Miss Catherine Allen, Pro
fessor of Modern Languages at
Meredith^ who went as a voting
deleg-ate to tlie International
Association of University Wo
men held in Edinburgh', Scot
land, this past summer, reports
a most interesting time spent
entirely in ithe British Isles.
While in England, she made her
home in Crosby Hall, Head
quarters of the British Federa
tion of University Women. .
An a'titomobile trip was made
for a week by Miss Alien into
Somerset, Devonshire, and'old
Cornwxill, one of the loveliest
parts of rural England.
A never to be forgotten ex
perience was Miss Allen’s
priviloge'--of visiting Stratford-
on-Avon where two plays of
Shakespeare, "M i d s u m m e r
Night’s Dream” and “King
Lear” were greatly enjoyed in
the liew Memorial Tlieater. The
university towns of Cambridge
and Oxford with their associa
tions of Coleridge, Wordsworth,
and Southey, and the old Abbey
at Whitby where the poet Caed
mon, the earliest of English
song writers, lived, were visited.
In discussing her trip, Miss
Allen said, “The border country
with its unforgettable connec
tion with Sir Walter Scott,
jVbbotsford, Melrose, and Dry-
burg’h abbies tempted one to
linger long in these delightful
places bccause of their histori
cal and literaiy significance.

arhiy and navy until there is a
change in the European situa
tion,” Dr. Charles Lee Smith
told the Meredith girls in a lec
ture sponsored by the ^Interna-
tional Relations Club Friday eve
ning, October 6.
Speaking of Europe as a whole,
J)r. Smith said tiiat throughout
the entire continent there is a
feeling of distrust, of animosity
toward the League of Nations,
and an effort to avoid the pay
ment of the war debt. Russia,
ho continued, has as her prime
object the destruction of every
thing. She >vants class revolu
tion and the dictrttorship of the
proletariat. He was told by a
prominent Russian refugee in
Paris, tliat when three persons
were seen talking togetlier on the
streets of Moscow you miglit be
sure two were spies—so prevalent
is their distrust of each other.
Russia’s wl^ole plan is one of de
struction, and Dr. Smith warned
the girls about the insidious at
tempts to spread Russian propa
ganda in American schools and
Turning next to Germany,
