ickets Selling Rapidly;
Sororities Plan To Give
Breakfasts After Ball

One field at least that is safe and
sacred to masculine endeaver in a
day of general feminine encroach-
ment is the profession of engineer-
ing for if the records of the College
of Engineering are any index, the
presence of women in engineering is
not now, and is not tending to be-
come, an ordinary circumstance.
Of the 1,197 students now enrolled
in the engineering college, only two
are women. Both are seniors. Doris
Clinton, who entered the school as a
freshman, is studying aeronautics
and mechanical engineering, while
Eleanor Tarbell, who entered only
this year as a graduate from Tri-
State, is finishing a course in civil
This proportion of men to women in
the entire school is not at all out of
the ordinary, according to Mrs.
Camilla B. Green, assistant secretary
of the engineering college, who keeps
the records of Michigan's women en-
gineers. Peak enrollment was reached
in the war years, and then only eight
or nine were attending at the same

time. Then followed a space of six
years in which there were no women
in all the engineering college. Of
late the number seems stabilized
between two and six.
Reason for the scarcity of women
in this field is not that women can-
not learn engineering, for they do
take all the classes, even shopwork,
on an equal footing with the men,
and their scholarship compares fa-
vorably. The reason is, rather, that
it is difficult for them to find em-
ployment after graduation. Outside
of laboratories and drafting rooms,
there is little work for them. Com-
panies will not employ them for ex-
ecutive work because men would re-
sent taking orders from them.
From 1913 to 1927 nine women
were graduate here, five of whom
civil engineers, three were chemical
engineers, and one an electrical en-
gineer. Before that records show that
in 1895 Sara Parker, a structural en-
gineer, received her degree here.
