Charm Bracelet Tells Bromfield Story

The bracelet she wears tells a
lot about Jean Bromfield.
Rarely off her wrist, the ex-
aggerated charm bracelet holds re-
plicas of the organizations which
have kept Jean's calendar full dur-
ing four colorful Ann Arbor years.
Dangling from it is a. key for
Panhellenic Association, whose
president she was until February.
It holds the insignia of Scroll sen-
ior honorary, given Miss Brom-
field, '55, in recognition of her
work on Panhel, Joint Judiciary
Council, Student Activities Build-
ing Committee and work within
Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority.
Wedding Set for August
It's filled out with honorary
keys of Miss Bromfield's fiance,
a prospective lawyer, who warned
her not to comment on him dur-
ing her interview. He apparently
asked too much: Jean's thoughts
ar currently filled with plans for
their August wedding.
Jean, who shares the home base
of Oak Park, Ill., with Ernest
Hemingway, voiced doubt that
she'd provide very interesting pro-
file material. "I'm always read-
ing these profiles on self-made
people who've sprung up from
Greewich Village sitting around
in candle-lit atmospheres," she
said, "but I'm just an average
Midwesterner - Republican be-
cause my family is.1
"I tried hard to think of one,"
she added, "but I guess I don't ev-
en have a hobby!"
Friends Disagree
Her friends' accounts of Jean's
career don't jibe with her own.
"Own reason she's such 'a genu-
inely likeable person," according
to one, "is her warmth and sin-
cerity. Sounds trite, but in this
case it's true."
Until their wedding, she and
her fiance spend weekends rather
quietly-walking ("I've become ad-
dicted to long walks," she smiles,
"since my bike, in the repair, shop,
costs too much to take") and
It's the academic side of the
University that led Jean to -re-
sign "although it broke my heart"
from her Panhel position. "But I
realized that I had to graduate
too, and that at the rate I was
going I might not have."
Of Panhel she speaks at length.
Among chief accomplishments of
her year in office she cites the
Emergency Fund, set up last fall
for grants to affiliate women in
sudden financial need. Thi step,
she thinks, has helped to break
the "stereotype that if you can
afford a sorority you cn afford
"People don't realize," she add-
ed, "how many affiliates put them-
selves through school almost en-
Machine for Dirty Work
She looks on the improved rush-
ing system as another important
Panhel move. With the annual
renting of an IBM machine dur-
ing rush season to do the "dirty
work," Panhel officers may now
devote necessary long hours to the
personal and individual side of
rushing-"by far," Miss Bromfield
insists, "the most important part."
Rushing, she foresees, is in for
a complete reevaluation, in the
light of vastly-increasing numbers
of rushees. The campus' two new-
est sororities can be expected to
aid this situation, she thinks, as
will the new Panhel policy of hold-
ing rush registration during the
Looking forward to the time
she'll be able to browse freely
through a library, the English ma-
jor claims her field is "fabulous, if
you want to try to squeeze in all
the courses you want to take in
four years."
Anything With People
A former Daily staff member,
she recalls freshman-year plans to

concentrate in journalism, with
career plans for personnel or ad-

Comments on South American Income



--Daily-Fred Day
... pistachio nuts, lost pens and Panhel

vertising-anything, so long as it
has to do with people."
Revised plans have resigned
Jean to any job she can get in the
vicinity of whatever Army camp
she moves to in October, when her
fiance will be drafted.
Idiosyncracies? The tall and
slim senior admits she has a few.
"I lose fountain pens like mad,"
she smiles, "one right after anoth-
er. And I love pistachio nuts."
Slicker Lost
She's disgruntled, too, that "in
this, of all semesters" she's lost
her slicker, and must fight April
drizzles with a variety of "strange
Another unique claim: "You've
got to mention that I've gone
through four years here without
playing bridge"-a feat which
amazes her sorority sisters.

Although she now has "almost
too much spare time"-and even
finds hours to take golf in fulfill-
ment of a forgotten physical edu-
cation requirement - she doesn't
regret a minute of her countless
activity hours.
"Activities," she insists, "putI
you, personally, on top. You learn'
organizing and planning and you
get to know really great people all
over the University."
Apathy? "I've come face to face
with it a few times," Jean recalls.
"and when I have it's amazed me.
But there's not much of it in the
part of the campus I've encounter-
To the University the outgoing
Panhel head feels she owes a great
debt-"one I'll probably never be
able to repay."


Income of the average South
American should double in the
next 50 years, says Prof. J. Phillip
Wernette of the School of Business
Prof. Wernette recently com-
pleted a six-week tour of South
America for the State Department.
Visiting six capital cities, he de-
livered 15 public addresses, all but
one in Spanish.
Prof. Wernette spoke on ' two
general topics, "Future Prosperity
of Latin America" and "Free En-
terprise Versus Communism."
Views Changes
"The trip provided me with a
chance to compare the Latin
America of today with that of 25
years ago," Prof. Wernette said. He
spent 1929 in Bogata, Columbia,
and 1931 in Lima, Peru.
"Now I know what Rip Van
Winkel felt like," he laughed. "I
see evidence of much industrial
growth and increase of wealth.
. "There are elements of turbu-
lence, however. Brazil and Chile
are in the throes of inflation. The
cost of living in Chile went up 70
per cent last year," he said. "There
was quite a stir there when statis-
tics revealed that Chile led the
world in inflation last year."
Second State Department Tour
Prof. Wernette's South Ameri-
can swing was the second State
Department sponsored tour made
by a University faculty member
in recent months. Not very long
ago, Dean Ralph Sawyer, Rack-
ham School of Graduate Studies,
went to Germany. There he lec-
tured on uses of atomic energy.
Prof. Wernette logged a total of
13,000 air miles on the trip. Ac-
companied by his wife, he visited
Bogata; Lima; Santiago; Chile;
Buenos Aires, Argentina; Monte-
video, Uraguay; Rio De Janiero,
Brazil and Cali, Columbia.
Speaking before business groups,
university students and Rotary
Clubs, Prof. Wernette delivered all
but one speech in Spanish. In
Buenos Aires he was requested to
speak in English.
Spoke in Spanish
"The tough thing about speak-
ing in Spanish was the question
and answer periods after the ad-
dress," he gruffs. "Believe me, it
was tough."
The mustachioed lecturer's talk
on free enterprise vs. communism
was well backed by a year spent
in Russia in the early 1930's.
"I- was surprised that I didn't
have any trouble with Communist
hecklers," Prof. Wernette said. "I
fully expected to be heckled. No
one showed up with even a tinge
of pink."
Prof. Wernette was in Montevi-
deo on April 12, the day the Salk
vaccine story broke.
Polio Epidemic
"There was a terrific polio epi-
demic going on in Montevideo
then. When the Salk news broke,
the papers carried nothing else. I
saw an opportunity for a good will
gesture, and cabled President Ei-
senhower about the sitation,"
Prof. Wernette related.
"Uraguay is the only country
having a major polio epidemic at
the present time. Quick shipment
of the vaccine to Montevideo
would have been a gesture of good
will appreciated throughout the
Met University Alumni
Prof. Wernette was struck with
the great number of University
alumni in South America. Before
leavin g he. was given a' list of'
alumni and was able to see a great
many of them while there.
"At a cocktail party in Santia-
go," he related, "I met the head of
the Chilean telephone company, a
1923 Michigan engineering gradu-
ate. He asked us if we would like
to .call anywhere.
"The next morning the phone
rang in Ann Arbor, and we talked
to our astonished but happy son."
Such are the benefits of an alum-
ni program, P r o f. Wernette
