Miss Christian spent most of the week here and made talks at the Presbyterian Men's Club, the church at Irvington I ana the Kiwanis luncheon. She 1 was the house guest of Mr and Mrs A. W. Huenhold, who found her most interesting and charming. In India, Sushilbala means, beautiful maiden", and she is appropriately named. She has expressive black eyes, an olive complexion and long shining dark hair, worn simply in braids. Pier last name is appropriate, also for ler family has been followers of the faith for three generations and Sushile, as she is called, has chosen a Christian vocation. Af- er six more years of study in the Jnited States, she plans to re- urn to her native India as a med- cal missionary. Sushile has just turned 18 and he is a bit more serious than he average American teen-ager. I m a lot more serious now than vhen I came here when, I was 6", she says. "I thought coming o America was a lark and that could go home any time I want- d. My sister changed my mind." 'he older sister, since returned o India, was working with their ountrys delegation to the Unit- d Nations in New York and Su- iile had her first year of college lere. At Dubuquc, she rooms ith another sister and a brother s also in school there. "That way /e can all be homesick together'' 1 lid Sushile. The University of Dubuque is ushiles first experience m at- ending a co-educational school, net although she admits that avint; boys in her classes are a little distracting, she still manages to get straight A's as a pre-med sophomore. Customarily, she studies between the hours of two and six a.m. and depends on nap;-, for bur rest She speaks eight languages and 20 dialects. She has met former Algona Coach, Moco Mercer who has been at the University of fJubuque lor the past several years. The Christian family home is near Bombay. There are six girls and three boy.s. The father is a judge and a diplomat and the mother is the principal of a hitjh school. Their house' is large with all the conveniences we have but this is not true of the homes of the middle classes in India. The government provides the family with many servants and they have some' of their own However, Sushile has been trained in the homemaking skills and is a good cook. If she can hurdle the translation of ingredients problem, she has promised this writer some recipes. Sushile always wears her native costume, the only concession to western garb being the wearing of slacks for gym class. The Sari is not her only costume, but it is the Indian most familiar to us. The one in the picture is of pure silk, in brilliant tur- tiuoise. It must be skillfully draped to defy the force of gravity for it is one long piece ol material and no salety pins are used. The white blouse is beau-' tifully hand-embroidered in red arid multi-colored thread and se- Muins. A red underskirt is worn. It has a border much like the trim on the blouse. Miss Christian wears a tiny red mark on her forehead. When asked about this, she explained trial customarily in India this is mark indicating i-a.str. "But." d Sushile, "I am a Christian by convictiqn as well as family so for me 'there is no taste system. This line is merely a beauty mark." , •' ADVERTISING fh the Algoni Upper.
