ciceA # • • Homes the Students' Workshop id F. Gfafty, 349 s! West St h6 dwfhtif of Mi. and Mfa. Ray- fiiond Miss Barbara Cratty, who has completed the one year program of study offered by Loyola University of Rome and will take additional classes this year, believes that the city is the 'deal workshop for students of history and political science. — "You can read one c Cicero's orations and then walk down to the place where was delivered," she said. "The city is not yet too cluttered up with foreign universities and ex cellent teachers are available." Professors with reputations as historians, well acquainted with Roman politics and the intricate workings of the Vatican and who can summarize happenings in the various mid-European countries lecture at the university. "The Italians themselves are interested in politics and are a ways discussing the political sit uation," Miss Cratty continued "and they want to learn the visi tor's background and viewpoint.' Last year having been an elec Hon year students could see first hand the maneuvering of the sev eral political factions in Italy, Current events, such as the squabble over the Common Mar ket made them aware of the im plications of international politics. The African and South Ameri can students attending the university seem to be the most interested in the changes of policy she noted, offering the explanation that it was probably because their countries were in a state of change. A Roman-forum-type program, sponsored by embassy was set up with the speakers being experts in political science. In an informal atmosphere students asked questions and got answers from specialists. One of the lecturers was the assistant director of the Peace Corps. Miss Cratty's original purpose in studying at the university in First Christian Church * Scene Of Ceremony Mrs. Frances Dack and Manzelle E. Lawler, both of Galesburg, wjere married ^at 4 5 o'clock Saturday afternoon, at First Christian Church. Rev. James E. Smith officiated at the ceremony in the presence of the families of the couple. Attendants were Mr. and Mrs. Harry Hinman of Peoria, broth• er-in-law and sister of Mr. Lawler. \ Mrs. Dack accented her rose colored dress with white accessories and an orchid Corsage. A pink orchid corsage was the floral accent for Mrs. Hinman 's beige dress and black Accessories. Mr. and Mrs. Lawler are residing at 537 N. Cedar St. Coming from out of town for the wedding were Mr. and Mrs. Sam Ewalt, Mrs. Lawler's brother and sister-in-law, of California. Wigged Suggestion A wig, in the same color as your own hair, is a lifesaver during the swimming season. No need to leave the beach in the middle of a sunny afternoon so that you can put up your hair for a dinner engagement that evening, Rome was that it would assist her in providing background for working in the State Department. Another Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College graduate, but of the Class of '41, Miss Jean Mary Wilkowski, is presently first secretary at the American Embassy in Rome. Miss Johanna Reichel who was also graduated from Corpus Christi High School and Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, in the same class as Miss Cratty, has been a Fulbright student at Aix-eiv-Provense, near Marseilles, France, and the two young women spent four days together in Rome at Easter. Miss Reichel who is still touring in Europe will return to the United States in mid-July. An Emotional People An emotional people by nature, Miss Cratty found the Italians "fun to be with." The men are courteous and gay but girls who dated them frequently, noted that they have a tendency toward possessiveness. Students at the university Could take conducted^ tours to places of interest or could "go on their own..'^ Hitch-hiking is an accepted practice in Italy and those who tried this mode of travel found that if they stayed at hostels the sum of $15 would be sufficient for a very rewarding weekend ;Of sight-seeing. On the other hand one could travel much more luxuriously. Miss Cratty considers Rome, itself, expensive to live in. Other parts of the country are not so much'so. "Rome has a certain class society," she said, "and everyone, no matter what his position, dresses well. Even domestics going to and from their work have good clothes." The Italians are appalled at the careless dress habits of the American tourist and are horrified at the girls' sneakers and flats. An Italian girl would not think of going on a date unless she were in "heels," she said. Shopping in Rome they found beautiful Italian silks and of course the fabulous "Italian knits." There is very little cotton but much linen in suits and shifts, is worn. They learned that the city is full of seamstresses who make anything one wishes at a reasonable price. Rome is becoming modernized and has a supermarket and two laundromats, one of which the students used as they found that they used maid service it took two weeks to get their laundered clothes back. The Italian people are trying to learn English so that it will be easier to converse with the many tourists and students visiting the country, Miss Cratty pointed out. They are greatly appreciative if one can speak a / little of their anguage to make himself understood. Actually the Galesburg student had no language difficulty as her ollege major was French, which is an accepted language on the continent, and she fqund Italian comparatively easy to learn. This year she hopes to master the language. News for and About Women future deride... MR. AND MRS. VIRGIL E.
