ROOM SHOWS INTERESTS:
Indian Coed Plans Lifelong Education

by JANE HOWARD
Maya Deb's single room in
Stockwell Hall is distinctly re-
flective of Maya herself.
A visitor first notices the prints
of her native India covering the
walls, unobtrusive classical music
emitting from her phonograph,
and an ample bookcase testifying
to her interest in a lifelong edu-
cation, not ending with the last
scholastic degree or limited to any
specific field.

A MUG from Smith College,
1950, indicates Miss Deb's Ameri-
can education didn't beginhere.
After concentrating on English,
history, and philosophy at the
university in her home of Delhi,
she went to Smith College in 1948
for her master's degree in child-
hood education. Two years later
she came here to begin work on
her doctorate.
Ann Arbor appealed to Maya
for several reasons. She was first
intrigued with its name, and lat-
er found the town and the Uni-
versity are well reputed in India
for a sympathetic understand-
ing of a foreign student's prob-
lems. "But I don't feel foreign
any more," she commented.
Maybe this is because Maya's job
of resident assistant in Stockwell
has given her an insight into
American ways. Referring to her
duty of closing the dormitory ev-
ery other evening, she smiled,
"There are some nights when it's
extremely hard to send men from
the warm lounges out into the.
cold."
* * *
WHEN SHE ISN'T occupied with
research for her thesis in educa-
tion or switching off Stockwell's
lights, Miss Deb enjoys an active
social life. "But it's just like any-
body else's," she remarked. "I at-
tend the usual concerts and lec-
tures and movies with my friends."
Complimented on her polished
command of English, Maya said
that now she even thinks with
it. English, she explained, is the
common tongue for the various
Indian dialects, and is taught in
most schools there,
After she gets her doctor's de-
gree next spring, Maya plans to
return to the home she has not
seen in five years. There she'll uti-
lize the American phase of her ed-
ucation in a teaching or adminis-
trative position. "But," she prom-
ised, "when I get the wanderlust
again and money enough, I'll come
back."

Janio Talks
OnA ustri an
Red Menace
"The United States is quite dif-
ferent from the way Austrian
newspapers represent it," accord-
ing to Prof. Otto Janko of the
University of Vienna.
In an address yesterday Prof.
Janko explained that Austrians
living in the Russian zone of Aus-
tria are continually in a state of
insecurity.
Austrians do not leave the Rus-
sian zone because they cannotbe
assured of getting a job in an-
other zone, he explained.
Prof. Janko showed a movie of
the Austrian city of Salsburg and
one depicting the life of Mozart,
whom he considers Austria's
greatest composer.

Fowl Play
They dragged the five-year-
old professor's son into a small
dark shingle.
Bright lights leered down
from the floor.
"Okay, kid," said the cop's
grandmother, "where were you
last night at approximately
11:59 p.m.?"
Before the grey-headed lit-
tle monster could answer, some-
one screamed Elyograg and
everything went black.
Oh somewhere the sun is
shining and somewhere birds
are chirping. And the twirps
they chirp are:
There once was a fool named
April
Who thought he had never
ate well,
Until he dined out
Right up to the snout
At an annual Betsy Barbour
April Fool's dinner.
And now, brown cow, he ain't
no thinner.

ROTC Men Express dislike
For New Branch Assignments

A

S.
Army ROTC members expressed
general disapproval of branch
assignments they received yester-
day, commenting that they were
"unfair and discriminating."
Under the Branch General Sys-
tem initiated in 100 colleges this
year, the Army makes assignments
according to defense needs and
academic and leadership qualifi-
cations of the men.
Previously, freshmen ROTC {
members chose a branch ands
did specialized work in their re-
spective fields.
The new plan allows men to
express their three branch pre-
ferences, one of which must be
the armored division, artillery
corps or the infantry. Although
only two men 'chose the infantry,
27 were assigned to that branch.
One student assigned to the ord-
nance corps, his first choice, at-
tributed his "luck" to his hobby
of collecting guns. Another, in
the signal corps said his under-
class work in radio must have been
taken into consideration.
