"Few plays illustrate more effec-
tively the comic spirit which pre-
vailed on the English stage from 1660
to 1700," said Prof. Paul Mueschke
of the English department. "Wycher-
ley's dialogue, always scintillating, is
characteristic of thbe witty conversa-
tion which was cultivated by Charles
II and his gay courtiers. The oppor-1
tunty of seeing a revival of a Restor-
ation play is a rare occasion which
should be welcomed by faculty and
students alike." .
Names Four Ralts
"'The Gentleman Dancing Mas-
ter' is rich in farcial situations and
presents four exceptionally witty
roles," he added, "that of Hippolita,
the heroine, who wishes to avoid
marrying a conceited fop approved
by her father; that of Sir James
Formal, who likes to parade his pen-
chant for Spanish manners and
dress; that of M. de Paris, who is
equally ardent in his preference for
the manners and dress of France;

by accident, finds himself in situa-

Siiccess Is Attain
Graduates Of En
Although all the departments of
the College. of Engineering are open
to women, very few take advantage
of the opportunity, according to Mrs.
Camila B. Green, assistant secretary
of the college.
There were more women enrolled
during the first two decades of this
century than in recent years. During I
the war the number increased con-
siderably due to the need for women
fitted to take over the duties of men.
A special bulletin of the University
in 1918 stated that due to the serious
need for women to carry out certain
wor k in connection with the produc-
tian and inspection of war material,
a special course training women to
this end was being initiated.
War New Field
It was a new field at the time, one
for which older men were not fitted
and which therefore, was turned over
to young college women. It proved
very popular, for manufacturers as-
sured the women that, should they
prove satisfactory, they would be kept
on after the war in a very profitable
Drafting and tracing courses were
also scheduled for women, due to the
unprecedented demand for them in
this type of work. Women were urged
to prepare themselves for these pro-
fessions as a patriotic duty, for the
young men, then engaged were badly
needed at the front. Michigan was
not alone in this field, for it was
taken up by other colleges through-
out the country.
Opportunrities Open
But vwai:time is not the only op-
portunity for women in engineering.
From the record of previous gradu-
ates it is evident that there is .a con-
siderable number of openings in the
field. Marian Parker, 95, the .first
woman to graduate from the en-
gineering school here, became con-
nected with an architectural firm in
New York and did ,considerable work
there. She designed the structural
steel construction on the Broad Ex-
change, the largest office building of
its time. Work on the Flatiron
building, the Tribune Building and
the Whitehall is also credited to her.
Receive Positions
In 1915 two very brilliant women I
received degrees. Miss Alice Goff
was accepted under great protest by
the Trussed Concrete Steel Company
in Youngstown, Ohio. Later this
isame company wrote a letter to the
engineering department asking "have
you any more women like Miss Goff?"
Miss Hazel Quick, who graduated
the same year has been employed
University Delegates

She was employed for a time by the May 1 for the recreational leader-rT
Detroit Edison Company and then ship class. i r Faf

by the Rochester Light and Power
Company. While with the latter she
took over the duties of the Home
Service Department.
Her work consisted in planning the
lighting for different rooms of model
houses. With a group of electricians
she toured the country equipped with
a revolving stage divided into four
sections. Each section was furnished
as a separate room. She lectured on
the advantages of indirect lighting,
a feature that was then in its infancy,
demonstrating her lectures with ac-
tual models.
Her superiors were elated for they
believed they had opened a new field
for women. Miss Smith, however,
feels that the college woman has
little place here unless she is willing
to start out with menial tasks and
work up gradually. She recommends
courses in public speaking, and color
work as aids in this work.
