PRESENT OPPORTUNITIES FOR WOMENI
IN GEOGRAPHICAL FIELD ARE GOOD

Opportunities in Geography Are
Open to Prof esionals as Well
as Amateurs.
"Geography has not only a pro-
fessional field for women but an
amateur one as well," stated Prof.F

Del Delbridge to Play at Dance
to Benefit Undergraduate
Campaign Fund.
MEN WILL BE ADMITTED
Jeannie Roberts, '32, Will Act
as General Chairman for
The Affair'.
Completing a series of parties
which have been sponsored by the
League this year, a dance will be
held from 4 to 6 o'clock this after-
noon in the main ballroom of the
building. DeDelelbridge and his
orchestra, who have just finished
a season's run in the Blue Room
of the Book Cadillac hotel in De-
troit, will furnish the music.
the dance is the first of these
eventsh to be open to men. The other
affrairs. have been arran-ged by the
various houses and organizations
on campus, and were held every
month on Friday afternoons.
Three Groups in Charge.
Jeannie Roberts, '32, social chair-
man, is general chairman, and she
is being assisted by members of the
new and old social committees, and
members of the Undegraduate Cam-
paign fund committee.
"We need the aid of every Mich-
igan woman in order to make this
affair a success," stated Miss Rob-
erts. "The proceeds will go to the
Undegraduate Campaign fund, in
which there is a deficit this year,
so it is essential that the dance be
a success. This work is an integral
part of the activities of the League,
and undergraduate support is abso-
lutely necessary."
Dorothy McGuffie, '31, is chair-
man of the Undergraduate Cam-
paign fund committee, and Helen
Cheever, '31, Helen DeWitt, '33,
Helen Kitzmiller, '32, Jean Botsford,
'33, and Edwina Jenny, '32, are
members.
Tickets Still on Sale.

the social committee include Elea-
nore Walkinshaw, '32, Ruth Babbitt,
'32Ed., Pauine Richards, '32Ed.,
Elizabeth Eaglesfield, '33, and Mar-
garet O'Brien, '33. On the new social
committee for next year, Catherine
Heeson, '33, will have the position
of chairman, while in addition to
last year's members, Margaret Fer-
rin, '33, will serve.

Miss Lennon and Mrs. Tennant
have both been selected as "Zeta
Girl," which is the honor given to
the woman who has done the most
for the organization during the
year, and who has best lived up to
the ideals of the group.

"I have never enjoyed singing in
any production as much as the two
May Festival concerts, "St. Francis"
and "Boris Godunof," said Nelson
Eddy, baritone, in a recent inter-
view. "Mr. Moore is a wonderful
conductor and the chorus is ideal,
one of the finest in my experience."
"The group of !artists are all in-
teresting and pleasant to be with
and I have had marvelous treat-
ment in Ann Arbor. I should cer-
tainly like to sing in oratorio con-

engagements have been for a villian
or priest. Such is the case with
many natural comedians; they al-
ways want to play 'Hamlet,'" he
continued. It is interesting to note
that Mr. Eddy's greatest successes
have been in the heavy roles of
Wofrom in "Tannhauser" and in
"Die Gotterdaemerung."
"Singing just a few lines here
and there is very tantalizing and
a great nervous strain. It would be
marvelous to sing the whole four
acts of an opera and much easier
to do than to wait anxiously for a
part, then come in for a short while
only," he said.

high schools, and in the eastern col-
leges, but in the western universi-
ties men seem to be preferred.
However, I believe this is all due
to tradition. Women have not had
important positions in this field so
they do not seem to be offered to
them, but the positions are really
there if they want them. There are
not as many positions open and
they do not pay as well as those of
the men, but the reason for this is
that women marry and then quit
their positions. As soon as a woman
is really trained this always seems
bound to happen. So naturally the
best opportunities are not usually
offered to women," he stated.
Geography May be Amateur.
"However, there is, besides the
professional aspect, the amateur
one. This is the creation of a hobby.
It can be in any kind of work, and
geography offers splendid oppor-
tunity for it. After women have
reared their families they are left
without anything to do except
bridge and clubs. But if they had
developed a hobby during college
then is the time for them to con-
tinue it. Indeed one of the things
that your college education should
result in is the creation of a hobby.
