Dance Will Be
Given As '37
Class Project,
Freshmen Plan To Have
Floor Show Including
Men As Well As Women
Freshmen women, meeting recent-
ly, decided that the annual freshman
project would again take the form
of a dance similar to last year's "Lan-
tern Dance."
This party, however, will have sev-
eral unique features, Wilhelmine
Carr, general chairman, said in ex-
plaining the project. The floor show,
which was an attraction of last year's
function, will be made different by
the fact that freshmen men, as well
as women, will participate in it.
Although no definite date has as
yet been set, the dance will probably
be held on or about May 27, Miss
Carr said.
Four other committee members to
assist Miss Carr were elected at the
mass meeting. They are Katherine
Kilman, chairman of decorations and
music, Mary J. Greenstone, chairman
of finance and publicity, Jane Ed-
monson, and Elaine Cobo. The last
two 'have not as yet been definitely
assigned to committees.
In addition to the dance, the fresh-
man women will take over the man-
agement of the League Open House
which will be held during the first
part of April. Further plans and com-
mittee appointments will be made

One Fourth Of Women Students
Self Supporting On Campus

Approximately one-fourth of the
wonen on camps are who ly or par-
tially self-supporting at the present
dcte, figures released by Byrl Fox
Bacher, a sistant dean of women, re-
veal. Of the 2,3C0 women students
now in the University, Mrs. Bacher
estimates, more than 372 are em-
ployed in some way, earning room
and board, board, part board, or
small sums of money in dormitories,
tea rooms, and offices.
The number of wonien earning
hoard or board and room or part
board in dormitories and tea rooms
totals 167, with 83 of those employed
in Mlosher-Jordan Halls, Betsy Bar-
bour House and Helen Newberry Dor-
mitory. Eighty-four are working in
the other dormitories, in the League
and in the tea rooms.
Eighty-seven women are working
for their board and room in private
homes; some of these earn board and
room and some, working additional
hours, are paid in cash at the rate of
30 cents an hour.
Part-time clerical and secretarial
work in offices and stores is being
done by 29 women who are paid at
the rate of 40 to 50 cents an hour,
while 113 women are registered for
occasional work such as child care,
clerking, serving, light housework and
typing, and are employed when re-
quests for these types of work come
from faculty and townspeople.
Women Earned $76,404
Last year, Mrs. Bacher said, women
earned a total of $76,404 and the
amount being earned this year will
be approximately the same. In one
place alone the weekly payroll for
women student employees totals $254
which means more than $1,000 for
one month. The monthly payroll for
the- larger dormitories totals about
$2,500, and the approximate sum
earned for domestic service and
maintenance in dormitories, tea
rooms, and homes is $5,500 a month.
This amount is exclusive of the sum
earned in secretarial and clerical po-
sitions for which there is no definite
More women are being employed
this year, stated Mrs. Bacher. Each
organization has taken on a few
more employees, partly because of the
NRA and partly because the indus-
trial situation in Ann Arbor has al-
most eliminated maid service from a
great many homes, so student help is
more in demand.
Scholarship ligh
Immediately at the close of school
a number of women go into summer
positions in which they are often able
to earn the whole of their expenses
for the next school year; others stay
out a year and work, returning to
school after an absence of one or tWo
semesters. Some supplement their
earnings by funds their families are
able to send them; others, particu-
larly seniors are able to obtain tui-
tion loans from the University.

about the very great majority of these
self-supporting women is that their
scholarship standing is high, said
Mrs. Bacher.
"For instance," she explained,
"when we are checking eligibility for
Beta Kappa Rho, sorority for women
who are employed, we rarely find an
ineligibility, and in very few instances
is this failure due to the woman's em-
ployment; it is usually the result of
inadequate preparation for college."
At the present time 114 women are
employed under the FERA, said Mrs.
Bacher, these students being used in
technical assistantships, clerical and
secretarial work, filing and catalog-
Situations In
Austria To Be
Lecture Topic
"Austria, a German Outpost To-
wards the Southwest," will be the
subject of a lecture to be given to-
night by Mr. Wolf-Isbrand Much un-
der the sponsorship of the Cosmo-
politan Club. After a brief historic
introduction showing the relation-
ship between Austria and Germany,
Mr. Much will talk about the politi-
cal and economic situation found in
Austria today.
Vienna was the capital of Ger-
many for several centuries, the em-
porers residing there from the 13th
to the early 19th century. Since 1866
Austria has been separated from the
other German states. "It was only
natural that the German Austrians
wanted to rejoin with the German
empire after the war," says Mr.
Much, "and that attitude is still
prevalent today."
Regarding the present political po-
sition of Austria, Mr. Much says,
"The struggle and bloody fight be-
tween the government and the so-
cialists represents the struggle of for-
eign powers and not the interest of
the population; the tools, as it were,
There will be a meeting of the;
Cosmopolitan Club tonight at 8
p.m. in Lane Hall at which Mr.
Wolf-Isbrand Much will be the
speaker. Following the lecture, in
place of the usual social hour the
Club will hold a get-together
of the socialists are from Czechoslo-
vakia and France." Mr. Much's talk
will stress the fact that the real in-
terest lies in the desire for a close
union with Germany.
He will attempt to show the role
German culture and civilization has
played in Austria. His speech will,
include views on the economic con-
ditions there. The industrial center
lies in the east near Vienna, but
industry is bad because there is no
market. This fact presents another
reason for the desire to join a larger
economic unit.
Mr. Much was born in Stralsund,
Germany, but has lived in Austria all
his life. He received the degree of
Ph.D. at the University of Vienna
where his father is a professor of
history of the early Teutonic tribes.
Having specialized in English and
German languages and literatures,
Mr. Much came to the University in
Sept. on a Carnegie fellowship in Li-
brary Science. He will illustrate his
talk with folk songs and slides.
