g part n Mexican Co-eds Progress National University Opens Dormitory for Girl Students BY CHRISTY FOX MEXICO CITY, Sept. 9. Women are gaining new prominence at the University of Mexico, long a stronghold of education tor men. A small residence hall run by the Mexican Association of University Women and sponsored by the university now boasts the first board-and-room accommodations ever .available on the campus for women students. I talked with the university's president, Rudolfo Brito Foueh-er, and caught his enthusiasm in the advances being made for women here. Of course, the plans are moving slowly. The residence for women as yet is only an experiment. But it is working out so successfully that It should open a whole new field for women students, making it possible for more girls to come to the city from the outlying states and live under university upervision. Backed by Faculty Women Senorita Luz Grovas is dean tt women. She is a soft-spoken woman whose heart is in this experiment as is that of charming Senorita Maria Teresa Chavez, president of the University Women's Association. Both have traveled the United States and know many educators there. Senorita Grovas spoke of Dr. Mary Sinclair Crawford, former dean of women at the University of Southern California. In the basement of the residence hall the university operates a clinic for tubercular students. Co-eds do not confine them- elves to liberal arts courses, i HH( ' jJ" ' ....

WIIaSOX Mrs. Adolph Sieroty, leader of the Los Angeles community and founder of the Hadassah here, has returned from the American Jewish conference in New York. American Jews, she says the conference revealed, are un-precedentedly impressed with the necessity of rescuing and rehabilitating' their people whoi have suffered in Europe. And "f 7 j T the task, she added, has be- VjrQrCZGIl LsillJD come so great mai ine unuea Nations must be asked to help IT'S THE NAVY Lieut. Comdr. Turner F. Caldwell and Lynn Bari of the Naval Aid Auxiliary share their mutual interest the Navy as they discuss N.A.A.'s benefit performance of "Play Time," running currently in Hollywood. They are courageous in their ambitions to study law, medicine, chemistry, commerce, dentistry, nursing and engineering. Back of this women s educa tion movement is the force of the Mexican Association of L'ni- versity Women organized in 1921. About 100 members have sponsored such "firsts" in Mexico City as an institute of languages, a children's story hour. children's court and the resi dence hall. Another new trend is Mexico's first women's university, the Uni-versidad Femenina de Mexico, opened In February near the famous forest of Chapultepec, and under direction of Senora Adela Formoso de Ohregon Santacilia. This private institution was founded to provide a university for the girls of traditional Mexican families who still hesitate to permit their daughters to attend a co-educational school. accomplish it "It was the greatest spiritual experience I ever had," Mrs. Sieroty said. She recalled conference discussions on the practical side of building a commonwealth in Palestine, of saving Jewish children in Nazi-dominated countries, of getting food and clothing to the Jews still crowded in Axis-controlled ghettos. "We have to double or triple our efforts and ask the help of the United States and Great Britain," she asserter. Mrs. Desoto Poole, national president of Hadassah, told the conference that on the day she spoke 102 child refugees had arrived in Palestine, and that recently her organization had sent $110,000 for their care. "That work must go on." Mrs. Sieroty said. "That is the responsibility of our women and for it we will continue to strive. But the rescue and establishing of Jewish people In Palestine is possible only through abrogation of the Palestine white paper of 103!, which limited Jewish immigration and which will halt it in March." Mrs. Sieroty says this !s the first step toward ending anti-Semitism and preserving Jewish culture built through centuries. Luncheon Set A noon luncheon Monday in the garden of Mrs. William L.

SOUNDINGS BY LUCILLE LEIMERT XEW MAGIC Maps discarded by the city of Los Angeles engineer's office are not destroyed, but are boiled until all color and print have vanished. The fine lawn remaining is converted into dainty baby dresses which are distributed to wives of servicemen by the Red Cross. CHEER Mrs. Hazel Parant of Seattle has worked out an interesting war job. Four months ago she revealed it to a number of florists and received immediate support. All of which makes it possible for her to set out every Saturday morning in a Red Cross station wagon loaded with flowers which she takes to naval and military hospitals and arranges them on patients' beside tables. It's a real event when Hazel arrives. You have no idea how one velvety rose can change a whole day for a lad. GRATEFUL Terry Hersh-man sends me this excerpt from a bread-and-butter letter written by a soldier to his hostess. "I know one big thing this war has accomplished for us on this side of the world. It is a greater appreciation of our families, friends, communities and nation. For those of yon at home don't fail to appreciate what you have! Don't take it for granted! Work for It! Fight for It! And, if necessary, die for it!" Terry says the writer Is the father of a 19-month-old daughter whom he has not seen since she was 1 month old.
