Annual Teas
To Be Given
By Hatchers
Students May Attend
First of Year's Series
At President's Home
President and Mrs. Hatcher will
once again open their home to stu-
dents from 4 to 6 p.m. tomorrow
for the first bi-monthly tea of the
semester.
Kappa Alpha Theta, Prescott
House, Theta Chi and Chicago
House will be special guests for
the tea. All University students,
however, are cordially invited to
attend.
FRESHMEN ARE given a spe-
cial invitation to come and meet
Dr. and Mrs. Hatcher and see their
home, which has recently been re-
decorated.
4The annual tea for freshmen
during Orientation Week was
unable to be held because of the
redecorating.
This year the League Social
Committee has appointed perpa-
nent representatives from every
residence on campus to act as
hosts and hostesses at the teas.
IT IS FELT by members of the
committee that this will make for
a much1 smoother running system.
The president's teas have be-
come almost a tradition on the
University campus. In 1935; the
League Social Committee organ-
ized and took charge of the teas.;
Since then, the bi-monthly teas
have become quite popular with
students who wish to meet and
talk with the president and his
wife.
w e.* * *
SPECIAL RESIDENCES and
groups on campus are usually in-
vited to the teas, but they are
open to all students and faculty
members of the University.
The entire Hatcher residence
will be open tomorrow afternoon.
Students are free to visit any
part of the house they wish, with
or without the aid of hostesses
and hosts.
An informal atmosphere will
prevail so that every student may
feel completely at home.
Marilyn Hey is chairman of the
League Social Committee this
year, and Dick Pinkerton is in
charge of the Union tea committee,
which provides the male hosts.
Junior assistants in charge of
the teas include: Tula Diamond,
Peg Kennedy, Barbara Matison,
and Ann Petrie.
Soph Cab
There will be a short meeting
for all members of the Soph
Cab floorshow and all commit-
tee members at 7:30 p.m. to-
night in the League.

Hatcher teas. These students will be on hand from 4 to 6 p.m.
tomorrow at the Hatcher home to welcome guests. These teas will be
presented twice a month.
Favorite Candidates Backed
By Politics-conscious Coeds,,

Enjoys Living
In America
By ROZ SHLIMOVITZ
Recordholder of college degrees
-this distinction could possibly
go to Miss Jer Dosabhai DaBoo of
Bombay, India who is new resi-
dent assistant and night chaperone
of Helen Newberry Residence.
While the alerage student is
satisfied with a bachelor's degree,
Miss DaBoo already has 2 bache-
lor degrees, 2 master degrees, a
Ph.D., and has completed her the-
sis for a Ll.D. at the University
of Bombay.
* * *
AT THE University she is study-
ing for the degree of Doctor of
Education, with vocational guid-
ance and juvenile delinquency as
her special fields of interest.
With such a rich background
of learniig, it's no surprise to
the majority of people that Miss
DaBoo now holds the Barbour
Levi Scholarship given by the
University.
She also holds the Fulbright
Scholarship from the United
States Government and the Tata
Award, sponsored by Asia's biggest
iron and steel firm.
* * *
MANY SURPRISES greeted the
student on her arrival to Ann Ar-
bor.
Here Miss DaBoo experienced
her first taste of chilly weather,
since Bombay has only two sea-
sons, one hot, when the temper-
ature fluctuates between 95 and
110 degrees and the other'rainy.
Now she anxiously waits to see
snow for the first time in her life.
IT IS THESE white flakes and
winter's low temperatures that
prompted her to buy her first coat
and sweater a few weeks ago.
Another surprise came the
first week of school when the
night chaperone was "just amaz-

