Do-Flo- p swered All-Scho- -- A FRIEND e There has been much talk of the schools adopting a new Alma Mater song which will become the official song. What do you think of this? How about having our Student Council sponsor a contest to bring out a hidden talent? Whom should we have as judges, and what should lie given for the prize for the winning song? What kind of a song would you like? A serious hymn or a tightin song? You could write the words and the music alone or collaborate with a buddy. September 12 Sept. 13 iTBT extra-specia- Do you think we should have a new school song? One that is Westminsters If so, then why dont you exclusively? do something about it, and do it now? Lets not be putting it oir, or saying somebody else can do it, but make up our mind to do something about it ourselves.

Veteran Legislation Reviewed Public Law 239 has set the official end of the war as July 25, 1917, for the purpose of computing eligibility for veterans benefits under the G-- I Bill and also for Public Law Cl. Because of this, most veterans must have completed their educational proceeding by July 21, 1956. Public Law 338 provides for automatic increases in the minmum allowances paid to veterans in training under Public Law 16, whose disabilities are rated at 30 per cent or higher. This law requires no action by disabled trainees entitled to the higher rates, because the increases, effective September 1, 1917, will be paid automatically with the following check. A new Tuling by the Veterans Administration states that the periodic reports fo actual earnings filed by the veteran-student- s in the past are no longer required training. Veterans may secure full information of the new laws and regulations at their nearest VA offic, or from the VA training ofliccr on this campus.

Among the interesting new members of our faculty this year is a lady who has lived on three continents, speaks several languages fluently, and has very definite opinions concerning our life here in America. She is Dr. May Schwender, professor of German, Latin and French. Bom in Luegberg, Germany, Dr. Schwender received her Doctor of Philosophy degree from Bonn University when she was twenty-twyears of age. o She has spent twenty-twyears in China, eight of which were under the Japanese regime. Dr. Schwender arrived in the United States last May, bringing with her, twin daughters, Anna and Sophie. Anna, who is already known to us here on the campus, plans to major in journalism. Daughter Sophie is in California, and plans a major. In addition to her duties as mother and homemaker in China, Dr. Schwender worked several years on a German newspaper in Shanghai, writing the Womens Page. She has spent much time teaching languages, both in private lessons, and in schools. o dress-designin- g During llnr'iecenJ 'War, she 'woikcJs for General Marshall in his Military government. In the opinion ,of Dr. Schwender, America is fortunate indeed, since it is apparently the most prosperous and happy country in the entire world. The materials which we waste here in a single day could be put to good use by Chinas starving population. Among the approximately 450 million Chinese people, the percentage of Christians is exceedingly small. The estimates of various statisticians range from one half of one million, to ten million people of Christian faith in China. Nevertheless, these Christians several maintain colleges in China. These are usually of the boarding school type, and are staffed by "foreign Christians, largely Americans. The largest of these Christian schools, located at Shanghai, was closed during the recent war, but is now resuming operation. During the war. Dr. Schwender believes, the Chinese tended to adopt the ways of their oppressors, the Japanese. Much of their ancient gentle philosophy was exchanged for modern mercenary views. The feeling in China now seems to be one of China for the Chine, with an increasing dislike for foreigners. The greatest need in China today is for a definite set of principles, and methods. The Chinese will have to adopt either the modern methods of the Western World, or retain their own Oriental systems. They are a people confused and in need of help. Dr. Schwnder is the author of one published book, and her second, which deals with the war years in China, and the Nazi regime paralleled with the Chinese government of the period, is now ' ready for publication. So, let us welcome Dr. May Schwender to our campus, along with her daughter Anna Schwender, and offer them friendship and appreciation of the richness they have brought to us. . Alice McGarrigle.
