Glimpses into the lives of some
American women in history pro-
vide an approach on paper by the
Clements' Library to underline the
current University series portray-
ing "Women in the World of Man."
Highlighting women in history,
for instance, are two letters, one
by Martha Washington and another
by Mrs. Paul Revere.
Martha Washington, who in 1781
wrote to her home at Mount Vern-
on, inquires about the state of af-
fairs in the household. The letter
by Mrs. Paul Revere is to her
husband in Boston and is dated
In pre-Revolution times Indians
captured two women. whose exper-
iences were subsequently recorded
and now are on display in book
form at the Library.
One was Mrs. Elizabeth Hanson,
who with her four children and
servant-maid, was taken captive.
The other was Mrs. Mary Jami-
son captured by Indians in 1755 at
the age of 12.
A book printed by Mrs. John
Peter Zenger, wife of the editor
who was tried by the crown in
defense of freedom of the press,
which is on display is representa-
tive of the character of the work
she did after her husband's death.
Historical copies of the music of
the "Battle Hymn of the Republic"
by Mrs. Julia Ward Howe and the
"United States Marine March"
composed by A Lady of Charleston
are also among the exhibitions.

ings on Women Suffrage and the
rights and education of women are

ment of their masters and bache-
lors degrees in music.

Friday that school design in Mich-I

Addressing the Michigan State1
College governmental workshop,1
Schimmel said Michigan school
districts are not getting as much
school space as they could with1
the dollars they spend. They spent
100 million dollars this year.
Some schools are being built1
"in a hodge-podge fashion and by
architects "who may never have
built anything more than a gas
station before." School bond at-
torneys often are not familiar with
bonding procedures, he said.
Opposition to school standardi-
zation, Schimmel said, comes from
"local pride and architects."
The cost of Michigan schools
ranged from $12,000 to $30,000 a
room, he said.
Dr. Clyde M. Campbell of Mich-
igan State's department of educa-
tional administration, said t h e

struction passes on all local school
plans, but he objected to stan-

The trend, he said, should be
toward experimentation instead.
