Women To Become Engineefs

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the fourth
in a series of interviews with women
who are individual in their selection
'-of courses of study.
There are only two women in the
University who ponder over advanced
'calculus or spend their time in quali-
tative lap as part of their major in
chemical engineering: Erna Lysett,
'39E, ad Charlys-Marion Lucht, 41E.
Both women like the work and find
Lhe courses interesting and entirely
within grasp. Miss Lysett, now a
junior, is secretary for W. L. Badger.
Manager of Consulting Engineering
Division of Dow Chemical Company,
and hopes in time to become a tech-
nical secretary, she says.
Reason For Interest Unknown
A graduate of Northwestern High
School in Detroit, she says that she
doesn't know just how she happened
to become interested in engineering
except that she has heard it all of
her life. And being the only woman
in a class of men doesn't bother her
at all, she admitted when asked about
the matter. "After all, I guess I'm
used to it by now," she said.
Miss Lucht, who is only a freshman
but who emphatically pointed out
that 'she has all intentions of con-
tinuing for the full four y6ars, comes
from Meadville High School in Mead-
ville, Penn.
Is Fond Of Mathematics
Asked why she ever chose engineer-
ing, Miss Lucht replied that she does
not exactly know, but that she has al-
ways been interested in mathematics
and chemistry and has made her best
marks in those subjects. "I guess it
really began as a joke Vack in high
school." she said. "One day I re-
marked to my trigonometry teacher
that I wished I could do something
