All church women of Algona were invited.-Miss Christian spent most of the week hcr.e and made talks at the Presbyterian Men's Club, the church at Irvington and the Kiwanis luncheon. She 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. Her last name is appropriate, also for her family has been followers of the faith for three generations and Sushile, as she is called, has chosen a Christian vocation. After six more years of study in the United States, she plans to return to her native India as a medical missionary. Sushile has just turned 18 and she is a bit more serious than the average American teen-ager. "I'm a lot more serious now than when I came here when I \yas 16", she says. "I thought coming to America was a lark and that I could go home any time I wanted. My sister changed my mind." The older sister, since returned to India, was working with their country's delegation to the United Nations in New York and Su- shile had her first year of college there. At Dubuquc 1 , she rooms with another sister and a brother is also in school there. "That way, we can all be homesick together , said Sushile. The University of Dubuque is Sushile's first experience in attending a co-educational school, and although she admits that having 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 nf two and six a.m. and depends on naps for her rest. She speaks eight languages and '20 dialects. She has met former Algona Coach, Moco Mercer who has been at the University of UubuqiiL' lor the past several years. The Christian family home is near Bombay. There are six girls and three boys. The father- is a judgj and a diplomat and the mother is the principal of a high afhixil. Their 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, Su.shile has been trained in the honiemaking skills and i;: a good cook.
