Five Out of Nine on Committee
for Faculty Relations
Are Women.
Committee for Student Contact
Includes Six Women in
"Women have done as much in
each group of committees as men
have done," declared Miss Ellen
Gammack yesterday, in speaking of
Religious Emphasis Week, which
started yesterday and will continue
until March 1.
Miss Gammack's statement is
given proof in that five out of the
nine members on the committee
for faculty relations are women.
Roberta Reed, Lois Peoples, Geral-
dine Grover, Gertrude Cook, and
Katherine McMurray are serving on
this committee.
On the committee for student
contact six of the representatives
are women: Helen Cheever, Kather-
ine Wilcox, Ruth French, Kather-
ine Van Zoren, Bertha Howard, and
Jane Yearnd. This committee serves
as a connecting link between those
in charge of Religious Emphasis
Week and the students. Women in
each sorority house and dormitory
were appointed to inform the other
women in the group concerning the
proposed plans and to ask for their
Miss Gamack feels that it is not
too much to ask of an undergrad-
uate woman, who came to the Uni-
versity of Michigan to gain knowl-
edge and experience in every line,
to take one week from her four
years in which to study something
which concerns everyone. "It would
be a good idea," continued Miss
Gammack, "to ask everyone to
make a list of the things she did,
during the week andthen see just
how many of them were more im-
portant to her than a study of her
religion. I am afraid the result
would be rather disappointing."

A prize is being given for the most
attractive booth and the one which
takes in themost money.
One change this year is to be the
entertainment offered in Sarah
Caswell Angell hall. In former
years a vaudeville skit of some sort
has been given, but the only vaude-
ville this year will be given in the
booths. Barbara Braun, chairman
of booths says that the new plan 1
will be announced soon.
As in the past there will be a
shoe shining booth, a fish pond, a
manicuring booth, and one for sil-
houettes. Everything costs one
cent, from the time one enters to
the time of leaving.
Women Novelists Tell Working
Habits in 'Marix'. f
Working habits of some of the
most widely-known members of
Theta Sigma Phi are detailed in an
article in the February issue of
"Matrix," published by that society.
Fannie Hurst, the famous novel-
ist, writes for six hours each day,
because "a shorter period would
show too little accomplishment."
Her writing day begins at 9 o'clock
in the morning, after an early walk
through Central PFark with her
dogs. Miss Hurst is quoted as say-
ing: "There are no fixed rules you
can lay down about writing. All you
can do is write. The rest will take
care of itself. If you are filled with
the torment to write, you will have
to keep on writing."
Zona Gale does all her writing
by hand first and then copies it on
the typewriter, lnter having it re-
typed by an expert typist. Miss
Gale, when deep in composition,
does not wish to be disturbed for
any reason.
Temple Dailey is roported as say-
ing that her writing day extended
from 8 o'clock in tIe mornmg until
12:30 in the afternoon, beginning
immediately after breakfast. Usual-
ly she writes on her own typewriter,
but part of one novel she dictated
because of illness.

Physical Education
Holds Opportunities
for Many Teachers
"As in all relatively new profes-
sions, physical education is full of
opportunities for leaders. The peoa
ple's attention is being drawn morej
and more towards athletics, thus
creating a greater demand for
teachers and directors in this field,"
said Miss Lauie Campbell, profes-
sor of physical education, recently.
Miss Campbell stressed the fact
that although the teaching profes-
sion in general is overcrowded,
there have never been e n o u g h
teachers of physical education.
Among the graduates who have
gone out from the major school in
the University, she claimed that
there were many who have gone as
municipal playground directors,
many who are in charge of the
athletic activities of industriall
workers, as well as those who have
gone into organizations such as Girl
Scouts, Campfire Girls, the Nation-

Women were in no small way
responsible for the sudden furror
which arose in the past week over
the agitation for the world court
movement. For as a result of the

for the movement. Viola Schubert
addressed one to Royal S. Cope-
land and received a telegram in
reply which turned out to be a
verbatim copy of replies to other
letters. It read something to this
effect: "Will keep your letter before

Out of 25 telephone companies

Greater ability to serve the public is the rea-
son for the Bell System - made up of the
American Telephone and Telegraph Compa-
ny and its 24 associated telephone companies.
The Bell System is operated by these 24
associated companies, each attuned to the
area it serves. Each enjoys the services of the
staff of the American Company, which is
continually developing better methods. Each

benefits from the work of the Bell Telephone
Laboratories and Western Electric - scien-
tific research and manufacturing branches of
the System.
Bound together by common policies and
ideals of service the Bell System companies
work as one. In helping to administer this
$4,000,000,000 property, men find real
business adventure. The opportunity is there!
