Figures from the office of advisors
. vto women disprove'the present idea
Fo that women attend college primarily
to have a good time. Since last spring,
more than 125 women have found posi-
tions through the employment bureau
maintained by this office, and are con-
sequently able to support themselves
wholly or partially while in the Uni-
versity.
Many women who are entering as
freshmen, write to the office and ask
for positions for the following year.
A list is then sent to them bearing the
names of persons in Ann Arbor who
desire assistance of some sort. Sixty
women are working for their room and
board in private homes, while 15 are
working for room only, and 15 for
board only. This consists in waiting
on table or doing general housework.
At present, the bureau has 60 names
on file, with the type of position pre-
ferred, attached. A careful record -of
;all women is kept, in order to prevent
any from overdoing, and to keep the
- college work from suffering.
Beside housework and waiting on
table, other positions are open to wo-
f,men, and are obtainable through this
~fee Two 'women have been placed
as cashiers in theaters, some in doc-
..tors' offices, and others in secretarial
8 or clerical work. From those work-
ing for room and board, a minimum
of four hours of housework -or mis-
cellaneous assistance is required. For
other housework, a salary of 40 cents
an hour is receive'd, or where cooking
is included, the amount Is somewhat
higher. Many women, also, take care
of the children of the families where
they stay, either remaining with them
at night when the parents are out,
or taking them to and from school.
In order to widen the field where
I positions may be obtained, Miss Alice
Lloyd, of the committee of advisors to
women, is sending out circular let-
ters, to all the business men of Ann
' Arbor, who may be interested izt hav-
ing part time work done. They will
return the questionnaire, stating
whether they wish assistance, and if
wo, of what kind. Since Miss Lloyd
took over the charge of ths bureau,
two weeks ago, she has placed 60 wo-
f men.

ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION I
OFFERS HIKING POINTS
Organized hikes for W.A.A. honor
points will start today when the first
hike of the season will take place.
This hike, organized exclusively for
freshman women, will be much
shorter in length than the later ones
and will have as its purpose the dis-
play of the beauty spots and tradi-
tional tramping grounds of Ann
Arbor.
This year the same system in
awarding honor points for hiking will
prevail as formerly, that of one point
a mile. The shortest hike for which
one may receive credit is five miles
and the minimum credits which one
may have in hiking in one season is
25 points.
All women desiring to go on this
first hike should meet at Barbour
gymnasium at 4 o'clock, today. Fur-
ther information about hiking may be
obtained by calling Betty Smithers,
21716.
GIRLS' GLEE CLUB WILL
EXTEND TRYOUTS TODAY
Tryouts for the University Girls'
Glee club will be continued from 3:30
to 6 o'clock Friday, in studio 216,
School of Music. Although the actual
number of tryouts has been large, the
club is having the same difficulty as
the men's organization in finding the
right proportion of different voices.
There will be no regular meeting of
the Glee club on Tuesday due to Miss
Hunt's absence from Ann Arbor. The
first meeting will be held Tuesday,
October 19, by which time it is hoped
that the new members will have been
selected.
CLUB WILLINITIATE
Thirty-two new women will be
initiated into the physical education
club tonight. -'his club is composed
entirely of the women enrolled in the
physical education school afid has as
its purpose the binding together of.
these women that they may become
acquainted more rapidly. The initia-
tion will start at 4 o'clock and dinner
will be served in Barbour gymnasium.
There will be dancing duing the ev-
ening.
More than 200 delegates from all
parts of the country attended the re-
cent convention of the Daughters of
Scotia in New York. The Daughters
of Scotia is the largest organization
of Scottish women in America.

In Freshnan Groups!
In order to gain the greatest pos- I
sible efficiency and secure the best}
results in their work of aiding fresh-
men women, the members of the lead-
ership commission of the Y. W. C. A.
have planned to divide all freshmen
women who are interested in the work
of the committee intb groups of 10 to
15, with two members of the commis-
sion in charge of each group. The
groups will meet every two weeks for
a discussion of campus problems
Tentative plans have been made to
conduct the freshmen through the
museum, Martha Cook building, and
the Clements library.
The work already carried out by the
commission has been decidedly suc-
cessful. During registration, an in-
formation booth was conducted in
Barbour gymnasium at which more
than 500 "frosh bibles" were given
out to entering women. The commis-
sion also aided several girls in ob-
taining rooms.
Hockey Tournamenti
To Start Next Week
Hockey is proving so popular with
University women that a new hockey
tournament has been organized which
will be started next week. This tourn-
ament is different than any other overE
organized and will be one just between
the regular gymnasium classes com-
posed almost entirely of women in the
literary college.
Each hockey class is large enough
at the present time to make up two
hockey teams and it is planned that
in each class these two teams will
play to determine the winner. There
are eight regular hockey classes now.
The winners of each class will play
each other until the winner of all the
classes is determined. Captains are
being chosen at the present time and
it is their business to impart enthus-
iasm and create a spirit for these
games. It is hoped that in this way
