MlISS Pterkelis r Say
.job Is ("~In a Iibh
With Family Life
Miss Frances Perkins, secretary of
labor and the first woman ever to
hold a cabinet position, is the glow-
ing example of the modern woman
in public life. Efliciency, capability,
and boundless energy are Madam
Secretary's paramount qualities.
This famous woman, who is in
private life Mrs. Paul C. Wilson, wife
of an efficiency expert and mother
of a 17-year-old daughter, believes
that a woman's family need not in-
terfere with work outside the home.
It is her opinion that "intelligence
and boundless physical energy" are
necessary to the woman who wants
to carve herself a career, but that
there need be no conflict between the
job of running a household and the
job of supervising the labor problems
of the nation.
"Has the fact that I am a woman
been a handicap to me in my work?
Well," she laughed, "I have been
a woman so long that I am used to
the handicap."
Miss Perkins, who has made the
tricorne hat famous, dresses in a dis-
tinguished manner, speaks with a
elipped Boston accent, and uses her
hands in quick, nervous gestures
when she speaks. She came from a
lecture in Detroit, spoke here, at-
tended a reception in her honor, and
left yesterday morning for Grand
Rapids, where she is scheduled to
speak. A hard program, but Miss
Perkins, accustomed to a 24-hour{
day, doesn't seem to mind it. She
speaks, smiles, and greets one without
a trace of fatigue.r
Delta Omicron, national musical
sorority, will give a musicale and tea
at 5:15 p.m. today at Mrs. W. W.
Newcomb's, 1245 Ferdon Road. Thet
soloists of the program are Harriet
Crow, '35, soprano, Mona Hutchings,
violinist, and Sarah Lacey, '34SM, pi-

petition. These dancers include Har-

Returning to Ann Arbor for the
first time since she was taken from
the University Hospital several weeks
ago, Charlotte Simpson, sensational
male lead of the 1933 Junior Girls
Play, "Love on the Run," was an
honored guest at the final perform-
ance of "Gang's All There" last night
in Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Miss Simpson, who would have
graduated with the 1934 education
sch ool class, was onre of a group of
woman students seriously injured
when! returning from the Chicago
football game in November, 1933,
hey lost their way in a fog and
their car crashed into a passenger
train near South Lyon. For a time
at University Hospital it was feared
that Miss Simpson, at least, might
not recover, and she has been able
to walk for only a week. She re-
turned to her home in Grand Rap-
ids after more than three months in
the hospital.
