Five Senior Women To Lead Lantern

Night Line Of Marc

Will No Longer
have Leaders
Former Heads Announced
By General Chairman
Will Lead Procession
A departure from tradition will oc-
cur when five senior women only lead
the line of march on Lantern Night,
Monday, May 23, Norma Curtis, '39,
general chairman of the event an-
nounced yesterday.
It has been the practice in former
years to invite members from each
class to join the line as leaders and
this year those leading will be only
the holders of five of the major posi-
tions for women in campus activities.
Hope Hartwig, former president of
the 'League, Mary Johnson, former
president of the Women's Athletic As-
sociation, Angelene Maliszewski, for-
mer president of the Judiciary Coun-
cil, Harriet Shackleton, former pres-
ident of Panhellenic Association, and
Helen Jesperson, former president of
Assembly, have been chosen to lead
the procession. -
All Women Invited
All women on campus are invited
to take part in Lantern Night, a tra-
ditional event to honor senior women.
The line of march will form at 7:30
p.n. in front of the General Library.
The seniors, who will wear caps and
gowns and carry lanterns, will be es-
corted to Palmer Field by underclass-
men, the line being led by the Uni-
versity Band. The traditional block
1V will be formed on Palmer Field at
the close of the procession. Mary
Alice MacKenzie, '39, is in charge of
the line of march.
'Sing To Fllow March
The Lantern Night Sing will be
held on Palmer Field after the line
of march. All sororities, dormitories,
and independent zones have been
asked to take part in this event, which
will be the first all-campus women's
sing to be held on this campus. The
number of members of each group
participating in the sing will be lim-
ited to 35, Miss Curtis said.
A cup will be awarded by the
Women's Athletic Association to the
winner of the sing, according to Miss
Curtis. In case of rain the affair
will not be held.
Survey Made
Sho wig Ideas
About Religion
There is a God who may be reached
by prayer, declare 91 per cent of the
women of America contacted in a na-
tion-wide survey conducted by the
Ladies' Home Journal to determine
what the women of this country think
about religion.
The same percentage believe in a
life after death,. writes Mr. H. F.
Pringle, author of the Journal article,
which emphasizes the fact that Cath-
olics, Protestants, Jews and women
with no formal religious affiliations
agree on these fundamental creeds.
The survey further indicates that
75 per cent of the women who re-
ceived religious training want to give
their children the same training. The
dissenting minority feel, in general,
that there should be "more freedom
of choice, less rigidity" in religious
Women Approve of Religion
To the women brought up without
religious instruction of any kind was
put the question, "Would you allow

your children to grow up without it?
An emphatic "no" was the response
of 74 per cent., I
In the face of this strong manifes-
tation of faith in a Supreme Being, it
is a startling fact uncovered by the
survey that 53 per cent of these Chris-
tians do not attend church regularly.
Furthermore, the churches of New
England and of the South draw the
:majority of consistent church-goers,
which number 47 per cent. This is
all true in spite of the fact that
church m'embership has not decreased
noticeably in the past decade, Pringle
writes, for 76 per cent of the women,
who represent all ages and sects, are
church members.
Youth Still Believes
The idea that youth has cast aside
the religion of its fathers and fore-
fathers is undermined by the sur-
vey findings which show that 87 per
cent of the women under 30 believe in
God, 88 per cent believe in the im-
mortality of the soul and 72 per
cent are church members.
The long discussed plan of uniting
the Protestant churches into one was
favored by only two groups-the di-
vorced women and the women not
having any church connections. Na-
tionally, only 48 per cent, Pringle
writes, endorsed joint worship of the

selor to foreign students, said.

Few Teaching Positions Open To Womet

College Professors Need
Aid Of Wives Socially,
Asserts Dean Nicolson


The scarcity of good teaching posi-
tions open to women in coeducational
colleges is due largely to the fact that,
women have no wives, stated Miss
Marjorie Nicolson, Dean of Smith
College and a graduate of the Univer-;
sity, in a recent correspondence with
The Daily.
Wives are a priceless aid to college
professors, not only in keeping a
peaceful, well-arranged home but in
doing the routine work of their re-
search for them, Miss Nicolson be-
lieves. The absent-minded professor
who dresses dowdily and is hazy about
social obligations is fondly tolerated
as a campus character. However,
Miss Nicolson states, no allowance is
made for the lady scholar who in her
quest for knowledge forgets to mend
a run in her stocking or neglects de-
tails for an important dinner-party.
Coeducational colleges today offer
women graduates very little oppor-
tunity for advancement in the teach-
ing field in comparison to the number
of women they train for teaching po-
sitions, Miss Nicolson has found.
Therefore ambitious women are
forced to turn to women's colleges,
where research material is much more
The best, women's colleges have a
broadening policy of employing half
men and half women on their teach-
ing staff, while coeducational col-
leges seldom have a fair proportion
of women, Miss Nicolson believes. The
few women who are employed in state
institutions are largely in the low-
est rank of assistant.
Biology is against women in many
respects, Miss Nicolson states. Schools
hesitate to give them expensive basic
training because of the probability
that the experience will be wasted if
the woman marries. Even if her mar.-
riage does not interfere with her
career, child-bearing often forces her
to give up her work.
A contributing factor to the scar-
city of women professors. Miss Nicol-
son pointed out, is the fact that they
are too conscientious. Since they are
content to do tedious but necessary
work at pay much smaller than a
man with the same training would
accept. only the most ambitious rise
beyond the rank of instructor.
Another difficulty with women as aj
group, according to Miss Nicolson, is
that they have made very few con-
tributions to the higher realms of

philosophical thought. or to creative
fields such as art and music. There-
fore colleges prefer to give fellowships
in these subjects to men.
Dean Alice Lloyd, who attended the
University at the saie time as Miss
Nicolson, agrees heartily with her
opinions on this subject. When asked
how the University of Michigan com-
pared with other colleges in this re-
spect, she replied that although this

school is conservative in offering
teaching positions to women, it is no
more so than any of the large state
Michigan was totally a ran's col-
lege for 33 years before women were
allowed to enter as students, she re-
called. In time, she believes, women
will overcome the prejudice against
them and their own lack of training.
