Th* undergradu ­ ate from th* Western University, where she associates mostly with people who Ilk* to write or to paint, or who are Interested In creative work of some sort, hs* a nicely balanced opinion about the youth or the day. It la largely this: abe likes eastern,man and western girl*. Th* reason she tikes eastsrn men Is because they amaze her so much with their manner*. \Flret time Rumsey eald he'd pack my coat, I Just couldn't understand It.\ she said honestly. \I said to him, ‘ I don't need anybody to pack my coat for me. I've been doing It for years.' But he ssld, 'But I'd Like to carry your coat for you.' 80 I said. •Well, then, go ahead. Out west, w* pack our own coats and no ­ body offer* to help u*.' \ The Incident must hav# been enlightening for both of them. It was Miss Collins' Introduction to the graceful wayg and gracious manners she has since found repeated In each of Am eastern men whom she has met. And It was probably. Rumsey Marvin's first contact with a gfrl who not -only didn't expect a gallant chivalry to mark bis attitude toward her hut who didn't understand IL Mis* Colllne still doesn't understand It — but that doesn't keep her from Aking It.

And how well ’ doe* this word deserve thla meaning which It baa had ever since It was first used by our an ­ cient Romans.

But Miss Collins thinks there la leas superficiality in th* weal, particularly among the women. The eastern woman's ability to take her leisure calmly and to ue* It up lavishly aattptjjde her. Out In Berkley, there la always something to be done — Men when one go** out. one le never quiet. Eastern women can alt placidly, beautifully gowned, entirely poised, and dtvola themselves to the exclusive pursuit of time wasting. Their efficiency In th# occu ­ pation and, the persistency with which they pursue It. astounds her. Therel seems to be so much mors energy, Initiative, ambl- •tion among western women, so much mors depth, more vision. jNever, In the western circle* In which Mina Colllnajias moved, has she encountered young women who are mg 'seriously Inter ­ ested In some pursuit Her* so many are seriously Interested In nothing and are adept* at accomplishing the same.

But Misa Collin* find* th# weather Intereating — Juat as everything In the east la Intereating because It'* so different. What the difference Is she can't say definitely. It's something atmospheric, subtle, essential. Life proceeds at a pace varying widely from the western pace; the people here approach It from viewpoints varying widsly from western viewpoints.
