Equality Quest
Denounced by
'Italian Actress
"American women are on the
wrong track in the search for
equality with men," says Marina
Berti, glamorous Italian actress.
Miss Berti made this comment
recently when she was offered a
seven-year contract in Hollywood,
which she turned down.
* *~ *
"MY HUSBAND is more impor-
tant than a contract," she ex-
plained. She said her husband,
actor-director Claudio Gora has
his work in Rome and she must
stay there with him.
In contrast to some Holly-
wood stars, she ranks her movie
career as second to her husband
and two children.
"In Italy the family is most im-
portant and the man is the head
of the family. From what I have
seen here, American women don't
believe that. They seem to want
to be equal. I think they will
only make themselves unhappy
because of that," she stated.

MISS BERTI showed astonish-
ment when learning that many
American husbands have to help
wash the dishes, cook, and do the
"The Italian husband never
enters the kitchen," she said.
Miss Berti continued that at
night the wife has her husband's
pipe and slippers ready and
dinner prepared.
Miss Berti said that women
never go out without their hus-
bands and when they go out to-
gether they either take the chil-
dren with them or leave them
with relatives. Professional sit-
ters are unknown.
"However, all this does not
mean that families do not have
arguments," said Miss Berti.
"We have no divorce in Italy,
and so couples seldom break up.
But why divorce anyway? Men
are all alike, so why throw one
away and get another just like
him? It is better to keep the
one you have and profit from the
time and trouble you have spent
on him," she stated.
Miss Berti said Italian women
are happier than American wo-
men, because they do not try for
equality with men.

LER, who studied medicine at and
graduated from the University, is
credited with the founding of the
League Library. In her spare
time she designed a pictorial map
of Ann Arbor to help raise funds
for the League Building.
In 1929, in Dr. Koessler's
memory, her husband and bro-
thers financed and furnished
the Library room. One thou-
sand volumes were donated in
her honor, with social groups
contributing the remainder of
the Library's stock.
