the winning team was 19 points,
'while Martha Cook and Kappa
Delta, both with a total of 15, tied
for second place. Fourth place was
taken by the Pi Beta Phi team
, which scored 12 points. The meet
has aroused a great deal of inter-
est, judging from the large entry
list.Seventy-five women represent-
' ing 15- houses were entered in the
; meet.
Of Ithe fifteen houses entered,
11 scored, showing that the fight
was not at all one-sided. Eighteen
of the individual women segred.
Wins, By Small Margin
Though the organization scores
were close, individual scores showed
ice even less difference. Dorothy Fels-
ke, Kappa Delta, led with a point
total of 11, with Virginia Lossee, Pi
.Beta Phi, a close runner-up. She
'lost by only one point. These two
girls were the outstanfling figures
of the meet. leading their" closest
competitors by a wide margin.
There were seven events in- the
" meet. The most popular seemed
to be the elementary side stroke
for speed, which drew 48 entries.
This is rather a remarkable num-
her of contestants for any event.

women get work through relatives
or friends, she observes, and this
means that they do not come to
Ithe Advisors' office. There are also
many students who continue the
same job from one year to the next,
and this does not always come to
Cthe attention of the office. Final-
ly, there is, according to Miss
Johnson, a very small number ofj
women holding positions who do'
not wish it known that they are
financially stressed because of their
fear of social disapproval.
During the year ending August,
1928, Miss Johnson placed students
in positions the returns from which
totaled $34,744.24. Of this amount,
$6,197 was earned by 98 women in i
miscellaneous jobs, while 75, work-
ing for room and board, earned the
equivalent of $24,192. Part-time
jobs for summer school students
had a value of $1,143.44, while full-
time summer positions { netted
$3,211.80 to 47 women.
The motives which women have
for working during the summer,
vacation are varied, Miss Johnson!
explains. One type of woman
works simply to avoid having to sit
around home all summer without
a definite occupation. Such stu-
dents are content to earn merely
room and board as camp counsel-
lors or governesses.
At the other extreme, Miss John-
son places those students whose
education depends on what they
earn during the summer. These
women must earn cash for tuition,
books, class dues, and incidental
expenses. The three principal
sources of jobs for such women are
summer hotels, offices, and shops..

LOJeLaia, VU Lm LUrLasm-
bers provides employment for 10
students, table serving in dormitor-
ies and tea rooms takes care of 56,
and miscellaneous work in dor-
mitories is done by 25. In addition,'
50 women are taking care of chil-
dren, doing housework, and an-j
swering other spasmodic calls, and
20 are doing odd jobs, such as re-
porting for newspapers, nursing,
tutoring, and clerking. Further-'
more, as a conservative estimate,1
Miss Johnson suggests that 125
women are employed without as-
sistance of the Advisors' office.1
This makes a total of 361 students
For several reasons, Miss John-1
son finds it impossible to give an
exact estimate of the number of
women students employed. Manyl

Michigan Women To
Show New Styles
Hudson's Georgian Room will
be the setting for the Women's
League fashion show sponsored by
the Undergraduate Campaign Fund
on the afternoon of Saturday, April,
6. Miss Pauline Post who is the
director of the Style Lecture Bu-j
reau at Hudson's says that not only
is the Georgian Room, which is
the largest dining room on the 13th
floor, to be devoted to the fashion
show, but many other features will
also make the event a success and
well worth attending.
Tea will be served by the com-
pany for those who wish to remain
afterwards, for 50 cents, and bridge
cards and talleys will be furnished.
However, the fashion show itself
will be attraction enough. Twenty
models have been selected, whose
names will be announced in a few
days. These are girls picked as
best representative of all types of
Michigan students in size from 14
to 16. All styles of dresses will be
modeled. from sports to the most
formal of formals. And besides allI

Girls Who Are


Tonight is the last night for the
Freshman Pageant tryouts, and not
only girls who have not yet tried
out are urged to come, but also
any who may have tried already
for the interpretive dancing and
wish to be in the folk dancing as
well. Girls who wish to take part
in the singing may also participate
In the dancing. Tryouts are be-
ing held from 4:00 to 6:00 o'clock in
Sarah Caswell Angell Hall in Bar-
hour Gym.
The results of the tryouts will
be announced before spring vaca-
tion as the committee wishes to
have all their plans completed by
that time.
The story of the' pageant is such
that there are parts for children;
both boys and girls, for sprites; for
minstrels, milkmaids, woodcutters,
and village folk. So, whether a
girl is short or tall, likes to take
masculine or feminine parts there.

With the advent of spring and
urgent requests by earnest, hard-
working, young students to fond
parents for an increase in the
weekly stipend for the Easter out-
fit, it brings to mind the Easter
fashion parade of women and men
of past eras.
The dear young things of .the
eighteenth century were concerned
with yards and yards of lace toI
trim pantalettes. according to fash-
ion's latest decree, while young
brothers were sent out to find the
best barrels staves to serve as hoops.
The men of that time were not so
modest as. the men of today and
believed in wearing knee breechesG
which would display their shapely,I
masculine legs.
In the nineteenth century the
weaker sex were burdened with the
heavy duty of public sanitation.
Yards and yards of goods trailed
behind them and were effective as
a means of keeping the streets

clean. The young men of that time
had developed a sense of modesty
but retained with. it a sense 'of
comfort. Their trousers now came
down to their ankles but were nar-
row at the bottom which gave then
complete freedom in walking.
..Ah, today! how things have
changed! The modern young wom-
en have cast off false modesty with
the rest of the feminine moth-eaten
traditions and customs, -and have
combined smartness with comfort.
Today's style allows legs to be use-
ful as well as ornamental. The
poor men! How one's heart aches

days as they painfully pursue their
