Select Seventtee lWomen Who Showe
Unusual Dancing Abiily in
FreshJan i 'n Pageant
Orchesis socty makes announce-
nent of its new members, chosen for
their ability and interest in dancing,
from the participants of the Freshman
pageant of last spring. They are the
following sophomore women, Dorothy
Beek, Alice C Kathryn Butler
Herna Grabo j, Virginia Lasse.
Janet Unden, Jean Wallace, Arlene
Heilman, Marjorie Muffley, Frances'
Sackett, Doris Renkenberger, Helen
Fellows, Jeanette Dressler, Dorothy i
McKee, Ailei . Yeo,7 Elfrieda Peterson,
and Margatet Stahl.
Enjoyment of the dance is the aim
of Orchesis. It was organized in 1925,
for the purpose of promoting this in-
terest among Mic,lgan women. MXss
Cummings, dancing 'instructor of ,last
year, sponsored the society from its
formation untiL; she accepted a posi-
tion at the University of Wisconsin
this fall. Last year Orchesis present-
ed the first dance drama ever given
at Michigan. This year its prograns
has been enlarged to incl-ude a more
pretentious drama at the end of the
year. The present plan is that work
on this be carried on throughout the
As far as organization is concerned,
Oi'chesis has not done much as ycy,
Better attendance and greater interest
will be worked for this season, how-
ever. Membership in the society will
take strictly into consideration, at-
tendance at meetings. At the meet-
ings, technique and the fundamentals
of dancing are, discussed.
News members are chosen after tie
annual pageai:t of Freshman .women.
Candidates for membership are sug-
gested by the membes with the help
of the dancing manager.
The hockey season has arrived, and
the teams are being organized. All
women who are interested are asked
to report to thb head of either the
intramural or interclass hockey
teams. Work is beginning on the
former, and will begin in the near
future on the latter.
The daily gynasium classes in
hockey number about 10 sectyas,
V, about 480 students, who are learning
the ground w hf the game. All
these students are eligible for inter-
class work, ad jtough their know-
ledge of the ghme is not thorough.
this is unnecessary as the game will
f be explained. Janet Jones, '29Ed of
the W.A.A., manager of the teams
s wishes all thoe who are interested to
report to her. treshmen are especial-
ly urged to d out. The hours of
practice will be in The Daily and post-
ed in Barbour gynmnasium the day of
the first practice. This year there
i will not be a second team, so that 4
great many more entries are expected.
On rainy days tl re will be indoor

Cora Declares Ann Arbor Weather Is
Ruinous To Usually Sweet Dispositions

Money, strange power in a world study, looking up opportunities for
where the economic order must of work, and so on. For those who ex-

necessity reign, controls with no
small strength even such an idealistic
and Utopian spot as a university.
Here with the acknowledged pur-
pose of learning both the good and
the ills of a troubled sphere and k1
bringing these into some sort of
harmony, we still admit the impossi-
bility of lessening the obvious benefits
of financial means and. of removing,
the terrors of its non-possession.
But this is somerhat in the vogue
when one harks back to the problem
which brought about such philosophic
thought. For it is, always, a prc/lem
or the clash of two lines of reasoningi
which compel us to assume our men-
tal "specs,"
Miss Vida Van Vlerab, in charge of
the University employment agency forI
stenographers and other office help
gives this answer to the inquiry.
"With regard to. working one's way
through the University, it is difficult
to give advice that will apply to each
individual. Young persons differ
largely from one a-nother in those
qualities which are required. What
thoroughly discourages one only gives
new determination to another; one
has health and strength that jermiit
him to stand work that is too much
for another. One fact remains, how-
ever, that cannot be gainsaid: a large
portion of the students at the Uni-
versity of Michigan are paying their
own way, in whole or in part, by their"
work during the school year and dur-
ing vacations..
"If you are an expert stenographer,
and can take dictation rapidly ai%
transcribe it both accurately and rap-
idly, you will have a great advantage
in securing employment. You ought
not to come to the University without
sufficient funds to pay all your saes,
and enough more to get well started
on the year's work while you are
familiarizing yourself with the situa-
tion, forming habits of concentrated

pect to earn a good part of their ex-
penses while at school. it is recom-
mended that classes be arranged as
much as possible during the mornings,
leaving the afternoons free for worn.
"Others are doing what you are
proposing to do; some are trying it
and making failures. It is "up to you"
to decide whether in your situation
and circumstances you have the qual-
ities and the real desire to make your
success likely."
Miss Beatrice Johnson, adviser to
women, has charge of all applications
for work other than stenography and
the like. Her figures show 52 women
working for room and board this Fall.
Although many women apply fo,
clerical work, Miss Johnson states
that there are no calls in that direc-
tion. There are, however, numerous
requests for assistants in cookisg.
There are also a la-rge group of Uni-
versity students willing to care for
children evenings, although 'there
have not been many opportunities in
this line to date.
"Whenever possible," Miss Johnson
maintains, "I would encourage student
loans rather than the girl attempting
to work her way through by any of
these latter means. I feel that these
students become sort of semi-worn
out and do not benefit fully from their
studies or the life about them." Wages
range from room and board to $10.00
or a little better a week.
Mr. John C. Christensen, who is at
the head of the University employment
department, commented on the situa-
tion. "The grades of these students,
in general, are high. Nevertheless,
they have little time for any outside
activities on the campus nor for a
great deal of, entertainment. The bet-
ter way, of course, is to procure suf-
ficient funds to at least partially pay
one's way through, leaving a smaller
portion which may be earned without
hardship during the year."

