Vera Dean came to Salem Cam pus bringing a snre sign of spring in the white sailor straw hat trim med with graen flowers'and veiling ■which she wore. But Mrs. Dean was not there to talk of spring fashions, she ai)peared intensely interested in her subject of postwar Planning and anxious to speak of that. Mrs. Dean is a charming and gracious i>erson, poised and com pletely at ease. Hers is not a vi vacious personality, but one display ing deep thought, intelligence and an infectious seriousness about fut ure- foreign relations and postwar planning. In a well-podulated voice, bear ing a slight trace of an accent, Mrs. Dean spoke of the student’s part in postwar planning. It is important, she said, for future stu dents to acquaint themselves with the problems confronting our nation today and that will arise after the war. It is a particular responsibility for women students as they have the Opportunity to complete their education without interruption. It is up. to-every girl to make use of all her educational facilitiesj but all citizens should be alert in regard to international affairs for the for- yiflatiop of . an , intelligent foreign policy; this is the task of all.
