Women Gain Prestige
Today, however, the Michigan
women has come into her own on
the campus and a mental, emotional
and physical evolution has taken
place in her make-up.
It had been feared that the girl
could not adjust herself to the nerve-
wracking routine of college life. She
would find it too difficult to master
the studies already familiar to the
men, it was believed. Today it is
feared that the woman student will
walk away with most of the honors.
In several fields such as sociology and
education women now excel the men.
Wome Enter All Sports
Physically, there has been a con-
siderable change. The women's
bloomered calisthenics of a few years
ago have been replaced by active
sports, before undertaken only by
men. There is no men's sport, except
football possibly, at which the woman
does not try her skill.
The Victorian squeamishness about
sacrificing all for a career is also
passing out of existence. The Uni-
versity woman's ideas regarding mar-
riage and a career are quite a con-
trast to the pre-war ideas of the
first woman student. Whereas the
old-fashioned girl believed, and
quite sincerely, that marriage and a
career could not mix, the girl of
today feels that the two are insep-
arable. What every undergraduate
wants from college nowadays is a
well-rounded background for her fu-
ture family life. Girls plan on hav-
ing four or five years for an active
career after graduation, and then

ing. Sally Kenny, '38, will be in
The team will be entertained at
lunch by the Ann Arbor Hockey Club
and taken on a tour of the campus
in the early afternoon. Because of
a match scheduled with an all-Mich-
igan team Saturday in Detroit, they
will not play a game here, but it is
hoped that they will give a demon-
station of the different hockey plays.
The team is composed of forwards:
Dr. Garlie Hodges, Margaret Knight,
May Pierce, Jean McKay, E. McRae
and L. Winspear; halfbacks: Mabel
Cashmore, M. Taylor, who captains
the team, D. Sholl and F. Faul; full-
backs: M. Haywood, E. Thompson, A
McKinney and E. Tazewell. F. L.
Danye, M. Fox and A. Margarey are
the delegates.
Stopping here on its way to the
national hockey tournament to be
played in Philadelphia, the group is
one of the six foreign teams touring
the country.
The Institute of Aeronautical Sci-
ence held an organization meeting
at 7:30 last night in Room 348 at the
West Engineering Building at which
85 members were present.
The main speaker, Wilbur Nelson,
'35, told of the workings of the Lock-
heed Airplane Co. with which he is
connected. Plans were also discussed
for the trip to Selfridge Field which
the club is to take Saturday to see
the Mitchell Trophy race.