Chi Delta Phi will hold its first
meeting of this year at 7:30 o'clock,
on Wednesday night in room 204 of
the south wing of University Hall.
Plans for the coming year will be
discussed. The announcement of try-
outs will probably 'be within two

Honestly, Noah would have started
building his ark right now, if he were
encountering this Ann Arbor weatner.
Geographers rave about tropical
"showers" but when I come in con.
tact with any of them I'm going to
do some elocutioning on Ann Arbor
The more I see of Ann Arbor, the
more I am convinced that everything
conspires against a good disposition,
even to the weather. Why rave now?
Well, I started out with a perfectly
respectable looking pair of atmos-
phere chiffon hose encircling my-
(dubiously)- shapely ankles, a n d
when I reached my destination even
the atmosphere part of them was sup-
ersaturated! But, as the old saying
goes, the worst was yet to come!.
When the same hose dried, they looK-
ed like a cross between an alligator
and a mud turtle! It wasn,'t bad
enough , to walk through a drench'iing
rain, but on the way I encountered
what appeared to^ be professors, gaily
whizzing by in their various limousines
oblivious of what scientists term

H20, and what I prefer to term mis-
ery! Oh, I'm not objecting to the
professors running around in their
cars, but invariably I enco'untered
them at a cross walk, and became the
victim of a veritable barrage of mud.
I never prided myself on being hand-
some, but if I have any good features
now they are successfully concealed
behind a muddy mask! The men
force us members of the sweeter sex
to a strong-hold of pretentious dignity,
and this weather joins ranks against
us and robs us of even that weak tor-
tification. "Thr/e ain't no justice!"
Motarboard Society at Purdue Uni-
versity is sponsoring a Women's Glee
club, the first of its kind to be organ-
ized at this university. The cudb
plans to give several out of town con-
certs. This same society is also spon-
soring a women's orchestra. By uo-
ing this they feel that they will bring
women's activities to a more promin-
ent place on the campus.

Self-government in the matter of
administering house rules is to be
adopted by Martha Cook dormitory
this year. There will be no penalties
for latenesses, but each girl will be
put on her honor to be in on time
The honor system was given a thi ee
weeks' trial last year, and is expected
to prove extremely successful when
permanently adopted.
The Student Government Board ol
the dormitory will consist of severq
members: the house president, the
vice-president, secretary, treasurer, a
junior representative, a senior repre,
sentative, and the night chaperone
The night chaperone, who is one o
the students, is responsible for an-
swering the doorbell and taking
charge of signing-out slips.
Martha Cook dormitory, which is a
residence for juniors and seniors, had
the highest scholastic average. last
year of all organized houses on th<
campus. Its average was slightly
above 84 per cent.

world for a long time as workers in
garment factories, textile plants, and
other occupations where a woman's
skilled fingers are needed, but it is
comparatively recently that women
have entered machine shops. "They
first entered this field as shop wori:-
ers during the world war," says an
executive of the Hoover Steel Ball
Co. of Ann Arbor, and they soon
p-oved that 'they could do the lighter
work as well as men could. The
development of industrial machinery,"
says the executive, "gave the woman
more opportnuity along this line be-
cause they could now do with ma-
chines what "had required a man's
strength to do. Today a 'goodly per-
centage of shopworkers are women,.
who as unskilled laborers manipulate
the less complicated machines and do
inspection work of various kinds."
"In most cases the wage scale is
about half that for men. There are
several reasons for this. Women are
physically unable to work for as long

be given recesses or a change of oc-
cupation. Another contributing factor
in the lower wage scale is the fact
that companies must spend more in
maintaining better working and sani-
tary conditions for women. But the
main reason for this difference is the
fact that the women themselves a e
willing to work for what they can
"This low wage scale reduces the
production cost; therefore it is an ad-
vantage to employ women wherever
practical. Another advantage," ac-
cording to the Hoover executive," is
that there is less labor turnover
among women employees because they
do not have the incentive that a nian
has to better their positions."
"There is a question, however, now
that women have won a place in the
shops as to whether they will retain
it. For the women who must earn and
who have neither proficiency nor train-
ing in anything else the shop ohers
an opportunity that was not open be-
