French Clothes Chic But Drab Says Sabin NUer Attends School In Paris By GRACE HARVEY Staff Writer "French women are very style- conscious overly so." According to Ellen Sabin, freshman in Arts and Sciences from New York City, the weaker sex in France are "nuts about clothes. How ever," she added, "although they wear only the latest costumes they are of dark, drab colors." Miss Sabin said French school girls, instead of wearing the typically American bobby sox and skirts and sweaters, are re quired to wear uniforms. As a result of her lather s po sition as chief , of the' milk con servation program of the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund, Miss Sabin has lived in Washington, D. C, Ne:v York City, Laramis.Wyo.. and Paris, France. MISS SABIN'S family sailed for Europe July 19, 1949 to spend a year in the French capital. A freshman in - high school, Miss Sabin attended the American Community School in Paris. She said that only English-speaking students attend this high school. All classes were taught in Eng lish, except the foreign language courses. In these classrooms only the language of the course was spoken. The school was located in what had formerly been ' a private mansion. As most Euro pean homes are, it. was fenced so that no one could see in. MISS SABIN'S family lived in four-room fifth, floor apart ment in Paris. "There was an elevator up, but it wouldn't go down again, she said. Miss Sabin said, "The rooms In that apartment were so tiny that it was only 75 jace from ; .. v- k-v .oi . it ... m. a .SSMt.vjfc. j..

Candidates For Rhodes Announced Rystrom, Johnson Endorsed By NU Ken Rystrom and Wayne John son, both seniors in the College of Arts and Sciences, were selected Monday to represent the University as candidates for Rhodes Scholarships for 1954 1955. The candidates were selected by Harold W. Manter, professor of zoology; Lane W. Lancaster, professor of political science; Clarence McNeill, professor of economics and David Dow, pro fessor of law. THIRTY-TWO Rhodes Schol arships are assigned annually to the United States. The states are grouped into eight districts of six states each in order to make the appointments. The candidates from all of the colleges in Nebraska who are submitting applicants will be in terviewed by the state committee on Dec. 9. Application may be made in either the state in which they have ordinary home and resi dence, or in any state in which they have received at least two years of college training. CANDIDATES are first nomi nated by the states; two candi dates from each state' then ap pear before the district commit tee. Four men are selected from the twelve candidates to repre sent their states as Rhodes Scholars at Oxford University. The six states in this district include: Nebraska, Minnesota, South Dakota, Iowa, Missouri and Kansas. Rhodes scholars have the op portunity to choose a course of study at Oxford, which will be carried out for a period of at least two years. TO BE eligible for the schol arships, one must be a male ci tizen, unmarried, between the ages of 19 and 25, with certain exceptions, and have a junior standing at a recognized college or university in the United States which grants degrees. one end of the kitchen to the opposite end of the dining-living room. There was no refrigera tion and the gas for their little gas cook stove was always turned down to its lowest ebb when it was time to prepare meals." She added, "The only nice furniture in the French apartments was that in ported by Americans." While in Europe, Miss Sabin toured Belgium, northern Italy, Switzerland, England, and the Netherlands at tulip time. SHE OBSERVED, "Europe is an interesting place to visit. You can observe new cultures and at tempt to learn to understand the people and their views. You see international relations from a different angle. For instance, you begin to understand just why the French will not co-operate with Germany in their fight over the Saar Valley. More important, you become more aware of the real conflicts over Communism in France." Miss Sabin said, "The French people are hard to get acquainted with because of the language barrier. . They resent the fact that Americans do not speak French. They think that we don't care enough about them to learn their language, while they are required to take English in school." She added, "French girls do not wear makeup until they are IS. Boys and girls are held down to the old customs of proper Introductions and chaper ones until they reach that age. After that, however, many of them run wild doing whatever they choose." .
