Sixteen elementary classes are
now being offered in fencing.
"Coeds majoring in music and
drama can especially benefit from
the course, because it teaches

'Mrs. D' Endears Herself
To Martha Cook Women
By ELAINE EDMONDS
Strains of the traditional "Happy
Birthday" will echo in the dining
room of Martha Cook tonight at
the dinner honoring the birthday
of Mrs. Leona B. Diekema, house
director, and the birthdays of all
the residents of the building.
Mrs. Diekema, affectionately
known as 'Mrs. D' by the coeds
and alumnae of Martha Cook, is a
graduate of Ann Arbor High
School. She received her A.B. in
history from the University in 1908,
to The Netherlands, where they
spent the next three years.
As the wife of a diplomat she
was known for her hospitality and
discernment in understanding the
complexities of a foreign capital.
The gracious and dignified sil-
ver-haired house director was the
original alumnae candidate for the
position of the first woman regent
of the University in 1929. She with-
drew her name, however, for it
was at this time that her hus-
band received his appointment
While at the University during
her undergraduate days, she was
secretary of the senior class and
president of Mortar Board as well
as being active in her sorority,
Kappa Alpha Theta.
Mrs. Diekema spent the years
from 1934 to 1939 at Stanford Uni-
versity where she was director of

1939 Mrs. Diekema has served as
president of the Women's Republi-
can Club, vice-chairman of the
city Republican committee, presi-
dent of the Michigan Alumnae
Club of Ann Arbor, a member of
the Michigan Alumnae Council and
a board member for the Ann Arbor
branch of the American Cancer
Expressing the philosophy which
has endeared her to hundreds of
young people Mrs. Diekema said,
"If in any way I can be useful in
sharing experiences or in discuss-
ing ideas, and if I can be helpful
in setting up ideals for the respon-
sibility and the service that lies
ahead, to me that is true satisfac-

"I enjoy working with young
people, for they are the future,"
commented Mrs. Diekema on her
work with students. "I am enter-
tained by their cleverness and I
marvel at their versatility.
