EQ To Present
Wives of married men in the
professional medical fraternity,
Phi Chi, numbering about 40, have
organized a club which meets
once every month to promote
friendship among the members.
Trying to find baby-sitters on
the nights of their meetings is
one of the biggest problems for
the wives of members of Phi Chi,
according to Mrs. John Clymer,
president of the wives' organiza-
Organized three years ago, the
club functions as a social organi-
Meetings are often centered
around speakers who are experi-
enced in the medical field or are
interested in the life of a doctor's
wife. Sometimes as is natural for
women, the wives turn to bridge.
,Besides functioning merely as a
social organization, the club helps
the fraternity by fixing refresh-
ments and floral arrangements foi
some of their parties.
Last year, the wives made and
filled stockings at Christmastime
for children at Beyer Memorial
Hospital in Ypsilanti. They alsc
filled Easter baskets for children
at the University Hospital.
The club includes, besides wives
of members of the fraternity,
wives of internes and resident doc-
It is believed that the Phi Chi
wives' club was the first organi-
zation of its kind at the Univer-
sity. Since 1949 when it first
met, other wives of professional
fraternity men have started simi-
