Modern society tends to under-I
valuate the importance of women in
the advancement of society in that
the greatest achievements are unre-
corded in history, Prof. Dumas Ma -
lone,director of the Harvard Univer-
sity Press, told an American Culture
and Institutions audience yesterday.
Professor Malone enumerated sev-
eral women-ancestors, starting with
Virginia Dare, born in 1587, who is
typed as the beginning of American
womanhood. He then traced the
course to Dolly Madison, famous
American hostess who was First Lady
for 16 years.
The rise of women to public prom-
inence is a phenomenon of the last
100 years occurring in the era of
emancipation and expansion. Five,
dates mark the chief fields in which
women were to find achievement
later. Malone listed them in the fol-
lowing order: 1821, founding of Troy
Female Seminar, which was the first
tangible step toward high education;
1848, meeting of the first Women's
Rights Convention in Washington;
1851-1852, first appearance of Uncle
Tom's Cabin; 1875, Mary Baker Ed-
dy's "Science and Health" and 1881,
founding of the American Red Cross.
Education First Field
The first field in which women
concentrated their efforts was edu-
cation, concerning which Malone
said: "The serviceability of women
in education will never be measured
by the position which they have at-
tained." More women, he continued,
are distinguished on the stage than
anywhere else; however, the field
of literature is the greatest in gener-
al because it approaches the closest'
to domesticity and there are fewer

barriers of sex, ratio and geography.
The great pioneer feminists en-
gaged in the Women's Rights Move-
ment began as reformers in other
fields. "Reformers," Malone said,
"tend to be destructive-we need
builders rather than wreckers. They
are peculiarly unattractive in that
they lack humor and tend to be
intolerant of other people." H^ im-
mediately followed this statement by
declaring that the women of the
Rights Movement were not trying to
take the rights away from the men
but rather to give these rights to the
women, thus, their aim was con-
structive. Leaders in this group were
such famous ones as Susan B. An-
thony, Anna Shaw and Julia Ward
New England Women
More; than one-half of the women
Malone referred to during 'the lec-
ture were bqrn in New England and
the main reason for this, the speaker
stated, was because educational op-
portunities were greater there at
earlier times than anywhere else.
In the latter part of his talk, Ma-
lone expressed his belief that "the
philosophy of the Nazi government
is opposed to that for which the wo-
men have been struggling. If any-
one should stop them, it should be
the women.
Malone concluded his one-hour
lecture with: "I can say in looking
ahead that it is a great comfort to
think of the existence of the Amer-
ican women."

Among the many July engagements
of interest to University circles is
that of Marilyn Johnson, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Carl A. Johnson, of
Huntington Woods, to Donald H. Bel-
den, '39, son of Mr. and Mrs. Clem-
ents G. Belden, of Vinsetta Park.
The news was revealed last Satur-
day at a team for more than 50
friends in the Johnson home, when
white scrolls telling of the betrothal
were given to the guests. Camilla
Ayres and Elaine Sandt, former stu-
dents, assisted as hostesses.
Miss Johnson is a former student
of Michigan State College and the
University of Kentucky. Mr. Belden,
a member of Delta Tau Delta fra-
ternity, was graduated from the Uni-
versity, where he was very prominent
in campus affairs. -He received his
master's degree here last month.
The wedding of an alumnus of the
University was performed Monday in
Radford, Va., when Mrs. Ada Lou
Baber, of Radford, was married to
Waldeck Wolf Levi, son of Prof.-Em-
eritus Moritz Levi and Mrs. Levi of
Ann Arbor.
Only the two immediate families
of the couple were present at the
simple ceremony, which took place in
the home of the bride. Mrs. Levi
is the daughter of Mrs. D. P. Hurley,
of Radford, and the late Rev. Mr.
The bride is a graduate of Rad-
ford State Teachers College, and her
husband is a graduate of the Uni-
versity. Prof. and Mrs. Levi were
both graduated here, and Prof. Levi
has been on the faculty of the French
department since 1890.