lieve in good thoughts, good words
and good deeds.
To show how highly the peo-
ple think of the Parsi's, the In-
dians say "Parsi, thy name is
charity."
These people, who all wear the
traditional shirt and sacred girdle,
worship in fire temples. As fire is
a sacred element, the orthodox
Parsi's don't smoke.
* * *
ONE PROBLEM that feces the
new resident assistant is the food
situation. She is a vegetarian and
has never tasted meat or chicken.
Miss DoBoo exclaimed, "I do
not like the idea that animals
should be killed so that I should
be fed." However, other mem-
bers of Miss DaBoo's family eat
meat every day.
Miss DaBoo feels that Commun-
ism *is gaining ground in India
and is especially popular with stu-
dents at the University of India.
Before coming to this country
the American Consulate investi-
gated to ensure that she had no
sympathies with the Communist
party.
Realizing the low status of her
country's women, Miss DaBoo
hopes to find time to speak before
various women's clubs in the area
for the purpose of sending aid to
India.
Speech Pledges
Zeta Phi Eta, National Pro-
fessional Speech Fraternity for
women, pledged the following
new members on Saturday, Nov.
1. They are Patricia Texter,
Joan Heiderer, Carol Cregbaum,
Marilyn McWood, Sue Spurrier,
Melba Abril-Lemarque, Vonda
Genda, Diane Halbrook, Bever-
ly Arment, Sylvia Coplow, Jac-
queline Shiff, Margaret Pays-
ner, Gwen Arner, Mary Ann Al-
exander and Barbara Carse.

Bring Quick Results

With more than 50 students par-
ticipating in last week's bridge
night, 40 of them men, League and
Union officials hope more coeds
will reveal their plating skill from
8 to 10 p.m. tomorrow night at the
third floor of the Union.
Marilyn Hey and Art Bublitz, so-
cial chairmen of these groups, in-
vite all students to come either
stag or with a date to take part in
an evening of friendly competition.
Players will again be divided in-
to two groups with those mainly
interested in meeting new people
and playing socially in the first
group and the real bridge fans
participating in a duplicate bridge
tournament in the second section.
Last week popular records were
awarded to the winners of the du-
plicate tournament and the team
with the highest rubber score in
the social group.
Four fellows will be on hand to
help inexperienced players bid dif-
ficult hands.
Because of the many enthusias-
tic bridge fans on campus the Un-
ion and League hope to initiate
house and group competition, with

the mens' groups challenging the
women.
This plan, which calls for each
resident house to have'a team of
four players, is still in the plan-
ning stage. Letters explaining the
system will be sent to all house
groups for their approval.
A great deal of the bridge en-
thusiasm here can be attributed to
the weekly bridge classes sponsor-
ed by the League, which for the
last three years have been taught
by Ed Simmons.
These classes offer beginners an
opportunity to learn the funda-
mentals of the game by first lis-
tening to detailed instructions and
then putting the rules into opera-
tion by playing.
Bridge Lessons
Another in a series of weekly
bridge lessons will' be held to-
night with beginners meeting
from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Lea-
-gue and the more advanced
players meeting immediately
after them.

Evidences of political conflicts
that have been mounting since
the Republican convention last
summer and will climax at the
polls today have been very visible
on the campus recently.
During the past six months hot-
ly contested arguments by both
Ike and Adlai supporters have
rocked tle nation so that even the
most neutral citizen will demand
his rights on this election day.
Coeds on campus 'who have
reached the voting age of 21 years
conscientiously mailed absentee
ballots last week to exercise their
rights as citizens for the first time.

ever, that they exercised their own
ideas when marking the ballots.
"I wouldn't think of asking my
date for his political opinions,"
one indignant coed retorted.
The series of local bond issues
also was the source of much con-
fusion to many voters. With over
40 bond proposals up for public
consideration confronting one co
ed, the student sought the advice
of her parents. By air mail came
the reply in three words, "Vote for
sewers." She got the picture.

ed" at the American dating cos-
toms.
As she explained, "In India girls
can't go out after eight o'clock
with men they don't know well,
and after 9 o'clock it just is not
allowed."
SIMILAR to the old European
custom, marriages in India are
usually arranged by both sets of
parents before their children are
18 years old.
Miss DaBoo believes Ann Ar-
bor is an ideal place because of
the kind, helpful and obliging
people.
In this way, she feels that Amer-
icans mostly resemble Parsi's, the
faith which she follows.
PARSI'S BELIEVE in the Zor-
oastrien religion, one of the oldest
religions in the world, founded by
the Prophet Zoroaster. They be-
