Board voted
Wednesday night to lift rent ceil-
ings 25 per cent above the June
30, 1947 level.
The action was taken at the
urging of the City Council's spe-
cial committee on rent control ex-
tension. Committee c h a i r m a n
Prof. Russel A., Smith of the Law
School, had notified the board that
he felt the Council would approve
rent control extension if the ceil-
ings were increased.
At the same time, the board
turned down an accompanying re-
quest from the committee that.all
rooming houses be decontrolled.
Temporary chairman of the
Board, James H. Robertson, asso-
ciate dean of the literary college
instigated the rejection of the sec-
ond proposal. Since Prof. Smith
had earlier reported that the Uni-
versity saw no great rooming
housing problems, Robertson sug-
gested that complete decontrol
would not benefit the rooming
house operators.
Prof. Smith will take the rec-

"THE POSITION of women in
20th century America has under-
gone a revolution still not recog-
nized," Mrs. Bromage said. "Wo-
men today are going to work out-
side their homes as well as inside."
Women do not work only to
fulfill glamour-blinded ambi-
tions or for self-aggrandizement,
Mrs. Bromage said. Both their
earning power and their special
services and skills are needed,
she noted.
In the face of womanhood's
changed role, the battle of the
sexes is a figment of the imagi-
nation, and should be disregarded,
she maintained. "The talents of
men and women are complemen-
tary to each other," she said.
Mrs. Bromage decried those
who claim women have lost their
"real mission" in life.
"Far from losing our mission,
American women have gained so
vast an opportunity for service
that it requires all that college
education can give them to fulfill
the challenge of their role," she
concluded.

Following were Fletcher Club,

Woodward Club, featuring Richard
Patrick and Arthur Biggins, and

Dean and Richard Clifford
William Gump and Dean Olds
made up one of the independent
teams, while .the other was com-
posed of Hugh Cook and Laurence

The winners of the semi-final
round will argue in the finals be-
fore a court consisting of some of
the most distinguished jurists in

Awards for the final winners will

It will be the fifth study of this
