Wesleyan Women
Keep Early Hours,
Says Transcript
Michigan women who decry the
harsh injustice of the week-end clos-
ing hours, would tie well to read the
new rules for women at Ohio Wesley-
an. According to the Wesleyan Trans-
cript, the official college newespaper,
freshman women must be in their
houses by 7 o'clock every evening but
Friday and Saturday. On these latter
evenings they are accorded the liberal
privilege of 9:30 'and 10:30 dates re-
Sophomore women are this year to
have the same privileges as juniors
and seniors. They are allowed 9:30
permission every evening with the ex-
ception of Friday and Saturday even-
ings when they are required to end
their engagements at 10:30. The hated
sign-out slip will not be used for ev-
enings out, but absences such as
week-end visits, late permission, and
out-of-town shopping must still be
registered on these slips.
In addition to securing the permis-
sion of their parents, Wesleyan wom-
en must also have the consent of the
dean of women to ride in automo-
biles. The joy ride is not the casually
informal happening it is to the Michi-
gan student, but a complicated pro-
ceeding involving many requests for{
permission, enough to take the joy
out of any ride. Such permission
must also be secured in the case of
week-end trips, late car permission
from Columbus, nights spent in other
houses, and out-of-town shipping
trips. Such privileges as the dean of
women is not allowed to grant must
be procured through the Student Gov-
ernment office.
Only a slight knowledge of such
rules should be necessary to make a
Michigan woman satisfied with her lot.
Until very recently the University
of Michigan has never employed wom-
en as instructors on its faculty, but
today there are almost 60 women
teaching in this institution who range
in rank from full professors to in-
structors. There are only two women
professors at the present time and
these are both in thf Medical school,
but working with them are four assis-
tant professors. There are 32 assis-
tants, 18 instructors and one asso-
c/iate professor. Ten years ago there
Were no women on the faculty at all.

In accordance with the movement
among Michigan women for more ex-
tensive self-government, the custom-1
,y lectures to entering women will'
tis year be under the supervision of
the Women's league. These talks,
which explain to the new women thel
functions of the league and other wo-1
men's activities on the campus, have
heretofore been given by the dean of
women. This year, with the advis-
ory committee taking Miss Jean Ham-
ilton's place, it was decided to adopt
a new plan.
The first lecture is to be given by
Miss Alice Lloyd, of the advisory com-
mittee, and will cover the history of
Miichigan, particularly in relation to
women. It is interesting to note that

It's very easy, unfortunately its a customary habit, for most students
to go on a spending spree the first few weeks of school. Don't do it.
You'll come to grief. You are mortgaging the remainder of your year's
allowance, and that's a bad policy. Especially is this so when most of
your purchases are for credit, and you have to pay up with the proceeds
from your allowance checks as you receive them from time to time.. You
will not only find yourself unable to pay your bills when you should, and
consequently get out of favor with the merchants who have trusted you,
but it often results in actual deprivation. You become unable to buy things
you actually need later on i the year.
Resolve to keep your expenditures within your allowance. Buy only-
what you can pay for immediately or with the surplus from your next check.
You'll save both for yourself and the merchants a great deal of worry.
Its a highly commendable practice to put yourself on a budget, allowing
a definite sum each month for each of your various classes of needs. A
handy account book can be purchased for a few cents that will aid greatly
in doing this. But remember that a budget that is not adhere to is worse
than useless. If you start it, resolve to limit yourself to the schedule you
have laid out for yourself.
The reward comes at the end of the year. You find yourself out of
debt around town, perhaps with money in the bank. At least there's no
urgent wires home for extra money nor embarrassing explanations to make
for failure to settle up. r
Try this year to spend less than you receive.
