their daughter, Barbara Jean Frit-

Detroit. Mr. Phillips, a graduate of

At a party given by Helen Jean
Edwards at her home Saturday, the
date was announced on which Miss
Marion Hodson, '38, of Ann Arbor,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas
Hodson, will be married to Louis La-
don, '38, of Ann Arbor. son of Mr.
and. Mrs. Frances Landon. -
The wedding will take place June
18 in the Michigan League,. when Miss
Hodson and Mr. Landon have grad-
uated from the University.
Mr. and Mrs. Edward Wasey of
Birmingham, announced the engage-
ment of their daughter, Eleanor Wa-
sey, to Donald Maentz, son of Mr.
and Mrs. Henry Maentz, of Allegan,
at a party Saturday afternoon in the
bride's home.
Miss Wasey, '37, is a member of
Collegiate.Sorosiswat the University.
Mr. Maentz .graduated from Leland
Stanford University.
The Spanish,, Club has elected the
following as their officers for the
coming -year: Alfred -.Hower, presi-
dent; Margaret Carr, vice-president;
Carmen McKell, secretary and Felipe
Silva, treasurer.

The practical aspect of business ad-
ministration was the main factor op-
erating in the decision of Mary Ben-
nett and Janet Jackson, both '38BAd,
to major in this course.I
Both women believe that it will of-
fer them an opportunity to advance'
beyond ordinary stenographic work
into something more specialized. Miss
Bennett -said, "It's hard to say just
what .got me into it, except that I
wanted a job, and thought it was the
best training I could get." She is
majoring in marketing, and hopes'
to, do work in this field after graduat-
ing. She explained the scarcity of
women in business administration by
the fact that most of them have not
heard of it, adding that more and
more of them' are beginning work in
it every year.
Merchandising Offers Future
"I think the best opportunity for a
woman is doing merchandising for
department or women's stores," Miss
Jackson stated. Marketing, adver-
tising, (including copy-writing,) and
a general course all offer a good fu-
ture for women too, she feels. Her
plan now is to begin insurance work
as a secretary. from which she hopes
to work up to something more.
"The whole value of the course,"
Miss Jackson remarked, "is in teach-
ing you how to approayh problems
and in' trainimig your thinking along
business rather than purely mechan-
ical lines. It also gives you a good
insight into how business problems
She lists the fact that the school

Collegiate Tournament
The archery club has entered a
team in the ninth annual women's
inter-collegiate telegraphic archery
tournament, Irene Sabo, '39Ed., man-
ager, announced yesterday. The
tournament is sponsored by the Na-
tional Archery Association.
All club members are requested to
report at the regular meeting at 4:30
p.m. today on Palmer Field to shoot
off the major portion of the required
Columbia Round, Miss Sabo said.
The women who will participate
in the meet are Viola Rugis, '39Ed,

Kraus, '41 and Miss Sabo.

Two Find No Prejudice -
The two find no prejudice against
them, and they are treated on an
equal basis with the men, they say.
They don't believe that women pay
more attention to little, unimportant
things than men do, and don't think
Sthat there, is any difference in their
attitude towards studies. Conserva-
tions are mostly about jobs, getting
work and sports. "They're all pretty
anxious to get out and get ahead,"
Miss Jackson says.
All in all, it's a very good course
for women, they agree, and they
"really don't know why mor women
don't take it, except that they con-
sider it a man's field."
