was the point upon which Miss
Detzer and Gardner Jack
■ eed yesterday when they spoke
at a meeting of Barnard College alum
nae at Harvey’s Restaurant. There
were many other points on which they
were not in agreement. Miss Detzer
la the national secretary of the Wom

and Freedom, and an ardent pacifist.
Mr. Jackson, of Labor's Non-Partisan
League, believes force must be met
with force and that there can be no
peace while the threat of Fascism
Mrs. Eugene Meyer, a Barnard
alumna, presided over the meeting.
Miss Detzer's remarks dealt with
the "failure” of the Government to
act in the Spanish, Ethiopian and
Chinese crises. Although she con

satisfactory, she would like to see it
enforced against the nations now at
Mr. Jackson urged the importance
ef a union between farmers and labor.
He said the time might soon come

Co-Eds at A. V.
Are Soiv Plotting
For “Fall of Man”
Cop ond Gown Sponsors
Charm School at
Co-eds at American University are
plotting another fall of man—par
ticularly the man at the university!
Under the sponsorship of Cap and
Oown, senior women’s honorary
group, the co-eds are going to attend
• special charm school to be opened
In February to cultivate the feminine
personality for both men and jobs.
The charm classes, for women only,
will be conducted along lines of in
formal discussion following lectures
by competent authorities. According
to campus reports, they will deal with
problems of dress, make-up, conver
sation, posture, coiffure and person
ality in general.
According to the American Uni
versity Eagle, student publication, the
Idea of a charm school is not entirely
new since there is one at Stephens
College in Missouri as a part of the
regular school curriculum. The school
to be opened here will instruct its
pupils as an extra-curricular activity.
